Our wedding day was everything we ever wanted thanks to Diana and her team. It couldn't have been more perfect. I am so grateful to have found someone that I can truly trust help me plan our destination wedding all the way from New York. We did most of our planning via email and the telephone, but I was also lucky enough to have met Diana during her trip to New York : )
I wasn't sure at first what my vision was for our wedding. I just knew I wanted it to be tropical and bright (orange and fuschia)! I wanted our guests to fall in love with Hawaii the way we had. So not only visually did we want our guests to fall in love, but we wanted to incorporate some hawaiian food, island music and tropical cocktails to set the island mood. With Diana's guidance and extraordinary vendor recommendations, we couldn't have been more happier. My parents and guests were very impressed with all the details, attention from not only Diana and her team, but from the vendors and just the stress free atmosphere at our wedding. Everything went off without a hitch.
I have to say I had so much fun during my wedding, that as all the details we planned together came up during the day/night it seemed like I was hearing about them for the first time. It was like oh yeah I did ask for that. LOL.
Everyone was especially attentive to my mom who had been sick for a few days and really felt under the weather the day of my wedding. My poor mom..I'm her only child and she didn't get to party it up with us as much as she wanted to. Diana, maybe we can plan a makeup "party" just so my mom can re-live the day!
Diana from Oahu Wedding was exceptional. From the very first phone call we knew we had found someone special. Planning a destination wedding is not normally an easy undertaking, but with Diana it was no problem at all, in fact I would say that it was easier than having the wedding at home. The whole process was a breeze with Diana handling all the little changes and issues that planning a wedding entails with an awesome can do attitude. The day was perfect in every way and exceeded our expectations. I can't imagine that another planner could have done any better. We can not recommend Oahu Weddings and Diana highly enough. All the guests were blown away with what Diana had done for our wedding and they are still talking about it now.
I don't have much to say about Diana except, SHE IS THE GREATEST!!!!!! I don't know if this is fact or not, but Diana literally coordinated a beautiful, customized wedding via email & telephone. What makes her great, is that I literally sent an email maybe 2 1/2 weeks before the wedding (I know it was a short amount of time) and she created the best memory ever. She offered fabulous suggestions, guidance, and ideas. Even when I continue to bug her, she remain professional, responds, and helps out if she can. Diana is an expert at her job, sincere, honest, and a wonderful person. May God Bless her for blessing others with taking on the tedious task of planning an entire wedding and the bride have easy street.
Diana is truly amazing. I started out a very confused bride without a vision and over the course of 10 months of planning, Diana helped us have the wedding of our dreams. We were on a budget but she was worth every penny spent and more! She actually saved us a lot of money by giving us great advice about our locations! I wouldnt have changed a thing about our wedding. It was beautiful and went off without a hitch! Our guests loved every detail too! The minister, the make up and hair artist, the ceremony decor, the music, the FOOD, it was all perfect! I dont feel like we had a "budget" wedding at all.
She went above and beyond. My loving but forgetful husband forgot to bring the marriage license to the ceremony. Diana took hours of her free time (which I think is pretty rare) on the day after to meet us at the North Shore to get the license signed. Furthermore, she waited around for us to finish up taking pictures with our photographers on the beach so we wouldn't miss the sunset. She is the sweetest person and really knows what she is doing. If you contract her services, you can be sure you will have an excellent day with no worries!
Diana from Oahu Wedding made our wedding day so special and memorable. From the time we arrived in Oahu, things ran smoothly and efficiently. From the big events such as rehearsal and ceremony, to minute details such as drink types, Diana was always on the ball. She ensured that the day turned out to be everything that we had envisioned our perfect day to be. Family and friends found Oahu Wedding staff easy to work with, professional in nature, and overall good people. Mahalo for making our dreams come to fruition!
My husband and I are both from Belgium but we always dreamed of having a wedding abroad with our feet on the beach. And I am so happy I found Diana as our wedding planner, because she made this dream reality and we could not have wished it any better.
Our wedding was just with the two of us but we had some specific wishes but none of these were a problem for Diana and she looked for a solution together with us. And although we live on the other side of the world, I always had a reply on my email on the same day.
The day of our wedding was super relaxing and we had so much fun. There was not a single thing we had to worry about because Diana and her team had it all under control.
If I could it do it all over again, I would definitely book Oahu Weddings again and I would recommend it to every bride who dreams of a fantastic wedding in gorgeous Oahu!
Diana is gifted! The moment we started planning our destination wedding to Hawaii, I knew I wanted to work with her & her team! Even though we planned on a small wedding on a beach with 30 guest, she really made me feel like this was my special day and it was in GREAT HANDS! She paid attention to every detail, listened to my vision, gave me suggestions but never strayed from what we truly wanted for our wedding day ceremony! She coordinated everything with such ease, I knew I didn't have to worry about anything. At the last minute we couldn't get songs onto an ipod, the baskets for the girls flowers and of course we forgot the cake cutter (3 hours before the wedding) Diana had it covered. No need to panic at all! Our wedding day was everything we had ever dreamed of and more...a day we will always cherish and remember...She made our dream come true! I feel like we walked into this needing a wedding planner to plan our destination wedding...and we walked out with a friend who did an amazing job!
Oahu Wedding made our day so special. Diana and Tracey were excellent right from the beginning. They answered any questions we had straight away, and even though we are based in the UK, there was always a response as soon as I turned my computer on.
The communication was excellent, and I felt at ease and stress free the whole time.
We got married in the beautiful Mo'li Gardens, and the venue was amazing, so private and serene.
