Kukio Bay Elopement, Big Island of Hawaii, Keira & James

A mutual love of exploring the outdoors and having great adventures is what drew Keira & James to Hawaii in late 2012. They spent an incredible two weeks island-hopping from Hawai’i to Kauai, a trip that was capped off with a romantic sunset proposal amongst the tiki torches dotting the shores of Poipu Beach on Kauai. It only made sense to commit theri love to each other in the one place they fell in love with, so they returned to Kona to exchange theri vows, again, at sunset. What mattered most to them was not having a wedding but getting married. Theri ceremony for two, attended only by a few sun-basking honu, was the perfect way to start their marriage.

For those of you brides & grooms-to-be who are feeling the strain of planning a large wedding, the idea of eloping might be starting to look very attractive! There is something magical (and not to mention stress free!) about saying one’s wedding vows with the sound of the waves crashing in the background, the sunset ablaze on the horizon, and your toes in the sand. If you are looking for a romantic beach elopement setting on the Big Island of Hawaii, for just the two of you, then look no more! This is one of my faves, Keira & James were married in a intimate beach ceremony at pretty Kuki’o beach. Kuki’o is located north of the Kailua-Kona airport on the Big Island’s Kohala coast, accessed at the Hualalai Four Seasons Resort.
