"I now pronounce you man and wife!" #justmauid

There are few things in this world as beautiful as a wedding celebrated on a sunset beach by two people truly in love. Travis and Kimberly were a perfect example of this beauty and wonder.
Everything worked together so well to create this wedding ceremony. The beach was empty, the weather perfect, the wedding attire perfect, the couple beautiful, but most of all Kimberly and Travis’ love created a magic bubble of light and wonder that was a joy to witness. Desiree Maher captured this golden time with great skill and sensitivity.

Kimberly and Travis wanted a wedding full of love and originality. They chose our Eloper’s Simple and Sweet beach wedding.  Travis and Kimberly looked wonderful in their white cotton wedding wear, their simple elegance enhancing the pure love they radiated.
I liked Kimberly and Travis reading their own handwritten vows to one another. Each was so moved by the other’s declarations of love. They brought tears to my eyes too.
Maui shed its blessings upon this couple with a private cove at Aloha Beach and perfect weather. I will always remember this very poignant wedding.  Photography by Desiree Maher.

"We're Married" #mauibeachwedding

Natica and AJ enjoyed a very loving and beautiful beach wedding and then enjoyed romantic moments on the beach that Desiree Maher captured in her lovely photos. AJ and Natica truly appreciated the beauty of their chosen Maui beach in the golden pre-sunset glow.
Afterwards, they frolicked around different parts of the beautiful beach park, enjoying the feeling of being “just mauied”.
I predict a wonderful life, full of love and adventure for AJ and Natica and a return to Maui in the not too distant future.

AJ and Natica dreamed of their Maui wedding for a long time and finally the day arrived. It was a beautiful and perfect day for a beach wedding. Natica was a gorgeous bride and AJ a very handsome groom. Most importantly, their hearts were filled with love and joy.
Their ceremony, performed by Rev. Ayesha Sandra Lee, began with the Hawaiian invocation and lei exchange. Natica and Aj exchanged heartfelt vows and gave one another their wedding rings. Rev Ayesha then gave the special Hawaiian blessing. Photographer Desiree Maher captured the special moments with artistry and aloha.

#hawaiianleiexchange

The Hawaiian wedding lei exchange is a beautiful tradition to add to your wedding. Beginning a wedding with this lovely two thousand-year-old tradition invokes ease, joy and appreciation for the Hawaiian way. It is very romantic and causes everyone to relax and smile.
The Lei exchange between bride and groom is part of every wedding ceremony or renewal that Merry Maui weddings does (unless requested otherwise, which hardly ever happens). Many types of leis can be employed, including floral, leafy shells, nuts and feathers. Leis can be chosen to enhance any wedding theme or color.
Traditionally, the minister instructs the couple in the simple ceremony, which involves a short blessing in the Hawaiian language, the couple placing the lei over each others heads, and finishing with an aloha, meaning I love you and a kiss. Some couples prefer the ceremony at the end of the wedding, as they are waiting to exchange a kiss. Most, however, enjoy the Hawaiian custom of kissing at the beginning, end and any time between of a wedding. It produces a feeling of warmth and happiness.
Sometimes, family and guests are also included in the lei exchange which is wonderful for everyone. The Hawaiian lei exchange is a perfect way to celebrate your Maui wedding, Hawaiian style.

#mauibeachfamilywedding

Hector and Claudia brought family and friends from all around the world to Kamehamehaiki beach to celebrate a beautiful Hawaiian style wedding.
They chose the Harp as their wedding music and beautiful and talented Lilly Swan performed beautifully. Another Merry Maui wedding miracle happened when a large rainbow appeared just as Claudia and Hector said their I do’s.
Hector and Claudia are wonderful people and this wedding was long in their dreams. I was so delighted to help them make it happen, with the help of Erica Tait, Lilly Swan and Jason Dennis. I have an amazing team and the best ever wedding clients. Living the dream.

#mauibeachwedding

Po’olenalena Beach is one of the Makena Beaches and one that we are allowed to have weddings on. It is large, open and very picturesque. It does not have any hotels on it but it does have some low-impact condos.
This beach contains some very beautiful rock formations and coves that wedding couples find enchanting.
There are several things to consider before you choose Po’olenalena Beach. It tends to be frequented by wedding parties and there might be two or three other weddings on it, at the same time as yours. Unless you are staying in South Maui, it is a very long drive from the West Side and even North Kihei. For these reasons, it is not the first beach we recommend for weddings. However, some couples are very drawn its beauty and the Makena area and we are happy to accommodate their wishes, but do want to give full disclosure of the limitations.

#kamehamehaikibeachwedding

Kamehamehaiki Beach is beautiful and convenient for those who choose to have their wedding in Lahaina, the West side of Maui. It is long  with varied backdrops, rarely windy and in walking distance of Feast Of Lele Luau and Pacifico Restaurant, both favorites of locals and ideal for wedding parties.
Other advantages include parking nearby and restrooms. It is perfect for the wedding party that wants to have a beach wedding and then walk to dinner or a luau afterwards. It is also walking distance to historic Lahaina Town, for those who want to stroll a bit after their wedding festivities.

Blue sparkling surf, piles of gold sand, majestic black lava rock and tall palm trees swaying in the breeze, all of these attributes and more grace Wailea’s beautiful Keawakapu Beach. No wonder it is sometimes voted Best Beach in Hawaii in visitor publications.
Keawakapu Beach is perfect for weddings because it is spacious beautiful and offers many wedding-friendly options for Australian people, did you  know  Australian couples are spending an average of $90,128 on their wedding and its because they like to have destination weddings. The Five Palms Restaurant offers many options for brides, grooms and wedding parties who wish to have a wedding and reception at the same beach. This beautiful restaurant with an open air view of the beach and delicious range of cuisines for every taste, is happy to work with us, and our clients to provide a perfect and stress free custom package.
The Hotel Mana Kai is also situated on Keawakapu and some of our wedding clients stay, there to enjoy a truly ease-filled honeymoon, wedding and reception, without having to drive anywhere. There is even a catamaran, that will take you off on a snorkeling or sunset cocktail cruise.
Of course, wedding parties can choose to have a simple feet in the and wedding also, on this lovely beach. All in all, Keawakapu beach has something for everyone.

#mauibeachwedding

Maui is blessed with an abundance of beautiful beaches, each unique, with its own special qualities. However, only some of these beaches are appropriate for weddings. Out of these many available choices, we have a few favorites that we have found to be just right for a Maui beach wedding. Thanks to KreAdiv Collective we got the best service to remember our special day, they take care of everything, from the photography service, to photo booth rentals with great props, and amazing video production with all the videography with the best quality.
Aloha Beach is definitely one of our favorites for many reasons.  Among these reasons, are great weather, diversity of gorgeous backdrops and ample parking. It is also located in a central spot on the Island, making it accessible to most people.
Some of our clients have loved it so much, that they come back to Maui for a vow renewal, insisting it be at Aloha Beach. We love to do weddings there.