They planned everything perfectly for us with such detail exactly the way we wanted it.
The wedding was such a dream, I wouldn't have had it anywhere else.
I can't recommend Oahu Weddings highly enough, they made our day perfect.
Thank you guys :)
Diana is wonderful! We planned a destination wedding in Hawaii all the way from Washington State. After looking at Diana's portfolio and website, I trusted her insight and sense of style. When it came to our wedding day, all of my dreams were more than exceeded. The reception site looked beautiful and the ceremony was absolutely perfect. Diana works with great vendors, which made planning easy and stress-free.
Prices are reasonable and she will work with you to make your special day fit your budget. I'm so happy we chose a small destination wedding and so thankful that we had Diana to help us make it beautiful!
I would recommend Oahu Wedding's services to anyone and they should feel assured that everything will run smoothly and be exactly what you had hoped for.
Diana was instrumental in making my dream wedding a reality. She handled herself in a professional and friendly way and it really came across that she loves her job and is passionate about it. I felt comfortable putting my wedding in her hands from our first phone conversation and this was confirmed when I met her in person in Honolulu a few days before my wedding. Living in Canada makes a Hawaii wedding pretty daunting, but Diana handled everything with ease and care. She was worth every penny! She was so kind to my family and friends at my wedding and she was so attentive to every detail. She was always there in the background making things run smoothly and I was completely relaxed on my wedding day because of that. My husband and I had an amazing and happy day that we will cherish forever!! Thanks Diana and Oahu Wedding.
Diana and her team at Oahu Wedding are absolutely wonderful. I am the worst planner in the world and really relied on Diana for everything. I really liked her the first time I chatted with her on the phone - she's just super nice and relaxed and easy going and easy to talk to. So despite never having met her in person (our wedding was a destination wedding), and the fact that she actually had another ceremony already booked on our wedding day (and would therefore have to step out for a couple of hours), I still hired her to be our wedding planner. And it was the best decision! She's really detail oriented, responsive, creative, and has such a wealth of experience in wedding planning that she knew exactly what to do for aspect of the wedding. She also seems to know everyone in the wedding planning circle in Oahu, so we got hooked up with the best vendors - from our photographer to our florist. Our friends still rave about how everything about our wedding was perfect, and I really attribute most of the credit to Diana and Oahu Weddings.
Diana did an amazing job for our wedding. We planned a very small destination wedding from Houston and it was absolutely perfect. Even though we wanted the wedding to be small, we wanted it to look very nice and still have the wonderful feel of a well done wedding. Diana was so professional and arranged everything to perfection. The flower arrangements were beautiful, the ceremony setup was fantastic and the wedding cake was one of the best cakes I've ever eaten. She made our wedding so easy and carefree and I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Diana was absolutely wonderful in organising our wedding! She made planning a destination wedding all the way from Australia so easy and painless! Her bubbly and positive attitude went a very long way when our planned day was completely washed out (landslide and everything) and kept a very cool calm head in the midst of a massive storm (literally) When we finally were able to stand on the beach and become man and wife, a huge part of that perfect day finally was Diana.
Looking for a wedding planner? Look no further you have found the best! Diana and Oahu Wedding will provide top notch service day one till the day you wed. Perfection is hard to obtain but I(and our family would agree!) must say our wedding was just magical in every way! We had bkfst with Diana shared a vision and a dream was the reality. Genuine, sincere, organized and professional are just a few words to describe the services you can expect when working with Oahu Wedding. Vendors Oahu Wedding collaborates with are second to none and are at many price points so feel free to choose. Diana will help guide you. We are still clamoring about how amazing it really was now 46 days later! Our Thanks and Gratitude for Diana and Oahu Wedding will never cease. With love…Tabitha and Julio
Where do I begin... From the very beginning Diana was there is answer all of my crazy questions about "How do I do this?", "Where do I find that?", she knew it all! I am a very organized, picky, perfectionist and I always worry that things are NOT going to go right. Well let me say I did not have ANY of those feeling after my first phone conversation with Oahu Weddings. Diana eased my worries! Once we got to Oahu, Diana met with us to go over everything and make sure we are all on the same page. It's nice to have someone so meticulous in your corner on such an important day!
I cannot stop thanking Diana for our PERFECT dream wedding, there is nothing I would change. Oahu Weddings is the best company and very fair prices! I recommend them to everyone! We love you Diana and Oahu Weddings!!
I can only recommend Diana for planning your wedding. We are a German couple, my wife currently lifes in Germany and I study in Canada. From the first contact on Diana was super helpful and she organized teh most beautiful wedding I have ever seen. Everything was perfectly organized and she was very nice to all the non-english speaking people who were there. My cell phone also shut down a few days before we arrived on O'ahu but that didn't bother her too much, she coped with this circumstance very professional so that we had really stressless wedding day! We're so thankful that she made it possible for us to have our dream wedding!
Diana at Oahu Wedding was our guardian angle from start to finish. She went above and beyond our expectations to make sure our wedding day was the perfect day - from suggesting vendors, negotiations with vendors, cake suggestions, decor suggestions, flower suggestions...you name it, keeping our budget in mind the entire time, Diana was there. Because of her our wedding was magical. On the day of our wedding, we only had to relax and enjoy it; Diana ensured everything was perfect and stayed for the entire reception to make sure everything stayed perfect.
