If you’re dreaming of a tropical Hawaii wedding you’re going to DIE at Kelsey & Justin’s romantic Maui wedding.
Kelsey and Justin celebrated on Maui’s Pa’ako Beach, otherwise known as “Secret Cove Beach.” It’s located on the southwest side of Maui and is super beautiful, full of big lava rocks, & the best part – it’s secluded!!
We also got the most perfect weather, which made the day 100x better. It wasn’t too humid or hot yet since we were there in March, but it was cloudy with super soft lighting and the sun came through at the perfect times for beautiful golden hour photos!! Make sure you pay close attention to the weather when you decide to elope in Maui because it can be pretty unpredictable. This article by Hawaii Guide has a ton of good info about Maui’s weather patterns and details about the rainy season!
In case these two don’t give you enough Hawaii elopement inspiration by themselves, their amazing florals will. Kelsey wore a gorgeous white, green, and pale pink floral crown made by Petite Maui, a local Maui florist. She does the most insanely beautiful work with tropical, colorful florals – you have to give her a follow!! She also created a super unique lei and boutonniere for Justin that added such a special touch + accent to his outfit.
Now let’s talk about a super fun part about getting married in Maui: whales!!
Since we were at Secret Cove Beach in March, we actually got to be there during Maui’s whale season. According to Ultimate Whale Watch, March is one of the best times to whale watch in Maui. We actually got lucky enough during our time at the beach to see some humpback whales breaching off in the distance!! It was awesome and Kelsey told me that it signified good luck – so you’ll definitely want to try to get to Maui at a time of year that you and your boo can go whale watching at such a beautiful location.
There are a few things you’ll want to take into consideration when you decide to elope in Maui (or any of Hawaii’s islands) so let’s talk about a few of the biggest ones in the form of the FAQ’s!
Maui’s rainy season is in the winter months, between November-March. That means its dry season is April-October, in the summertime & fall months. If you’re super worried about rain definitely try to hold your wedding in the summer months – just be aware it’ll be more crowded with tourists on vacay!
Maui is statistically warmest in August and coldest in January. You can look at any weather channel or website to see historical weather on the island and plan accordingly around the time of year you’re wanting to tie the knot there!
It depends on the kind of climate you’re wanting, but springtime is typically the best in Maui! There are less tourists visiting in the spring than in the summer + winter (all the tourists who want a warm vacation spot), and the weather is warm but not too hot yet.
