Show Us Your Life - Wedding Receptions and Honeymoon

Show Us Your Life with Kelly‘s Korner

BIG Thanks to Tricia who designed this new button - the code is on the right!!!!

To see all posts and the upcoming schedule for "Show Us Your Life" - Visit HERE.

Tonight is the last of the Wedding Series. I don't have a whole lot of wedding reception pictures. We had our reception in the old sanctuary of my parent's church. It was really pretty. We had iron lanterns and fall leaves as centerpieces on the tables. The tables all had brown tablecloths. We had a lot of good food. This is us cutting our cake.
Our grooms cake was pretty - chocolate with grapes on it for a fall feel.
My big wedding cake
We honeymooned in Maui, Hawaii. We stayed at the Westin Maui.
I'm glad we are doing this because I haven't looked at our honeymoon pictures in probably 5 years and it was fun to look through them. Except for the fact that I realized how thin and tan I was on our honeymoon - that made me a little sad. ha! It was such a wonderful trip and we were SO happy!
Scott's favorite part of the day - breakfast buffet. ha!
One night on our way to dinner - Hawaii is SO romantic !
One of the pools at our hotel.
We rented a yellow convertible but we only had it one day of our vacation. So we really only got around to see the island for one full day. The rest of the time we just stayed at our hotel and ate at restaurants nearby. That was great and worked fine for us - we just wanted to relax but someday I'd like to go back to Maui and see more of the island.

Our favorite food in hawaii - Hula Pie!
This was on our dinner cruise. This was NOT romantic. We payed good money to go on this "dinner" cruise and they brought out stouffer's lasagna in tin pans and I got sick the minute I got on the boat and had to lay on the floor for the 3 hour cruise. We ended up getting McDonalds to go and going back to our hotel room so we could watch Arkansas play South Carolina in football (this was November). We played them in Little Rock on ESPN on a Thurs night on a cold night. It was very surreal sitting in our room at 4 in the afternoon and watching a live game being played in the dark with everyone wearing coats. ha!

Did anyone else go to Maui on your honeymoon? We loved it and it will always be a special memory for us. I always dreamed of going to Hawaii on my honeymoon and it was fun to make that dream a reality!!! It was totally worth waiting for!

Heidi said...

I am getting married in September and we plan on going to Maui for our Honeymoon... We are trying to finalize hotel plans... Did you like the westin? Would you recommend it? Also are there any great restaurants you would recommend?

Melissa Marie said...

What beautiful pictures!! I wish we would have gone to Maui for our honeymoon. We had a horrible experience in the Virgin Islands...(hurricane hit while we were there, horrible food, etc)...
the highlight of our stay there was finding the McDonalds. We always joke around that our vacations can only get better after our experience in the Virgin Islands. haha :)

Sarah said...

I would LOVE for us to go to Hawaii, but would need some good cost-cutting ideas while I'm still in school. Do you having any or is it just something that you save for and is well worth it? It looks so beautiful and romantic!!

sarah m said...

Beautiful pictures!! I love the colors of your wedding. And I can't WAIT to get to Hawaii one day! Thanks for doing this wedding theme...it's been so much fun reminiscing and seeing everyone else's big day! :)

Annie said...

I am laughing that you took pics of the food even back then, B.B. (before blog)! I take pics of everything now, including food, because of my blog, but love that you've done that forever! ha...
Your pics are great! I want to go to Hawaii... your pics and the hula pie make me REALLY want to go! :)

Jen said...

Hey, My name is Jennifer and your blog is a daily read for me... My husband and I went to Maui too and stayed at the Westin, so I was like OMG, when I saw your pics... I think we took the exact same ones in the same exact spot... the only difference is that we rented a red convertable..(totally butchered that word)... so fun to see your pics!

Kate said...

My parents live on Maui so we go every year- we have been to the Westin many times. Hula pie ia also a coffee flavor. We have a dog named Hula pie.

Beautiful pictures- thanks for sharing.

Gayla said...

jealous! gorgeous photos of hawaii, and i love your wedding cakes! so wish we could have gotten married in the fall (my fave season), but we were accomodating my teacher's schedule!

Nikki Cogg said...

