Imagine meeting the love of your life as you’re out on your daily walk with your dog, just like in the movies, this is how Laura and Roger’s love story began! After spending a blissful first year together they decided to elope along the rocky Makena coastline at the breathtaking Kukahiko Estate. Traveling all the way from Texas, the couple said I Do with only Laura’s parents in attendance. They dreamed of an intimate Maui wedding venue where they would enjoy complete privacy; with all of Maui’s beaches being public and a hotel wedding not their style, they made the absolutely perfect choice in the Kukahiko Estate. Not only were Laura’s parents seated comfortably in the shade during the oceanfront ceremony but the happy couple were also able to enjoy a champagne toast and traditional cake cutting after their ceremony, then enjoyed the gorgeous surroundings for their cocktail hour and the lava rocks for dramatic photos. In addition to all of the amenities that the Kukahiko Estate has to offer, it is also just steps away from a golden, sandy beach, which the couple took advantage of during their romantic, sunset photo session with Karma Hill Photography. We absolutely loved working with this sweet couple and wish them all of the love and happiness in the world! Mahalo Laura and Roger for choosing Makena Weddings as your Maui wedding planner, and for this sweet review that they left for us on Wedding Wire:

Laurie, Cindy and Reverend Al were absolutely wonderful to work with. Our wedding day was everything we had dreamed it would be and more because of the care and planning of Makena Weddings. The communication prior to arriving on the island was great and from the first meeting with Al and Laurie we knew we made the right choice to work with this amazing couple. Laurie and Cindy took care of every detail both before and on our wedding day and Reverend Al officiated the most beautiful ceremony. Thank you Laurie, Cindy and Reverend Al for making our wedding day truly magical! We highly recommend Makena Weddings to anyone getting married in Maui!
