Spring is almost here and love is in the air. Kira and Katy held their Civil Union on a lawn in Makena overlooking the Pacific Ocean with 20 of their closest friends and family.
The Reverend Diana George officiated the ceremony with soulfulness for this beautiful couple while our good friend and current touring member of HAPA, Tarvin Makia, serenaded us all with his sweet renditions of contemporary Hawaiian music and original compositions. On a warm afternoon in Maui with a gentle breeze blowing, live music is the perfect accompaniment for your civil union or Maui Wedding Ceremony.

Aloha and happy New Year! As we look forward to 2019 we wanted to take a look at what makes Maui the number one travel destination on the planet and why that makes our beautiful island the perfect place for you Maui wedding or elopement ceremony. You could go anywhere, like Cancun or Belize, but Maui's towering volcanic mountains, verdant rain forests, and warm cerulean sea, make her stand out above the crowd. _____________________________________________________________________ MAUI KAHU Maui Kahu Laki Kaahumanu ©Joe D'Alessandro There are a number of very soulful and spiritual Kahu's (ministers) on Maui. They easily share their mana'o with wedding and elopement couples from around the world. Some will play ukulele during the ceremony as an added gift to your ceremony. The oli (chant) is the ancient Hawaiian method of passing on the stories of the ancestors before a written language. It is also used as a prayer or blessing. Standing in the presenc
Christopher and Daniel's Gay wedding on Maui was performed yesterday by Reverand Kimo on beautiful Baby Beach in Lahaina. It was a very simple and heartfelt ceremony, just the two of them, with a couple of gorgeous maile ti lies. It had been raining on Maui for a couple of days with wind and gray skies but after this ceremony the clouds broke and we had the opportunity to view another fabulous Maui sunset. Funny thing about the rain, which is pretty rare on Maui, is that people tend to stay away from the beaches so we had Baby Beach pretty much to ourselves. Thanks to Daniel and Christopher, a very warm and loving couple, for letting us be part of your Maui Wedding !
Eye contact. That's our tip for couples today. Nothing is more important than eye contact for those memorable wedding photos. Most of our Maui Wedding ceremonie s last about 15 minutes; short and sweet. 15 or 20 minutes for your photographer to capture something that happens once in your lifetime. Not to put too much pressure on the wedding couple, but the beauty of your Maui wedding images depend not only on the professionalism of your photographer, but also by your facial expressions, relaxed attitude and eye contact with each other and the camera. During the ceremony, your attention should be on the person you are marrying. Looking into each others eyes during the vows, lei ceremony and ring exchange not only creates incredible images but also bonds the two of you during what is a very intimate moment.