Thanks so much for your sweet comment! I am dying to get to Maui (my mom named our cat Maui because she loved the island so much) I'm sorry to hear about the dinner cruise :( That would be so disappointing. But the rest of your trip looked great!! Your reception and cake were beautiful as well :) Have a great night!

Wendy said...

I love the groom's cake tradition. Evidently, it's a southern tradition - I introduced it to all of my 'northern' friends at our wedding (I grew up in AR - FSM to be exact)! My husband is allergic to dairy so his "cake" was really a (3-D) round, rice krispy treat decorated w/ fondant to look like a baseball. :) Fun stuff!

Great pictures - so jealous of your honeymoon!!

newmanfamily said...

We went to Maui and Oahu for our honeymoon 8 years ago. We rented a convertible for our entire time there and LOVED it! We went snorkeling, helicopter ride, luau, and our favorite was the Heavenly Road to Hana! If you didn't do that, you must go back. I think I have that same teal sweater you have on. Funny! Our scanner is in storage so I haven't been able to participate but have enjoyed!

Emily said...

We went to Maui on our honeymoon too! We were at the Marriott, just down from the Westin! Didn't you LOVE Whaler's Village? It was so perfect...good food within walking distance! We did absolutely NOTHING...and loved it! Next time, we'll rent a car and explore also. Can't wait to go back!

Myra said...

Kelly, I loved your reception pictures! I always wanted to get married in the fall, but didn't want to wait any longer! ha!

Your honeymoon looked AMAZING! You're not alone in being a "little sad" when looking back at wedding/honeymoon photos. I guess I can use it for motivation, huh?! I think you look great though! Having our babies in our arms makes it all worth it!

Anna said...

We went to Maui too! My most favorite place. We stayed at the Hyatt and would highly recommend it. You should go back and do the road to Hana!

Great reception pics!

Betsy McK said...

We just went to Maui again this summer and stayed at the Maui, Westin Villas (time share part)and took all 3 kiddos! It was a blast and love it there!!!! Heck I think I could move there :o).

Myra said...

Oh, and thank you for your sweet comment on my blog! :)

Melissa Abby said...

We went to Maui and Kauai for our honeymoon and stayed at the Sheraton right down the beach from the Westin. It was the best trip!! We've been back a couple times and it's never quite as great as the honeymoon was :) Love your pictures, you guys are cute!

Jenna said...

Hi Kelly! I am new to your blog and I love love love it!! Your wedding was beautiful as well as you!

Corby and Lauren said...

What beautiful pictures of Hawaii! I definitely want to look through mine again. And yes, it would make me sad too...it was the last time I ever wore a bikini, thanks to the marriage weight gain!! We went to Maui too, and we stayed at the Grand Wailea. And since we weren't old enough to rent a car (HA! You had to be 25 and we were 23!), we just ate at our resort and 4 Seasons. I think the Westin was close too! We loved it there and certainly hope to go back for an anniversary. Since the flight is rather brutal, we won't be going any time soon. I don't think Harper would handle that well!

Maddy said...

I love hawaii! Can you please email me back i am getting to the point where i am starting to feel a little bit ignored. PLEASE email me back i would love it and i asked you a couple of questions and they havnt been answered i am pretty much being ignored!
maddyforeman@yahoo.com email me as soon as possible!

Michele A. said...

Hi Kelly! I am not married and have not gone on a honeymoon (obviously :-) but I had to comment about watching college football on vacation. My cousin got married at Sandals Whitehouse, Jamaica (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!) and a bunch of us flew down for the wedding. The day we got there, my parents, sister and I sat in the game room and watched the Penn State/Wisconsin game live on the tv! So I totally understand (we are die hard PSU fans and went to Jamaica in October). Thank you for sharing your pictures and story!

Kristin said...

You looked gorgeous! I have always wanted to go to Hawaii! Maybe one day :)

panamamama said...

We don't have ANY pics from our honeymoon! (Don't know why I never realized that before.) I don't know if we even had a camera when we got married. I saved the tickets, etc. We went to Cancun and have been back to that area many times as a family with the kids. Want to go to Hawaii and will have to get tips from you!
Love ya,
Shell

The Brady Family said...

My husband and I got married in Maui and spent a week there. We LOVED it. We are hopeing to go back for our 10 yr. anniv. and taking our 2 daughters with us! :)

THE WATERMELON TREE said...

