Elope Away at Four Seasons Resort Lanai
From secret ceremonies to micro-weddings, Lanai is the perfect setting for romance
Sometimes a gorgeous celebration can happen with only a few cherished family and friends, especially when it’s a wedding on the dreamy island paradise of Lanai, a secluded oasis in Hawaii. From a super-intimate elopement for two to a small gathering with loved ones, Four Seasons Resort Lanai is an unspoiled backdrop to one of life’s most special moments.
Elopements can be designed to fit any couple’s style; smaller doesn’t always mean simple though as carefree newlyweds seeking a barefoot walk down the “aisle” can wed in a style all their own. Whether it’s about keeping plans a secret or a focus on just themselves, elopements can be the answer. For to-weds who desire a more lavish approach, the ohana at the Resort can make dreams come true.
Couples who want to commemorate their day in an intimate fashion can hold a quiet ceremony on the beach, on a terrace overlooking the Pacific Ocean or alongside lush tropical gardens. Maybe the sun is setting, giving the sky a rosy glow, or perhaps the resident spinner dolphins are frolicking in the Bay, as playful witnesses to a ceremony. Just the Two of Us provides all the elements: a non-denominational ceremony officiant, flowers and maile lei, mini wedding cake, photography services and music. Afterwards, Dine Under the Stars with a romantic dinner, completely customised following a consultation with the chef, then head off for sweet dreams with a special wedding night amenity.
Newlyweds who seek to combine their elopement with an only-dreamed about vacation will find everything in one location on Lanai, melding together ceremony and honeymoon with an itinerary of activities personalised for one special couple. As many of the activities on Lanai are managed by Four Seasons, couples can book a variety of private experiences from sunset horseback rides to adventures upon the sea for two.
To-weds who wish to share their memories in a more familiar experience are planning micro-weddings, which allow for many of the welcome elements of a wedding, just tailored to a smaller guest list. Creativity, flair and pampering are top of mind and planners can design events in unique, new ways for the moment. Personalisation throughout, from ceremony to dining events to activities, is a benefit with smaller groups and ensures a truly memorable celebration. The Resort offers a selection of experiences for intimate island weddings,
When it comes to dining, ideas of the moment include dessert parties, allowing guests to enjoy treats and libations across an entire event space, or having a Hawaiian Kau Kau Tin “food truck” serve as home base for poke, tacos, local beers and more, so guests gather and sit in small groups around the landscaped grounds. Mini experiences provide fun ways for a few friends and family members to gather together and explore a range of activities, from cross aisle golf or archery games where bride’s side vs groom’s side competes, complete with team outfits or a “Last Sail Before the Veil” ocean outing.
Let Four Seasons Resorts Lanai inspire romance and adventure for celebrations of any size.
