Getting married in Hawaii means amazing wedding photos. Although my parents met in L.A., their Hawaii wedding was held back on Oahu at Kawaihao Church, followed by a reception at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. With the beautiful Hawaiian scenery, local flowers and landmarks peeking through each photo, you could feel a sense of Hawaii in each shot that made their experience unique. Beautiful white sand beaches and native Hawaiian plants aren’t the only popular backgrounds used in wedding photos here. Many couples will head to famous Hawaiian landmarks to get that vintage Hawaii feel to their photos.

Local Tip: A Hawaii wedding also means to be married “Hawaiian style,” and no wedding in Hawaii is complete without a lei for the bride and groom (at the very least!). The most popular wedding lei for the bride is the wonderfully fragrant pikake lei. As for the groom, check out the various maile lei for an elegant and traditional Hawaiian look!

My Recommendations

Want a fresh lei delivered to your hotel (or anywhere nationwide)? Hawaii Flower Lei specialize in shipping fresh flower leis for any occasion, big or small. What’s really awesome is that they’ll ship in styrofoam with gel ice so your lei stays cool and fresh while it travels. You can even place your order months in advance and send in special requests.

You can also order a fresh flower lei greeting at the airport for most major island airports to commemorate your special trip or an event – the most popular being honeymooners or first-timers in Hawaii.
