Laura and Star’s love story dates back to their college days, brought together by a love for a great pair of sneakers! And although their love of shoes brought them together, they found themselves planning to put their toes in the sand for a Maui destination wedding. Their connection to Hawaii stems from Laura’s family who traveled to Wailea growing up. So with found memories, they planned to share an intimate wedding with 30 of the closest people in their lives.
With a smaller number of guests, the couple was really able to focus on creating a beautiful space to celebrate. After a very personal ceremony at Keawala’i Church, guests dined and danced al fresco at The Sugarman Estate. Wild Heart Flowers helped the couple reimagine the traditional floral lei into custom dining spaces, dripping (literally!) with colorful floral leis.
Hawaiian traditions continued, as guests were treated to a hula lesson by authentic Polynesian dancers. Laura and Star truly went above and beyond to welcome their guests with not only the island customs but into the start of their lives together. We were honored to be a part of their beautiful day along with a talented team of vendors. Enjoy their gallery of images captured by Wendy Laurel!
