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.
Getting to the location required a long 10-mile hike, but it was worth it. Everyone met at Paliku Cabin with a cake, a disco ball, flowers for the bouquet and boutonniere, and various decorations for the reception after.
They found a beautiful field for the ceremony and said their vows amidst the clouds rolling down into the field. then it was all champagne, whisky, cake, and cheers under the stars.
