YOU'VE DITCHED THE IDEA OF A LARGE WEDDING AND ARE DREAMING UP A MORE ADVENTUROUS WAY TO SAY, “I DO”.

You may have already gone down the route of planning a big wedding. However, at some point along the way, it started to feel like you were planning a wedding day for everyone else. You were stressing out about irrelevant details like place settings and floral arrangements. You were getting worked up every time you thought about people staring at you walking down the aisle. You were worrying about pleasing your family over the smallest decisions. You just couldn’t justify using your time, energy, and resources for one day that you would probably be too busy to enjoy.

Instead, you’re looking for a different way to experience your wedding day. You want to start off your marriage doing something you lovetraveling to Hawai’i, exploring different islands, and trying new experiences together like flying in a helicopter over 100-foot waterfalls or kayaking alongside humpback whales. When you think of eloping, you get excited at the thought of making new memories, having an intimate wedding day experience, and being completely yourselves without worrying about pleasing everyone else. Eloping can validate the truth you’ve always known — that you don’t need the approval of others to make you happy. You just need each other.

The first and most important part of this process is for us to get to know each other. This is why we feel it’s so important to hop on the phone right away to make sure we’re a perfect fit! After officially booking with us, we will immediately send over a detailed questionnaire to get to know you both and understand your overall vision for your elopement day. This questionnaire is just the beginning to get all of your ideas flowing! 

The more that we know about you two as a couple, the easier and more seamless the planning process will be. Our biggest goal is to gain a clear understanding of your overall vision and guide you in creating a customized day that is authentically YOU!

Here’s the fun part! Along with the initial questionnaire, we’ll also send you an in-depth island guide with all the important information that we’ve gathered from capturing so many elopements across each of the Hawaiian Islands.

It can sometimes feel overwhelming trying to plan your wedding day from across the ocean, but don’t worry, we’ll guide you throughout the entire process! We’ll also share our top recommended vendors on the island such as hair and makeup artists, officiants, florists, bakeries, private chefs, etc. so that you don’t have to spend hours of your own time researching those options!

We recommend planning a date night for you and your partner, pouring some wine, and sifting through this 100-page guide to help you dream up one of the best days of your lives!

After reading through your answers to the questionnaire, we will send you multiple location options to browse through. We’ve created over 80 PDFs describing all of the various locations that we’ve scouted throughout the islands.

Once you’ve confirmed with us all of the places and specific moments that you both are most excited about, we’ll then draft up a detailed timeline for your day.

We are here to guide you and recommend our suggestions, but at the end of the day, we want your experience to totally reflect what you both are envisioning. Ultimately, you will make the final decisions by confirming the final timeline, locations, and moments that you would like documented on your wedding day.

Adventure looks very different for each person. Some couples are stoked to hike for miles with headlamps to reach the top of a mountain for sunrise, while others would prefer to fly in a helicopter and land beside a waterfall in the middle of the valley.

At this point, you’ve chosen all of the activities you want included in your day, finalized the timeline, found the perfect wedding attire and have everything carefully thought out and prepared.

After months of dreaming and planning, your big day is finally here! Our goal is to make sure you have a freaking blast! And don’t worry, while you lose track of time, we’ll be photographing all the rad and intimate moments while guiding you throughout the entire day.

You freaking did it! You planned an entire elopement from afar and just had one of the best days of your life! Now, you get to show everyone back home exactly WHY you chose to get married in such a brave, special and intimate way!

We will send you sneak peeks to share with your loved ones within the week, and the full gallery within a month. We suggest picking up a special beverage, getting cozy, and reliving your epic day!

You will have many options to order prints, design a custom album or create announcement cards to send out to your family and friends. We are so stoked and feel absolutely honored to have the opportunity to join you during one of the most important days of your lives!

Hawaii Elopement Testimonials

The planning process is so easy with Corinne and Ryan. They were quick to respond to all our questions. The questionnaire they sent us ensured we would have the ceremony location of our dreams (even though we had never been to Hawaii beforehand). Ryan and Corinne made the planning process effortless. With how unbelievably beautiful our photos turned out, we would have easily paid double!

