Couples from around the world are drawn to Hawaii for its undeniably romantic atmosphere and irresistible charm. Whether a rustic ranch or luxury beachfront hotel, each of the Hawaiian islands specializes in its own type of magical wedding venue. Here’s Culture Trip’s guide to seven of the best.
The rustic romance of the antique sugar mill ruins is matched by touches of Hawaii’s natural beauty. The main courtyard houses hanging vines, glittering chandeliers and flowery trellises open to the elements. This enchanting location is one of a kind and is seeped in the history of the island.
The St Regis Princeville wedding venue is one of the most luxurious in all of Hawaii. The ceremony takes place beachside under two towering kamani trees with the Na Molokama Makaha Mountain and various waterfalls in the distance. The sophisticated reception area opens up to a large lanai overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
A wedding at Volcano House is like no other. This unique venue is not fancy by any means, but is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream. Take photos throughout the geologic area, watch the glow of the lava as the sun sets and hold the reception on the crater rim overlooking the active volcano. The bride and groom can then honeymoon out in the wilderness in a rustic treehouse hidden in the Hawaiian rainforest – some even include a fireplace, terrace with a hot tub and an outdoor shower.
