Destination Weddings


Fear and loathing of the current economic crisis gives rise to opportunity. A destination wedding in Maui can be the perfect solution to the big wedding  blues that many couples are experiencing. For a fraction of the cost of that hometown wedding with a guest list of 200 and a nerve shattering reception, a bride and groom can get away to Maui's pristine beaches for an incredible wedding experience coupled with a world class honeymoon. We have many reasonably priced wedding packages that include professional photography online galleries and wedding albums. The best part of your Maui wedding is the location: Sandy beaches with tropical sunsets and the best part is they're free.

Airline prices are dropping and five star hotels are offering cut rates to draw business. The requirements for a marriage license in Hawaii are minimal, unlike the Caribbean or Mexico, third world countries that lack the infrastructure and amenities of the US. So check our Maui weddings website. Compare prices and photography with other companies and give us a call. We can handle last minute requests for your romantic spur of the moment tropical wedding in Paradise.

Maui Wedding Packages


Maui Wedding Packages come in all different prices. Some companies promise everything for a ridiculously low price. We all know you get what you pay for and a wedding isn't any different. The low cost, "we-will-not-be-undersold" wedding planner will cut corners somewhere to keep the price down and that somewhere is generally the photography. Experienced professionals, in any field, aren't cheap. They have spent years honing their craft and are adept at delivering the goods. There's not much time at a Maui Sunset Wedding to capture all the emotion and beauty. Our professionals have the experience and talent to coordinate a successful sunset wedding photography session. Our Maui wedding Packages include state of the art digital flush mount collage albums, online galleries and DVD slideshows. We know you'll love the images we provide for you to remember a once in a lifetime day.

Maui Weddings


We've talked about all the hoo-hah regarding beach wedding permits and restrictions put in place by a misguided state department of land and natural resources. These guys want to turn Maui into a museum where you can look but don't touch. Even though these regulations are currently in place and being followed by reputable planner like Marry Me Maui Wedding Planners, change is in the wind. The First Amendment to the constitution of the United States prohibits the government from establishing a religion or preventing the free exercise thereof. The right of entry permit clearly abrogates this constitutionally guaranteed right and will be challenged in court very soon. Stay tuned to this blog in the days and weeks ahead as we follow the course of this litigation. This very same lawsuit was upheld back in 2001 and the state was told to treat beach weddings the same as a birthday party, only with more deference. It shouldn't be long until we're back to business as usual. In the meantime, don't hesitate to book a Maui beach wedding. We have all the permit regulations covered and can guarantee you a once in a lifetime experience on the shores of the Pacific.

Maui Weddings





Maui Wedding Photographers come in all different shapes and sizes with varying degrees of experience and professionalism. Some have worked as a photographer for half their lives, honing their skills as portrait, wedding and commercial photographers, improving their craft and artistry while providing superior quality work for their clients. Others are amateurs with a day job. How can you tell? One way is by using the age old axiom: "You get what you pay for". Certainly, you don't want to get ripped off or pay too much, but when a Maui wedding planner offers you a wedding package with a photo album for $295.00, you can be pretty sure you're not hiring a professional. Professionals charge a fair price for their work. Our Maui Wedding Photographer spends more time on the edit than on the shoot. This means he is spending quality time with the images, working his magic in photoshop to be sure you're getting killer images. If you're getting the images before you leave the island, your photographer is either not busy (bad sign #1) or she's shooting in jpeg format and dumping the images onto a cd without a full edit (bad sign #2). 

A strobe on camera is the only way amateurs know how to light a scene. Certainly, there's a time and a place for it but a professional knows how to use a wireless strobe off camera to create a professional looking sunset portrait that you would actually want to blow up and hang in your living room. After all, once the tan has faded and the Visa bill is paid off, all you have left are the images. Be sure you're hiring a seasoned pro who knows what he's doing.

Maui Weddings are an incredibly romantic and surprisingly economical way to celebrate your marriage.

Maui Hawaii Wedding Planners




When considering a location for your romantic Maui wedding, don't overlook the many quality private venues available for your beachfront ceremony and reception. While having your toes in the Maui sand while reciting your wedding vows is very cool, there are many variables that your wedding planner cannot control. In the event of an unexpectedly crowded beach, rain or a winter storm that has washed away the shoreline, we have very few options in a public venue. A private venue, on the other hand, offers privacy, flexibility and "Plan B". We can procure many different venues, from 300 to 3000 dollars, which offer spectacular scenery, reception options, and flexibility. Before you tell yourself you can't afford it, consult with your wedding professional. You'll be surprised how far your dollars can go.

Beach weddings can be very romantic as well as economical. While private venues charge for their lawn, a public beach is free with the exception of a right of entry permit which runs about 20 bucks. Some beaches have low palms, others have beautiful lava formations. Sometimes we take a little trek off the beaten path to hidden beaches that only the locals know about. Please feel free to ask us about them. If you want guaranteed privacy, a private venue is recommended. Either way, you can't go wrong on Maui, the number one island destination in the world.

Maui Wedding Albums



Your Maui wedding album will be the most lasting legacy of your Maui wedding. A fine leather collage album printed on a stiff substrate bound in fine leather is one of the best ways to show friends and family the beautiful day you had in paradise. The Maui wedding photographers at Marry Me Maui have been creating these beautiful keepsakes for years. We have plenty of Maui wedding packages that include these albums. Even if you choose an ala carte package, don't forget to include one of these albums. Your children will be glad you did.
