Paradise Cove has an amazing location right on the water with several options for your ceremony. We worked with Ashley during the planning process and she was great to work with being very responsive to our inquiries.

I think for what you get for the money you pay, it is on the pricey side. That said, with the costs, I expected more flexibility on the day of the event than what we were offered. We were quickly told that we are only able to take photos in the area that we reserved for our ceremony, which meant we had to go off-site for some of our photos. Our photographer was restricted with what and how she could shoot as well due to Paradise Cove's restrictions. We felt like we were being watched by the 2 on-site, day-of coordinators to make sure we didn't do anything wrong or against the contract.

Overall, it is a nice venue at a great location. I just wish they were a bit more flexible...it is someone's wedding day after all.

Paradise Cove is such a beautiful site for a wedding! I had a destination wedding and was hesitant because I was only judging by pictures...and there aren't too many pictures of this location on the internet. Most pictures you see are of its neighbor, Lanikuhonua. The pictures do not do this place justice. I had a private ceremony and reception in their Ocean Gardens area. It was a very intimate wedding with only about 35 people. There is a little garden area behind the mound that is secluded and the view is SPECTACULAR! My biggest skeptic (my mom who initially wanted me to have a church wedding at home) could not deny how beautiful this place was. She even said it was such a beautiful wedding and changed her mind about me having a destination wedding. The sunset is out of this world. I also couldn't believe the price I got it for. It is much more reasonable than Lanikuhonua and Loulu Palms, especially if you go through their preferred caterers. I picked Tanioka's and my guests could not stop talking about how delicious the food was. I had my dream wedding for a dream price. My guests are still talking about how beautiful my wedding was. Camille who is in charge of the Ocean Gardens area is very helpful and so nice! She is very busy as is everyone else in the wedding industry in Hawaii so it is understandable if they don't get back to you within a day. The only thing is you must start your ceremony right at 4:30pm because the Luau opens their doors I believe at 5:30pm but this wasn't a problem for me. Some people talk about strict time restrictions but that is only if you're only having the ceremony there. If you have the ceremony and reception there, you have the venue from 4:30pm to 10:30pm. Plenty of time!! We all went to the Luau the day after the wedding and that also was a lot of fun! We made leis and the luau was very entertaining. All in all, I don't regret one thing about this place. Pick Paradise Cove as your wedding location... you won't regret it!

It was a beautiful site for the wedding. The wedding reception was catered by Chef Chai and was totally awesome! Everyone attending the event raved about the food. The wait staff was excellent ! It was a warm muggy Hawaiian summer day under the outdoor tent, yet food presentation, taste, texture, temperature and freshness was nothing less than top rate !! Braised ribs and potatoes outrageous, fish w/lobster sauce fresh and rich, wonton and shrimp wrapped with crusted ribbons all warm, crisp tasty, and asperagus that was no less than the best I have ever tasted... Dinner was then topped off with an ice cold white chocolate-dipped, heart-shaped ice cream desert with a strawberry inside and raspberry topping that smothered the plate - to accompany the wedding cake. The ice cream amazingly remained cold even for those up dancing when it was served. We were amazed how chef chai did it all !! My sister, a world traveler, said she has eaten at some of the finest restaurants in the US and abroad and couldn't remember eating any meal better. What we thought was impossible to achieve outdoors was presented with elegance and style by Chef Chai. I commend Paradise Cove for using Chef Chair as a caterer for events at Paradise Cove. If you want the best, Chef Chai is the food genius who can make it happen !!

Paradise Cove is the most beautiful setting for a wedding. We visited the year before we planned our wedding and thought it was amazing. It's affordable for those on a budget, compared to it's neighbour Lanikuhonua.
They allow wedding planners to work with them and co-ordinate vendors on site, and they even let us use a private area to get some great photos, that they don't normally open.
Just check it out, it's beautiful

Paradise Cove provided a beautiful setting, and Auntie Pat was wonderful to work with. The one thing I did not like is how restrictive they were on the area that you book, and not being able to go to other areas for pictures. I can understand if there are other weddings going on, but if there is not like in our case it would have been nice to take pictures in differant areas. There is a beach there that you can take pictures on, however you have to exit the property and then walk down the public beach access to get to it. Not a huge deal, but since you only have the site for 2 hours, every second counts. I worked mainly with Auntie Pat who was an absolute sweetheart. In June I stopped by unannounced to see if they had any brochures or price lists. She offered to show me the site if I'd like. I fell in love with the beauty of it as well as the privacy. On the day of Auntie Pat was there to greet us with smiles and she had even placed a cooler of water out for our guests with cups. All in all even with the restrictivness of the area, I would recommend Paradise Cove to brides.

It was the perfect end to a perfect day! :) I had my reception at Paradise Cove, not my ceremony. Since no one in my wedding party, excluding myself, had never been to Hawaii, this was PERFECT! We got the Deluxe package and sat in the Royal Box. I reccomend this to anyone considering having an event at the luau. We were given excellent service the entire time. We definately given royal treatment :)

One thing to know though is that you probably will not be the only bride there. I believe there were four of us there total. However, the staff still made everything very special.

We had our ceremony on the beach part of Paradise Cove's property! The site was beautiful, everyone who worked there was so nice to us! They sneaked me to the bathroom so that my husband couldn't see me, they made sure all of our guest knew where they were going! We attended the luau directly afterwards and they lead us into the site where we received our Mai Tai's, pictures and everything else. We had great seats for the actual Luau. Paradise Cove is filled with amazing people who make you feel so special having your ceremony there, even at the luau, you feel like you are getting a lifetime unique experience! Can't wait to come back!

After my wedding at Ko Olina we went over to the paradise cove luau. It was a great experience for all of my guests. Its a great place to have your "reception" if you are having a small wedding like mine (only 13 guests). We paid for the bests seats and had our food delivered to us. It was a great ending to the perfect day.

Great location if you're looking for a beach wedding but lots of restrictions in terms of location, time, and what you can include in the ceremony. You must use their chairs on their property and not in the general public beach area. You also must use their wedding arch if you want to use one. They do not support any weddings on the public beach area, even if you have a permit. Other than that, it's a great venue b/c food and entertainment are already included.
