Why Do So Many Happy Couples
Choose to Have Maui Weddings?



Let me brag a little about Maui. If you've been here before, you know what I mean. You'll discover how incredible Maui is soon after your feet first set down on this Hawaiian island. For years the locals have declared, "Maui is the best." And the island has consistently been voted "world's best island" by those visiting here. I don't think there's any place on earth more romantic.


It's not just the beauty. Or the incredible weather. It's everything about Maui, including the tropical breezes and the fragrant aroma of the flowers growing on so many bushes and trees... It's the fact you can see the ocean or a beautiful beach almost everywhere you go.


And it all cries out . . . saying love and romance. "Will you Maui me?" So many couples choose these golden shores to tie the knot for their Maui wedding, because this just happens to be the most incredible place on earth to get married.

 

"We will never forget the incredible sunset on the water with the mountains of Maui surrounding us. Your presence at the event was more calming than you could know. I knew instantly that I need not worry about anything as you had all things handled. I can't thank you enough for your assistance with one of the happiest days of my life."
    
-- Jesse and Dee McLean


We have the best beaches in all of Hawaii for sunset beach weddings. (More weddings take place on Maui than on all of the other islands combined).


The weather is better here and the crowds smaller than on the other Hawaiian islands. It's an incredible location for a beach wedding ceremony because the best beaches face into the setting sun.

 

"Everything was perfect. We wouldn't have changed one thing. Thank you for making our dream wedding a dream come true!"
-- Erik and Krystal Mason

 

I can't tell you how many times my couples have said to me, "Everything was perfect!" They tell me how their Maui wedding exceeded their expectations. But don't take my word for it. 

 

"The wedding ceremony was awesome and I still get all choked up every time I watch the video. The pictures are gorgeous, the music was beautiful, and the whole day was incredible. We literally didn't have to do anything but show up to celebrate our special day. The makeup artist and hairstylist did a fantastic job. I can't say enough about how pleasant our experience was dealing with you both. You took all the stress out of what other brides have said is the most nerve racking day of their lives."

Our Wedding Team Will
Take Care Of All the Details


We make certain all of the many details of your Maui wedding are taken care of so that you can concentrate on each other. We don't want you to have to worry about anything. The major thing you'll need to do is show up with your wedding license — and enjoy your intimate, romantic moment at sunset.


You'll need a wedding license. I'll set up your license appointment with the agent nearest to where you're staying and give you detailed directions on how to reach her.


You'll need a beach access permit. If you are having a Maui beach wedding, we will take care of obtaining the Maui beach wedding permit for you.

 

Are you bringing your wedding dress? You can ship it ahead of time to one of our team members, and I'll have her press it for you. She can even help you get it on if you don't have any attendants.


"Your recommendations were flawless. We didn't have to do anything except show up. Our friends and family raved over our photos and videos. We were extremely pleased with both. Thanks again for everything."
     -
- Dan and Rachel Roberts

 

When you call, I will be happy to answer all your questions. It doesn't matter how simple the question, I'm here to serve you. Together we'll create a beautiful wedding here in paradise.


Romantic Tips For
Maui Weddings

 

Let me share with you some of the secrets our couples use to have truly romantic Maui weddings. Here are some of my tips:

Get married at the beginning of your stay. Why? You don't want to spend your entire stay worrying about your wedding. Get married early, then enjoy your honeymoon without any stress.

 

Be careful not to get sunburned before your wedding! Many couples don't realize how quickly they can get burned here. Be extra careful about exposure to the sun when you get to Maui, even driving around in a convertible can burn you badly.

 

You might want to keep your wedding small. The bigger the wedding the more likely that you'll be stressed. Couples who come by themselves or with just a few close friends or family seem to enjoy their moment the most.


"We wanted to thank you for the lovely wedding ceremony you arranged for us on August 29th. I can't say enough how beautiful it was. It was completely organized and no small detail was overlooked. I knew that once we spoke and sent e-mails back and forth this would be a perfect day and it certainly was. I never once was concerned about any detail. Everything just fell into place perfectly. Jim and I felt like the entire ceremony was totally catered to just the two of us."
     -- Jim and Chris Watson

 

Pamper yourself with a hair and make-up specialist. You won't have to go into a parlor, I'll send one of my expert beauticians right to your condo or hotel room and she'll create just the right up-do for your beach or garden wedding. Your fiancé will be speechless when he sees how gorgeous you look.


