This grass area is now covered with sand. It's still nice.


Waialae/Kahala Beach is just past Diamond Head a couple of miles east of Waikiki.

The beach area we use is up the beach, about a 200 yard walk from the parking, and fronting a luxury low-rise condo building
.

We perform ceremonies on one of the grass spots under the shade of the coconut trees or on the sand adjacent to the grass. There are about 4 spots we can use. We use which ever area is available.


Mornings have cooler temperatures and breezes. Afternoons are hotter as with all locations.

We recommend ceremony times between 9 am and 11 am as the best times for photos, privacy, and parking. We don't suggest it but, we can go later. The later it gets after 12 pm, the more challenging it becomes. At 2 pm to 4 pm. the sun can be directly in your face and cause squinting, shadows are deep and require heavy flash, it's hotter, parking can be non-existent, and it's much busier, and if that's not enough, we charge more.

The parking lot holds about 50 cars and parking can be difficult. It's usually best 10 am and earlier, alright at 11 am, and as the day progresses it gets worse. You might want to use our limousine or just get a taxi or Uber.

Note: For ceremonies at 11 am or later, we suggest adding 10 minutes per hour minimum to the travel time listed on our contract just in case you have to wait for a parking stall or leave and park up the street in the neighborhood.

FYI: There are websites who agree to do weddings in the afternoons (especially larger weddings for some reason) with nary a peep about parking, beach being busy, other weddings going on, people everywhere, hotness, simply all the bad stuff we're happy to have our clients avoid. Up to you
