If you're ready to say aloha to a romantic and private destination wedding in Hawaii, one of these 12 elopement packages in Hawaii may be just what you need to start your marriage off on the perfect note. Across the islands, that specific note may be of sweet and aromatic hibiscus, bird of paradise, orchid and plumeria flowers, especially if you book an elopement package in Hawaii that includes traditional floral leis for you and your partner.

In Hawaii, you can find elopement packages arranged by Hawaii elopement photographers who will take you to the island's most beautiful places, as well as packages from wedding planners and venues that include space for a handful of must-have guests. If you want to use any of Hawaii's public beaches, be sure you've really narrowed your guest list down: There's a limit of 30 people for beach wedding permits, including vendors. So getting married on Hawaii's sandy shores really is best for couples who want to keep things very small.

And in case you were wondering: yes, you can get legally married in Hawaii. Though it may feel as tropical and exotic as any far-flung South Pacific island country, it's part of the US, so you don't have to do any extra paperwork when you get home to prove you said "I do" in paradise. The best places to elope in Hawaii range from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island to tropical waterfalls in Maui. With so many stunning options, it can be hard to know where to start. We've narrowed down the best options to help you dive in.
