Ku O Lani Floral & Designs created magnificent pieces for my wedding. Darren was very kind and super easy to work with. By listening to my ideas of my favorite flowers & plants, Darren created stunning bouquets, and crafted one of a kind table & chandelier pieces. I was truly amazed. He had not only listened to me and delivered exactly what I wanted, but he went above & beyond. I felt that his creations were personal & a reflection of my personality. I had so many complements on all of the arrangements on my wedding day, and even now, in wedding photos, people are still commenting on how exquisite everything looked. I HIGHLY recommend using Ku O Lani Floral and the artistic mind of Darren for any event that you might have!

Darren did a fabulous job with our wedding! He was incredibly responsive over email (which is important because we live in MI) and helped me pick floral designs that were an amazing accent to our tropical wedding! On the day prior to our wedding, we realized we needed candle votifs for the reception. We called Darren and not only did he have them for a very reasonable price, but he personally brought the votifs to us. He also hand delivered all of the flowers. I would hire Darren again in a heart beat! He was absolutely fantastic to work with! Thanks, Darren!

Darren at Ku O Lani Floral & Designs was absolutely wonderful to work with. First of all I will say that the flowers turned out BEAUTIFULLY! It was exactly as I imagined and everything was so perfect. It looked like the wedding that I have always envisioned in my mind. Next, Darren was always in contact with me which made it so incredibly helpful! I talked to him on the phone and via email and he was just terrific. He sent pictures and asked questions and really got a feel for what I was wanting to create. He made it all happen! He was very flexible and informative! On top of having all of the arrangements made when he arrived, he put everything together from the table and place settings to the centerpieces and the linens and the flowers and décor on the chairs. Most touching was when he arrived to meet me at my room before the ceremony to give all of us our flowers. It was so wonderful to finally meet him and see for the first time his amazing creations. I was delighted to work with him throughout the entire process and would recommend Ku O Lani Floral & Design to anyone, anytime! BEAUTIFUL work and SUCH a nice person! What a pleasure!!

Ku O Lani Floral & Designs created beautiful and stunning floral arrangements, bouquets, boutonnieres, etc for my special Valentine’s Day wedding. My bridal bouquet was amazing and even more beautiful than I had imagined it would be. They were able to incorporate feathers to keep with the vintage team and also kept it modern by adding some sparkle to it. I highly recommend them if you want spectacular floral pieces for your special occasion.

I would highly recommend Darren of Ku O Lani Floral &b Designs. I live in Canada and dealt with him over email to order my bouquet for my wedding. He was such a pleasure to deal with. He was extremely prompt and helpful. He even went above and beyond and offered help with things to do and places to go in Maui. The day of the wedding the bouquet arrived and looked beautiful. I couldn't have been happier with the finished product. Do not hesitate to order through Darren. Trust me......you will be happy. Also, his pricing was way better than anywhere else I looked into. I went to Darren as I had read a previous review on him which raved about him. They were not wrong!

Our special day was so beautiful thanks to Darren's creative, amazing work! We think the world of Darren. He is the most professional, patient and kind vendor that we worked with during our entire wedding process. Darren worked with us every step of the way to discuss ideas, colors and he was sweet in encouraging us to take our time in making the final decisions. We were impressed by his broad range of prior wedding styles, knowledge and ideas. Being in CA, everything had to be done over email and phone. Darren was so prompt in his communication and made us feel that we were his #1 client. He also made us feel comfortable with our budget and provided several ideas within the range (rather than the opposite experience that we’ve had with all other florist). On our special day, Darren arrived with what was even more creative and beautiful then what we could have imagined. We are now several months after the wedding and one of our biggest memories is our wonderful experience with Darren. We will definitely refer Darren to anyone seeking a passionate, creative partner to add beauty to their special day.

Planning a long distance wedding can be very difficult. When we decided to move our daughter's wedding from Nashville to Maui, we only knew one person on Maui. The Pastor, Richard Murray, we had met four years earlier leading his Kaanapali Beach Ministry. We first located and contacted him. The first wedding planner I contacted was fixing to carry me to the cleaners. Be very careful with them. Our Pastor explained to us that the word "ordained" in Hawaii doesn't necessarily mean ordained by God, but can mean ordained by the city to perform weddings. This was very important to us for the wedding to not be thought of as just another wedding. We wanted God to be "glorified" in our daughter's wedding.
Then I found out about the Kaanapali Beach Hotel. This is the most authentic of the hotels with it's Hawaiian lawns and set up. Their wedding planner is Maddi Rabago. She was excellent to work with. She took all of the time with us we needed. She is such a lovely person to work with. We emailed each other a bunch and worked through the wedding site location and even menu choices for our wedding reception. She provided me vendors that we could work with for every aspect of the wedding planning. You could choose her vendors or choose your own.

This is how I came to contact Ku O Floral and Designs. After emailing Darren Keali'i Keala and talking with him, he seemed really professional on the phone. He shot me straight. He informed us really well. He emailed us designs and worked with us on our choices. He worked within our budget. Some flowers are custom to Hawaii and some are not. He informed us on that issue because that can effect your budget. He was great in emailing our daughter and us and sending us many examples of floral arrangements that could be used and the cost of each. He also worked with our daughter with the color arrangements.

After the wedding and looking back, we could not have chosen a better location, a better site, a better wedding planner, a better floral person, a better photographer, a better videographer, than we did. Our daughter's wedding was made "perfect" by all of these vendors.

I would not use the Salon there at the Kaanapali Beach Hotel though. Manicures and pedicures are ok, but the fixing of hair is way to expensive. This was my only complaint. The Salon is separately owned. They changed me over $700. Their price sheet says a certain price and "up". They utilized the "up" factor on my charges for real. I complained but it did no good.

Again, Darren was simply, "The Best!" First Class!

Charles Cherry

Our wedding videographer was Spinning Leaf Productions on Maui. The owner is Alex Ignath. Long distance wedding panning can be really difficult. I actually found Alex on the Internet. He was originally from the Czech Republic so I was Leary at first using him. Our photographer had not ever worked with him. His prices were very reasonable. We decided on a videographer really late in the wedding planning process. Looking back, we could have not found a better videographer. Alex was very easy to work with and very professional. We are so glad we found out about him. He incorporated my daughter's song choices into his video. It was excellent work that helped top off and excellent wedding. We are so glad we used him because his work was so professional.

Our daughter married at the Kaanapali Beach Hotel on Kaanapali Beach on Maui on 5-14-11. What a beautiful setting for a wedding. Simply beautiful!

Darren was so great to work with, I would highly recommend him! We were planning our wedding from Alaska and Darren was quick to respond to my initial emails with questions on pricing, availability, etc as well as any time I needed to make a change or ask a question during the planning process. He met with us once we arrived on the island and was very professional and reassured us that the flowers would be taken care of. On the day of the wedding, he went above and beyond, delivering the centerpieces to the reception site, bouquets to my hotel room where I was getting ready and corsages for guys to the church! The flowers were gorgeous and definitely at the best price. Professional service and quality product. :)
