Leslie and Sam were the absolute sweetest couple. Completely in love and so connected with each other, it was such a joy to witness the joining of their lives together as husband and wife at the Kukahiko Estate. Their celebration was decidedly tropical decorated in super fun and vibrant shades of yellow, pinks and Pantone Color of the Year, Living Coral. As the gorgeous bride put on her final touches inside the bridal suite at the Kukahiko Estate, the groom waited patiently for their sweet first look shot. A first look is something that many of our couples enjoy so much, it offers a quiet moment for just the two of you before the festivities of the day begin. It also helps to calm any nerves or anxiousness that you might feel leading up to the ceremony. As soon as our couples see each other during that private moment, we can see the nervousness disappear and a beautiful calmness set in, it is a truly magical moment!

The couple exchanged vows at the incredible oceanfront lawn at the Kukahiko Estate under a gorgeously decorated tropical wedding arch, dripping in colorful tropical flowers. After the ceremony, the tropical theme continued with brightly colored tropical cocktails provided by Aloha Bars Maui, and delicious island style appetizers were hand passed by Cafe O’Lei Restaurants as the bride and groom slipped away for romantic photos together as husband and wife.

As the couple rejoined their guests, an oceanfront dinner set on rustic farm tables and Living Coral decor awaited. It was a truly incredible celebration and we couldn’t be happier for this beautiful couple!
