An Elegant Wedding in Paradise

Take your vows on the grounds of a private oceanfront estate in Lahaina, Maui. This gorgeous family home offers a romantic, intimate setting for wedding parties of two to one hundred guests. Each wedding can be designed to suite your tastes, your budget and your party size. We are here to support you, and offer as much or as little involvement as you wish.

Lahaina Oceanfront Wedding Estate has a uniquely special location — from the elegant back porch and lawn, Lanai and Molokai can be seen across the aquamarine ocean channel, complete with sailboats and seasonal breeching whales!

For an oceanfront wedding at the golden sunset hour or in the blush of morning, the flat grassy lawn and horizon sand beach are lined with twinkle-lit palm trees and tiki torches for a very Hawaiiana backdrop.

Another romantic ceremonial site is the spacious white railing porch. Chairs can be set up in a traditional theater style either on the porch itself or on the surrounding lawn. Tents and arbors can be added as desired or needed. For standing room only, a scattering of tall cocktail tables will add a touch of elegance and celebration.

An additional ceremonial space, and great back-up in rare rainy weather (for bride's peace of mind), is the vaulted entryway of the main house with its curved staircase, floor to ceiling oceanview windows, and French doors opening onto the covered back lanai. Light, bright, and breezy, this cool space is as close to being on the beach as you can get from inside! And, remember brides, a little light sprinkling means beautiful rainbows!

The bridal procession may enter from the front walk, through the lushly landscaped courtyard lined with lanterns, up the front porch and into the main room, or enter down the curved staircase (excellent for classic bridal photographs), or walk through the vaulted entry, passing through open French doors onto the back porch and down the steps onto the ocean lawn. The bride may choose to step from her curtained ocean-view dressing room, perched above the heart-shaped pool and walk pass floating candles and blossoms to meet her groom. And last but not least, a dramatic bridal entrance by torch-lit canoe, paddled over from Mala wharf and pulling up on our pocket sandy beach, could make a never-forgotten impression on the groom and guests!

How about serenading the bride from the "Romeo & Juliet" second floor balcony? A perfect stage for a Hawaiian conch blower, an instrumental combo, or a solo guitarist can also be the picturesque platform from which to shower the bride with rose petals and pikake blossoms, or line up the flower girls with bubble blowers. Later on in the evening the bride can toss her bouquet from here.

Float tropical blossoms and candles in the heart-shaped pool or cover with our custom-made heart-shaped dance floor, line with votives candles, and dance your first dance under the stars. The waterfall jacuzzi can likewise be transformed into a small stage for musicians or round presentation table for the wedding cake.

Catering the reception is made easy with a large staging kitchen opening onto the back deck, from which to pour the champagne, prep the crudités or keep the entrée warm. Full sit-down dinner? Imagine white clothed banquet tables lining the lawn for fifty or butler service for an intimate table of six under a flower strewn canopy open to the beach breezes. If you can dream it, we can create it!

Dressing rooms for the bride and groom each feature private baths and separate outside access from the main home. An additional guest bathroom is located just inside the main entry. A variety of bed and breakfasts and condo rentals are also located nearby. Please ask about our wedding planning services and specially priced packages.
