Maui Beach Weddings Question: What about the weather?
"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 try to keep the locations near our clients' accommodations but sometimes that's not possible because either the beach is not suitable for a wedding, there's no parking or the beach might be off limits by law (Kaanapali Beach). 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.
Maui is home to 10 of the 13 "life zones" on planet earth and also host various micro-climates. The weather in Kapalua can be vastly different than the weather in Lahaina only 7 miles away. Indeed, we have seen rain at DT Fleming and none at Kapalua Bay less than 1 mile away. With smartphones giving us constant updates on everything from our favorite cat videos to the weather, many clients get concerned when they see "rain" for their local Maui forecast. We suggest not looking at the weather. Rainfall totals in most of our passing showers usually total 1/10 inch which really isn't rain, we prefer to call it liquid sunshine. The secondary beach will generally not have rain unless we are in the middle of a winter Kona storm, when the tradewinds stop and the wind comes out of the south bringing moisture with it. Fortunately this happens very infrequently.
Lahaina Baby Beach
Most of Maui's resort areas like Kihei/Wailea or Lahaina/Kaanapali are situated in dry zones that receive only 1 to 10 inches of rain per year, roughly the equivalent of high desert areas in the southwest like Santa Fe NM. Many of us are used to associating Maui with the waterfalls and lush tropical rainforest featured on movies like Jurassic Park and while these areas do exist, they are not anywhere near the major resort areas and we will not be performing any wedding ceremonies there.
Sabrina and Jesus enjoyed a beautiful late afternoon Maui wedding ceremony at Poolenalena beach in Makena with Marry Me Maui Wedding Plannes. Our good friend Charles Nahale officiated the event and played some chicken skin music on his ukulele. Poolenalena (Chang's beach) is a huge swath of sand and ocean in spectacular Makena, the "south side" of Maui. Some of the best wedding beaches in Maui are located here and we know them all! From White Rock, and Paipu, to Makena Cove, Marry Me Maui has performed hundreds of weddings at all of them. Some of these beaches are small and intimate, best for just the couple and maybe 3 guests and some are very large and wide with plenty of room for up to 30 people. As always, parking on Maui's pristine beaches is limited so please carpool!
Sabrina and Jesus had almost the entire beach to themselves on this cool and breezy Wednesday afternoon. We want to thank them for a beautiful afternoon doing what we love to do!
It's been a few years. It's cold and gray outside and time to heat things up with your significant other. So you're thinking: another lobster dinner at the local 2 star restaurant? Kick up your heels at that live music venue you haven't been to since your college days? Maybe a couples massage at that new spa you heard about on a commercial break during the last football game you watched? Nah, we have a better idea: Spice it up with a vow renewal on a Maui beach! And we have 3 reasons why you should hire a professional Maui Wedding Planner to arrange all the details for you.
Reason #1: We have the beaches! That's right, we know where the best spots are to get your vow on. Sure, you are staying at a condo that advertises "oceanfront" but is there a beach? Maybe not! Could be just a small little bit of sand that you have to share with the rest of the winter refugees from your condo. Contact your professional Maui wedding planner and ask them where to go to…
