A dream wedding in beautiful Maui, Hawaii at none other than the island’s best and most highly acclaimed hotel, The Grand Wailea. Not only a dream wedding for our couple but also a dream destination assignment for us. LA locals Gles and Jeff had a true Hawaiian ceremony at the Kukahiko Estate in Makena with a real Kahuna Pule (Hawaiian Minister) singing his mele (chant) and blowing his Hawaiian horn conch shell. An outdoor Luau reception followed at the Grand Wailea complete with hula and fire dancers. And to top it off… all these were happening with picture perfect views of Maui’s beaches as backdrops. One word describes it all… EPIC.
Stills was by international award-winning photographer Lito Sy and his super-talented sidekick from Apple & Cheese Photography, Mark Cano. A GREAT BIG thanks to Randy Panado of Colour Craft Media for shooting with us and sharing his amazing Steadicam tricks and to Cory Bruening for his awesome “time lapse” work of Makena’s beaches.
