Location, location!

Okay, everyone we've locked down a venue for October 3, 2015 at The Royal Lahaina Resort on Kaanapali Beach. 
This far out is generally too far in advance to book hotels, or flights. But Paul and I will do our best to keep everyone informed of when flights/lodging become available. Most airlines typically open up for bookings 12 months in advance. Right now we are 17 months out. Our plan will be to block about 10 rooms. The beauty of this resort is it's location. It is very close to several other hotels/resorts. It is unfortunately about an hours drive from the airport. But once you're there a plethora of activities are available. The Royal Lahaina itself also offers several lodging options. They offer rooms//cottages//beach houses. The cottages might be nice for groups/families or those looking for a kitchen to cook in.

Wedding Bloggin'!

Hi all!
As most of you know Paul and I are engaged. You also likely know that we live in Australia. That has left us with a tricky decision on where to hold our wedding as I'm from Minnesota, and Paul is from Perth (practically 10,000 miles apart). With some careful consideration we decided ((to keep things fair)) was to have our families each come half way. We've chosen to get hitched on Maui in Hawaii October, 2015. Consider this our very informal 'save the date'.  At this stage we won't be sending out hard copy save the dates. Invitations will be sent out closer to the date. We are going through the contract process with the venue as we speak.
This little blog will serve as an information source for our friends and family.
Feel free to ask any questions through here or via email,
As more information becomes available I'll continue to update via this blog.
We're so excited to share our day with you!
Meaghan and Paul
Oh Ps: I've purchased a wedding cake topper!
