After several rainy Maui days, the skies opened up over Olowalu Plantation, and the sun shone brightly on Leon & Kara's special day. The whales were out in force, and at times were a bit distracting :) Maui photographer, Scott Drexler was there to capture the moments, and he shared these stunning images with us.

We helped Eric & Betty Hsu create their dream wedding earlier this year. Since then, we have spent quality time with the newlyweds twice in their home state of California. We just love them! Here is the card we received a week or so after their wedding. Thank you Eric & Betty. You guys ROCK!
Adam & Taryn, along with family and friends, spent a warm gorgeous sunny day at the plantation. Taryn surprised Adam by singing one of his favorite songs, "The Way I Am" for him, accompanied by yours truly on guitar. It was terrific! The music and dancing are going on as I post this. Cafe O'Lei provided the delicious dinner and appetizers. Tod & Cindy kept the drinks flowing, Ka'ua Photography snapped the night away, and we should have some of his images to post soon. So much fun! Congratulations Adam & Taryn!!!
Michael & Regina selected Olowalu Plantation for their wedding celebration. Pastor Laki Ka'ahumanu officiated their ceremony in his usual Hawaiian style! Da Kitchen provided their local Hawaiian menu for appetizers & dinner. Thanks to our staff, Jim, Gabi, and PJ for taking care of everyone all night. DJ Del Sol kept the dancers on the dance floor as Aloha Bars Maui kept the drinks flowing. A big mahalo to Michael & Regina for trusting in us to make it happen!

With the threat of two hurricanes behind them, Ernesto & Catherine and their treasured family & friends enjoyed a spectacular Olowalu evening of fine food, drink, laughter, love, and dancing the night away! A time to cherish and reflect on for years to come. Thank you both for making Lori and I feel like part of your very special family! We hope to see you both again very soon.

What a beautiful evening! Stephen & Elizabeth's planned wedding date was to be tomorrow, the 7th. After looking at all the weather reports on hurricane Iselle, we got very concerned. Lori got on the phone with all the vendors to see about having the wedding a day early. Miraculously, every vendor was able to change the date! We thank all our vendors for making it happen without any additional fees! Sugarman's Estate, Cafe O'Lei Catering, pastor Al Terry, Ka'ua Photography, DJ Skinny Guy, Marie Audant, Bars Are Us, and VIP Transportation. Way to go guys! Of course, thank you to Lori too for the hours of phone calls, and coordinating the many last minute details. As a matter of fact, I have not seen her much the last couple of days :) Thank you Stephen & Liz for trusting us with your BIG DAY!
Under a clear Olowalu sky, Dan & Brianne said, "WE DO!" I got a few quick photos with my iPhone, but luckily, Scott Drexler was on hand to capture the magic. Thanks Scott for having my back!! :) Aloha Events Catering, Pastor Richard Lewis, DJ Randy (Ace Beats), Baron's Limousine, and Cakes by JoAnn rounded out the vendor list. Another spectacular evening at Olowalu Plantation. Thank you Dan & Brianne for trusting us with your most special day! Congratulations!!
