    We are renewing our vows in Maui on Monday, 6/4/2012. We are thinking of a later afternoon/early evening service (around 6pm) so we can do sunset pictures around 7pm.


    Like many others, we love Makena Cove but have heard it can get quite crowded.

    I'm wondering if anyone has any feedback about the location that might be helpful. 


    We would be ok with a few other people, but would hate to get there and see 4-6 other couples.

    Our group is small. Just myself, my husband and our two girls ages 10 and 7. We'll also have our officiant and photographer obviously. But, no other guests.


    Thanks for any comments, suggestions. We appreciate it!

      Hi KimmyK,


      I will be getting married on Makena Cove 6-20-12..a Wednesday. Like you, fell in love with the place, but because it's a public beach also decided middle of the week instead of weekend is better chances of avoiding the crowds. Not only are we doing it mid-week, we are doing it in the morning. We spoke to our officiant who will also be our photographer, and he said the planned time of 10 am was BAD. Heat would be too great by that time, and lighting for pics would be harsh.So we are getting married at 8AM!!! INSANE, I KNOW!  I don't know if you know this..probably so, but you are not allowed to have chairs or anything at the beaches, by law. He said if we planned on having a crowd of about 20, we probably shouldn't worry, becuase we'd dominate the space. lol. I would definitely shoot an email out to a website you come across that has packages and ask what they think about your future plans. They will be honest with you and will suggest the best time. Good Luck!

        Where were you able to find out all this info on Makena Cove?  I'm looking at the White Orchid Beach House in Makena for a wedding in either May or June of 2012.  Didn't know about the "chair" rule...yikes.  Any info you have or links where I can look would be great!  Thanks so much!
