China is wonderful! She met with me to go over all my wants and expectations for my reception and truly delivered. Her and her team took care of everything and transformed a ballroom into the elegant and fun space I had envisioned. The quality of her work and the linens and lighting she uses are superior to anything else I have seen. She exceeded my expectations and made the setting up and breaking down of my reception space a breeze! I cannot recommend her services enough.

We REALLY wanted to give REA a chance. We were looking for a specific lighting option for our reception and our venue coordinator suggested we reach out to REA, as they had done the kind of thing we were looking for before. We read reviews of the communication issues that the company has, but figured that we weren't asking for a lot of services, just lighting and linens, so it should be easy.
We are from out of town, so on a "vendor meeting" trip to Hawaii, we scheduled time with China through her assistant Tracy. A lack of communication had us meeting them in the wrong location, and after we repeat-dialed Tracy, we finally figured out where we were supposed to go. But even though we were already 30 minutes late after having to cross town, China was still 15 minutes later than we were. Okay. We'll just brush it off and keep moving.
During our meeting, China was kind and was able to talk about some of our options. However, her appearance was less than professional. It worried me that she looked more like she had just come home from a house party than ready to meet with potential clients. We won't judge based on appearances. As long as they can do the work...
China told us she could have our simple proposal to us by the next day. Although we doubted that quickness, we were disappointed that even 2, 3, 4 weeks after we had met with her, we hadn't heard anything. We followed up with calls, emails, even text messages just to get a simple quote. We were told a few times that we were "on the list for a written proposal"...
It is now almost 3 months after we met with them, and less than 2 months until our wedding and we STILL haven't gotten any word back from them. We've moved on and are now working with a different, AMAZING, communicative, professional event team.
Perhaps they are simply too busy... perhaps we didn't offer a large enough budget to make it worthwhile... They should at least hire someone to handle their correspondence...

Everyone at REA were extremely efficient and well trained no matter who you talk to. They offer excellent customer service. At the reception every product looked clean and brand new.
My phone calls, texts and emails responded to immediately. Working with REA made this a fun and amazing experience.
They offered a wide range of decorating ideas that created a Cinderella dream come true for the bride and groom.
The day of the wedding I didn't have to worry about a thing. REA took care of every decorating detail.
They gave me the time I needed to enjoy all the special moments of my daughter's special day.

We found REA Events and Designs through The Wedding Cafe. We have also seen China’s company at bridal expos. We really liked the wide variety of linens and designs that she and her company have to offer.

China is a bit hard to get ahold of, but when you do get ahold of her, she is very professional, helpful, and accommodating! Her assistant, Tracy, is also very nice and helpful too!

When we met with China for our consultation, she told us that she got started in this business because her dad used to work in theater design. We knew that she would be good once she told us that. She was so easy to talk to and also had great ideas for us. We really enjoyed meeting with her!

When we told her our wedding colors (which were sapphire blue, glittery gold, and red), she made several suggestions based on our color scheme. She showed us different linen options and pictures of work that she had done in the past. We ended up choosing gold lame’ chair covers with royal blue satin sashes for our guests. We also did a royal blue linen for the head table and a red rosette linen for our cake table. In addition to those, she did twinkle lights behind the head table and royal blue uplighting for the room. She told us that these colors would pop and would look nice together.

On our wedding day, our guests were shocked at how gorgeous our ballrooms came out. It was a total transformation. She created the ‘wow’ factor that we wanted our guests to have. I thought that everything looked SO good and that her opinion of how everything would look was right! She was spot on with her recommendations! China has a GREAT eye for design. She is VERY professional. I would definitely recommend her company to other people.

China was our event coordinator and designer. What this girl does is amazing... She made our dream wedding come true, the ballroom was so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes during our private reveal. I am SOO happy and fortunate to have China and her expertise cover our wedding.

From her extensive timeline, to her superior design skills, to making sure it was a stress free experience...She was wonderful and worth MUCH more than what she requests. She is truly an upscale design and wedding professional.

When visiting their showroom I was able to look at all sorts of wonderful options for linen, and set up. China helped us choose the right look for our theme. She also did a beautiful ceiling treatment with linen, pipe and drape for our ballroom, and other decor items like mirror palm trees, bling cake stand, bling card box, bling napkin holders, Silver plate chargers, and more. We were absolutely thrilled to see everything come together so beautifully.

We are so fortunate to have these wonderful memories to cherish forever. Thank you China, Justin, and the REA team for this unforgettable experience.

China & her team are by far the best on the island! We used REA for both my wedding and a wedding I planned for my cousin who had a destination wedding here on Oahu. For my wedding China & her team provided beautiful linen, a mirror runner, candles, and even florals! My venue was a little outdated but China made it look amazing!
For my cousins destination wedding China & her team provided linen and up lights, we booked a small room but it looked like a million dollar wedding reception! China and her team were outstanding, they truly go above and beyond to make your special day unforgettable.
