Maui Wedding Venues

Maui Wedding Venues… the best of the best

Kukahiko Estate weddingSmall, intimate but oh so very memorable….



What is on your wish list for your special day? Gone are the days of having to invite everyone you’ve ever met! Nowadays your special day is all about you and the love of your life with those friends and family close enough to drop everything for your special event.

Most people don’t have a list of invitees that necessitates a massive reception venue and so what to do if your guest list consists of only a few close friends and family but more than the intimate beach wedding concept?

Maui wedding venuesThe idea of a destination wedding at a Maui wedding venues is becoming not only extremely appealing, but quite often more cost effective than a “traditional” wedding . Just imagine how thrilled your guests will be to combine your magical day with a tropical island vacation? Not only will you and your other half never forget your wedding day but also those guests lucky enough to be with you will also hold your day forever in their treasured memories.


maui wedding beachThere are many places in the world that have experts that can create a destination wedding experience… places where you can put your wish list in someone else’s capable hands and just show up on that special day ready to be pampered. For my money though the places that top the list are places with sun, sand and sea. There is nothing like standing in paradise gazing at your love with the sun on your back and the sound of the ocean in your ears.


Maui Wedding VenuesSo what destination do you choose?

A place that would suit most any couple (and their guests) is Hawaii. And the pick of places in Hawaii is the wonderful island paradise of Maui. Maui is close enough from wherever in the world you’re traveling from, the weather is near perfect all year round and there are a couple wonderful venues to hold our special dream event.

In fact, choose Maui and a wedding planner like Aloha Maui Dream Weddings and there will really not be a lot more for you to worry about apart from what to pack in your suitcase.

Maui wedding venue viewSugar Beach EventsThey can guide you toward Maui wedding venues that will suit the number of guests you envision and take care of all the details so that your day will be absolutely perfect. Your options for a wedding that might cater for perhaps around 25-50 guests, vary from

  • a beach ceremony and reception
  • a chapel followed by a more traditional ‘reception’
  • a garden wedding and an elegant hotel reception
  • a private or semi-private venue wedding & reception all-in-one

Speak to the delightful team at AMDW, explain your dream and let them make it not only come true, but more memorable than you had ever hoped.

Deciding among the Maui Wedding Venues…

Maui wedding venueAnd if your vision is not quite “clear” they will help you find focus. They’ve done it all before and will listen and suggest what might work for you. They are tireless in finding perfection and can even help you understand your thoughts without you having to speak them. Put your trust and your dreams in their hands, you’ll be so glad you did. Of course if you know exactly what you want that’s great too, they will make sure that what you see in your mind translates into real life.


Maui wedding venueI can’t think of anything more elegant than pledging your life to your beloved’s and then strolling hand in hand into a flower and candle filled reception joined by only your closest family and friends. As the sun sets on your perfect day you will be over the moon that you chose Maui to start your married life together and I promise you, your guests will never forget your special day.

There is such a magical place where the property gracefully meanders its way to the edge of the ocean through the shaded boughs of aged trees. One such property is located on the western  coast of the island. Experience the combined luxury feel of old Hawaii with the conveniences of a modern Maui.

Soft green lawns and swaying trees are inviting to your guests along with warm ocean breezes.

Wanting a Maui wedding venue with a more intimate feel? Enjoy beautiful island views from atop a hillside or set back with all the amenities of a larger venue but with a more personal feel. Serving staff waiting on your every need and your guests being entertained all night long. You won’t miss out on those romantic, sunset beach pictures either because beautiful beaches are within minutes.

Remarkable Maui sunsets combine to make your wedding day or night a truly memorable occasion. Whether your ceremony is held under the glowing Hawaiian sun or the twinkling tropical stars, Maui is an excellent choice for your wedding event.

Dreaming of Eloping on Maui

Dreaming of eloping on Maui (and ticking off some bucket list additions)?


eloping on mauiThere is a reason the Hawaiian people say “Maui No Ka Oi!” (Maui is the Best!).  It’s because it just is! It’s the reason why Oprah and many other highly visible individuals choose Maui as the place to escape to paradise. It’s the reason once you visit, you will forever long to return. The spirit of Aloha will remain in your heart long after your feet are back on home soil and will never quite leave you.

What better idea than eloping on Maui…

2016 vow renewalThe term ‘bucket list’ became popular a few years back and there’s a reason we should all make one.

Not only in the way that you need to tick off items before you shuffle off this mortal coil, but in the way of making lasting memories that will make your heart sing every time you remember them. Romance, love, incredible sights, sounds and smells… that timeless elegance of gorgeous sand and gentle waves… Elope on Maui and experience the wonder that delights so many already!

Eloping on Maui and Making Memories

Life is about making memories, not ‘who dies with the most toys wins’.  Go make a bunch of them!

Maui offers much for the ‘ticker of the bucket list’:

… from lazing on a pristine beach
… to peeking into the lives of some amazing sea life
… to thrill-seeking activities to wake up that adrenaline
… to the most stunning drive that you will see in many-a-lifetime.