We went to Maui for our honeymoon and stayed at the Fairmont Kea Lani!! We had the BEST time and we also rented a convertable (red), the only way to see the island!! We want to go back so bad!!

Anna said...

That's too funny! We went to Maui too and we rented a yellow convertible mustang too!! But we had it the whole week because we were in a condo and needed transportation. We also went on that horrible dinner cruise. We got seated with two young female escorts and the food/drinks were terrible. Thankfully we didn't get sick. That would have been terrible. Sadly we don't have pics - we borrowed my parents camera and when we got back my dad accidentally deleted them. Yikes! We don't talk about it. So fun to see your pics!!

Kacey said...

You guys look so happy!

We went to Maui for our honeymoon (in November as well!) and stayed near the Westin. Can't remember the name of the hotel, but it wasn't far from the Ka'anapali McDonald's where you probably ate! Our dinner cruise wasn't bad, but I got SO sick on our little snorkeling cruise...

Lindsey said...

My hubby and I went there and stayed at that same hotel and LOVED the breakfast buffet! We went on a dinner type cruise....and I was sick too..ugh! :) love looking back

Creekmore's said...

That's the night we brought our first son home from the hospital and my husband and baby boy watched their first Razorback game together! LOL

Todd and Courtney said...

I love it Kelly!!! We actually just cancelled a trip to Maui where we had reservations at the Westin. How funny! I just felt uncomfortable with all of that N. Korea missile stuff going on and leaving Lauren during that.

I LOVE your pictures. Maui looks gorgeous!

Pamela said...

We went to Maui as well on our Honeymoon but that was gees 8 years ago and hence no computer collection of pics to share. It is truly beautiful and sooo peaceful. We too rented a convertible but our was red. Our fave thing was going on the Whale watching cruise. I was in tears at WM when I got the pics back and they were double exposed even though they were taken with a camera that was suppose to prevent that.
Truly a magical place and we hope to take our boys there one day. We loved the Winery and even though we do not drink we brought back an entire box of Hawaiian wine. Still have most of it though I am sure it has expired by now.
Thanx for sharing and bringing back some great memories!

Launa said...

HULA PIE! It's my husbands absolute favorite! We actually got married at the Westin Maui... isn't it absolutely gorgeous? And I dream of Leilani's when my kids are driving me crazy!

Hoy and Ali said...

My husband and I got married on Maui at the Grand Waelia (?sp) hotel. It was beautiful. We stayed there for a few days then went to Oahu for a week. We had both sets of parents and grandmothers with us, and YES we stayed in separate hotel rooms until we were married. We're old fashioned!!! I enjoy reading your blag daily!

MamaBear said...

I went to Hawaii(Honolulu in college - we were suppose to see a luau one night but right as we were getting off the bus the tire recycling plant next door started on fire and the sky was raining rubber chunks. No luau for us!

The other memorable moment was when one of the Navy guys we met who were docked there ran into a former classmate of his he hadn't seen since high school. Sad part was that she was a prostit*te now. :(

(we weren't 21 so our entertainment was walking around the streets people watching)

Anyway, I enjoyed seeing your pictures! One of these days I'll have to join in - your carnivals are always a great way to record things I want my kids to read about some day.

Have a great weekend and don't let that inbox keep you up at night :)

Lindsey Conrad - Nabors said...

That Hula pie looks SOOO good!! I think it is calling my name!!

Leah said...

My husband works at the Westin Maui and we live right down the road! It has changed a little in 5 years, its a lot nicer! Maybe you will have to come back and see it!

Undomesticated Newlywed said...

We stayed at the Westin Resort in Kaanapali beach in Maui for our honeymoon as well. We loved it...but now it seems like it went by way to fast!

Andy and Wendy Ingram said...

Kelly, what wonderful memories and pictures! Thanks for sharing God's goodness in your lives with us through your blog! How great that you guys were able to go to Maui! God does care about the desires of our hearts! We honeymooned in Colorado, because my husband was in medical school and it was all we could afford, but it was really perfect because all we cared about was being with each other. We are really hoping to go to Maui before our oldest graduates from highschool. We will have to remember The Westin when we make plans.

Harper looked so sweet and happy in her little My Little Pony outfit from your last blog.

Katie Kubler said...

