For those of us who believe that a bride should never have to choose between intimate European elegance and vibrant tropical paradise, there exists The Villa at Calasa Olive Farm. This Tuscan-inspired villa in earthy shades of terracotta and tawny yellow rests upon a 20-acre olive farm in the Upcountry mist of Kula, Maui.
This is where Julie and David exchanged their vows in front of a close group of their dearest friends and family.
We are swooning at the simple elegance of Julie's flowing silk gown. It softly drapes her figure, followed by an effortless train and long sweeping veil. The look is complemented flawlessly by Swarovski crystal-embellished ivory silk heels, diamond stud earrings, and a classic jeweled hairpiece.
An incredible bi-coastal view of the island can be seen from The Villa vista point.
Adam of Maui's boutique photography service Love and Water has an incredible eye for capturing portraits that utilize natural light and nature. Shortly after exchanging nuptials, the newlyweds wandered through the estate in privacy, surrounded by silvery olive branches as the setting sun streamed through the leaves.
