Colene and Thomas were married on January 4th at the Olawalu campground. They met back in 2012 in Logan, Utah while attending the same college and church.
Thomas proposed to Colene in July of 2015 with a surprise as he asked Colene to help him with his car. With a little extra time on the way they decided to drive in a canyon, which happened to be the place of a special date they had in the past. Unaware, Colene thought the detour was spontaneous. She was taken to a bridge that crossed a stream; the same place the couple was before. There they found a blanket with flowers. Colene realized that this was no longer by chance. At that moment, Thomas gave her the flowers and asked her to marry him. She said yes.
They decided to be married on Maui as that is where Thomas was born and raised. It was a beautiful day in Olawalu, Maui with about 20 guests. Pastor Rob Finberg of Grace Bible Church performed the ceremony. The bridesmaids each wore their own unique chiffon dresses from David’s Bridal. Catering was done by Brigit and Bernards. The Pink Champaign cake with Strawberry filling was from Cravings Hawaii.
Hair, Makeup, Flowers, and pretty much all things planning and decorating was done by my friend Lyndsay who is going to school at Utah State University in Business and hopes to become an event planner when she graduates this spring.
Steve Strand Photography was their Maui wedding photographer.
