The Aloha State is one of the most beautiful places in the country (and honestly, the world) to get married. From the ultra-popular islands like Oahu and Maui, to the more secluded locations on Kauai and the Big Island, these Hawaii wedding venues will have you dreaming of an escape to paradise. Ready to start planning your Hawaii wedding? We’ve found the best Hawaii wedding destinations for every type of couple, whether you’re envisioning an event that’s classic, romantic, rustic, or totally unforgettable.
Here are the top Hawaii wedding venues for every style.
Intimate: The Steeple House
Located in Lahaina on the island of Maui, The Steeple House is home to a historic chapel overlooking the beach and Pacific Ocean. A spacious one-acre lawn at this venue can fit up to 500 guests, but we think the The Steeple House truly shines when it comes to more intimate events with smaller guest lists. A terrace located just outside of the chapel is ideal for wedding with up to 100 people. The chapel itself also makes a charming setting for your ceremony or reception, thanks to the abundant natural light, wood floors, plantation-style ceiling fans, and bright white walls that give the space a modern farmhouse vibe
Rustic: Sunset Ranch Hawaii
Host the rustic Hawaii wedding of your dreams at this venue on the north shore of Oahu. Sunset Ranch has four event spaces you can choose from, including a spacious meadow overlooking Waimea Valley, a pond, botanical garden, and a rustic barn, pictured above.

Sunset Ranch provides in-house wedding planners and can host weddings for up to 150 people. The venue will connect you with exclusive vendors who can provide all the wedding services you need for your special day, including event rentals, photography, floral design, entertainment, and more.

Unique: Kualoa Ranch & Private Nature Reserve
For a truly unique experience, get married at one of the coolest and most scenic Hawaii wedding venues, Kualoa Ranch & Private Nature Reserve. If you think this Oahu wedding venue looks familiar, you’re not imagining it — the ranch is a popular filming location and has been featured in both big and small-screen productions, including Jurassic Park, Jumanji, and Lost. Naturally, it’s a great location if you and your S.O. are entertainment buffs. Not only is Kualoa Ranch known for its Hollywood ties, but it also offers a number of unique backdrops for your wedding day. One example? Secret Island, the venue’s secluded beach that can only be reached by catamaran. Talk about a one-of-a-kind experience! There’s also a pavilion overlooking an ancient fishpond, along with several gardens and horse pastures that make lovely backdrops.

This venue is located on Oahu, one of the most famous Hawaiian islands and a popular spot for vacationers from around the world. With plenty of restaurants, shopping, and entertainment nearby, the hotel is in a great location for anyone hosting a destination wedding. You won’t have to worry about planning your big day from a distance, since the Hilton Waikiki Beach offers customizable wedding packages to help you easily cross all of the essentials (and more) off your list.

No matter which island you choose, Hawaii is a gorgeous place to get married outside, but there are plenty of equally stunning indoor Hawaii venues, too. The Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa is an excellent example of an indoor wedding venue that captures the spirit of the islands. The resort’s Coral Reef room (pictured above) is surrounded by glass windows that create an indoor-outdoor atmosphere and fill the room with light. Another thing we love about this venue are the wedding packages, which will help you stay stress-free since your catering, cake, event rentals, and more are all provided in one place.
