A wonderful beach setting for weddings. This Maui beach wedding venue is located on Maui’s south shore at the beginning of Wailea. There are two great restaurants fronting this beach making it very convenient to have a dinner reception following the ceremony.
After our original wedding plans were stymied by Covid, we decided at shot notice to be married during our stay on Maui. We were amazed at how easy and enjoyable the whole process was! Kevin was super responsive and helpful, and did a beautiful ceremony for us on Keawakapu Beach. He is a natural at what he does and his joy shines through in his performance. Highly recommended!

Our wedding, on my birthday, March 21, was AWESOME!! Despite being in the middle of a crisis, Kevin was a PRO, and the ceremony went off flawlessly. The sunset pictures turned out to be spectacular! I was nervous about the trip with all that's going on. But I have to say, once we got the ceremony behind us, it was a blessing indeed. Thanks to HW and Kevin for making this birthday of mine, and the day for Maureen, one we will NEVER forget and always cherish. Recommend services to all!! Thank you!!!!

My husband and I were married on the mainland at the county court house. We have pictures at the court house but not worthy of be on the mantel... My husband and i LOVE maui and we have very FOND memories of Maui! So on a last minute decision ( 2 weeks to be exact) my husband and i decided to renew our vows on Maui.... I didn't want to spend a lot of money & do not not know different locations... So i called Hawaii Wedding & Vow Renewal... I called them up, they sent me a contract, they picked out a location Makena - Sugar Beach .... Even the time at 11am was perfect it wasn't too hot and it was at a public beach so no one was out there except us... We wrote our own vows(because we are not religious) and invited a few close friends.... Because my husband wasn't able to walk very far, they arranged for a accessible location on the beach.... The day before we had some unexpected guest that wanted to attend. so i called them the night before and they arranged for extra leis for my guests... This company went ABOVE & BEYOND to accommodate our last minute request of extra leis..... It was PICTURE PERFECT for Ed and I to renew our vows in Maui on October 1, 2019... Now we have a PICTURE perfect photo for our mantel and this year's xmas card.... Thank you Kevin and team at Hawaiian Weddings you guys are AWESOME!!!!
23:37 26 Oct 19
We renewed our vows after 35 years of marriage. The ceremony was spectacular with some of the pictures taken at sunset. We really enjoyed the ceremony with close family and it was very romantic. Kevin did a great job with officiating the ceremony and great pictures afterward. I would definitely recommend this wonderful ceremony to others.
20:28 15 Oct 19
Wonderfully romantic experience. Everything was beautiful and magical. Kevin and staff were also great to provide additional planning aspects! I took all their advise and it was an experience beyond our expectations.
17:19 05 Oct 19
We renewed our vows for our 40th Anniversary and all the people at Hawaii Wedding Company are phenomenal! Kevin made our renewal so very memorable and special, it was amazing!!! Planning from a distance was a bit stressful but I put our day in their hands and trusted what they do and they definitely delivered! I could never thank them enough!!! Would highly recommend all the crew at Hawaii Wedding and Vow Renewal!

We had a wonderful experience getting married in Maui July 2019! Kevin was great! They answered any questions we had a long the way in a timely manner, would definitely recommend.
13:42 22 Jul 19
We renewed our vows on July 15, 2019 and it was an amazing day thanks to Kevin and Hawaii Wedding Vow Renewal. It was easy and stressful from the planning to the actual day. My husband and i felt like we were getting married for the first time. It was sincere and so romantic. We also hired the ukulele musician which was perfect. He sang and played Hawaiian songs. The photos that were taken were very nice too. I would 100% recommend this company!
