Destination wedding at Andaz Maui: Erica + Chris
Are you guys just as enamored with the Maui weddings we’ve had on the blog this year as we are? Our own Amanda *just* adjusted to reality after a relaxing stay at Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort, so when we saw these gorgeous photos Chris J Evans captured of Chris + Erica’s ceremony on the Andaz Laule’a Event Lawn (complete with ocean and mountain views) we had to share. Not to mention, they planned a destination wedding weekend from Los Angeles that was full of fun activities like a snorkeling, a cruise, and sunset cocktail party. Take a peek!
Prettiest crystal embellished Giuseppe Zanotti heels.
E + C loved Chris J Evans‘ experience in both weddings + editorial, so they knew he’d capture timeless photos that channeled both styles.
The bridal bouquet was chock-full of white, blush + pink garden roses, hydrangeas, and phalaenopsis orchids wrapped in an ivory ribbon.
These two were all about spending the entire weekend with their 120 guests, but we can totally see why couples might choose this locale for an elopement, too. They have thoughtful, inclusive wedding packages, not to mention an on-site wedding photographer there to document all the special moments.
Erica tells it, The ceremony took place on the Laulea Lawn, and it was a very wide grassy lawn with the ocean as its backdrop that had just the perfect little hill where we knew we’d want to get married in front of all of our family and friends. It was sprinkled with palm trees and hedges which made it intimate yet very grand.
The most memorable moment from our wedding day was standing atop the perfect little hill on the grassy lawn next to the blue ocean, staring into the eyes of my handsome husband as we said our own vows to each other in front of our family and friends.
Cheers, E + C! Engaged Cakies, be sure to check out the Andaz Maui website for more on wedding + elopement packages.
