After greeting the sunrise at the Haleakala Crater and driving the Road to Hana (with stops for waterfalls, hiking, and banana bread), we met up with our families on the south side of Maui. We woke up Sunday morning, did some snorkeling and sunbathing, then got ready and met back up on the beach in front of our hotel (the perfect and lovely Makena Beach and Golf Resort - check out the photos of the hotel courtyard!) for a barefoot ceremony in the sand just before sunset. Exhilarating, joyful, emotional, and pretty dang perfect.
After a few days relaxing with family, they went back home and we took off for the Big Island for some more adventuring and honeymooning. All of it was just so incredible.
First of all, the landscapes are so diverse. From waterfalls and lush tropical forests . . .
Plus, the whole getting-married thing was pretty cool too.
