Kualoa Ranch Private Nature Reserve is a 4,000 acre wedding venue location on Oahu, Hawaii, about 22 miles outside of Waikiki, on the eastern shores of the island. Managed and owned by eight generations of the Judd-Morgan family, who are committed to preserving the culture and natural beauty of the land, it is a beautiful and unique venue for weddings. If Kualoa looks familiar in pictures, it is probably because it has had over 170+ Hollywood Movies and TV shows filmed since Elvis came back in the 1950's! The ranch has also been featured in other blockbusters such as Jurassic Park, Jurassic World, LOST, Kong:Skull Island, 50 First Dates, Hawaii Five-0 and more.
Located at the base of the Kanehoalani Mountain peak, the amazing tropical Paliku Gardens can accommodate up to 100 guests in the open-aired pavilion and 250 guest on the lush lawn area. Paliku has been the site of a few celebrity events including Michelle Obama and the Dalai Lama.
Kualoa Ranch & Private Nature Reserve allows you to design your own wedding celebration and use your own catering, bartenders, florists, etc. Kualoa is just being the amazing back drop for your special day.

Paliku Gardens - Best Hawaii Outdoor Venue Ever
Leila was very communicative throughout the entire process and made sure that we were always on the same page. I was given a preferred vendor list early on, which is how I found many vendors including my amazing planner/coordinator. Kualoa Ranch in general has a lot of experience with many great vendors that I was already interested in which made me confident that the wedding would go smoothly and it did.
My favorite part about having our perfect day at Paliku Gardens was the view. It honestly speaks for itself and is probably the most memorable part of our wedding for our guests. The views are unbelievable and as someone who was born and raised in Hawaii, it was still so breathtaking. I feel like I saved so much money on decor because the venue does most of it for you!
Captured our dream wedding in Hawaii
The venue we picked was Moli’i Gardens, we were lucky enough to be one of the last couples to get married there! The grand stairs and the dock, with the view of the mountains, I just cannot explain in words how beautiful this place this.
