Hawaii Wedding Locations Guide

Aloha!  Well, I'm off soaking up the sun and eating papaya and pineapple in Hawaii right now.

With wedding season approaching and the fact that I'm in Hawaii, I'm reminded of the wedding sites we had looked at (and actually visited!) to get married.  Yep, we had planned to fly to Hawaii and have a wedding... but then, well, destination weddings are really hard to plan.

Since I still have the pictures, I thought I'd share them with everyone.  I know there are brides still looking and I thought this might help with choosing some locations.

The Ritz Carlton Maui...


A beautiful wedding on the beach at sunset.

The Four Seasons Maui....


 Private Estate...



With this view as your backdrop...


And this as your reception...

The beautiful white chapel at the Hilton in Honolulu (called the Ocean Crystal Chapel)

Private Estate #2 on Maui...

Private Estate #3...

Grand Hyatt Kauai...

The Aulani in Oahu...

The Haiku Mill on Maui...

 The St. Regis Princeville in Kauai...

Or just any quiet beach with some beautiful flowers at your feet...

The problem I had with the resorts was that everyone could watch your wedding.  The wedding sites were on the beach with all of the beach goers right behind you most of the time.  I don't want to see a fat guy in a speedo in the backdrop of my wedding pictures!!  Also, the hotels look down on the sites and we could hear people yelling from the windows. Not romantic to me!

That's why we looked at private estates.  But, the problem with private estates is that... well, they are houses. So it's hard to have a big party at a house.

The other thing was cost. However, now looking back on it, I think Hawaii would have been much cheaper!

I think I'll share my pictures I had saved of tropical wedding bouquets in a future post, as it will just give us all an excuse to look at pretty flowers!!
