I was so happy to have our wedding with them! A wedding planner/officiant, Kalona was just amazing! She accommodated all our demanding requests and did everything perfectly!!!
The price she charged us was very affordable with high quality services and it would've been more if we asked somewhere else. A venue she used was really nice and all decorations, flowers, cakes turned out great! photographers and her assistants were very professional and just amazing.
Highly recommend if you are dreaming about a beautiful Hawaiian wedding!

Our wedding day exceeded our expectations and many guests commented on how it was the best wedding they have ever been to.
From the moment we began communicating with Kalona we knew we had picked the right wedding planner. She was unbelievable to work with: emails were answered promptly and she really went above and beyond to answer questions and give suggestions. Kalona and her team do an excellent job. They know the vendors, the venue and the details that make a
Wedding and a Bride feel stress free, she took care of everything for us!

I highly recommend A RAINBOW IN PARADISE for any bride looking for a Wedding Coordinator on Oahu!

Thank you so much Kalona, we now have beautiful memories to last a lifetime, you helped make our day truly amazing!

Aloha Kalona,
We would like to thank you very much for helping us to organize our wedding of November 16th, 2013 at Waialae Beack Park. For Pierre and me, it was a dream came true. All was perfect, so we will never forget it. We don't have the email of Rosemay Cuccia, our officiant, but I would like that you thank her for us. She was so kind and all of these words fitted with us even if we never met her before.
We only get good comments about our photos. Please apoligize me for my poor English because I am a french-speaking person.
Happy New Year!

We recently got married at Paradise Cove in Oahu and our day was absolutely perfect thanks to Kalona. I live in Australia so I had no idea how to plan or who to contact in Hawaii to help me but someone recommended Kalona and she made everything so easy and stress free. I LOVED our ceremony by Ryan Kalama and Kalona - it was simple and traditional but they are both so passionate that we really did feel even more in love on our special day. Mahalo Kalona for everything!

When we initially began researching Hawaiian wedding planners on the internet, Kalona at Rainbow in Paradise was the only one who responded within 24 hours. As it turned out, every email and phone call had a prompt reply. We are very happy and pleased with all the professionals (hair and make up, photographer, florist, musician and pastor) she supplied. Kalona, you're a joy to work with! Thanks for all you did.

Kalona from A Rainbow in Paradise planned our wedding for us and it was amazing. She gave us a lot of options to choose from for the event and great advice on anything that we weren't sure about. She was very flexible with our timelines and requests and very responsive to fluctuations in the headcount of our guests. Everything was coordinated via email, which can be a little scary for such an important day, but everything on the actual day exceeded my expectations. It was absolutely beautiful and perfect for us!

Kalona and her staff were wonderful. After careful searching over the internet and reading reviews online, I chose to use A Rainbow in Paradise Weddings to plan my wedding (as I am from another state).

Kalona was always quick to respond and gave me exactly what I had requested. She drove us to different locations to pick the perfect spot to get married. She has been doing this for so long that she has lots of fabulous contacts and vendors that she works with. She also recommended to perfect place to have our reception and even had a "lighting guy" to put up colored Chinese lanterns from the ceiling.

Her company is fabulous in that it offers several a la carte options so you really can make your wedding as personalized as you want or as easy as you want.

The photographers that she works with are all fabulous. I ended up choosing JeanneMarie and the pictures were stunning. People still rave about them!

I would highly recommended this company for anyone looking to get married in Hawaii without the constraints of a hotel or venue. You can really customize your wedding into anything you want through her company and vendors. You will not be disappointed!

It was so nice to work with Kalona. Being from Ohio and trying to plan a wedding in Hawaii I thought would be hard, but I found this package and talked with Kalona and everything was already waiting for me when I got there. She answered all my questions promptly the whole time we were planning and even got in touch with us once we had reached the island. Everything went so smoothly and was exactly what I wanted. We both were very pleased with the way everything came out!

