Description

For more than four decades, Mauna Kea Beach Hotel has had the pleasure of hosting romantic Big Island wedding ceremonies for generations of happy couples and their families. From intimate to extravagant, barefoot ceremonies on the beach to grand receptions with the ambience of Hawaiian royalty, Mauna Kea can help make your wedding day on the Big Island of Hawaii heavenly. With so many gorgeous, unique indoor and outdoor options, your ceremony and reception are set out to be stunning no matter which setting you choose! For one, hold an evening ceremony at the Third Tee at the Mauna Kea Golf Course, complete with the rolling blue surf of the Pacific Ocean and vibrant hues of the setting sun for added drama. Experience the serenity of the lushly landscaped paradise at the North Garden, where the ancient granite seated Buddha sustains a tranquil vigil atop the grand staircase. Symmetrically arranged lawn areas, lava rock paths and tropical foliage create a space reflective of Hawaii's rich multi-cultural heritage. For a bit of a show, hold your ceremony at the Manta Ray Lookout. As the name implies, this locale provides guests with the popular evening tradition of viewing manta rays in the sea below! For the reception, options range from lawns sheltered by tropical flowers, to a contemporary art gallery, to terraced dining levels that feature panoramic views of the Kohala Coast.
