Our North Shore Hawaii Wedding Location: Kawela Bay

Posted by Rachel H. on Jul 18, 2019 5:44:04 PM

 

Everything You Need to Know About Kawela Bay

 

Kawela Bay is our top North Shore ceremony location. For couples staying on the North Shore, the drive to many of our other Hawaii wedding locations is a bit far, and considering the proximity to Turtle Bay and other North Shore accomodations, Kawela Bay proves to be a great choice. 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 sand, calm blue water, and one of the most amazing Banyan tress in Hawaii.

The combination of the beach and forest gives couples a "two-in-one-location” photo opportunity, similar to our Sherwood Forest Beach location (for couples looking for a Waimanalo beach wedding).

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 ;)

Hawaii Destination Wedding - Getting Married in Paradise

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. We often get requests for a Waimanalo beach wedding, likely because it's attention as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and Sherwood Forest Beach is the best Waimanalo Bay has to offer.

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.
