To ring in 2019 we headed to Maui to celebrate our friends getting married! We had a beautiful sunrise and some great views of Molokai and Lanai on our flight over.
Windmills on West Maui.
We arrived on Saturday morning and had breakfast in Paia at Paia Inn Café.
Pineapple mint jalapeño juice. Delicious but so spicy!
Huevos Rancheros Verde: cumin black beans, two eggs, salsa verde, lime crema, queso fresco, with corn tortillas, and cilantro
After breakfast, we drove around and then headed to Lahaina to check in and get ready for dinner. We made reservations to visit our favorite restaurant, Mama’s Fish House, for dinner.
Crispy Mahi-Mahi Rolls with poha berry and Hamakua mushroom brandy sauce
Seared ahi special
Mama’s Stuffed Fish: Stuffed with lobster and crab, baked with a Macadamia nut crust
On Sunday, we walked around Lahaina and then met at Hale Pa’ahao Prison for the rehearsal before the rehearsal dinner at Old Lahaina Luau.
Hanging out at the prison!
Monday was the big day! The girls started their day at the Royal Hawaiian getting ready for the ceremony. We all got to wear the most incredible flowers in our hair! Caitlin was just stunning and we had a blast getting beautiful!
Beautiful rainbow to start our morning!
Can’t get over how beautiful the flowers were!
Next stop, the prison! It was a beautiful ceremony with more unbelievable flowers. After the ceremony, we boarded a whale watching boat to cruise around Maui, Lanai, and Molokai. We saw whales and an incredibly sunset.
Jake and Kersten!
Next stop was Down the Hatch in Lahaina followed by dancing at Monkeypod to ring in the new year! It was such a wonderful day celebrating!
This evening, we all headed to the Paradise Cove Luau. It’s one of the more popular luaus on the island and Bailey wanted to go to one while she was here….this worked out well for me too as it is something I wanted to cross off my list! We had fun relaxing and enjoying the food and entertainment. Success!

The fire entertainment…by far the coolest thing…the picture didn’t really turn out too well.
