Though Khanh and Jon’s original wedding plan was a large destination wedding celebration in Maui surrounded by family and friends, the Covid-19 pandemic and travel restrictions, unfortunately, made that impossible. Instead, this gorgeous couple embraced the new normal and enjoyed a romantic Micro Wedding Elopement in Maui at the breathtaking Kukahiko Estate and it turned out to be everything that they dreamed of and more. Khanh and Jon were married in a modern, romantic elopement in Maui, just steps from crashing waves and surrounded by love, on the same wedding date that they had originally chosen.

In order to create a Micro version of their original wedding plans, we simplified what they had originally planned on and focused on creating a gorgeous, meaningful and sumptuous affair, just on a smaller scale. Complete with stunning views of the ocean and rocky Makena coastline, the Kukahiko Estate allowed them the privacy and ease of having their romantic elopement and reception dinner at the same location.

Khanh looked absolutely incredible in her Sarah Seven gown which was romantic, modern and elegant. Jon looked amazing in his classic navy suit, we loved the fact that neither sacrificed style just because they decided on a small elopement.

Their wedding arch was dripping in breathtaking white orchids, roses and monstera leaves which perfectly complimented the bride’s cascading bouquet. After their romantic vows and stunning portraits around the Kukahiko Estate property, the couple dined under a lavish canopy draped in white chiffon with a romantically lit crystal chandelier hanging overhead.

This is truly what love is all about, compromising and realizing that all you need is each other and everything else will turn out exactly as it is supposed to.

Congratulations to the newlyweds!! It was truly an honor and a pleasure, we wish you a lifetime of days as perfect as this one was, from all of us at Makena Weddings! Thank you for choosing us as your Maui Wedding Planner!
