An intimate destination wedding on the island of Maui was the perfect way for Brandon and Brianna to celebrate their wedding day. Melissa McClure Photography captured this beautiful couple along with the beauty of the island as they partied the night away at Olowalu Plantation House, Maui among family and friends.
With a rustic style and a hint of vintage details, we love this couple’s classic style. Pops of pink florals by Sunya’s Flowers adorned the lace runners on wood farm tables, all while guests enjoyed a gorgeous evening under the twinkle lights and stars. We hope you enjoy the special moments and simple details that made Brandon and Brianna’s day so special, and don’t miss the behind the scenes that this lovely bride has shared with us!
What was the most important to the two of you while planning? Was there anything that you chose to splurge on or skip?
The most important thing to us was incorporating Jesus Christ in our ceremony. He will not only be with us individually throughout our lives, but with us in our marriage as well. He is the epitome of love and will always be the foundation upon which we stand. He needed to be the center of our commitment to one another. As for the aesthetics, wine barrels and farm tables were important to me. They really helped bring in the vintage laid back vibe I was going for.
What were your favorite parts of the day?
Seeing my dad for the first time and my mom helping me get ready. Praying with our guests during the ceremony. Brandon and my first dance. Brandon dancing with his mom and sister. Everyone dancing! Oh my gosh, my dress got thrashed!
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
My mom and Cherise!!! Love them both. Cherise was a fabulous wedding planner and my mom is a saint for being so patient with helping me. Planning a destination wedding can become overwhelming, so it’s important to let certain things go and realize what the wedding is really about. My mom and Cherise made it possible for me to focus on what really matters by taking on all the stress. And a HUGE thank you to both my parents and Brandon’s mom for making this wedding a possibility.
Do you have any advice for couples planning their weddings now?
Relax. It’s not about the wedding. The wedding is wonderful but it’s fleeting. Remember what the day is really about. Sit back and actually take it in. It’s only a moment, but what’s behind the moment is what you should focus on.
It is clear to us that this couple embraced the moments as they celebrated their wedding day, and what an incredible party that ensued as the evening wore on. Congrats Brandon and Brianna on a beautiful start to your marriage!
