The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua Wedding, Part One |Tony and Pamara
Maui is a remote place. It sits in the middle of the vast waters of the Pacific, separated from other continents by thousands of miles of ocean.
It’s beautiful cliffs rise out of the ocean in dramatic, steep lava flows and the coastline stops your breath at every turn.
Which is one reason why Tony and Pamara chose Maui for the destination wedding. It’s the most beautiful place they could ever imagine celebrating.
But long before the wedding ever happened, Pamara spent childhood vacations here at The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua. She remembers running on the beaches with her family, and she treasures the moments she sat on the balcony with her sister – her best friend and now matron of honor.
So Tony and Pamara didn’t picture the dramatic coastlines when they thought about their big day. Instead, they could see the faces of their friends and their families, hugging and laughing. They could feel themselves in each other’s arms at the ceremony, and they could picture their smiles as they celebrated at the reception.
They knew that this magical place called Maui may be the most remote place on the planet, but it holds the most intimate memories.
Tony and Pamara’s destination wedding at The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua in Maui is an oh-so-special celebration for us! Not only did we photograph her sister’s wedding at the Boston Public Library last year, but we got to work with an amazing team to make this day happen! Caleb of East West Production captured everything on film, Nancy and her team at So Happi Together designed and coordinated a breathtaking celebrating, and Teresa Sena Design created magical florals!
We began the day with Pamara and her girls getting ready in the Presidential Suite at The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua, which happened to be the SAME room that her family stayed in when they vacationed here years ago. So sweet!
There’s so much more to come in Part Two of Tony and Pamara’s gorgeous destination wedding at The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua in Maui, including their STUNNNNNING sunset portraits on the beach and all of the glamorous details!
