When planning a destination Wedding in Maui, there is plenty to choose from in terms of location but few places epitomize the awe-inspiring appeal of a Maui wedding better than the Olowalu Plantation House. The place simply oozes romance, ease, and so much beauty it’s almost hard to wrap your head around it. Blair and Nick were one of the couples who decided to say their I do’s at Olowalu and looking back at it, it couldn’t have been a more perfect day.
The picture-perfect Olowalu and its surroundings is a playground for any wedding planner – how can you not let your creative imagination run wild, when everywhere you look, you are met with paradise-like beauty? Starting from the historic plantation house, the manicured lawn stretches through an alluring tree grove that soon meets the picturesque oceanfront complete with swaying palm trees in the soft sun and gentle ocean breeze.
Tropical ease and beautiful sophistication were the defining themes in Blair and Nick’s intimate wedding. The wedding arch, designed by Bella Bloom Maui, included monstera leaves with contrasting tropical torch ginger flowers, and the father of the bride walked his daughter down an aisle scattered with beautiful white flower petals. Both Blair and Nick also wore traditional Hawaiian leis.
The gorgeous al fresco dining setup was created nearby by Inspiration Events Hawaii – a romantic draped canopy with glamorous chandeliers and soft pastel pink florals. Love & Water perfectly captured the romantic ambiance in pictures; when people say that love is in the air, surely it looks like this?
As the sun slowly shifted towards the horizon creating the most beautiful pink hue, it was time for the first dance. When the whole wedding and reception take place outdoors, as it often does in a Maui destination wedding, it’s essential to think about how to make each space unique. Rows and rows of lovely twinkle lights surrounding the dance floor created the most romantic feel and everyone’s eyes lit up as they watched the couple swaying to the sound of music.
