A Destination Wedding on Maui

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.

You can’t get much more perfect than that.

  1. Not married yet – but as I get older, a destination wedding gets more and more appealing! Perhaps that is just the travel addict in me talking!!!

    • No, it’s that it’s the best wedding idea ever!

    • Mahalo, Wendy. That’s very sweet of you to say. We do love Maui and no matter where we travel to, Maui will always hold a special place in our hearts.
