Whisk me away to some exotic locale? Well, okay, twist my arm. I can't say many Canadians or really anyone who experiences a good bit of winter would argue against this invitation. In fact, winter destination weddings are really popular for residents of colder climates, so I thought I'd feature an intimate Maui elopement by local photographer Wendy Laurel to bring a little inspiration to your chilly Tuesday morning. From Maui to Mexico, the Caribbean to Colombia, winter destination weddings are becoming more tailored to the couple and their guests and less cookie-cutter, which I love to see, see, and photographers like Wendy Laurel are capturing them with style. Actually, I've had the pleasure of seeing Wendy's work a lot over the past couple of years and if you're heading to Maui on vacation and are looking for a fabulous way to have your holiday, anniversary, family, or wedding captured, you should definitely look her up!
