As a Maui Wedding Planner, we learned a lot about adaptability in the past year. Even while we and the rest of the wedding world learned to cope with travel challenges, an ever-evolving guest list, and changing formats on a dime, we experienced magical moments of love and celebrations with our couples.
One of the advantages of a Hawaiian wedding that’s emerged for us, especially since the pandemic, is that the islands provide opportunities for celebrations of all sizes and shapes.
Read on for more on this benefit of planning a wedding in the beautiful Hawaiian islands.
We love elopements because there’s so much room for personalization and intimacy. Whether your dream is for a standalone event with your love, or a small ceremony to take place before a larger reception elsewhere, elopements in Hawaii stand out. We work with our couples to ensure that each elopement is an expression of who you are as a couple. Whether you’re saying your I do’s on a seaside cliff, after hiking in the rainforest, in a private beach cove, or under the stars, the romance of Hawaiian elopements is unmatched. Some of our favorite locations for elopements include the Ritz Kapalua, Four Seasons Maui and Lanai, and Hana Hotel.
Micro weddings are a rising trend – and for good reason! They are the perfect post-COVID fit for many couples, as they’re defined as events under 50 guests. We think they’re here to stay, however, because they result in events with the most pivotal and influential guests present. I, Jennifer, had a micro wedding, and it was perfect for me, as the small size allowed my brand-new husband and I to enjoy not just our wedding day, but an entire vacation with our favorite people! For couples having micro weddings, we work to plan activities, from days at the pool to luaus and tropical hikes, to make forever memories in your favorite place with your most cherished people. Whether your micro wedding ceremony takes place on a manicured tropical lawn at the Ritz Carlton or on the Four Seasons Lanai Golf Course, a lush garden patio, or on a sandy beach, Hawaii offers the perfect setting and we can help turn it into your reality.
For couples dreaming of larger and more traditional weddings, Hawaii offers a range of spectacular venues. While Luxury resorts such as the Four Seasons Lanai or Ritz Carlton Kapalua provide seamless experiences, top-tier customer service and reduce the need for transportation. Also private venues, such as Haiku Mill, Olowalu Plantation House and Merrimans, are also amazing options. These venues provide off-site locations that can be designed to your personal vision and are immersed in local culture and beauty. From creating a custom oceanside tent for 200 guests with the tropical breeze blowing through to extravagant resort ballrooms with panoramas of the ocean, beaches, and lawns, we can help you find the perfect location for your wedding.
