Save Money on Maui Beach Wedding Packages

  1. Get Married Where You or Wedding Guests Stay – Choose a wedding location where you or your guests are staying. Using the grounds of the accommodations where you or guests are staying often eliminates additional wedding venue fees. One of our favorite catering locations on Maui, the El Dorado A North Kaanapali beach wedding.cabana on North Kaanapali beach is an ideal location to host a beachfront wedding with a catered wedding reception dinner following. The grass area djacent to the beachfront cabana is a beautiful area for the wedding ceremony before the wedding reception in the cabana. Your wedding can’t be any closer to the beach than the El Dorado cabana! Accommodations at the Outrigger El Dorado offer beautiful modern guest rooms on the Kaanapali Golf Course and use of the cabana requires a minimum length stay. Just north of the Sheraton at Black Rock, the cabana is only a short walk from the Kaanapali resorts and we are just up the hill making it easy to provide catering for weddings at the El Dorado cabana. Or, check out our third suggestion below for another idea for hosting an oceanfront wedding at a private estate on Maui.A Kaanapali wedding at the Outrigger Eldorado Cabana.
  2. Coordinate the Wedding with a Catering Chef on Maui – Other than the ceremony itself and perhaps the spectacular Maui wedding location, the food served at your wedding reception will be remembered more than just about anything else. Serve memorable food at your wedding in paradise and your guests will be delighted! To save money on Maui weddings, we include FREE wedding planning along with catered wedding receptions and do not mark up for wedding service provider referrals or recommendations. In many cases, we arrange for or supply wedding equipment rentals and decorations or suggest the best wedding service providers to cater to your vision. Prior to opening my Kaanapali restaurant, as an executive chef at some of the largest resorts in the world, I (Chef Jorgensen) planned and catered events and weddings around the world. Use my expertise to create a destination wedding on Maui
  3. Wedding Food Stations – All beach weddings are only permitted a limited amount of time on the beach, you’ll need to find another location for the reception after the beach wedding ceremony. Avoid the costs of a catered wedding reception with servers and sit down dinner service. Instead, reduce wedding costs while providing wedding guests opportunity to be involved by using wedding food stations or chef action stations. A professional Maui chef personally prepares a delicious course while talking story with the wedding guests or answering cooking questions and providing culinary tips. We recommend using a few Dancing at the oceanfront private estate wedding reception in Lahaina.wedding food stations to compliment catered buffet wedding menus with a personal service touch as food is prepared for each guests.
  4. Don’t Get Married on a Beach in Maui – Instead of planning of a toes in the sand wedding, consider a private beachfront wedding venue or a wedding venue adjacent to the ocean. All the benefits of a beach wedding are available! Imagine a wedding with breathtaking sunsets for stunning wedding photographs complete with the sound of the surf while wedding guests dance the night away at the wedding reception. An oceanfront wedding might be the answer since it’s the best of a Maui wedding without the beach wedding permits and restrictions. One such oceanfront wedding location in Lahaina is the White House with accommodations, a heart shaped pool and a location for an oceanfront wedding ceremony with a reception dinner following. The private estate oceanfront wedding venue accommodates up to 60 wedding attendees. Reserve the vacation rental and get married onsite without additional wedding venue fees.Dinner table setting for a catered wedding in Lahaina at the White House on Front Street.

CJ’s Kaanapali Diner Review

My daughter and I visited Maui a couple of weeks ago and came to your restaurant 3 times. I just wanted to thank you for your willingness to meet our gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free requirements. We loved being able to eat out safely and wish we had a CJ’s at home! I just wrote you a stellar review on Trip Advisor. Hope you have a wonderful rest of the summer!

CJ’s Maui Restaurant Review

Wonderful for a Sunday Brunch since you can order breakfast until 11:00am! Had a ‘custom’ 3 ingredient omelette (I chose mushrooms, feta and spinach) with nicely crunchy on the outside and soft inside home potatoes, yummy. Hubby had the pancakes with fresh fruit! These are light fluffy slightly sweet batter pancakes, not those heavy bland ones (OK I admit it, I had to have a few bites of his breakfast…) Service was fast and friendly :0). The menu is EXTENSIVE, we live here and love it!

CJ’s Deli and Diner Maui Restaurant Review

Fact: CJ’s Maui onion soup will melt your face off it’s so good. Best I’ve ever had. It gets 20 stars.
Alas, it’s not on the menu every day… But when my fiancee and I went this past summer and were lucky to meet Chef CJ in person and mentioned that we had been thinking about the onion soup since the last time we visited two years earlier, he was kind enough to put it on the next day’s menu. We went back the following day and ordered it, and it was amazing, just as we had remembered. Another fact: the onion soup at CJ’s is better than the onion soup at Mama’s Fish House (and at like 1/4th of the price). Really. It’s that good. Part of me wants to reverse engineer CJ’s onion soup recipe, quit my job, and make millions selling onion soup to the mainland masses! (or: CJ, wanna make a deal?)
I think that the loco moco gravy is made from the same goodness. So that’s great too. The potato salad is tasty as well.
The to-go lunch plate is respectable.

Maui Chef CJ Prepares Mushroom Soup for Kaanapali Restaurant Guest

On a previous visit to Maui, I had the most delicious mushroom soup at CJ’s Deli and Diner in Kaanapali. When I arrived in Maui this week, I emailed the restaurant and asked what day they might have the soup. The owner and chef, Christian Jorgensen (CJ), promptly replied even though he was on vacation in Vegas. He gave me a number to call to check on the soup of the day. Then when he returned to Maui on Friday, he emailed me to let me know he would have the soup for me on Saturday. When I got there, he was so friendly and the soup was even more scrumptious than I had remembered. I really appreciated how valued he made me feel as a customer.

Good Morning, My wife and I spent last week in Maui. Your early bird special was the best. After we found you, we ate breakfast there every morning. You had two regular coffees that we just loved.

CJ’s Maui Restaurant Customer Comments on CJ’s Private Luau in her Blog

Aloha, Just wanted to let you know that this post was up last Friday and it will be included (linked) with all of our Hawaii properties. Thank you both for excellent service. You made our trip to Maui very memorable! Feel free to comment on the post. It’s always good to have additional information and your input.

Aloha, We were in to see you many times during our stay last month in Ka’anapali, couple of things for you:
Need to order some more of your CJ’s roasted Kona Coffee. I see it’s not yet on your website, only the Maui Coffee Co. stuff. We ran out last weekend and are having withdrawls, please help!! Need 2 bags urgently!!
Secondly, your claim about having the best corned beef hash on the island. I think you’ve understated this because it’s the best I’ve had any where in the world! And that covers a lot of ground as I’ve been to every continent multiple times. Just the best anywhere, period!! Don’t suppose you would have that for delivery to Indiana would you? Maybe by the pound(s)?
Great people and even better food, Mahalo CJ’s. Seriously though, please let me know about that coffee. How do we get some ordered and shipped to Indiana?

​CJ’s Deli & Diner Rocks! Been here several times while visiting Maui – each time we tried different meals and each time we LOVED the food, service and atmosphere. Only suggestion would be to provide regular dinner napkins along with this paper type – because we’re messy!

Aloha and Mahalo from Detroit
