What do you think makes eloping in Maui so special?

There are a variety of microclimates that create contrast between lush rainforests, mountainous landscapes and the very best beaches. With the Hawaiian islands being some of the most remote in the world, Maui is the perfect mix of jaw dropping nature and access to all of your creature comforts.

What’s a fun fact about you?

Before I started my career as a wedding photographer, I studied to be a scenic designer for plays and musicals.

How to elope in Maui

There’s no question that Maui is a magical place. From the Road to Hana to sunrise hikes at Haleakalā, there’s no lack of amazing places to elope in Maui. However, there’s more than just choosing a ceremony location for the books! Here are our additional tips on how to have an amazing elopement in Maui.

Finding the right Maui vendors

Finding the right wedding professionals for your Maui elopement is just as important as finding the right venue or location. Your team should feel like your batch of best friends for your big day! From your officiant to photographer, hair & makeup artist to your videographer, all of your vendors should be focused on the same goal: ensuring your big day is tailored to ensuring your love at epicenter! In addition to ensuring these professionals match your style, it’s important to feel at ease and comfortable with your team. Our trick here is if you can have a cup of coffee with your team and enjoy it, then you’ll likely feel comfortable with them as your aid in creating one of the most important moments of your life. Another tip is to book a package as opposed to individual vendors, as it’s a bit more cost-conscious to book a Maui elopement package instead of one-off services.

Finding the perfect Maui elopement location

Maui elopements can be much more than just beaches! Mountains to lavender farms, coves to botanical gardens, we love our Maui elopements of all styles. Private venues will cost far more than public beaches and each spot in particular has guest count or decor restrictions, but no matter what you envision we can help you create. Feel free to peruse our top ceremony locations here

Making Your Maui elopement legal

The process of getting your marriage license is much different than on the mainland. Since there isn’t a central city hall or government building you can visit, the marriage license agent – representatives of the District of Health – meet you at a designated place of their choosing. Because of this, it can be a bit trickier to get an appointment. This is a great thing to arrange prior to arriving on the islands. When you meet with your agent, you’ll need a form of identification – official passport, Driver’s license or military ID – as well as the name of your wedding officiant. If either of you have previously been married, you will need an official copy of your divorce decree. When you book with us, we’ll send you a guide that walks you through this whole process and can definitely make recommendations of agents closest to you. We got you!

When to Elope in Maui

Beyond choosing an awesome team of wedding professionals and an amazing venue, there are a few other key decisions to make when planning your Maui elopement, such as month or time of day for your elopement. There is definitely a peak tourist season in Maui and a lot will change for your trip and elopement based on what time of year you choose to elope! Read below for our tips on when to elope in Maui.

What time of year should you elope in Maui?

The most cost-conscious time of year to elope in Maui is on shoulder season or when tourist season is off. Tourist season in Hawaii is December through April so the best time of year to elope in Hawaii is May – November. Tourist season not only means that there will be a much higher volume of people on this tiny island, but rates for hotels, activities and venues will be higher. Though, in shoulder season there may be a bit of rain here and there! In general, if you’re able, elope during shoulder season.

What time of day should you elope in Maui?

It goes without saying: Hawaii can get HOT! We definitely stray away from performing your ceremony in the afternoon or 12pm – 3pm. Not only will you be sweating in your wedding dress, but the light is super harsh during these hours which means dark shadows over your eyes in your portraits. We advise eloping in the morning hours, even as early as sunrise, or in the early evening prior to sunset. These hours ensure cool temperatures and soft lighting.

How far in advance should I start planning my Maui elopement?

We get this question all of the time and it’s a great one! While we can coordinate an elopement with short notice – such as a week – we highly recommend giving yourself ample planning time. In general, we recommend planning three to nine months in advance of your elopement date. This will ensure you have time to plan where you’ll be staying, flights, activities and dinner reservations, in addition to all the nuanced details of planning your ceremony!

Read the real stories of couples who eloped in Hawaii!

Waves crashing against the rocks on a secluded Hawaiian beach with a gorgeous sunset …what more could any eloping couple want? Brittany & David, along with David’s sons, chose secluded Ironwood Beach (Oneloa) in Maui as their elopement vision. Brittany looked so beautiful in her gorgeous lace gown while David was dapper in his blue suit. The boys were handsome in pink and beige. It all came together under the Maui sky and these two exchanged their vows and traditional leis, the Hawaiian symbols of love and respect! Read more to find out how these two reconnected after high school, fell in love and decided to have Simply Eloped take care of all their elopement planning!

How did you accept the proposal?

Brittany: He took me to Hocking HIlls for our three year dating anniversary…he planned the entire thing! We had stopped at a brewery and gone on a hike. He proposed to me on top of a hill near a waterfall.

What attracted you to the venue you eloped at?

Brittany: I have always wanted to get married on the beach! Hawaii seemed like the perfect venue for that. You cannot go wrong with the scenery! We got married at Ironwood Beach (Oneloa) in Maui. We chose it because it was more secluded and had the beautiful sand, rock and greenery for photos. The waves crashing against the rocks and the sunset were amazing!

What did you do before the wedding? How did you get ready? How did you feel in the moments leading up to your elopement?

Brittany: We came to Hawaii for our wedding and our family vacation. We prepared by relaxing at our resort before it was time for hair and makeup. The boys went out and had lunch while I got ready. We were all nervous, but so excited!!

Tell us about your experience with Simply Eloped leading up to and on your elopement day.

Brittany: Our experience with Simply Eloped was nothing short of amazing. I started with one wedding planner and then I was switched to another – but it was a seamless experience. We had to change our wedding date three times because of Covid. Haley was so accommodating, and reassuring, that we would eventually have our special day!

How did you celebrate after your elopement?

Brittany: We went to Merrimans and had dinner by the ocean.

What words of encouragement do you have for those considering eloping?

Brittany: Don’t think…just do it! This company is amazing. They take all of the stress away from you, so you are able to enjoy your day without having to take care of multiple things.

Rather than having a traditional wedding, Amanda and Marc wanted to elope privately – and they did so in a big way. Wanting to have an adventure in a dream location, these two lovebirds chose to tie the knot on Big Island’s Kiholo Bay, Hawaii on February 22, 2020, and their wedding photos make it clear they got what they wanted! Scroll through to see their intimate beach elopement, followed by the dreamiest sunset you’ll ever see. Read all about their love story – and their experience with Simply Eloped – below!

WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO THE VENUE YOU ELOPED AT? 

We eloped at Kiholo Bay on the Big Island of Hawaii. First, the scenery stood out to us. Kiholo Bay is a secluded black sand beach where Hawaiian wildlife is often found. As we were being married, whales swam in towards the bay and it was one of the most beautiful things we have ever seen.

WHAT ACTIVITIES DID YOU DO BEFORE THE WEDDING? HOW DID YOU PREPARE? HOW DID YOU FEEL LEADING UP TO THE MOMENTS OF YOUR ELOPEMENT? 

We got married on the second day of our trip to Hawaii! However, before the wedding we were able to squeeze in some activities. We went snorkeling at Two Step beach where we saw sea turtles and tropical fish, and we hiked around Pu’uhonua O Honaunau National Historic Park. We got married in the evening as the sun set so we had time to dress at the hotel before we left for Kiholo Bay. Before the elopement we were both very excited but it felt peaceful. This was exactly how we wanted to start our marriage.

HOW DID YOU CELEBRATE AFTER?

After the wedding we watched the sunset and ate a Hawaiian seafood meal by the beach. We had two weeks left on the Big Island and explored a new section every day, from Volcanoes National Park, to Waipi’o Valley.
