Our friends at Salon 253 Bride approached us to collaborate on a Maui wedding inspiration shoot for 2023, we naturally said yes! They wanted our help finding a gorgeous location to shoot and we thought what better place than our newest venue wedding offering, Andaz Resort in Wailea! If you’re dreaming of a private, oceanfront setting for your upcoming nuptials, this gorgeous setting is sure to steal your heart! The salty ocean breeze, magnificent Kiawe trees, lush foliage…what’s not to love?
Besides the fantastic bridal hair and makeup by Salon 253 Bride, we partnered with our talented friends at Karma Hill Photography, Colie Marie Design Co, and Kiawe Outdoor for a bohemian-styled shoot to showcase the beauty of this stunning venue and some popular wedding trends in decor and hair and makeup for 2023!
This luxurious and private venue is situated right in the center of Wailea, on Maui’s Southwest Shore. This area, in general, is known for its spectacular sunsets and breathtaking views, home to some of the most beautiful beaches on the island! And what we love most about the Andaz Wailea as a wedding venue is the resort’s stunning beachside lawns. Lawns, Laule’a 1 or Laule’a 3, are surrounded by the natural splendor of the ocean and lush tropical greenery.
Both are stunning options for a Maui venue wedding! Laule’a 1 offers broad ocean vistas and swaying palm trees, creating a tropical and intimate setting. Laule’a 3 features a majestic, old-growth Kiawe tree that creates a distinctive and visually stunning backdrop. With both venues, couples have flexibility with their décor and design. Andaz graciously provides wood cross-back chairs for each ceremony and a sheltered area just in case the weather isn’t as pleasant!

Not only does this venue offer two beautiful locations for an intimate, private ceremony, but the resort offers the option to block rooms off for you and your guests for convenience and simplicity. This makes your wedding experience far more enjoyable without the hassle of traveling throughout the day. We’re all about making your wedding day simpler! You can arrange a room block directly through the resort or via our preferred agent.
What’s even more convenient is after your vows, you can celebrate in style with your guests with a reception in one of the resort’s elegant private rooms or fine restaurants. Andaz‘s hospitable team will happily accommodate to your needs with a wide range of delicious culinary delights and local specialties.
Bringing all the elements together for this styled shoot was so much fun – from the stunning setting to the little details of the day. The bohemian details with a touch of tropical flair were present throughout the shoot, which felt fresh and unique!
Salon 253 Bride worked their magic again with our bride’s beautiful plaited hair! Her makeup was done meticulously by the talented team at Salon 253 with a soft natural look. Her long golden tresses paired with a lovely haku flower crown by florist Colie Marie Design Co was the perfect style for this tropical bohemian shoot. Our bride’s tulle gown reflected the beachy atmosphere, hinting at the white frothy waves just beyond the lawn… What an excellent collaboration to bring out the bride’s beauty.
Thanks to Colie Marie Design Co for the beautiful tropical bouquet and amazing chair arrangement. The flowers looked so vibrant and the colors were perfect for an outdoor Maui wedding inspiration shoot.
Kiawe Outdoor created the perfect lavish weddinging setup. Peacock chairs, plush bohemian decor, feathers, candles, and tropical blooms artfully set the tone for this spectacular aspirational shoot. With Hawaii’s lush scenery as our backdrop and gorgeous details, the outdoor venue was the perfect romantic escape for our couple.
Thanks to our gorgeous models Chelsea and Cody who are actually newlyweds! You both looked relaxed under the magnificent Kiawe tree overlooking the beach. We are so lucky to have you both help create this beautiful wedding scene…with a sip of champagne, of course!
After relaxing at our luxe bohemian spread, our couple walked around the grounds for a few romantic sunset portraits against the ocean backdrop. Our highly skilled team of photographers at Karma Hill Photography will capture all the best elements (both natural and any decor) of the setting for each portrait, ensuring our couple’s Maui wedding photography is dynamic with flattering angles within the tropical splendor.
Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee there will be no passers-by or beachgoers on the public beach in front of the lawn, but thanks to our skilled photographers and the magic of our talented editing team, we ensure each photo will be just the two of you savoring the moment of your big day!
The beach is just a few steps from both of Andaz’s ceremony sites. When planning your ceremony our coordination team can ensure you have time in your photography timeline to add on beach photos. For this styled shoot, the photography team was focused on the ceremony location and all the fun details!
Huge mahalo to all our wonderful vendors and models who helped create this stunning Maui wedding inspiration shoot! It was a joy to see our vision come to life at our spectacular new wedding venue. We appreciate all that you do for our clients to make their dream Maui wedding a reality! May you have a successful new wedding season ahead!