We used A Rainbow in Paradise to hire our officiant, and a firedancer for the reception. They were so perfect! The ceremony was short and sweet and Ryan Kalama had such a great energy and presence. He went with the flow, did an amazing job of feeling the energy of our guests and playing into that. It was the perfect Ceremony!!!
And the firedancer was SUPER AWESOME!!! He brought his whole family along with him, nd his kids got up and did a firedance, he taught us how to open a coconut, and the meaning of the coconut juices on our wedding, and he climbed a palm tree in 2 minutes!!! My friends are still posting on Facebook about it!!! LOL!!!
Mahalo to Kalona, Ryan, and the firedancing family for being a part of making my special day so perfectly magical!!!!

Sharon (Kalona) is an amazing wedding planner. She is very responsive, take every question very seriously and easy to work with. Throughout our experience we were really stressed out and every time we called her she put us at ease. We made lots of changes, adjustments and we added many things to our original package. I think other planners would not probably work with us with the amount of work we had! However, Kalona didn’t ever complain and made every effort to make us happy. She went beyond our expectation and everything went really smoothly. We were on time for everything. Our setup was perfect and as we expected! She made our wedding such a memorable day for us and our guests. Our guests were entertained by the music and Hula dancer. I strongly recommend her to anyone who is interested to have a very special Hawaiian wedding! Thank you Kalona for making my day very special.

Kalona was wonderful from start to finish. Our wedding was so perfect and we had the best day of our lives, all thanks to Kalona. We live in Aus so would not have had a chance of organizing such a wonderful day without the assistance of A Rainbow in Paradise.

We hired Kalona to help us plan our wedding on Kauai. She was with us from the very beginning and kept us on track with our budget and was great at letting us know what needed to be done and when. She did a lot of research to get us the best deals on everything from flowers, to entertainment, to photography. Her contacts on the island of Kauai were fantastic because she knew who to use and what the quality of work would be. She was very quick to respond to emails and called us regularly. Overall we were so happy to have her help with our big day and wouldn't have been able to do it without her. We highly recommend her to any couple who wants to get married on the beautiful island of Kauai.

Kalona planned an amazing ceremony for us from beginning to end, I left her in complete control and trusted her to make all of our dreams come true and she delivered 100 percent. Every wedding guest was blown away by all of the details and they all said it was the best wedding they had been to. I was 100 percent stress free from the moment I contacted Kalona to the actual day of the wedding. My husband and I both agree we would not have changed one thing about the day, if only it could have lasted a bit longer. I will always look back at my wedding day with the happiest memories because of Kalona and her attention to detail and hard work.
Thanks again!

I am located in Baltimore and was having a wedding in Kaua'i, an island I have never visited. Kalona planned it all for me from Oahu. Everyone she picked to be part of the wedding--musicians, officiant, photographers---were just wonderful. She was always available to answer any concern or question I had and was really responsive. This was the wedding of my dreams and she was a pleasure to work with!

I highly recommend Kalona for a wedding on Oahu. She was very flexible in working with us given our short timeframe for planning and uncertainty.

We had a beautiful small Hawaiian ceremony on Lanikai Beach.

Our dream wedding was possible because of all the help from Kalona!! From talking on the phone to replying to endless emails, Kalona always was friendly and showed us the true Aloha spirit. Our ceremony was everything we wanted it to be, she had everything covered and the day was stress free because we knew we were in such great hands.
She met with us the day before at the beach and we invited her to join us for dinner that evening so our family and friends could get to know her. Waimanalo Beach was even more beautiful in person. Do not hesitate to book with her! She was so easy to work with and so willing to help us in any way. We miss her kindness and look forward to returning and stopping by to say hello!

Kalona was kind, friendly, and read both of us very well. She was able to integrate sacred Hawaiian elements into our ceremony without going overboard. The only complaint I think we had was that she was not able to attend the rehearsal, so we had a couple of flubs during the service, but they weren't big mistakes and the ceremony was so beautiful thanks to her. She does charge extra to go to the North Shore, but if you are getting married in Honolulu or on the Windward side, she is definitely the right person to use.
