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.

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. A commercial kitchen, restrooms as well as changing rooms make hosting your wedding and reception an all-inclusive event with no need to move your wedding party from one location to another. 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.

2014 Maui Weddings – Trends

It’s true! With the help of Google, Brides and Grooms are much more aware this year than in any previous years… 2014 Maui Weddings are skyrocketing – with the main difference being that these destination weddings are no longer site unseen. Brides and Grooms of 2014 Maui Weddings have a very good idea of what they envision and they want to work with Maui wedding planners that actually CARE about THEIR special day.  We are proud that our clients ask us into their ohanas!

“Yayyy! Stress gone. Thanks Darci. I sure loved working with you all. Next vacation we’ll hunt you down and make you take a break for dinner!”
– D. H., May 2014

my wedding in mauiThat may sound like an obvious statement – to care about their special day. But the number one compliment we receive over and over is how they appreciate our clear communication, our dedication to making their special Maui Weddings perfect, and how much we CARE! Mahalo for those compliments – they’re true – we really care about each and every client. They now ask, “I want a planner for my wedding in Maui – who will care the most about my ceremony?”

“We are over the moon. The whole experience just surpassed our expectations. Thank you!”

You should really like your wedding planner and you shouldn’t be paying a fortune for your planner to coordinate everything. If you want to tip your wedding planner after the fact, that’s always appreciated and in our opinion should be earned. We are grateful to be here for you.

So what all is trending this year for 2014 Maui Weddings?

The colors blue and orange…

Maui Weddings FlowersSo maybe not paired together, but blue is definitely  a hot color this year. Adding blue ribbons to leis, blue flowers in bouquets or touches of blue in the petal paths is really beautiful against the golden sand and the teal blue ocean. We’ve done a couple black and teal weddings so far this year and the contrast was gorgeous! Of course you’ll want a morning wedding if you incorporate black into your color scheme.

Orange paired with corals, yellows and bright pinks make a dramatic statement and really sets a beautiful framework for the coupe’s faces and pictures. They compliment a Maui beach wedding very nicely!


Brides and grooms are getting to know more about their destination wedding team, the options available and Maui in general.
