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’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
