“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”
Many of Maui’s restaurants cater to wedding receptions and will work with you to develop a special menu for your guests. The recommended restaurants vary in ambiance and price, so you can choose the one best suited to your budget. Some also offer a buyout option for larger wedding receptions.
