Chang's Beach, AKA Poolenalena beach, lies on the edge of Wailea at the start of Makena. This wide swath of white sandy beach provides a beautiful backdrop for our Maui wedding couples and a great location for swimming, body boarding or just checking out the ubiquitous green sea turtles. Mornings here are crisp, the sand is still cool but the sun will rise quickly and even in the winter it can be quite warm here so we try to start our Morning Maui Beach Weddings early! There are no Hotels on Poolenalena beach so there's usually plenty of room for us to find some privacy for our clients. If it is crowded, we can just walk the path to the north and try our luck at "Secrets" or Paipu beach, another long white sandy beach with spectacular scenery, lava rock outcroppings and coconut palm trees. Rosiel and Charles booked our Morning Special Wedding package for their ceremony at Poolenalena a few weeks ago. Their love and dedication for each other was obvious and we were honored to be privileged to host and photograph their nuptials. A small group of family was present, as is typical with Maui destination weddings. There are thousands of elopements here every year and usually the couple comes by themselves or with a few close friends and family members. A Maui destination wedding is the perfect excuse to combine your wedding and honeymoon, especially if you don't want to bust your budget with a huge wedding back home. Finding a reputable Maui wedding planner isn't hard (just click on that link). Just give them a call and they will do the rest! So thanks Rosie and Charles, it was a pleasure working with you and your wonderful family!

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.
