Maui is a special place to Suzanne + Scooter, so saying “I do!” at the Hana-Maui Resort was kind of a no-brainer.  Scooter’s parents were actually married there, so it seemed fitting to continue the tradition!  With the help of Taryn Stark Wyant Events, they planned an amazing destination wedding on Maui and their wedding weekend was absolutely incredible.

Historic rainfall that closed the iconic Road to Hana threatened their weekend of celebration, but Suzanne + Scooter handled the weather stress like true champions.  Although the days leading up to their big day weren’t picture perfect, their family + friends rallied around them and made sure the party didn’t stop.  The rain stopped on the morning of their wedding day and they were able to say “I do!” on the cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, just as they envisioned.

Suzanne wore a gorgeous textured gown with floral appliques by Lela Rose and Scooter was the definition of dapper in his white dinner jacket tuxedo.  They chose to forego a traditional wedding party and simply spent the day with their siblings and cousin by their side.  After the traditional Hawaiian ceremony, guests were escorted up the hill to the Guest House – a beautiful pineapple plantation-style home across the street from the resort.  Under a beautiful sail cloth tent, Teresa Sena and her team created the most beautiful + lush floral wonderland filled with the brightest blooms I’ve ever seen.  The tablescapes featured patterned linens, colorful plates, print cloth napkins, and vibrant glassware by Estelle Colored Glass.  Personalized menus doubled as escort cards and pendant lights were hung from the ceiling – as well as a giant floral installation over the dance floor.

This day couldn’t have been more up my alley.  As a lover of color, patterns, over-the-top florals, and texture… this was literally MY dream wedding!!  Here are some of my favorites from Suzanne + Scooter’s gorgeous Maui wedding at the Hana-Maui Resort…
