It's finally happened! You are engaged and now you have to start planning your Hawaii Wedding. One of the first choices couples have to decide when wedding planning is where are you gonna have this fabulous affair! With the world dealing with Covid-19, more and more people are postponing there dates and shifting to more outdoor venues with less guests. I personally love this because what can be more special and memorable than being in the great outdoors. The style options are endless when collaborating with nature and Kualoa Ranch offers a variety of outdoor venue options for your ceremony and reception.

If you weren't aware already, Kualoa is the site to numerous Hollywood movies. These include but not limited to Jurassic Park, Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Jumanji. So that alone is a pretty unique and fun detail. One of my favorite options Kualoa has is their Jumanji Venue. These grounds are in a remote valley location. Because of that all services and products such as water, lighting, electricity, restrooms, tent rental, tables & chairs is the responsibility of you to book and get set-up. Expect to have your own transportation to this venue also. The sweeping mountain views and vast space makes this an unforgettable spot for your Hawai'i Wedding.

VENUES

If you are looking for a beach side option, they have you covered with Secret Island. This location is set on white sandy beaches for that dreamy tropical island feel the people love. This spot is only available for ceremonies so you will have to celebrate your reception at one of their other stunning locales. Luckily everything is within a short drive of each other so travel is easy for you and your guests.


The Dragon Boat Lawn & Hale Nanea is a fun unique space with great history. This beautiful space is located at the base of the sacred 1000 ft high Kanehoalani mountain peak, , Paliku Gardens provides guests with beautiful views of Kane’ohe Bay, rolling pastures, green gardens, and iconic Mokoli’i Island aka “Chinaman’s Hat.” The site consists of two large lawn areas, an upper garden, as well as an open air pavilion. All the amenities you need to create a luxurious affair for your family and friends.


COST

One of the many reasons to choose Kualoa Ranch is the competitive price. The venues range from 2000-3000 a day and go down considerably if you choose a weekday date. With these unreal backdrops these are a steal for any luxe Destination Wedding.



CATERING

The most important aspect that I appreciate about this space is that you can truly get a farm to table experience here. They produce their own beef, oysters, produce and shrimp. Then you know that you are contributing to the local economy and helping the community.





Whichever you decide is best for your wedding you will want a fun quality photographer to capture all those candid moments.
