Happy Wedding Anniversary Carelle Jade & Nelson! – Maui, Hawaii Destination Wedding

Happy Anniversary to one of my most favorite couple! We miss everything about your Hawaii wedding!

Bride and Groom: Carelle Jade and Nelson. I was introduced to Carelle Jade by one of our previous client. When we met with  Carelle Jade and Nelson, and her mother Eleanor, we all immediately clicked. We were so excited about their ideas, most especially their plan on fulfilling their dream wedding in Maui, Hawaii.

Ceremony and Reception: White Orchid Wedding Beach House, Makena, Maui, Hawaii. Nothing can beat this place for wedding location. The ceremony and reception are held next to the beach and the magnificent view of the sunset is just amazing! The black volcanic rocks blocking the giant waves near the beach house gives you a spectacular viewing experience of the beach in Maui. And of course, It’s a perfect background for any wedding shoot.


Event Planner: White Orchid Weddings. The wedding coordinators that day, Jacqueline Uilani Ishikawa and Linda Santos, were one of the best I’ve ever seen. They are so accommodating and very good in what they do. They turned the beach house into a very romantic and elegant-looking wedding venue. Kudo to you guys for making Carelle Jade and Nelson’s wedding the best!


Spa: Trudy’s Fountain of Youth. The girls went for an amazing massage and spa, the day before the wedding. Trudy’s staff are pretty amazing and very professional!

Video: Derek of Lavon Films. I introduced Derek to the bride and groom during our engagement shoot in NYC, and they got to like him. Derek is very talented videographer with a cinematography style. He also have the “photojournalistic” style that I have that’s why I love

CHECK OUT THE PHOTOS from the day…more to come in a few weeks. You will find them at www.pictage.com

To welcome their guests, Carelle Jade and Nelson, treated everyone to a Luau dinner in the Lahaina area in Maui, Hawaii. Here’s a little something about Luau:

luau (in Hawaiianlu‘au) is a Hawaiian feast. It may feature food, such as poikalua pigpokelomi salmonopihihaupia, and beer; and entertainment, such as Hawaiian music and hula.

Before the Luau started, the k?lua pig, was dug up from the Imu (an underground oven). This way of cooking dates back from the ancient Hawaiians:

Traditionally, extremely hot volcanic (lava) rocks were placed in a hole approximately 6′ by 4′ by 3′ and the hole was lined with vegetation such as banana leaves. A salted pig was placed inside and covered with more banana leaves to preserve theheat and flavor. Then, it was covered with burlap and soil, and left to steam all day. Once removed from the imu, the pig was ready to be served.

And ofcourse, the highlight of the Luau – the gorgeous hula dancers…LOL