Diana and Oahu Wedding is a MUST HAVE for anyone thinking of planning a destination wedding in Hawaii. My husband and I wanted our dream wedding to be fun filled, vibrant and one a kind. Diana really captured our vision and gave us our dream wedding that was better than we could have imagined. It all started 8 months prior to the wedding date, during our very first call with Diana where we made an instant connection with her. We could tell she was professional, experienced and most importantly passionate. She spend the time to get to know us and followed up with detailed summary after every meeting as well as responded promptly to every call or email. She was amazing to work with and put our minds at ease every step of the planning especially when we got closer to the wedding date with each sync meetings. She was able to work within our budget and even came in under knowing we were very budget conscious. Diana’s creative flair was unique and helpful as she suggested to use tropical flavored macarons as a part of the center pieces to alternate with floral decor for practicality, fun originality as well as keeping us on floral budget.
The most amazing part of our wedding day was seeing all the decoration details, the personal touch that Diana and I had discussed throughout the planning process come together. I had a moment with Diana the morning of the wedding as I got ready and she took me around the entire venue before the guests arrived. Needless to say.. I was speechless and knew immediately it was going to be an amazing experience. Diana and the Oahu Wedding team was crucial for the flawless day of execution. Starting with the Ukulele musician, Kahu Bruce, florist, Gourmet Events Catering and our amazing DJ Troy, the seamless coordination behind the scene between the vendors was simply perfection.
Thank you Diana and Oahu Wedding for the most incredible and memorable day of our lives. Your professionalism and passion for what you do allowed my husband and I to enjoy every minute and moment on our wedding day. No doubt in my mind you guys are the best of the best at what you do!!!!! We love you guys!!
Sincerely you friends from Seattle,
Jerry and Diana
If you're having a destination wedding in HI, leave it in the hands of Oahu Wedding and you will have no regrets. Diana, the wedding planner, was TOP NOTCH! She is very personable, sweet, caring, detail-oriented, and organized. During my very first conversation over the phone with her, I knew I would be choosing Oahu Wedding to take care of my dream wedding. I put my trust into the company and Diana relieved so much of the stress I thought I would have to deal with. I had this very specific vision for my beach wedding, and Diana listened, offered advise, and made it more perfect than I could ever imagine. The vendors she works with are the best as well. My photos, my cake, the musician, etc. was amazing! Look no further because Oahu Wedding is the best on the island! Diana is truly passionate about what she does and however busy she may be, she will always make time for you and answersing your questions or concerns. THANK YOU DIANA for making my dream wedding a reality!
Diana at Oahu Wedding was fantastic to work with before, during, and after the wedding! We had a small group for our destination wedding and I am so glad I had her to help with the day-of coordination. Her professionalism and expertise were more than enough to be thankful for and she surpassed my expectations. She verified everything prior to the wedding with the vendors I hired and everything turned out great! Thank you Diana!
Love, love, loved everything about this planning service! I feel that throughout out the planning process that I was planning a wedding with a good friend! Diana is AMAZING! Everything about my special day was perfect! I had NO worries and everything was so beautiful! All the preferred vendors were perfect! The cake and the photography were AWESOME! I'm so grateful that I found Oahu Wedding because they simply are the best! The reviews speak for themselves!
Diana is amazing!! Our wedding was perfect to the smallest detail! I live in Dallas, TX and knew that I would need to hire a wedding planner in order to have a destination wedding. Diana made the wedding process so easy. She took care of everything from the cake to the photographer. I just needed to let her know what my vision was. Diana also makes a lot of great suggestions and always keeps your budget in mind. She is also very professional, organized and responsive to all emails and calls. All the items used in the wedding were beautiful and of high quality. Our officiate, Kahu Bruce, gave a wonderful ceremony that included elements of Hawaiian culture. The hairdresser/makeup artist Diana hired did a very natural clean look using airbrush makeup, which I loved! The wedding venue that she suggested was incredible. It was an outdoor balcony looking over the ocean. The wedding cake she ordered was so beautiful and delicious. Kai Photo was our photographers and the pictures are gorgeous. I still can't get over them! Overall, if you're planning to have a wedding in Oahu, I would highly recommend you go with Oahu Wedding.
So we live on Oahu, but all our family lives in California and we decided to fly Diana out to help us during the week of our wedding. This was the best decision we made.
The week of the wedding all questions will go to the bride. So her productivity level is going to drop significantly and she will have the most things on her to-do list. So it was very consoling having someone who understands what needs to be done and can make the right decisions on your wifes behalf while she is trying to maintain her sanity and check things off her own list.
Another thing you don't think about is your friends and familys agenda. Since most folks don't specialize in wedding planning they really don't understand how in the zone they need to be that week before the wedding. So people wll have there own list of things they need to get done and not make you bride as much as a priority she needs to be. That's why flying Diana out was the best thing we could have done.
From morning to night she was avaialble to us for four straight days. She gave us that extra support we needed to have a wedding for 300 people. If you are the type of person that is going to be very hands on with your event and wants to build it up themselves then having an expert like Diana is a must. She was definitley a key player in my wife and I having an awesome day together.
We worked with Diana at Oahu Weddings on a consultation basis, and it was the best thing we did to "treat" ourselves! Meeting with her for a few hours saved us DAYS, if not WEEKS, of time, planning, and mistakes! She was great at troubleshooting, and when it came to timing out our play-by-play for the big day, it was as if she could do it in her sleep (which she probably does!). It was clear and thorough, and we were able to hand it off to our friend who coordinated on the day-of, and it was a breeze! On top of that, they also had vases and candle holders that we could rent, which was a huge savings for our budget. Huge thanks to Diana and Oahu Weddings... you let me be a bride, and not a planner, on my wedding day!
