Denise + David :: Relight My Fire (Maui, Hawaii) Part II of III

Words by Maureen Young

Edmonton Wedding Photography

“To an island where we’ll meet
You’ll hear the music fill the air
I’ll put a flower in your hair

Through the breezes through the trees
Move so pretty, you’re all I see
As the world keeps spinning round
You hold me right here right now

Lucky I’m in love with my best friend”

~ Lucky performed by Jason Mraz and Colbie Callait

There were literally over 100 doves flying around us as newlyweds Denise + David danced around the cliff top and never stopped grinning for a moment.  Rina had a near miss with when a mango fell just inches from her head (poor girl, she does suffer for her art!) but avoiding falling fruit & ‘presents’ from the doves was well worth it to enjoy those first sweet moments with Denise + David as husband + wife.

Frederic, the owner of this private estate, had trained these doves by hand feeding them daily. Denise + David also had a chance to hang out with the birds, one on one, with clusters of sunflower seeds in hand.

Little did David know that it was his father, Michael, who was the mastermind behind the wet surprise. We conveniently posed them for a group shot near the faucet.  =)

Denise + David’s 23 guests enjoyed appetizers and the sight of doves flying from the clifftop during the couples creative shoot.  Denise + David then joined their guests for a sunset buffet.  The bridal party as well as immediate family members gave speeches that spoke to how well-matched Denise + David are; the amazing, talented creative married to a genius engineer.   While Denise was nicknamed Shifty by older brother Craig for all the creative ideas she’d come up with, David and his groomsmen were also crafting up experiments with their engineering brains.  The speeches alternatively brought on laughter, tears and hugs.

Capping off their amazing day, Denise + David had fire dancers (nearly topless fire dancers as well to the delight of Denise’s niece!)

Balancing off the fire dancers of Part II is an Infused Studios first (here’s a hint, it involves water).  That & Denise + David show off their adventurous side.

Love. You. Always.
