Most of our couples who are interested in having Hawaii beach weddings know what kind of Hawaii wedding packages they want. It creates a easier planning field for any Hawaii wedding planner. For most couples a trip to Hawaii and having their dream Hawaiian wedding ceremony is a once in a lifetime dream come true. Helping couples choose the best Hawaii wedding locations and time of day to suit them can be challenging. Photographically we recommend certain times of the day for each location we provide.

Our couple today chose Magic Island at Ala Moana Beach Park with historic Diamond Head as the background. They decided on 5:00 in the afternoon which provided enough lighting for good images. Some couples request sunset, but we do not recommend sunset weddings for good photographic coverage. For that one shot of a sunset? Diana and Bob was so happy with their late afternoon wedding without the sunset. There is this feeling of happiness, with warm smiles and laughter from our couple as they became husband and wife. This is our reward of Aloha for our Hawaii weddings.
