Country Bouquets
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
The bouquets, boutonnieres and floral pathway all came from Country Bouquets. My coordinator took care of all the details and promised that the flowers would look exactly like the photos I provided. She was right! I don't think I will ever see such beautiful flowers again in my life. Amazing!

Seawatch Restaurant
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
We thought about having our rehearsal here, but when we did a site visit, I thought the food was pretty bland. Plus, the area is a little strange with the street so close to the restaurant. Okay, but there were better options.

( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Dellables did our arch, and it was *perfect!* Our coordinator (Jackie) set up all the details and it was even prettier than I had imaged from the photos we kept sending back and forth. I met Della after the ceremony and she was so warm and friendly. Both of our mothers loved her!

Na Hoku
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
For bridesmaid gifts, I decided to get each of the girls a Palm Tree necklace. Because we bought so many of them, the store gave us a discount. Each of the gifts were boxed, wrapped and put in cute little bags for me to present to the girls the morning of the wedding. Now every time we go out together we all wear our Hawaii mementos.

Hilo Hattie - Hawaiian department store
 
( 2.0 / 5.0 )
We went here first for the groomsmen shirts. The quality just wasn't there. The shirts left rough like they were made from cheap material, and the patterns were a little too much for our wedding photos. Maybe if you were going to a luau it would look okay, but it was just over the top touristy.

Island Rents
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We decided to get a tent for above the dinner area at our reception. It was clean, stable, and looked pretty with the lighting we chose. They also provided our dance floor, and it looked almost new, which was pretty cool.

Benedict Boutique
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Karli did my hair and makeup. She was amazing! My hair is very thick, so I was worried that it wouldn't stay in place all night, or that I would have helmet head. Nope! Great products, great personality, and a lot of fun. I highly recommend Karli! She's one of *the* best recommendations from my wedding coordinator!

Olowalu Plantation House
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
The first time we saw the Olowalu Plantation House, we fell in love with it. Our coordinator was brilliant for showing us this private estate! Event though it was pricey, it was so much more than we could have dreamed of and we think it was money well spent. Mom & Dad loved it, too, and insisted in paying for this. Thank you!

These were beautiful! We chose the crown flower lei and the maile lei with white orchids. They looked amazing and smelled even better. My coordinator took care of all the details for this.

I am so lucky to have Joanna as a part of our day! She was really affordable compared to the other photographers we talked to, and I think her work was better. The photos were beautiful and it was really a value for all the coverage we got (6 hours). I highly recommend her!

I don't even know where to begin! From the first phone call Jackie and I hit it off. I really felt like she wanted to help me, which was unique because I felt like some of the other coordinators were trying to "sell" me the entire time were talking. Jackie had great ideas through out the process, and always kept a close eye on the bottom line (my Dad loved that!). She introduced us to great contacts and vendors all over the island. It was clear she knew her stuff! Another thing that really made our day special was how Jackie made a point to make a fuss over my grandmother and grandfather (both have some trouble getting around) and treated them as total VIP's the entire day of the wedding: getting them drinks, driving them around on a "personal tour" on the golf cart (our plan so that they wouldn't have to walk too much), and bringing each key vendor over so they would be personally introduced and always had someone to talk with. They loved the special attention, and it wasn't over the top at all -- just perfect. Overall, anything that was special to us became a priority to her. Any time I had a question (the entire year of planning) she would drop everything and always put my mind at ease. If she didn't know the answer, she would call someone right away to get it and always got back to me fast - in writing - so I knew the answers before I could panic. She even managed to get upgrades for us AND both of our parents through her contacts at the hotel. They loved this surprise! By the end of the wedding, she was more than a wedding planner. She's an honorary member of both our families. Any bride would be lucky to work with her.

Grand Wailea
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
The Grand Wailea is a beautiful place to stay during your wedding. They made sure that everything went smoothly and it seemed like very employee knew we were getting married at the restaurants, the spa, the pool... everywhere we went! The cost was a little high for all of our guests, so only a few people stayed here with us. They also upgraded not only our room, but BOTH sets of parents! I know my coordinator called in a favor for that one, which was a great surprise for everyone.

Carey Hawaii Limousine
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Because we had some many people in our wedding party we decided to get two vehicles: a limo and a chauffered SUV. It worked out great and we all had fun going places and getting a lot of pictures before the ceremony. Then we took the limo for some photos away from the estate after the wedding. It was nice to get to spend a few moments alone together during such a busy day. Just getting to talk in the back of the limo was one of my favorite moments of our wedding day. So romantic!

KLJ Productions
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
DJ Kevin did the audio for our wedding ceremony and acted as our DJ and MC for the reception. He was very professional and played everything we asked for. He also made some suggestions based on our choices to ensure that the older family members would have a good time, too. Most of our guests were on the dance floor with us the entire night!
