A Makapu’u Beach Wedding to Remember

After first dating many years ago, Garfield and Leavonies were reunited only to fall in love all over again. As their newly found love developed, they just knew they wanted to get married.  A Hawaii destination wedding would be the perfect place and plan to share their nuptials among close family and friends. So, they began searching for the perfect Honolulu wedding packages and Oahu wedding venues.   They also knew they’d want the best Oahu wedding photographers. As their plans unfolded for a Hawaii destination wedding, the couple decided their Hawaii wedding venue would need to be in a remote and secluded location. That’s when they learned about Makapu’u—a scenic ridge that rises nearly 650 feet over the sea and features a beach surrounded by lava rock tide pools.   What makes it even more special is a glorious lighthouse on the cliff at Makapu’u Point. 

So Many Hawaii Wedding Packages To Choose

Garfield and Leavonies sorted through so many Hawaii wedding packages.  Their destination wedding location was a clear choice, Makapu’u Beach Wedding. Then, all the details began to fall into place. They were able to book a Hawaii wedding package.  Something all inclusive that could help save on costs and also find recommendations for an Oahu wedding videographer and a Limousine service Honolulu. While the average cost of a wedding in Hawaii can add up, this happy couple was not about to sacrifice any details.  The couple opted for a fabulous, once-in-a-lifetime event at this Oahu wedding venue. They discovered that a Hawaii destination wedding package is the way to truly enjoy the finest island paradise on earth.  On top of that it was all within their budget. This Makapu’u wedding would be one to remember by Garfield and Leavonies, by their dear family members, and by their closest friends.

 

A Secluded Beach Wedding at Makapu’u

When their Hawaii destination wedding took place at Makapu’u, it was simply awe-inspiring. The wedding was a mid-afternoon event that took place on a breathtaking sandy dune at Makapu’u near Sea Life Park. The beautiful bride was escorted by her daughter.  She chose a  stunning bouquet of native fuchsia flowers. With tiki torches and blue ocean waves in the background, they stood in a symbolic rose petal circle to exchange their vows. The close of their ceremony in paradise included a photo session on the beach and at nearby Heaven’s Point. It was simply the most perfect day for all to behold, and Islander Weddings was proud to have guided Garfield and Leavonies in this magical celebration of love.

You can call it the most urbanized Island of Hawaii with many restaurants, spas, hotels and all the fuss of New York.  There is no shortage of fun activities on Oahu.

 Hawaii Island

Big Island of Hawaii, Bigger is best!

The Big Island of Hawaii

Hawaii Island is the biggest island in the state of Hawaii. It’s often referred to as the Big Island. You certainly should plan your Hawaii wedding package falls into this island if you’re thrilled by climatic wonders.  Having lived here before  for 6 years we recommend anywhere in the Kona or Kohala Districts for your stay.  The area is rich with Hawaiian history as well as home to the world reknown Kona Coffee.   There is also the quaint Kailua village in the heart of Kona with numerous restaurants and shops.  Here you can easily find a cafe serving some that good Kona Coffee.

The Big Island hosts 8 of earth’s 13 climatic zones.  The Big Island is perfect for a wedding destination for lovers that are fascinated about volcanos, mountains, weather dynamism, and mind-recalibrating air. If this defines you, then contact your Hawaii wedding planner to find you the best beach venue on Hawaii.

 

Get Married on Lanai

Before you book your tickets for an elopement in Hawaii, we suggest you take a long look at Lanai island.  Hawaii’s most secluded inhabited islands, Lanai is quite laid back with friendly and helpful locals. There are no traffic lights, three paved roads of 30 miles, and only a few hotels.  Nonetheless, it’s quite romantic. So, as long as you have a resourceful Hawaii wedding planner, your lanai wedding will be most memorable.

Lanai was once known as the “Pineapple Isle,  providing 75% of the worlds pineapples. But now it has now become the perfect getaway  for many looking to relax and re-energize.  When you go, be sure to check out one of Lanai’s favorite beaches at Hulopoe Beach by Four Seasons Resort.  The best scuba diving and snorkeling in all of Hawaii is found in this area.  For real, it’s a romantic and quiet destination wedding location for anyone who wants to get away from industrialization and its hurdles.  Plus, there are only about 3000 people living here.  You’ll make friends with everyone in no time!

 

 

Kauai, the Garden Isle

The Best Coastline

Kauai

Nowhere in the world is there an island as green, quiet, and peaceful as Kauai.  Popularly known as the ‘Garden Island’.  Kauai is surrounded by nature  97% of its landmass is covered with undeveloped mountains and rainforests.  

Yea, you guessed right. It rains a lot in Kauai. But lots of folks love it. It’s so serene and beautiful with waterfalls, lovely birds,  just teaming with lush natural beauty.  If you make it to Kauai plan a hike along Kalalau Trail or a boat ride along Na Pali Coast.  The coastline is simply breathtaking.  Kauai is an excellent destination for Hawaii elopement weddings, especially if you love everything green.  It provides the perfect balance between activity and relaxation.  Here you’ll find very little development in comparison to Oahu.

 

Maui, Some say it’s the best

Maui is one of the most popular islands for Hawaii destination weddings. Well, it’s not as popular as Oahu and Hawaii. However, but it’s got a plethora of beautiful beaches  that make it the choice of many couples.

We believe that’s one of the reasons why Fox chose it as a location for filming the romantic series, Temptation Island. Don’t scream if we tell you that it has 80 cool beaches. That’s more than enough options for finding an intimate beach wedding location.

Locals call it “No Ka Oi”, “the best” Island in Hawaii, and we couldn’t agree more. Its beauty comes with lots of attention that makes it the destination of many Hawaii wedding packages.

Well, that’s our list of the 5 best Hawaii islands to marry.  But if you are still not sure then you’ll just have to spend your honeymoon island hopping!  Flights between the islands are less than 45 minutes.  You’ll cover a lot of ground and eventually come to your own conclusion of which Hawaii Island is your best.
