My wedding was great-the place, the surroundings, the serene atmosphere,the weather, and the company. Everything fell into place.
Luana Hills was such a beautiful place and the staff was all awesome. I couldn't have done most of it without the help of Kimberly Izumoto. She went above her duties to make this day the way it was. The staff was full of energy and aloha. The country club had everything from locker rooms for both the groom and bride and it was so spacious and clean. They also had a beautiful backdrop of the Ko'olau Mountains from the ballroom. It was breath taking.
I recommend this place to anyone who wants to get married here. Just beautiful.
Beverly wasn't my first choice, but Mia Moriguchi who was in fact a sweet lady. I was thankful that after the fact the my first hair&makeup people didn't fall thru. Mia was able to take me in a week before my wedding. Although Mia had an emergency come up, she was nice enough to recommend her teacher, who is in fact Beverly. Beverly was prompt and although I didn't have a run through with her she did exactly everything I asked and thru pictures I showed. She was very friendly. I recommend both Mia Moriguchi and Beverly Kaneshige.
I worked with Chris who helped us with the suit my husband rented. We did have a coupon my Mother in law got when she attended the Bridal Show. I recommend that anyone who rents purchase this coupon because it really helps with the outcome of the tux. We had a great deal on the rental and the suit was beautiful.
They do provide decors and assistance with the flower decorations, but we bought the flowers at wholesale. They were helpful and had great reasonable rates.
They are so on top of it. I wasn't there to have my cake tasting but they were able to accomodate my in-laws who live in Hawaii. Charity was a sweetheart. They really did a great job with the cake (decorations) and it tasted so good. The prices are very, very reasonable.
Dang's limousine service was great. They arrived on time and picked us on time too. The plus side was after the ceremony because one of his drivers was running late, Dang himself can and picked us up on a stretched Hummer. How cool was that? They have flat rates, all you have to do is inquire within.
Ryan was the person I worked with. He was very easy to work with. I hired them a week before the wedding and they totally came through with everything. They even found my first dance song for me because I forgot to bring it with me on my ipod. (the music was from a group from my home town of Guam..so quite hard to find). They were on time, professionally dressed, friendly, and easy to work with. PRICES are very reasonable even if you're working on a budget.
I found Chris on craigslist a week before my wedding. He did a great job. I was a bit hesitant about having a soloist play during the day because he wasn't able to come for our wedding rehearsal, but because of his experience I didn't have to worry. He works with whatever you want. Gives you a song list and would be willing to learn a song if he doesn't have the song you want. Nice guy!!
Momi Abdon was the minister I had and she was excellent. She was great to work with and is open to everything you want. She incorporates what you want with her sermon/ceremony. I love that she has a flat rate and doesn't charge for travel fees. Her charge for the rehearsal fee is also great. Lovely lady and is there to make your day a great one. She offers wedding coordination planning too.
From the beginning I saw this place, I fell in love. At first it was quite a bumpy meeting (change of ownership and management), but everyone I worked with was very helpful and sufficient. Kimberly Izumoto was the last person I worked with and she was over and beyond my expectation. I was blown away by her go-get 'em attitude. She was friendly, helpful, and had a great personality. She truly excellent. The ballroom service was awesome, the decorations and set-up went smoothly, and the staff was all professional and had a lot of 'ALOHA'. I recommend that anyone who wants to get married at Luana Hills do so. You will not be disappointed.