Dress up in full white wedding gown and formal tuxedo. You can't believe how awesome you will look and feel decked out to the nines, in front of a beautiful Maui beach sunset. Although not all couples dress formally, believe me, it makes the whole occasion so much more special and romantic when you do.


Increase the romance by releasing butterflies at your wedding. We know how to make certain they won't fly off quickly. They'll "hang around" for a while, landing on your fingers and your flowers and on your dress . . . adding to the enchantment of the moment. 


Increase the romance with the experience of releasing two (or more) white wedding doves. You'll treasure for a lifetime the image of them flying off as you release them into the sunset.


Choose a decent size photography package. Digital photography comes as standard in all of our Maui Wedding Packages. All of the wedding photography on this website was taken by our own staff. So you can tell about the quality of our images.

 

 

"We were so thrilled with the pictures and ceremony! Mark and I came home to Oahu and he returned to Iraq about a week ago. Thanks to you guys, we have beautiful pictures and memories to share with our loved ones and help the two of us make it through the remainder of his deployment!" 
    
-- Mark and Katie Barton


 

Have the musician of your choice serenade you at your Maui wedding. What more romantic way is there to begin your new life together? Well, let me tell you of one more thing . . .

 

Pamper yourselves with an elegant dinner overlooking the beach, AND have a musician there to serenade you as you dine. This will probably be the only time in your life when you will have a gourmet meal served to you on the grass overlooking the beach and lit by tiki torches. 

 

These are just some of the many little things that you can do to enhance your Maui wedding and make it oh so romantic and fun. If you have any questions about any of my suggestions, just ask when you call.

 

"We will never forget all of the lovely things that you did to make our wedding so beautiful and memorable. We are  happy to have you add us to your list of satisfied and grateful customers"
     -- Dave and Lisa Jablonski

 

Great Locations For
Maui Weddings


Many couples would rather have an alternate location than on a Maui beach. If you're thinking about a tropical garden ceremony, a waterfall, or having one of our quaint Maui weddings in a chapel I can help you achieve your vision.


Let me share with you some of my secrets for choosing the best sites for our Maui weddings:


If you want a luxurious garden site, there are a couple of different sites to choose from, on different parts of the island...


If you prefer a Maui wedding chapel or church, I can recommend a several different locations, including quaint old churches and beautiful wedding chapels. I have something for you depending upon your preferences.

 

I also have a great Maui waterfall site that many couples love. But it is right for every couple (which I'll explain when you call).


Many of my couples don't know when they call me exactly what they want. More often then not, my couples depend upon me to tell them which sites and which beaches are the best. So when you call I'll give you all of your options. Feel free to ask me any question when you call. 

 


 

My Secret Maui Beach Wedding
Weather Plan


Many couples worry about the weather, especially in winter. They often share their concerns with me on the phone, because they're coming from an area where weather is almost always an issue, or they've heard a weather forecast that includes rain. Let me share with you just some of my "secrets" in dealing with the weather:


I'll help you choose the right Maui wedding location. Maui has definite weather patterns. It often rains on the north side of the island, while it is sunny on the south side.


I choose the best beach locations based upon weather. I know which ones are most likely to have great weather. And where there will be less bathers.

 

I also have beaches I go to when the wind is high. Several of these are sheltered so that wind is less of a factor.


We always have a good back-up beach nearby. If it is raining at one beach, it is often dry at a beach nearby. If one beach is crowded with weddings, I have several great beaches to fall back on.


My my 15 years planning Maui weddings, I have only had two or three weddings when one was rained out. And even in those rare cases, the next day dawned bright and gorgeous. By waiting just one day — those couples had a perfect Maui wedding. We can almost always work around bad weather, so you don't need to worry it.


Larger Maui Weddings


When you have a larger Maui wedding, you'll likely face a whole different set of issues. Yes, we charge more to coordinate larger weddings, but you'll get all of my years of experience when I'm your wedding planner. The state is now limiting and regulating larger weddings more tightly when it comes to access to our Maui beaches. I'll make certain that your dream wedding won't encounter problems with the state.


