ICYMI, Arie Luyendyk Jr. - AKA the Bachelor who famously called off his engagement earlier this year - took to Instagram just a few days ago to share a first look at his wedding save-the-date! Which was obviously sickeningly adorable.
Save the Date: Minted
These two have engagement photo-geneity for dayyyyys. And just look at that sunshine pouring in from the side - pretty magical, right? Thanks to Jennifer Perkins at Griffith Imaging.
Anyway, the save-the-date was a Minted creation, our favorite place for ALL the wedding-related stationery, and the Coco and Ellie design + craft envelope paired so well with the feel of their engagement session. Softly lit, almost sepia in tone, so so pretty. There was also a personalized A + L stamp, because extraness is never overdone when it comes to wedding invites.
He captioned it with “Sending these out this week! January can’t come soon enough ❤️.” And all it takes is a little squinting to see that they’ll be making things official on Saturday, January 12th, at the Haiku Mill (also tagged, because Arie is really excited about it).

We’re obsessedddd with this venue, so much so that we’ve recommended it before: as a solid option for anyone who wants to ditch their original ‘I Do’ plan for something destination. Now knowing that two of the most wanderlusty people to ever go on the Bachelor picked it as their wedding venue, makes us even more convinced that this place is perfection. Seriously, they had their pick of any beautiful locale, and they chose this one…
Must be 👌. And actually, Arie called it ‘incredible,’ when he posted a pic of the venue ☝️back in May and shared the deets that they’d be getting married there come ‘JanuLARIE.’
For anyone who’s recently engaged and/or has ever - for one second - considered a wedding in Hawaii. Just scroll through the below pics and POI at Haiku Mill and try not to feel insanely inspired. We dare you.

Why this venue has our hearts
It offers an unmistakable blend of a lush, tropical location in Maui with Old World, European flair
The pictures literally make the property look as if it’s a secret garden - a botanical paradise ripe with relics of days gone by. Basically, a fairytale setting that’s not easily forgotten.
Haiku Mill’s owner always dreamed of having “a castle that was so enchantingly beautiful, that people’s spirits were lifted just by its existence.” And she’s legit living out her dream every day by helping customers - from ALL over the world - Phoenix lovers and beyond - begin a new chapter of their love stories at her old sugar mill, alive with the spirit of Aloha.
Botanical paradise doesn’t even do this place justice, here you can wander through mango tree groves, marvel at all the stunning fruit that grows in DROVES on the grounds, and get lost breathing in the intoxicating fragrances that waft through the gardens - a bride doesn’t even need a signature scent for her big day, she’s got the mill to make her smell good.
