Getting married at Gannon's

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! 

 

I am getting married at Gannon's this October and have really appreciated all the great information I've gotten off this forum.  I just started booking things last month and feel like I have a long way to go still.  I'm wondering about the timing of everything.  If the ceremony is sometime between 4 and 4:30, and then we do couple photos on the beach (5 min drive away) what are the guests doing during this time?  The reception is at Gannon's but they don't start bar service until 5:30.  An hour seems like a long time for guests to wait.

Hmm that's a tough one, why don't they start bar service until 5:30? I'd try talking them into letting you have a cocktail hour... play soft music (maybe have a live guitar player?) serve appetizers... maybe have a signature drink available for the hour?

Hi ajpinak - I am getting married at Gannons too! in June 2011.  How many guests are you having? If there are good number of people, I think half an hour is okay.  Who is your photographer? I need to book one...  I appreciate any suggestions.

I agree, Sydney.  Looks like I might have to move my ceremony time a little later though.  With the sun setting around 6pm I really wanted to leave ample time to go down to the beach for photos.

Hi Zizibe and congratulations!  I am having about 20 guests.  My photographer is Kimberlee Aihara and while she is not the cheapest maui photographer, I think her quality of work is well worth it.  Plus, her package includes a second photographer shooting with her and the rights to all the images.  She has a great eye and has been very helpful so far.

You will love Gannon's. I got married there on 10.01.10 at the look out point.  My wedding started at 5pm.  You'll be OK.  You wont probably get to the beach until about 515or 530.  After the ceremony your going to be taking pictures with your guest and family there on site and that takes time.  So by the time your done with that the guest will not have a long wait.  I had 16 guest we didn't get to the beach until 545 with all the pictures we took with family and friend. What part of Gannon is your wedding at?

I used Marabelle for photographer and video.  They are amazing.  My DVD was done in three days and my pictures viewing album online was sent to me in two days.  They got shots that I didn't even know they were taking. I will post pictures shortly.   http://www.marbelle.com/

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
