My fiancee and I would like to get married in Hawaii in September. It's going to be just the two of us so very simple, with not much planning needed since there won't be any guests.

 

We are both envisioning a cliff setting overlooking the ocean. Does anyone know of any particular locations that fit this description. Neither of us wants to be in the sand for our wedding. The other option is a garden setting, but a cliff or high bluff is more ideal.

 

Also, I'm thinking about using Merry Maui Weddings to help with the planning. They seem reasonable in price and very professional. Since it's just the two of us, a simple, low-cost wedding is key. Main concerns for us are location and of course, we want great photos to show everyone back home.

 

Any other tips are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I wish it could just be the two of us for our wedding... our families would kill us though!

 

This is suppose to be Maui's "only" wedding cliff site.

I would think along the Road to Hana there might be some spots:

I don't know where this is in Oahu but it looks wonderful. You're not getting married in Oahu but I thought I'd just share the find. I figure that's what you are looking for, and it I just liked the pictures! wink.gif

A really incredible cliff setting is Lava Point at the Ritz-Carlton in Kapalua (which is on Maui)! We are having our wedding there, but we've got too many people so our ceremony will be on a lovely grassy knoll just above the Point. Check out their pictures on their website: Maui Wedding Planners: The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua Weddings. It would work perfectly for your very intimate wedding as well, as they limit the amount of people on the cliff to 8 (I think).

 

The Ritz is expensive, but in our experience with them thus far, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR! The service there simply knocked our socks off, and everything about the resort is peaceful, romantic, and simply stunning.

 

Since cost is a concern, if you didn't want to stay at the hotel (which is having ridiculous deals now that travel is down so much because of the economy), there are much less expensive hotels very close by that you could stay at while still having your ceremony at Lava Point. One in particular that we will probably have our guests at is the Mauian. http://www.mauian.com/accomm.htm

 

Good luck, and happy searching! :)

I must agree with Lisa, The Ritz at Kapalua is BEAUTIFUL!!! It's about 10-15 minutes from all of the "action" so it's very romantic, quiet and lovely!

 

You could always stay there 2 nights and then go somewhere else. We stayed at the Royal Lahaina and it was very beautiful and quiet. I recently looked online (I want to go back) and noticed the Ritz was only about 200-300 more than the other hotels.

We took pictures on a space overlooking our beach wedding. It was a little cliff like. That was just on Kapalua Bay....public area. Not sure if it'd work for you, but you may want to look at it as an option.

 

(the space is actually the green area just over my shoulder. On one side there are these rockly outcroppings that are more dramatic)

Thanks for the tips. We've decided to get married on Po'olenalena beach at sunset. It looks like there are some nice rocky outcrops that will work perfectly. And I've decided to go with Marry Me Maui for the planner. It's just the two of us so it's pretty cut and dry. I'm just super excited that I now finally have a date set (Sept.21) and have our lodging booked. I cannot wait!

A warm congratulations to the both of you! Oh, don't forget to post some of your pictures soon... cheesy.gif

    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
