Overlooking the ocean, along the rugged Makena coast in south Maui, you will find the incredible Gannon’s Wailea wedding venue. One of Maui’s best-loved restaurants with the most amazing food, it is the ideal setting for both a wedding and reception dinner celebration here in Maui. Kristin and Luke wanted to wow their guests with their Maui wedding venue, with most of their guests traveling from Chicago and Texas, Gannon’s in Wailea definitely did exactly that!

The festivities started at Gannon’s Lower Wedding Knoll where Kristin and Luke said I Do under an elegantly decorated wedding arch, draped asymmetrically in white fabric, and adorned with gorgeous tropical flowers. As the gorgeous bride made her grand entrance from the top of the knoll, everyone’s jaws dropped at the sight of this sweet and beautiful bride!

Kristin and Luke were originally planning on hosting a large wedding in Dallas, Texas however during the planning process they realized that what they really wanted was something small, intimate and meaningful, surrounded by just a close group of family and friends. And we could not have been happier to have been chosen by the couple to make their Maui wedding dream come true!

After their gorgeous ceremony was complete the couple drove to the beach right across the street from Gannon’s for their romantic couple’s portraits, just the two of them, which allowed them some time alone to revel in all of the beauty together. As they rejoined their family and friends they were greeted with an amazing dinner followed by dancing in the warm Hawaiian breeze, we can’t think of a better way to celebrate becoming husband and wife in paradise!

Mahalo and congratulations from all of us at Makena Weddings, it was a true honor and a pleasure meeting and working with you and your amazing family and friends!!
