Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Are all Wedding Planners and Vendors Welcome?
Yes, we do not have an approved list!
Do I need to hire a wedding planner?
It’s totally up to you. If you choose to bring your wedding planner along with your selected vendors and/or caterer, that’s great! We provide a wedding coordinator for the property, so all involved have a single contact point. For those not familiar with the area, we are happy to provide a list of local vendors. We can also provide you with a wedding planner, offering an array of options for your big day. Feel free to contact us for pricing.
What is your payment policy?
We will hold your date for up to five days after booking at no charge to you. After the five-day grace period, we require a $1,000 non-refundable deposit to secure your date. The final event payment and security deposit must be made at least 90 days prior to the date of your event, unless booking is within that time period. Payments can be made by check or cash.
What is your capacity?
The venue can accommodate 1000 guests, all under the same roof! The arena is the most spacious covered wedding venue in Hawaii, allowing guests to mingle, dance and enjoy the company of others. Other than the ceremony platform and enjoying the 360° views there is little reason to leave the facility. Entertainment, dining area, buffet area, food preparation and restrooms are all under one roof.
What time may we have access to the venue to get ready and set up?
Venue access begins at 10 am the day of your wedding. If available, we can accommodate up to three hours access the day prior for set-up, decorating, and/or rehearsal. Your complimentary time may be scheduled the day prior to your wedding if the venue is open. The day and time will be based upon the availability of Pohaku Nui Ranch and must be scheduled in advance.
What are the hours for my event?
Events that include a ceremony and reception will not exceed an event period of twelve (12) hours. Events are to end no later than 10 pm, to include clean-up. If you really want longer hours talk to us.
Are other events scheduled on the same day?
No, we only host one event per day. We want our attention to be focused entirely on your event.
Do you have an arbor for the wedding?
The ranch provides an outdoor arbor option included with your rental. Located on the most northern point of the property, the arbor sits on a wide wooden platform. The platform is built on the edge of a 50-foot cliff, allowing for dramatic and one of a kind wedding photos.
Are linens provided?
We will provide the tablecloths. You provide your own style of linens.
Are we allowed to decorate?
Absolutely! You may decorate and create whatever atmosphere you would like.
Do you allow live entertainment?
YES! Fire knife dancing amongst the tables is the norm.
Do you allow kids?
Absolutely! Because the arena is so large we suggest you provide them an area to draw or play games. Happy kids, relaxed parents.
Are candles allowed?
Candles may be used provided they are kept in enclosed glass containers (for safety and staying lit), such as votives, mason jars, or lanterns.
Can we have a sparkler or confetti send-off?
Yes, we allow confetti if it’s biodegradable and in a designated area. At Pohaku Nui Ranch, we do our best to accommodate, so please contact us to discuss sparklers or items of this nature before the event. We are a working horse and cattle ranch, for the safety of our livestock anything that goes on the ground must be cleaned up.
Are the indoor lights permanent?
We’ve got you covered! Pohaku Nui Ranch provides over 1200 feet of festive lights hanging high above!
Who is responsible for cleaning after our wedding?
You are required to clean up and collect your décor and personal items. You are also responsible for ensuring you have a caterer or assigned group of people to clear all dishes, food, and trash from your tables. Stacking the tables and chairs on their racks is also your responsibility. Any of these services can be provided.
Is parking available?
We have unlimited parking 100 feet from the venue. We also provide a roundabout drop-off for direct entrance as well as wheelchair access.
What hotels are near by?
Turtle Bay Resort and The Courtyard by Marriott are less than five miles from the ranch.
