Ceremony Times


Morning to mid-day times at all of our daytime beach locations except, sunset locations are the best for photography, the best lighting, comfortable temperature (it's less hot), parking, and chance of privacy.

We recommend morning times from 9 am to 1 pm best and depending upon the location. Be aware that it does get hotter in the afternoon and parking can be a problem.

Afternoon times after 2 pm can work for Waialae/Kahala and Makapuu can be used as late as 4-5 pm and maybe later depending upon the season.

Late afternoon and sunset ceremony locations are Magic Island, Ft DeRussy, Duke Kahanomoku, and Portlock Beach. For sunset, we recommend ceremonies 45-60 minutes before the actual sunset but, up to you, we can start as late as 30 minutes before sunset. See about sunset below.

We don't suggest sunrise ceremonies or before 8 am but, up to you. See about sunset below.

You can choose any time you want. If you choose a time for a location which we know will not be good, we'll tell you and you decide. It's up to you.