I was planning our destination wedding from Los Angeles, and since our wedding party is so small, and I have pretty much selected all of the other vendors ahead of time, I decided to hire Diana for day of wedding coordination. It was money well spent! Diana is highly responsive, and took care of all the vendor confirmations about a month prior to our event. I was only expecting her to show up on the day of our wedding, but instead I got Diana and her 2 fabulous assistants! The 3 of them whipped our beach front rental house in shape in no time....she scrubbed our patio cleaned where the ceremony was going to take place, her assistant ironed the table cloth, directed the florist, picked up and delivered our wedding cake. Diana and her team exceeded our expectations, hire Diana, and you won't have to worry about a thing, just kick back and enjoy the day!
Diana from Oahu Wedding was the only reason our wedding in HI was breathtaking, flawless, and stress-free. Our wedding was a destination wedding and we put our special day into her hands and we were far from disappointed. We were asked questions about the pieces of our wedding and Diana basically did the rest, we just had to show up! The vendors that Diana had chosen for us were wonderful as well (florist, minister, and ukulele player). Diana went out of her way to make sure we were happy. I would definitely recommend Diana from Oahu Wedding to anyone who is looking for a day without worries, which will forever be a beautiful memory.
Diana and her team at Oahu wedding were everything we could of asked for in planning our wedding! Planning a destination wedding can be a stressful thing but with Diana everything was taken care of and it was stress free and exactly what we asked for. Everyone was soo nice and the photos were amazing! Everything was just perfect! I would recommend Diana and Oahu wedding to everyone planning a wedding in the Hawaiian Islands! I am so greatful that we found Oahu wedding, they all made our special day that much more special and we loved every second of it! Love Justin and Trista<3
Diana made our day so special. It was like a dream! Diana is the most professional and caring wedding planner out there. Our destination wedding turned out better than we could have ever imagined. Planning with Diana was simple and stress-free. Diana was always quick to answer our emails, had wonderful ideas, and really understood what our vision for the wedding was. Diana has an exceptional skill in working with people and understanding the thoughts of her clients. She is passionate with all she does. I could tell very quickly that she treats each and every couple in a special way. All the vendors that Diana chose for us were amazing and she really paid attention to every detail to make it perfect. Words can't express how happy we were. We will always be grateful to Diana!
Grace and Justin
We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding! Everything turned out beautifully and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Diana had everything taken care of and everything we arranged with her over the phone or email came out exactly how we wanted it. All of the vendors were friendly and our wedding photos are amazing. Our ideal wedding was to have the least amount of stress as possible and with Oahu Wedding that is exactly what we got. We are so grateful to have found Oahu Wedding and we wouldn’t have changed a thing.
With Oahu Wedding planning our day, we were able to just show up and look good. Diana and her staff had everything completely under control, and the day went incredibly smoothly. After deciding that we wanted our wedding to be in Hawaii, we knew that it would be difficult to plan from New Zealand. Having Oahu Wedding organize all of the details was one of the best decisions we made. Diana has an amazing amount of experience and local knowledge, and was lovely to plan with. I highly recommend Oahu Wedding for anyone considering getting married on Oahu.
Both my profession and that of my husband did not allow us much time to plan a wedding, let alone a destination wedding. Enter Diana and her Oahu wedding team. Diana was very thorough in taking care of the details my husband and I were not able to take care of. She is very organized: she sent us a nice welcome packet that took care of 99% of our questions right away and she asked very specific questions right from the start so she knew immediately what we wanted. She was very accommodating to suggestions, she responded to emails and calls promptly and she attended to every little detail. Everything she arranged or used for the ceremony was of the highest quality and it showed. The flowers were fresh, beautiful and they reflected my request to use local flowers only. Kahu Bruce did an amazing job putting together a very beautiful ceremony that blended both Hawaiian and Western elements. The hairdresser/makeup artist Diana suggested created a classy look that fit well with my dress. The wedding venue that she suggested was simply magical. Diana ordered our cupcakes from the Cakeworks Bakery. They were both delicious and beautifully decorated in a manner that reflected our wedding theme. The ukulele player complemented the ceremony nicely and I appreciate that she played a song for just my husband and I so we could have a first dance following our ceremony. Kyler from Kai Photo took gorgeous wedding photos that still put a smile on our faces. Diana not only stuck to the agreed-upon budget, she actually went under the budget. Our wedding was perfect, beautiful beyond our wildest dreams, actually. She made the entire process so easy that my husband and I had no anxiety leading up to the wedding. If you are even remotely considering working with Diana, please know this: her vendors as well as other people working in the business had rave reviews for her as well. Her professionalism is well-known all over Oahu. If you want to work with the best of the best, Diana from Oahu Wedding is it. She made our dream wedding come true and I’m sure she will do the same for you.
Mahalo, Diana, and aloha!
Claudia & Klint
Diana is wonderful! She was in tune with our ideas for our beach wedding. She came up with many helpful ideas for both the wedding and ceremony. She was friendly, professional and caring! A one in a million! We couldn't ask for more, and she helped to make our day " the happiest day of our lives" :)
Planning a wedding from thousands of miles away is hard, right? Not in our case. Our planner, Diana, was tiemly, helpful, fun and most of all listened. She made our day perfect. We arrived to our site for the wedding everything was there, she had us organized and we have never even seem the place, only photos. We placed our trust in her and she came through.
