An elopement in Maui with a volcano backdrop

Max and Mel moved Maui to forge a new beginning for themselves and then met through a paddling club. Between karaoke after-parties and Maui adventures, loved blossomed. They decided to have a small elopement in Maui with the East Maui volcano, Haleakalā, as their backdrop. If you think this meant amazing photos, you'll totally right. Think wide open vistas, dramatic cliffs, and moody clouds.

Feel the ocean breeze at a Chinese-inspired wedding in a Hawaiian jungle

Festooned with leis, Max and Tina got married on an honest-to-goodness Hawaiian mountaintop last summer. Pahana Estate is tucked away in the small village of Huelo on Maui, complete with bamboo forests and sweeping ocean panorama. Cozy, right? The couple's Chinese heritage is evident everywhere, from the table decor, to the cutely tiny wedding cake (adorned with mini bride and groom!), to their stunning reception outfits. Check it out: we got a closeup of the embellishments on Tina's bright red top and skirt — I am really digging the contrast between her elaborate look (the shoes, y'all, THE SHOES) and Max's stark black jacket.

But what I didn't expect was a hot tip on where you can find quirky wedding shoes like these the ones.
