Recently I had the opportunity to travel to Maui with my girlfriends. Travel to Maui with my girlfriends who are going to a wedding. Travelling to Maui with my girlfriends who are going to a wedding and I get to shoot the wedding. I get to shoot the wedding!? Yes please!! I had planned to go to Maui with my friends Rachelle + Kim, one who was attending a wedding while we were there. It came up in conversation with the bride Jenn that I was coming along with my camera and she was curious if I would be interested in photographing their wedding. Of course I was interested!! We connected online and met for the first time on the beach in Maui a few days before the wedding. So perfect!
Jenn + Mike were married at the Wailea Golf Club. A morning wedding, on a beautiful lookout with ocean all around. It was a gorgeous day and everyone was so excited for these two to finally tie the knot! Jenn + Mike had nearly 80 guests fly in from all over Canada to celebrate with them! Based out of Regina, Jenn + Mike met through work connections nearly 3 years ago. Word is they were compeitiors in the cattle biz. They’re “cattle people” as their friends would say, many of whom are also in the same industry, cows, tractors or farming…you name it. The BEST kind of people! Everyone was so so fun!! Cattle people dont let you play shy, they dont even let you think about it!! After the wedding ceremony we shared a delicious lunch at the resorts famous restaurant Gannons. Famous for being the set for the Jen Aniston movie ‘Just go with it’!
Photos were snapped on the golf course grounds and then at the locals only ’secret beach’. A gorgeous tiny cove tucked away from the hoopla. The wedding party were brave and climbed over the rocks, dodging the waves and ocean spray! Lots of laughs were shared, no one fell in and no one fell down. Thank goodness! We wrapped up photos just after lunch and headed over to the pool where guest had changed into their skivvies and the party continued poolside!
I fell prrretty hard for these guys and their families. Thanks for the great celebration and friendships! Enjoy your photos and the Agribition social!!
