Maui Wedding Venues – The Hui

Private Wedding Venue in Upcountry Maui Brings History and Artistic Charm to Island Weddings

If you’re researching endless listings of Maui wedding venues you’ve come to the right blog. VOWS Wedding & Event Planning loves what locals call: “The Hui”. Steeped in Hawaiian history, natural and man-made artistry and elegance, a vast private property with views and endless photo opportunities, a venue with capacity for any size wedding you dream, all located in a temperate location on the island no matter the season, you have found it in The Hui No’eau Visual Arts Center.

Settled just below Makawao Town and in site of extraordinary views of the West Maui Mountains and Maui’s North Shore, the spacious Mediterranean-style home wows upon your approach. It was designed in 1917 by famous Honolulu architect, C.W. Dickey, for Harry Baldwin and his wife Ethel, founder of Hui No‘eau Visual Arts Center. The Hui has been a gathering place for some of the greatest artistic minds contributing to Maui arts and culture. The Baldwin’s daughter even married on the property, so it was meant to be.

The great thing about The Hui being a recent addition to our Maui wedding venues list is their flexibility for any shape, size or personality celebration. Each is custom to you (which aligns with our planning philosophy); no cookie cutting must do’s and don’ts. You bring in your own catering and bartenders; giving you maximum control on taste and spend. There is ample parking – no shuttles or valet needed which is a luxury on Maui. The Hui is open to the public until 4pm, but wedding set-up and photos can start anytime and you have access to the quaint guest cottage for getting ready as early as you’d like.

On its 25-acre grounds (the largest of Maui wedding venues I have seen) you and your guests also can’t miss Maui’s largest Cook Island pine trees, native Hawaiian flora, and the magnificient Monkeypod. (No, not the restaurant, but that’s a great Maui spot too!) The darling Maui Polo “team” will also be there for a photo opportunity and to toast you as you say “I Do”. Maui wedding planner
