North Shore Maui Elopement | Ariel + Stephane

North Shore Maui Elopement

Ariel and Stephane came to Maui from Quebec.  They quickly realized that planning a large wedding had too many moving pieces.  Instead of the big wedding with all that planning, they decided to just focus on themselves and have a simple North Shore Maui elopement.  Maui is the most beautiful place to be married.  I’m sure of it!

I loved this wedding because they chose the North Shore in the evening.  While the North Shore beaches can be windy, it adds so much drama to the photos  Also, the lighting over there is spectacular, especially in the evening time.  For the ceremony, we chose a little spot of beach that had a great view of the West Maui Mountains.  And the surf was rolling in for picture perfect waves.  We really did have a beautiful evening for their elopement.

They had a short ceremony, and then we stayed at Baldwin Beach for our portrait session.  Because the North Shore offers such versatility, we were able to get so many great shots even though this was only a one hour photo shoot.  Beyond the traditional, gorgeous sweetheart shots, we got photobombed by a giant sea turtle!

In the excitement of the day, Ariel and Stephane actually forgot their wedding rings back at the hotel!  With Pa’ia traffic, there was no way they could go back and get the rings on time  Thankfully, it just so happened I had some extra rings on me.  So Ariel got my little wave ring, and Stephane got one of my simple hammered silver bands.  And that’s what they used to exchange during their wedding vows!  I’m so glad I had extras on hand!

 

Ariel and Stephane:  Congratulations on your North Shore Maui elopement  Thank you for choosing Angela Nelson Photography to capture your big day!  Cheers!
