Last time we posted an article about Faith Xu’s wedding was on the big day! We were so excited to see everyone’s planning and hard work come to life. Especially our cocktails! We worked closely with Faith and her Fiancé to have the exact drinks that they were dreaming of, because they are total cocktail enthusiasts! For Aloha Bars Maui, it was a dream come true to work with a couple that is all about the drinks! Today we will be featuring Makena Weddings (the wedding planners), and a couple of the other local vendors. The venue is one of our favorites, Olowalu Plantation House. We hope you enjoy reading about Faith Xu’s wedding part 2 featuring Makena Weddings.
We are honored to work alongside one of the best wedding planners in the business, Makena Weddings. They are a full service wedding planning and design company located right here on the beautiful island of Maui. With their positive attitude, hard work, and dedication to each and every couple, we first handedly see the magic that they create. Whether you are dreaming of having a small beach elopement or elaborate celebration, Makena Weddings does it all! Having a wedding planner takes all of the stressful parts of a wedding off of your shoulders, and allows you to really embrace the special moments leading up to this day. We cannot recommend Makena Weddings enough!
Melia Lucida is a photographer based here on Maui. She has been in the business for over 20 years, and has shot many different types of weddings! Melia first began photographing weddings on film while completing her Bachelors and Masters Degrees. She loves documenting your big day through candid photos, making sure to capture these special moments naturally and beautifully. She will subtly direct you throughout the day for certain images, as well as capture the overall scenes and event. Melia creates timeless photos as she does not have one specific editing style. Each and every single one of her clients images are completely authentic as she edits based off of inspiration from the couple, the setting and the style of the day. I mean, look at all of these beautiful photos!!
Maui Palm Tree Floral is a floral design company here on Maui! Owner Noni Frye blows away everyone with her unique designs and attention to detail. Whether you are in need of a beautiful wedding arch, bouquets, centerpieces, lei’s and more, she does it all! All of her flowers are very fresh so they stay beautiful throughout the entire day and night without wilting. Her work highlights and compliments the natural beauty of the Maui venues. Noni and her team go above and beyond to make the brides floral dreams and inspirations a reality. We highly recommend Maui Palm Tree Floral and are always so impressed with their arrangements!
Aloha Bars Maui
We are Aloha Bars Maui, a mobile bar service here in Maui, Hawaii! Whether you are having a wedding, private event or party, we create custom cocktails (or mocktails) based on the host and their guests. We love working closely with our clients to ensure they will be more than happy with their drinks! Aloha Bars offers multiple bar styles from vintage to modern, and we also have a wide range of designer straws, garnishes, personalized drink tags and menus in order to give your event a unique look. Having a bar at your wedding or event automatically makes it more “upscale”, and is a great way of saying thank you to your guests for traveling from near and far for your special day.
We hope you enjoyed reading about Faith Xu’s wedding part 2 featuring Makena Weddings! We highly recommend any and all of these local Maui businesses for your wedding or event. It is an absolute pleasure to work with some of the best in the game, and we couldn’t be more grateful!
