Wedding Venues in Honolulu, HI
Can’t bear the thought of your special day hounded by the prying eyes of tourists? Book the Bayer Estate and don’t sacrifice your beachfront dream wedding! An old craftman-style home located on a private beach just 15-minutes from downtown Honolulu, this estate comes private, gorgeous, functional, and relaxing for weddings of 60 or less. You will marvel over the spectacular color and relaxing process of getting married in this private house on the beach in Aina Haina.
Experience a wedding ceremony like the Hawaiian royalty of yesterday. Built in 1842, Kawaihao Church is nicknamed “The Westminster Abbey of the Pacific" and stands in downtown Honolulu. It is a national historic site, with portraits of Hawaiian royalty gracing the second floor and services in Hawaiian and English still conducted every Sunday. Kawaihao was the first Christian church built on the island of Oahu, serving as a tangible reminder of the royalty of yesteryear.
With opulent suites and beachside gazebos, splurge on your guests at The Kahala, named for the exclusive Honolulu neighborhood it’s nestled within. Here, the orchids smell of chocolate and resident dolphins frolic in the private lagoon. White sand swimming beaches complement the elegant white gazebos oft adorned with wedding ceremony flowers. The lavish Kahala Hotel & Resort attracts celebrities, presidents, and international royalty; the staff prides itself on being discreet but always on hand.
With the infamous Diamond Head in the background, the yacht harbor next door, and the ocean stretching out from Waikiki behind you, Magic Island comes highly recommended for sunset photos. Easily accessible from Ala Moana, this peninsula hosts sand, lawn, coconut palms, beaches, and surprisingly few beach-goers making it ideal for wedding photo opportunities for those who don’t want to rent an expensive gazebo or travel too far outside of Waikiki. Book an officiant for a quick Hawaii weekend wedding ceremony!
A favorite for big wedding receptions, graduations, and other giant celebrations, the Pacific Beach Hotel is home to a 280,000-gallon oceanarium, the only one of its kind. The hotel caters to parties of up to 750 guests, and can take care of everything from the wine to the parking to the cake. Their in-house bakery also produces a variety of other cakes and pies. Located in Waikiki on the Diamond Head side near the beach, you will be in the center of the tourist hustle right on the strip.
