Maui’s Top 5 Wedding Venues

In my 15 years as a Maui wedding cinematographer, I’ve had the privilege of filming at all of the best wedding venues Maui has to offer. I’ve filmed weddings at small beach locations to elegant multi-day resort weddings and everything in between. Here are my top 5 Maui wedding venues:

  1. Olowalu Plantation House
  2. Haiku Mill
  3. Merriman’s Kapalua
  4. Four Seasons Resort
  5. White Orchid Beach House

Olowalu Plantation House, Maui Wedding Venue

This private Maui wedding venue encompasses all that a destination Maui wedding is all about. This historic private estate located on Maui’s West Coast, located 4 miles south of Lahaina. Olowalu has a lot of ancient history with the Hawaiians. It’s a private estate, your wedding day will just be your closest family and friends without other guests like at a resort wedding.  It rarely rains, I’ve filmed here more than any other Maui wedding venue and in the 15 years I’ve been a wedding videographer here on Maui, I’ve only had about 3 weddings where rain was any kind of issue. It’s convenient, the location is close, meaning you can get ready for your wedding day in the house, have the ceremony and reception right on the lawn all right there. This not only makes it easier for your wedding guests but your wedding vendors and of course, the bride and groom. It’s beautiful, right on the water with palm trees, green grass and awesome landscapes that make every shot stunning. And being a Maui wedding videographer, I love to fly my drone and Olowalu is the prefect place for epic drone shots. In my opinion there’s no better place on Maui to have your sunset wedding photography and wedding videography than on the pier right next to this estate. You have personal control over all aspects of your wedding day. Most wedding venues (especially resorts) require their coordinators and vendors but with Olowalu you can pick and choose all the vendors you would like to have at your wedding rather than the limited list of preferred vendors most Maui wedding venues have. Be sure to book Olowalu Plantation House well in advance for this Maui wedding venue is booked up quite far into the future. I know you will be thrilled to have your dream Maui wedding day at the beautiful and historic Olowalu Plantation House.

Merriman's Kapalua, Maui Wedding Venue

Merriman’s Kapalua is my favorite wedding venue on the North West side of Maui.  It’s a renowned restaurant that features amazing views, farm-to-table cuisine and top notch service and it’s also an AMAZING wedding venue.

Whether you are doing a full buy-out of the entire wedding venue or an intimate wedding celebration, this is one of the top wedding venues here on Maui. It’s beautifully located right on the water for epic sunset photography and videography with the bride and groom, it also is an incredible place to drone, showing off Maui’s beautiful ocean coast line.

The mixture of elegant decor and stunning views make this one of my favorite Maui wedding venues to shoot a wedding film. Also the coordinators at Merriman’s are really professional and their list of preferred Maui wedding vendors are the industry’s best in the island.

Four Seasons Resort, Maui Wedding Venue

When getting married at a resort in  Wailea, Maui, I recommend The Four Seasons.

It is one of Maui’s top rated resort wedding venues and from my wedding video you can tell why. This elegant wedding venue is located on in Wailea, Maui’s South Shore. It has beautiful Maui coastline, and great locations for any wedding day from small intimate wedding elopements to incredible full size ballroom wedding celebrations. As a Maui wedding videographer, I especially love the beautiful decor that the professional wedding coordinators at the Four Seasons design. It’s also not a crowded or huge resort making your wedding day feel like just your closest family and friends and logistically it’s convenient without a lot of walking, making wedding videography and photography easier for you and for your wedding vendors.

Another reason to pick Four Seasons Wailea, Maui is that it is located on the dry side of the island so the likelihood that your destination wedding is rained out is very low. The beautiful decor, gorgeous wedding location, coastal venues, ocean, and professional service make Maui’s Four Seasons Wailea one of my all time favorite wedding resorts to make a stunning Maui wedding film! If you are looking at having your wedding at this venue please email us and we will connect you to our favorite coordinators at the Four Seasons!

White Orchid Beach House, Maui Wedding Venue

This gorgeous private wedding estate is located in Makena, Maui’s South Shore. There are a lot of reasons why The White Orchid Beach House is one of my all time favorite wedding venues. First of all, it’s a private wedding estate, so you will ONLY have your closest family and friends at your destination wedding, not other guests (like at your typical resort wedding). This location on Maui is typically dry, though I always recommend having a tent for your wedding day just in case, but this is one of the drier sides of Maui.

The coastline is beautiful, being a Maui wedding film maker, I love to fly my drone and this is one of the best wedding venues to do so. The stunning Maui coast line, ocean waves, palm trees and light make for an exceptional location to capture incredible drone and land shots. The lighting in the house for the bride’s room is gorgeous and flattering too. There’s a beautiful white room for the bride to get dressed in before here wedding ceremony, and it has great even light showering in from the big window.

The White Orchid Beach house is ran by White Orchid Weddings, one of Maui’s top wedding coordinating companies, they also have the BEST wedding vendors on their preferred list so you will have the best videography, photography, DJ, catering and other wedding vendors Maui has to offer. This makes planning your day easy and stress free.

The convenience of the White Orchid Beach house, beauty, location, light and a team of vendors makes this one of my all time favorite wedding venues on Maui to film.

If you are interested in getting married here please contact me and I will connect you with one of their top wedding coordinators.
