#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.

#keawakapubeachmaui

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.

Linda and Miquel had a long-standing dream of bringing their children to celebrate a Maui beach wedding and today they realized that dream on Maui’s Kamehamehaiki Beach. Miquel, Linda and their children were beautiful in peach and white, standing on the golden sand in the sunlight as they recited their wedding vows.
Linda and Miquel enjoyed their post-wedding photography, along with their very well behaved children. The children were allowed to leave early, so as to not miss any of the Feast at Lele’s luau festivities. Miquel and Linda had their romantic sunset wedding photos taken by Desiree Maher and then joined their children for a very joyful Hawaiian celebration.

Pictured are a wedding cake, custom decorated by our favorite cake chef, Maui Weddings Cakes, and a beautiful arch with drapery and floral design.

And of course, Merry Maui Weddings offers exquisite photography as these photos by Cathy Simone are an excellent example of.

#mauiweddingleis Beautiful ti leaf leis

 

One of the best things about a Maui wedding is the lei exchange.  Merry Maui Weddings has leis in every package.  The exchange of leis between the bride and groom is a beautiful and poignant celebration.  The wedding couple will often give leis to their loved ones either before the ceremony or as part of it.  Our Maui wedding ministers guide the bride and groom through these lovely ceremonies.

There are so many gorgeous leis to choose from and we are happy to help.

A wedding is meant to be a celebration of love, but many weddings begin in an atmosphere of anxiety and tension. Something has gone wrong. The limo was late or the pink roses were too orangey or the breeze is scattering the petals all over the sand… something not perfect.

The groom and best man and I are awaiting the processional that will bring the bride to his side. He is smiling at first, but time is passing – no bride arrives. I glance at my watch – seven minutes late, not so bad. I regard the groom. He seems to be in a state of high anxiety. I say, “It’s okay, she will be here soon.” The groom shuffles his feet in the sand. Sweat is running down his face. He looks down and says, “She has been so nervous about this wedding. I can’t wait ‘til it’s over.”

His cellphone rings. He pulls it out of his pocket and looks at it as though it’s a man-eating tiger, about to pounce. “It’s her,” he says. “Answer it,” I say calmly. “Hey, babe…” he says in a squeaky, strained voice, “you comin’ down here? Okay, okay, see ‘ya soon.” He puts away the phone. “She’s coming. Her maid of honor forgot the ‘something borrowed’ garter in her hotel room. They’ll be right here.”

“Great,” I say. “Look at that gorgeous blue sky. “Yeah,” he mutters. “It’s been hard trying to get it all together.” He can’t see the sky. The conch blows. The harp player begins “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” The bridal procession comes down the petal path and soon the bride is standing beside her groom. They look at each other, nervously. They try to smile and the ceremony begins. She doesn’t seem to realize it, but she is gorgeous.

After a few minutes, we get to the part where I say, “A marriage has moods and seasons.” They look at each other and one of them begins to laugh, then the other. The ice breaks. They clasp hands. They both realize they have already passed one of the tests of married love. Planning a wedding was stressful, probably much more than it needed to be. But, they made it. They saw each other’s dark side, but they’re saying “yes” to love!

#mauiwhitegazebo

Sylvia and Larry came from Victoria, PE1 to celebrate their Valentine’s Day wedding on a Maui Beach. However, Valentines Day is in the middle of our rainy season (we do have to have some rain, friends, to keep the island green and covered with fruits and flowers) and Cupid decided to be a little naughty. On the morning of February 14, rain was indeed falling on the Kihei beaches where the wedding was planned to take place.
Fortunately, Larry and Sylvia are very resilient, patient and undefeatable. Together we decided to pursue the option of relocating to a garden wedding on the slopes of Mount Haleakala, where the sun was shining brightly. Having been watching the weather forecasts, I had already reserved a beautiful garden location with a covered gazebo, just in case. We all know how hard it can be to Book your wedding party and it this case it wasn’t the exception, we had to find a last minute reception because of the weather.
Sylvia and Larry, good-naturedly, drove up the mountain. Unfortunately, the rain followed them. We were standing in the reception room, musing over this development, when the videographer called. He had been unavoidably delayed in a traffic situation. I will always remember the grace and patience Larry and Sylvia displayed in these circumstances with much gratitude.
Photographer, Steve Slater, was also my hero and took some pre-wedding photos with the lovely couple under umbrellas and walking through the lush gardens in the soft rain. The photos turned out to be very romantic.
All of a sudden, the sun came out, the videographer arrived, and Sylvia and Larry enjoyed a very loving wedding celebration.
My generous videographer, Craig Gomberg, treated the couple to a complimentary beach shoot afterwards, because the sun came out on the beach too!
It was a wonderful Valentines wedding, thanks to my amazing clients and photographers.

Review:
Aloha Ayesha
As we leave lovely Kihei and head to Haiku for a couple of days, we would like to take a moment and say thank you for coordinating our special day and hanging in there with us despite the rain and other mishaps! You, your photographer and videographer went out of your way to make our day turn out perfectly. Canada has a reputation of kind people but we can honestly say it has met its match in Hawaii… Thank you again and we hope someday to be back in your beautiful Maui. Take care!
Larry and Sylvia

Blessings on all of you lovers and friends and fiances and newlyweds and family members. Celebrate love today.

It does not have to be a fancy dinner in a restaurant. Make your loved one coffee and give it with a kiss, smile at the people you meet today. Encourage everyone.

#mauibeachwedding

If you have a special someone, give them a flower, a card, take them or make them a special meal. It could be lobster and champagne or it could be macaroni and cheese. Just be sweet.
Celebrate and appreciate love wherever you are lucky enough to have it.
