Getting married and having our honeymoon in Maui was the most amazing experience! It is true that it is very expensive, especially the food! But it is a tropical paradise and I would highly recommend it. Our wedding and reception came off without a hitch, thanks to some wonderful vendors and wonderful family and friends. Do give yourself plenty of time to plan if you intend to have your wedding here though. Some vendors are on "Hawaii time" and tend to respond a bit more slowly than say, Los Angeles.
Bernie from White Orchid Wedding was wonderful. She was very prompt in returning emails and suggested some wonderful vendors. She made my wedding day easy go very smoothly. A White Orchid Wedding is one of the top wedding coordinators in Hawaii - and well deserved.
It was a little nerve wracking ordering a cake without a tasting. We chose the marble cake with vanilla and lilikoi filling. The cake was moist and filling delicious. And the cake came out beautifully.
One of our favorite vendors. He is so full of aloha and is very in the moment. He even teared up when my husband read his vows to me. I highly recommend Rev. Tino.
Definitely our favorite vendor. Eric has a true passion and is totally committed to what he does. He has such a wonderful spirit about him which made us feel completely comfortable. We haven't received our photos yet, but he told us it takes about 8 weeks, which is a lot shorter time than most photographers. This guy is awesome.
This company was wonderful to work with. We couldn't believe how reasonable the cost was becuase the quality of the product was so high. The invitations were the first thing we did for our wedding and this company was very patient with us.
This is a great idea for people that don't necessarily need traditional weddding gifts and would prefer cash gifts. We chose this honeymoon registry where you list all the wonderful activities you'd like to do in Maui and people buy the activities for you. The registry direct deposits the money right into your bank account which was great for us because we got a deposit while we were in Maui - having that extra little cash while on our honeymoon was a treat!
The beach house is a dedicated location for White Orchid Weddings so the only way you can use the beach house if by hiring White Orchid Wedding as your coordinator. That being said, the beach house is the most amazing and magical place to have your wedding ceremony. I simply cannot say enough about this location. We are already planning to go back and renew our vows there in 5 years!
The Seawatch is only 5 minutes from the beach house and it was lovely. We sat outside on the lanai with a gorgeous view. The food was great. The staff was great. They also do ceremonies here and if I hadn't had my heart set on the beachhouse we would have held our ceremony here as well.
