Maui Wedding at Gannon's Wailea

Morning comes early around here and we generally like to get our Maui morning beach weddings started by 8AM in order to beat the beachgoers, snorkelers and toddlers that generally arrive by 9:30AM. 8AM might seem a bit early, especially if that means you're getting your in room hair and makeup at 5am, but the results are worthwhile and some people are early risers anyway. Don't forget, if you're from the east coast, with the time difference, 8am is really more like 1 or 2 in the afternoon! For those couples who don't want a 5am stylist appointment there's a couple of semi private venues we like to use for a later, more laid back morning wedding ceremony. Emily and Jeremy were one such couple who preferred a 10AM start time and wanted to use Gannon's in Wailea. The reason we are suggesting a place like Gannon's for a late morning wedding is that aside from the spectacular view and ono grinds, there's plenty of parking and we don't have to jockey for position on a crowded beach. Oh yeah, there's the chairs also! While the price of a semi private lawn might scare some people, Gannon's in Wailea is very reasonably priced and the grounds are meticulously maintained and manicured. We have done scores of weddings at Gannon's over the years, both morning and afternoon, and the couples have always been happy with the location, the service, the food, the ceremony and the photography. Don't get me wrong, I'm not putting down a morning beach wedding! Marry Me Maui has done numerous beach weddings at 8AM and sometimes, most of the time, we have the beach almost totally to ourselves in the hour it took to meet, have a ceremony and go through the photography session. This post is just to let couples know that if they prefer to wake up and get started a little later that there are options!
