    Hi everyone

    I was originally using this site to try to plan a big destination wedding in the Mayan Riviera. After some planning and discussion, we have switched gears a bit.

    Our new wedding plans are for an "elopement" in Maui. We are inviting our closest and dearest friends to join us. My date is May 22nd, 2009.

    We are using Lori Scott from Tropical Maui Weddings, and so far she has been great. She will be helping me plan my wedding and reception at Seawatch.
    She has been great, and I look forward to meeting her and her talented musician husband in Maui next May :)

    Right now I am planning on using the Lower Knoll for the ceremony and the Upper Pond for the dinner. I think it will be a great day.

    As far as photography, I am looking into Ka'ua, Dolce, and Shawn Starr. They all have beautiful portfolios.

    I am still trying to decide on a minister and where to stay. I am also trying to figure out what to do for the honeymoon. We are thinking about island hopping, but we do not know where yet!

    Glad to have found this place :)

              Congratulations Amanda! I am planning the exact same wedding as you! Except our reception is going to be on the upper lawn at the Seawatch. Our ceremony is also on the lower knoll. I will make sure to post lots of pictures when we get back for you to see

              My WC is Laurie from Makena Weddings and her husband is the minister marrying us. My friend also used them and they were very happy with them. I'm sure if you are still looking for a minister that you could contact them. They do traditional Hawaiin, Christian or non-denominational ceremonies. They sent me potential scripts for all three, and they can also be modified to be more personal.

              We are having about 20 guests, so it sounds like our weddings will be very similar! Keep in touch, and make sure to check out the Maui forum. There are quite a few of us getting married at the Seawatch.

              Happy planning!
              Colin in I in 2005 when we fell in love with Maui!
