Why Choose a Big Island Elopement

Big Island Elopements

We receive many inquires about having a Big Island elopement, and what makes the Big Island an ideal location. As a Big Island resident, I love everything about our island. And as a wedding planner and full time photographer here in Hawaii, I realize how lucky I am to live in Kona. We have it all – scenery, variety, perfect weather and stunning sunsets. The Big Island offers far less crowding than the other islands, so for elopements that means privacy and peace. Here is why you should choose a Big Island elopement!

Perfect weather for your Big Island elopement!

When trying to choose which destination location or island best suits them, couple’s have a lot to consider. Many of the Hawaiian Islands have wet weather year round, which leads to lush greens and rainbows. In Kailua Kona and the surrounding areas, we have nearly a dessert climate. This means less change of rain and wet weather on your wedding day. If this is a concern for you, a Kona or Waikoloa location could be perfect for you!

Unique and diverse scenery for your Hawaii elopement photos

The Big Island is the largest and newest of all the Hawaiian Islands. One thing that makes us very unique is the presence of lava! We live on active volcanoes, and they are the reason for our black sand and rugged coastlines. The lava and black sand make for a stunning and unique backdrop for your Big Island elopement. We love to take you out on the lava for dramatic and amazing elopement photos. We also have lots of waterfalls, private estates with sweeping cliffside views, etc… You can’t go wrong with a Big Island elopement!

West coast is the best coast!

We are SO lucky to be based on the west coast of the Big Island. This means you will have a front row seat to those amazing sunsets for for you Big Island elopement. The skies are typically stunning, and we have sunshine all year round. The west coast of the Big Island also consists of a very dry climate. So along with the beautiful sunset colors are clear skies. Perfect conditions for your Hawaii elopement! If you’re looking for the perfect place to enjoy Hawaii’s warm climate, friendly people and gorgeous sunsets, look no further.
