Maui Beach Wedding, The Perfect Natural Setting for A Sand Ceremony?

Maui Beach Wedding, The Perfect Natural Setting for A Sand Ceremony?

Without a doubt, Maui is the Best Natural Setting for the Unity Sand Ceremony!

The Unity Sand Ceremony is gaining popularity, and a Maui wedding or vow renewal service is the perfect setting. The ceremony involves the bride and groom pouring different colors of sand into a unity jar or vase, which already contains a foundation of white or buff colored sand. Destination Wedding Sand Ceremony Exchange are perfect for Beach Weddings on Maui. A unity sand ceremony exchange image.Symbolizing the eternal union of the two, the sand ceremony becomes even more meaningful when the wedding takes place on or near a sandy Maui beach.

Feeling the sand beneath their feet while pouring the colorful sand crystals, the couple feels deeply connected to the surrounding natural beauty. The sand seems to stretch eternally toward the ocean, and they become part of it. The sound of the waves rushing to embrace the shore will echo in their memory for years to come, whenever they gaze upon the unity vase keepsake from their Maui wedding ceremony.

From a practical standpoint, the sand ceremony may even better serve as a replacement for the candle ceremony at an outdoor Maui Beach Wedding location. It doesn’t take much of a breeze to snuff out a Maui beach wedding location at the Olowalu Plantation Maui Wedding House.candle – not the kind of thing a couple wants to worry about in the middle of the wedding or vow renewal services. Fortunately, the sand is protected from the elements by the unity jar.

Using colorful sand during a Maui wedding ceremony is also very natural because Mother Nature has painted Maui beaches with a surprising palette. The newlyweds may see some of these beaches during their Hawaiian honeymoon.

Perhaps the most unexpected are the black sand beaches. These can be seen at Waianapanapa (Wy-uh-nah-pa-nah-pa) State Park along the famous Road to Hana. They are formed when lava flows into the ocean, where it cools and hardens. The rhythmic pounding of the waves smashes the pieces onto the shore, creating sand from volcanic rock and volcanic glass. Standing on this luxurious stretch of black obsidian grains, a person can really feel connected to the mysterious spirituality of Maui. Sharing the experience with someone they love is profound.

Also near Hana is a red sand beach. Secluded Kaihalulu (Ky-ha-loo-loo) Beach is a hidden treasure. The deep red of the sand contrasts with the blue of the ocean and the green of the surrounding trees like a treasure chest of brightly colored gems. The red hue comes from iron in the cinders from the nearby cinder cone. Cinder cones are typical volcanic formations on Maui. They occur when lava is blown out of a vent, an opening on the surface of the Earth. Fragments fall to the ground and build up around the vent. Nature’s power ultimately provides the beauty of the red sand beach.

Even more unusual is the Hawaiian green sand beach. Papakolea Beach gets its olive green hue from the mineral olivine found in the cinders from Pu’u o Mahana cinder cone. The ocean washes it onto the shore of this beach, which is surrounded by rugged terrain.

These remarkable colors take nothing away from the beauty of the more familiar white and golden sand beaches. These are part of the image people usually have in mind when they picture Maui. These more neutral colors just seem to anchor picturesque scenes of blue ocean and a flaming sunset sky, just as the white or buff sand in the unity jar establishes a foundation for the brilliant union of colors.

While on a Maui beach, many newlyweds write their initials and a heart in the sand, only to watch as it disappears with the tide.

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
