When Kyle and Michaela visited the Makena Beach & Golf Resort a year ago, they knew right away this would be their wedding spot. They spent the next year planning their beautiful Maui wedding. There were so many helping hands in this wedding and sweet little touches to the details. The bouquet had buttons from her mom’s wedding dress, and Kyle’s talented aunt made Michaela’s exquisite sash. As soon as Micheala got into her dress, her mom started crying, which started a cascade of others in the room tearing up. Kyle had sent her a hand-written note with a beautiful heart bracelet the morning of the wedding.
The love and enthusiasm that surrounded this wedding was such a pleasure to document. I knew this was going to be a fun group as soon as I walked into the room and the groomsmen were engaged in some friendly ribbing with Kyle. Kyle was glued to his phone, watching a YouTube video on how to tie a tie. Not just any knot, he wanted to tie a double knot for this special day, and look his best for Michaela.
Michaela is one of those girls whom you feel like you’ve known for years. She was dancing in the hotel room, hugging everyone in the room who was helping her get ready, and telling everyone how thankful she was for them to be with her.
With their hands held tight, these two said their vows at the Makena Vista site at Makena Beach and Golf Resort. There was a huge outpouring of love and excitement levels were super high on their picture-perfect wedding day! And honestly, one could not ask for a more breathtaking sunset, everyone should be so lucky to have a sunset like this on their wedding day!
Congratulations Michaela & Kyle!
