As we head into 2017, we decided to share a few of our favorite, ultra-exclusive Hawaii wedding venues. Each of these destination wedding venues offers a unique setting off the beaten path on the islands of Maui and Oahu. The Villa at Calasa Olive Farm, a 20-acre working farm, is an exceptional setting for an intimate wedding. Down a winding tree-lined road in Kula, Maui, the Tuscan-inspired bungalow offers the best of both worlds--European charm and Maui's incomparable beauty. At an elevation of 2200 feet, the expansive estate boasts incredible bi-coastal ocean views of Maui. Surrounded by olive trees and rustic vineyards, your guests will feel like they've been swept away to Tuscany. The Villa is truly one of Maui's best kept wedding secrets.
Perched at the ocean's edge, Terrace by the Sea (below) offers the most mesmerizing views from Waikiki to Diamond Head on the island of Oahu and is one of our top wedding venues in Hawaii. Inspired by architecture of Hawaii's Territorial period, the majestic cut and cast stone facade was literally created with weddings in mind. A grand marble staircase, crystal chandeliers and a posh dining room set the stage for both intimate and grand gatherings. At sunset the horizon turns into pink melon skies, and at night Honolulu's brilliant city lights come to life. Fine cuisine, glamorous ambiance and stunning floor-to-ceiling ocean views bring out the Scarlett O'Hara in every bride who visits here. One of Waikiki's best kept secrets among the wedding set, this site is represented exclusively by Summer House Couture Weddings & Events.

Chandeliers and French bistro chairs from the Signature wedding rentals collection pair seamlessly with elegant tableware by Set. The incomparable views and European flair of Terrace by the Sea make it one of Oahu's most alluring wedding venues.
Lanikuhonua, which in Hawaiian means, "Where the heavens meet the earth," is a private oceanfront estate tucked away on Oahu's southwest shore with spectacular views of the Pacific. Sheltered within Ko Olina Resort, the white sand cove offers the ultimate blend of privacy and scenery for a beach wedding celebration. To book Lanikuhonua, visit the Summer House website.
