It’s no secret that we love a romantic wedding at the Kukahiko Estate but add in a gorgeous wedding reception at Gannon’s Wailea and we are officially thrilled! Courtney and Jordan traveled to Maui all the way from Pennsylvania to celebrate their love along the rugged Makena coastline and chose not one but two of our favorite venues on the South side of the island for their celebration. With only 7 people total in attendance, it was easy to make the 3-minute drive from their wedding ceremony at the Kukahiko Estate to their dinner reception at Gannon’s!
The couple dreamed of an intimate and beautiful celebration right on the water with just their immediate family in attendance. Their ceremony was exactly that with a perfectly decorated driftwood arch set as the focal point of their ceremony where the couple made sweet promises of forever to each other. After their ceremony the couple enjoyed romantic couple’s portraits with Dmitri and Sandra Photography around the Kukahiko Estate property which also included the picturesque lava rocks surrounding the estate. In choosing two different venues, the couple also enjoyed portraits at Gannon’s Wailea during sunset which you’ll see as you scroll down turned out absolutely amazing!!
We love that though this wedding party was small, the couple still wanted their guests to enjoy a classic, elegant and luxurious experience during dinner. With beautiful lighting and flower decor literally dripping from the table, their sweet family enjoyed a lovely al fresco dinner reception with the prettiest decor in shades of dusty rose and fabulous dinner service provided by Gannon’s Wailea.
We can’t wait for you to scroll through the images below to see how unbelievably breathtaking their celebration was in two glorious settings here on Maui! Congratulations to these glowing newlyweds and Mahalo for choosing Makena Weddings as your Maui Wedding Planner!!
