Where Are the Best Places to Get Married on Maui?
Where Are the Best Places to Get Married on Maui? There are many locations and venues to select. Most couples want a beautiful beach setting, while some prefer a garden setting or a church.
Maui has more miles of beaches than any of the other Hawaiian Islands,
Maui’s beaches are renown for their beauty, simplicity, and romance. Looking out at the sunset while you say you vows to your soon-to-be husband or wife is a dream. For non-beach locations, click here.
At Hawaii Wedding and Vow renewal, we have planned over 10,000 weddings (literally, since 1994). Almost everyone prefers a beach setting and we have our favorites.
Poolenalena Beach in southwest Maui is one of the best places to get married.
All beaches we a public in Hawaii, so with a nice long beach at Po’olenlena, we can walk down the beach a little and wedding couples can have more intimacy of their ceremony.
It’s a great venue for sunset and early morning ceremonies. Morning is popular with the blues turquoises popping out for the photos.
There are no nearby hotels and there are many scenic spots for photo opportunities after the ceremony. It is one of the least crowed beaches on the island. See photos and video here
Another popular venue location is Wailea Beach
Located in southwest Maui fronting the world-famous Waldorf Astoria Grand Wailea. Brides have all their salon services here at the best salon on the island ( mani, pedi, hair design and make up). They also have a changing room for the bride ( and bridesmaids if any) to use. Then simply walk outside and getting married on Wailea Beach.
After the ceremony and sunset photography, just walk back up to the resort and dine at one of their two 5 star retardants. Many couples like Wailea Beach as everything takes place at one location. Simple, elegant, easy and fun. See photos and details of this location and Maui wedding package here
Sugar beach is also a favorite.
It’s great especially for those staying in Lahaina, Kaanapali or Kapalua. The beaches in those areas are small and very crowded. See Sugar Beach here.
Makena Cove Beach
Located in Makena (just a few minutes south of Kihei and Wailea) is great for a morning wedding. This small pictuteresque Makena cove beach is very popular. With lava rocks galore, and the volcano island Kahoolawe in the background this beach is best for daytime weddings.
Sunset weddings at Makena Cove can be quite crowed so we recommend other beeches if couples want a sunset ceremony.
Makena Surf Sunset, Makena
This small beautiful beach in Southwest MAui, ( Wailea/Makena) offers easy parking and accessibility and has gorgeous sunsets. We recommend this beach for those who have elderly in their group or disability situations.
There are so many nice beaches on Maui for your ceremony. If you have one in mind let us know. Some couples want to get married near their hotel or condo and that is a good option too, as long as the beach there is not too crowded. The last thing coupes want is a beach-going family just a few feet away making noise. So, since we have done over 10,000 weddings, we are very familiar with the best beaches on Maui.
For those not wanting a beach ceremony, we like Kula Botanical Gardens, located on the lower Maui mountain volcano called “Haleakala”, (translated this means “House of the rising sun”) The ocean views are awesome and they have 2 different gazebos to use for the ceremony. A few years ago National Geographic named Kula Botanical Gardens one of the top botanical gardens in the USA. See Kula Botanical Gardens here
Want a church wedding? The best church on Maui we like is also located on the slopes of Haleakala. This is a historic church, and the ocean views for the photography after the ceremony are amazing. It is also so cute inside the church, you must see the pictures and video. See Maui’s best church here.
