Our last post discussed late morning wedding options for those of you who like to sleep in. For those of you who enjoy waking up early, we present Cassandra and Klaudia's morning wedding ceremony at Kapalua Bay. Arriving a bit before 8am we are greeted by birds and a nice cool breeze, light cloud cover and a spectacular blue ocean. Most of the beach goers are still eating breakfast or getting the kids packed up to go so in most cases, at 8AM, we have the beach pretty much to ourselves. Now why would you put yourself and family members through an early morning wake up call? Well, one reason might be if you plan to go to a luau after your ceremony. While the luaus usually start around 1 or 2 hours before sunset, you'll have the entire day to lounge around and relax after your morning ceremony! If you're on the west side, Kapalua Bay offers a stunning beach with cliffs, deep blue ocean, turtles and Coconut Grove, a beautiful grassy area mauka of the beach where we can take you for a few shots. This "second location" adds a depth and variety to your wedding gallery that's not readily available at most other beaches. Coconut Grove is like having a second location without having to drive anywhere! Parking at Kapalua Bay can be tricky, especially in the middle of the day, but in the morning, around 7:45 or 8AM, rock star parking is almost guaranteed.

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.
Our Maui wedding planners are always being asked about floral designs. We only use one designer and that's our good friends Della and Everett at Dellables . Della creates truly fantastic designs that our couples always love. There are plenty of choices, not just in flowers but in huppa arrangements, Haku Lei's, Bouquets, even Maile Ti Leis for the men. 2 floral arch with roses That's a two arrangement bamboo arch at Merriman's in Kapalua. We cut the arrangements off after the wedding and use them as a centerpiece for the dining table. Two uses for the price of one! There's an array of material available for the arch itself and the white fabric always adds a soft counterpoint to the bamboo. The couple typically stands in front of the arch which provides another adornment to the killer views at Merriman's. Bride and bridesmaid bouquet Looking for bouquets for all the bridesmaids?
