    Hello all!

    We are headed to Oahu at the end of February to say "I Do" then hop on the NCL cruise around the islands for the honeymoon. We have had the flight booked and the cruise booked for months, and now I feel the stress of actually deciding where to have the ceremony, where to stay and who we will get to marry us... so many wedding sites on the web...help!

    I have been reading the posts and getting some good info. But would love some suggestions. It is only the 2 of us, so no need for reception and lots of fan fare... but we do want nice photos on a beach with not a ton of people around. Has anyone worked with aloha forever weddings?

    I thought we might find a hotel that offered a simple wedding on the beach but it sounds like it may need to be done separately. I am open to anything, waikiki area, or north shore, just somewhere on oahu.

    I imagine a day where he can go play golf while i get my hair and make up done, then we can go to the beach and have the ceremony and photos.

    After reading the posts, I realize that some of the other "Hawaii brides" are way ahead of the planning with dates much later than mine.... I really need to hop to it and figure this out!

      Congrats and Welcome!! Happy Planning!!
      I've booked Heather Parker for my photographer for my April 2, 2011 wedding in Ochi Rios, Jamaica. If anyone is getting married in Jamaica days before or after me and is interested sharing her travel expenses to save few wedding budget bucks, let me know. Take a look at her work for Moon Dance...

          Congrats Dana!! Sounds amazing! I worked on cruise ships as a photographer for a few years and have always wanted to go to Hawaii! I'm recently engaged as well and one of the places we were thinking of was Hawaii! So exciting!

          All the best! :)

                      Hi Dana, best of luck with all of the planning! I'm sure that you'll find the perfect place for the two of you. And don't worry about where other people are at with their planning, it will all fall into place!