Words cannot express how blessed I was to have Diana @ Oahu Wedding plan our wedding. From the very moment I contacted her, I knew our wedding would be perfect. After a few minutes of speaking to her, I expressed to her my love for John. We have been together 21 years & I told Diana, I felt in my heart that it was just like yesterday. I was crying most of the time I spoke to her. Diana is an amazing lady & after all this time, John & I knew it was the right time to get married. Diana gave me my dream wedding. From our first conversation, I felt like I had known her forever!! I explained to her about the musician, flowers, and other details that we wanted &
Diana gave me more than I ever dreamed of. She would always call me back within a day and I knew planning a destination wedding from St Louis, she would be on top of things. She sent me a Timeline of our wedding & it was so detailed. Our wedding was @ Waialae Beach Park(Kahala Beach) @ 4pm.
She delivered my flowers to the Hawaiian Hilton & they were beautiful.
Diana arrived @ Waialae Beach Park to reserve the ceremony. She greeted our guests when the limo arrived. My heart was beating with excitement!!!
I will cherish our wedding day forever. We had twelve guests & everyone was crying throughout the ceremony. Our minister(Bruce) said the most beautiful words. He was genuine & our guests thought he was amazing. Our Musician(Danny) was fantastic!! He sang 'White Sandy Beach & Over the Rainbow'). We loved our conch blower(Nathaniel). The flower petals on the beach were beautiful!
John & I will have memories of a lifetime. Our guests expresed to us that it was a perfect Hawaiian wedding & was the most beautiful wedding they had been to in Hawaii.(All of them live in Hawaii). I will forever remember January 8th, 2011. John & I will always remember all of the special details Diana provied for us. She is an amazing person. She is professional, kind and very sincere. She set-up our reception @ the Tropics at the Hawaiian Hilton and it was perfect. Diana, thank you for making me feel like a princess and all of your hard work. I will forever have you in my heart!!! Every detail was taken care of from the flowers to the music. You are perfect in your job & I cannot thank you enough!! Mahalo, John & Megan We cannot wait to get our wedding video and our pictures.
Talk about flawless execution... Diana is AMAZING!! It can be a bit overwhelming planning a destination wedding but with the help of Diana I was completly stress free. She did an amazing job pulling everything together and our Wedding Day was everything I had ever dreamed of! If you are looking to get married on the island of Oahu, Oahu Wedding is the company for you.. I spent endless hours searching online for the perfect company, and I'm 110% positive I made the right decision.
Vendor response to review
Hi Alana and Eric,
Thank you for your kind words. It was wonderful planning with you and getting to know you both throughout the process. You wedding day was beautiful, and do I need to say it again? Alana - you looked stunning in your dress and your hair and make up were amazing! I love the vision you had for your wedding day and we are honored to have been part of it.
Mahalo Nui Loa,
Diana at Oahu Wedding was a true miracle worker!!! At first, I was hesitant to hire someone for the day of the wedding coordination, but I decided to relax on my wedding day and let Diana take over. It was absolutely the best decision I've ever made. She is so organized, efficient, caring, smart, pleasant... She helped me not only on my wedding day but with all the details before hand. I would not have had such a wonderful wedding if it wasn't for Diana. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
Vendor response to review
Oahu Wedding is happy you decided to have a "day of" coordinator too! You were amazing to work with and I enjoyed every minute if it. Congratulations on being such an organized bride and selecting a team of wonderful vendors for us to coordinate with on your wedding day! I am still in awe of the ceremony programs and reception dinner menus you created on your own using natural paper and products - what a talent to have!
Oahu Wedding was the solution I was looking for! I was not a very good bride; the thought of all the planning and the details overwhelmed me. My fiancé and I decided to elope to Hawaii. Diana made the process so easy for me. I was able to customize my entire ceremony in one phone call. Diana offered solutions to logistical issues, like traveling with a wedding dress and offered to schedule a day of pampering for me. On the day of the wedding, she called to check in and at the ceremony she made us feel completely at ease. Getting married in Hawaii was the best decision we could have made and choosing Oahu Wedding was the second best.. Our wedding day was perfect, stress free and focused only on us as a couple. I highly recommend Diana and her team!
One of the many fantastic qualities with their service I will mention was how easy it was to plan our amazing day. We are from Australia and with the time difference we were receiving calls 1am Hawaiian time to ensure we spoke at an appropriate Australian time. Everything that was organized was perfect, Diana arranged some of the most beautiful flowers we have ever seen!!
Anyone who books their wedding through Oahu Wedding is extremely lucky - just like us!!!
Planning a destination wedding from Australia was so easy and stress free thanks to Diana at Oahu Weddings. I had every confidence in her services and she was so fast to reply to my emails and my wedding day was so FAB!!!
I wouldn't of changed anything about the wedding. It was a fairytale and my family is still talking about it.
The photos are amazing, (thanks Kai Photo), flowers were beautiful, the beach venue and minister perfect. My make-up and hair was amazing. Lets not forget the transport.. the 25 seat Hummer Limo was out of this world!
Diana is a lovely person and I'm so glad I choose her services for my wedding day. I highly recommend her services she's a notch above anyone else!
Lauren & Andrew
If you plan on shipping anything to Hawaii do it well in advanced and do only express or priority mail.
