The Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort is one of our favorite modern venues in Hawaii. The architectural integrity is inspiring and the location is breathtaking. While we have showcased the resort as a destination wedding venue before, it also makes a wonderful spot for a breezy rehearsal dinner or welcome reception. 

Destination weddings are especially fun due to the nature of travel. Everyone present has left work behind to embark on a getaway vacation to celebrate love! Guests get to know each other over the course of beach activities and cocktail hours. 

When planning a reception dinner in Hawaii, you can never go wrong with an ocean view, Mai Tais, and outdoor seating! Destination wedding photographer Kelsea Holder captured Alison and Sean's relaxed, tropical resort reception dinner at the Andaz Maui.
