Expo attracts future brides, grooms
FIRST PHOTO: Ryan Anderson and Maegan Fowler, both of Pukalani, take a spin in The Maui Photo Bus at the 23rd annual Maui Wedding Expo on Saturday at The King Kamehameha Golf Club. The couple have not yet set a date but are aiming for “maybe June,” said Anderson. The mobile vintage photo booth in a 40-year-old Volkswagen bus includes state-of-the-art equipment and a photo printer for instant mementos, an online gallery and digital files for the host. Tim Clark from the Maui Wedding Association said that about 600 future brides and grooms took in the annual show that featured entertainment, catering, venues, photography and video from more from 33 vendors.
SECOND PHOTO: Adelle Lennox of Dazzle Entertainment models the Champagne skirt Saturday at the Maui Wedding Expo in Waikapu. Lennox employs a bevy of “fabulous party minglers” that circulate among wedding guests with Champagne, cocktails, desserts or gift bags on the rolling skirt.
THIRD PHOTO: Haku Maui owner Britney Texeira arranges some of the petals at her Haku Bar in the Maui Wedding Expo booth shared with longtime transportation company Akina Tours. The two firms have partnered in Akina’s Upcountry Tropical Farm Tours, bringing visitors to Texiera’s Makawao haku lei workshop that offers travelers a traditional lei-making experience. Haku Maui also makes floral crowns for weddings, bridal showers, rehearsal dinners or any special occasion.
