nicole and kevin :: the grand wailea resort and spa

September 18, 2011

Nicole and Kevin totally reminded us of a classic Hollywood couple. Super cute, chic, and in love!

We were so intrigued by their careers with DreamWorks and New Line Cinema… as “film making” is one of our dreams!

Nicole was stunning in her Melissa Sweet gown. Something about her classic style that brought to mind the genre of of Audrey Hepburn, Maylyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor. I didn’t have to give her any direction, she was a camera natural! so graceful, so flirty!

Kevin got ready with his father who was also his best man – isn’t that so special? When they walked out together, Kevin was looking like James McAvoy – such a baller!

Their ceremony was held at the charming seaside Chapel at The Grand Wailea Resort and Spa. Its captivating Hawaiian Themed stained-glass windows, and the beautiful Koi pond that surrounds it, make this location truly unique. They had a Unity Sand Ceremony, a meaningful wedding tradition which ended with the release of thirty butterflies as a symbol of joy! One of whom decided to make a little nest of Nicole’s bouquet!

Big thanks to all the maui wedding professionals who helped make this event a fabulous one!
