Maui Stylized Shoot

I love Maui, my husband and I go every year in April, to get away from the gloom of Seattle and one last vacation before wedding season starts.   Two years ago, I thought it would be great to do more weddings on Maui, I was lucky enough to have one at the Sheraton in 2013, then this year I was hired by two couples for their weddings at the end of June and the beginning of July.   So I deceided it was time to do my first stylized shoot and where better?

There are two different looks for the reception table.  The first is more beach vintage with all pinks and coral, the second was more of who I am with the turouquise and coral.  I love them both!  I can not thank the professionals who helped me enough, some of which we did not met until the day of the shoot.  The deepest mahalo for your support.  Jen

M & R Wedding

Jen worked with the bride and her mom to make sure the brides dream of having her wedding at her mom’s Lopez Island residence happened.  Through issues with the house to the logistics of getting everything up to the property and the storm that blew through Friday night/Saturday AM the wedding came off without a hitch and it was beautiful!   Taylor’d Events was honored to be a part of the day!

What Type of Venue Should You Choose For Your Maui Wedding?

When you are thinking about planning a wedding on Maui there are a few things to consider. One of them being what is the best type of venue for you and your guests? Today’s post has a few guidelines that I hope will narrow down your options.

Hotels vs. Event Venues

 Hotels are the first places most couples look when planning a destination wedding. Many hotels offer packages which include all that you need for a wedding, and your reception can be held in the hotel restaurant or ballroom. Since everything is on property, hotels are a great option if you are seeking ease of use.

Event venues are great places to consider as well. Most are right on the water, offer a private area to get ready, and you can bring your own wedding professionals. Check with the venue to see if you or your caterer will need to rent tables, chairs, and linens. Most venues offer packages so you can use their preferred vendors to make your wedding special.

Beach Permits

 Nothing screams romantic more than a sunset wedding on a beach on Maui. Since all beaches are public property in Hawaii, the state has a few rules and regulations you need to follow.

Basic Requirements

Costs

The cost of a beach permit is ten cents ($.10) per square foot, with a $20 minimum which will secure 200 square feet of space on the beach.  If you require more than 200 square feet, enter the requested square footage on the permit and it will be automatically calculated.

Time Limits

The maximum length of any permit is two hours, including set-up and tear down.

Attendee Limits

The average number of participates for a beach wedding permit is nine. Most events professionals are not comfortable with an event that exceeds 25 people. This includes the photographer, officiant, and planner.

If you are planning or thinking about an event larger than 25-30 people, you should call the state at 808-587-0439 to discuss your plans prior to submitting an application.

Restricted Beaches

 The following Maui beaches are restricted:

  • Ahihi-Kinau Natural Area Reserve/La Perouse Bay
  • Ka’anapali Coast (extending from Canoe Beach on the south, to Ka’anapali Shores on the north)
