Last Updated on April 25, 2024 by Karma Hill

We recently had the pleasure of coordinating our first-ever wedding for our wonderful couple, Kathryn and Joseph, at the stunning venue, Andaz Resort in Wailea! Their Maui venue wedding was absolutely perfect, down to every little detail, from the tropical floral sconces to the old-growth Kiawe tree that majestically sheltered our happy couple. It was a joy to coordinate this special day for our newlyweds. And it is also just as memorable for our Simple Maui Wedding team too! Curious to see more of this stunning venue of the couple’s big day? Keep reading!

To start their intimate ceremony, their friends and family gathered under the magnificent Kiawe tree on the Laule’a 3 Lawn, just one of two gorgeous oceanfront lawns offered in our Andaz Resort Wedding Package. Kathyrn and Joseph hail from Tacoma, Washington, so you can imagine they were delighted to bask in the sunshine and tropical temperatures in mid-February! The gorgeous scenery and tropical flower sconces provided all the natural decor in the simple, elegant style they hoped for…

Since our charming pair visited Maui for the first time last year, they fell in love with the island and knew they wanted to return and get married here! So they were beyond happy to exchange their vows in our newest venue location in paradise, making it feel even more special for everyone. It was fun, carefree, romantic, and relaxed…just how they wanted their Maui venue wedding to feel!

More Than A Dream

After their beautiful ceremony, we were excited to photograph our newlyweds in the gorgeous spots this tropical oceanfront venue offers! Since Joseph and Kathryn are nature lovers, we captured several stunning portraits with their friends and family under the towering tree and the surrounding tropical foliage. This is the perfect spot for a couple wanting privacy yet being outdoors in a natural oceanfront setting without the beach crowds…

The Best Of Both Worlds

Another fantastic and dramatic setting for newlywed portraits is the striking entrance of the resort. It’s bold and minimalistic, making it a beautiful contrast to the portraits taken in the lush natural surroundings outside.

Naturally, our newlyweds wanted to head down to Mokapu Beach in front of the resort for some more intimate portraits. After all, when in Hawaii…! This beach is truly stunning because it has a variety of backgrounds for stunning photos, such as lava rocks, turquoise waters, and palm trees… And maybe a turtle or two! The natural beauty and marine life of Maui are what Kathyrn and Joseph love so much!

A Touch Of The Tropics

We love the tropical flair of their attire! Especially Joseph’s bright aloha shirt and Kathryn’s gorgeous tropical bouquet against her sparkly gown. Relaxed yet refined with a touch of aloha – a perfect choice for a Maui wedding!

With easy access to the beach, tropical scenery, and a private ceremony location, our Andaz Resort Package is truly the best of both worlds! Our newlyweds had an unforgettable wedding day which surely their guests are still talking about!


Congratulations, Kathryn and Joseph! Mahalo for your open and easy-going attitude and for choosing Simple Maui Wedding! It was our pleasure to coordinate your big day! We hope to see you again soon!
