What happens if it rains?

Ohhhhh this question!! We get asked about rain every single day, multiple times... Almost as much as it rains on Kauai. Lol. But on a serious note, it is something we work with every single day. We are experts in handling the weather here and knowing how to predict where the weather is going. We always have umbrellas on hand for your and your guests in case of a sprinkle. In the case of more extreme weather, we are able to move your ceremony time/ date to accommodate more favorable conditions.

What's your favorite time of year on Kauai?

“My favorite time of year is fall going into early winter, September through December. The temperatures are cooler, the summer crowds have dissipated, the cost of traveling to Kauai is less, and it's just over all more mellow on island”- Jess

What is the most popular time of day for a ceremony?

This would actually depend on the location you choose. For beach weddings we recommend either morning or sunset. For waterfall or garden locations, mid-morning to afternoon times are preferable.

Is there a place to get ready near the ceremony location?

Nope, couples normally get ready at their accommodations and arrive in their full wedding attire at the ceremony location.

Is the marriage license process difficult?

Nope! We will make your marriage license appointment 30 days prior to your wedding date and send you all the details you will need at that time. You will only need your driver's license or a passport for this appointment.

What is the best beach for Sunset?

This totally depends on the time of year you are going to be on the island and we can definitely point you in the right direction based on where you are staying and your ceremony date.
