Cafe O Lei Catering 

Are you looking for some delicious food to be catered at your wedding? Well, the bride and groom sure did make a great decision by choosing Cafe O Lei! Cafe O Lei is an incredibly popular restaurant here in Maui. The first restaurant was opened in 1997, in Makawao. It all started as a 5-table outdoor cafe serving sandwiches, salads, coffee, and tea in Maui’s Upcountry.

Owners Michael and Dana Pastula have been married for over 35 years. Mike has worked as a chef for Hyatt and Sheraton hotels, The Lodge at Koele, Aston Wailea, and Outrigger Resorts Hawaii.  Dana brought her food and beverage experience from working in hotel restaurant management at Hyatt Hotels, Manele Bay Resort, and the Wailea Four Seasons Resort.

It didn’t take long for her husband to join her at Cafe O’Lei, with Mike leaving his job as executive chef for the Outrigger Resort in Wailea to focus on expanding their business. The Cafe O’Lei brand quickly evolved into one of Maui’s favorite and most trusted for quality restaurants and catering on the island! Together, the family operates Cafe O’Lei at the Mill House, Cafe O’Lei at the Dunes, Cafe O’Lei Kihei, ‘ami ‘ami Bar & Grill and Cafe O’Lei Catering. Cafe O’Lei is truly a family-owned and family-run business!

One of the things that we love most about them, is that they use the freshest ingredients. We highly recommend choosing Cafe O Lei for any of your catering needs.

Did you know that the owner of Aloha Bars, Kirsty Sinclair, has a sister business, “Luxury Photo Mirror”?! If you are looking for a fun activity and memory for the guests, a photo mirror is the perfect addition to your wedding or party! The mirror is 5 feet high and 3 feet wide. They provide custom designed photo borders and layouts for prints to match the colors and theme of the events. They also include fun and unique props to make the photos even better! Unlimited prints are available, and you will even get an online gallery of all the photos after the event! Open air photo booths are much safer right now, due to COVID-19. Luxury Photo Mirror provides two attendants-one specifically to ensure social distancing and sanitizing props. Here are 5 reasons to have a photo booth at your wedding or party.

1. The perfect wedding favors

Sometimes, wedding or party favors can be a huge portion of the budget, and something that your guests might just throw away later. One of the easiest ways to opt out of a traditional party favor is to have a Photo Booth! Giving photo prints that your guests can share online, frame, and most importantly, keep, are much more sentimental than most wedding favors that people have in mind. Don’t get me wrong, wedding favors are fun too! But this is a wonderful alternative.

2. Suitable for all ages

Are you going to have kids attend the wedding? What about family members that don’t like to dance? There are definitely those at the wedding that love to dance, and those that do not. A photo booth is great for those people who don’t like to be on the dance floor. It gives them a fun activity to do!

Another reason we love the idea of having a photo booth at your wedding is because how versatile it is. People of all ages really get into the idea of putting on oversized sunglasses, goofy hats and feather boas to show off their best poses. Photo booths are an activity that makes everyone loosen up. It’s also the perfect opportunity to get an awesome family photo or a romantic moment with your date. Little kids will also love posing with the props or cool backdrop!

3. Great way to do a wedding guest book

We love that the bride and groom will benefit from this as well! Not only are you cutting costs, but you also get to keep all of the photos that your guests take. This is a great memory that will make you laugh as you go through them, seeing the fun that your guests had at your party. The brides to be are going to want to steal this idea from you!

4. Help capture memories that your photographer might miss

Photo booths are a lot like polaroid cameras. Your guests will have instant, high-quality pictures that they can have sent to their phone. Encourage your guests to post their silly pics using your hashtag!

5. Fun entertainment

Photo booths are just simply fun entertainment! Sometimes wedding guests can get a little tired or bored while waiting for the cocktail hour to end and for the reception to start at weddings. That is why during this period, photo booths are the perfect distraction to keep your guests going! Your wedding guests are definitely going to have some fun while waiting for the bride and groom to do their thing! Time flies when you’re having fun, and this will be the case for your guests if you choose to have a photo booth. This type of activity also incorporates laughter throughout the celebration. You will forever cherish these moments!

Photo booths of all kinds are a blast! We highly recommend choosing Luxury Photo Mirror in Maui, Hawaii, for all of the reasons we listed above! Plus, because it is a giant mirror, you can do the photos in an open air space. This means, you don’t need to be squished inside a small space. Especially right now for safety reasons and health regulations. Check out Luxury Photo Mirror’s website and instagram for more details. Enjoy!
