I am trying to narrow down a location to have a very small wedding on the Big Island. I think I have narrowed it down to the Mauna Lani and the Mauna Kea. We want to get married on the beach and are looking at the resort as a whole for taking pictures, beach locations, etc. I go to school full-time and work-full time so I will not have a chance to get over there and do some exploring myself. I taked to the photographer and others who have said that both hotels are good but don't really offer any more information than that. I am not sure if that is because they work together and they don't want to cause any waves with recommeding one over the other or what! If anybody can offer any information, I would REALY REALLY appreciate it!
