I cannot say enough good things about Kandi and Dean as wedding planners. They spent so much time planning, consulting via e-mail, and being on site with us at the actual ceremony. Coordinating every little detail for the ceremony and site, it was absolutely beautiful! They made our day SO much more special, and everything turned out way better than I could ever have imagined. By the time we left the islands, we had felt (and still do) like they are a part of our family now.

We had over budgeted and added a few more things than we had planned for, and they ended up covering the cost for us, which we are SO grateful for! Beautiful wedding, beautiful family, and both of our families are still talking about how special our day was, and our wedding was 2 months ago.

Love them!

My husband and i live in London and have never been in Hawaii before. So at the beginning arranging wedding there seemed like and impossible task. We wanted simple but elegant celebration for two of us and we wanted it on the beach. Planning your wedding from more than 10,000 miles away is not the easiest thing. However, thanks to Kandi, it was quite easy, straight forward and hustle free. Being a local girl Kandi advised on perfect location. Photographer we had, Josh, was amazing, hair and make up stylist - brilliant! Kandi arranged everything and made everything just as we wanted.
With special attention and care, both, Kandi and Dean, made our day very special. They do it from their hearts and that makes it so brilliant!

Thank you both for making our day so memorable for us and being a part of it.

I worked with Kandi to plan a beach wedding on the big island of Hawaii for my son and daughter-in-law, whose very busy work and medical school schedules did not allow them much time to focus on wedding details. As the mother of the groom, I was in an unusual position, making some of the wedding decisions myself, but needing time to run others by the bride and groom before giving Kandi the information she needed. She was always incredibly patient and helpful, explaining all our options and helping us choose the perfect wedding site, photographer, flowers, etc. to match our wedding vision as well as our budget. She was very knowledgeable and experienced, and made me feel confident that everything would go smoothly, even though we were thousands of miles apart!

The wedding itself was absolutely beautiful! The beach site that Kandi suggested was gorgeous and was perfectly suited to the needs of our group. And the ceremony that Dean performed was truly wonderful. He managed to incorporate all the Hawaiian elements that the bride and groom wanted as well as a personalized message tailored just for them. In addition, Kandi organized a beautiful wedding dinner for all of us following the ceremony at a restaurant overlooking the water. Watching the Hawaiian sunset while celebrating my son's wedding was the perfect ending to a magical day!

But Kandi and Dean's help and support did not end there. A few days after the wedding while still on the island, we experienced a family tragedy that left all of us in shock. Both Kandi and Dean came to the hospital to provide comfort and support to all of us. They gave us advice and helped us deal with a situation that was very difficult to handle in an unfamiliar place.

Kandi and Dean are truly wonderful people as well as skilled professionals. I would highly recommend Hawaii Island Weddings by Kauka to anyone planning a wedding in Hawaii.

We were married by Dean with the coordination services from Kandi in October of 2013. Our wedding was everything we could have ever wanted. Kandi's ability to coordinate services for us was invaluable as it is a challenge to know what you are getting when planning a destination wedding. Dean's ceremony was beautiful, heartfelt, and sincere.

They are an amazing duo who helped us turn our vision of our special day into something more beautiful and memorable than we could have hoped for! Love them!!!

Planning a wedding on the Big Island all the way from Australia seemed like an impossible task until I came in contact with Kauka Weddings. I feel so blessed that I did! Kandi and Dean are a fantastic team and made our wedding such a special day. They are also two of the nicest people you will ever meet in your lifetime.

Kandi went above and beyond to make sure all of the wedding plans were executed perfectly and kept me updated along the way. She is very creative and experienced.

The ceremony Dean performed was absolutely beautiful and could not have been more perfect for my husband and I.

I can't recommend Kauka Weddings enough for your special day!

Rev Dean presented an authentic Hawaiian/English ceremony for my event, complete with traditional drawn heart in the sand, shell blowing, lei giving and blessings. His ceremony was spiritual and meaningful on the most elemental of human conditions. I wholeheartedly recommend him for everyone's ceremony.

Having a wedding is stressful enough but to arrange a wedding far away with someone you have never met may seem impossible. Kandi and Dean from Hawaiian Island Weddings by Kauka made our wedding a dream come true. Kandi was easily accessible by email and phone. She thoughtfully put together a plan for us, from private beach ceremony at sunset, to wedding cake, limousine, flowers, leis, and an outstanding dinner venue. She is someone you can trust to create an unparalleled experience. She has access to the best inside sources from photographer to musicians to make an authentic Hawaiian wedding. It was a joy to be treated like family and to have our needs cared for so that we did not have to worry about ceremony and celebration arrangements. Their fees are extremely fair. They are honest and professional. I would highly recommend Hawaiian Island Weddings by Kauka to plan a wedding on the Big Island of Hawaii.
