The Kukahiko Estate Maui wedding of Jessica and LJ is one that Maui wedding dreams are made of. This sweet couple had been together for over 8-years before they decided on a having a destination wedding here on Maui. After they decided on a Kukahiko Estate Maui wedding, they knew that they wanted the beauty surrounding the Estate to take center stage. They chose to have a casual affair using the ocean and lava backdrop as the main source of inspiration for their decor, surrounded by their closest family and friends. After sharing heartfelt vows and enjoying a romantic Maui sunset, dinner, dancing and fun followed as they moved the celebration to Gannon’s Wailea for their reception.

We had so much fun working with this couple and were so excited to find out that they felt the same way as we did! They were so wonderful to leave us a glowing review that we are sharing below. We are truly so lucky to work with the sweetest couples. Mahalo Jessica and LJ for choosing Makena Weddings as your Maui wedding planner, we wish you a lifetime of love and Aloha!

Lauri and Cindy of Makena Weddings made planning a wedding in Maui from California so easy! We kept in touch with each other every other week or so or if I had other questions more often. It never seemed as if they were too busy to help or that any question was too dumb! From the beginning, they were very transparent with the cost of everything and helped me stick to my budget while including everything I wanted. We had our ceremony at the beautiful Kukahiko Estate and I cannot have imagined anywhere more beautiful! Highly recommend! We then had dinner at Gannon’s just down the road. I gave Cindy very few direction on what I wanted but the decorations turned out more beautiful than I could’ve imagined! So many amazing details! The wonderful Dmitri of Dmitri and Sandra Photography took our photos and we were amazed as well! Makena Weddings did so much more than we expected and created such an incredible and memorable day for me, my husband and all of our friends and family!
