The stunning grounds and beachfront property are private and quiet, meaning your group will not have any tourists accidentally walking into your celebrations. The wedding party can prepare for the big day in the colonial style beach house, where overhead fans and four poster beds create an excellent backdrop to your preparation.
If you’re looking for indoor and outdoor options, the Grand Wailea Resort and Spa offers some incredible venues. The resort’s Humuhumunukunukuapuaa Restaurant offers a location with a more tropical feel. The Fairmont Kea Lani also has a variety of of beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces. There, White Orchid Weddings offers its take on a Hacienda in the Islands celebration called “Terracotta.”
As part of its service, White Orchid Wedding has its own in-house design team. They create everything from sketches to mood boards in order to create the space and feeling a couple dreams of on their big day.
Tips for couples looking for a wedding venue:
1) Don’t underestimate your local creative partners.
When it comes to weather, lighting, and venue requirements, they are the ones who use these venues and know it best.
2) Be mindful of your guest experience.
Be sure to provide details of your celebration. For example: Welcome them with in-room amenities if they are a destination group and be sure they are privy to all of the times and events that surround your day well in advance. Offer transportation if they will imbibe in libations and don’t inundate them with too many events.
3) Hire a planner.
Some offer ‘day of’ service, however we prefer the full service event planning option as there is a level of ‘last minute’ error that can occur.
Although its central office is on Maui, White Orchid Wedding services all of the Hawaiian Islands.
