We attended a recent wedding on the water that was perfect and merits the “Classic Maui Wedding” award. The ceremony was on the water, next to a pool, where shortly afterwards 2 bars were opened up to us. The pupus were delicious and the drinks strong. Dinner was great too and was served in a spacious indoor room. The ceilings were vaulted and the ocean view was still intact. Everyone had a great time as we ended the night partying, dancing, and singing the night away. See more Maui wedding photography by Natalie Brown Photography. […]
