This year we have had amazing flowers to work with and some inspiring design ideas. Maui weddings boasted vibrant green and white striped lady slippers, green orchids with orange tints and pale green roses pop the brides bouquet below. Green cymbidium orchids were chosen for the bridesmaids bouquets. A collection of white phaleonopsis orchids, pure white cymbidium orchids, small heart shaped green antheriums and green antique hydrangea were used in the centerpieces on the table for this February wedding hosted at the Olowalu Plantation House in Lahaina Maui. Rows of muslin canopies lined the water’s edge and provided shade and light for dinner guests. Natural bamboo colored chairs and white linens rounded out the casually elegant theme.
The Olowalu Plantation House is unique event venue on the west side of Maui about 6 miles south of historic Lahaina town. There are no hotels or any development within to mar the views from the grounds inland or coastal vistas. This lends a timeless feeling to the property. Coupled with the careful preservation of the main house and the preserved historic grounds the feeling is old Hawaii at it’s best. I have shown this property hundreds of times and the reaction is the same, the property is even better in person. Along with the charming plantation style house and well-kept grounds there is a crescent shaped beach and jetty. The milieu inspires calm relaxation. Inside the house are three bedrooms, a living room and a large kitchen.
Any venue on the west side of Maui is conveniently located near many options for accommodations in all price ranges, a nice selection of restaurants and prime beaches. It is also a close drive to other island destinations, such as I’o Valley, Kihei and Paia.
