How to Have a Stress-Free Destination Wedding in Hawaii

Posted by Rachel H. on Oct 31, 2019 9:53:00 AM

 

Don’t let your big day become a big stress! We have put together some quick tips from our previous couples and coordinators to help make sure you are able to enjoy every part of your wedding.

 

Be Okay Asking for Help

Is it your first time to Hawaii and not sure which locations to choose? Which hotel to book? Where to have a dinner reception? Not sure if you should book a rental car? Let us know!

Although your wedding coordinators are not travel agents, they know their island home very well. We'd be happy to share some insight or offer our opinion. Even if you have never been to Hawaii before, you already have ohana (family) here to help. You can call or schedule a time for us to call you if you'd like to chat. Sometimes just getting in touch is enough to calm those nerves, and we always like talking to our couples :)

Hawaiian Weddings - What Makes Them so Special?

Posted by Rachel H. on Oct 17, 2019 5:30:00 PM

 

When we use the word “Hawaiian” to talk about a Hawaii wedding, we’re referring to the Hawaiian elements that make a wedding in paradise so special. While your ceremony will have traditional elements, there are unique moments that are rooted in this wonderful culture.

If you’ve checked out our Hawaii wedding or vow renewal packages, you’ll see they all have the following:

Officiant & Romantic Marriage Ceremony Including:

  • Enchanting Unity Sand Ceremony
  • Vows - Traditional (repeated) or Customized (written)
  • Children’s Ceremony (For Blended Families)
  • Blessing Of The Wedding Rings
  • Traditional Hawaiian Lei Exchange With Two Keepsake Shell Leis

Many of our couples want to know more about what these items are and how the ceremony “works.” If we haven’t yet had the pleasure of chatting or emailing with you, here’s the inside scoop.

Choosing A Song for Your Highlight Video 

Posted by Rachel H. on Oct 3, 2019 6:58:00 PM

 

If you choose to capture your special day with a ceremony and highlight video, it's time to start thinking about your wedding video song.

Video is included in Lehua wedding packages and above, and you can add it to any package. You'll have two videos: (1) a video copy of the ceremony beginning to end and (2) a highlight video including clips from the ceremony and clips from the photo shoot. 

You get to choose a song for your highlight video. We know each couple is unique, so we want to give you time to pick a song that fits your personality and style.

Because of copyright restrictions, the song needs to come from songfreedom.com, a website with over a million free songs to choose from and a selection of premium songs.

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 ;)
