Hawaii is like no other place on earth.
Hawaii is one of the youngest geological formations in the world and the youngest state of the union. But perhaps Hawaii's most unique feature is its aloha spirit: the warmth of Hawaii's people that wonderfully complements the Islands' perfect temperatures. Who wouldn't want to get married or honeymoon here?
