The Seaside Chapel Wedding takes place in the Hawaiian Chapel on the grounds of the Grand Wailea in south Maui. Stained glass windows surround you with scenes from a Hawaiian wedding. The chapel is nestled in a flower filled garden amidst Koi ponds and waterfalls. Seaside Chapel Weddings are performed each day between 11:00 AM and 5:00 PM. (We like to make these arrangements as far in advance as possible.)
Our ministers are non denominational and marry all faiths. Our associate ministers are: Reverend Alalani Hill, an expert in Hawaiian wedding protocol, who will perform either a religious or non religious ceremony, and, Rev. Kamuela Rodregues, a Hawaiian minister who custom tailors your ceremony to your personalities and wishes. If you wish, we can put you in touch any of our ministers prior to your ceremony.
The flowers included in this package are: The traditional Maile leaf lei for the groom, a six foot lei made of fragrant leaves which are worn mainly by men on special occasions and ceremonies - for the bride a beautiful orchid lei and matching hairpiece or Haku head lei. If you wish we can substitute other flower leis you prefer which match your color scheme. You may also order a variety of bridal bouquets, nosegays, corsages, hair flowers, Haku head leis or boutonnieres at an additional cost. Just let us know what your needs are and we will be happy to arrange it for you.
Your wedding photography includes ceremony, formal and candid shots after the ceremony. Your photography includes 28 on a CD. Your photographer will take a number of shots of which you may choose the final 28 for your CD.
Also included in this package is a singer/guitarist to perform the Hawaiian Wedding song and other songs of your choice. Other instruments, such as harp or violin, may be substituted. The musician will play four songs for you.
Your champagne toast takes place at the adjacent gazebo. If you have guests you may want to order additional champagne and glasses for them. Sparkling apple cider may be substituted for champagne if you prefer.
