Maui Wedding of Love and Transformation

Wedding of Yanet and Steve at Sugar Beach Events

On This Day We Two Shall Wed…
On August 11, 2014 we celebrated the marriage of Yanet and Steve

Mother Nature couldn’t stand in the way of this wedding. Yanet and Steve were determined to get married, come rain, shine, or hurricane. Two storm systems, Iselle and Julio, (which were at first hurricanes then lowered to tropical storms), were aimed to impact Hawaii, but fortunately our venue hardly saw any rain. Looking at the gorgeous pictures from PhotoHawaii, Inc., no one would ever guess what had been in the forecast!

This wedding united not only the bride and groom, but family as well. Reverend Alapaki did a wonderful job of incorporating Yanet’s and Steve’s sons into the ceremony. Bride Yanet says, “He truly made us feel like we all became one! I still get teary eyed!”

Each guest received an individually wrapped box which delicately contained a butterfly. When Steve and Yanet were pronounced husband and wife, they kissed and everyone released their butterflies. It was a wonder to see the butterflies flutter gently around Yanet and Steve and the guests during this special moment. Butterflies symbolize life’s beautiful enfolding, and meeting transformations with lightness and joy. The butterflies continued to grace us with their presence throughout the night.

Instead of the traditional guestbook, Yanet and Steve opted for something entirely unique and totally Maui. Wedding guests signed a personalized 4-foot surfboard. It was a fun way for the guests to leave a special message for the bride and groom, and it will be a fabulous momento from their special day.

For favors, guests received bride and groom wine stoppers. Another very special detail and something useful for guests to use and remember Yanet and Steve’s special wedding day in Maui.
