Are you considering a Maui wedding? Whether you are seeking a location for a same sex wedding on Maui like the loving couples wedding featured below or planning a traditional wedding, choosing a Maui wedding location is one of the most important planning decisions to accomplish!
Securing the wedding venue ensures the location venue will be available on the date you prefer while enabling you to plan and arrange other wedding and reception details. Youll be able to begin acquiring and assembling personal touches to enhance the ambiance of the wedding style to create a customized wedding package beginning with the venue. The SunSeeker condo is ideal for same sex couples seeking a south Maui wedding location with onsite guest accommodations available. A nicely landscaped private courtyard large enough to accommodate the wedding ceremony and reception afterwards eliminates multiple venue fees. With the beach adjacent to the property plenty of opportunity exists for beachfront wedding photographs. The gas grills are available for onsite cooking and are ideal for wedding food stations as the catering menu below demonstrates. Warning: You may get hungry when you review the catered wedding reception menu below.
While the grooms had done quite a bit of research with a do it yourself wedding planning approach; we collaborated with our featured grooms to create their custom inclusive Maui wedding package while maximizing the wedding budget for memorable and fun evening. Keep reading for the wedding reception menu with more details of their inclusive Maui wedding package as an example of just how affordable same sex Maui weddings can be!
Though the couple originally planned on an beachfront wedding ceremony on the beach adjacent to the Sunseeker condominiums, with unusually high winds on the morning of the wedding the couple opted to move the wedding ceremony to the courtyard of the Sunseeker condos in Kihei. After the ceremony, an impromptu photo session captured spectacular sunset beach wedding memories before returning for the catered wedding reception in the courtyard of the Sunseeker. The staff allowed the wedding couple to utilize the entire courtyard during the evening for their private wedding with reception following. 14 wedding guest attendees stayed onsite for their accommodations. An added savings advantage was the ability to use the resorts tables, linen and chairs to reduce wedding equipment rental costs.

In addition to reducing wedding equipment rental fees by supplying their own string lighting and tiki torches to enhance the island ambiance for the wedding, the grooms also purchased and supplied the alcohol for their Maui wedding bar service. After a traditional champagne toast celebrating the newlyweds, our supplied Maui county licensed bartender served beer, wine and a signature cocktail to wedding guest attendees. Though we provide full service wedding planning, we equally enjoy working with couples preferring a more hands on do it yourself wedding planning approach to provide the most affordable wedding packages available on Maui!
A uniquely personal touch was arranging guests to form a tunnel/arch. As the grooms departed the master wedding suite they wound their way through the arch the guests had formed and were able to stop for personal hugs before reaching the wedding ceremony site. Following my direction, the resort staff arranged seating with an aisle for the couple to walk down as they approached the wedding ceremony. Afterwards, the resort staff combined with my professional catering staff to quickly re-arrange the seating around the reception tables while the professional wedding photographers captured the beach photo session.
