Whether it’s popping the question overlooking Kauai’s timeless Kalalau Valley or promising your love in a glistening seaside chapel, Hawaii offers six islands with some of the most idyllic settings for weddings, receptions, and honeymoons.
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.
There are even more reasons to choose Oahu for your destination wedding. As part of the U.S., communication is easy, currencies are the same and your guests can focus on your special day and not on adjusting to a foreign country. Plus, there are more flights to Oahu from the Continental U.S. and Asia than to any other Hawaiian island and you don’t need a passport.
Here romantic moments and memories flourish like the rich green slopes of the Windward Coast.
Wafting trade winds help keep the bride and groom cool. Fresh local flowers adorn the venue. The ocean methodically peeks into the ceremony, then slowly retreats. Here on Kauai, it’s as if you have the island’s blessing as well.
Say your vows under the North Shore sun, on the sands of the South Shore or on a historic estate like Kilohana. Perform a traditional ceremony or do something unique that speaks to you. The beautiful “Hawaiian Wedding Song” made famous by Elvis in the movie “Blue Hawaii” (which was filmed on Kauai) is often sung at Kauai ceremonies.
Your special day deserves a special place and Maui provides an idyllic setting for the wedding of your dreams. Whether you’re planning a casual beach wedding on the shores of West Maui or a lavish ceremony in a five-diamond resort in Wailea, Maui meets every expectation.
You’ll find an impressive list of venues and resources, and expert wedding planners will attend to your every need. Nothing is spared to make sure your special day turns out exactly as you imagined. So let Maui’s specialists take care of the details so you can concentrate on what matters most: each other.
Imagine your own secluded island. Envision saying your vows as gentle trade winds blow off of Hulopoe Bay. Picture an intimate ceremony under the stars in the cool uplands of Central Lanai, shared with the ones you love. Through the luxury and impeccable service of its world-class resorts, Lanai provides an idyllic setting to take your first steps into a richer world.
It’s no wonder why Bill Gates, one of the world’s richest men, shared his vows here at the Four Seasons Resort Lanai on a dramatic bluff overlooking Hulopoe Bay. Whether it’s with the deep blue of the Pacific as your backdrop or in the shade of majestic Cook pine trees, Lanai provides a more personal alternative to other destination wedding venues, making the day you’ve always dreamed of even more special.
On Molokai you’ll find unique, stress-free alternatives to a larger wedding that can take away from your special day. This is the ultimate destination wedding for intimate weddings. Whether you’re saying your vows on the grounds of the Aqua Hotel Molokai or saying “I do” on one of Molokai’s serene beaches, a personal wedding experience awaits you both on Molokai.
