For couples who prefer to have their Hawaii wedding or vow renewal off the beach without the expense of a private venue here are our favorite non beach wedding locations in Honolulu.
Foster Botanical Gardens in Honolulu
This is a hidden gem of a location for couples who want a beautiful Hawaii garden wedding or vow renewal experience. Conveniently located next to downtown Honolulu you would never know it once you enter these magical gardens. At just $5.00 admission per person this is truly an amazing value as couples can select from several different locations within the gardens. Although the gardens are public there are generally very little crowds there and the atmosphere is always calm and peaceful. Parking is also free and plentiful.
Ceremonies for up to 40 are allowed. Available Monday through Saturday between 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM. At least 30 days advance booking required. The admission fee, including the wedding party and all vendors, will be added to your contract with us along with the applicable permit fees.
Okay, so this is actually one of the most popular Hawaii beach wedding locations as well but because it is such a large park, moving into the interior areas provides couples with a great, off the beach setting with the ocean still visible in the distance. Lots of free public parking and located on the western edge of Waikiki, Magic Island at Ala Moana beach park has it all for convenience and beauty.
