Among domestic (sorta) wedding destinations, few places can rival Hawaii, where pristine sands, turquoise waters and fruity cocktails beckon the bride, the groom and all of their guests. Known as the Garden Island, Kauai is our pick for a nuptials celebration: smaller than its sister islands and populated by fewer people, Kauai boasts a more authentic “old Hawaii” feel. The local Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa on breathtaking Keoneloa Bay is the perfect spot for the ceremony and reception. Guests will also appreciate the island’s riches of nature, including the Na Pali Coast, gushing waterfalls and dramatic Waimea Canyon.
