Maui Brides ~

I have been doing a lot of research on Wedding Venues (as we all have) and have been looking specifically at Southern California, Los Cabos and Maui... more specifically in Maui I am looking at the Olowalu Plantation House, White Orchid House and Maui Hyatt. Does anyone have any information or pictures for these three venues or have any recommendations? I have seen a lot of pictures on websites, but would like to see pictures of real weddings to get more of an idea of what to expect. I have been in contact with Lori Scott who is wonderful and has been extremly helpful, but haven't been to any of the sites to get a personal feel for them.. I am going to have a smaller wedding with 30-40 guests. Any information would be helpful...
Thank you in advance!

Oh, another thing, I think a lot of pictures I found for Olowalu from searching came from couples personal websites or knot pages so you could check that out for pictures!

Sorry I don't have any information. A whole bunch of us are getting married at the Seawatch (reception anyways). I looked into a couple of private estates, but it was outside our budget and our group size did not warrant it (we have 16). Both places look beautiful though! Good luck with your decision. Once that one is made everything is easy.

My wife and I have been there 3 times in the 5yrs that we have been married and Ohau 2x... we love the islands.
good luck on your planning, Im sure your wedding will be amazing!

I have booked my May wedding at the White Orchid Beach House. I fell in love with this location and so far I am really happy with it. With this location you have to use White Orchid Weddings as your coordinators, and like the other private estates EVERYTHING has to be rented. It is definitely starting to cost a lot more then i had hoped, but I just have to keep reminding myself how beautiful our wedding and reception will be. If you have around $12K (on the low end) to spend on a 30-40 person wedding then use a private estate, if you want to keep the budget lower then I suggest using seawatch like some of the other brides.
If you have any specific questions on dealing with WOW so far just PM and I will be happy to share my experience so far!

The White Orchid House is run by "White Orchid Weddings". They are high end...out of my price range but responsive to emails.
For the Olowalu Plantation House-The only down fall is their beach is rocky, not ideal for a "beach wedding". I think they have the ceremony on the lawn.
I had the same issue with finding "real wedding pictures". I looked at photographer websites.
Leah Robb with Island Wedding Memories is very nice, professional and her website is great. She has a photo of her family on the site. Great connections too!
