Aloha!

Welcome to our honeymoon registry! The countdown is on for our October 18, 2013 wedding date and we couldn't be more excited! Nothing makes us happier than to share our special day with our family & friends traveling from both near and far, so thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being a part of it!

Although we have had the opportunity to do QUITE a bit of a traveling from New York to Los Angeles and back again, those kind of vacations usually meant leaving one another for a couple of months or traveling alone. So when we thought about where to travel on our first real vacation together--OUR HONEYMOON--there were 4 things we agreed this destination must have: sunshine, palm trees, snorkeling, & plenty of "umbrella" drinks! The romantic island of Maui (specifically Kihei) and the beautiful Maui Coast Hotel on Kamaole Beach seemed like the perfect place! (http://www.mauicoasthotel.com/)

When we were trying to decide where to register, we heard about this site and thought it would be a fun way to get our guests involved with our honeymoon planning! Not only will we be beginning our married lives together on one of the most beautiful islands in the world, we'll know that it's our friends and families who helped us get there. Below you'll find an assortment of activities that we've chosen together to make our honeymoon experience truly memorable. If you'd like to give us a gift for our wedding, we'd love it if you'd contribute to an activity/item of your choice.

We did also register at Target for some more conventional items that we can call "ours", so you're welcome to take a peek there if you prefer. We thank you for any contribution to help us make a home together, whether with memories or the more traditional things that will make our everyday lives a little brighter.

We are so blessed to have the most wonderful families and friends! Thank you for sharing this special time in our lives with us!

We look forward to seeing you October 18, 2013!

Love,
Samantha & Kevin

We're going to Kihei, Hawaii!

Kihei is beach-combing territory on Maui’s southwest shore, the sunniest, driest end of the island. Once a regular destination for sojourning Hawaiian royalty, Kihei features six miles of beaches, which offer clear views of Kahoolawe, Molokini, Lanai and West Maui. Along with swimming and surfing you can also find great snorkeling and kayaking, and you may even spot a giant humpback whale spouting or breaching the ocean’s surface.

Kihei’s Kalama Beach Park has shady lawns and palm trees dotting its 36-oceanfront acres. A blink away are Kalpolepo, Waipuilani and the three beaches of Kamaole. Birdwatchers and nature lovers will find what they’re looking for at Kealia Pond on the north end of Kihei. This National Wildlife Conservation District features endangered Hawaiian stilts and coots.

Also north of Kihei is Maalaea Bay, where pleasure boats launch to take visitors on whale watching expeditions, charter fishing excursions and snorkel trips to Molokini. Maalaea is also home to the family friendly Maui Ocean Center.

The town has a collection of affordable accommodations, with condominiums, small hotels and cottages to choose from along Kihei’s beach road. You can also browse small shopping malls, a bustling farmers market and a spate of restaurants, all of which cater to residents and visitors alike. Nightlife here includes karaoke spots, dance clubs and sports bars ensuring your Kihei nights are just as fun as your days.

We will be staying at the Maui Coast Hotel. Located in the heart of sunny Kihei, just across the street from the Kamaole Beach Parks — a wide stretch of beautiful, award-winning, white sand beaches, the Maui Coast Hotel promises the ultimate island getaway. Within walking distance to several shopping, dining and entertainment venues and just minutes away from the Wailea Resort's boutiques, restaurants and championship golf courses.