This is my FIRST Show Us Your Life : LOVED Joining in on the fun!! Thanks!

Rachel E. said...

Hi Kelly,
Well, I've never honeymooned on Maui (I'm not married--yet!) but I'm Native Hawaiian and have lived on Oahu my whole life. If you ever get the chance to come back, you should check out Oahu--lots more to do, and it's not just all hotels and "tourist land."

Hula Pie is not really Hawaiian, by the way. If you come to Oahu, you can try some of the real lu'au food: poi, kalua pig, laulau, etc. I would love to meet you and show you around! Hawaii is WAY more than just hotels and pools. :-)

TriciaNae said...

We didn't go on a honeymoon...but I would love to go to Hawaii now. Is there a anniversarymoon? If not, I think there should be!

sara said...

We went to Maui on our honeymoon 12 years ago. We stayed at the Ritz Carlton at Kapalua. It was so awesome and I'd love to go back and take our son one day.

Roo and Wren's Mama said...

Great pictures! Honeymoons are so happy. :) Love your turquoise sweater/top - super cute.
And now I want to go to Hawaii! Maybe for our 10th anniversary, ha! :)

Amanda said...

Yes! We went to Maui for our honeymoon and stayed at the Hyatt. And I have zero pictures. What were we thinking? We're hoping to go back next summer and I will be taking a million pictures. And I can't wait to see my man behind the wheel of a red Mustang convertible. *Sigh*

Lynn said...

My wedding and honeymoon were a lot more low key. My parents didn't approve of my future husband and refused to go to the wedding. So my friends and new family helped pull it together. We couldn't afford to go anywhere that special, the Wisconsin Dells. But guess we did something right...we'll be celebrating our 33rd anniversary in a few weeks.
Know that I'm here praying!
Romans 8:15-18 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Darla said...

we went to the Cayman Islands for our honeymoon and then went to Maui for our 5 year anniversary. I think we stayed in the same hotel as you...I've got to go pull out the pictures.

My teenager is scanning in all my old pics as her summer "job" but she hasn't gotten any wedding/honeymoon ones yet. I had 27 BOXES of pictures from the birth of my first child until today (14 years). It's almost 10,000 pics. I'm SO thankful for digital now!!

Wish I could link, but it will have to wait.

Claire said...

What beautiful pictures! I would like to go to Hawaii one day. :-)

Holly said...

We went to Hawaii for our honeymoon. I let my husband pick the island since he had never been there and he wanted to go to Oahu so that's where we went. My sister and her husband went to Maui for their honeymoon. I love going to Hawaii. That is such a bummer about the dinner cruise! I can't believe they served you lasagna! I've been on a couple of them and they served pretty good food. My mom hates them because of the rocking of the boat-makes her seasick.

Mary said...

looks like yall had a GREAT time...i just had throw this is...Go Gamecocks! :)
we play yall on November 7 this year and i'm mad bc it is in Arkansas...i live in south carolina, can't you tell :)

The Allens said...

I think it's great that you took pictures of your meals on your honeymoon!

Your wedding and honeymoon look just perfect - so happy!

Sonya said...

I have never been to Hawaii! We went to Jamaica for our honey moon.

The Toll House Cookie said...

Great reception photos, Kelly! I love the bridal cake and grooms cake!! We also went to Hawaii on our honeymoon! We spent 2 days on Oahu and 4 days on Maui. Since then, we went back on our 10th anniversary (went to Kauai and Maui) and we discussed making it a 10 year tradition so we may be back in 3 years (and do Kauai and the Big Island)!

Katie said...

I would love to go to Hawaii one day. Everything looks so beautiful there! That stinks about your romantic dinner cruise. On our honeymoon, we were gifted with romantic dinner cruise reservations from Mike's company. So we get all dolled up and ready for a romantic evening, and when we show up to board the boat.....it's a pirate ship booze cruise type deal!!!! There were "pirates" running around with wooden swords (I swear some were cardboard) and they shot off bottle rockets off the side for cannons. The food was terrible and once it got dark they just blared bad music and it turned into some awful cheap club scene. We were, needless to say, so incredibly disappointed. We laughed about it later. Much later! :o)

I love y'all's groom's cake, by the way. I always like the traditional chocolate with fruit version.

