Create the destination wedding of your dreams on Oahu where multiple venues and price points make it easy to match your vision and budget.
What’s your dream Oahu wedding location? Do you envision a sunset beach wedding, a magnificent resort, or a botanical garden? Have you considered a private oceanfront estate, an aquarium, or even a palace? Oahu’s wide choice of romantic wedding venues also include boutique hotels, magical waterfalls, spacious ranches, private yachts, historic churches, and museums. Wonderful restaurants and creative spaces await your rehearsal dinner, post wedding brunch, and other related wedding activities.
If you prefer the grandeur, full service, and comprehensive amenities that come with holding your wedding at a major resort, Waikiki is home to stellar properties like the Halekulani, the Royal Hawaiian, and the Moana Surfrider. The Kahala Hotel & Resort is a secluded getaway just 10 minutes from Waikiki’s hustle and bustle. Or spend your wedding festivities on Oahu’s wild and dramatic North Shore at Turtle Bay Resort or over on the gorgeous Leeward Coast at the Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina.
Private Estates and Non-Resort Venues
Oahu offers a spectacular range of breathtaking non-resort wedding venues. If you seek a private oceanfront retreat, consider Bayer Estate east of Diamond Head, Hale Koa Estate, or Loulu Palm Farm, both on the North Shore. Seek out the many locations at scenic Kualoa, a ranch and private nature reserve that stretches across mountains and valleys to the sea, on Oahu’s northeast coast. Lanikuhonua on the Leeward Coast has three stunning oceanfront sites for weddings. Historic Dillingham Ranch is a beautiful, off the beaten path venue with Hawaii’s largest coconut tree grove, an elegant ranch house, and private accommodations. If you want to feel like royalty, plan your wedding at Iolani Palace, built by King David Kalakaua, Hawaii’s second-to-last reigning monarch, in the nineteenth century.
Oahu also has loads of venues for welcome cocktail receptions, rehearsal dinners, and morning after brunches. In Waikiki, head to oceanfront Rumfire or Sky Waikiki with its unrivaled views for a welcome cocktail reception. Chinatown has some of Honolulu’s most innovative chef driven eateries like Senia and The Pig & The Lady, and popular spots for cocktails like The Tchin! Tchin! Bar.
Explore these Oahu venues and you are sure to find the right ones for your destination wedding celebrations.
