So you want to get married on Maui? First, let us say a hearty congratulations! Finding the love of your life is no small feat. Maui is a lovely place for a wedding. While we aren’t wedding experts, we are frequent guests to weddings and can help you out by pointing you in the direction of some of the coolest and prettiest wedding locations on Maui. From there, you may want to enlist the help of a professional. If you google it, you’ll find plenty of Maui wedding planners. OK, we’re going to put this list in alphabetical order and we’ll include links on where to do further research. We tried to choose different types of venues… beach, nature, chapel, old school charm and combos of everything.
For a full-service wedding in a chapel, there’s no more romantic setting than the Wailea Seaside Chapel on the grounds of the Grand Wailea resort. Covering everything from clergy to perform the event, a musician, a photographer and a wedding planner, the Grand Wailea takes some of the stress out of your big day. The package also includes a complimentary room for the marrying couple and spa treatment on the day after the wedding. The photo above is of the chapel. (Grand Wailea)
If you’re looking for a Maui wedding that doesn’t scream “MAUI WEDDING,” the Haiku Mill may be your answer. Located upcountry, so not near the ocean, on a lush, green, 150-year old plantation, Haiku Mill provides old world charm in a gorgeous setting. Entering Haiku Mill’s property is like walking into a garden oasis. Step away from society and into a setting where there’s only one thing happening in the world, your wedding. The pictures have to be seen to believed. (Haiku Mill)
Hale O Aloha (The House of Aloha) on Sugar Beach
Built specifically for weddings and events on Kihei’s Sugar Beach, Hale O Aloha may be new to the wedding scene, but it’s quickly built an outstanding reputation. The venue includes a grand ballroom that holds up to 200 guests, a restaurant quality kitchen and even a private bridal suite. The outdoor area is large enough for a tent and an additional 150 guests. Sugar Beach itself is 2.5 miles of sandy beach. So a nice sunset stroll with your family and friends is a nice built-in getaway if things get stressful. That never happens at weddings, right? One other aspect of this location that can’t be overlooked is its proximity to all of Kihei’s rental condos. The venue is a short Uber or Lyft ride away. (Sugar Beach Events)
Olowalu Plantation House
Conveniently located on beautiful ocean front property in Lahaina, across the street from Leoda’s Kitchen and Pie Shop (convenient!), the Olowalu Plantation House has everything you need for a dream wedding/reception. The house itself provides full rooms for changing clothes, plus bathroom and kitchen facilities. You’ll still need a caterer as the kitchen is not licensed for commercial cooking, but your caterer can use it to warm up foods and keep things chilled in the refrigerator. Outside, the house has a beautiful, covered lanai overlooking the ocean. There’s room on the grounds for a tent. The Olowalu Plantation House is one of the most popular wedding venues on Maui.

This one will take a little work for all involved, but as far as exchanging vows in a unique location, Twin Falls is a great place to do it! It requires a mile-long walk/hike to the Twin Falls, but once there, you have a beautiful cove with a pretty incredible backdrop for photos. The water is shallow, so saying “I do’s” knee deep in the water is not only incredibly romantic, but something no one in your wedding party will ever forget. Twin Falls is technically on the Road to Hana, but it’s only a couple of miles outside of Paia Town. So, exchanging vows at the waterfall, then returning to town for drinks at Charley’s or Rock and Brews makes for a fun and memorable Maui wedding day! (Twin Falls)
