Hayley and David traveled all the way from Vancouver, BC to the warm shores of Maui for their destination wedding at Gannon’s Wailea. Surrounded by warm tradewinds and swaying palm trees, it was the perfect location to start their journey together as husband and wife.

This sweet couple met on Bumble, after Hayley moved into a new neighborhood. She set her match distance within her new neighborhood and luckily Dave was only 5-blocks away. After 2.5 years together, they happily became engaged! The bride shares:

Dave had bought the ring and was debating the perfect way and time to propose and then during a night in, playing a game of crib, it seemed like the best time of all.

The couple chose the island of Maui for their destination wedding because the groom grew up traveling to Maui for family vacations and has a number of great memories on the beautiful island. Hayley had only been to Oahu and Dave promised to show her how much better Maui was. And what a better way to show her than with a destination wedding of her dreams.

The bride and groom dreamed of having an intimate wedding that was elegant with a touch of tropical, and it was so much fun to bring their vision to life. They said I Do on the lower wedding knoll at Gannon’s Wailea, we loved the choice of black bridesmaids dresses paired with white tropical bouquets. It truly brought the touch of elegance that the bride was after.

Their reception was just as beautiful as guests dined on wood farm tables pushed together to form one long table. Stunning floral decor lined the table which included tropical leaves interspersed with white flowers, sliced fruit and flickering candles. Pretty green vintage glassware and custom menu and place cards topped off the look and created the most gorgeous, elegant tropical tablescape. Matias Ezcurra was there to capture it all and we’re so excited for you to scroll through these image to see all of the beauty.
