In Hawaii we are depending on the weather patterns and all events booked through us take place rain or shine.
We get this questions a lot as couples tend to lookup our weather report ahead of their travel. We do have several climate zones in Hawaii and you will easily see that there is rain in the forecast any of our islands. However, most beaches are located in the dry zones with very little or no rain. We do have backup locations for most beaches on Maui and the Big Island in case it pours down. We are also always happy to re schedule the ceremony if the weather is not playing nice. If you plan to have the ceremony taken place on the north shores (our green belts in Hawaii) you have to be prepared that it might be overcast or even raining.
However, if there is a bad weather will try to find an alternate location, day and/ or time to provide you with the booked service through us. That will depend also on the availability of our vendors and we reserve the right to change to other vendors if needed.
No drones, accessories, structures, devices, amplified instruments, appliances, apparatus or equipment of any type whatsoever shall be placed on or within the right-of-entry area or premises, including but not limited to the following: arches; bowers; altars; tables; chairs; kahilis; tents and/or tarps; event signage of any type including banners, sandwich boards; kiosks or carts; stanchions, posts, ropes or similar equipment for the purpose of demarcation of the right-of-entry area; and surfboards, windsurf boards, kayaks or other ocean recreation equipment; with the exception of the following: loose flowers, leis, bouquets, corsages or boutonnieres; unamplified musical instruments, including a conch shell; doves or butterflies for releases; a limited number of chairs as strictly necessary for the support of elderly, infirm, or disabled persons attending the event(s); cameras and camera equipment; other non-obtrusive hand-carried wedding accessories; small podium or cake stand, not to exceed three (3) feet square in size; and ocean vessels/equipment used exclusively for the purpose of scattering ashes during authorized funeral services.
Alcohol and smoking are prohibited at Hawaiian beaches. We are also not allowed to serve food.
For many years my wife has been taking pictures with our camera and equipment as a cost-saving alternative for some of our clients who do not have the budget to have professional pictures taken during their wedding or vow renewal ceremony. The semi-pro option is only available on the Big Island and we provide 60 high-resolution images with only basic editing. If you want more we recommend selecting our professional photography package instead.
In most cases we arrange and connect you with independent 3rd party companies and vendors that are well established in Hawaii and who will then provide you with their service on the arranged date and time. All vendors work entirely on their own and may offer service direct as well as through other companies.
We cannot guarantee the availability nor are we responsible for their quality of service. We do work with all of them for several years and all of them have very high ratings for their services.
While are are all human and things can always happen.... (especially on an island here in Hawaii). In case of any no show or delay on the day of the event for any reason, we will try to organize a solution on your behalf with our vendors. In case we cannot find a replacement or alternate date and time we will be happy to offer you a refund for the part of the service that cannot be completed. Please contact us immediately by phone or email to resolve the issue.
