Sometimes, the most magical moments are the most simple and pure. Hawaii is the perfect getaway to disconnect from the rest of the world and truly focus what is important. This is exactly what Claire and Fred dreamed of for their intimate destination elopement. The couple opted for a private beach ceremony right along the Montage Kapalua Bay. Maui-based wedding photographer Wendy Laurel captured the vibrancy of the day on film.
The ceremony began with the bride and groom surrounded by flowers with their toes in the sand. After saying "I do", the couple shared their first dance as man and wife to a sweet ukulele serenade right on the beach. Shortly after, Claire and Fred shared a sweet picnic with their best man and maid of honor!