Vendor response to review
Hi Matasha and Dean,
Thank you for taking the time to review our services and I appreciate you giving all brides the "head's up" that mailing to Hawaii must be done far in advance and through a reliable source. It was unfortunate that some if your items did not make it to Hawaii in time, and seeing your wedding come together seamlessly despite the missing items was amazing. I love that we were able to find a boutique that could accommodate your attire and alterations so quickly, create new favors for your guests, and that my assistant was able to spend time taking care of errands with the groom and groomsmen on the morning of your wedding day. The true blessing is that we were able to get to know you even better in the process. As I stood at the back of the ceremony and watched you exchange vows, no one would have ever known the series of events that took place in the days prior to your wedding day. You were both so "in the moment" and a true testament of what a wedding day is all about. Congratulations and thank you for the honor of allowing us to plan with you!
Diana and the Oahu Wedding Team
I would like to begin by saying…. thank you Diana and Oahu wedding for producing the best day of my life!!!
No word can describe the greatest experience we had working with Diana @ Oahu wedding for our Lanikuhonua private beach wedding on September 3rd 2010.
I am a IT project coordinator myself, and know how challenging it is to work with a client with so much ideas without knowing how to execute it. Diana had brought our detailed visions to the reality, and made our wedding so much better than we could’ve dreamed of!
We were planning a destination wedding from Los Angeles, inviting 30 guests from 3 different countries. I was so worried when I initially started planning, but at our very first phone meeting with Diana, we trusted her (because of her professional manner as well as super likable personality!) and she continued to provide us with the ideas and suggestions, and amazingly materialized the better version of what we had in mind on the day of our wedding. Despite of her super busy schedule, she is always responsive to the email (always within 24 hours), phone call, and no matter how many upcoming wedding she has in her schedule, we felt like she did really care for each one of them. It almost felt like your best friend or sister who totally understands your vision is helping you. All the venders she suggested was wonderful, from the makeup artist to the catering service, but she always kept her suggestions that will work with our budget. (I think this is most important, that many bride could easily double the budget once planning starts!). Another thing that we loved about her is that, she is very tech savvy, she always posts her wedding she produced on Oahu wedding Facebook site, providing all the brides new ideas on favors, flower arrangement, venue, place card etc… As I was planning, I checked their FB religiously since it was very resourceful! She happily accommodated our last minutes changes and questions, even during the event, she is a kind of person who would provide a Tylenol to the guest who was having a headache! She goes way beyond her profession as a wedding coordinator, and I am so lucky to have worked with her for the very important day for all our family member. Thanks to her, all our guest left our wedding saying that it was the most beautiful, most well organized, and most memorable wedding they have ever attended! Now that our wedding is over, both my husband and I miss Diana, and she made us want to come back to Hawaii to renew our vows every year… with her! I think, the wedding might be your biggest day of your life, but the whole process of the planning until the wedding day could be as joyful if you had the right wedding coordinator. I was never frustrated nor worried all thanks to Diana’s help, and I would give Oahu wedding 10 stars out of 5 if I could! Oahu wedding is the best, and I already recommended to friends who are planning a destination wedding : )
Oahu Weddings was very prompt to answer my requests! I am a very particular person with very high standards. Diana was very good at listening to me, building a relationship, and creating my vision that I would have never been able to do myself! She is able to take your style and make it all come together so effortlessly! She kept a great photo collection and sent me emails of ideas that I would like. If I changed my mind, she made sure the changes were made with no kind of frustration. She truly wants you to be happy!
The Value is UNBELIEVABLE! For all the work she put into everything, the arranging, contacting the vendors, helping me make up my mind, orchestrating, and the amount of stress she relieve from me, I was sooo happy. She even took time to meet with a harpist vendor she's never worked with to listen to their music and make sure they were reputable. She is able to keep your cost at your budget by suggesting things that would substitute yet have the same beautiful effect. I think that is very important in a planner!
Our wedding could be summed up as… A Dream Come True! Pictures, Words, Nothing, will be able to describe how flawless everything went on August 8, 2010.
Diana is fabulous! She is very personable, caring, spunky and honestly a joy to work with. She’s the type of person that will bend over backwards to make you feel comfortable. It doesn’t matter how many weddings she has on her plate, she takes the time to make each and every one of her brides feel important and special. She takes the time to get to know you, so she can truly understand the vision you have of your special day.
With the planning process I honestly had no idea what I was doing. I didn’t even know where to start. I had gathered photos of things we like, and that was pretty much the gist of it. Oahu Wedding made this process not only enjoyable, but quite fun as well. I sent my pictures via email or described our vision over the phone, and Diana made it a reality. All of my questions or requests were answered nearly immediately. I don’t think I waited more than 5 hours for any of my responses.
My family gave me a strict budget. Diana was very courteous of this budget and found many different ways to still have our elegant, dream wedding. She is full of creative and fun ideas and is more than willing to stretch the limits.
All of the vendors that Oahu Wedding recommended were fabulous. The food was amazing, the cake was gorgeous, the rental items were perfect and the officiate was astounding. All of my guests continue to rave about what they call “the wedding of the century.” If this gives you any indication, we had one guest whom is never pleased with anything… they said in their 55 years it was the most beautiful, elegant, entertaining wedding they had ever been to.
We had a few mishaps with our venue, some miscommunications. It’s a newer venue, and therefore is still in the learning process. However some of the complications that were associated were quite disappointing. Diana was very adamant about fixing the wrong, and making sure that our day was as perfect as it could be given the circumstances. . She used impeccable negotiation skills and was able to bring some elements to our wedding that with our budget would otherwise be unobtainable.
The day of the wedding went incredibly smooth as well. Diana made a strategic timeline for all of the events. Everything was on cue and seamless. Most people say that there is going to be something that goes wrong the day of your wedding, and you’ll just have to get over it, and laugh about it a year from now. Perhaps it’s due to Oahu Wedding’s extensive experience, or just the fact that they truly are the best at what they do… there wasn’t even a minor imperfection.