Will you be a secluded bride? There are unique challenges for secluded brides at beach weddings. I know how to work through those issues so your entrance becomes a truly magical moment.

 

Do you have bridesmaids and groomsmen? Brides often need help with placement and logistics for their attendants. I'll guide you through setting up where your attendants will stand and how they'll enter. I will also make certain that you are at the right spot so that your Maui wedding photographer and videographer can get great images.


The County requires a permit for many larger Maui weddings. If you need one, I will obtain that permit for you (or show you locations where you won't need one).


Have the "perfect" large Maui wedding location in mind? Secluded and private, right on the ocean? I have several sites which many other coordinators don't know about.


 

Will your larger party need to arrive safely at the wedding site? I can offer a range of great transportation solutions for you, that will save you money.


Do you want to attend a Maui luau with your guests? I can tell you which is the best... Or even help you create your own private luau at a private location.


If you are planning a reception, I have everything you need: DJs, special music, hula dancers, catering, PA systems, lighting, fire-knife dancers, conch shell blowers... and so much more.


Will you need a caterer? My favorite Maui wedding caterer is very affordable, and he offers exceptional service. And (unlike many other vendors) he will give you a solid price.


"I've had people tell me these are the best wedding photos they've ever seen - so kudos to you both! Everything went so well and I am amazed to this day how easy our wedding was (and that's because you guys did all the work!) it really made it all the more relaxing for both of us."
-- Aaron and Abby Fernaays

 

Because Hawaii is so far away, you will definitely need help pulling together all of the details for your larger, customized Maui wedding. My job is to make it come off like a dream. I'll help you work through everything so you won't forget any of the important details.


Maui Weddings
On A Tight Budget


Let me assure you, tying the knot here in paradise offers real value over almost any mainland wedding. And you won't have to hop on a jet after the service to get away to a remote destination. You'll already be in paradise. One of the hardest things about coming to Hawaii will be deciding what fun Maui activities you will want to enjoy.


Get married on the beach. In Hawaii all of the beaches are free, so you won't have to pay any site fees.


Get a car rental through us cheap! Unless you don't plan on going anywhere, you'll want to rent a car on Maui. There is a lot to see on our island and an economy car rental will save you money and get you around. Maui Me offers some of the best car rental rates on the islands thru Avis and Budget. Have the convenience of picking up your car right at the airport while taking advantage of our travel agent discounted rates!

 

If you can only stay a few days... choose at least a four night package at most resorts and you can get the fifth night free. I know which properties this will work for.


Stay in a condo instead of a hotel room. Why? Because condos are less expensive, offer a full kitchen, a separate bedroom and most are still located in great spots with awesome ocean views. You get more bang for your buck.


Eat breakfast in your condo. Eating out every single meal can get expensive. If you are staying in a condo you will have a full kitchen with a microwave and a coffee maker. You can eat breakfast on your lanai — and save money.


Pack some lunches at in your condo. Because condos have a refrigerator, you can make your own lunches for any of your honeymoon day trips.


 

Stay on the south side of the island. Why? Because West Maui is getting more and more crowded with traffic congestion. This could impact your getting to or from your South Maui wedding location (or make it difficult for us to reach you if you are getting married on the West Side). 


Maui Wedding Packages
With Prices Clearly Listed


Our prices are reasonable and affordable.  If you've checked our competition, you see that we provide great Maui weddings at affordable rates. We believe that the quality service we provide can be offered at reasonable rates.

"You did a wonderful job in helping our dream come true. Our minister did an excellent ceremony with us and with the entire wedding as well. The photos were SUPERB!!!!!"
-Carlos and Denise Mariso

 

If you order a custom wedding or have a large group with a lot of special requests, you should use our ala carte menu and not the packages. Because custom weddings are so much more time-consuming, we have to offer a more flexible price scale depending on so what you want so that we can adequately service all of your Maui wedding needs.


You can book your Maui wedding day on our schedule by giving us your deposit. Our deposit is a non-refundable $208.35 fee (that is taken off the price of your wedding), and it secures your date. (The deposit for larger custom weddings is more).
