Beach ceremony and backyard reception in Kauai

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Wondering if anyone has any ideas about finding a good place to rent out that will allow a small casual backyard reception (approx. 20-30 people). Ideally we'd like to find a place that the wedding party will stay (6-8 people) and then host an intimate bbq or luau. It's been quite difficult finding a place that will allow such event even though it is small. Any recommendations would be much appreciated.

 

We're planning on getting married on a beach by the North Shore. Really like the views of the Napali Coast. Either than Tunnels or Ke'e, any other quiet beach you'd recommend too? 

 

Many thanks!

Hi! We're hoping to have a similar wedding. Have you had your wedding yet? Or any luck finding a rental that can accomodate?

 

We were thinking of renting a house by the beach for a week and hosting a casual BBQ. Date is still TBD so we still have time  ;)

I'm in the same boat. Any luck for you either of you guys?

 

 

I FOUND A PLACE AND HAVE IT BOOK! Its on the east coast, the Coconut coast, about 8miles north of Kapaa. Its a beautiful property!

I am renting the property out for a week in April of 2015, and having the ceremony on the beach infront of the home, and the reception in the back yard. I have rented a tent to accomodate 80 people that will be set up in the back yard, and have hired a caterer for the food and drinks.

 

I am planning from overseas (canada), which can be a little trying, but so far so good. For those planning after april 2015, I will have supplies...tableclothes, decorations including string lights, candles, ect that will be left on the island with a cousin and available for purchase at a reasonable price! 

If anyone has any questions, please ask away!

Hi there Tesa

 

Thank you for all that amazing information!!! That venue looks amazing :) I am very interested in buying some of your decor as my wedding is in May 2015. I was also wondering if you could let me know who is the caterer you went with.

 

Thanks again!

Tesa, I will be having my wedding in your same location in May 2015. Could we please connect via email? I'd love to buy some of your items and find out what vendors you're using.

Wow that looks perfect. 

 

I too am planing for April 2015 and from Canada.  It's not easy planing from so far away.  

About half the guests have already booked at Hanalei Bay and a house like that was our first choice but with everyone coming and going at different times a large house like that doesn't work.  If we could get it for just one night to host the wedding that would be perfect!  

Did you rent the tent and stuff from the caterer or from a separate company?  I wanted to do a luau but now need the venue. 

What sort of budget are you working with?

 

Thanks for your help in advance.
