HAIKU MILL WEDDING
This wedding was an experience. The day before we were set to fly out to the Haiku Mill on Maui there was a Hurricane warning.

The Mill was one of the first sugar plantations on the islands. It was built in 1858 and then left abandoned for one hundred years and this left the property lush and covered in vines. That is exactly why this wedding venue is so charming, you can feel the history when you walk onto the grounds. The gritty texture and soft flora make a beautiful combination, honestly, the Haiku is a photographers dream come true. This venue is pure romance.

Not only were we pulling double duty with Super 8 film and photos, We were up against Hurricane Lane. We had a feeling we were flying into something when we noticed that we were just 2 of 8 passengers on our flight from Portland into Maui. We are used to shooting in the rain, but the kind of rain Hurricane Lane brought to this wedding was on another level. The thing is though, it didn’t matter, because loved prevailed and everyone was feeling it. We’re just happy to have been a part of it. There was a stunning glass ceiling that draped over thick stone walls of the venue which kept us all dry. A large mango tree just outside of the ceremony site was covered in Italian lighting as it swayed from side to side as the strong wind blew.
Thank you to our girls with Cherry on Top - you two are angels and we love you.
Thanks to the Haiku Mill for pulling off the impossible and not shutting this wedding down due to the hurricane.
But most of all thank you to the beautiful couple for having us.
