Merriman’s Kapalua Intimate Elopement



One of our favorite weddings to date is the gorgeous Intimate Maui Wedding of Aiste and Andy! This stunning couple and their 6 guests joined us from California. These two showed us that even with a guest count of only the people closest to you, you can still have an absolutely breathtaking ceremony!!

Aiste wore an orchid in her hair, and her bouquet was dazzled with white hydrangeas, white orchids and white roses. Her hair and make up was flawless thanks to I am U’i!! The special day was captured by Angie Diaz Photography, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to see these incredible photos!!

The couple was married on the west side of Maui, on the grassy knoll at Merriman’s, overlooking Kapalua Bay, in Lahaina. They rented a simple bamboo arch with white drapery from Hawaiian Style Event Rentals, and Sunya’s Flowers did a beautiful arch treatment that was consistent with Aiste’s bouquet. This ceremony design was classic and romantic, perfect for this sweet, intimate elopement in Hawaii.

Marvin Tavega Music serenaded the couple with his ukulele before and after their nuptials, which set the tone for the sweet, Hawaiian ceremony officiated by Ernest Pua’a. Following the ceremony the couple dined at Merriman’s on Kapalua Bay with their loved ones.

Thank you so much to Aiste and Andy for allowing us to make your dream wedding come to life, and congratulations to the beautiful couple from all of us at Intimate Weddings Maui!!!

























Wedding at Merriman’s, Kapalua Bay


With it’s palm trees and ocean breeze, Hawaii is often known for intimate beach elopements and weddings. Today, we are so excited to share with you the wedding of Kate and Mark, where they traded in sandy feet, for a gorgeous white sand beach backdrop. The grassy knoll at Merriman’s on Kapalua Bay was the perfect spot for this sweet Intimate Beach Wedding in Maui.

 The lovely couple was staying at the Ritz Carlton Kapalua where Caitlin Cathey captured stunning photos of the Bride and Groom getting ready. Once the couple arrived at Merriman’s on Kapalua Bay they did a sweet first look on the grassy knoll overlooking Kapalua Bay.  The Bride’s hair and makeup was flawless thanks to MeiLi Autumn Beauty, and her vibrant florals by Sunya’s Flowers perfectly suited this Intimate Beach Wedding in paradise. Ernest Pua’a officiated the marriage between Kate and Mark, and what an honor it was for us to be part of such a gorgeous ceremony.

 After the ceremony, the couple snuck down to the rocky landing beneath the grass for romantic sunset photos as newly weds. 

Following photos, the couple shared their first meal together as husband and wife at the Merriman’s restaurant, overlooking the stunning scenery where the couple was just married.

Congratulations Kate and Mark from all of us at Intimate Beach Weddings Maui!




















Pastel Maui Beach Wedding Planner


Today we are so excited to share the beautiful Maui beach wedding of Jennifer and Nik! We started working with this fabulous couple about a year before the big day, and we had so much fun getting to know them in the process! The island of Maui holds a special place in the bride’s heart, so traveling from California to have a romantic wedding on the beach in Maui was the perfect location for the couple to say I Do! They rented a condo along with their closest family and friends and decided to have their wedding on the beach fronting their accommodations. After their ceremony, the party went back to the couple’s condo for dinner and an ombre ruffled wedding cake by Cake Fanatics. Dmitri and Sandra Photography captured the essence of this perfect day flawlessly as you’ll see as you below, this wedding was also recently featured on Hawaii Bride & Groom Wedding Style as well! A huge Mahalo to Jennifer and Nik for choosing us as their Maui wedding planner, coordinating their beach wedding was an absolute dream, thank you from all of us at Maui’s Angels Beach Weddings!! And of course we couldn’t have done it without these fabulous Maui wedding vendors that helped make this day amazing:

After family and bridal party photos, the couple traveled about 5-minutes down the road to Ironwoods Beach for dramatic sunset photos atop lava rocks and cliffs, something else that was hugely important to the couple, and of course Dmitri and Sandra nailed the shots!
