jungle elopement in oahu

This jungle elopement in Oahu was stunning in every way. We had the beach and the forest all to ourselves. If you’re looking to have your own jungle elopement in Oahu Hawaii, here are some of the steps that I would recommend.

First things first, Hawaii is incredibly busy with tourists. I highly advise having your elopement in the winter, since winter’s in Hawaii are still warm with 80 degree days. Another recommendation would be to start at sunrise if you want to avoid crowds. Otherwise, you might run into people during your ceremony. Generally people stay out of the way and are kind and considerate. We started this jungle elopement in a Oahu at sunrise, which is a part of the reason we had the entire area to ourselves.

Getting permits for a Oahu jungle elopement can seem daunting, but really all you have to do is follow the steps for the local requirements. Once you find your location, you look up how to get permits for that area. Forest service websites are normally a little challenging to navigate, but you’re also always able to call an email to find the correct person to chat with. After that, you will fill out some forms to answer their questions and pay the permit fee.
