Jenny + Jesse :: Maui Olowalu Plantation House

Their day had become about much more than just them. For Jenny and Jesse, bringing together their family and friends meant creating a complete experience, from beginning to end. This San Francisco couple has traveled the world extensively for work and pleasure, and both fell in love with the easy pace and sunny shores of Maui. They were so excited to share this island and its treasures with so many loved ones who had yet to visit Hawaii. Guests poured in from all ends of the country, and as soon as they stepped off the plane, were met with love and Aloha.

The Olowalu Plantation House¬†nestles right up to the ocean front and is full of history. Not one detail was neglected as they planned their dream wedding from afar with the fabulous Lena of Belle Destination Weddings. Jenny took a moment alone and peered into the waves from the white porch. In an instant, she felt the flood of emotion hit her from working so long and hard to create a day that had finally arrived. Holding back tears, she slipped into her gown and blushed when she peeked in the mirror. Her bridesmaids practiced bustling the back, and she opened the gift Jesse sent over. She had gone back and forth on what jewelry to wear, so when she opened the box from her sweetheart, she smiled immediately at the diamond earrings that went¬†perfectly with the look she chose. It was a fitting moment, because Jesse can anticipate her needs before she even realizes she has one. That’s how they are. After three deep breaths, Jenny made her way across the grounds to see her darling Jesse, who burst into tears at the sight of his bride. The day unfolded beautifully with joy and excitement, and the serene ocean breeze that mixed with the sun’s golden glow made every minute memorable.

Jenny and Jesse, we are so honored to not only have you as a couple, but as friends we love dearly. We’re so grateful you came into our lives and that we could share in something as beautiful as you two. Thank you for caring deeply about one another and everyone you have in your life. What you share is unique and precious – cherish it always! We love you!!! Let’s go back!!!
