Hawaii is an epic place to Elope!

Eloping in Hawaii has to be one of the most epic things you can do. Who wouldn’t want to start this new amazing chapter with an adventurous elopement? Leila and Mark certainly did with their intimate elopement at the sandbar just off the shore in Kaneohe.

The sandbar, which is only accessible by boat or kayak, allows you to guarantee privacy. The views of the Kualoa Mountain range are picturesque and provide an amazing backdrop for your Hawaii elopement.

Leila and Mark stayed true to themselves through their simple but timeless celebration. Leila looked like a plantation Hawaiian princess with her stunning flat-brimmed hat and the most stunning bright pink haku flower crown. Her bouquet was the best pop to color to compliment all of the natural beauty. The Happy Haku did all of the florals for Leila and Mark, and they are a personal favorite of mine on Oahu!

It wouldn’t have been a party without little Mark, Leila and Mark’s son! He was so cute hanging out on their fun floats, cheering Mom and Dad on. They are family goals!


Eloping in Hawaii can seem like a daunting task. With just a few simple steps you too can have the wedding from your dreams!!

  1. Apply for marriage license HERE
  2. Find an agent and schedule your appointment HERE
  3. Pick a date, and hire your photographer…aka me! You can inquire for an all-inclusive elopement with me HERE

With these three simple steps, you are well on your way to an amazing Hawaiian elopement! When you book your Hawaii Elopement with me I offer FULL-SERVICE planning, meaning you do the first three steps and I’ll take care of the rest. You will get stunning florals, hair and makeup, and even a cute cake! I’ll help you choose the perfect location, whether you want to hike for epic views, take a boat into the middle of the ocean as Leila and Mark did, or opt for something lowkey, like a beach at sunset. The choice is yours!

Let’s make your wedding day something uniquely you that you’ll never, ever forget!
