The ladies at SOLE made my dream destination wedding in Oahu come true. I started working with Karine and her team a year in advance to locate a private estate since these book up fast. Since I live in Texas and there's a 5 hour time difference, they were flexible with online meetings via Skype and we also exchanged countless emails and phone calls. I liked how organized they were with providing a detailed budget breakdown, vendor recommendations, design sketches and photos, timelines, vendor payment checklist, and various other collaboration docs. Everything I've mentioned so far is pretty standard; the reason I would recommend SOLE hands down to anyone is due to how they handled the situation where my venue cancelled on me two months before the wedding. Karine and Vanessa made countless calls every single day to property managers, private estate owners, and hotels. They also called me daily with spreadsheets to give me updates on the progress. I would have totally lost it if I didn't have SOLE scouring the island trying to find me a substitute venue. About 3 weeks later we found a venue that was even more compatible and had everything that I wanted in the first place (by the ocean, getting ready rooms for wedding party, updated estate). When we flew into Honolulu, they met with us in person and volunteered for another meeting at the estate. On the day of the wedding, I did not have to remember the timeline or a single thing. Karine handled all design aspects, Vanessa and her assist. directed and cued our huge wedding party (19 of us) and no one had to worry about anything. I'll never forget one moment when I misplaced my bouquet before the bouquet toss and Vanessa runs into the house and literally flies out of it - leaping across the stairs to deliver the bouquet to me right as the emcee announces the start. These ladies are amazing. Worth every penny.

AMAZING!!

I cannot speak highly enough about SOLE! Melanie and Karine were so wonderful throughout the entire planning process!! After contacting other planners and reading other planner reviews, I was very nervous about hiring any wedding planner, but when I first met with Karine and Melanie, I knew that they were going to be great! Their communication was outstanding; they were very professional, and they always made me feel special even though I was only having a small ceremony. They never made me feel like I was just another bride.

One other thing I LOVE about them is that they will do intimate ceremonies, but still book GOOD vendors for you rather than some random guy with a video camera or some girl who has watched a few youtube videos on how to do hair and makeup. They do all of this for a small ceremony for an affordable price. I never thought that I would be able to afford people this wonderful and genuinely nice.

I cannot think of one bad thing to say about Melanie. She was absolutely wonderful throughout the entire thing and went way above and beyond my expectations!

I worked with SOLE for day-of coordination services, and what they provided was SO much more! Karine, Melanie and Desiree were super-responsive and always had answers to my questions. Plus, they're just plain nice people and were a joy to work with. They worked with me to bring a lifetime's worth of wedding dreams to fruition, including assembling a rather intricate registration table setup and placing 80+ votives throughout the venue. And most importantly, they kept everything running smoothly and on schedule, and helped keep me calm on the big day. Having Melanie and Desiree there to work with our vendors and supervise setup was such a relief and eliminated so many potential headaches (really, do you want to be worrying about your tablecloths on your big day?). Our wedding was absolutely beautiful and it couldn't have happened without all the legwork done by the SOLE team.

My husband Neil and I were married this past August 1st, 2012. We decided to have our wedding in Kapolei Oahu. We couldn't have chosen a better wedding planner than Karine and her staff of Seasons of Life Events for our destination wedding. I found them while searching for a wedding planner via TheKnot.com. We were engaged for 3 months and new we had to go to Hawaii to research a venue and wedding planner. We met with Karine and I instantly knew she and her staff would provide the best service for us. Karine's genuine, caring, orangized and effient peronality made us already feel so welcomed. Her and her staff are very professional, always available if you need her and just a sweetheart to work with. They made our wedding above and beyond what we had expected it to be! They all made sure our wedding was our "DREAM WEDDING" and took care of EVERYTHING. They were able to assist me with additional details, vendors, and so many different and new ideas that were beautiful! On the day of the wedding, I couldn't have been more relaxed and stress free either. They were so organized on the timeline and made sure everything was in order. Tears of joy and love was all around us on the wedding day. We couldn't have done it without Seasons of Life. They definitely made our wedding remarkable and memorable for the rest of our life. Karine, Faith, Desiree and Melanie are truly the best ever! A BIG Mahalo to Karine and the staff of Seasons of Life for all their hard work and dedication in making our wedding a dream come true!

