Jacqui and Dave come from worlds apart - her from California, and him from Australia. When planning their big day, they decided on a happy medium, the gorgeous island of Maui for their blissful ocean front “I dos”.
Jacqui looks breathtaking in her gorgeous gown from Made with Love, and we’re loving the boho vibe throughout their big day styled by Bliss Wedding Design. This certainly isn’t your typical wedding in Hawaii! See more beautiful moments captured by Dmitri and Sandra Photography and don’t miss the full gallery after.
Private island engagement
From the beautiful bride, Jacqui: We met in sunny Los Angeles where I am from. We were both at a lounge in Hollywood called The Sky Bar. Dave came up to me and I instantly fell for his Aussie accent! The proposal was magical! It was pretty much like winning The Bachelor. Dave took me to a private island in Cairns, QLD (great barrier reef) and there was a drone capturing the whole thing.
seeing it all come to light
We pretty much just let the Bliss team go nuts with our romantic boho inspo! We made cute signs for the bars "drink menu", and I wanted bright fuchsia mixed with soft pinks and whites and a touch of greenery. My beautiful mom sadly passed away exactly one month after our wedding. It was a dream come true having her walk me down the aisle. She was so pleased with how everything looked. We talked for months about wedding ideas and seeing it come to light was truly amazing.
trust the wedding experts
Dave and I come from worlds apart and we are thrilled we got to get married in Maui. Having the Bliss wedding planners for a destination wedding saved us so much grief! It truly helped to have an amazing team of wedding experts to help us. The day went so smoothly that all we had to worry about was not tripping down the aisle!!
