This tropical, urban island is home to Honolulu and Waikiki, arguably the world’s most famous beach neighborhood.
Big city, bright lights, broad beaches and beautiful vistas: Oahu has it all and then some. Between its cultural heritage, historical significance and modern luxury, Oahu’s myriad options fit almost any style. Couples can wed on the beach with a snow-capped volcano in the distance and then entertain guests with rainforest treks or excursions to view the lava flow.
Saying I do is just the beginning. If you’re planning a wedding on Oahu the options are endless. Would you like to get married on one of Oahu’s beautiful beaches or in a historic venue like Kawaiahao Church? Do you want a reception by moonlight or in the comforts of a resort banquet hall? Even tying the knot on a surfboard isn’t out of the question on Oahu.
Combining your wedding and honeymoon as well as keeping your guest list small for a more personal and intimate ceremony can also save you money. Your guests will love it too, with endless activities to choose from, including golf, visiting Oahu’s historic places, experiencing a luau or simply relaxing in one of the island’s fine resorts. You can even add Hawaiian touches by incorporating flower lei into your ceremony — like the fragrant pikake for the bride and maile for the groom — using Hawaiian slack-key and ukulele entertainers, or using Hawaiian blessings during your ceremony.
The world-class service and amenities of the many hotels and resorts on Oahu are custom-made for weddings. Here romantic moments and memories flourish like the rich green slopes of the Windward Coast. Picturesque wedding venues. Perfect weather. Intimate and unforgettable. Happily ever after begins on Oahu.
