Hawaii is home to waterfalls, breathtaking views and miles and miles of beaches. So many picturesque views to have your wedding with close friends and family or just the two of you. Below are our top five places to say I Do.

Hawaii Wedding Venue Ideas

Kaui Wedding Venue: Kaui wedding venue is located on Kauai, the oldest island in Hawaii and is a twenty minute flight from Honolulu. With verdant rain forests, angelic white sand kissing the sapphire ocean, breathtaking waterfalls, spectacular desert land and majestic mountains, there are a ton of amazing things to do and see for your Hawaiian destination wedding.

The Grand Hyatt: This is our pick for a venue in Hawaii. With  several options for your ceremony and enough ocean view rooms for you and all your guests, the entire trip is sure to be beautiful. The Big Island Wedding Venue: The Big Island is bigger than all of the other Hawaiian Islands combined and boasts 11 of the world’s 13 climactic zones within it. It offers a playground of adventure from deep sea fishing, water skiing in azure blue waters, hiking in lush rain forests, trekking across vast desert, and mountaineering the snow topped Mauna Kea.

Puakea Ranche: This is our selection for a private Hawaiian wedding. With just four private vacation homes set upon colorful acres of land, you are taken to a place where time slows down and you get to live out your special moments with only a few others in the proximity. See a Real Rustic Bohemian Elopement in Hawaii at the ranch here.

Maui Wedding Venue: Maui is a great place to sit on the sand and see the Humpback whales, unwind on a sandy beach, and just take in all the beauty. Our Maui wedding venue pick is Dragon Fruit Farm, a diversified USDA certified organic farm located in West Maui about a five minute drive from Lahaina, with stunning ocean views, plenty of parking.

Lanai Wedding Venue: Lanai is a more laid-back and intimate atmosphere, with no stop lights and hardly any paved roads. This is the place to truly get away from it all. For intimate weddings with just the two of you off to a luxury destination. For several ranges in wedding packages, Four Seasons Lana’i at Manele Bay can accommodate. They also list all of their packages online and can take care of anything you need on this remote island.

Oahu Kualoa Ranch: From beach, to garden, to authentic island paradise retreats, Kualoa features an array of options for you to get married. Oahu Kualoa Ranch is located on the northeastern side of Oʻahu in the Hawaiian countryside, it is 45 minutes from Honolulu. The ranch terrain varies from dense rainforest to broad open valleys and from beautiful white sand beaches to verdant cliff faces. You may recognize this location – a handful of shows and movies have been filmed here like -50 First Dates and the ever so popular TV show, Lost.

    Hi Guys!

    It was just brought to our attention, at Stone Fox Bride, that you gave credit of the Glenda wedding dress to Stone Cold Fox. They are not affiliated with us and we were hoping you could fix this also on your Pinterest. The names are so close it gets confusing! Thank you for your consideration.

    I do trust all the concepts you’ve offered for your post.
    They are really convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too brief for newbies.
    Could you please extend them a little from subsequent time?
    Thanks for the post.

    Beautiful photography and great information on this site. As a resident of Maui, I would have to say that the south Maui beaches were sadly missed as one of your top 5 spots to say your “I Do’s”.

    Amazing blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little
    lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform
    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any tips? Bless you!
