A Sight To Behold – Rachel & Jake’s Hawaii Venue Wedding

Tucked away on the shores of West Maui Mountains, the Olowalu Plantation House set the stage for Rachel & Jake’s sophisticated Hawaii Venue Wedding. Constructed in 1922, this historic sugar plantation is adorned with towering pines and panoramic ocean views. A perfect blend of exotic tropicals and a dash of country.

Together for over eight years, this outdoors-loving couple longed for a special day that reflected their personalities—relaxed yet sophisticated. Nothing stuffy, just contemporary flair and the Maui coastline wrapped in an elegant package. And the result had us breathless …

Etched glassware refracted the gentle daylight and drew guests’ eyes to the bursts of peach, boysenberry, and blush in the untamed centerpieces.
