About

On WeddingWire since 2008

Kualoa Ranch Private Nature Reserve is a 4,000 acre wedding venue location on Oahu, Hawaii, about 22 miles outside of Waikiki, on the eastern shores of the island. Managed and owned by eight generations of the Judd-Morgan family, who are committed to preserving the culture and natural beauty of the land, it is a beautiful and unique venue for weddings. If Kualoa looks familiar in pictures, it is probably because it has had over 170+ Hollywood Movies and TV shows filmed since Elvis came back in the 1950's! The ranch has also been featured in other blockbusters such as Jurassic Park, Jurassic World, LOST, Kong:Skull Island, 50 First Dates, Hawaii Five-0 and more.

Located at the base of the Kanehoalani Mountain peak, the amazing tropical Paliku Gardens can accommodate up to 100 guests in the open-aired pavilion and 250 guest on the lush lawn area. Paliku has been the site of a few celebrity events including Michelle Obama and the Dalai Lama.

Moli鈥檌 Gardens is a two-tiered garden venue right on the edge of the beautiful 800-year-old Hawaiian fishpond. It can fit up to 70 guests under the pavilion and 250 in the garden area. It has a spectacular staircase that descends down to a cottage (from the Hollywood movie You, Me and Dupree) for an extra special ceremony spot.
