gail and virgil :: the makena golf and beach resort
La Makena Vista, the latest wedding venue here on Maui is hosted by the new Makena Beach and Golf Resort.
These outstanding photographs from Anna Kim Photography really show how fantastic this venue is.
Of course the Team that organized to pull this off was wonderful to work with:
Organizer & Visionary: Genevieve De Rego ~ Wedding & Catering Service Manager for the resort.
The exquisite floral arrangements: Dellables by Della ~ This woman’s flower arrangements are art. They speak for themselves.
Make up: Jessica Waite ~ Maui’s top make-up artist. This girl has such a lively personality. We’ll be working closely in the future.
Hair: Dan Sanchez ~ I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for him as he did wonders for my hair on my own wedding day. The man is brilliant.
Models: The gorgeous Reba & Clifton Dodge.
It was located at their new WEDDING VENUE called The Vista. The name says it all, with spectacular sunset views of Molokini, Lanai, Molokai and the West Maui mountains.
The predictable Maui weather was its usual perfect. A light breeze added some flow to our crystal curtain and to the fabric.
The models were actually celebrating their one year anniversary so this was a treat for them as well.
*** Stay tuned for more of the photo shoot tomorrow, when we get REAL CREATIVE

They hosted a wonderful introduction party tonight to local Maui vendors and EVERYONE was impressed. The Resort Formally Known as Prince has reinvented themselves with fresh talent and established beauty to create a new venue for Weddings on Maui. Check it out!
Give Genevieve DeRego a shout out to arrange this competitively price venue!
This beautiful white and yellow tropical bamboo arch was erected for the new Makena Beach and Golf Resort.
The resort formally known as Prince has rebranded into a newly management venue that has some of Maui's best service and views!
Leo Tai runs their Wedding Dream department. This particular bride had Hawaiian drums, song and dance accompany her entrance. Not sure how Leo arranged for the perfect sunset, but all together it made for quite an event!
Personally, I can attest to the fantastic beach and swimming available just on the other side of this arch.....if you don't mind warm waves, friendly sea turtles and frisky whales.
Truly an experience even a long time islander finds exhilarating.
