IMPORTANT: Unless you're staying at one of the hotels at Ko Olina, we cannot go here nor would we suggest doing your ceremony there.

Ko Olina is about 30 miles from Honolulu/Waikiki and 45 minutes to 1.5 hours drive or longer, depending upon the time of day.

Weddings are not allowed on any of the lagoons fronting any of the hotels.

The beach we use is adjacent to the Four Seasons fronting Lanikohonua Estate called "Secret Beach Ko Olina". See here.

It's anything but, "secret" given that there are major hotels right there but, we've noticed that it has been less busy since the Four Seasons remodel has made access so difficult.

With that said, on any given day and especially at sunset, it can still be busy being that the cove is so small. It reminds us of the small beach coves on Maui where you may have more than a few ceremonies going on at the same time.

This was a wedding at 5 pm with an extended photo sessions. FYI: We allowed the couple to use their own pastor. Click on image to see a few photos.

We prefer and suggest the morning and before 1 pm afternoon for the best lighting for photos (see above). You get that nice blue water and sky.

FYI: During high tides or high surf, the water and waves can wash up the entire beach, making it unusable. We'll have to check the tides.

This was a wedding at about 3 pm.
