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.

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.
"What do we do in case of rain?" is something we hear very often. Marry Me Maui does about 200 weddings per year. Most of them are beach weddings at various locations around the island.

We are required to pull permits from the state for every beach wedding and they allow us 2 locations. This is usually sufficient to avoid a rain-out in cases of inclement weather.
