Real Hawaii Destination Wedding, How To Plan It From Abroad
After a lot of searching and trying to decide between an Oahu wedding, a beach wedding or an oceanside park setting. Ananta & Katrina finally decided they needed help. With thousands of destination wedding packages Hawaii, and venues it became hard to know exactly which one was perfect for them as a couple. Luckily, Islander Weddings came to the rescue! Being experts on Oahu wedding venues and vendors, Islander Weddings made everything easy. Ananta & Katrina ultimately decided on choosing from several Hawaii wedding packages and found a Hawaii wedding venue that matched their spirit.
Ananta and Katrina decided on a picturesque setting for their ceremony, Leahi Park. Leahi which locals translate to “Brow of the Tuna”, is located only five minutes east of Waikiki, at the foot of the scenic and iconic Diamond Head Mountain. Part of the lure and charm of Diamond Head Mountain is not only the beautiful panoramic view of Honolulu but it’s rich history.
Story has it that the 760-foot crater (Diamond Head) got its name from the British sailors who thought they had discovered diamonds on the crater’s slopes. Imagine a volcano erupting with diamonds, seems too good to be true right? Well it was! To the sailors dismay the “diamonds” they thought they found were actually shiny calcite crystals and had no value. But this history helped to create the iconic mystery and is one of the reasons that makes Leahi Park and Diamond Head Mountain the perfect setting to say “I Do”! (Source of History: GoHawaii.com)
