The Story

It's been four years, three countries, two active surf patrol seasons, and one big surprise to lead to this day.

The Wedding Day – July 2nd

Our ceremony and reception will be at the Haiku Mill, a historic sugar mill on Maui.
 
Haiku Mill A shuttle will take guests to Haiku Mill, departing from Ka'anapali Beach Hotel at 1:30pm sharp. The ceremony will begin at 3:00pm, with a cocktail reception to follow immediately after.

Guests will be seated for dinner at 6:00pm. The shuttle will take everyone back to the hotel when our venue closes at 10:00pm, and we invite you to continue the celebrations with us afterwards in Ka'anapali.

Parking is available at Haiku Mill for anyone opting to drive. Please let us know if you will not be taking the shuttle.

Dress: Formal. Upcountry Maui can be a fair bit cooler than other parts of the island, so ladies may want to bring a light cardigan or shawl for evening.

Getting There

.

Flying to Maui

There are two airports near our wedding: Kahului (OGG) & Kapalua (JHM).

Kahului is the main airport and has the most frequent service.  Flight time from Honolulu to Kahului is about 40 minutes and an Executive Shuttle bus from the airport to Lahaina (where we will be staying) takes another 45 minutes. Kahului is served by Hawaiian Airlines, Mokulele Airlines, Island Air, and go! Airlines.

Kapalua is on the west coast of the island and is closer to where we are staying in Lahaina, but flights are less frequent. Mokulele is the only airline servicing Kapalua.

Renting a car

The Kahului Airport in Maui is served by Avis, Hertz and other major agencies. You won't need a car to get around Lahaina, but if you want to explore beyond this town, a car is recommended.

Wedding day transportation

Since Haiku Mill is relatively remote, we will provide a shuttle service from and back to Ka'anapali Beach Hotel. The drive is approximately one hour. Parking is available at Haiku Mill if you wish to drive on your own.

Places To Stay

We will be staying at Ka'anapali Beach Hotel. Ka'anapali is ranked as one of the best beaches on the west coast and is close to Lahaina which has a fun strip and lots of things to explore. We have set up a group rate with the hotel that's available for bookings made before May 26, 2014 - just call them and tell them you're with the Benoit/Miller group before booking. On the day of our wedding, we will have a shuttle pick guests up from the Ka'anapali Beach Hotel and take them to the more remote location of our wedding in Haiku (we will also drop you back in Ka'anapali.) Other nice places to stay can be found within Lahaina and in the hippie and artist town of Paia which is close to our wedding venue.
