If you’re going to take wedding photos, Maui is a great place to do it. You already have the upperhand in that your backdrops are incredible. That being said, there are many extra challenges that mainland photographers might not be comfortable with: high winds, weather and lighting changes by the second, find beaches without a bunch of people on them, among many other obstacles.
There’s something (actually MANY things) about Maui that make us want to dance. Be it the pure energy of our natural surroundings, activity inducing weather perfection, or the creative enlightenment that many people find in paradise.
Hula is traditionally believed to have been created to honor the thousands of gods and goddesses of ancient Hawaii and has been traced back as far as Polynesian travelers’ first arrival on the islands. It is an age-old tradition firmly embedded in native Hawaiian culture.
There’s so much more to HULA!
This Hula infographic was produced for the Fairmont Kea Lani and Fairmont Orchid Resorts. It beautifully shares where the Hula comes from, what the hula symbolizes, dance wear, musical instruments, flowers worn by island, forms of music and chant, illustrated dance moves, as well as commonly misidentified dances from the Tahitians, Samoans, and Tongans.
Having wedding receptions at restaurants or at private estates aren’t the only ways to go. Recently a wedding party had their reception at the Feast at Lele Luau in Lahaina, west Maui. We thought we’d share some photos from this event taken by Natalie Brown Photography.
If you’re interested in booking Feast at Lele tickets, call (808) 892-3177.
We often get asked, “what can I do with my YOUNG children?” Yes, there’s snorkeling, surf lessons, luaus. But what about the kids that are younger and aren’t at the ability level or attention span needed for fun stuff like that? Here are a few things we like to do with our kids in Maui, Hawaii.
Maui Zipline with Kids
Though kids younger than 5 won’t be zipping, they can still have fun. Many of the lines at the Maui Tropical Plantation are visible from the duck pond, so send your bigger kids zipping while your littler ones enjoy watching and cheering them on with an adult by the pond. Maui Zipline Company specializes in taking all ages through and over this large, tropical property. Call 808.633.2464 to book your tickets. Learn more about the duck pond below.