Bethany said...

Not only did we go to Maui on our honeymoon, but we also stayed at the WESTIN!!! Wasn't it a fabulous hotel?? I'm leaving for a vacation today so I only have time to share some reception pictures, but I'll let you know when I post my maui photos one day so that you can check them out and see what looks familiar from your trip! Have a great weekend Kelly; thanks for hosting this "show us your life" Friday!

Jesse and Lacey said...

Beautiful wedding and honeymoon pictures! It made me smile this morning to see the Westin Maui - we stayed there for our honeymoon too. Almost 5 years ago! Were the Christmas decorations up yet when you were there? They had the most beautiful Christmas trees and pink poinsettas everywhere. I have a baby girl, Annabelle, who is 3 months - so I have loved reading about Harper and hearing what we have coming in the next few months! I also borrowed your crib pictures with the months written down idea!

Lianna Knight said...

Kelly...we were right nextdoor to you for our honeymoon :) We stayed at the Grand Wailea Hotel and Spa...and you are right Maui was GORGEOUS!

Lauren Kelly said...

You make me want to go to Hawaii so stinkin bad right now. You and Scott both look so great and happy in those pictures :)

Angela said...

Not only did we go to Hawaii for our honeymoon, but we stayed at the exact same place you did -- The Westin Maui!!! It sure was gorgeous and amazing. :)

Christina said...

First, LOVE your blog and little Harper. I check in every day! My husband and I went to Maui, AND we stayed at the Westin! Those spots in your photos took me right back there....even though it was almost 17 years ago! We will celebrate our anniversary in September....would be great to go back someday, maybe for our 20th?!

Nicolasa said...

Some day we will get to Hawaii! Beautiful pictures!

Katie said...

Oh my goodness, you and Scott both look so young in those pictures!

Your Hawaii pictures are beautiful. We hope to go there someday! We went on a Caribbean cruise for our honeymoon and it was wonderful!! I'm going to put up my pictures of it now!

Julia said...

Have I mentioned how beautiful you are? And have I mentioned what a beautiful bride/honeymooner you were? No? Then OMG!!!!!!!! YOU ARE SO BEAUTIFUL AND WERE SUCH A BEAUTIFUL BRIDE AND HONEYMOONER!!!! Sorry I won't be participating this week. Unfortunatley my reception was a little on the sad side (family drama) and I don't have any digital pics of our honeymoon. But LOVE LOVE LOVE YOURS!!!!!!!

timlinzrowland said...

I went to Maui for my honeymoon 7 1/2 years ago. It was the end of April and the end of whale watching season but we still got to see some whales. We stayed at Kannapali Shores and it was amazing. It is funny that you said you want to go back and see more of the island because when we went we staryed for 8 days and we were so busy we had no time to just sit and relax.We went over to Lanai another island adn snorkeled, and then we had a sunset cruise that was tons of fun but no sunset due to rain coming in, we had a helicopter tour, and we did the dreaded road to Hana and it was L.O.N.G. We were to young to rent a car so we road the bus everywhere, it wasn't as bad as we thought it would be riding a bus on our honeymoon. Needless to say we want to go back and just lay on the beach and relax!

Tara G. said...

We went to Hawaii on our first anniversary because it was cheaper and closer to fly from Alaska. We got married in the Atlanta area. Very pretty photos!!

Kandi West said...

I always crack up at Scott's pictures of food! If he ever gives up being a techie, he can be a food photographer! Wouldn't he just love doing that every day???

Kama @ Today's Housewife said...

I love Hawaii! My parents took us there in college and I can't wait to go back with my husband some day...when our kids can be babysat by the grandparents! :) Thanks for always having such fun stuff to talk about on here. I love reading all of the stories!!

Caroline said...

We went to Kauai for our honeymoon! My husband loved the breakfast buffet too!

Melissa said...

It looks like you had a great wedding and honeymoon. My husband and I are fortunate enough to visit Hawaii at least once a year and one of the first nights we are there we always have to get a hula pie. Glad you liked it too!

Summer said...

What beautiful pics and the honeymoon looked fabulous... Sorry about the dinner cruise :0( ! Loved the car!!!

LeeAnn Russell said...

