Getting Married in Hawaii

Hawaii is considered by most a dream wedding destination. With lush tropical vegetation, thick forests, beautiful scenic beaches and majestic volcanic mountains (including the famous Kilauea Volcano), Hawaii presents a vast array of backdrops for stunning wedding photographs. There are mainly six major islands to choose from when considering your wedding ceremony and celebration in Hawaii: Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Maui, and Hawaii’s Big Island. You’ll find that each island has its own unique personality and offers its own distinctiveness for wedding ceremonies and wedding photographs.

Kauai, the oldest island in the Hawaiian chain is filled with outdoor adventures and romantic escapades for your wedding enjoyment, including the gorgeous beaches of the coconut coast, the massive cliffs at Napali Coast and the Waimea Canyon, which is known at the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. Oahu is the well known home to the state capitol of Honolulu, and this island contains a majority of Hawaii's population and tourists. You’ll find there a fantastic mix of natural and cultural wonders that will tuck in your wedding celebration, from the famous Pearl Harbor memorials and museums to the world renown beaches of Waikiki Beach and the waves of North Shore. Molokai is known for being an island that stays true to its Hawaiian traditions, which allows for you to take in a naturally tranquil setting for your wedding. If you desire a true getaway for your wedding ceremony and wedding pictures, chose Lanai. Without a single traffic light, you can truly find luxury, romance and privacy for your wedding on Lanai. Maui, a dream island wedding destination, is home to what many believe to be the best beaches in the world, which is an added blessing for your wedding photographs. With historic areas like Lahaina and visually spectacular scenes on the road to Hana, Maui will take your wedding ceremony and pictures up to new heights. Take advantage of Hawaii’s Big Island, which is larger than all of the other Hawaiian Islands combined. Hawaii's Big Island, is large enough to contain 11 of the world’s 13 climactic zones, from sandy beaches to snowcapped mountains, which can add great dynamics to your wedding wishes. You can also enjoy everything from waterfalls, seascapes and massive volcano’s which all add to the flavor of truly memorable wedding moments that will be captured by your wedding photojournalist.

Birthplace of the “Aloha Spirit”, surfing, the hula, the lei and poi, you will have no problem surrounding yourself with unique cultural tastes to make your wedding day an event to remember forever. The warm citizens of Hawaii and the steady climate add to the comfort and enjoyment of your wedding that will indeed shine through in your wedding pictures.
