Fairmont Orchid Big Island Wedding Venue Styled Shoot

June 22, 2023


Our new Big Island Wedding venue, the Fairmont Orchid Resort, is a true oceanfront oasis that will take your breath away! We’ve worked with a few of our talented partners to showcase its natural beauty and convenience for your special day. Toes in the sand, hair in the breeze, a sweeping ocean view – this venue has it all!

Located in the Waikoloa resort area, just north of Kona, it’s known for its world-class accommodations, excellent shopping, dining, and golf. The resort offers two beautiful locations for your ceremony: a gorgeous beach ceremony site and an oceanfront grassy lawn. While both options are stunning, we recommend the beach location for its toes-in-the-sand feel and unbeatable views. Plus, the oceanfront resort is the perfect spot for you and your guests to gather before and after the ceremony! Your guests can sit comfortably and take in the beauty of the scene…

Love By The Sea

Our incredible partner Grace Flowers Hawaii went above and beyond with the decor and florals for our styled shoot! The wispy greenery and white blooms circling the sandy altar create a fresh and beachy feel that was so unique! Whether you want a traditional or more contemporary look, our knowledge team will happily work with you both to bring your vision to life! We love to highlight seasonal and tropical blooms. But most of all, we’re always excited to try new ideas to make your wedding unforgettable…

It’s worth noting that the beach ceremony location is next to a public beach and walking path, so while it’s not a high-traffic area, there may be people nearby. Additionally, the beach can get a little windy, but we think it only adds to the romantic atmosphere! Our lovely couple, Shelly and Max, beautifully modeled some stunning floral creations by our creative floral partner, Grace Flowers Hawaii.

Ocean Views

The Fairmont Orchid also offers an oceanfront reception area right on the beach that is simply breathtaking! Imagine exchanging vows with your toes in the sand and celebrating with friends and family amidst stunning ocean views. The oceanfront reception area is located just steps away from the beach ceremony location, making it a seamless transition for you and your guests. Plus, you can dance the night away nearby under the swaying palm trees!

The reception area is spacious enough to accommodate small weddings, offering endless possibilities for decor and layout. Whether you want a beachy bohemian ambiance or more traditional, we can work with you to create the perfect setting. And the beauty of this location speaks for itself, so minimal decor can go a long way!

One of the most impressive features of this reception location is the breathtaking view of the ocean that guests can enjoy while seated at their tables. There’s nothing more romantic than a reception with an ocean view!

Our talented creative team took advantage of the tropical setting and incorporated vibrant, tropical colors into the decor, adding to the seaside marine feel of our styled shoot. The pink plumeria table runner was especially stunning against the natural blues and greens of the ocean view. As you can see, there are endless possibilities at this location, whatever your style and vision! One thing is for sure, it’s the perfect setting for a picture-perfect wedding reception that you and your guests will never forget…

Loving what you see? We currently offer package pricing for weddings from Monday to Thursday and within 90 days. However, we also accommodate bookings for further out dates and weekends with an additional site fee and a food and beverage minimum with the resort. This allows our clients to have more flexibility when planning their special day…after all, we’re all for stress-free planning!

In addition to the Hawaii wedding packages pricing, it’s important to note that a three-night stay is required for the wedding couple, but the price is not included in the package. This is an opportunity for the couple to enjoy the luxurious amenities and stunning views that the Fairmont Orchid has to offer and to fully immerse themselves in the Hawaiian experience!

After your ceremony, you can take advantage of all the natural splendor around the property! One of the most stunning features of this location is the waterfall. Set amidst lush greenery, the waterfall provides a natural and romantic backdrop for stunning photos. The soft, flowing water cascading down adds a serene and tranquil feeling to these portraits from our styled shoot!

Another highlight is the lava rock beach just below the reception area. The rough, jagged rocks create a striking contrast with the crystal clear waters, making it a unique and unforgettable setting for your newlywed portraits. And we can’t forget to mention that it’s the perfect spot for capturing some romantic sunset portraits too!