Things to do in Maui 2016Spend a day on the Road to Hana. Whether you chose to rent the car of your dreams and drive yourself or if you feel your eyes will be too busy taking in all the gorgeousness to stay affixed on the road and you elect to take a guided tour. Whichever way you choose to see it, do! There are more waterfalls than you’ve imagined on one drive and each curve of the road will uncover another lush ‘wow’ moment.

Whatever else is on your list, be sure to include checking out our amazing waterfalls.


elopement packages mauiGo whale watching if you’re here in the winter!  Humpback whales make Maui their regular home and seeing these gentle giants is a once in a lifetime treat. Their smaller pals, the dolphins, also like to show themselves for your viewing pleasure and I know that watching these crazy clowns frolic definitely ticked off one of my list inclusions.

Likewise, Maui’s beautiful turtles, though not as large, are just as majestic and swimming with these beauties will fill your soul with a sense of calm. Check out a cleaning station or the turtle highway. Float on the surface and watch them feed or play.

Even just swimming through the warm clear waters without the company of any sea creatures is still one of the most delightful things to do. The clouds above reflecting on the surf… breathtaking.

maui vow renewal 2016If getting your heart pumping is more your style, then why not book yourself in for a zipline adventure. Maui offers choices from the kid friendly to soaring 90 ft above a canyon. It’s most definitely a different way to see this beautiful land and though it’s not on my list, for many of you it will be right up there (no pun intended!)

But maybe just slipping that ring on your wife’s finger and declaring your undying love will be adventure enough.

inclsive wedding packagesMake sure you take advantage of one of the many luaus available – please be sure to ask us which ones are worth the money so you’re not disappointed.

It’s flowing right now for the first time in ages and is a gorgeous site at sunset or sunrise.

Beach Attire:

Maui Wedding ideasOur researchers anticipate that 2018 Maui Weddings will bring back the elegance in beach attire! As we approach the second half of 2017, casual-chic beach attire is ramping up.  2015 showed us tuxedos on the beach… 2016 went the opposite direction with the return of khaki pants and white button up shirts. 2017 brought in a nice mix of bow ties, colored pants, formal dresses and matching colors for guest attire. 2018 is expected to continue this wave of beach fashion with more mauve, burgandy and vintage Hawaiian colors.

2016 Maui Wedding ideasMake your wedding a notch above the rest by adding a subtle flair that denotes your personalities. It’s not simply about the bride anymore.  Another great Maui wedding idea- make a statement in your Maui wedding photos!


Maui Wedding Ideas: Ceremony

Maui wedding venuesSpice up your Maui Beach Wedding with the addition of a dove release or monarch butterfly release. Want a way to have your special guests feel included in the ceremony? Why not have them each release a butterfly or ask a parent to read a poem during your ceremony? Have someone with musical experience? Why not invite someone to sing at your wedding? Work with our amazing musicians to get just the right sound for your ambiance. A perfectly timed poem or scripture reading by someone dear to your heart can really elevate your wedding.


Maui Wedding Ideas: Reception

Maui Wedding CakesRather than ordering a wedding cake along with table centerpieces, why not order smaller wedding cakes and display them AS your centerpieces? It not only carries your theme throughout the room and allows for  quite the conversation pieces, but also allows you to stretch your budget for other exciting reception ideas. Imagine the intimacy it would bring when you and your spouse circulate toward the end of the evening and cut the first piece of each cake with those guests at the table. Your guests would feel your one-on-one attention and remember how unique you were to do that with them.

Donut CakeNot feeling the traditional wedding cake? Why not vote for a caramelized fruit tart, cupcake cake or a tiered donuts cake? 2016 Maui Weddings will have a number of fresh new, innovative choices for culinary delights.


Maui weddings CakesAmazing new bakers and culinary artists have been breaking into the scene this year, as well as tried-and-true shops stretching their creative boundaries. All this in preparation for a brighter, sweeter 2018! Pictures printed on rice paper with edible ink… bamboo twigs made of frosting… decorations of spun sugar and local florals.

Let your imagine flow or let our design team advise you. We can take any Maui wedding idea and make it into a dream wedding!


Maui Wedding ideasTrying to decide whether or not to hire a DJ for your smaller reception? Consider this: Working with our talented and personable DJ ahead of time can shape your evening into the style of party you want it to be. You can spend hours making decisions on the decor with your Maui wedding planner only to find that your guests don’t want to leave their seats. Your DJ can keep the flow going as well as ensure you don’t miss special, unique moments. Maui Wedding IdeasFor example… are you inviting little ones to your reception? Why not include them by adding a teddy bear toss before the garter & bouquet toss? You’ll enjoy the enthusiasm from the kids and parent alike while getting everyone in the mood to continue the party out of their seats and onto the dance floor!

Maui wedding ReceptionsLooking for an innovative way to remind your guests of all the fun times that led up to your special day? Why not work with our designers to create a video slide show that you can display at the reception? We can set it up on a laptop with loop or use our portable video projector to bring your adventures to life! You can create a designer card table to captivate your guests as they arrive at your reception. We can tie in your theme and leave your guests talking about your special day for months to come!