I cannot say enough about Karine and her team at SOlE! They are amazing! I engaged SOlE a year before my destination wedding. From day one I was impressed by Karine and her operation. I made one trip to Honolulu and Karine and her team arranged so many meetings with wonderful vendors and they attended most. It was a fantastic start! The team is so good at communicating and is hyper-organized which I so appreciate! They had fantastic checklists to keep me in check and a timeline for the event that was amazing! Throughout the year they were wonderful about emails and skyping and they were always super responsive. They led us in the right direction for vendor selection and were just pros int he event planning. The wedding was absolutely the wedding of my dreams and I know it would not have happened with out SOLE. I had many people tell me that they were glad they had already had their wedding, because mine was so great. A HUGE THANK YOU to Karine, Desiree, Faith and her team. The day could not have gone more smoothly!!! I appreciated their attention to EVERY detail - it was just amazing. Picking SOLE as my wedding planning team was the best decision I made for my wedding (beside a destination to Hawaii!). They were just professional and GREAT!!!!!

Seasons of Life did a perfect job for us!!! Prior to our wedding, I was living in Portland, and my husband in San Diego, but we were planning a wedding in Hawaii because my husband is originally from there. We also only had 3 months to plan it for over 100 guests. What should have been a more difficult task for us, being that we were both out of state and our extremely tight timeline, was made stress-free and easy thanks to the work of Seasons of Life. We were the first in our families to get married, and we and our families didn't even know where to begin. Karine and Faith and the rest of the staff guided us the entire way. They had answers to all of our questions, and were very kind, caring, and understanding the entire way. Their experience helped us find the perfect venue and vendors for us that could provide us exactly what we wanted even under a very tight budget. Seasons of Life also made sure everything went smoothly the day of the wedding. They took care of literally EVERYTHING which allowed my husband and I to completely enjoy our wedding day and enjoy the time with our family and friends. All of the staff members at Seasons of Life were very knowledgeable and were always making sure that we were getting exactly what we wanted in our wedding. I would highly recommend Seasons of Life to anyone getting married in Hawaii. We couldn't have been in any more difficult of a situation with both my husband and I living out of state and on a 3 month timeline, yet they made our wedding stress-free, beautiful, and perfect. Thank you so-o-o much!

Karine and the team at Seasons of Life Events far exceeded every expectation and gave us a wedding we will remember forever. As a destination bride, I put my trust in Karine to help us select a location and vendors, as well as to execute all the details. She got to know us and considered our personality and style to help us develop our vision, which turned out to be better than we could have planned alone. Thanks to her organization, positive attitude, and fabulous team, everything went as planned and I spent my wedding day enjoying every minute instead of stressing about the details. In addition to having peace of mind, the creative and personalized touch they gave to the wedding was priceless and a truly unique quality of this wedding planning service. We couldn't be more pleased or appreciative. Thank you Karine, Faith, and the rest of the team at Seasons of Life!

We could not have had the wedding of our dreams without Seasons of Life Events. THANK YOU to Karine and her team for exceeding our expectations! It was magical.

Any destination wedding presents it's set of challenges--- from the time difference, second-guessing yourself with vendors and just simply not being to see things live. Karine and her team made me feel comfortable about our decisions. Seasons of Life Events works with a team of professional vendors and executes your vision just as you want it. On the day of my wedding, I did not worry about a single thing. They were organized, on time, professional, had great suggestions, and were just SO nice.
THANK YOU very much Seasons of Life Events for making our wedding a day to remember. It was the best day of our lives!
