Maui Vacation Rentals Kihei Maui Hawaii
They have quite a few other units available. The "Oceanview Hideaway Studio" in Wailea sounds really amazing, but it wasn't available for the days we need. We figured it's probably just as well that we're staying in Kihei for those 5 days though, as we'll be meeting with vendors, and they're all in Kihei (and Lahaina). Still, if the Oceanview one were available, I think I would have talked the FI into it! The one we booked looks lovely though, and it's pretty inexpensive compared to hotels we saw of similar quality.
We initially found the condo listing on ..VRBO® is Vacation Rentals by Owner® Vacation Homes Rentals by Owner, which is a great site for vacation rentals, particularly in Hawaii.
We're staying at the Wailea Marriott the night before our wedding and on the wedding night (this is where we're having our ceremony). I've started another thread on the Wailea Marriott for those who are interested.

We are booking everything "a la carte" so to speak, and then she charges 18% for her coordination fee. She has booked our ceremony & reception site, photographer/videographer, florist, hair & make-up, musicians for the ceremony, DJ & dance floor, transportation... everything pretty much. I'm pretty happy and everything has been totally stress-free up to this point.

I don't mind AT ALL that you mentioned my name when you enquired about the booking! I'm so happy to hear that I was able to help you out! I agree that all their condos look beautiful. I was thrilled when I found them. We're getting married this October, so I'll be sure to write a thorough review for you when we get back. I've heard from a number of people though (including Pisces) that the condos are wonderful though, so I doubt the review will be much more than confirmation of that! Oh, and to echo Pisces's comment, the rate is for the room per night, there's no additional amount for the second person. I think you'll find North American accomodation in general very affordable. Every time we go to the UK, we're in shock at how much we spend on a decent room!

We're using Mike Sidney (Mike Sidney) for pictures. A Dream Wedding booked him for us, and they work with him a lot. My friend who got married there last year used him, and her pictures are amazing. They booked Paster Vance (Pastor Vance Ali'i Rosete - Hawaiian Minister - Maui, Hawaii) as our officiant (we're going to have a non-religious ceremony). Two of my friends have been married by him, and they and their respective husbands can't say enough good things about him. We were joking that at the rate we're going, we should practically be getting a group rate!
I booked my makeup artist and hairstylist myself, based on the recommendation of Barefoot Bride 5 on this forum. I'm having Jessica Waite for makeup and Dan Sanchez for hair. They're both amazing (based on the work on their respective websites and references), and I've found them both so professional and enthusiastic already. Dan even had me send him pictures of my hair and ideas for hairstyles already!
I suppose I should end my novel of a post now. I hadn't been on the site much lately, but I think my passion has been renewed!
