Maui Wedding Photographer, Olowalu Plantation House

Aug 28, 2015 | Weddings

This lovely couple’s dream came true for their destination wedding at Olowalu Plantation House on Maui.

Prior to the wedding, Joceyln shared their story about how they became a couple: “We met during our last year of undergraduate study at the University of Calgary, through a mutual friend. Soon after our relationship started, Anthony was accepted into Optometry School at the University of Waterloo. After four long years of phone/skype conversations and short trips to see each other, we couldn’t be happier to finally be enjoying our lives together in Calgary!”

She also shared with me their engagement story: “We decided to head up to Emerald Lake to spend the night. The drive up was windy and snowy and I began to worry our short trip would be ruined. After checking into Emerald Lake Lodge, we decided to hike around the lake despite the wet snowy weather. We opted not to rent snowshoes for the hike, thinking the trail was not going to be that bad (We were very wrong!!) The snow was very deep and we were in constant fear of our feet going through the snow. After 4 hours of hiking, the weather had cleared up and we finally made it around the lake alive!! We had dinner at the lodge restaurant and went back to our room tired from our hike. When I came out from a shower, Anthony had started a nice fire in the fireplace and had secretly hidden the ring box on the bed for me to find. He expected me to find the box but I wasn’t expecting a proposal, so I wasn’t looking for anything out of the ordinary. I didn’t even notice that he was nervously watching me, but then he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I immediately started crying and threw my arms around him and of course I said Yes!”

Their wedding day turned out beautifully with the soft color palette of pastels – baby pink, soft peach, blush, and pale mint. As always, Dellables did a phenomenal job on the floral design!

We really lucked out with one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever witnessed. Before the sun set, the sky and ocean shimmered soft pink and blue pastel tones which perfectly complimented the look of their wedding day! As the sun began to set, and afterward, the sky lit up into a vibrant magenta followed by deepening blue twilight tones. The colors took my breath away.  The mixture of this couple’s love and affection for each other and the outstanding beauty of the day made for truely captivating images; I was quite inspired!  Thank you, Joceyln and Anthony, for having me as your wedding photographer! Thank you, Ajja DeShayne, for second shooting.
