We started planning Kelsey and Dean’s romantic Maui wedding over 3-years ago, before the pandemic, when they first became engaged. We never would’ve thought that we would wait 3 whole years before bringing their dream wedding to life, but that’s exactly what happened. We were so happy to finally get to meet this sweet couple and their two beautiful children when they were finally able to travel from Canada to Maui for their big day!

The couple chose the beautiful lower lawn at Gannon’s Wailea as their Maui wedding venue. With the most breathtaking views and just across the street from a gorgeous sandy beach, it was the perfect location to host their big day. As the bride walked into the ceremony on the arm of her father, her handsome groom waited patiently beneath a beautiful round arch decorated perfectly with tropical flowers in soft shades of blush, peach and ivory. In an intimate ceremony, surrounded by their closest family and friends, the couple said I Do and finally were able to celebrate as they had dreamed of doing for so long on the warm shores of Maui.

A romantic photoshoot followed on the beach while their family and friends enjoyed a lively cocktail hour at Gannon’s Wailea. As the couple returned back to rejoin the party, they were welcomed with a gorgeously set dinner under the stars, cake cutting with their two boys and dancing in the warm Hawaiian breeze.

It was truly a night to remember and we were so honored to have been a part of it! Congratulations to Kelsey and Dean and thank you for choosing Makena Weddings as your Maui Wedding Planner!
