Kauai: The Wedding Paradise
Removed from the hoopla, noise and glare of the main island, the small island gem, Kauai (the “Garden Isle”) stands beckoning to become the idyllic setting for your wedding.
Amidst the fragrant landscape dotted by millions of flowers through out the year, birds sing, palms sway and waves splash in rhythmic patterns on sun kissed beaches.
Much of Kauai remains untouched by human development, yet it offers the ultimate vacation destination. You can enjoy horseback riding, deep-sea fishing, snorkeling, nature walks, golf, museums, parks, biking, camping, fishing, and kayaking.
There are several state parks to choose from including Na Pali Coast and State Park, Wailua River State Park, Anini Beach County Park, Polihale Beach Park, and Koke’e State Park. These parks offer water sports, sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling, picnicking, and camping. Remember your film. You’ll want to remember the sights you’ll see on Kauai!
If you’re a golfer, there are many golf courses to choose from, including Jack Nicklaus-designed golf courses. Perhaps you’d rather enjoy the scenery by visiting one of the many gardens with trails of beautiful plants and exotic birds. Do you prefer camping? The Division of Parks and Recreation offers camping permits for several of the beach parks. Maybe you’d like to charter a boat and go deep-sea fishing. Various game fish are attracted to the Garden Island because the Pacific currents swirl around Kauai. You can fish for Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Yellow Fin Tina, Amberjack, Snapper, and many more.
Helicopter tours are also offered on Kauai. Morning flights offer the best visibility. Kayaking down one of Kauai’s beautiful rivers is another way to see the island. Kauai also offers boat tours, and if you visit between the months of November and April, you may even see a Humpback whale.
I challenge you to discover a more beautiful place on earth! Romance thrives on weddings. Peace and happiness overcome family and friends. This makes the island of Kauai the perfect back drop for the most important day of your life.
Imagine a Kauai, Hawaii Wedding
Tiny by comparison at only 550 square miles, Kauai is the northernmost of the Hawaiian Islands and dates its’ age as 6 million years. Yet, it is only a 20 minute hop by plane from Honolulu. It is said to be the least developed of the islands yet it has outstanding accommodations and amenities. Not to mention some of the best beaches in the world.
If you are fortunate enough to be planning a wedding in Hawaii, consider the many options that the natural landscape affords. What a about a sunset wedding on one of the many beaches followed by an early evening picnic with champagne and local delicacies atop the nearby cliff. Casual, yet memorable, you and your guests are walking barefoot on the fine sand wearing colorful local dress engulfed by the scent of your lei’s, or the flowers strewn in your hair.
A native softly sings Hawaii wedding songs – you don’t know what he’s saying but it’s some of the most beautiful music your ears have ever heard.
White gauze tents stand breezy farther up the beach. White dresses, jeans, and bathing suits blare in the sun as the happy couple stands at the edge of the surf at high noon reading their promises to each other before a pastor. Your guests circle closer, straining to hear better, but your words are drowned by the clashing of the waves. This is luxurious, ultimate privacy, only the two of you will ever know your secret vows.
Pass the Details to a Pro
Yet, it’s not all romance. Reality demands tending. How about the marriage license, the photographer, or last minute hotel reservations for your unexpected aunt and family? Your wedding in Kauai need only be limited by your imagination and your pocket book.
