Affectionately called the “Heart of Hawaii,” Oʻahu has recently experienced a renaissance. This new energy has made Oʻahu the Hawaiian go-to for weddings and honeymoons. Beating with the rhythm that simultaneously embodies big-city energy, laid-back surf-town charm and timeless tradition, this island literally has something for everyone.
Having recently celebrated its first birthday, the Four Seasons Oʻahu Resort at Ko Olina is Oʻahu’s newest gem. Considered a sacred place by Hawaiian royalty, Ko Olina literally means “place of joy.” Located 30 minutes from Honolulu International Airport, the property offers fully customizable wedding packages for all budgets. Whether your vision includes sand-between-your-toes vows on the beach as the sun sets over the ocean, or a ceremony in an intimate light-filled chapel set amid whispering palms and wandering streams, the Four Seasons promises off-the-charts tropical romance. The property features more than two dozen postcard-worthy locales for indoor and outdoor receptions for two to 2,000.
Overlooking the island’s west coast, the resort’s amenities read like a vacation wish list, including golf, tennis, water sports and a nearby marina for easy access to snorkeling, deep sea fishing, whale watching and more.
For a once-in-a-lifetime excursion, the Earth, Wind and Fire day charter includes a private helicopter tour of the island of Hawaii’s stunning beaches, active volcanoes and waterfalls. You’ll also be well-fed; a gourmet five-course Chef’s Table with wine pairings is part of the package.
For the all-encompassing Hawaiian experience, follow your heart to Oʻahu. She will charm, dazzle and welcome you with open arms and limitless opportunities.
