Perfect weather, picturesque wedding venues, intimate and unforgettable – happily ever after begins in Hawai’i.
With the balmy climate, enchanting scenery and lingering scent of tropical lei, romance is always in the air in Hawai‘i. Your clients could be tying the knot overlooking Waikīkī Beach, as surfers ride the waves in the distance. Or let the beauty of the lush garden isle, Kaua‘i, carry beloved couples away to a simpler time. On the sunny coast of Wailea on Maui, oceanfront receptions sparkle in the evening light. Couples can even add Hawaiian touches to their wedding by incorporating flower lei into the ceremony — like the fragrant pīkake for the bride and maile for the groom. Whatever they envision for a perfect day, loved-up couples are sure to seal their love by saying “I love you” the Hawaiian way: aloha au ia oe.
Lē‘ahi (Diamond Head) in the background, Waikīkī Beach glittering as the sun sets: a Hawai‘i wedding doesn’t get much more iconic, or romantic, than O‘ahu .
Saying I do is just the beginning. If clients are planning a wedding on O‘ahu the options are endless. Would they like to get married on one of O‘ahu’s beautiful beaches or on the stunning grounds of Kualoa Ranch? Do they 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 O‘ahu.
The world-class service and amenities of the many hotels and resorts on O‘ahu are custom-made for weddings. Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore offers the perfect place for beautiful new beginnings. The soaring pink turrets at the iconic Royal Hawaiian have lured couples from around the globe, and for a spectacular view overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Diamond Head, Halekulani, the “House Befitting Heaven,” is the ideal wedding spot. For a romantic setting mixed with a little adventure, look no further than the Four Seasons Resort on O‘ahu’s rugged western coast.

Take a private helicopter tour of the Napali Coast, or cruise down the Wailua River to tie the knot in a dreamy fern grotto. The lush Garden Isle is like one big wedding bouquet.
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 Kaua‘i, it’s as if you have the island’s blessing as well.
Say your vows under the North Shore sun, at Timbers Resort on the West Coast or on the sands of the South Shore on a historic estate like Kilohana or the stunning Grand Hyatt Resort & Spa. 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 Kaua‘i) is often sung at Kaua‘i ceremonies.

The Magic Isle has been a top wedding and honeymoon destination for decades, thanks to its world-class resorts, romantic beach sunsets and incredible landscapes.
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, choose a botanical paradise like Haiku Mill, or want a lavish ceremony in a five-star resort in Wailea, such as The Andaz, Four SeasonsResort Maui at Wailea or Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui meets every expectation.
Island of Hawaii
The venue choices here are endless, from a sunset beach ceremony on the Kona Coast to the serene pagodas of Lili‘uokalani Gardens with Maunakea towering in the background.
The biggest day of your life just found an appropriate home. The venue choices on the island of Hawai‘i are endless, from a sunset beach ceremony on the Kona or Kohala coasts at a stunning resort like Mauna Lani or Fairmont Orchid to the serene pagodas of Lili‘uokalani Gardens with Maunakea towering in the background. Fill a formal ballroom of a world-class resort with family and friends or exchange flower lei in a private ceremony, barefoot in the sand or with a stunning volcano as your backdrop.
Sail into the sunset with a ceremony at sea, marry in one of Hawai‘i’s oldest Christian churches or say your vows on horseback in the scenic uplands of Waimea. On the Hilo side, the northeastern coast is known for its beautiful waterfalls, lush rainforests and scenic lookouts, perfect spots for an intimate wedding.
