Rachel and Marceau’s sunset beach wedding in Maui was especially fun because Rachel is from Alaska and Marceau is from France. They took their vows very seriously so we brought in a French-Mauian to be a translator. The ceremony was very deliberate and conscious, as Rachel and Marceau carefully stated their vows to one another, assisted by Lydia Tocafundi.
Afterwards, Marceau and Rachel enjoyed romantic sunset photos taken by Cathy Simone of Maui Imprints Photography.

#weddingdayforfathers

Happy Father’s Day to all you grooms who are dads, grooms who have dads, brides that have dads, etc, etc. We see many beautiful children at our weddings and feel blessed to meet them. It is a wondrous experience for children to be present at their parent’s wedding day, and to later be able to see the photos and hear the stories.
We see so many dads not only in love with their beautiful brides or wives but also so lovingly present with their children.

Brandi and Richie celebrated their wedding on our lovely South Shore, with their two daughters and two sons there to accompany them. Everyone looked wonderful. Brandi had chosen hydrangea and rose bouquets for herself and her girls and traditional Hawaiian men’s maile style leis, for the guys.
Everyone enjoyed the poignant ceremony and photos by Cathy Simone of Maui Imprint Photography. Then the family was off to a luau in West Maui.

Nohora and Rick were a most romantic and happy couple, and so pleased to celebrate their wedding on Aloha Beach. We were blessed with beautiful weather and golden light for the celebration.
Nohora had been a very inspired and thoughtful bride, communicating clearly to me the things that were important to her in a considerate manner. This communication helped us to create the wedding of Nohora and Rick’s dreams, which is always our great desire.
My team came through mightily for Nohora and Rick’s wedding. Gabriel Furumoto sang and played ukulele sweetly, for the lovers and played for their first dance on the beach. Cathy Simone of Maui Imprints Photography captured their photos lovingly and with skill.
It was a most lovely sunset wedding, and a beautiful way for Rick and Nohora to begin their marriage. They deserve every good thing that they are blessed with!
Nohora and Rick blessed us with lovely reviews, which totally gladdened all our hearts, for we aim to please.

Right from the start Ayesha’s communication was far above the other wedding coordinators I was considering, her responses afterwards remained timely and thorough. By the time we arrived in Maui I was confident that everything was on track, a big relief.

Ayesha was also the minister who performed our ceremony and we couldn’t have been more pleased! The wedding was meaningful and yet fun. She spoke a blessing over us that was very touching and well received.

In addition Ayesha recommended Cathy Simone (Maui Imprints Photography) as our photographer…she too was amazing and wonderful to work with.

Thank you from the bottom of our heart,

Rick & Nohora

Here at Merry Maui Weddings, we wish you a Memorial Day weekend blessed with family, appreciation for those who have gone before and of course abundant love.
I am thinking of all of those who have given so much, even their lives, that we may enjoy the abundant blessings of life, including, weddings. Weddings are not only a celebration of the love and commitment between a couple but also of all the family members, past and present who have guided them to the beautiful moment of marriage.
So If you have some time free, this weekend, take a bit of it to appreciate all the gifts we have been given by our ancestors, families and friends and of course, our creator.

Beautiful photography by Randy Hufford.

Sara and Matteo, with close friends, and family, including their adorable little boy came all the way from Genoa Italy to celebrate their wedding on Maui. Sara had been planning her Maui wedding for months and wanted the Maui ceremonial traditions, including, fresh flower bouquet, leis, conch shell, hula and Hawaiian ukulele/singer love songs.

Craig Gomberg provided video, Maui Imprints photo, did the photography and Gabriel Furumoto contributed beautiful Hawaiian music. Ayesha Sandra Lee was the Hawaiian style minister and hula dancer.

Our guests enjoyed a beautiful Maui beach wedding on Aloha Beach with all the accouterments. There was much celebration and dancing.

Here at Merry Maui Weddings, we have a wonderful group of caring, professional and talented Hawaiian Style ministers to perform your wedding ceremony and often, entertain you and your guests with music of the Islands.

Today, I want to introduce Reverend Kai Akin, who has been with us since 2003. A native of Maui, he blesses every wedding with his warmth, expertise and beautiful singing with Hawaiian ukulele. He also plays the conch shell. Many a Merry Maui wedding has turned into happy dancing on the beach after the ceremony because of Kai’s spirited music.

Kai is also available to play for the wedding dinner, reception or engagement party. He blesses every event with his talent and warmth.

Kristin and Thomas enjoyed a lovely wedding on a Kihei Beach Park. They brought along close friends and family and everyone was so happy and supportive of their commitment to one other. There had been some unseasonable rain that day but it cleared up, helpfully, just in time for Thomas and Kristin’s wedding.
The wedding was a very joyful and relaxed occasion for all involved. I hope Thomas and Kristin and their family are able to revisit Maui often. Cathy Simone, of Maui Imprints Photography, took many lovely shots that will remind them of their beautiful Maui wedding.

Perry and Tracy dreamed and planned their Maui Beach wedding for some time and then finally the day arrived and a lovely day it was! Tracy’s parents came along to witness their daughter’s wedding and all were impressed by the beautiful Aloha Beach Cove.
Rev. Ayesha Sandra Lee performed the wedding ceremony and Anthony Simone of Maui Imprint Photography took photos of the loving couple and new happy family.
Tracy and Perry and family needed to return to their home in Canada, but I am sure they took a little bit of Maui back with them and will return before too long, perhaps to celebrate an anniversary.

Doug, a very romantic man, asked me to book a wedding date and said,”I hope she says yes!”
“You haven’t asked her yet?” I ask and said he was going to propose on the Sunday before the Monday wedding date, while they were on Maui.
She said yes, and they enjoyed a most romantic sunset beach wedding on Aloha Beach. At Doug’s request, Kai Akin came along to serenade them with his Hawaiian ukulele and soulful love songs, while the happy couple danced in the sand.
All was well for Lisa and Doug on their Maui honeymoon and Merry Maui Wedding.