Mark & Amanda Stemmans
23:23 14 Jul 19
Our family had the most special time with Hawaii Wedding! From the very first phone call when inquiring about our renewal options, we received exceptional customer service. This was our first trip to Maui and we wanted to include our two boys in our vow renewal ceremony. It was our "sweet 16". Kevin and Sara are incredibly professional and kind. We wish that our actual wedding day was this stress free! Hawaii Wedding took care of everything. This experience was unforgettable for our family and we would highly recommend Hawaii Wedding. I'd say YES a thousand times!!! XOXO Love, The Stemmans Family

09:59 28 Apr 19
Thanks to Kristina and the team, we had a wonderful wedding / honeymoon! The minister and the photographer were great and made our wedding such a special one for us!Thanks a lot for your service, the organization and for answering all my questions up to the wedding! I hope that many couples will enjoy a beautiful wedding in the future with your service!
14:07 16 Apr 19
My wife and I had a great time at our wedding renewal held at Sugar Beach Cove. Kristina did an incredible job with answering all of my questions and making me feel comfortable about the ceremony. Her response time to any of my inquiries was within 24 hours and typically same day. Kristina did a great job leading the ceremony and the addition of the ukulele musician was something that I was glad I added.If I had any suggestions, it would be that the ceremony would have been planned a little later (maybe 30 minutes later) so that it would have been closer the sunset. However, that is only a very small suggestion. Overall, I was very pleased with the process and would certainly recommend this group to anybody looking to celebrate their special occasion.
14:18 13 Apr 19
Extremely accommodating and professional. They managed the right balance of guidance without being Highly recommend!
03:58 07 Apr 19
My amazing husband completely surprised me with a vow renewal in Maui for our 35th anniversary. Even though we had never met Kristina , she was so warm and invested in making our ceremony meaningful and memorable. The beachfront, sunset setting was magical, the traditional Hawaiian vows were simple but profound and the lei ritual felt like a full-circle complement to the exchange of rings we'd done so many years ago. Since this was a surprise, I wasn't in on the planning, but my husband said the folks at Hawaii Wedding and Vow Renewal could not have been more helpful. Highly recommend!
00:15 21 Mar 19
Kevin did our wedding 10 years ago and just did our 10 year anniversary, vow renewal. They are the best and we will be back in another 10 years. Thank so much!!
23:59 05 Mar 19
Hawaii Wedding was excellent! As probably most couples getting married on one of the islands, we were from out of town wanting to exchange our vows in Maui - whether on the beach or at another venue. Hawaii Wedding was very accommodating and super helpful! I literally didn't have to do a thing! They scheduled the meeting with the marriage license person, offered assistance with location, style, even scheduling hair and make-up locally for me! They did a great job making sure that we have everything taken care of and eliminating any stress associated with such important occasion, usually stressful for the bride and groom. Our minister was wonderful, did exactly what we wanted, thank you Brian for the beautiful ceremony! The day before our wedding date, it was all day downpour! Kristina called me to make sure I am not freaking out and assured me that even if it rains on our day, they can move our location from the beach to a covered area, which was comforting! Luckily the sun came out the next day and we had a beautiful ceremony! Thank you Hawaii Wedding for making our special day romantic and so memorable!
16:27 23 Feb 19
Thank you to everyone at Hawaii Wedding for an amazing ceremony and beautiful photos. The entire team was responsive and friendly. Our ceremony went smoothly thanks to Brian and Kevin. It was everything Michael and I wanted! Thank you for the wonderful memories!
06:25 25 Jan 19
Loved the ceremony
20:29 21 Jan 19
My wife and I renewed our vows of 15 years in Maui, our ceremony, selected beach, weather that morning with sunrise and Kevin our officiant, was the perfect combination.
21:54 03 Jan 19
Max and I dreamed of a Hawaii beach wedding from the day we became engaged. We couldn't have been more pleased with how our dream came true with the help of Hawaii Weddings. They handled everything with such professionalism and aloha. Exchanging our vows on a beautifully stunning beach was amazing! Thank you to everyone at Hawaii Weddings for making our wedding day so fantastic! Much aloha to you! P.S. We'll be back for our renewal vows someday 😉
02:57 29 Dec 18
The most beautiful location. Kristina and Kevin are amazing! Thank you for the most memorable day! The photos are spectacular...I recommend you highly!!!!!!!
