During Minette and Peter's courtship, the couple often vacationed on the island of Maui, Hawaii, a place that is dear to them both. When it came time to wed, there was no question that they would return to the tropics. The bride says, "Our vision for the day was to have a care-free, enjoyable time while celebrating our families becoming one." The location of choice? Merriman's Kapalua Maui--the award-winning oceanfront restaurant which offers indoor-outdoor seating, spectacular sunset views, a modern open-air bar, and oceanfront lounge and fire pit.

Minette says, "Our wedding style was romantic. We wanted tons of candles and lush flowers in blush, ivory and white." They enlisted the expertise of the wedding coordinating team at Maui's Angels Destination Weddings and Events to realize their vision. An opulent table was set with glamorous blush sequin linens, gold place settings and lush blush and ivory centerpieces. Hanging chandeliers were adorned in blush and ivory blooms for an utterly romantic look. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous images with us, Joanna Tano!

Minette gives us the scoop on selecting her fitted lace and organza Lazaro wedding dress. "As the manager of a bridal salon, I have seen every designer gown out there. Once I saw this Lazaro gown, I knew it was the perfect dress for my special day. I cried when it arrived and still love it dearly!"
