A tropical Maui wedding surrounded by their family is all that Hillary and Mitchell dreamed of when envisioning their perfect wedding here on Maui. Their exact words were that they wanted a marriage more than an elaborate wedding and just having their families there with them, surrounded by love, was their only must have on their wedding day. Their proposal story is just as sweet, thoughtful and romantic, the bride shares:

Mitchell and I went to Paris last year during the winter holiday. We spent the day on a trip to chateaus in the French countryside. When we arrived back into the city we enjoyed a traditional Parisian dinner and then headed to the Eiffel Tower. Mitchell found the perfect spot to set up our camera to take pictures of us with the Tower twinkling in the background. As midnight struck, Mitchell pressed the button on our camera and told me to smile. Little did I know he pressed record and dropped to one knee, pulled out the most beautiful ring and asked me to marry him. It was absolutely magical and I’m so happy he recorded it.

These two were the just the loveliest people and we so enjoyed planning this perfect tropical celebration for them, in shades of pink and greens with touches of pineapple and palm leaves. Color definitely took center stage in this gorgeous affair and we’re so excited to share the amazing images from their day with you, courtesy of Naomi Levit Photography.

When it came to choosing their destination wedding location, they wanted an amazing location with incredible natural beauty. So a tropical wedding on Maui was the obvious choice. As you scroll through their beautiful images below you’ll see that their every wish came true.
