    Hairdresser & Makeup Artist

    For my make-up I used Jessica Waite. I felt very calm with Jessica, with all the chaos going on, it felt like I was taking a 45 minute break from everything when I was getting my make-up done. I loved the way my make-up came out and Jessica is truly an artist. She also did my mother-in-laws make-up, she loved it! Also after seeing Sherrie's photos, I was pretty much sold. Here's her contact info:http://www.makeupmaui.com/ For my hair I used Karine Cummings. I actually stumbled upon her website and liked what I saw. After talking to her I felt really comfortable using her our special day. She is Fun, Fun, Fun!!! Two days before the wedding, I had a hair trial at her home, she is wonderful and very warm. You can tell she really loved working with brides. At the last minute I decided to treat my mom and have her make-up done. Karine was more than willing to come early and complete my mom's make-up. She looked beautiful...as always My hair looked great and my curls hung in the entire time!!! Here's her contact info: http://www.bridalhaironmaui.com/

    Hairstyle and wind

    My hair was down, curled with lots and lots of product. It was fine. If you have a good hairstylist he/she will know what types of products to use to help tame your hair.

    Music vs. Waves

    Due to our budget and the cost of a musican we had our WC bring a small boombox. The waves and conch shell did over shadow the light music but I didn't really care.

    Officiants: Who do you like?

    KImo Kirkman married us, he was pretty cool.

    Kapalua Weather concerns in June?

    I was married on Kapalua Beach on April 15th and stayed in the area for 1 week. It rained alittle, very lightly a few days but just for a few minutes.

    I must agree with Lisa, The Ritz at Kapalua is BEAUTIFUL!!! It's about 10-15 minutes from all of the "action" so it's very romantic, quiet and lovely! You could always stay there 2 nights and then go somewhere else. We stayed at the Royal Lahaina and it was very beautiful and quiet. I recently looked online (I want to go back) and noticed the Ritz was only about 200-300 more than the other hotels.

    Are you flying in prior to wedding?

    I had been to Hawaii before but not Maui. We arrived 5 days before the ceremony. The day before the ceremony I dropped off the favors at I'O (where we had dinner) and that was the first time I saw the place. I didn't see the cermony site, meet the WC/photographer/minister until I arrived at the beach to get married. I basically did everything from the web and referrals. I was very happy with everything and felt like they are the pros, people come to Maui all the time to get married they know what they are doing.

    Rehearsal Dinner in Maui

    There a few places that are pretty good to eat. If you make a reservation ask to eat off the group menu...this will usually save you a few dollars. If you eat at the Hula Grill ask for Jeff (his wife Karine, did my hair...nice guy). Also check out Cheeseburger Paradise (very low-key) but better priced than Kimo's.

    Marriage License Info (maui)

    You can also request a "rush" on your marriage license. From what I remember it was $10 and $5 for each additional certificate. It says it will arrive in 6 weeks but took 3.5 for mine to arrive.
