James and Brittany
The Plantation Home, Lahaina
Aug. 2, 2012
“We were being introduced to lots of people on that day,” says Brittany. “Right away we had a connection.”
They dated for about eight and a half years before James got down on one knee. He asked her to marry him right in the middle of the town square, as the clock struck midnight on New Years Eve. They both knew immediately the wedding would be in Maui.
“Our love of the island is one of our biggest connections as a couple,” says Brittany.
They decided on a tropical-inspired wedding at the Plantation Home in Lahaina. There, the whole family could stay and they could do their intimate ceremony and four-table reception in the backyard that was right on the beach. Old Lahaina Luau catered the wedding with Hawaiian food and a lilikoi wedding cake. The couple also hired a fire dancer as a surprise for their guests.
The bride wore a vintage inspired cap sleeve gown with a keyhole back from David’s Bridal, while the groom wore a Tommy Bahama linen shirt with slacks and slippers. The bride cruised down the aisle while everyone listened to Bruddah Iz playing on uke. Later Barefoot Minded played.
“We love Old Lahaina Luau so we had them cater the reception,” says Brittany. “They had really great prices and even for the smallest buffet the amount of food was ridiculous. More options than could fit on my plate. I heard people say it was the best food they had at a wedding.”
