Are your clients thinking of tying (or re-tying) the knot? The Hawaiian Islands is one of the best places in the world to celebrate their wedding or renew their vows.
Why? Because there are so many unique, beautiful and interesting places to get married or renew your vows. From barefoot tiki bars to secluded beaches, the Hawaiian Islands have the perfect place for your clients’ special ceremony.
Read on to find out about 10 of the top spots:
1. Private waterfall wedding
If the thought of arriving at their wedding in a chopper appeals to your clients, they can charter a helicopter and take their celebrant with them to a totally remote waterfall location.
Many of the waterfalls in the Hawaiian Island are only accessible by helicopter, so your clients can be assured of total privacy in their own slice of paradise.
2. Haiku Gardens
If your clients’ wedding dreams involve a flower-filled paradise surrounded by lush rainforest with a mountain stream running through it, Haiku Gardens on Oahu’s East Coast is for them.
They can have their ceremony, followed by drinks and pupus (canapes) on the lawn and then head up to Haleiwa Joe’s, the onsite restaurant, for their reception.
3. Four Seasons Lanai
If your clients want to follow in the footsteps of Bill and Melinda Gates, they ought to get themselves over to the ultra-luxe Four Seasons Lanai for their big day.
The billionaire couple used to own the resort and hosted their own wedding there. Perfect for everything from a private elopement to a no-holds-barred VIP bash, the Four Seasons Lanai can guarantee polished perfection.
4. Waimea Valley
If your clients want to get married next to a waterfall in a rainforest, Waimea Valley is the place for them.
The pristine, natural environment of this venue is supported by an experienced events team, so they won’t have the headache of figuring out how to get loads of chairs and cases of champagne to a remote island waterfall.
5. Kualoa Private Nature Reserve
Kualoa is a famous movie location for good reason: it has secluded beaches, epic mountain ranges, ancient cultural sites and a working ‘paniolo’ (cowboy) ranch to choose from.
Do your clients want to ride a horse down the aisle? Well, they can. Do your clients want to rock up in an all-terrain vehicle? They can do that too.
6. Sail Holokai
If sailing around the Hawaiian Islands is your clients’ idea of a perfect day, they can charter a private catamaran with Sail Holokai for their nuptials.
With capacity for 49 guests, the catamaran comes fully staffed and has a bar on board. Your clients can get married on a secluded beach and then hop aboard for the reception, complete with swimming, sunsets and a seafood BBQ.
7. Waioli Huiia Church
If your clients are history buffs or simply love heritage buildings, a wedding in the Waioli Huiia Church in Hanalei, KauaI, could be ideal for them.
This 1834 church is renowned for its iconic bottle green shingles and stained-glass windows. It is the very picture of island-style, set in a tropical garden with palm trees swaying overhead.
8. Duke’s Canoe Club
If your clients want a beachfront wedding without the high price tag, Duke’s Canoe Club could be the answer.
This barefoot bar can be hired out for private events and is in a prime location right on the waterfront, with sweeping lawns leading down to the water.
This is one of the few places in the world where it’s totally okay to get married in a bikini or board shorts, so your clients can slip on their special-occasion thongs, stick a flower behind their ear and throw the best party of their lives.
9. Four Seasons Ko Olina
If your clients want the convenience of having their wedding in one gorgeous place, Four Seasons Ko Olina on Oahu has everything they could possibly want in a tropical island resort, with the convenience of being a 35-minute drive from downtown Honolulu.
As an added bonus, they will find the Lanikuhonua Cultural Institute right next door. With a name that means ‘place of joy’, this is a popular venue for outdoor ceremonies – an experience that can be arranged through the team at the hotel.
10. The Royal Hawaiian, A Luxury Collection Resort
If old-school Hollywood glamour at the Hawaiian Islands’ most famous hotel is your clients’ idea of a luxe experience, they should host their wedding at “The Pink Palace”.
Here, they can walk in the footsteps of Hollywood greats like Marlene Dietrich, Shirley Temple, and former US President Franklin Roosevelt, while they sip on a celebratory cocktail at the original Mai Tai Bar.
