Rev. Gabriel Kapoululani Furumoto is one of our most sought after Hawaiian Minister/Hawaiian musicians. He performs a heartfelt warm and personable Hawaiian wedding ceremony with conch shell, ukulele and lots of Aloha.
Reverend Gabriel has a gorgeous, soulful baritone voice and loves to entertain the bride and groom and their guests after the wedding and during the wedding photos. He often inspires a newlywed couple to do their first dance as husband and wife, right on the sand (and sometimes their second and third).

Rev. Gabriel has a very warm and friendly manner with the couple and guests and always brings happy Island smiles to all.

Karla and Chase had a most romantic sunset beach wedding on the lovely shores of Maui.  After their heartfelt exchange of vows, Chase and Karla frolicked in the warm surf, enjoying kisses and embraces, while the shallow waters rushed around them. Karla and Chase resembled a prince and princess of a fairy tale kingdom, which come to think of it, Maui is.  Photography by Cathy Simone.

Nancy and Rigo and their adorable baby boy celebrated their Maui wedding on a warm Spring evening on Aloha Beach. Nancy wore a beautiful traditional wedding dress and carried a lovely hand-tied bouquet. Rigo and his son wore identical beach wedding outfits for grooms.
Baby behaved very well and was part of the wedding ceremony. The minister, Rev. Ayesha Sandra Lee enjoyed babysitting the handsome little man while Cathy Simone of Maui Imprints Photography, captured some very romantic images of his parents on the warm evening shore. The family photos are very sweet. Gabriel Furumoto videotaped the wedding and I am sure they will enjoy reliving such wonderful memories in years to come.

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.