We just got back from Maui and we stayed at the Westin. It was so beautiful and we hope to go back again sometime. I liked the hula pie too. We went to Leilani's next door everyday for lunch. This is the first time I have left a comment but I enjoy reading your blog. Harper is so adorable!

Ashley said...

First, the picture of Harper in the header where she is drooling just made me giggle! Love it!
Both of your cakes look scrumptious!
Hawaii sounds like an amazing honeymoon! Looks like you had a very lovely, relaxing trip. :)

Jeanette said...

We spent our 15th anniversary at Kaanapali Beach Hotel on Maui. It was gorgeous and your pictures brought back some great memories for me :} It was 5 years ago for us too!! We soooooo need to get back there :}

"Adair Flair" said...

Everything was beautiful! Funny story...we also had grapes on our groom's cake...my husband's grandmother told us that putting grapes on the groom's cake is an old tradition to promote fertility (HAHA)...how ironic...we ran around to make sure those grapes were on that groom's cake...wish they would have worked HA!

DJones said...

We did not go for our honeymoon, but we did spend 11 wonderful days for our 10th anniversary. We loved,loved,loved it!!

Samantha @ Mama Notes said...

we honeymooned in Hawaii too- I miss it! I remember thinking I wasn't ideal body weight then but looking back at those pictures I realize how small I was too! ha! :)

Love Being a Nonny said...

You looked great...though you STILL look great to me!

Thanks for going to the effort to do this every Friday. I look so forward to these Friday posts...even though I have never participated.

Would still love to see a post on *Summer camps*. I know you probably have hundreds of requests though. So, it's fine. Just thought you might want to add this to the list!!!

Have a super weekend with your precious family!

Mary Avery said...

I love the fall colors! I wanted a fall wedding, but with football in the south it was a no-go! Kinda sad, but true. Hawaii looks fun too. Tulsa is the farthest west I've ever been, Ha!

Alex and Jill said...

We didn't honeymoon in Hawaii but have vacationed there. We went on the same type 'dinner cruise' and I had to take so much medicine for the motion sickness that I was laid out asleep for the entire thing! LOL Your pics are great! Makes me want to go back!

Newlywed Next Door said...

We went to Maui too! We stayed at the Grand Wailea!

Dennis And Amy said...

I went to Maui for my honeymoon. We stayed at the Grand Wailea and it was amazing. We had a great time in Maui and out of all the islands that we visited (Oahu and The Big Island) Maui was our favorite.

Thanks for letting me remember a wonderful time!

DSusic said...

When I started reading your blog last January I remembered you haveing a blog for women trying to concieve... I wasn't at that time but the in February my husband and I decided that we'd like to start our family. It has been 7 months and still nothing. I'm not worried but I'd really like to find the prayer blog you have set up for the "wanna be mommies" :) You can email it to me at dnh_6@hotmail.com if you don't mind. When you aren't busy of course... :)

Thanks!
Deedee

Megan said...

Charlie & I went to Maui for our honeymoon. It had always been my dream to go. I still can't believe I had my dream vacation with my dream man!

Angela said...

I am enjoying this serious but not participating.
I think it's so neat you went to Maui. I want to go there really bad. Maybe when the kids are grown.
We went to Williamsburg and DC for our Honeymoon. Virginia is for lovers!

valerie said...

I've been to this very same area three times. One with my husband on our 20th anniversary. We always stay at the Whaler....next door or so from the Westin.
I love Whaler's village, LOVE the buffet at the Hyatt and love Lahaina. I so want to go back to Maui. It's so awesome!
We got married 30 years ago and stayed right here in Oklahoma for our honeymoon, but have been blessed to be able to travel a lot through the years since.

Kristina and TJ said...

Gorgeous pictures!! I hope to make it to Maui for our 5th Anniversary. Our friends stayed at the Westin there and loved it too.

Megan said...

We went to the Big Island and Maui on our honeymoon 4.5 years ago. We stayed at the Hyatt in Maui. I cannot wait to go back!

Katie Hutchens said...

Kelli!!! My husband and I went to Maui on our honeymoon and LOVED it. We went on the SAME dinner cruise and the food was terrible and they stuck us at a tiny, tiny table with another couple we did not know. There was NO romance! ha!

Windy City Kelley's said...

We went to Maui too for our honeymoon almost 3 years ago! I'm hoping to get back there in January of 2010, wish me luck on that :)

Amy said...

