Kauai Beach Elopement

Apr 1, 2020 | 9 comments

This beautiful Kauai beach elopement is infused with tropical vibes and mountain views that seriously took our breath away. This is one of the best beaches to get married on in Kauai, hands down. It has such a unique vantage point and since it’s a little remote, there are typically less crowds here as well. If you’re thinking about eloping in Kauai, keep this little slice of paradise in mind.

Ryan and Emily met at a friends wedding and at the time, they weren’t even living in the same country. A couple of years passed and the group of friends went on a ski trip where their paths crossed again, but this time both of them were in relationships. Fast forward a little bit, they both ended up single and Emily reached out. The rest is history! With all of their shared friends, it was important to them to include the group in their elopement so they opted for an intimate wedding ceremony on the beach in Kauai. It’s so fun when couples choose to include a small bunch of friends or family in their elopement days, they really get the best of both worlds!

Their sweet Kauai beach elopement ceremony was led by one of the best officiants on Kauai!  We were so lucky to have Freida along on this sunny afternoon, her words were beautiful as usual. Emily + Ryan also read personal vows to one another, which is another elopement idea that I really love. It adds such an intimate feel to the ceremony!

With things official and special photos of their friends in hand (or on my card haha), we headed down the beach for a little alone time. It was so special to see Emily + Ryan enjoy this beach, one of the ones I had immediately thought of when they told me about wanting to combine the beach and mountains for their elopement day.

Kauai is one of the most beautiful islands to elope on, no joke. If you’re looking for more Kauai elopement inspiration, check out some of my other blogs!