Down to the placement of the vases on the table, everything was absolutely the way my husband and I had imagined. Oahu Wedding even found a way to surprise us with something that we were unable to fit into our budget. Throughout the wedding we used one species of Orchid. We decided a few weeks before the wedding that we wanted to place an orchid on each of the guests’ napkins at the reception. However, due to our strict budget we had to resort to another species of Orchid. The day of the wedding to our surprise my favorite Orchid was not only placed on each of the guests napkins; but they adorned the cake and archway as well. It not only brought a huge smile to my face, but my guest’s were blown away by their beauty. It was that magic touch that pulled everything together. I’m an eternally grateful for that wonderful surprise.
Ok, I think I’ve written a small novel. I just have so many wonderful things to say about my experience with Oahu Wedding!! I would highly recommend them to anyone planning a wedding in Oahu! They truly are the best at what they do, and I promise if you decide to use Oahu Wedding you won’t be disappointed!
Thank you Oahu Wedding for helping make 8-8-10 the most amazing day of our lives!!!

Oahu weddings were very friendly to speak to, they were willing to call me where ever I was in the world and the way they responded to my emails was of the highest quality.
It was the best decision that me and my husband have ever made and booking a wedding planner online was a little scary because you didnt know what it would be like once you got there.
Diana and the team were excellent and made our decision more easier as she would explain how the day would be planned out.
When we both got to Hawaii, our meeting with her was fantastic, she is very friendly and very professional. She really looked after us whilst we were in Hawaii and made sure that everything went according to plan on our wedding day.
When choosing the pastor Diana made an excellent choice and we met the pastor before he married us and helped us with the process of the marriage license (filling it out) really got to know the both of us, we rehearsed what we we going to do for the day and it was great.
The Limo service, the videographer, flowers, chairs for family was just of highest quality and i would highly recommend Diana and her team at Oahu Weddings.
Thank you for making our wedding day a day to remember forever
Sharon & Kevin
Diana, you were a pleasure to work with. You really made this so easy on us in the planning process that we did not stress about anything. Our wedding day was everything we hoped for and more! The food was amazing! The cake was beautiful! The flowers and the centerpieces were fabulous! You have such attention to detail! Mahalo Nui Loa! - Leigh & Mando
Diana was incredible. My husband and I live on the East Coast, both of us are busy professionals working long hours. I don't know what we would have done without her. She was responsive to e-mails, kept us on top of deadlines, took care of most of the contracts, and was willing to work with us from a far distance. She provided suggestions for vendors and did some of the floral work herself to help us save money. She has a professional demeanor and is very passionate about her work. The day of the wedding I was very relaxed because I knew she was taking care of each step. Definitely would recommend her!
Oahu Wedding was absolutely outstanding in the planning of my wedding. I felt very well taken care of while planning my wedding. Diana was patient and helpful and made everything about our experience wonderful. I would recommend Oahu Wedding to anyone looking to get married in Oahu.
Highly recommended. My wife and i were living in japan at the time we were planning our wedding as well as planning to move back to California. we had a lot on our plate but Diana was so helpful, friendly, and professional. she has years of experience and many industry connections that allow her to make your wedding unique. thanks to her we had the destination wedding of our dreams within our budget.
Thanks to Diana at Oahu Wedding our wedding planning was void of stress and the entire day was flawless. All Vern and I had to do was tell her what we wanted, respond to a few short e-mails and show up at the appointed time. Every detail of our wedding was well planned and we had the perfect wedding - Diana had everything set up and it was the most beautiful ceremony we have ever witnessed. Our minister, photographer, flowers, cake, and location were so much more than we expected. Thank you, Diana, for providing us with the perfect wedding.
Mr. & Dr. Holt
If you are looking to have the wedding of your dreams in Paradise, Diana of Oahu Wedding is absolutely, positively the wedding planner you are looking for. She made our visions and dreams a reality on our wedding day. She exceeded our expectations on every level- from the moment we started planning to our seamless breathless ocean front reception. She truly is an exceptional person to work with and we highly recommend her professional services. Mahalo nui loa Diana!
If you're looking for the best wedding planner for a great value, your search is over. Diana of Oahu Wedding went above and beyond the call of duty for my wife and I. We had many challenges along the way that we could not address ourselves due to busy schedules. Diana handled everything for us - her knowledge coupled with her inside connections with vendors made our experience not only hassle-free, but less expensive than if we had to do it ourselves. Thanks Diana !
Diana is the absolute best! She made everything perfect, and completely stress free! There were a few availability problems with what we wanted, but she was able to pull together stuff that actually worked even better than the original plan. I could not have pulled off a destination wedding in windy Waimanalo without her help. Every single detail was completely perfect. Thank you Diana! Oahu wedding is truly a professional, fun, friendly company. You will not be disappointed!
Oahu Wedding is amazing on so many levels! Most importantly to my wife & I, this is a gay-friendly company. The planning process was a breeze for us as Diana was able to quickly & accurately turn our general ideas into reality. She was also exceptionally responsive & quick to assist with questions, clearifications, etc. The wedding plans were completely flexible right up to the start of the ceremony. (For example, the vendors & Rev. were set up on a grassy part of the beach. Diana asked if we wanted to be married on the sand instead & it took only a few minutes for the new site to be set-up). We were very pleased with the vendors Diana choose for the photography & videography; both were very professional.
