Best Places to Get Married on Kauai

Kauai is the oldest yet enchanting island in the Hawaiian chain. It is known for its romantic movie screen beaches, playful waterfalls and majestic mountains. Many travel to Kauai for their honeymoon or a paradise wedding. It usually is a wedding of a life-time for most, in the most beautiful place in the world. The exotic flowers and natural scenery will leave a precious memory in all who witness Kauai’s lovely embrace. Do you want to know the best places on Kauai to get married? Below are a few of the top spots for a Kauai wedding!

Na ‘Aina Kai Botanical Gardens

Na `Aina Kai Botanical Gardens is by far one of the best places to get married in Kauai. It is located after mile marker 21 heading to the North shore on HI-56 N. Take a right on Wailapa Rd and it will be on your right side. There is a man-made waterfall, with a Japanese tea house at the top of the hill. There you can hide from your families before the Kauai wedding ceremony begins. Imagine taking pictures at the maze or swing on the two-way wooden swings. Maybe pose with the bronze sculptures or simply take beautiful pictures by the ocean view. Make sure to hire a wedding planner, because you might just want to enjoy its view and take it all in. For more wedding information, email them at: events@naainakai.org.


Kokee is located on the Westside of Kauai, after Waimea High School. Take HI-50 W and State Hwy 550 and drive onto Waimea Canyon road until you find a perfect place to have your wedding. There are many places and you will have a great time in the woods with your love ones. The cold air is refreshing and the tall redwood trees are a sight to see. You can even have your Hawaii friends or the locals help you make fresh Maile leis, because that is where the vines are from. If you are eloping the residents are sure to help. A fresh Maile lei for the men brings them honor and a sense of pride. Be sure to ask a wedding planner to secure the cabins if that is an option you wanted or any permits you may need in order to have a wedding up at the Kokee State Park. There is a season for hunting in certain areas, so asking a resident or local wedding planner where to get married is recommended ahead of time.

Kalapaki Beach

Kalapaki Beach, is a well-known place and convenient place to get married on the Eastside if you are in a hurry. It is just five minutes away from the Lihue airport, and is very easy to find. If you are staying at the Kauai Marriott hotel which is located in front of the beach then ask your concierge how to arrange a viewing of the beach front. There you can plan your chairs and wedding set. They will hire a priest or an official who can marry you off into the sunset. It is usually crowed with beach goers, but on your wedding day, your wedding area will be blocked off ahead of time, so you can relax and enjoy your beautiful day.
