Big Island Weddings?

Hey, I'm Big-Island born & raised, planning a wedding. Hawaii forums for the knot, well they are difficultly all destination advice, & I'm having a hard time finding good, affordable vendors. I only know 2 or 3 people who've gotten married, and let's just say I don't want to emulate their wedding styles...

 But I do want to find a nice venue, and good vendors. I've plenty of time, so I'm trying to find cheap (but not cheap seeming) venues. No beach weddings, I'm not your typical Island girl, but big lawns and open spaces are what I'm looking for, preferably outside! Any recommendations?

Re: Big Island Weddings?

  • DH and I got married at the Keauhou Beach resort on the Kuakini lawn which is oceanfront, but not on the beach.  Fantastic view, great prices and generally good service. We also had our reception there.  They did have a "coordinator" when we got married in 2004, but not sure what they have now.  All she really did was make sure we got the venue set up and walk through the rehearsal with us. 

    My pics were done by Charla Photography, very reasonable.  Bob Brown of Eye Expressions is also well known for being affordable. Flowers by Lisa @ Floral Expressions.  Hair/makeup by Ginny @ Innovations Salon.

    My two sisters also got married outside @ hotels (Sheraton Keauhou and Mauna Lani).   They both have great outside lawn areas.
