#mauitropicalplantationwedding

Aloha friends,
This is the season when many brides and grooms plan a wedding using one of Maui’s gorgeous private sites. So I am doing a series of weddings featuring these sites. Today is our beloved Maui Tropical Plantation.

Brian and Alisha selected the Maui Tropical Plantation in Waikapu, Maui for their wedding because they felt it “looks like Hawaii”, which of course it is. The plantation is full of lush tropical vegetation, a pretty pond, a white gazebo and many accoutrements for a romantic and easy wedding.

Alisha, Brian and their children were able to dress and prepare for their wedding in comfortable air-conditioned dressing rooms, while Cathy Simone of Maui Imprints Photography captured memorable moments. The Tropical Plantation staff were on hand for any last minute needs.

Meanwhile, Merry Maui Wedding professionals were putting all the last details into place. Craig Gomberg adjusted the cameras and miked the minister and musician. Rev. Ayesha Sandra Lee reviewed the ceremony notes and oversaw the wedding flowers. Maui Wedding Cakes placed a very pretty cake, custom made to the bride’s design, in readiness for the after wedding celebration, on a festive round table. Then everything was good to go!

Alisha, Brian and children, all gorgeous and ready for their wedding strolled down the lush tropical garden path to the white gazebo by the pond, the site of their Maui Tropical Plantation wedding. The photographers: Craig Gomberg on video, and Cathy Simone on camera. The Hawaiian musician, Gabriel Furumoto, on ukulele and voice and Reverend Ayesha Sandra Lee, wedding officiant, were awaiting with great expectation.

The wedding progressed beautifully and Alisha and Brian were married! They danced their first song together as husband and wife, to the beautiful voice and instrument of Rev. Gabriel.

Then it was time for family congratulations and celebration. Alisha and Brian cut their beautiful custom designed wedding cake and fed each other as a fitting tribute to their love and care.

Many beautiful photos were taken, by Cathy Simone of Maui Imprints Photography, of the couple and family in the lush, tropical setting of the Plantation with the West Maui Mountains standing sentinel.
Finally, it was time for the happy family to “hele on” to their reception dinner. We wish the best to Alisha and Brian and family.

#mauiweddingbouquet


Bouquets are back.(Not that they ever really left) Suddenly brides are ordering bouquets for themselves, and moms and and bridesmaids etc. I am glad because the more flowers at a wedding, the better, as far as I am concerned and a bride with a bouquet is a lovely archetypal image of grace and sweetness.
A bouquet can be anything from a few flowers tied together with a ribbon to a huge, wired engineering masterpiece of flowers that could adorn a Rose Parade float. My brides can order whatever they want if they give us enough time and have the budget.
However, Merry Maui Weddings specializes in colorful, original and affordable bouquets concocted from our plethora of fresh and fragrant tropical flowers. We like to add a few mainland favorites such as roses and lilies too, if they are in season. Pictured are some examples of local bouquets. Ask us what we can do for you:)

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 of Maui Imprints Photography captured the lovely wedding and sunset beautifully.

Conrad and Lua carefully planned their Maui wedding for some time and then brought Merry Maui Weddings on board. We were so happy to help bring their dreams into reality. Maui blessed them with a gorgeous sunset on Aloha Beach on South Maui. The tide was low, allowing Conrad and Lua to play amongst the dramatic lava rocks, which were a dramatic backdrop to their beauty and passionate love.
Wellknown Hawaiian photographer, Randy Hufford captured their beautiful wedding masterfully.

Melissa and Victor were sweethearts in school and then separated by the tides of life. Years went by and then one fine day they were happily reunited. They have been planning their dream Maui beach wedding for a long time and finally, the blessed day arrived. I have never seen a couple more joyfully in love than Victor and Melissa and Maui joined in wishing them well by providing a glorious day with perfect weather and tides and not a single soul on the beach, besides the wedding party. Even the turtles came to celebrate.
The very talented Zan Mantz came to gift the couple with his guitar, voice, original love songs and flute performances, including Hawaiian nose flute.
The famous photographer, Randy Hufford, known the world over for his beautiful and brilliant photography captured the beauty of their love and the splendid day artfully.
Rev. Ayesha Sandra Lee was honoured to provide the wedding ceremony for the loving couple.
It was a fine day in Paradise.

Joyce and Mike brought their family to Kahana, Maui to stay in one of the lovely condominium complexes that allows its guests to use their beautiful gardens for their weddings.
Rev. Kai Akin officiated at the Hawaiian style wedding that was enjoyed immensely by all. He gave a ceremony that was personal, moving and culturally relevant to the couple in love.
Mike and Joyce wanted beautiful photos of their family so Photographer Desiree Maher took a very nice collection of both wedding and family photos on the beach and in the garden.
A wonderful time was enjoyed by all.

#GannonsWeddingArch

In part one, we saw Francesca and Ashton’s beautiful family wedding on Gannon’s lawn in Wailea.
After the greetings and photos, the newlyweds and guests promenaded to the reception waiting for them at Gannon’s restaurant, in the open air, lit by sunset flaming colors and torches. The tables were decorated with brilliant tropical flowers, that echoed the sunset colours. A delicious dinner was served.
Ashton and Francesca enjoyed, a ceremonial wedding toast and a cake cutting, while their family and friends cheered them on. it was a gorgeous reception and a day, that none present would forget. Cathy Simone of Maui Imprints Photography lovingly captured it all.

Ashton and Francesca enjoyed a gorgeous Maui wedding with their Mainland and Maui family members. The wedding and reception took place at Gannon’s restaurant in Wailea, which features a lovely lawn with a breathtaking view of the Wailea coast.
Francesca and Ashton were blessed by Maui family, that did exquisite local flower arrangements. Their florist made the most beautiful arch florals that I have ever seen. Two handsome young men, from their family, contributed ukulele wedding music.
Francesca and Ashton are a gorgeous couple and their love illuminated the Maui sunset evening.
Reverend Ayesha Sandra Lee performed the ceremony and Cathy Simone of Maui Imprints Photography captured the beautiful images masterfully.

Amanda and Kirk experienced a beautiful and joy-filled wedding in Beautiful Kula Gardens in Maui. Their love and enthusiasm were very captivating and every photo by Desiree Maher captured these wonderful qualities.  Marcie Guendel was the bride’s excellent hair stylist.
Kirk and Amanda’s family and friends entered into the spirit of this merry wedding fully. The weather in the gardens was perfect. All in all, it was one of those very special and gorgeous weddings that were a source of joy and inspiration for everyone involved.
If you missed it last week, please see part one of Amanda and Kirk’s wedding.
