Keawala'i church is a quaint, very Hawaiian location in Makena, Maui. The grounds are tropical and the lighting is great for the obligatory family pictures following the ceremony. The minister is very accommodating and even provides me with a ladder in order to get a photograph of all guests and family members. It is located on the blue Pacific adding to the ambience.
We began at the a Four Seasons Resort in Wailea for dressing photos. The wedding itself took place at charming and tropical Keawala'i Church in Makena. Right down the street is N. Malauka beach. They had great fun frolicking in the sand and getting a much needed break from family and friends. The reception took place at Capische restaurant at the Wailea Resort.The gardens there are beautiful and spacious giving guests plenty of room to mingle and pound down adult beverages. Note, too, the amazing sunset from the upper level.
Keawala'i church was Ron and Rhonda's choice for their wedding ceremony. Both residents of Maui, that says a lot. Their incredible reception took place at a private residence in Makena. I mean, they had it all, as you can see from the photos. What an evening! My responsibility as a wedding photographer is to make sure all details, groups of friends and relatives, candid moments (also known as photojournalism) and any special requests, are thoroughly performed AND done so quickly, efficiently and with courtesy.
