A Chapel Wedding by the Sea: A Comfortable Venue With an Outdoor Charm

A Chapel Wedding by the Sea: A Comfortable Venue With an Outdoor Charm

You’ve set your heart on having a breathtaking beach wedding. But you discover that having one can turn into a logistics nightmare. What if the weather doesn’t “cooperate” with your wedding date? 

There is a better option. Instead of holding an outdoor ceremony right on the beach, you could opt for a chapel with a picturesque view of the beach.

An indoor venue that lets the outdoors in

Chapels don’t have to feel restrictive or too formal. Imagine an intimate sanctuary with floor-to-ceiling windows and a panoramic view of Ko Olina Beach. You can hear the waves crashing against the rocks. The interior design is minimalist or you can enhance the modest space with your preferred flower arrangement— from Hawaiian-themed birds of paradise or classic-style roses. In a wedding chapel by the beach, exchanging your vows can be as stunning as saying “I do” under the sky.

Wedding chapels, which may vary in size—from 25 to 150 seats—help create an intimate wedding ceremony ambiance. Intimate weddings are trendy because they’re simpler to organize, easier on the budget, and they allow couples to spend a meaningful day with people who matter the most to them.

Chapel weddings also do not always have to be religious. Several beach resorts have beautiful ceremony sites that cater to couples of any religious affiliation. Although some wedding ceremony packages for chapels in Hawaii may include a kahu wedding officiant, it’s optional. You’re free to choose the kind of wedding ceremony you will have.

A venue that cares for your entourage and guests

With a wedding chapel for a venue, everyone—the couple, entourage, and guests—has less to worry about. There’s a roof in case it rains. The kids can’t easily run out into the sea. Outsiders can’t disrupt the solemn mood. And there are no risks of sea birds flocking in or of a sudden gust messing up the flowers and bridesmaids’ hairdos.

The acoustics are also better; your vows and the music will sound great during the ceremony as well as on your wedding video.

Moreover, it’s comfortable for everyone. The bathroom’s around the corner and no one needs to bear the grunt of outdoor weather in case it’s too hot or too cold. It’s also easier to walk on concrete or wood. And best of all, the bride has a room where she can savor every moment until it’s time to walk down the aisle.

A chapel wedding beside the sea would be a gorgeous alternative to your dream of a beach wedding. The view is just as breath-taking, and the convenience it offers makes everyone feel cared for on your big day.

But all weddings, big or small, can be challenging to organize without personalized guidance.
