We are a full service wedding destination just outside Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island of Hawaii. The wedding pavilion is set in the rain forest, and the honeymoon suite is a treehouse high in the rainforest canopy. Here, you are surrounded by giant tree ferns, under the canopy of an ancient forest, sacred to Pele the Volcano goddess. The space is private, and is a natural sanctuary. We are less than five minutes from the gates to the park.
Your wedding celebration is customized to suit your preferences. There is also a koi pond with waterfall. Available music choices include live ukulele, flamenco guitar, harp, in addition to DJ style playlists. The ceremony includes the sounding of the conch shell, and is written for you. The ceremony reflects upon your life together, the place you have chosen, what matters most deeply to you as a couple.
We specialize in elopement style weddings that give you a full romantic experience complete with honeymoon and photography. Our tiki wedding package is the most popular for get togethers. Food is island style and the tiki drinks are served in real collectible tiki mugs for guests to take home. The romantic pavilion path is lined with tiki torches and cafe lights. Flamenco music and tapas are another match, the music provided by musician in pavilion. We have recently added a Monet's Garden French countryside style celebration, with a harpist and French foods. A masquerade ball is also possible. We can bring in the masks and as with the tiki mugs, your guests can choose among get them and bring them home, with the beads and coins. Zydeco and New Orleans Jazz could be the music. Our pavilion space is versatile and lends itself well to transformations. We welcome your party fantasy. Or, just go with the wedding in paradise in the emerald forest.
Photography is included in the basic price, and additional excursions to various island locations are also available. Examples of our wedding photography may be viewed on Facebook at Rainforest Weddings & in our portfolio below. We also do beach weddings. Customization of any package is available. Although our space is adaptable, a party of 25 or fewer is ideal.

I cannot say enough kind words to express how phenomenal Gail & Robert were to us on our special day! We had to plan our wedding remotely (I reside in Florida, and the event was in Hawaii) which could have been tedious and disappointing. However, the time, thought and detail that Gail full-heartedly put into creating our ceremony and celebration, resulted in a harmonious day, in a magical place -- it felt like everything was designed especially for us! Everything -- from our "blessing circle" on the beach accompanied by handmade leis, to our beautiful and delicious wedding cake, to the collection of amazing photos they captured for us -- was perfect!!! My husband and I enjoyed every moment we shared with Gail & Robert -- they were our "family" for the day, as we had a destination wedding; they will always hold a special place in our hearts! We plan to return on our 1 year anniversary and will certainly be celebrating again with them!Sent on 07/08/2014
