Venues to Consider

Kualoa Ranch

Kualoa Ranch Private Nature Reserve is a 4,000 acre wedding venue location on Oahu, Hawaii, about 22 miles outside of Waikiki, on the eastern shores of the island. Kualoa Ranch offers several spectacular ceremony and reception locations within its property. Managed and owned by eight generations of the Judd-Morgan family, who are committed to preserving the culture and natural beauty of the land, it is a beautiful and unique venue for weddings. If Kualoa looks familiar in pictures, it is probably because it has had over 170+ Hollywood Movies and TV shows filmed since Elvis came back in the 1950’s! The ranch has also been featured in other blockbusters such as Jurassic Park, Jurassic World, LOST, Kong:Skull Island, 50 First Dates, Hawaii Five-0 and more.

Facilities and Capacity

With many indoor and outdoor options to choose from, Kualoa can fit a range of 2-250 guests. The Secret Island Beach is an intimate and secluded beachfront area, with amazing waterfront views of Mokoli‘i Island, the surrounding Ko’olau Mountain range and Kaneohe Bay.

The quaint, rustic Ranch House Terrace overlooks the ocean and can fit 250 guests under the enclosed pavilion and on the lawn space combined.

Located at the base of the Kanehoalani Mountain peak, the amazing tropical Paliku Gardens can accommodate up to 150 guests in the open-aired pavilion and 250 guest on the lush lawn area. Paliku has been the site of a few celebrity events including Michelle Obama and the Dalai Lama.

Lastly, the Moli’i Gardens is a two-tiered garden venue right on the edge of the beautiful 800-year-old Hawaiian fishpond. It can fit up to 100 guests under the pavilion and 250 in the garden area. It has a spectacular staircase that descends down to a cottage (from the Hollywood movie You, Me and Dupree) for an extra special ceremony spot.

There are also several more open air areas (Low Camp and Jumanji), that have served as secluded celebrity wedding venues, and even hosted Hawai’i’s Diner en Blanc event with 5000 people in 2017.

Services Offered

Kualoa Ranch & Private Nature Reserve allows you to design your own wedding celebration and use your own catering, bartenders, florists, etc. Kualoa is just being the amazing back drop for your special day. We do have a list of potential vendors that have worked with Kualoa over the years, and their information is available if you need their services. We do require a licensed wedding coordinator at each event, and we can send a full list of approved coordinators upon your request.
