Did you catch our Montenegro elopement + the French St. Barth’s wedding we had up this week? Obviously our love of coastal weddings never fades around here. The trick is finding a venue you can adorn in way that plays up the gorgeous natural locale, like the team at Couture Events did with The Steeple House at Kapalua in Maui. Rich in history and beyond charming, this venue was the perfect spot for their coastal fall vignette as captured by Dmitri + Sandra Photography:
Here’s a little more info on the venue… The chapel was originally built in the 1950s during the plantation era when Kapalua was thriving with pineapple fields. The Kapalua Resort was actually built around the church. Towering palms and Monkeypod trees frame this classically restored venue. The quaint exterior and specious lawn provide a perfect backdrop for non-traditional ceremonies while the updated interior, lovingly furnished with antique touches, compliments classic church services.
Love the mix of light and dark in this autumnal color palette, don’t you?
Such a unique spot for an intimate ceremony.
Erica of Couture Events says, We wanted to capture the history of this venue by integrating vintage furniture pieces like the midnight blue couch, vintage gold rimmed stemware, and a bespoke wedding dress by LeRu Atelier, while still keeping it on trend with unexpected elements like the sprawling hop ceremony wall with hand loomed cotton rugs as the base, and on the table top bold florals and rich textures with velvet napkins from La Tavola.
Um, totally into these red heels for fall. And did we mention they come in seven shades? But we’re partial to this hue right here!
The venue is also set against Makaluapuna Point, and of course the breathtaking Pacific Ocean…
