Liana and Tim met the old fashioned way – on Tinder! After dating for 3 years they bought a house together and a year later decided to have a baby, who was welcomed into their family in January of 2019. When baby Cooper was 5-months old they took a family vacation to the Big Island of Hawaii where Tim proposed. The bride shares:

Tim proposed during a trip to the Big Island with the help of our baby on a beautiful grassy slope, right next to the water. The proposal was on a whim apparently. We drove past a Tiffany’s on the way to our hotel on the day we arrived. The next day Tim “went for a jog” which was when he bought the ring and about an hour later he proposed. I was definitely not expecting it!

Needless to say, Hawaii holds a very special place in the couple’s hearts so having a destination wedding on the island of Maui was an easy decision for the couple to make. They envisioned a small, romantic wedding at a venue that would would wow their friends and family, the Olowalu Plantation House definitely checked all the boxes!

The couple’s son had the honor of walking the bride down the aisle which was absolutely precious! After their beautiful ceremony guests enjoyed the warm Hawaiian breeze, along with delicious cocktails and appetizers while the bride and groom were off enjoying a romantic photo shoot around the stunning property, followed by dinner and dancing under the stars.

It was truly an amazing day and we were so honored to be a part of it! Make sure you scroll down to the end of this post to see the sweet Mother / Son dance between the bride and her little boy!
