A Few Things to Remember
Most of these little details are fairly standard practice, and are simply meant to help avoid
any conflicts that may arise in business dealings.
Please confirm your Beach Wedding Reservation with a Deposit of
$100.00. Special-order Flowers & Dinner packages require an extra deposit one month before the Wedding.
*For Deluxe Weddings
Waimea Falls Park, Loulu Palm Estate,
please send a non-refundable Deposit of $1000.00, and pay the balance one month before your Wedding.
Maui or Kauai Weddings should be paid in full right after we confirm your
reservation if your Wedding date is just a month away.

2. MARRIAGE LICENSE
The two of you will need to go to the Hawaii Dept. of Health and
pick up your Marriage License. Please bring
it with you to the Ceremony for the Minister to sign.
*Note: For sunset weddings, if you forget your Marriage License in your Hotel room, please continue on to your Wedding so we do not run out of time before the sun sets. We can sign your Marriage License later.
3. Contact Us in Honolulu
After you arrive in Honolulu, please let us know your hotel room number.
A few days before your Wedding we recommend checking your emails each day in case we send you an important message concerning your Wedding.
On your Wedding day please leave your cell phone on so we can reach you if necessary.
Please keep important phone numbers that we give you, such as your Wedding Coordinator (808-772-1140)
and your Wedding Minister and Photographer's phone numbers available in case you are not sure where to meet, or if anyone is delayed.
Please don't hesitate to call them right away should any of our staff be one minute late.
*If you are meeting us at a public beach and did not order our transportion, it's a good idea to touch bases with your Minister by telephone before you go. Those without a cell phone can use a phone in the hotel room or hotel lobby.
Any hotel staff can assist you if you don't know where to find a telephone.
You may call us at 808-772-1140 or 924-3600 any time you have questions.
You may pay for your Wedding services by Check, Cash, or Credit Card.
(If you prefer to pay by check, please send your check payment one month
before your Wedding date so there will be sufficient time to clear.)
