The signature style of your wedding lies in the details – the décor, lighting, menu, photography and other elements. Whether you’re looking for a taste of traditional Hawaiian culture or contemporary sophistication, your Hualalai wedding manager will help you create a personalized, unique experience you and your guests will remember for a lifetime.
Working closely with you, your wedding manager will be your contact for the wedding ceremony, reception and activities. Together you will choose the flowers, music, photographer, videographer, cake flavours, vows and menus for your special day. Your manager will make your wedding licence appointment and hair and make-up appointments, arrange group tee times and spa appointments. You can relax while your Four Seasons Hualalai wedding manager orchestrates the wedding of your dreams.
Photography & Videography
The Resort offers a wealth of stunning locations to capture your wedding day. At the Wedding Tree, black lava bluffs overlook white-sand beaches and azure ocean waters, creating a dramatic contrast of colours – a stunning backdrop for your photos. Its west-facing location offers an even more spectacular effect at sunset, when the sun’s fleeting "green flash" can often be seen. Alternatively, the Resort’s sparkling beaches and lush tropical gardens set the scene for equally impressive shots.
Our photographers bring a knowledge of and familiarity with the property that allows them to use your time effectively to create professional, stunning mementos of your special day. Your wedding manager will discuss the different approaches of our photographers and present you with the choices that suite your personality and sense of style.
The Resort's in-house florist offers convenient, professional floral services and will consult with you directly to customize arrangements for your wedding. In addition to traditional floral wedding arrangements, our florist can provide creative and exotic floral details to add a touch of the islands in unique and memorable ways. Greet your guests in true Hawaiian style with colourful leis or dress up your cocktails with fragrant orchids. For a romantic surprise, we can draw a bath filled with delicate petals. A path of orchid petals brings a romantic touch to the ceremony.
Our florist specializes in blending tropical florals and motifs into traditional arrangements. Most pieces use flowers and plants grown locally in the islands, many by small farmers and local residents who don’t grow flowers commercially but open the bounty of their gardens to our clients. We benefit from a constant supply of tropical flowers, including exotic orchids, dramatic gingers, and gorgeous roses grown in Waimea, just up the mountain on the Kona coast.
Our unique outdoor spaces are surrounded by stunning natural beauty. Whatever your theme or style of wedding, we can offer additional decorative touches to enhance the atmosphere. Tiki torches lit throughout the Resort create an elegant atmosphere with an island twist. At the Garden Lawn or Hoku Theatre, white Chinese lanterns strung in trees create a false ceiling and add a warm glow, while twinkling lights wrapped around tree trunks add an air of whimsy and romance.
Four Seasons Resort Hualalai is committed to ecological responsibility. Our recycling and composting programmes are an integral part of our regular operations and help us reduce waste. We also use compact fluorescent light bulbs throughout the Resort.
