While summer may be winding down, Ko Olina resort on Oahu is still offering destination wedding packages for Hawaii-bound clients this fall and winter.
From catamaran weddings to beachside vow renewals, guests can celebrate their special day with packages offering beachfront villas, classic car rentals, tandem massages, sunset dinner cruises, spa days, surf safaris, music and ceremony.
New this season is the Kapuahi, or Sacred Fire, package, which includes a tropical bamboo arch with florals for ceremonies.
Wedding chapel details:
Ko Olina Chapel Place of Joy
This lovely glassed in chapel has a breathtaking view as you walk down the white marble aisle of a white sand beach and the clear blue waters of one of the lagoons on the property and of course your husband to be. It is appropriate the chapel is called Place of Joy, as Ko Olina in English means just that - and if you get married here, it is sure to be joyful.
The chapel has a capacity of 50 guests, but of course, can be used even if the wedding party is much smaller. There is a beautiful garden (great for photos), an electronic organ providing the music and the opportunity to host a reception in the chapel area – once again with those unbelievable ocean views.
Aquaveil Frais Marina Ko Olina Le Plage
Adjacent to the Ko Olina Marina, the Aquaveil Frais Marina Ko Olina Le Plage is located near Lagoon 4, what many consider to be the most beautiful of all the lagoons. The chapel is an architectural gem with full glass walls that make it appear to be floating – a stunning effect for a stunning chapel.
The capacity is about 30 guests and the music is provided by an electronic piano. Although they do not have a reception area, one can be arranged at either of the two chapels on the property that do have those facilities. But, there is a wonderful garden as part of the chapel area, perfect for photos; and, as with all three chapels, the views are magnificent.
Honu Kai Lani Wedding Chapel
The newest of the chapels is Honu Kai Lani, located near the entrance to Ko Olina Resort and similar to the other two chapels, has a beautiful ocean view for all the guests and the bride as she walks down the aisle. The Hawaiian word Honu in English means Turtle and if you look at the building from the side, you can see the shape of a turtles head.
With water features on both sides of the chapel, it would truly be a memorable place for a dream wedding. The capacity is about 40 guests, the aisle is white glass and music is provided by a guitar ensemble with singers. There are three reception rooms, Tiare, Lokelani and Pikake to choose from for the most perfect reception possible.
