Unplug the Wedding Ceremony
A picture speaks a thousand words, right? Here’s an idea for your upcoming wedding…
Not to say that your friends and family aren’t brilliant photographers themselves, but you are paying for a professional photographer. In order to capture every emotion, detail, and angle, the photographer needs to have clear and easy access. So, our idea is that you politely ask all guests to refrain from using their mobile phones or digital cameras during the entire wedding; keep it unplugged. They can always see the wedding pictures later on, on social media or the photography site. The actual ceremony, ring exchange, and big kiss are key aspects of your wedding; you wouldn’t want your professional pictures ruined because of your guest photographers in the way, would you?
You’re paying the photographer big money to capture every moment, but sometimes it’s not that easy when there are “roadblocks” in the way. Also, just as much as it’s in the way of the photographer, it can be in your way as well. Can you imagine not being able to see your partner’s face when walking down the aisle, because of a cell phone or iPad in the way? That’d be terrible! Often times, not on purpose, guests do get in the way. It’s almost as if their images are more important than you getting married; they’re so focused on the picture that they don’t actually see your emotions and catch every detail.
By having an unplugged wedding, your photographer is sure to capture each image perfectly! Your guests will be able to truly enjoy the ceremony with no distractions. This idea doesn’t mean that they cannot bring their cellular devices, but just asks the guests politely not to use their phones, cameras, or iPads besides making a call of course. This idea of being unplugged also gives everyone the chance to mingle; nowadays people are so addicted to screens, that putting them down for a while will bring them back to reality; they’ll have a lot more fun.
As stated in Cosmopolitan, “weddings are to celebrate love, not to compete with 50 other guests for the photo of the back of the bride’s head,” and we couldn’t agree more!
So, while sending out your invitations, insist on an unplugged ceremony: no technology.

The Haiku Mill venue is surrounded by rustic elegance. Our artsy and inspirational Maui wedding coordinators love the serenity and natural beauty of this place. Ting was beaming in her soft white flowing wedding dress. I’m a true believer that it was all the classic details that made this wedding celebration so memorable. We worked closely with the bride and groom in creating their wedding fantasy. Bao’s wishes were to make their Maui wedding special for Ting by granting her every wedding wish that she had. Ting’s wanted a look that could withstand the test of time. She wanted romantic and soft pinks, blues, lavenders, whites and green. Her whimsical floral inspiration with fine, yet rustic touches, and classic details.
Happily Ever After

Maui Wedding Love
Maui wedding love is for sharing. We tend to go through life just doing our routine. Every once in a while something in life stops us and reminds us that we are not only simply living on this island, but we are part of it’s beauty. There’s something special about being surrounded by the ocean, sunshine, rainbows, mountains and tropical breezes. Each day starts with a reminder of how blessed we are to be surrounded by such beauty.
Intimate gatherings are a form of art. They may be small, but there is no shortage of love or a creative vision. Prepare to fill each event wildly with love and filled with oohs and ahhs! Stop to take a breath for a moment and absorb your surroundings. Enjoy your Maui Wedding Love.

Maui Wedding Send Offs
What are couples planning for your Maui wedding send offs? Some creative examples are ribbon wands, lavender cones, rose petal cones, flags, wishing wands, balloons, glow sticks, sparklers, bubbles or party poppers. Since throwing rice is no longer allowed at most venues, you may really theme your wedding send off to your taste, style and theme. Whether you plan to have your guests greet you as you walk out of the wedding ceremony venue or at the end of your reception on your way to your car, having a planned wedding send off is a MUST! Luckily, it is something simple to coordinate and there are a lot of really cute ideas that won’t break the bank. Your wedding coordinator will help to organize and distribute the send off supplies. Plan a driver to assist the couple to their destination following their send off in a get away car. Send offs are a great way to end your special event and start your new life!
