Frequently Asked Questions

We don’t follow any hard-and-fast rules. Whether you’re looking to book a week from now (really!) or a year from now, we have the resources to create the perfect day. We just have to confirm vendor availability.

Blue Planet has a maximum capacity of 6 people, making it an ideal choice for intimate elopements. However, if you have a larger guest count and still wish to utilize our planning and photography services, we can happily recommend larger boats for your celebration. Alternatively, we can explore the option of a land-based adventure or wedding for your guests, followed by a personal adventure for the couple aboard our enchanting boat, Blue Planet. Your celebration, your way – let’s tailor it to perfection!

We do offer vow renewals! All of our collections can be modified to accommodate vow renewals. All pricing and a la carte options apply to vow renewals as with our regular collections.

Yes! Our base fee, which includes an officiant, will still apply but you’re more than welcome to invite an outside officiant.

Yes! We’ll give you detailed instructions on the process. But please note that marriage licenses are legal documents–just like a passport or driver’s license–so you need to appear at your local government office and apply for a marriage license in person. You need to obtain the license before the ceremony, and offices are generally only open Monday through Friday during regular business hours. You’ll bring the license to your elopement, and we’ll then file with the State of Hawai’i on your behalf.

Please note that for international couples, an Apostille Certification is also needed for your country to legally recognize the marriage. Not to fret, we’ll walk you through the process!

Without a doubt—yes!

Absolutely! We’re thrilled to accommodate additional time for photography to ensure we capture every aspect of your love story. Whether you desire getting ready shots, a scenic helicopter ride, beach photos, or a visit to a local speakeasy, we’re here to document your journey comprehensively. If you’re interested in adding videography, film photography, or any other special requests, just give us a heads up! Your vision is our priority, so let us know how we can make your experience uniquely yours!

We have a menu of collection additions from our partners which include hair + makeup, videography, and catering. You’re also able to expand your collection offerings with added florals, rentals, photography coverage, albums, and printed stationery. We can also help with additions for things like music, live-streaming, transportation, wardrobe, etc. Let our team know which details you are interested in, and we’ll make it happen!

Regrettably, due to Hawai’i law, alcohol is not permitted onboard without a license, even for BYOB. However, fear not! We offer a delightful array of mocktails during your charter, and we’re more than happy to customize the offerings for your elopement. Our selection includes sparkling juices, waters, and zero-proof liquors. Should you wish to include alcohol in your celebration, there are excellent bars and restaurants nearby, perfect for a pre or post-boat charter toast.

As we require favorable weather for a safe water excursion, we’ve got you covered with a plan B. Upon booking, we’ll schedule a rain date within three days of the original date to preserve the quality of florals. In case of inclement weather—unless there’s heavy storming and lightning—we’ll patiently wait it out. Our contingency plan may include a pivot to another date, weather permitting, or a seamless transition to a beautiful beach ceremony instead. Your celebration is our priority, come rain or shine!

Let’s chat! We’d love to discuss which collection and additions you are interested in booking. Together we’ll discuss available dates and introduce you to your vendor team. From there, you’ll individually sign contracts and make payments.

Yes, we are available for larger weddings and would love to talk about being a part of your vision! Reach out for more details!
