Hawaii is a chain of islands in the Pacific Ocean known for its dramatic landscapes, volcanoes, waterfalls, and lush vegetation that all provide a luxurious tropical destination wedding. You will instantly be immersed in the “Aloha Spirit”, which radiates through its people and culture. Locals pride themselves in love for each other and love for the land, truly embracing farm-to-table cuisine. The individual islands each offer a unique experience from popular nightlife to famous film locations to secluded beaches and sharp cliffs. You can really bring the local culture and Polynesian influences into your wedding by hosting a traditional luau reception where you can serve poke, kalua pork, poi, and taro rolls, and learn the traditional Hula dance. For a more intimate experience, you can host your wedding on a secluded stretch of beach surrounded by the lush foliage where you can exchange vows in a more private ceremony. Travel time is an important factor when visiting Hawaii, as many flights from the U.S. are long and can be costly. Most travelers will connect in Honolulu before moving onto other islands. Keep in mind the more remote islands may only be accessible by ferry or puddle jumper.
What is my favorite part of a destination wedding? Seeing the joy on the big day, knowing it all came together just the way the bride and groom wanted it to be.
