Four Seasons Resort Lanai Wedding

Four Seasons Resort Lanai Wedding Ceremony
One of Hawaii’s most luxurious hotels I’ve ever visited was on the Island of Lanai, called the Four Seasons Resort Lanai. Larry and Rebecca contacted me to plan their destination wedding as an adventure elopement. Their plan was first to have a four seasons resort lanai wedding ceremony. Then soon after, head off adventuring with me around the Island.
When I initially showed up to the Island with the Maui Ferry to Manele Bay, Four Seasons Resort staff was waiting to escort me in their Tesla. When I arrived to the hotel, they showed me the way to my room and took care of me. It’s probably the best customer service I’ve had by any hotel or resort. They went above and beyond. I now know why my couple chose the Four Seasons for their hawaiian elopement and honeymoon.
Led by a local Hawaiian officiant and Ukulele player, the ceremony was beautiful, emotional, and peaceful. The officiant was kind and during our conversation, showed us his iPhone image of Justin Bieber whom he recently ran into on the beach. (image below). Larry and Rebecca signed their marriage license and off we went to explore the Island.
Wedding Adventuring in a 4WD
In order to get around Lanai and drive to the wedding locations I had researched, we needed a 4wd. The couple reserved an off-road Jeep for our adventure. The road we traveled on was quite long and definitely off-road. I had to get out of the jeep a few times to guide the driver (the groom) over some crazy terrain. We were a little nervous and out in the middle of nowhere. It probably ate up more time than we wanted, but when we arrived, we were treated with epic views we wouldn’t take back. Our time was short at the first location, as we had planned sunset photos at another location.
After traveling back uphill in 4wd, we made it to the Lanai beach just in time for sunset photos and were rewarded with beautiful light. We ended the evening with a starry night image, which closed the perfect wedding day at the Lanai Four Seasons Resort.
Lanai Four Seasons Resort Review
I would say to anyone who’s considering a Hawaiian honeymoon or a Hawaii Destination Wedding to definitely consider the Four Seasons Lanai. The customer service and world-class amenities are the best. Additionally, the food, the rooms, the ocean views, and even the Tesla ride, were all beyond my expectations. Any hotel or business should consider how Four Seasons operates. They are a model for excellent service.
