    Hi Paul,

    What are the native Hawaiian flowers that you’ll be using on the wedding?

  2. Looking for a Wedding planner says:

    My fiancé and I have been together for quite a few years and have been talking about our wedding for a while now. This will be my third marriage but will be her first, so it’s been hard to agree on what type of wedding we wanted. Over the last year we have attended several weddings and started getting ideas for our own. This mostly became a list of what “not to do” when it came to our own. Recently we attended a really big over-the top wedding which was wonderful but my bride felt overwhelmed by it all and returned back to our first idea of eloping somewhere to save us the time and trouble of planning such a big affair. When I mentioned eloping in Hawaii and I showed her some pictures she was immediately interested and we decided it was time to make the decision and make it happen. We decided to plan for Feb. 29th because it is a special day for us both and it only happens every 4 years so the clock started ticking. Because I am the master planner of all our vacations most of the responsibility has fallen on me to plan our wedding, so I’m doing a lot of research online and developing a plan for our dream elopement.

    Because it will only be her and I (no guests) we are looking for a very simple service, nothing to elaborate (the natural beauty of a hawaiian beach is enough). Maybe some flowers or simply a heart drawn in the sand would be enough. I’ve watched quite a few Hawaiian wedding videos and find them to be simple yet beautiful. I like how they focus on the unity of two people joining together in marriage rather than making it a religious service. We would like to write some vows of our own, or simply have the chance to say a few words to each other during the service. We would be interested in having the conch shell blown and exchanging lei’s but no need for a sand vessel ceremony. I would love to have someone play ukulele for a couple songs. Other than that we would like to keep it pretty simple. I’m pretty open to locations but so far I really like Waialae Beach and Sherwood Forrest Beach because of the wonderful sand and palm trees. Because it will be a Saturday I know we will need the service to be either early in the morning or later in the evening. Portlock Beach would also be a possibility if we need to plan into the golden hour/sunset.

    Because we won’t have any guests having photo and video is important to us, so we can try and share our special day with our friends and family. I think we would be more interested in spending our budget dollars on taking lots of romantic pictures rather than on tiki torches and canopies.

    A little more about myself and my bride. We are from St. Paul, Minnesota and both work in retail management. While our interests are varied we do share the same quirky sense of humor and seem to be laughing a lot whenever we we are together. We love to travel and in the last 2 years have gone to Las Vegas, New Orleans and San Francisco. This will be her first trip to the Islands but will be my second. She’s a cat person and I’ma dog person but unfortunately neither of our pets will be able to join us in Hawaii, they have a previous engagement with a pet-sitter here back home. I dropped a couple of pics at the end of the email if you would like to put a couple of happy faces to our story.

    Thank you so much for your consideration and let me know if I can provide you with more information on making our Hawaiian elopement wedding the dream we know it can be.

  3. Hello!

    My name is Fred and I recently got engaged to my fiancee Kristen. We are dreaming of doing a destination wedding in Hawaii on one of the many fantastic beaches of Oahu or the Big island. The time frame that we are looking at is Oct 2020 – Jan 2021 so we are in the beginning stages of planning our wedding. We would have no more than 23 guests, with that number likely being lower. We are currently in the process of looking at ceremony locations, getting price estimates, and looking for wedding coordinators.

    Regarding ceremony locations…

    I have been reading online about Wiki permits for commercial activity “right of entry” permits online and noticed there were some limitations on arches and chairs. Though, I noticed that there are some fantastic beach wedding photos/videos on your website with beautiful/elaborate ceremony arches, chairs, aisles, etc. I was wondering if you knew where it is possible, on beaches, to have a ceremony with arches/chairs/torches vs. just loose flowers. Is it a certain part of the beach (Ex. ## feet above the “tidal area”) or are only certain beaches permitted in general?

    I noticed you have a few locations listed on your website and I wasn’t sure if those were flexible or not. (If we could pick our own beach…)

    If it is helpful, I am going to list our favorite ceremony locations below (to see if this is possible at any or all of the locations). Our general “aesthetic” is a beach with mountains/cliffs nearby or in the background.

    Oahu
    1) North shore Beach
    2) Kahana Bay Beach
    3) Ka’a’awa Beach

    Big Island (Do you guys do anything on islands other than Oahu?)
    1) Waipio Valley Beach
    – I also understand getting anything/everything down to this beach offers a logistical problem too… but would like to know what is possible
    2) Punalu’u Beach

    Any guidance/clarity you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Fred
