Wedding in Hawaii at Magic Island

Magic Island at Ala Moana Park

For their Wedding in Hawaii at Magic island Paul and Tonie opted for a late afternoon sunset. Ala Moana means ‘Path to the Sea”.  Just by taking a stroll out along the walking path one can see how that name applies here. There are numerous water craft making their way in and out of the harbor, sailboats, outrigger canoes, and other assorted vessels. The park is a popular spot where people like to walk, jog,  have a barbecue , or just spend time enjoying the view of Diamond Head Mountain, Hawaii’s iconic symbol.

Annually, the Ala Moana Center puts on a 4th of July fireworks show over Magic Island.  It draws numerous spectators to the surrounding area.  Along with the fireworks show, the Ala Moana Center ropes off a portion of its parking lot for a live concert with many popular local bands performing.

For this happy couple, the end of the day marked a new beginning as husband and wife. Sunset in Hawaii is always a special time of day and this was no different. If it’s a Wedding in Hawaii then you should consider this spectacular beach park in Honolulu.
