Claire and Sean's Intimate Maui Wedding at Olowalu Plantation House


Claire and Sean wanted to have an intimate Maui wedding with their family and close friends. They’re fellow Oregonians, so we immediately connected. If you’ve ever lived in Oregon then you know the special bond we all have. :)

Olowalu Plantation House is one of my favorite wedding venues on Maui and it’s perfect for small, intimate weddings. I love the old, antique house and the endless number of backdrops for photos. It’s private and right on the ocean, so basically perfect for a wedding in Hawaii!

One of my favorite moments of the day was when the bride was pooped on by a bird before the ceremony. We were all cracking up and dying laughing. :) I made sure to get a photo. Scroll down to see haha. It’s good luck on your wedding day right? I also loved that they chose a non traditional wedding cake…a donut! Was such a fun idea and they had several varieties from Donut Dynamite to share with their guests. Their ingredients are locally sourced from our beautiful island on Maui.

Huge thanks to Makena Weddings for a lovely evening!!

Maui Destination Wedding at Olowalu Plantation House | Lahaina, Hawaii

Maui Destination Wedding at Olowalu Plantation House

Robyn and Colin got hitched oceanside at Olowalu Plantation House on Maui's west side.  Olowalu has sooo many lovely backdrops.  It's a photographer's dream.  Robyn and Colin made my job easy too.  They were both relaxed and really had fun on their wedding day.  I think it's really important to enjoy all of the little moments throughout your day and take time to observe the beauty surrounding you.  These two did just that. 

Thank you so much for choosing me to be your Maui Wedding Photographer!  It truly was an honor meeting you both and being a part of your special day. :)  

Also, a big shout out to all of the amazing vendors that made this wedding so beautiful.  It wouldn't be what it is if it wasn't for all of the creative folks I have the opportunity to collaborate with.  Feeling grateful to work with so many talented, creative peeps on Maui.
