Getting the required permits for your wedding event can be a bit cumbersome. The State of Hawaii Department of Land & Resources require a special permit for beach weddings. The State of Hawaii, Hawaii Film Office also require a special permit for photography on State land. Prior to getting the permits, you must purchase liability insurance.
