HOW TO ELOPE IN HAWAI'I

Imagine your perfect wedding day

IF YOU COULD DO ANYTHING, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

How many times have you heard the phrase “If we could do it all again…”? We've heard it ALOT and honestly wish we'd eloped for our own wedding. We want to help you create the most memorable day you can dream up, and skip the headache of planning that huge wedding?

Choose your dream location

MOUNTAINS, BEACHES, CANYONS, OH MY!

02

As a destination wedding location, Hawaii has much more to offer than simply beach-side resorts! Can’t decide between the mountains or the ocean?! Choose both! It’s relatively easy to get the best of both worlds, because no matter where you go, you’re never far from the coast! Make your plans to island hop, or spend your whole destination wedding exploring one island.

Make it an adventure

YOU DESERVE TO CELEBRATE YOUR LOVE

What’s your ideal day? If you could craft an entire day from sunrise to sunset what would you be doing, where would go? What would you eat? What music would you listen to? Would you skydive? Have a picnic? Hammock in the park? We want to help you create your dream day from start to finish documenting the entire thing for you to remember forever. We’ll work together to craft a timeline of your wedding day filled with your favorite things.

03

Bring the people who matter most

YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO THIS ALONE

Having a small group of friends or family in attendance means you don’t have to worry about all the logistical headaches associated with hosting a large number of guests. Your photos will also reflect the intimacy, since there won’t be a crowd of people getting in the way! The perks of having people close to you there? One of them can marry you! OR If you want a truly “just us” experience you can plan the day around just the two of you. Perks of working with hubby-wifey photographers? We’re not just an awkward third wheel, we’re another adventureous couple that want to capture the adventure of a lifetime for you. Plus, Kelsi is a Hawaii officient and can legally sign your Hawaii marriage license!

ISLANDS

THE GARDEN ISLE

RUGGED & UNTOUCHED

BIG ISLAND
KAUAI

For a truly unique set of scenic backdrops, Hawaii island (Big Island) offers everything from alpine mountains, manta rays, cloud forests, and lava flows! Make your elopement epic with the beauty of Big Island!

It’s nicknamed the garden island for a reason! The lush green forests, steep jagged cliffs, and limited amount of traffic makes Kauai our favorite place to visit! If you’re looking for remote locations, seek out Kauai as a must-visit adventure.

VALLEY ISLE

FRIENDLY ISLE

MAUI
MOLOKAI

One of the more rugged islands, Molokai is known for its dramatic cliffs and secluded beaches. If you're looking for an off-the-beaten-path adventure, Molokai is your island.

A lover’s paradise, Maui is reminiscent of every other island, with high altitude craters, jungle waterfalls, windswept coastlines, and white sandy beaches. There are so many great options for a memorable elopement in Maui.

THE GATHERING PLACE

OAHU

While there are plenty of great places to elope on Oahu, many visitors do not realize just how bustling the island really is. For instance, finding a secluded area for a private elopement is a bit more difficult. On the other hand, the nightlife is perk the other islands can't offer.

You don't need a minister

We do this, because we believe you don't need someone to tell you that you are married, you can tell each other and the world that yourselves. No one understands your promise like you and your partner do. You are married because you say you are married, not someone else.

Alternatively, if you did want a religious ceremony or more traditional officiant we can recommend some other amazing vendors. We love offering this service because it doesn't inhibit where we go on your elopement day, because the day is center entirely around what you want to do (and if that's hiking 10 miles up a mountain we're totally up for it).

You don't need someone to tell you that you are married, you can tell each other and the world that yourselves. Of course, you can have your pastor, best friend, or family member marry you too!

We specialize in helping couples create their own unique self-uniting ceremonies, rehearse them and then direct them in a minimal way, all while taking photos or video. Kelsi is ordained and licensed in Hawai'i. So, we are able to complete any documentation as your "officiant".

Hawai’i legally requires that an ordained officiant that’s registered with the state “solemnize the marriage.” Basically, someone needs to legally pronounce you married. If you're having Kelsi marry you, this can be a super simple “congrats your married” or more elaborate ceremony (lei exchanges, ring ceremony, handfasting, etc.), depending on your wishes.

It's actually a lot easier and more relaxed than having someone that is there whose only purpose is to preside over the experience! No one understands your promise like you and your partner do. You are married because you say you are married.... not someone else.
