Planning your gay wedding on Maui

Or perhaps we should just call it "wedding". With the Supreme Court decision today legalizing same sex marriage all over the U.S., a wedding is now just a wedding. We are so pleased to see justice finally done and that our clients can now go back home after their wedding knowing that their union will be legally recognized in their home state. We have been planning and photographing same sex unions since Hawaii legislated "Civil Unions" a few years ago and more recently when Hawaii was ahead of the curve and legalized gay marriage. Those first few couples who took advantage of the civil union laws and came out to Maui are brave souls, pioneers who took vows in public even though it wasn't legal in the country, yet we never heard a discouraging word from anyone who might have been on the beach that day but instead the couple would be treated to applause from the few folks who might have been paying attention to the ceremony from afar. But all that is over now. Marriage is just that, whether you are of the same or opposite gender and we are so happy for our friends who no longer have to feel even a little uncomfortable.

So with that great news we'd like to post a few images from our past pioneers in gay marriage, those folks who came out here to be married just like anybody else.
