More than any other state in the U.S., Hawaii is the most popular location for dreamy destination weddings. With white, black, red, gold, brown and even green sand beaches, as well as dramatic landscapes of volcanoes, mountains, craters, valleys, waterfalls, forests, cliffs and rivers, it’s no wonder so many couples go to extraordinary lengths to ensure their big day is as spectacular as the scenery.
But if you’re already flying to the most isolated population center on Earth, why not go a step further and arrive at your wedding ceremony in style, by way of private helicopter transportation!
The Wild Side of Maui Wedding Destinations
Blue Hawaiian Helicopters has decades of flying experience around the Hawaiian Islands, and offer private transportation to remote wedding sites on each island.
The officiant, photographer and planner, alongside the bride and groom, are typically transported to the ceremony location, where all but the couple are dropped off to sort out the final details while the bride and groom enjoy a scenic ride around the area. For an even more memorable arrival, rose petals or champagne toasts can be arranged! Contact Blue Hawaiian directly for custom options, and they’ll be happy to work with your requests.
Alright, so you may not be able to get married by a waterfall on Maui (as none are accessible by helicopter), but you do have the option of hopping on a quick helicopter ride to the Big Island for a gorgeous ceremony by a secluded waterfall, the perfect excuse to do a little island hopping on your wedding day! Enjoy spectacular views, and plenty of peace and quiet at this wild wedding destination.
Located on Wailea Golf Course, Molokini Lookout offers exquisite views of Molokini Crater, the famed volcanic atoll known for its clear waters and vast marine life, located only 2.5 miles offshore. Take a short but mesmerizing ride over the south shores of Maui and land conveniently at the lookout, ready for the wedding of your dreams! While this area isn’t as remote as the Big Island’s waterfall location, the view is just as spectacular.
When in Hawaii, what could be more unique than getting married on the slopes of a volcano?! Ulupalakua Ranch, located on gorgeous and peaceful ranch land on the slopes of Maui’s Haleakala Volcano, is the perfect site for couples who want to get married in paradise without having to worry about excessive sand or heat. Not only will you enjoy magical panoramic views of Maui’s neighbor islands of Kaho’olawe, Lana’i and Molokai, but your guests will be thankful to avoid the heat that accompanies the most popular lower elevation areas.
