Elope to Kauai

How to Elope to Kauai

Kauai also known as the garden island is how I imagine Paradise will be. One of the most beautiful places and happiest places in the world I’ve ever been. Kauai has it all, pristine air, endless white sandy beaches, canyons, waterfalls, majestic cliffs, swaying palm trees, bright colored tropical flora with idyllic small towns like Hanalei. The whole Hawaiian vibe is great. Everyone is laid back, happy and life is simple. Food is pure and delish. It is picture perfect place to have an elopement. The ideal months to elope…. year round! Thumbs up to Elope to Kauai!

In my book, “The Eopement Experience,” this magical Island is listed as one of my top 10 favorite places to elope.

Kauai is perfect for any type of a romantic journey, especially for an elopement. Time permitting, you should try to combine your elopement with your honeymoon. You can also go island hopping.

You have quite a few different options for your ceremony: sunset on a beach, a quaint Hawaiian temple, a botanical garden, tree forest, near a waterfall or at the canyons.

You can choose to rent a cottage on a beach (Airbnb?) or stay at one of the iconic resorts. The options are many.

To begin planning your Kauai elopement, I have listed some of my favorite places to stay and things to do while on the magical Island below.

If you want to elope to kauai I can definitely help you with that. I travel several times a year in Kauai as I have family there.

I’m based in So-Cal so getting there is fairly easy for me.

If you want me and my team to help you plan and photograph your Kauai elopement, just send me an email to get started.

Food in Kauai

Make sure you try the local Cuisine. It’s full of delishous fish and vegetables.

You’ll find great  food trucks throughout the Island which have some great food too.

Be sure to visit the Farmer’s Market – especially the one in Hanalei.

For a special lunch visit, go to Nourish Hanalei -which is a family-run farm.

They grow a variety of plants, specializing in bananas, guava, acai, and cacao (chocolate).
