Destination Wedding on Maui

Articles, Stories, & News

We have a lot of bookings and are not able to take the time we would like to share about all our events, but once and a while, we like to highlight an event on our website. We put this destination wedding together last minute but it worked out beautifully. We received a call from Steve's assistant. He was due to be here for his wedding in a week and the entertainment was not in place yet! Oh No!!

The Grand Wailea requires event insurance for all the performers so that complicates things for their clients. Luckily, Hawaiʻi Hula Company offers insurance for all our events! We were able to put together a Hawaiian Trio (3 musician band consisting of Ukulele, Guitar and bass) for 3 hours, 4 Hula dancers (featuring both kane "male" & wahine "female" dancers), 2 Fire dancers with live polynesian drums.

A great Hawaiian Entertainment line up for any destination wedding! The evening started of with the Live drums marking the start of the beautiful oceanfront ceremony.

The live polynesian drums call attention to the ceremony area, let guest know we are about to start. The bride was beautiful and the groom in wonderful spirits for photos while our musicians treated guests to Traditional Hawaiian music mixed with Modern Island style music. The lively and aloha-envolking music moving through the air was accompanied by a lovely soft breeze... The guests mingled and laughed enjoying the atmosphere and great food. The Maui Sunset was spectacular as always...

Next up, our Hawaiian trio welcomes the Hawaiʻi Hula Company Hula's Dancers to perform Hula for the happy guests. The atmosphere was soon full of sound and visual excitement as our Hula dancers swished and turned about that stage! So lively and full of energy, it brought silence and smiles to the crowd as they watched with glee.

Finally, after all the good food, entertainment and great Hula fun, it was time for the finale... Fire Knife Dancers. Guests were so excited as 2 of our Fire Knife Dancers twirled and threw fire knives all around and up side down. They were catching Fire knives from each other, twirling the Fire Knives up in the air and then catching them! Throwing the fire knife around their body dancing to the beat of the live polynesian drums. What a way to end the evening! What an evening full of beautiful entertainment!
