The wedding of Phil and Katie was all that a Hawaiian destination wedding should be. Tropical island botanicals were everywhere- decorating Katie's hair, draping around the neck of both the bride and groom in braided leis, and surrounding the entire grounds of Sugar Beach Estate. The couple exchanged vows in front of the vast Pacific amid 60 of their beloved friends and family members. The entire day was captured through the artistic lens of Maui wedding photographer Wendy Laurel. Her unique approach to film photography fully embraces the vibrant nature of the Hawaiian islands, resulting in colorful double exposures, soft sunlit details, and candid portraits. 

Katie had a wonderfully easygoing island aesthetic about her. A flattering Juri by Enzoani gown was tailored flawlessly to the bride's form. An open back and beautiful sheer lace made for the perfect Hawaii wedding dress, keeping Katie cool in temperature the entire day. Her look was completed by Meili Autumn Beauty with a loose Bohemian up-do composed of delicate twists and adorned by soft pink orchids.
