Destination wedding in Maui!

22 01 2010

Who doesn’t want to have their wedding on a beach in Hawaii? I dare you to find me someone!  Miles of white sandy beaches everywhere you turn.  Mountains adorned with luscious greenery and brightly colored flowers… Hawaii has it all!  My personal favorite location is Maui.  To be honest I am completely partial – because that is where I was a destination bride!  I was married about 4 years ago on Makena Cove beach.  It’s a very popular location for destination weddings (though I did not know it was so popular at the time) – mostly because of it’s picture perfect scenery.  Here is a photo of myself and my husband!

Amber and Paul seal their vows!

Makena Cove (sometimes called Secret Cove), is just off the beaten path on the southern shore of Maui.  It makes for a beautiful and truly intimate wedding location for any bride and groom.  While this location is highly sought after, we actually found it by accident!  Since 2005 when I was married, the laws about weddings on beaches have actually changed.  So make sure if you are planning your destination wedding in Maui, you research the laws ahead of time and have the proper permits! Here is a link to a list of regulations that are currently in place.  Also make sure you bring your favorite destination wedding photographer and videographer!  We are well traveled, practiced in the art of destination wedding photography and videography, and would love to embark on your adventure with you.  E-mail us at destinationphotoandvideo@gmail.com to get started.  See you next time!





Wedding destination location idea – Arizona!

Recently I had the chance to travel to Arizona.  What a gorgeous state!  Everywhere you look there is beauty, whether it’s mountain ranges, cactus, wild flowers…  If you’re a lover of nature – you’re a lover of Arizona!

While staying at Kohl’s Ranch in Payson, AZ – I stumbled upon this adorable little wedding chapel:

What a fantastic place for a destination wedding! The lodge is beautiful.  They are fully equipped to host any size wedding, whether if be just the two of you, or all of your family and friends!  You can download their “wedding packet” here – which includes information on catering, different locations on the property you can get married at, guests accommodations and more.

The best part of all, is that there is SO much to do and see in Arizona… so why not stay for your honeymoon?  Click here to see my Arizona Parks album on Flickr!
