Jade and Otto had a gorgeous wedding at the Five Palms lawn on Keawakapu Beach. After the wedding, there was a spirited bouquet toss, many beautiful photo groupings, orchestrated by the photographer, Desiree Maher and also romantic shots of the bride and groom.
The Five Palms staff provided delicious cocktails and Island style appetizers for the guests while the photos were taken. Kai Akin provided virtuoso ukulele music for the guests to be entertained by as they socialized and enjoyed the delicious drinks, appetizers, the Maui beach sunset and the vision of their beloved Jade and Otto enjoying the beach and each other.
Afterwards, Otto and Jade led their guests into the Five Palms open-air restaurant for a festive dinner and wedding cake.
I want to thank Jade and Otto and their family and friends for being such joyful spirited, visionary people, who caused this wonderful celebration to happen. Also, I want to thank Desiree Maher for her lovely photos, Kai Akin for his Hawaiian-soul ukulele and The Five Palms Staff for creating the beautiful venue, food, drinks and service that made Otto and Jade’s wedding such a wonderful success.

Jade and Otto and their family and friends enjoyed a very loving and sweet wedding celebration and reception at the beautiful Five Palms lawn and spectacular Keawakapu Beach.

Otto and Jade have made their home on Maui recently and have already established, roots, careers, many friends and a love of Hawaii. Their guests were multi-cultural, from Hawaii, China and many parts of the mainland. Such mixtures of people are warmly embraced here on Maui.

Jade and Otto’s guests were also a very spirited and fun-loving group of people. They were so much fun to get to know at such a beautiful occasion. They all lovingly embraced the Hawaiian customs that were a major part of the wedding. They truly celebrated their bride and groom.

Kai Akin provided heartfelt Hawaiian music on ukulele, Desiree Maher photographed the event with shining expertise and Rev. Ayesha Sandra Lee was the minister-officiant.

This romantic wedding tale will continue in our next blog.  Until then, enjoy these wonderful pictures and have a Happy 4th of July!

Dale and Jamie were a radiant couple, so happy to be exchanging their wedding vows on beautiful Aloha Beach in the Marry month of May. They wrote their own vows and their readings would have brought tears to any eyes. They then cavorted, playfully, in the sand, while Desiree Maher captured the beauty of the couple’s love and the spectacular white-crested waves, splashing on the beach.

Current offer! Free tropical bouquets similar to this one shown above for weddings booked until September 30, 2018.

 

We decided to repost this lovely wedding blog:

Katie and William (not the ones from the House of Windsor) enjoyed a most romantic sunset wedding on beautiful Aloha Beach. They asked for the Ipu Drum and the Hawaiian Lei Exchange, both traditional Hawaiian ways to celebrate a wedding. I think Katie and William enjoyed their Hawaiian style wedding.

Certainly, love was in the air. Cathy Simone captured the lovely wedding and sunset beautifully.

#beachweddingdress

You are planning a beach wedding and a very important consideration is “what to wear?”
You want to look more beautiful than ever before. You want to take his breath away. You want the dress to look great in photos and show off your figure to its best advantage. You want it to work on the beach.
I do not get to be with most of you while you are shopping for a dress for your wedding but I can offer you some pointers, gathered from 15 years and 5,000 brides.

1) MAKE SURE YOU LOVE IT. Walk around in it. Have someone photograph you in it before you buy it. Look in every mirror. Are you sure it shows you off to your best advantage?

2) MAKE SURE ITS COMFORTABLE. If you are not comfortable, you will not look happy and carefree. You need to be able to breathe if it’s too tight. You will not be able to relax if its always falling down. If its too hot and the fabric does not breathe, you will be uncomfortable and you will sweat, not the most attractive look for a bride.

3) DOES IT TRAVEL WELL? Check your airline. Do they allow boxes or travel bags? The beach does not have dressing rooms. Choose a dress that will not wrinkle on your drive from your accommodation to the beach.

4) SHORT OR LONG? Generally speaking, short dresses work most easily for beach weddings but as you can see from the photos I have enclosed here, long dresses can be magnificent on the beach. Consider if you will have someone to carry the train if you want one, even if it is a loving fiance. Dragging your train will result in twigs, sand, pinecones, small animals, dead fish, etc. being part of your entourage.

5) FIT, FIT, FIT. Your dress must fit well, not just the day you try it on but on your wedding day. You may gain or lose weight after your selection, so don’t buy it too much in advice. You will not be comfortable if it does not fit perfectly.

6)Comfort really is so important, that I am repeating this item. I assure you, you will be happier, more beautiful, and more photogenic in a 50 dollar beach dress that fits and is comfortable, than in a 10,000 dollar couture dress, that does not fit or makes you uncomfortable in any way. Comfortable does not have to mean shorts and a t-shirt. Comfortable can be elegant and is essential for beauty and sexiness.

7) WHAT IS YOUR GROOM WEARING? If your groom insists on shorts and a polo shirt as his ultimate wedding outfit you may want to reconsider a Royal Princess, wedding gown with a ten foot train and veil. It just looks strange in the photos, like Beauty and the parking lot attendant. If you want to go for it, and you can still be very happy but think about the enlarged, framed wedding photo over your fireplace, and your grandchildren gazing at your wedding album.
Enough said. Be happy and wear your hearts on your sleeve and everything will be fine.

#mauigardenwedding

A beautiful bride, named Cinderella, in a white fairytale dress, married a handsome groom named Kenneth in a white gazebo at a magical garden full of flowers and exotic trees. They were attended by two lovely daughters and everything was most wonderful. That is the true story of the wedding of Kenneth and Cinderella.
Cinderella and Kenneth came to Maui for their dream wedding and celebrated it on the slopes of Mount Haleakala, in the beautiful Kula gardens. Millions of blossoms bloomed to celebrate their nuptials and all was well. Everything conspired to create a magnificent wedding. Reverend Ayesha Sandra Lee officiated the ceremony and Cathy Simone, of Maui Imprints Photography, captured the images of romance and beauty.

Liz and Kyle planned such a beautiful Maui beach wedding, complete with a violin player, Rona Landrigan, who created the perfect romantic ambiance. Kyle, Liz, Ayesha Sandra Lee, as a minister, Cathy Simon, as photographer and Rona stood on top of a beach promontory and created a perfect and beautiful wedding ceremony, to celebrate the love and commitment of Liz and Kyle, a very lovely couple.
After the ceremony, Liz and Kyle, husband and wife, posed playfully on the beach for many beautiful moments captured by Cathy as Rona followed them with her violin enhancing the magic of that beautiful wedding sunset.
