What was your first memory? Does it happen to have a printed image to go with it? Do you have a vague memory because an image was printed? I know mine. I was probably about 4 years old, wearing my jammies, holding my stuffed bunny and sitting on the front steps next to a pumpkin. It just so happens, there’s a picture of it. I do remember it, but I don’t know if I would have if there wasn’t an image of it. That image is totally yellow and printed with rounded corners straight from the early ’80s and I cherish it!
Images are important and trigger memories that are so obvious when you see them, but are so hard to remember when it’s not right there in front of you. When you think about what you will remember from your wedding, will you remember all the fun details? The way you looked at each other right after the ceremony? How your mom looked at you during your vows, and on and on.
Now, do you open your wedding images on your computer and look at them casually with your loved ones? I sure didn’t!  It’s finally time to order your wedding album!!!

Every year my husband and I bring out our album on our anniversary and relive the fabulous day. Our kids are so interested in all the details and love seeing pictures of their family before they were born. Yes, wedding albums are important! It’s the last step in completing your wedding journey. Let’s create it together so your most special day will have a physical representation in the real world, not just on a computer screen. Something that can be passed down with the generations.Maui Wedding AlbumA lot of couples nowadays are looking into printing albums on their own through more every day printing companies. You invested a lot of time, love and energy into your wedding. The same love  and quality should be represented in your wedding album. The album printing company I use has 100+ year archival printing that guarantees quality, calibrated prints and top of the line materials that won’t fall apart over time.

How the Design and Order Process Works:
If I’ve had the pleasure of photographing your wedding (THANK YOU SO MUCH!! Miss you guys!) send me an email, call or DM. Tell me what size you’d like (I recommend 10×10) and I’ll predesign a select set of images from your day. Once it’s ready we can schedule a video call for your design consult. You can make any changes live while we go over your album design together online. It usually takes about an hour. You have the option to take out individual photos, add photos, swap layouts, etc. Cover options include full page image, cameo cover, or your names engraved on linen or leather. There are a lot of font options as well. We’ll make sure you love the final design before it gets sent off to print. So easy!!

Kylene, Ryan and their sweet puppy Spaghetti Von Pickles, make a fabulous little family. Katherine Day from Island Girl Pin Ups made sure Kylene looked fabulous. The floral genius Angela DeCoite from Rivermoon Botanicals decorated our styled shoot with her wondrous blossoms. Tamara Catz designed the beautiful breezy gowns. The super stylish boutique Lele by Adenlina Mare handmade the jewelry and the bohemian stools. Our cute couple owns the vintage 1975 VW bus. It has been on Maui it’s whole life and provides Kylene and Ryan a sweet escape to the beach.

Marika and Joey got married on beautiful Maui with all their friends and family enjoying the celebration. Sugar Beach Villa on Maui’s south shore was the gorgeous location for the festivities. Palm trees, beach breezes and small waves set the stage for their special day.

Marika readied in the bridal suite with her best friends dressed in tropical palm leaf dresses, while drinking Veuve. The gentlemen wore Tommy Bahama. It fit the weather perfectly.

“Joey and I met through mutual friends. My best friend from college went to high school with him in San Francisco. After college I moved to San Francisco and lived with my 2 best friends and he moved to San Francisco with 3 of his good guy friends. Our houses basically spent every weekend together, shared dinners and birthdays and eventually one thing lead to another! ”

 

“I work for a public relations firm representing technology companies (Amazon, Facebook, Intuit). Joey has 10 years of hospitality experience previously working for the Ritz-Carlton, and more recently a boutique hotel in Malibu. Just recently Joey has switched career paths a bit and is now the Estate Manager for a family here in the Bay Area.”

 

 

Marika wore a flower crown and the ceremony arch was adorned with tropical flowers, tuberose and proteas that smelled divine. My other career goal was to be a wedding florist! It was when I was 10, but it actually is a very attractive option to me still!

The ceremony was sweet, fun and heartfelt. Guests were welcomed to the party with hors d oeuvres and cocktails to enjoy the sunset.

The best men were a blast to listen to as they took turns telling fun stories of Marika and Joey. Their friends sang them a gorgeous song as a surprise after the toasts. A dessert table delighted the guests along with traditional Hawaiian style ice cream. They danced the night away and enjoyed the bright starry night. It was a beautiful night to remember.

salerno0002Tabitha and William celebrated their 5 year anniversary Maui style. On a windy day with big swell we explored Baldwin Beach park on Maui. The sea spray lit the background in a hazy, salty sort of way. Fall is beautiful here on Maui. Lots of rainbows, sprinkles and an excited ocean. Tabitha and William, happy 5th! salerno0004salerno0003Natalie Brown Photographysalerno0005salerno0006salerno0007salerno0008salerno0009salerno0010salerno0011salerno0012salerno0013salerno0014salerno0015salerno0016salerno0017salerno0018

“We decided on a destination wedding because we both enjoy to travel so much and wanted to make our wedding an adventure. We really had no specifics in mind, I bought all the girls grey dresses because they would go with whatever flowers we found when we got to Maui. We wanted to make our wedding planning as stress free as possible, and we both aren’t big planners. Luckily Gannons did almost all the work for us and made it look absolutely gorgeous! With the view we had we really did not need a lot of decoration and the wedding was very US! It was simple, not over done, very laid back and full of love! A destination wedding was the perfect setting for us.”2016-07-28_00082016-07-28_00092016-07-28_0010Kyla’s best friend/bridesmaid announced their pregnancy at the wedding, and Zach’s groomsman proposed to his girlfriend the day after.
