“Love is a partnership of two unique people who bring out the very best in each other, and who know that even though they are wonderful as individuals, they are even better together.” -Barbara Cage
We had the opportunity to photograph a very intimate, meaningful and unique wedding. Charles and Chris surrounded themselves with their closest group of friends and family on their special day. When you decide to move to Maui you realize that in most cases you are separating yourself from many of your loved ones with a giant ocean. Many make the journey annually to visit and enjoy the island life and some will only visit once and that is it. Family in Hawaii is called Ohana, and one thing that you develop here is an extended Ohana. People you just meet become apart of your family and you slowly start to acquire this close network of people who start to spend every holiday and every life milestone together. These people are not related to us by blood but by love.
The images captured at Charles and Chris’s Wedding will highlight the extended Ohana that Charles and Chris have created together as well as both of their very loving families. So many weddings happen here on Maui everyday, but the energy and resilience of this couple lit up the entire island of Maui. They deserve to be a couple united together by marriage, and we know that they will enjoy every minute of it. Congratulations to you two once again, you are role models for so many and you will always be apart of our Ohana. We wish you all the best as you move onto a new chapter of your life united together as a team. Your wedding will always be a special day in our lives.
