grand wailea wedding :: lauren and todd

April 12, 2012

Her favorite movie Gone With The Wind, his favorite movie Casablanca.

One word comes to mind … Classic.

Lauren and Todd’s family and friends gathered in the gardens of the Grand Wailea Resort and Spa to take part in one of the cutest weddings ever. Lauren and Todd’s affection was nearly contagious – It was such a pleasure to be around these two as they celebrated their love in Paradise! Thanks for sharing your day with us you two!

Todd really relaxed and enjoyed the solitude before all the craziness of the days events. I thought it was quite and honor he invited me in to snap a few frames –  Suck em’ up buddy!  Cheers  -D

Todd looked slick rockin the Calvin Klein suit!

“The Return to Classic” –  Most of our brides lately are keeping it classic with things like pearls and feathers etc… Love it!

Todds family in the first one, and his Grandmother in the second photo looking down on him just before the first look.

Todd’s mother coulndt help crying as the anticipation of the first look was building.

One of my very favorite first look photos of all time.

Todd’s Grandma sheds a tear as Todd and Lauren have their first kiss as husband and wife …

Imeddiately after the ceremony is one of my favorite times for photographs. Everyone is just bursting with happiness! – always good for pictures 🙂 – D

Yep double perspective, and yep, we did plan it that way 🙂  Sandras image above, mine below – D

Lauren’s mother watched proudly as Lauren and Todd shared their first dance. We love to capture these special relationships at weddings!

Seriously, I cant think of a better church setting. The Grand Wailea chapel is an incredible spot to exchange vows.

Big mahalo to all the talented Maui wedding vendors who helped make this Destination Maui wedding a success.
