Maria Lanakila Church Maui

It was a beautiful rainy day, I call it an "Indian Summer." Not your typical day for a wedding in Hawaii but legend says rain is a blessing and good luck... Personally I really enjoyed photographing it. We got lots of rainbows due to rain, at times very challenging to shoot but Richard and Michelle had a great energy and lots of friends and family to share it with. They did not mind getting wet and for the most part I was the one having to hide from the rain so my lenses would stay dry.
The ceremony took place at Maria Lanakila Church in Lahaina then moved to Kaanapali Beach Hotel for the reception. There we had a beautiful setup under a tent, the theme was lime and yellow orchids a perfect contrast with the blue ocean.
From the walk on the beach to their first dance unforgettable moments revealed themselves.

Here is a slideshow..

I had a great time.
Congratulations Richard and Michelle!
