As the gateway to the Hawaiian Islands, Oahu is often where visitors experience the spirit of aloha for the first time. If your dream wedding destination includes a sophisticated city on the shores of stunning Pacific beaches set against the backdrop of an impressive volcanic crater, then Oahu is the Hawaiian island for you. With Hawaii’s cosmopolitan capital of Honolulu, which includes the fabled shores of Waikiki, Oahu offers romantic, beachside vistas as well as upscale hotels, gourmet restaurants, exciting nightlife and world-class shopping.

Perhaps your pleasure is a more secluded location.  You can find that as well on Oahu within a short drive.  Ko Olina and the north shore provide a distinct contrast to Honolulu, with amazing tropical resorts and some of the best surfing in the world.  Whether your wedding fantasies include a hotel with the utmost in elegance, Victorian traditions or a nature-filled backdrop, Oahu offers outstanding venues for your special day.
