Sandy Beach - A Hawaii Beach Wedding Location

Posted by Rachel H. on May 9, 2019 2:10:00 PM

 

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SANDY BEACH

 

Sandy Beach is located on the southeast coast of Oahu and is a well-loved beach by locals and visitors alike.

As with all our Hawaii beach wedding locations, we have photos and videos in our Sandy Beach wedding locations gallery, but we like sharing all the details about each location to help you decide which will be best for your ceremony!

Note: Sandy Beach is best for weekday ceremonies or early mornings on the weekends. Weekends get very crowded with the local population.

 

While we wouldn't normally hold the ceremony this close to the waves, your photographer will likely encourage you to get your feet wet for some shots ;)

Posted by Rachel H. on Apr 18, 2019 10:00:00 PM

 

When it comes to destination weddings, there are a lot of places you could go. We're a little biased, but there aren't a lot of people who'd argue against a Hawaii destination wedding or vow renewal. It has everything you could want: natural beauty, friendly people, tons to do, and world-class cuisine, and we know the best places to get married in Hawaii. Hawaii truly is paradise.

 

Your wedding photos will be amazing!

Why Have a Destination Wedding in Hawaii?

There are several reasons we believe Hawaii is the best spot for a destination wedding. Here are the top reasons we hear from our couples:

 

1. Amazing Hawaii Wedding Photos!

Picture yourself in wedding attire on one of the world's best beaches. Your cameraman is shooting away, and your videographer has the tape rolling. It's a postcard moment, and you look amazing. Everything from the comforting breeze to your fresh Hawaiian bouquet is perfect.

Maybe you're eloping and it's just the two of you. Maybe you've brought a large wedding party. Either way, you're in one of the most beautiful spots on earth, and you're going to have the photos to remember it for the rest of your life.

Five Regrets Couples Have from Their Hawaii Wedding Day

Posted by Rachel H. on Jan 17, 2019 8:15:00 AM

There are certain moments in your life that you only get once. Your wedding day is definitely one of them. All couples do their best to plan ahead and make sure their day includes everything they want. However, hindsight can truly be 20/20.

Here are the top five regrets couples have from their wedding. Hopefully this helps you plan accordingly for your big day!  


  1. Wearing the Wrong Shoes

Select shoes so you’ll be comfortable! Gentlemen, if you are getting new shoes, make sure to break them in beforehand. Ladies, high heels may look great with your dress, but are they going to kill your feet? And then there's the sand, of course! Or the lava rocks at some of our wedding locations. Not great spots for heels.

Our Favorite Hawaii Wedding Location: Sherwood Forest Beach

Posted by Rachel H. on Dec 27, 2018 8:28:00 AM

 

Everything You Need to Know About Sherwood Forest Beach

 

Sherwood Forest Beach (aka Waimanalo Bay) is one of our most popular Hawaii beach wedding locations. Not only is it a great beach for a wedding, but it’s also a personal favorite of many of us here at Weddings of Hawaii. Although we have descriptions and photos of all our wedding locations, we wanted to share more details that may help you in choosing the perfect beach for the big day!

As you probably have seen in the pictures, this location features soft white sand, clear turquoise blue water, and the striking ironwood tree forest.

The stark contrast between the beach and forest gives couples a "two-in-one-location” photo opportunity. Because of its logistics, it is also our most secluded beach location.

Elope in Hawaii - Hawaii Elopement Packages, Locations, and Tips! 

Posted by Rachel H. on Nov 29, 2018 10:33:00 AM

 

“They made my wedding day so stress-free, and everything went as smoothly as planned. My husband and I planned to elope to Hawaii with our two kids and were very pleased with Weddings of Hawaii.” -Charisse M.

 

Elope in Hawaii with the one you love!

 

Want to Elope in Hawaii? - Why Hawaii Is Perfect for an Elopement

At Weddings of Hawaii, we have become experts on elopements and have helped countless couples plan their Hawaiian dream wedding. Elopements are a great way to have an affordable destination wedding in a beautiful atmosphere.

Why Elope?

Eloping is perfect for the spontaneous couple, but it’s also great for those who like to plan ahead. As opposed to a traditional wedding, an elopement is a beautiful way to keep your ceremony intimate and focused on what is most important for you and your partner.

Additionally, elopements avoid the excessive stress that planning a traditional wedding can have. Destination wedding companies understand how to help take away that stress, making your elopement as stress-free as possible.

Finally, an elopement is usually much more affordable than a wedding at home. We wrote an article on how much a Hawaiian wedding costs, and many of our guests are surprised they can have a wedding and honeymoon for much cheaper than a traditional wedding.

Wedding of Hawaii has been helping couples plan their dream wedding on the beautiful beaches of Hawaii since 1978, and our wedding coordinators are always available to answer any questions you may have.

But Why Hawaii?
