After Sean proposed to Claire in Maui on during a vacation with her family, they knew that they wanted to return to this magical island to say I Do surrounded by tropical romance and an intimate group of family and friends. They spent a year between their engagement and their wedding planning their Maui dream wedding and we absolutely loved every minute of the planning process with this sweet couple. One of our favorite ways of getting to know our couples is asking how they met and we are always wowed at how some pairings are definitely meant to be. The bride shares:

After I graduated from the University of Vermont and Sean graduated from Virginia Tech, we both moved to Seattle, Washington in May of 2015. We both swiped right on tinder (haha) within the first month of living in a new city. We had an instant connection, fell in love within a few months, and moved in with each other after that.

Claire and Sean were excited for their guests to be wowed by the amazing views surrounding the Olowalu Plantation House and aside from that, were just as excited to be surrounded by everyone that they love. They wrote their own vows and promised forever under a gorgeous driftwood wedding arch dripping in tropical florals in shades of coral, pink and greenery.¬†The bride stunned in her fabulous Katie May Lanai Sequin gown and we loved how the groom incorporated a floral designed tie that fit in with the rest of the tropical romance of the day. We think you’ll agree that all of their wishes definitely came true as you scroll through these beautiful images courtesy of Naomi Levit Photography.
