from All Ways Maui'd Weddings, Ceremonies & Photography . . .
Mahalo nui loa - thank you very much - for your interest in the ceremonies and related services that we offer here in beautiful, romantic Maui. Beginning when you first contact us, until you say "I Do," it would be our distinct good pleasure to be of assistance to you in every way possible.
Below you will find some general information about us and our services, along with links to selected pages at our website which, we believe, should help a lot with your decision making process.
** First off, please allow me a moment to introduce ourselves to you ~ I am Rev. Kolleen O'Flaherty Wheeler (or simply Kolleen), the Officiant/Coordinator for All Ways Maui'd Weddings & Ceremonies. My husband of 30-years, Bruce Wheeler, is the principal photographer for Seventh Wave PhotoGraphics, our in-house photography service. We're a "Happily Maui'd" couple who have been blessed to call Maui home since early in 1983. We specialize in "smaller," more intimate weddings, vow renewals and assorted other blessings in versions that include Non-denominational Christian, Spiritual or Simply Romantic themes. Bruce is also our webmaster, so you can find many examples of his award winning photography throughout our rather unique maui-angels.com site. (We are not mauisangelsweddings.com)
** Our site's table of contents page should help you a lot with your navigation around it. However, following are a few links that will take you directly to some of the more important ceremony-related pages to be found; including what's required to get married in Hawai'i, our detailed ceremony packages page and a page listing our miscellaneous (optional) ceremony-enhancing add-on (à la carte) selections.
** In addition to performing your ceremony, we gladly offer our assistance with all essential coordination matters including (but not limited to); the setting of your licensing appointment (required for "legal" ceremonies), help in selecting the most appropriate public location for your ceremony, obtaining the State land use permit (when required), the booking of a private ceremony location (if desired), plus the making of all arrangements for (optional) videography/web casting, music/musicians, deluxe florals, sparkling cider toasts with personalized engraved toasting glasses, dove and/or butterfly releases, etc.
** You will no doubt find answers to many of your "Getting Maui'd" questions at our Frequently Asked Questions page. More questions? Please contact us . . .
** When the time comes to begin making formal arrangements for your ceremony, please follow these steps:
2. Then, complete our Booking Application/Agreement Form and send it on to us via email, postal mail (time allowing), scan (.pdf) or fax to 808-242-8019. Note: If you choose to email your application to us, please fax, scan or mail the signature page/s as we are in need of your actual signatures, too At this point - if it hasn't been arranged for already - we'll set your appointment with a licensing agent.
3. A 50% (minimum) down payment - in U.S. funds - is required to guarantee your booking, to be arranged for at the time you submit your application/agreement. Note: Any remaining balance due must be paid not later than ten (10) days prior to your ceremony's date. (Down payment amounts may be found on our packages page.) Also, It's OK to fax your credit card info, but it's up to you whether you choose to email it, or not. We would much prefer that you call us with your bank card information, or fax it to 808-242-8019 - along with your signed application - whatever works the best for you.
4. Upon our receipt of your completed application (and down payment) we will issue you a confirming statement via return email, and, time allowing, we will also send you a nice variety of sample ceremony scripts and vows readings for you to pick and choose from. (You're very welcome to include readings of your own, to share with each other during your ceremony.)
We sincerely hope the above information has been useful, and that it's answered many of your questions. However, please don't hesitate to email (or call us) with any other questions and/or concerns that you may have. We look forward to hearing back from you, and to being of service to you on our truly wonderful Island, "...always with Aloha!"
Aloha ke Akua, Kolleen
