WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THIS OCEANFRONT WEDDING VENUE IN MAUI
There are so many things I love about the Olowalu Plantation House, but the best thing about this oceanfront wedding venue in Maui is that it is large enough for 100+ people, but doesn’t feel overwhelming if you have under 20 guests.
It’s also oceanfront with amazing views on the pier for sunset portraits.
Additionally, there are THREE getting-ready rooms on-property so you never have to leave the venue to get ready. This in itself saves time and money as your vendors don’t have to travel from the hotel to the venue during getting ready time!
FAQS ABOUT OLOWALU PLANTATION HOUSE
QUESTIONS I OFTEN GET ABOUT THE OLOWALU PLANTATION HOUSE
WHERE TO HAVE YOUR CEREMONY AT OLOWALU PLANTATION HOUSE
OCEAN + PALM VIEW
This is the most common place for a ceremony at Olowalu.
Pros: great views of the ocean that is framed by the single palm tree.
Cons: The light can be BRUTAL here (photography-wise) and your guests can get very hot very quickly because there is no shade. Also, if there are people out on the pier, they’re visible from your ceremony.
BETWEEN PINE & PALM
For partial shade for your guests, this a great option
Pros: partial shade for your guests. Framed nicely by the pine tree and the palm tree. You also won’t see any people out on the pier.
Cons: partial ocean view instead of a full ocean view.
IN THE SHADE
I really like this spot because it’s away from the reception location and offers partial to full shade for your guests
Pros: for photography, the lighting is more even and your guests aren’t roasting in the sun.
Cons: No direct ocean view during the ceremony (but let’s be honest, the ceremony is only 20 minutes!
IN FRONT OF THE TREE
I’ve only photographed a handful of ceremonies under the tree – but they were my favorites. The tree has changed a lot over the years, but I loved the backlighting it provides while keeping guests comfortable.
Pros: backlighting is killer for photos
Cons: Tree isn’t as full as it used to be.
