What creative or personal aspects did you include in your wedding?
We decided to forego the typical colors expected from Western-style weddings and chose a pink dress matched with a gray patterned suit.
What is the most memorable moment of your day?
Climbing on the volcanic cliffs together for our photos.
What was the biggest thing you did to save money?
Choosing to elope!
What was your biggest splurge?
The crystal headband was definitely pricey but so worth it for pulling the bride’s entire outfit together. We also reserved a very special celebratory dinner at sunset at one of the best restaurants in Maui.
What were your favorite details?
Finding the perfect pocket square to match the bride’s dress.
What’s the best advice you have for planning your wedding now that you’re on the other side?
Make choices based on the couple’s wishes rather than the expectations or demands of others.
