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.
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? We can do that. Check out the fresh designs above for all the special
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.
