Elopements in Hawaii

Elopements in Hawaii.

The Hawaiian Island of Oahu is indisputably most famous for her beautiful coastal shoreline, where white sandy beaches, and volcanic rock, meets the breathtaking turquoise water of the Pacific ocean. Because of its ethereal beauty, the island is undeniably one of the most romantic elopement destinations in the world. I am happy that I live here and as a wedding florist & stylist on Oahu, I wanted to share some of my favorite beaches and our floral elopement packages to hopefully inspire you to have your elopement with us here in Hawaii!

Eloping with just a small gathering of friends or family will give your wedding that feeling of being just about you and your partner. Not only are you on a gorgeous jaw dropping island, you also have alot less to worry about & much less expense of having to produce a wedding with hundreds of people. An elopement to Hawaii becomes an intimate ceremony on a white sand beach that will transition into your honeymoon trip afterwards that can include island hoping to the other Hawaiian Islands while you are here. A smaller romantic wedding ceremony will also evoke an intimate energy that destination weddings are so famous for.


My favorite area is the southeast side of Oahu with the long white sand beaches on one side and the epic scenic mountains on the other side. The beauty is jaw dropping. The island of Oahu is one of the diverse areas and has the prettiest beaches in Hawaii.


My all time favorite sunrise beach is the beautiful Waimanalo Beach located on the southeastern corner of Oahu. The beach is very long with a wide open view of the crystal aqua blue Pacific ocean. With five miles of the most softest white sand, it is truly a tranquil magical beach to get married on. We suggest sunrise weddings and elopements at Waimanalo beach. The sunset is not visible on this side of the island where you can see those majestic colorful sunsets so if you are looking for a sunset beach, we have other beaches to recommend on the west and north side of the island. Waimanalo beach is located 40 minutes from Waikiki.


This scenic beach is located on the southeastern tip of the island surrounded with lava rock, white sand beaches and the famous rabbit island across the bay. There are some secluded parts of the beach where you can have a quiet ceremony and the photography options are jaw dropping here. Having a sunrise or sunset wedding will work best for your wedding here as the sun is too intense in the middle of the day for this area.
Although there is not a vivid sunset as the sun sets behind the mountains, it creates beautiful back lighting that will work magic for your photography images!! Makapuu beach is located 30 minutes from Waikiki.


The north shore of Oahu has a whole different vibe for a having your wedding. Long & wide white sand beaches with majestic colorful sunsets is what it is all about on this side of the island. There are several beaches in this area but I favor Papailoa beach on the north shore of Oahu close to Turtle Bay Resort. Mostly secluded, this beach has a pretty scenic sunset view. During the winter months there may be large waves crashing as there are no larger reefs to protect this beach. I would suggest this beach for a spring, summer or fall sunset wedding. The north shore of oahu is about an hours drive from Waikiki.
