With the help of their Hawaii-based planner, Mackenzie and Tim put together an elegant, French vineyard-inspired celebration with a color palette of white, cream, peach and earthy metallics. The couple chose Maui because of it's convenient distance between their two homes: Australia and the United States.

Lush hanging vines, orchids and chandeliers mixed with white linens and gold chiavari chairs made for a sophisticated reception setting.
Attendants paired soft peach strapless dresses from Donna Morgan with sashes from BHLDN and subtle metallic peep-toe heels.
Fresh green and white garlands distinguished the bride and groom's chairs from the rest of the head table.
Bridesmaids wore matching metallic peep-toe pumps with their peach silk chiffon dresses.
As guests transitioned to cocktail hour, they were greeted with an hors d'oeuvres menu written in calligraphy.
A personal friend of the bride and groom officiated the ceremony.
Mackenzie wore a deep V-neck organza gown with an oversized bow and ostrich feather detailing.
In case of rain, Mackenzie's attendants had paper umbrellas to stay dry.
Mackenzie and Tim sent their guests a retro dashboard hula girl along with vintage Maui, HI postcards for their save-the-dates.
The invitation suite's passport theme was fitting due to the bride and groom's different nationalities.
Mackenzie chose romantic flowers that matched her destination setting, including cymbidium orchids and hydrangeas.
Since their venue was full of interesting natural decor, Mackenzie and Tim only added a few, simple elements, like this rustic-looking urn filled with hydrangeas and cymbinium orchids.
Since the ceremony and reception took place at Haiku Mill (an old sugar mill in Haiku, HI), the couple was surrounded with lush island greenery, waterfalls and their own elegant touches during their marriage vows.
Mackenzie and Tim selected a dense chocolate cake with rustic white frosting topped with fresh flowers.
Mackenzie had ceramic olive oil dipping bowls made in Italy to give as favors because of their sentimental meaning to her family.
The groom wore a light pink orchid wrapped in white ribbon for a boutonniere.
The bride and the bridesmaids wore their hair down and parted to the side for the ceremony and reception.
A sophisticated menu card tied up with a sprig of rosemary sat atop gold chargers for a simple, yet elegant place setting.
The escort cards were written by a local Hawaiian woman in dark brown ink and placed in slotted wine corks to keep in theme with the French vineyard style of the wedding.
Guests received this Welcome to Maui! bag once they flew in for the celebration.
The bride wore light blue Prada slingbacks with a peep-toe.
Guests enjoyed a rustic, woodland lounge area during the reception.
White hydrangeas in rectangular glass boxes made for a refined low centerpiece, while table names were held up with golden rods and placed in a group of wine corks.
Mackenzie's custom made round-cut diamond wedding ring was placed on top of a champagne cork to expand on her French winery theme.