19:59 28 Dec 18
I cannot say enough about this company. Being from far away I was initially a bit nervous. They put me at ease through their experience, good reviews and kindness. They answered all my questions and explained the best places to stay on Maui and the best beaches to hold the ceremony. Kevin's pictures of our ceremony made my wife tear up, thanks Kevin. You captured the event and we have a friend who want to use your services next year. ( maybe this will give us an excuse to come see your beautiful island again. As you say in Hawaii, MAHALO!
01:22 28 Dec 18
Henry and I were so pleased with our experience with Hawaii Wedding. Kristina handled the details seamlessly, and our Officiant was caring and professional. The beach location was stunning. We just love our photos, Kevin is an incredibly talented photographer. We highly recommend them.
18:11 27 Dec 18
Was very disappointed in our ceremony espescially the money that we spent. My wife and I was told that it was easy going which wasn’t the case. Thought that the beach would be quartered off for our ceremony so that we wouldn’t have any interrupted people in our pictures, which it wasn’t. Thought that we would have had a designated spot for our ceremony. Instead they found a piece of sand and said will do it right here. When I had asked to do a walk through they said it would cost an extra 200 bucks. Which is preposterous!!! Thought that they would have like a circle of flowers for our ceremony for this beautiful event which didn’t happen. When talking with these people about the ceremony it was very vague. Pictures from the photographer were ok but thought they could have been better. Would not recommend. Beautiful place to get married but not worth the price of the packages.
22:11 25 Dec 18
12/25/18. I am writing an addendum to my previous review to address the owner. I did not need you to advise me of any other flights. I have been traveling to Hawaii for 20 years. I booked a specific flight, with a specific airline, at a specific time for a reason. That was the flight I wanted and it suited my finances at the time. Of course I could have rebooked on another airline...at times I didn't want and at a cost I didn't want. What a stupid thing to say. This has nothing to do with getting my way, it has to do with accommodating someone within a short timeframe for something beyond their control. You chose not to and that's your right. But don't be so childish as to try to belittle someone for being upset that their dream vow renewal was cancelled for reasons beyond their control and you are the only business who chose to refuse a refund!Very disappointing encounter with Hawaii Weddings. I booked with them for a vow renewal in May 2019 just over 2 weeks ago. On Thursday this past week I found out that Hawaiian Airlines changed the flights we were scheduled to take by over 3 hours, making the trip impossible. This was obviously a factor beyond my control. I was refunded by the airline and the hotel, but Hawaii Weddings still charged their "nonrefundable" fee of $150. Being a business owner myself, I understand why nonrefundable fees are used. They cover the business when people randomly change their mind. However, given the fact this was something beyond my control, and booked only 2 weeks prior, it would have been the right thing to do to refund the entire fee, as I would have done if it were my customer. Obviously be careful when you are depending on an airline to get you to Maui for the wedding, since you never know when things will change, and Hawaii Weddings won't make any accommodations for unforeseen circumstances.
20:39 12 Dec 18
From the moment we contacted Hawaii Wedding, I knew we had contacted the right place. Just the two of us on the beach at 8:30 in the morning was so calming and magical. Kevin performed the ceremony and did our photo's and it was perfect! Thank you for making our day so special. It was exactly what we wanted!
13:52 08 Dec 18
It was exactly what I wanted! A small, stress-free vow renewal ceremony with our family and the backdrop of a perfect beach sunset! Thank you all for the beautiful ceremony, photos, and especially the memories!
20:33 06 Dec 18
With only 10 days to plan, I emailed Hawaii weddings and Kristina called me within an hour. From there on it was a breeze. Kristina was very helpful with all the information needed. Kevin was awesome with the ceremony and the photography. The beach chosen was absolutely beautiful and amazing!! They made our special day even more special. We can't thank you enough!! 11-20-18
