Hiya… I am getting married on the North shore of Oahu. It’s our favorite place and I am doing the ceremony about 5 and that way I can have sunset photos. We are using Hawaiin Barefoot Weddings.. they have great packages and prices.

I’m getting married on the North Shore of Oahu too, because Fiance and I are both from there. We’re honeymooning on Maui, but I haven’t been in a long time . I think you’ll be able to find a great place on any island you pick. I think sunset would be beautiful, though you might want to get some pictures before thew edding, before it gets dark. I’m not sure about the privacy issue, but do make sure to get a permit. A lot of beaches are very busy but my photographer has done a lot of beach weddings, and it looks like there are places you can go that are often fairly private.

We looked into getting married in HI, but some important family couldn’t make it so we stayed stateside. However we were leaning toward Tiki Moon Villas becuase you have the option of renting out the whole place for your event. Here is the website if you want to check them out. The owner Azlina is wonderful and extremely helpful. http://www.tikimoonvillas.com/tiki-moon-villas-intro

We’re looking at Hawaii for a destination wedding. If we go that direction, we’ll fly our parents out with us and invite everyone else to come along for a vacation where we’ll just happened to get hitched.

I have done research to price out various options, and right now I favor the Big Island for its unique vistas. We specifically don’t want a beach wedding because we do just about everything but hit the beach when we’ve been out there. If we pick the Big Island, we’ll probably pick a lava field in VNP or maybe even on the shore in Pu’uhonua o Honaunau, assuming they allow weddings there like VNP.

The second option is to rent a house on the North Shore of Oahu and do it in the backyard there. The reason I’d only do the North Shore if we choose Oahu is because it’s not the crazy insanity of Waikiki. Sure, it’s much slower and you experience much more of the “island time,” but that’s what we like about Hawaii.

@BrookeBQ:  We’re getting married in Maui–there are a lot of nice secluded options–if you get in touch with a wedding planner they’ll know where to go

Another nice option is Kula Botanical Garden–the grounds are gorgeous and you can pay about 100 bucks to get married after 4 when the park closes (but there are still plenty of hours of daylight)

The North Shore has the laid back, small town feeling that I LOVE! We are renting a house on the North Shore and it will be awesome to married on the beach in that wonderful area.

I am getting married at a private estate right outside Honolulu. You are sandwiched on the sea with views of  Hanauma Bay and Diamondhead. Diana Caro-Salvador of Oahu Wedding is amazing! Google her!

 

Maui- There is a sugar mill that has some amazing photos. Maui was my first choice but airfare was $400 more per person, so we switched to Oahu.

 

Hawaii is Hawaii. It is gorgeous everywhere.
