4th of July on Maui
Happy 4th of July from AfterGlobe! We can’t believe how quickly this past year has flown by. It seems like only yesterday, we had just received our marriage license and we’re just starting to greet our wedding guests on the beautiful island of Maui.
Celebrating 4th of July on Maui
We thought the 4th of July would be the perfect day to kick-off our wedding extravaganza by inviting all of our wedding guests with a welcome party. We started with some time at Baldwin Beach, relaxing, swimming, and catching some waves.
Hawaiian 4th of July Dinner
After all of the fun in the sun, we asked our friends and family to join us for a Hawaiian dinner back on the lanai. We served kalua pork, chow fun noodles, a salad of organic spring mix, tropical fruits and papaya poppy seed dressing, taro and Hawaiian sweet bread rolls, tropical fruits and some of our favorite local snacks like Hurricane Popcorn. We loved introducing almost everyone to one of our favorite local snacks, Li Hing Mui!
With everyone happy and full on Hawaiian grindz and tropical drinks, we handed out welcome bags to help make their time on Maui more enjoyable. The welcome bags included all the little things that you may need while traveling that you don’t think of, as well as Hawaiian drinks and treats. We were then all treated to one of Hawaii’s famous rainbows.
Parrots in Palm Trees
As nighttime fell, we walked our wedding guests out to the beach where we would be getting married in just a few short days. To our surprise, we were greeted by a beautiful macaw parrot in the palm trees. It flew over to Drew and I, landing in the palm tree directly above us. We took it as a good sign. How could you not?
Light Painting for 4th of July
Once it got dark enough, we handed out sparklers to our guests for a little 4th of July fun! What’s the 4th of July without sparklers? Boring, that’s what it is!
Not much could top our 4th of July on Maui. We look forward to celebrating in Hawaii, again in the future.
