Anna and Sean said I do at the beautiful beachside villa, Kukahiko Estate on Maui, Hawaii. The location was selected because of the couple’s love of travel, whom have been all over the world with friends far and near so Maui was the picture perfect meeting place for all.
The couple’s wedding planner, Bliss Wedding Design & Spectacular Events, shared with us their story.
Anna and Sean were Vietnamese language partners before being stationed in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam for their positions of vice consul and economic officer and cultural-affair officer. They have been traveling, exploring, and learning together ever since. A travel inspired destination wedding was the perfect choice when they began to plan their big day.
Maui was the ideal location for their destination “I do,” with our stunning sunsets, gorgeous backdrops, and warm and welcoming atmosphere; it was an exciting meeting point for their guests from all over the world.
The two incorporated many fun travel-themed details–from their place settings to their wooden sign displaying the exact amount of miles separating Maui from their guests’ homes–a wonderful tribute to their friends and family, honoring and thanking them for making the journey to Hawaii to celebrate with the couple.
Anna and Sean even incorporated an artistic aspect from their home in Vietnam: their wedding attire was made by the inimitable Lam Couture–a family-owned tailor shop that has been flourishing in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, for many years, and has recently opened up a custom tailoring shop in Washington, DC.
Anna, a vice consul at the United States Embassy in Paris, and Sean, a United States Consulate in Shenyang, China, prove that love not only crosses oceans, but also, that it does not diminish with distance, but rather strengthen and brighten with every nautical mile. Whatever these two choose to do, and wherever they plan on going, we have no doubt that they will illuminate their surroundings with their mutual exuberance and charm that we witnessed throughout the planning process and on their special day.
We were so honored to be able to help Anna and Sean celebrate their love and commitment here in Hawaii.
Congratulations to the newlyweds!
