Tips to Make Maui Wedding Venue Decisions Easier

Tips to Make Maui Wedding Venue Decisions Easier

You’re getting married WHERE? A Maui Destination Wedding!!

You are engaged and made a momentous decision to get married on Maui! Your friends and family are thrilled but wondering how they will coordinate tickets, hotel rooms, rental cars, and requested dates off work! You are wondering how many people will actually come to witness this incredible day in your life.

I was born in Denmark. When planning my Chicago wedding, I remember wondering how many of my family and friends would fly to the United States to celebrate my special day. I was pleasantly surprised twenty Danes were at my wedding reception proudly waving our red and white Danish flag and sharing shots of aquavit with the mostly American crowd. Destination weddings can be very successful and fun for everyone. My bride and I even embarked on a commune honeymoon with our family.

Now that you have made your decision to have a destination wedding on Maui you will need to secure a wedding ceremony location, accommodations for your traveling families and wedding guests, a rehearsal dinner location and finally the wedding reception venue. Many people use their frequent flyer miles, book their room at a timeshare and then begin looking for their Maui wedding venue. Unfortunately, this scenario often causes added stress for the bride and groom upon realizing only certain beaches and estates are available for weddings. Government ordinances prohibit or regulate many popular Maui wedding locations and day rentals.

I suggest a different approach to finding the best Maui wedding location: Combine your lodging site with your Maui wedding venue or wedding reception. Several West Maui Destination wedding private estate in Lahaina Mauivenues offer group lodging with a beautiful location for the ceremony and reception.

One of these locations is the Lahaina Oceanfront Estate Wedding House. This beachfront wedding site includes five suites accommodatingHeart shaped pool at oceanfront wedding estate venue in Lahaina for catered weddings on Maui. up to ten guests. The wedding ceremony and reception can take place on the oceanfront lawn for parties up to fifty people. I have actually seen the bride and groom end their perfect evening with a big splash in the heart shaped swimming pool!

Majestic Maui Private Estate Wedding Location for Maui wedding receptions and weddings on Maui.Another location is Majestic Maui Villa. This large, luxury estate wedding location offers a spectacular view of the ocean as well as a lagoon pool and large gas fire pit. This Maui wedding house has four bedrooms, sleeps up to eight guests, and accommodates up to seventy.

On the beach in Kaanapali, there isn’t a Maui wedding location closer to the ocean than this one! The Maui El Dorado cabana wedding location accommodates private parties up to sixty. Since the On the beach Maui wedding location at the El Dorado Cabana in Kaanapali for catered Maui weddings.oceanfront resort offers condominium style rooms, this may be more appealing for people who would prefer more privacy.

Regardless of where you decide to stay or have your wedding ceremony and reception on Maui, the memories will be priceless. My daughters are amazed how our friends and family still talk about our wedding reception in Chicago nineteen years ago! Good friends, family, and a beautiful location will ultimately create the magical wedding you desire.

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
