A Natural, Tropical Destination Wedding at a Private Residence in Maui, Hawaii

This destination wedding on the island of Maui, Hawaii, stayed loyal to its natural, tropical surroundings. The romantic ceremony of Veronica Rodngues (28 and a senior loan officer) and Anthony Aires (35 and a senior loan officer) took place underneath lush palm trees overlooking Kaanapali Beach, where the classic reception was held close to the sand on a nearby private cabana. From the little details, like the pineapple-lined aisle decorated with sand and flower petals, to the larger ones, such as the Hawaiian menu of kula greens, mango ribs and kalua pork with pineapple fried rice, the tropical theme never left the minds of guests. Dellables floral designer made sure to provide pops of color for the pink palette, and MeewMeew Studios captured the whole affair. In our opinion, the simple dessert spread embodied the natural vibe of the island wedding that day. “We served a strawberry lemonade cake with chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting,” Veronica says. “The cake was simple and had a choppy texture and peachy flowers on top. It was all displayed on a wood bench with the cupcakes in vintage two-tiered baskets with pineapples around it.”
