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 maui-oceanfront-gay-wedding-couple-IMG_8266.jpgwedding 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 resort’s tables, linen and chairs to reduce wedding equipment rental costs.

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!Sunset wedding photographs of a same sex couple after thier Maui beach wedding in Kihei.

A Maui wedding arch formed by friends and family of the gay couple just before getting married in Kihei.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.

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
