My FI and I have decided to elope to Oahu from Atlanta, GA. There is a small possibility 3-4 family members might attend, but for now we'll assume it's just us. If you could help me out with recommendations it would be greatly appreciated. I've done lots of googling but there's so much information out there it gets overwhelming. Mahalo!
Resort- we would like to stay at a really nice resort, with a spa, great pool, awesome views, fab dining, nice spacious rooms, and great onsite dining options. I also really want to attend a fabulous Luau. If we could have our wedding there for a reasonable price (a few hundred dollars) all the better.
Venue - while we would love to have our wedding at the resort, it seems that it's very expensive. So if you could recommend something with a stunning view, that is extremely private that would be great. I'd prefer not to have tons of people milling around.
Wedding planner/officiant - if it's not possible to have our wedding at the venue, if you could recommend a good wedding planning company that's relatively inexpensive with good service and good officiants. We want a Christian ceremony.
Photog - I want a great, photojournalistic photographer that does not take cheesy pics, that will allow us to have all the rights to our photos.
Video - I'd like a nice, quality, but relatively simple video.
Hair/makeup - Someone that would come to me would be great.
Music - I want to walk down the aisle to "somewhere over the rainbow", so I am not sure if this is best done with a dj or private musician.
Our budget for everything is about $6000. We would like to come in October, and to save money possibly have the wedding on a Wednesday.
Thanks so much!
