In the heart of Maui’s picturesque Makena coastline lies the breathtaking Kukahiko Estate, a hidden gem perfect for those seeking an intimate and romantic elopement on Maui. Imagine exchanging your vows with the sound of crashing waves as your backdrop, this incredible location sets the stage for an unforgettable celebration in paradise.

With its secluded beachfront and lush tropical gardens, the Kukahiko Estate offers the perfect blend of tranquility and natural beauty. This exclusive venue provides couples with privacy and intimacy, allowing them to focus on what truly matters – their commitment to one another.

We added to the ethereal ambiance of the estate by including a color palette centered around ivory and delicate touches of blue. A beautifully styled ceremony arch by Aloha Wedding Arches was adorned with ivory flowers, accented by gorgeous flowers in shades of blue. The soft breeze from the ocean gently rustled through the arch as the bride and groom recited their vows in front of a very intimate group of family and friends.

The talented team of Dmitri and Sandra Photography captured the couple under the golden Maui sunset and its soft, warm hues in the most beautiful way, make sure to scroll down to see what we mean. The estate’s natural beauty and striking ocean views offer the most breathtaking backdrops for your romantic sunset photos after you say I Do.

After a heartfelt ceremony and photos around the estate, the couple joined their guests at Gather in Maui to enjoy a romantic dinner under the starlit Maui sky. They indulged in a specially curated menu featuring fresh seafood and local delicacies, everyone commented on the delicious food and loved the semi-private dinner location.

These two were so sweet, we absolutely loved getting to know them during the planning process! Mahalo for choosing Makena Weddings as your Maui Wedding Planner, it was an honor and a pleasure!
