Maui Same-Sex Marriage
As of 2013, the Aloha State was proud to be one of U.S. states where same sex marriage is legal. Today, the entire Nation enjoys the right to marry within the same-sex! A long-running favorite for destination weddings, Maui continues to be one of the most beautiful places in the world to say 'I Do'.
Beginning January 1st, 2012, civil unions for same sex couples in the state of Hawaii officially included access to the full range of state law rights and responsibilities. On December 2nd, 2013, same sex couples were officially allowed to wed under the Hawaii Marriage Equality Act, signed into law by Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie. Today, the entire US allows for legal civil unions.
Hawaii-born President Barack Obama states that "By giving loving gay and lesbian couples the right to marry if they choose, Hawaii exemplifies the values we hold dear as a nation. I’ve always been proud to have been born in Hawaii, and today’s vote makes me even prouder."

Ke'anae Taro House by @tourmaui - The Ke’anae Peninsula was created from an immense lava flow originating from #HaleakalaCrater. Centuries ago Hawaiians brought soil down, by hand, from the mountains to create the #KeanaePeninsula. Their amazing display of physical labor is a testament to how revered this land is in Hawaiian culture. #maui #hawaii
