Connie and Eric showed us how to truly embrace the sentiment that rain is a blessing. No amount of gray skies could keep these two from smiling and enjoying each moment of their wedding ceremony. Like a princess being presented to her prince, Connie was wearing a stunning dress tied in the back by white ribbon. Eric was equally ready for the occasion as he awaited his bride in a handsome and classic suit.
There could have been little better way to embrace the rain. Everyone present was in good spirits and made the most of the occasion. True love can shine through any darkness, and it was truly a pleasure to capture these special moments. Thank you Connie & Eric, and congratulations!
A wedding is a one-of-a-kind event and should truly reflect the personality of the couple to be married. For this reason, many partners now opt to plan a destination wedding in Maui, as opposed to a more conventional ceremony. By doing so, the happy couple finds they can combine a vacation with their big day and allow others to enjoy the festivities fully. However, what should every couple know before planning a wedding of this type to ensure no problems arise before, during, or after the ceremony?
First and foremost, a location in Maui must be selected. Obviously, this place should be one the couple has always wished to visit or one they have been to in the past and remember fondly. Nevertheless, the partners must ensure there is a venue in the area that can hold the guest list and one that is suitable for all guests. A small bar isn't appropriate for children, for example, even if this is where the couple first met and wishes to hold the ceremony. Fortunately, most couples will find they can hold the wedding in their dream location with only a few slight modifications if needed. Be prepared to visit the venue multiple times also to ensure everything will move smoothly on the day of the event.
Plan on making use of local vendors for the event. Don’t try to have items shipped in when they are available near the venue. By incorporating native items into the ceremony, couples find they can truly make the day special while providing their guests with some added enjoyment. It’s not every day a person gets to see artisan crafts or textile patterns native to the area where the wedding is being held. Not only will this make the day one-of-a-kind, it also provides a conversation opener for individuals who don’t know each other, which is sure to be appreciated.
Use a Wedding Coordinator
Don’t hesitate to call on the professionals to help make the day special. The coordinator will handle many of the tasks for the couple, allowing the bride and groom to visit and make decisions quickly and easily. Several vendors offer this option in Maui.
Ask about the services included, such as floral arrangements and guest accommodations. Furthermore, be sure to ask how they bring the guests together before the event so everyone gets to know each other. Finally, ask the coordinator if they take any steps to make the guests feel special during their stay. They have come a long way to share in the couple’s big day and should be recognized for doing so.
If planning a destination wedding seems overwhelming even with the help of a wedding coordinator, elope. Our Elopement Photography packages start at only $400 and may be the perfect option for a bride and groom. It is their special day and it should be everything they dream of. For some, this will be an elopement and one that lets them start married life immediately. We work with every couple to find what is best for their needs.
The sun was shining and all was bright and good for April and AJ's island wedding ceremony. The scene was set with no lack of charm, and this fun and charming couple were presented perfectly for each other. April looked beautiful with her delicate white dress and floral hair piece, and AJ looked suave in his white button-down shirt.
It certainly was a day to remember, from the ceremony to the sunset. We enjoyed taking part in this momentous occasion, and we are sure that this is only the beginning of a beautiful marriage. Thank you April and AJ for letting us be a part of your special day.
Erika and Raymond had a dream wedding in the island paradise that we call Maui. The gorgeous bride did not miss a single detail with her white dress and its delicate lace patterns. Her handsome groom shone with joy and looked the part in his tan vest. It was abundantly clear that these two cherish each other and have a special love.
From a special moment between the newlyweds in a lush tropical garden, to a fun and romantic walk along the beach, we thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this special day. We wish Erika and Raymond all the best in this new journey and are thankful to have been a part in celebrating this new chapter.
Nicole and Kevin had a beautiful wedding with the perfect touch of fun. The clouds only brought out the vibrant colors of the land and the pastel hues of the mountains and ocean. It could not have been set more perfectly. Nicole was radiantly dressed in an elegant strapless dress for her handsome groom, Kevin. We also loved the special custom sunglasses that they donned after the ceremony.
We could not have enjoyed working with this couple more. Their genuine affections for each other far outshone any clouds that were in the sky. Thank you, Nicole and Kevin, for letting us be a part of this momentous occasion!
