I have questions. I am plannig a surprise 25th Anniversary vow renewal end of June.
I'd appreciate of someone could walk through this with me, as I can't discuss with my husband. I was thinking of meeting at 5:00pm on Kapalua Beach, maybe 5:30, figuring the event, with photos would take about 1 to 1.5 hours. I wanted time to have a cocktail out on the patio at Merriman's, and then dinner no later than 7:30.
1) From the beach, can you just walk up to the restaurant? I don't remember... I never paid attention to the beach.
2) The company I'm most likely booking with, suggested Fleming Beach instead, saying its less crowded, and then a 10-min drive to Merriman's. I kinda feel like I am being led to that plan, more for their own benefit/convenience than my own. I was thinking there'd be no driving, and I thought someone in this forum said Kapalua Beach was lovely for a vow renewal or wedding.
3.) They also suggested meeting at 6:30, because sunset is at 7:12, and then they finish at 7:30. But if I take their advice, that means no time to sit out and have drinks before dinner. On top of that, if its Fleming Beach, not only no pre-dinner cocktails, but also dinner is later than 7:30. At first, I wasn't sure I was hung up on "sunset." I know its a beautiful time for photos etc., but do people do it without sunset too?
I'm just getting so overwhelmed with the details. I don't want poor photos, obviously, nor hoards of people, but..... you know how you have an image in your head, and once its there, its hard to shake??? lol...
