Grand Wailea Maui Wedding | Stephanie & Jeffrey

Monday, November 29, 2010
The Grand Wailea Maui served an exquisite venue for Stephanie and Jeffrey’s wedding ceremony and reception! Early in the afternoon, before the ceremony, the couple shared their “first look” with one another; it was quite a lovely moment.  We took photos in and around the lobby and on the beach.  Their evening candlelit ceremony was beautifully decorated with hues of purples and pinks.  The group then enjoyed a lavish dinner under a canopied tent.  After dinner, they rented Tsunami’s night club at the Grand Wailea, where everyone enjoyed drinks and dancing until past midnight.  What a fun crowd!  Much thanks to Shaina Kalama for her help.  Steph and Jeff – thank you so much for having us photograph your beautiful wedding.  I wish you the very best!

Gannon’s Maui Wedding | Amanda & Marc

Monday, November 15, 2010

Gannon’s restaurant is always a great venue, and the wedding of Amanda and Marc was no exception.  With a beautifully lit ceremony on the lower lawn, a dinner reception on the upper pond, and a chance to slip away for beach portraits, we were surrounded by beauty throughout the day.  Lori Lawrence of Tropical Maui Weddings did an excellent job, once again, in making sure everything went smoothly throughout the day. Della from Dellables created a beautiful bouquet for Amanda.  Jamie Lawrence serenaded everyone which is always a lovely touch. The staff at Gannon’s provided excellent service to the guests. All in all, the entire day was wonderful.  Thanks to Shaina Kalama for always being such a big help to me. Amanda and Marc, we are so happy for the two of you! Congratulations!

A Childhood Vacation Spot Turns Wedding Venue in This Real Hawaiian Wedding

Gretchen and Justin hail from stormy Seattle, so when it came to planning their big day--they saw sunshine in their forecast. Luckily for Justin, he vacationed in Maui almost every year as a child and had ample oppotunity to scout out venues for his future "I Do's." So, when it came time to planning theirdestination wedding, the location was a no-brainer.

The couple knew there was no place else that would hold as much meaning as Maui, Hawaii. Justin and Gretchen, along with their closest friends and family, gathered at the groom's family condo at the Makena Surf. The ceremony was held on the condo's lush green grounds overlooking the ocean.

Gretchen took advantage of the local flora with colorful tropical flowers brightening up the entire ceremony and reception. The love birds also took the opportunity to frolic on the white-sand beach with the constantly changing sky as their backdrop. By keeping all the events on the same property, the newlyweds' guests were able to truely relax, have a great time and enjoy each other's company.

The reception occurred poolside and really set off a laid back, hip vibe. The wedding party was able to celebrate and party in close quarters. What would a Hawaiian wedding be without little drink umbrellas? Gretchen and Justin also took advantage of Hawaii's beautiful native flowers when it came to the decoration of their cake thanks to Dellables Flowers.

It's apparent that this couple really wanted their guests to feel as though they could unwind and set free their inner-child. Perhaps the giant, flavored snow cones paid homage to Justin's own childhood. Either way, they're just plain fun! It's obvious from the couples photos that this childhood destination is now home to a whole new collection of fond memories. We hope that Gretchen and Justin approach married life with zeal and childlike enthusiasm.