Don’t let the idea of a destination wedding limit your creativity. Planning a wedding and reception from miles away can be easy with the right wedding planner and design team. Your intimate beach wedding can be absolutely amazing and your reception will leave your guests talking about YOUR wedding above all others. If you’re only inviting your closest friends and family (ohana), don’t let that stop you from creating your dream experience. We can arrange intimate receptions as well as full scale fairy tale moments. Give us a call to discuss your vision!

Hawaii Beach Weddings

When you consider where to have your Hawaii Beach Weddings, move Maui to the top of your list.

beach weddings mauiThere are more grains of sand on the beaches of Maui then could ever possibly be counted. Each one appears to be similar to the next but actually each one is as unique as each one of us.

The eons of time and tide shaped each grain to make it perfect.


Beach WeddingsAnd when you stand at the edge of the ocean holding the hands of the one you give your love to, each grain of Maui sand, impeccably crafted by nature, holds you steady and true.

Sun warms your skin, love warms your heart, and following the same timelessness that it took to shape the sand, you wed. Your words to each get caught on a breeze and carried off into eternity.

No Keia La, No Keia Po, A Mau Loa
from this day, from this night, forever more.

Hawaii Beach Weddings for eloping

vow renewal mauiThe beauty of simple Hawaiian beach weddings is that it allows couples to just ‘be in the moment’. It is impossible to not feel every emotion as well as every warm breeze. To hear every word spoken and also hear every wave caress the shore. Simple, yet incredibly elegant and intimate. And so memorable. Maui offers many beaches that offer that feeling of privacy – very much the opposite of Waikiki.

Eloping in MauiThe Hawaiians have such beautiful ways to express love, joy, and happiness. Somehow expressions of love just sound more warm when they are wrapped with the Hawaiian language.

Aloha Aku No, Aloha Mai No;
I give my love to you, you give your love to me.

Uncomplicated, heartfelt, meaningful words that speak of commitment and adoration.

Please let us help you plan your unique, personal, and very memorable day. You are our Ohana for the day, our family, and we want your beach weddings to be everything you dreamed.

Follow along on one of our Australia bride’s journey… when she was

Married in Maui

Once upon a time a (not so young) lady was planning her nuptials. Sadly she had been down that aisle once before but that is another story and one that is not at all relevant to this tale.

Married in MauiShe (the not so young lady) was trying to work out what she wanted for her special day. She was not looking for the full on extravaganza complete with every relative, 6 bridesmaids and a fluffy white dress. Her betrothed on the other hand had not tripped his way down the aisle before and wanted to make some sort of a fuss (and rightly so.) They were both of the same mind however that when it came to a wedding they wanted it to only be about them.

So she made a list of things she would like (and of course consulted the lovely fella) and they agreed that they would love to pledge their love for one another with the sun on their backs and the sand between their toes. Weather in their part of the world (Australia) could be either fantastic or something that might destroy good hair and makeup so they came up with the idea to combine their wedding with a honeymoon and choose somewhere they would love to spend their first days as husband and wife. Once again they compared notes on places on their ‘bucket lists’ and thankfully right at the very top of both was Hawaii. A little more discussion and they both came to the conclusion that being married in Maui might tick off all the boxes on their wish list, and offered everything they were dreaming of.

married in mauiI did forget to mention that the NSY lady was a teeny tiny weeny bit of a ‘control freak’ so the only thing that was worrying her was to let go of most of the planning of their special day and place it in the hands of someone on almost the other side of the world who she had never met! Luckily enough an internet search (and perhaps the universe) pointed her towards Aloha Dream Weddings and from the very first ‘chat’ via email, she felt that their wishes were understood and she could leave so many of the details in the hands of Darci. Poor Darci may or may not have had to answer a myriad of questions which kept popping up but she did so with absolute grace and the utmost patience and at no time did the NSY lady feel worried or concerned that their vision was not understood. In fact don’t tell anyone, but she kind of enjoyed the letting go of doing everything once she realized that Darci was in total control and understood what they were looking for better than even they did. We let Aloha Maui Dream Weddings take care of getting us married in Maui.

Accommodation and plane tickets were booked and the search for a dress (and something fancy for the fella to wear) began but that was all they needed to worry their pretty little heads about. Darci suggested where and when (and even provided times for the sunset) and arranged every little thing from the fabulous memory capturing talents of Penny Palmer Photography to the licence appointment and a couple of gorgeous hair and makeup gals to ensure that the NSY lady looked quite frankly the best she had looked in many a year.

married in mauiTheir married in Maui day was everything they had wished for. Her fella had to wipe away tears when he watched her walk towards him along the beautiful beach setting Darci had chosen and the ceremony she wrote for them after ‘listening’ to who they were was truly perfect. The beach was all theirs and their magical ceremony was just about them – exactly as they both wanted without truly knowing that they did and if you ask them both today (2 blissful years down the track) if they would change anything there is not one thing that comes to mind.

And … they lived happily ever after
