A laid back Maui celebration with impeccable style

Brendon & Sam

We had the pleasure to meet Sam and her mom at the beginning of the wedding planning stages. As we walked around their venue, they started to mention all the comfortable and inviting areas they wanted to have for their guests and families. This is when we knew their celebration would be one of a kind!

A fun and carefree Maui Wedding with their closest friends and family was the way they chose to celebrate their very special day in a place that means a lot to them. Their impeccable style and laid-back personalities stole our hearts.

Their Welcome Party at Pacifico

Brendon and Sam’s fun filled wedding weekend began with a welcome party at Pacifico, one of Maui’s most popular restaurants in Lahaina.

They cheered and enjoyed a beautiful evening with their friends and family!

Their Wedding Day at Puamana Clubhouse

Sam and Brenden chose The Puamana Clubhouse as their wedding venue. Puamana is a gated oceanfront resort community in Lahaina town and it has a special place in their hearts as our bride spent several summers there growing up. The Puaama Clubhouse, a historical Lahaina building, was the perfect backdrop for their beautiful celebration. The colors and architecture, the open space and ocean views…everything was picture-perfect!

Maui gifted our couple with a gorgeous day for their wedding: blue skies and surf. Many of their guests stayed in Puamana as well, so they got to enjoy the super-fun surf break that morning. 

Teresa Sena designed the prettiest florals! They were full of texture in beautiful muted tones of sunset hues and the blue ocean. For their reception, Erica of Couture Events set up all sorts of comfortable hanging-out areas for their guests, along with action stations of delicious local cuisine which truly brought our couple’s wedding vision to life: A Care-free , Unique and Fun Maui Celebration. After sunset, a live band welcomed their guests to the dance floor where our couple danced the night away!

From Erica of Couture Events :” I was so honored to have been chosen as Sam and Brenden’s wedding planner. Sam has some pretty strong ties to Maui, especially the venue they chose, where she grew up playing in the summer months. They wanted a unique experience for guests that was carefree and fun, true to their personalities so naturally, we created a laid-back cocktail reception.

Surf was up that weekend, perfect for Sam’s family of surfers – her family owned a surf apparel company on Maui. Waves crashed in the background of their oceanfront ceremony… it was one of the most perfect Maui days, totally fitting for their wedding.

From Erica of Couture Events: “The food and drinks were exceptional with a unique and unexpected take on local cuisine. A lot of lounge areas were created and different spaces to allow guests to relax and enjoy the views.

As day turned into night, an Island Kings Band, an energetic Oahu-based band, filled their reception space, creating a lively atmosphere for guests to sip, dine and dance the night away as they celebrated Sam and Brenden.

Some words we kept in mind while designing: fun, textural, casual, and carefree.

From Couture Events: “Sam loves soft and romantic garden flowers. She is also one that loves modern clean looks so we had Teresa Sena create these gorgeous bridesmaids bouquets that were all mono-bloomed in white. I think these were probably my all-time favorite bridesmaids’ bouquets.

Offering lei to friends and family is a traditional greeting in Hawaii. Sam and Brenden had a white orchid lei waiting for each guest on their ceremony chair as a way to say : welcome and mahalo.