We're planning a big trip for our 10th anniversary in 2011 and Hawaii is on our short list and seeing these pictures makes me want to just go there and forget about our other choices. Just beautiful!

noahandlylasmommi said...

I love your honeymoon pictures. Hawaii is so beautiful. We went to Six Flags Marine World for our honeymoon :) lol

R. Wallis @ TrueBeauty said...

Beautiful pics! Hawaii is one of my absolute favorite vacation spots!

Anne N. said...

We went to Maui and Kauai for our honeymoon..and it was in November (1994!). I think the dinner cruise we went on must have been operational when y'all went...it was awful! I remember sitting by the pool with my husband and he kept asking the waiter for info on the Cowboys.

Heidi said...

beautiful pics just as expected!! I've never been to hawaii but it's a place I've always wanted to go to!

Sarah said...

Isn't Maui amazing? We stayed at Sugar Beach for our honeymoon - it was perfect. We have a Christmas ornament we got when we were there and it's so special to pull out every Christmas and remember our trip. We got married in November, too! The fall is great for a wedding. :-) Thanks so much for doing this - it's a blast!

Brittney said...

your wedding (AND honeymoon) were beautiful... I am jealous of Hawaii but I wouldn't trade Mexico for anything :0 we had a blast!!! Maybe Hawaii for a later date... haha!

Andie said...

We stayed at the Ritz on Maui for our Honeymoon. Such wonderful memories.

Alaska Girl said...

We honeymooned in Maui on Sugar Beach. They almost didn't let us rent a car because we were so young - but we had already paid for it in a package deal. They gave us a "rent a dent" and the first thing we did was go on the road to Hana! No wonder they don't rent cars to people under 25!
L

Kathryn said...

We went to Maui for our honeymoon too! Just like you, I always dreamed of going there for my honeymoon. I am so glad to know about the dinner cruise because we paid for it and missed it by 10 minutes because we did the road to Hana the same day!!! They wouldn't give us a refund, but said we didn't have to pay next time! Gotta go back now! It's nice to know that we didn't miss out on that much!

Amanda said...

we wnt to maui for our 5 year aav...since our dumb travel agent talked us out of hawaii and in to st.lucia for our honeymoon (don't bother ever w/ a trip there by the way) we stayed at the maui four seasons and it.was.to.die.for...best week of my life!!!

Ashley said...

My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon in Maui a little less than a month ago. We stayed at the same hotel and laid by the same pool! so fun to see your pics since we were just there!

~Sophia and Noah's Mommy~ said...

We stayed at the Westin and I even have a picture just like you in a black outfit by myself with all the beautiful landscaping in the background. The Westin was amazing. We are planning on going back and renewing our vows at ten years anniversary! :)

You silly girl! You may have been tan and a few pounds lighter but you have a beautiful baby as a trade off...I think it is a fair trade! Harper is super cute and you always look so pretty in pics!
Your cake is so pretty, I love the flowers you used.

Oh my gosh! We stayed at the Westin in Maui for our honeymoon! Isn't it the most romantic place you've ever been to? We want to go back so bad...maybe once our baby girl is a little older and we can play with her on the beach. Thanks for sharing!

Kelly- my husband and I went to Maui on our honeymoon too! We rented a convertible and actually went on the trip to Hana. If you ever go back, I would highly recommend this trip! It was such a perfect, romantic honeymoon! If you have time, stop by my blog and look at the pictures. I just recently posted them. I have been following your blog since Harper was born, and you are truly an amazing Christian woman and such an inspiration to me! Much love and keep up the good work =)

We didn't go to Maui on our honeymoon, we go every other year because my parents have a timeshare.

Hula Pie is my father's favorite as well. He even bought a Hula Pie plate to keep in the sunroom.

If you ever get back let me know and I can tell you all the places that we love to go.

By the way, you are beautiful!!

I went to Hawaii on my honeymoon. Before I got married I has been almost no where, so I had no idea where I wanted to go for a honeymoon. My husband suggested Hawaii. I was like, "Sure, OK." He said I would love it there and I was like, "If you say so."

But then we got there and within a day I was like, "This is so great!"

Hawaii is definitely a great honeymoon spot! I went to Maui too!