We were nervous about taking photos, but we honestly felt very comfortable with Ryan and Corinne right away. At times, we were so lost in the moment that we forgot they were taking photos. We got to explore beautiful parts of Maui and left with amazing captures and an unforgettable experience!

Kelly and Justin

They guided us to create organic moments rather than poses. They were receptive to our input if inspiration suddenly struck. They helped us relax into a safe and loving environment that allowed us to be who we are as a couple so they could capture those sentiments and expressions for us.

During the whole process, Ryan and Corinne's communication and organizational skills were a strength. For example, they replied promptly to our messages and gave clear options which made the process smooth and easy. Ryan and Corinne were flexible and even willing to adapt their plans to make our session work. On the day of the session, it was as though we finally got to meet long-lost friends. We had such a fun day of adventuring! Not only was the service superb, what I think was even more important to us was the relationship we got to build with such wonderful humans.

Leading up to our session with Corinne and Ryan, we were both a little nervous about completely being ourselves while getting our wedding photos taken. The thing about Ryan and Corrine is that they exude authenticity that rubs off on you right from the start. Once we arrived at our ceremony spot, my wife and I felt completely comfortable and totally present.

Most Frequently Asked Questions

1) Do we need to know the island we’re going to elope on before we book with you?

Nope! A majority of our couples book us before even arranging their flights or accommodation in Hawaii. Through our detailed planning process and questionnaires, we get an idea of the types of landscapes you’re excited about and send you numerous location options that match your preferences. Some islands have distinct features that are unique to that particular island. The more flexible you are with your travel plans, the more opportunity we have with creating one of the most epic days of your life!

2) Do your packages include other vendors?

While we do not directly book vendors for you, we do provide recommendations for suggested vendors in our detailed Island Guide that we send to you immediately after booking. This guide includes our highly recommended vendors such as officiants, hair and makeup artists, florals, bakeries, restaurants, etc. to help expedite the wedding planning process. We also give you recommendations on different regions to look for accommodation and places that we recommend visiting during your entire trip!

3) We love the idea of an elopement, but we’re not big hikers. Are there other options?

YES! After reading through your questionnaire, we recommend numerous options that we think would be the perfect locations to visit on your elopement day. There are so many epic locations around each island that require very minimal hiking with jaw-dropping views! This is what makes Hawaii such a unique place to get married and have your adventure elopement!

4) Is it complicated to get a marriage license in Hawaii?

Not at all! It’s actually a really quick process that we highlight on our blog post HERE. You can print out a temporary marriage license after the officiant inputs all of your information into the system. Around three weeks after your wedding date, the official marriage license will arrive in the mail!

5) Is it difficult to plan an elopement in Hawaii if we've never visited before?

We got you! Our elopement planning process is very stress-free and easy-to-follow. We’ll guide you in every step of the way for planning your elopement. We have lived on the island for over seven years and have spent the past few years gathering all the information possible pertaining to elopements in Hawaii. Think of us as your Hawaii wedding planner for all your questions, recommendations, or concerns!

6) I really want to elope, but my family just wouldn’t understand. What should I do?

It can be difficult to explain to your family that what you want for your wedding day may be different than their expectations. If you really can’t imagine your day without family, you can totally invite them to your elopement ceremony! Check out our blog post on 6 Ways to Include Family on Your Elopement Day. Many of our couples book our two day collection to spend quality time with their families on their wedding day, and then spend another full day adventuring and exploring the most epic locations in the region!

7) What happens if the weather is bad?

We love embracing the natural elements of Hawaii, including the weather! Even if it’s windy or rainy on your wedding day, we are going to make sure you feel super prepared and we are still going to have an absolute blast! If the weather makes it dangerous to get to a certain location, we always have back up locations around the island. Because each island has a predominantly sunny and rainy side, we can always make adjustments last minute to switch up a location to a safer destination with better weather. It’s all part of the adventure!
