We literally fell in love with Elias. Our communication started almost a year ago and we kept postponing our wedding due to paperwork and formalities. But this professional wedding planner never let us down. He kept the estate for us and for the dates that were convenient for all our families. We cannot express all the gratitude for the marvelous wedding and beautiful memories that Elias prepared and implemented. His friendly and open personality, excellent organizational skills, extensive connections and CHARM captured our hearts forever!
Estate - huge, clean house; spacious bridal suite; bedrooms for guests and a separate cottage with bunkbeds perfect for kids (we had 13 kids and 11 adults); lovely backyard with a gorgeous mountain view; quiet location; 5 min walk to the beach, was always empty - so it's all yours!
Catering - AWESOME job with providing chefs who cooked dinners for us. Food was always fresh and mouthwatering! Elias even made sure that everything was gluten free as some of us are allergic.
Flowers and decor - We discussed it with Elias and he promised me I'll get what I want. He kept his promise – the arch was like a replica of my dream! The bouquets, leis, flower petals for the girls - all were gorgeous and classy.
Photography - Mark surprised us with the settings. We just told him that we want pix on the beach. And he took us to a couple breathtaking places. We are looking forward to seeing them soon!
Transportation - a white convertible with 'Just Married' sign on the back! We jumped with excitement when we saw it.
Elias, THANK YOU for the wedding of my life and for becoming our friend!
PS. Did you know that this incredible guy even provided the perfect weather?! It was raining nonstop when we came. It drizzled on the wedding day but when the ceremony began, the sky opened wide blue and the sun spilled all the goodness and love on us that moment! :)

Lorenzo Pitts was our photographer for my family style, Hawaiian wedding in late June of this year. He was referred to us by a cousin of my, in which, he did photography for a local tattoo shop in Haleiwa, Pa'u Tattoo. After seeing his work and hearing about his quality of service and smiling attitude, my, now lovely husband and I, had to have him photograph our wedding. Although it was a last minute addition to our wedding, Lorenzo was definitely ready and fully capable of providing such a great and memorable service to myself, my family and everyone that attend our wedding.

He was completely flexible with working over the allotted time to capture some beautiful sunset shots and get some great footage of the reception. He had another wedding that he had to attend, but he showed great interest and pleasure in taking the time to satisfy the needs of myself and providing great memories of the reception.

Lorenzo, you are truly a star and star like you shows that you are born with a heart of gold. We thank you for being such a great photographer, a great person and overall providing great memories for generations to come. All of my family here in Hawaii loves you and we really want to see more from you and continue to strive for excellence. Honey, you deserve it.

Planning a destination wedding from afar can be a very stressful process--you never know what you will get until you arrive! But Elias at Laakea Ocean Wedding was very responsive and reassuring from the moment I first contacted him almost a year prior to my wedding date to help plan my Hawaii wedding long distance. He made me feel confident that what I envisioned he would be able to accomplish within my scope and budget. He had a very can-do attitude and was very involved in the wedding event when I did finally arrive in Hawaii for the big day--directing the caterers, helping with set-up or stringing up lights--very hands on and attentive to help take care of everything so I wouldn't have to worry about a thing except to just enjoy the party! Thank you Elias and your team for all your help!

Elias at Laakea Ocean Wedding was simply AMAZING! My husband and I wanted a small beach house/ vacation rental to host our ceremony and reception as well as some of our mainland guests during their stay. We had searched many websites and took a few tours for potential venues but we hadn't found "the place". I contacted Elias and told him exactly what we were looking for. He gave us an address to meet him and as soon as we walked out through the yard to the beach, we knew it was the place! Once we had the venue, the rest was simple and Elias helped us out the rest of the way.

His easy going nature and can-do attitude made me feel confident that anything was possible! Elias has great connections with area vendors which provided us with flowers, tables, food, etc. and under our budget in most cases! And he has several items in his own inventory that allowed us to skip on expensive rentals. Elias was easily accessible and promptly answered my many emails and phone calls. He accompanied my husband and me on vendor appointments to help in facilitate the meetings and to make sure that we stayed away from the non-essential items that many brides can get talked into.

Elias was on-sight all day on the wedding day. He made sure that everything was set up properly. Many thanks to Elias and his business partner, Lorenzo, for a flawless execution of the wedding itself!!

Elias was a huge help for Bryce and Molly's wedding. He cared about the details of lighting, decorations, sound, food and more. He was always so friendly and kind to work with. The beach house was perfect for their ceremony! Many who attended commented that it was the most beautiful location and wedding they had ever been to!
Can't thank him enough for making this day so special and memorable!

Saying that Elias and the rest of the Laakea Ocean Wedding group were extremely helpful is an understatement!! They helped us coordinate wedding photography, catering, seating, and entertainment with the best in the biz. Elias has a very developed and refined contact list and was able to execute the best day of our life seamlessly! We recommend Elias to everyone for weddings, events, vacation, or whatever. Next time we do anything in Hawaii we will contact Elias and Laakea Ocean Wedding to help us reserve the vacation rental we will be relaxed to stay at.

My Wife and I learned the important lesson to focus on what you are good at, especially if it is a wedding; we are not good wedding planners. Laakea is. Elias' took the stress off and allowed us to focus on our wedding, not the ruthless coordination. Anyone who is looking to do a wedding in Hawaii should contact Elias and Laakea Ocean Weddings!!

Laakea Ocean Wedding is very reliable. The owner Elias is so friendly and warm hearted. As I am not living and have never been to Hawaii before my wedding, I was very worried and nervous about the whole thing and, the planner (sorry....), at the beginning. But Elias has proven his professional skills and knowledge of wedding throughout the preparation and onsite. He treated me with enormous patience, politeness, and enthusiasm. And he really made me feel that he had been as excited as me about this wedding from the first phone call we had. He didn't ignore my issues and concerns for my small wedding size and budget.
So ladies, if you are still looking for a planner at Oahu (esp North Shore), Elias and his team should be your best choice.
