Kailana Chapel – Oceanview Wedding Venue

May 9, 2024


Are you looking to wow your guests for your Hawaii Destination Wedding? Look no further than our newest Oahu wedding venue, Kailana Chapel, nestled on the ocean side of Sea Life Park, just a scenic 30-minute drive from the heart of Waikiki.

This stunning venue offers couples two options for their ceremony location: the expansive deck with sweeping ocean views or the air-conditioned comfort of the chapel, both offering breathtaking vistas of the Pacific Ocean.

One reason why we love this venue is that it has the gorgeous Makapu’u beach just below with white sand and dramatic rocks to capture adventurous couples photos after your ceremony and group photos. It also offers a small bridal suite on-site, so couples can add those final touches to their attire before walking down the aisle.

There are so many ways to elevate this venue to truly make it as unique as your love story. We decided to show one option by arranging a styled photo shoot with Hawaii Arch Rentals to show off one of our favorite new options for ceremony florals with these silk eco-flower towers.

You can enhance the ambiance with optional add-ons like a white or brown round circle arche adorned with fresh floral arrangements. Or for a big WOW factor, add on silk floral towers and aisle decor as pictured from Hawaii Arch Rentals. These flower towers offer an eco-friendly and visually stunning alternative to traditional fresh flowers, ensuring a picture-perfect look without waste. Another bonus to using these silk flower towers, unlike fresh flowers which can vary in size, color and availability, what you see is EXACTLY what you get!

A Scenic Ceremony – Kailana Deck and Garden

If your dream is an outdoor wedding with ocean views, the deck overlooking the ocean provides a breathtaking view that will truly wow your guests! With seating for up to 30, this secluded oasis provides the perfect backdrop for couples to declare their love for one another in a setting that feels both tranquil and majestic. With nothing but the vast expanse of the sea stretching out before them, it’s easy to feel like the only two people in the world in this idyllic paradise!

Elevated & Sustainable Tropical Florals

Our floral partner, Hawaii Arch Rentals , went above and beyond bringing the aloha factor with these vibrant tropical arrangements and floral towers! Just imagine saying “I, do” in this colorful setting!

Believe it or not, these stunning floral towers and arrangements by Hawaii Arch Rentals are actually 100% silk! Not only are they eco-friendly, they are a breathtaking alternative to traditional fresh flowers which would cost more than triple the price! These floral towers are an add-on to our Kailana Chapel Venue package and begin at $1k and up (the floral towers pictured are $1,600) while a fresh flower alternative would be well over $5k! Your guests won’t even know the difference, they look so real! While most fresh flowers get shipped to the island and thrown away after your wedding day, these silk alternatives provide a sustainable option for your wedding in paradise!

The ocean view deck comes with white garden chairs and round circle arches in white or brown can be added on for $375. In addition, fresh floral decor can also be added to the arches, ranging from $800 and up.

The Flower towers can also be pushed together to form more of an arch. You can also add on matching aisle arrangements to complete the look!

Kailana Chapel – Oceanview, indoors, air-conditioned

The arch windows filled with views of the Pacific Ocean frame the stunning vista making it a breathtaking location to say “I, do”. As you can see, light floods the ceremony area for a bright and airy atmosphere. This is a wonderful option for Hawaii’s hot summer months as the chapel is air-conditioned and comfortable for up to 50 guests. Even though you are getting married in comfort with padded seating for your guests and cool air, you don’t lose out on the proximity to the ocean. You can also budget time into your couple’s photos to take photos around the property and on the beach directly below the venue to soak in the Hawaiian scenery.

If you like what you see in the photos of the chapel with the white silk flower arrangements and lanterns, you are in luck! These are included in the venue rental so you have instant ambiance. If you would prefer to customize the chapel or just simply remove these items, this can be done with a $100 removal fee.

The outside grounds of the chapel are as charming as the inside and are the perfect option for your group and family photos on the front steps.

Logistical Details to Consider

Parking for this venue is at Sea Life Park for larger groups, it is paid per car and at the current rate and discretion of Sea Life Park. There is limited free parking for smaller groups. We recommend hiring a shuttle or limo so everyone can relax and enjoy the breathtaking views along the way.

It’s important to note that ceremonies at Kailana Chapel must be between 9 AM and 2:30 PM, ensuring ample time for set up, ceremony, photos and breakdown before the property closes at 4 PM. This makes it convenient for couples who may want to opt for a Luau reception because they can return to Waikiki in time for their earlier start times. So,¬†whether you prefer to be indoors or outside in the sunshine, Kailana Chapel offers both options making it easy to switch indoors in the event of rain.

Our wedding coordinators are happy to answer any of your questions about our Kailana Chapel wedding package! Our dedicated coordinators will work with you to customize your perfect wedding day whether you choose to be indoors or outside on the scenic deck. This wedding package includes everything you need for a stress-free and unforgettable wedding experience in Oahu! Send us an email at info@simpleoahuwedding.com with any questions you may have.
