A Destination Wedding on Maui
A year from yesterday, we had a destination wedding in the little town of Paia on the beautiful island of Maui. It may sound cliche, but it was the most perfect day or our lives. Not even the huge storm we awoke to brought on by Hurricane Daniel taking place in Costa Rica could put a damper on our Maui destination wedding.
A Perfect Day
After raining all night and morning, as we were about to go outside for our ceremony on the beach at Mama’s Fish House, the rain stopped. The clouds parted, the sun came out and a huge rainbow stretched across the sky. Everything happened exactly as it was supposed to. The day couldn’t have ended up being more beautiful.
Not everything was able to happen the way it was planned, but it all came together even better than the original plan. We were so happy to finally marry each other. Nothing else mattered that day. We were way too happy and in-love for anything that could have been seen as negative to affect us.
A Wedding is a Party
I read somewhere that a wedding is a party, not a performance. If at the end of the day you are married to the one you love, than everything went perfectly. It really is that simple. The whole day was filled with love and happiness radiating between us. The whole day was perfect.
Wedding Day Advice
I’ll leave you with this little bit of advice for your own wedding day, destination wedding on Maui or not, don’t stress about the what-ifs or things not happening. Your day will be perfect no matter what. It will come together exactly as it’s supposed to. And at the end of the day, you will be married to the person of your dreams. You can’t get much more perfect than that.
If you have any questions on having your own destination wedding on Maui, don’t hesitate to ask. We completely planned our own, without a coordinator, and are happy to help pass on our destination wedding knowledge to others.
