The Fairmont Orchid, Hawaii is a perfect setting for your Hawaiian wedding. The spectacular resort scenery provides an unforgettable backdrop to any special event or celebration. A sampling of our outdoor locations consist of Turtle Pointe Gazebo, situated along the peppered shoreline of black and white coral, and offers breathtaking views of the ocean, resort and summits of the Kohala Mountains, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa from an unspoiled broad lawn area. The Coconut Grove is a sandy coconut grove with towering palms overhead and offers a wedding on the beach with swaying palms and glowing tiki torches. Courtyard Lanai features sculpted tile and railings and overlooks an open lawn, the 10,000 square foot pool and the ocean beyond. Kilohana offers sunset views of the resort, and is the ideal location for your reception. Shuttered doors open to a private lanai and grassy area surrounded by tiki torches.

My husband and I are so glad we went with the Fairmont for our ceremony and reception venue. Ashley Kojima, our wedding coordinator was helpful and professional, working seamlessly with our wedding planner, Haunani of Weddings by Le'Amana. Additionally, the hotel staff were consistently pleasant and responsive. Our wedding ceremony and reception were beyond what we expected or hoped for.....thank you so much to the staff at the Fairmont for a magical wedding experience for ourselves and our wedding guests. We went to a 5 star hotel on another island for our honeymoon - and they did not hold a candle to our experience at the Fairmont.

Thanks so much!

We could not have been happier with how perfectly Katie and the rest of the amazing staff at The Fairmont Orchid, Hawaii, executed our wedding. The setting (Coconut Grove) was magical and the food was described by many of our guests as the best they had ever had at a wedding. Every aspect of our wedding -- from the flowers to the musicians, from the fruit tree to the photographer -- was perfect. Katie handled every request and every detail, including details we hadn't even thought of, efficiently, flawlessly and professionally, and the entire staff at the resort made us feel like the most important people in the world. Our wedding was absolutely amazing, and we couldn't have asked for anything better.

Reading all these fantastic reviews wasn't a surprise to me. The Fairmont Orchid did surpass all our expectations for our wedding and it helped greatly that the Orchid was not only our only choice, it was the choice from the very start.

However, I never realized out of 4 or 5 of the reviews here, all mentioned a special someone who also touched our lives in so many ways - Ashley Kojima. Ashley have been our very pillar of support and help throughout the planning and running of the wedding. She is easy to talk to, great to work with and during our special day, she even came in whilst suffering from a bad cold. She took all my random, incoherent and at times, massive dump of ideas and group them into a tangible delight. Ashley put such a smile on our faces, and such love towards her that it was really sad to even let her leave at the end of the night.

And don't forget the banquet staff. Your wedding will never be the same without the staff (and we do mean ALL the staff at the Fairmont Orchid). From the valet guys to the kitchen staff, you just want to embrace all of the at the end of your night and say a massive 'thank you' that can never quite be enough.

Our wedding coordinator Mew, was incredible. She responded back quickly and professionally answering any and all questions we had. We wouldn't of had the beautiful wedding we did if it wasn't for her. The day of our event was perfect. Everything rolled smoothly minus the usual small stuff. All in all our day was better than we could of ever imagined. The rest of the staff was great to work with as well. We did have a few hiccups with customer service upon check in for some guests and in the dining areas as well. Mew quickly sorted out the issues without hesitation. We're so thankful we had her to help us during the planning process!

I worked with Mewlan to organize my destination wedding at turtle point followed by reception at the knoll at browns beach house. There were many details to coordinate, from flowers, minister, location setup , browns food and much more and 99% of things were perfect. The day was lovely and the venue easy to work with remotely. They were expensive but the service impeccable. Food at browns was fantastic. Florist was easy by email and using their Facebook page. Only criticism I wold have is that the sound at the ceremony was poor due to the wind and ocean sounds the back row (only 3 rows!) couldn't hear and I wish they had warned me about it and arranged audio but otherwise the day was perfect and memorable! The cake was beautifully decorated with fresh flowers and a hand drawn monogram. Great flavor too in lilikoi poppyseed with calamansi curd. Florals were gorgeous, orchids, roses so both tropical and romantic. I especially loved the archway with the florals and gauze, the bouquets and centerpeices. The boutonneires could have been better , more different between groom and other men. Spa without walls did fantastic job on makeup.. normally I don't wear it and Margaret and Cherie made me look so natural but also very appropriate to the setting with orchids in my hair,
