About

On WeddingWire since 2013

Located in Hawi, Hawaii, the sprawling grounds of Puakea Ranch offer an idyllic Hawaiian backdrop for your wedding festivities. Exchange your vows under the canopy of our old-growth monkey pod tree, pose for pictures with our horses on the tree-lined drive, dine al fresco with sweeping ocean views and cotton candy sunsets, and end the evening under the stars of the Big Island night sky - world famous for astounding stargazing.

Puakea Ranch is an Estate Venue that has four cottages, two pools, fire pits, gardens, and more! Clients can book some or all of the cottages for an unparalleled Hawaii destination wedding experience!

We have found that most clients love to have all 4 cottages (which sleep 18 total guests) so that you have the entire estate to yourselves.

Feel free to message our Events Team with any questions!

And when you are ready to book, please fill out our short booking questionnaire, and we will send you a proposal and contract for your event, as well as put a soft hold on your cottages for you for 5 business days.

This place was incredible and I would recommend everyone to have their wedding here! We rented out four of the bungalows on the property. There was one that was not rented out but we pretty much had the whole property to ourselves. I was a bit sad because we stayed in the one bedroom one which was the one without a full kitchen...but I couldn't justify staying in the other ones as they had more than one bedroom.

They had an adorable farm stand where they would put some fresh veggies and the fresh eggs! That was the best...nothing beats a fresh egg. There is absolutely no phone service, but they do have wifi. The wifi doesn't blanket the whole property, but it works well in the bungalows.

My biggest concern was that I never visited the place prior to booking it....but it turned out it was unnecessary to be concerned because it was as beautiful if not more than the pictures on the website. All my pictures came out AMAZING and we even had a rainbow during the ceremony!!! I highly recommend having your wedding here. It's a bit expensive....but it's a once and a life time event.

Christie is a dream to work with. She provided lots of information on vendors, styles of weddings, weather issues for that time of year...with her input, we were able to plan the perfect event! The ranch is absolutely gorgeous! Josh helped us set up and take down everything. He checked on us several times to make sure we didn't need anything. Cannot wait to come back for vacation time!

Absolutely perfect venue. Christie, Josh and everyone at Puakea ranch was so helpful and flexible making our stay and wedding party extraordinary. We stayed on the ranch with both our immediate families for the week before the wedding, which was a perfect way to feel right at home by the time the wedding came around. The only problem was that we didn't want to leave! We'll surely be back to enjoy the ranch again.

Remember when summer was endless? when you would slow down, unplug from technology, feel the breeze in your hair, and get grass between your toes? Well, this is how I feel when I'm at Puakea Ranch, even when I'm photographing a wedding, I can't help but get this wonderful sense of inspiration from the unbelievable surroundings at the Ranch. It's truly a very special place. I have photographed beautiful elopements and small simple wedding ceremonies under the majestic "kissing" tree, as well as larger weddings where the entire Ranch was rented out. The pavilion at Yoshi's house is the perfect spot for hosting larger wedding receptions. If you are looking for a unique, private environment that feels like authentic, old Hawaii-living (with luxurious touches- of course), take a look at Puakea Ranch, you won't regret it!
