What a wonderful find Diana was. She helped me to organise renewing our vows while we were in Australia and assisted me to keep this a surprise from my wife. The event ran so smoothly and we were really able to enjoy every single minute as everything was taken care of.

Diana did a great job setting everything up for us in a smooth and thoroughly stress free manner. Her photography during the ceremony was seamless and we didn't even know she was there. She did a great job setting up photos afterwards on the beach and worked with us to grab a few photos in the beautiful courtyard of our B'n B. She made our wedding day picture perfect and the memory of a life time in paradise.

I recently had a destination wedding in Kauai. I found Alohana Weddings on the web and was impressed by the website. Diana is very nice and, at the end of the day, everything was just about perfect. The decorations were fantastic- Diana did an incredible job with flowers, etc. The officiant, catering and entertainment were also excellent. She was able to get a cake that was apparently quite difficult to get made. Everyone had a great time, and it truly was the wedding of my dreams.

Having said that, the process was not always stress-free. Diana mentioned early on that she might not respond to emails right away, which I took to mean that it might take a day or so for her to get back to me. However, it often took several days or even weeks to hear back from her, even when I just asked simple questions. Perhaps she would have been more responsive had I been more pushy, and it might have been different if we had gone with one of her packages. But, as it was, we did not get an invoice, or know exactly what we were going to get (in terms of decorations, food, entertainment, etc), until a couple of days before the wedding. The lack of communication was stressful and frustrating at times.

I would recommend Alohana Weddings with reservations. As mentioned, everything turned out better than I could have hoped. However, the process was somewhat more stressful than I had anticipated.

We were coming from Florida to get married in Kauai, Hawaii and after speaking with two other wedding planners we decided on Diana Gardner with Alohana Weddings.
She was very professional (and ended up being a lot of fun) and she offered more in her wedding package for a fair and reasonable price.
Diana took care of everything for us and took away all the stress of planning our Destination Wedding.
She made sure all our needs were met from beginning to end and even made Great suggestions that we hadn't thought about.
Diana arranged appointments for picking up our marriage license, secured the beach permit and handled the arrangements at the Resort where our wedding took place and she also had a Plan B in case of rain.
She set up my hair and make-up appointments which took place in my room at the resort we were staying. She referred Christy and I could not have been happier with the results.
She sent us video clips of a few officiates to help us choose and she referred Kahu Chuck, who matched our personalities perfectly.
Diana also handled our photography and knew where to take us to get the photos we wanted.
I told her the colors I wanted in my bouquet and our leis and she had them made beautifully.
We met the day before our wedding and walked around the area where our ceremony would take place and where we wanted photos taken; by the beach and waterfall. She knew exactly where to go after we told her what we were looking for.
Diana met me in my room and took photos while Christy was doing my hair and makeup.
Diana was by my side before, during and after our ceremony helping me with whatever I needed.
We couldn't be happier with the overall outcome and we HIGHLY recommend Diana Gardner for your Wedding!!

Diana was wonderful. She listened and understood what I wanted. Mine was a low key wedding, however she helped making it beautiful and memorable. Also note that she was my photographer as well, the pictures turned out amazing!!

Diana took this wedding and planned it so flawlessly that everything fell into to place. We are from Ohio so the worry of the wedding was in her hands and she treated us like a brother and sister.

We are so glad we found Diana! Our July wedding in Kauai went smoothly and I had no worries on the big day....thanks to Diana. She assured me when I was a concerned bride, she provided all the info I needed, and took good care of us on the actual day. We were very happy with the vendors she provided and we would highly rec Alohana Weddings to other couples having their ceremony in Kauai. In fact, we already did! My Uncle is using her services for his wedding in August. :)

I have always dreamt of the day I would be married on a beautiful sandy beach in Hawaii and Diana made my dreams come true. I have always loved Hawaii and even called the Big Island home for a few years, making me positive it would be the perfect place to get married. We currently live on the East Coast and I was nervous to plan our wedding in Kauai from so far away especially with our four year old son. The moment I spoke to Diana on the phone, I knew that my dream was actually turning into reality. She was always available to chat and discuss even the simplest wedding questions. She made the process so easy by giving us a list of multiple vendors to choose from, unlike other coordinators that chose for you, Diana gives you enough options that you do not feel overwhelmed yet still allowing you to chose exactly what you envision. We met up with Diana a day before the wedding to look at beaches which we absolutely loved being able to actually see where our special day would take place. Diana was so pleasant to spend time with, giving us advice about local places to visit and activities that we may enjoy she really made us feel like her family. Not only did she hire all of our vendors she also made our reception/dinner reservations and brought us cupcakes that we wanted instead of a cake. I can’t say enough about how great Diana is, she is professional as well as a lot of fun. Our wedding was exactly what I have dreamt about my entire life. Everything went so smoothly and we never felt rushed allowing us to soak in every second. Keep in mind if you have an East Coast go go type of mind set you need to take a breath understand what Hawaii Time is. It's hard to do planning your big day but Hawaii is such a laid back place and your big day is supposed to be relaxing and enjoyable..so just enjoy..call Diana Gardner she will take care of everything. She is a beautiful amazing person and I recommend her 100% without any hesitations. Call her for your Happy Ever After
