    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/
