Matt and Heather were married at a private beachfront home in Wailea on the island of Maui in Hawaii. They were originally going to be married at the Hoku Lani Estate next to the famous Keawalai Church (built in 1855 and made of 3 foot thick lava rock) but were forced to relocate venues just weeks before their wedding! Luckily, they pulled some strings and secured a friend’s beachfront estate, just minutes from the Four Seasons on Makena Beach.
Heather and Matt got ready at The Four Seasons, and then moved over to the home for their First Look, Ceremony and Reception.
Heather converted to Judaism, and the ketubah signing was sweet and touching. The rabbi is an accomplished musician and incorporated the guitar into the entire 30-minute long ritual. Their entire wedding party and immediate family members were in the room and everyone held each other and sang and moved in rhythm.
Another favorite moment from the ceremony was when Matthew tried to break the glass on the grass — it wouldn’t break! So he grabbed it and ran onto the deck and jumped on it. Everyone yelled “mazel tov!” while he ran back to his bride — they embraced and kissed!
Mazel tov, Heather and Matthew!
