As Hawaii’s second-largest island, Maui is nicknamed the “Valley Isle” for its rugged yet breathtaking landscape filled with mountains, waterfalls, and dense tropical forests. If you’re considering getting married in Hawaii, these Maui wedding venues offer all the same perks—gorgeous beaches, top-notch resorts, beautiful sunsets—as popular Hawaiian wedding locations like Honolulu and Waikiki on Oahu, with a much more laid-back vibe. Maui is constantly named one of the best Hawaiian islands for vacationers, but it’s a seriously incredible backdrop for your wedding, too! Keep reading to see why we’re loving these Maui wedding venues.

Grand Wailea Resort Hotel & Spa

Located in Kihei on Maui's South Shore, the Grand Wailea Resort Hotel & Spa is a memorable wedding location for an elopement, a microwedding, or even a large, multi-day celebration with hundreds of guests, since everyone can stay at the property. This sprawling oceanfront resort has 28 different indoor and outdoor event spaces, so there's plenty of room to spread out and find the perfect spot for your special day (including the stunning chapel pictured here). If you're envisioning something on the water, share your vows at Molokini Bluff, a private and secluded spot at the resort overlooking the ocean. To finalize your wedding details, turn to the venue's in-house event specialists, who can help you coordinate everything from ceremony music and floral arrangements to catering and photography.

Haiku Mill

For the ultimate fairytale wedding, there's no better place to get married than Haiku Mill.