My wife & I had a reception planned 7 days after returning from Hawaii (10 days after our ceremony). The videographer dropped off a temporary (edited!) copy of our ceremony to our hotel the day after our wedding so we could show it at our reception. The photographer also edited all pictures within in a few days of the ceremony so we would have them in time for the reception.
The minister Diana choose was a perfect fit for us (Rev. Fisher). The flowers were better than we expected given we did not work directly with the florist (of course, Diana handled that). My bouquet made it from Hawaii to Indiana & is still alive & beautiful! Also, Diana lined up a hair & make-up artist for me; she was fantastic! My hair & make-up lasted all day & evening even in the high winds! Lastly, Diana has an amazing ability for calming anxieties & concerns. After each tiime I spoke with her, I felt more comfortable that our wedding would be exactly what we hoped for.
We strongly recommend Oahu Wedding!!
Deciding to get married in another country is very exciting but also a little scary not knowing what you are booking or who to trust your wedding day preperations with, especially with so many website for Hawaii weddings, so i was so thrilled when i found Oahu Wedding!
The service i received from Diana was exceptional, whether it was emails or phone calls Diana was always there to help answer any questions promptly and was always very helpfull and was full of knowledge about anything to do with getting married in Hawaii.
The Day went ahead without any worries. The flowers were gorgeous, the driver turned up right on time, Diana was at the beach setting up for the wedding and helping with the guests, Groom and his Groomsmen and she was there to assisit me and my bridesmaids when we arrived to organise the walk down the aisle. Aside from this Diana also orgained the wedding cake, Make up artsit, a fantastic minister and the photographer and believe me the photos were truly magical!! Diana was even at the wedding recetion when we arrived just to make sure everything was perfect, which of coarse it was.
I cannot give Oahu wedding Planners enough praise as they made our wedding day the most perfect memory that we will treasure for ever.
5star service you can't go wrong!
Diana at Oahu wedding exceeded all of our expectations. She was open to all of my ideas, and brought them all together to make a beautiful and memorable ceremony. All in attendance said it was the most beautiful wedding they'd ever seen, and friends who saw pictures said the same. I would recommend Diana to anyone looking for a beautiful and stress-free wedding day!
Choosing Oahu Wedding to plan our destination wedding was the best decision we could have made! The services available to us allowed us to plan a stress-free wedding from 4000 miles away - Diana at Oahu Wedding was so helpful and open to everything I desired for my special day, but thanks to her professional eye knew what would work best(and within the budget :D ). I'm so glad we chose Oahu Wedding; we couldn't have done it without Diana <3
Everything was perfect thanks to Diana and company.
Oahu wedding was amazing! My planner, Diana, made sure everything was perfect, and she was always so helpful.
I found Oahu Wedding on a complete whim. I planned all the way from Texas and once I got to Hawaii the wedding of my dreams was waiting for me! It was as if they were inside my head and knew exactly what I wanted and even made it better! If I could do it all over, I would choose Diana and Oahu Wedding again. Thank you Oahu Wedding for making my dreams come true!
Diana and Oahu Wedding are, without a doubt, the key to pulling off the perfect Hawaiian wedding. The two of us had spent months searching for someone on the island who could help take the stress out of planning a destination wedding while also keeping an eye on our tight budget and transforming our vision for the big day into reality. Diana was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, detail-oriented, and a consummate professional. We were pleasantly surprised, time and time again, by the fact that she seemed to anticipate each and every one of our wants and needs long before we even realized what they were. In the end, our romantic beachfront ceremony turned out to be everything we had dreamed of: a simple, relaxed, intimate celebration of our love set against a gorgeous tropical backdrop – the memories of which we and our guests will always cherish…!
I would recommend Oahu Wedding to anybody who want to have nothing less than a perfect wedding!
You won't find a better vendor anywhere! Diana is giving her clients the perfect touch and can make your dream wedding happen, from the venue, to the cake to the photographer! I felt like my sister was taking care of me and never had any doubt I would have the best service.
We live very far away from hawaii, and are thinking about going back to do our vow renewal in a few years, just to get the chance to live this experience all over again...
Go for it!
Oahu Wedding rocks!
Diana was the most wonderful wedding planner!! She worked hard to make my wedding day spectacular. Definitly would recommend Oahu wedding planners!!
I am so glad that I found Oahu Wedding and that Diana was a part of my wedding planning experience. At first I couldn't find anyone and the work would have been immense to plan alone - let's just say without her, I would not have been able to do it!! With family coming from Canada, US, and overseas, I had a lot of things to plan and Diana never ceased to be responsive or helpful, and always with a cheerful tone! She was able to cater to my whimseys and kept me motivated by being involved with my crafting ideas, and was very flexible when I needed to change things up or if I had to match a certain budget.
I also want to say that every guest that attended thought the wedding was the most beautiful and perfect wedding they have ever been to.
Thanks SO MUCH Diana and Oahu Wedding!!! I was a stressfree bride! I recommend that anyone who is flying in from away and who wants a perfect and stress free wedding to definitely hire Diana to help with their wedding planning. The investment made is worth every penny and even will save you money in the long run.
Hugs and hope to see you again Diana!
Love Joyce & Joseph

We recently worked with Diana and her team on a destination wedding. When we got to the ceremony site (and we always get there early), Diana and her girls had the site ready. They were on hand to solve any problems that came up. We also appreciated all the little touches and extra details that they had worked on. The reception site was also beautifully set up and everything ran on schedule. The bride and groom had a wonderful time thanks to Diana and her team.
