Our wedding was amazing!! I could not have imagined a better day and I will cherish the day in my memory forever.
This is who I used and the tent and chairs were perfect. I would recommend using the Chivari chairs, even though they are more expensive, they really add to the ambiance.
Cake was incredible. I thought wedding cake was supposed to look pretty and taste bad. Their chocolate cake was the best I've ever had.
She is OUTSTANDING!! You can just let her do her thing. She is very good with colors and makes everything look very natural. Her makeup is so light weight I didn't even feel like I had any on. My make up and hair also lasted all night (which is amazing since it was 90 degrees out). She did my hair and make up, and make up for my mom and bridesmaids. Everyone loved what she did. My mom wasn't on the list to get her make up done but after she saw what Mia did for us she wanted to be added to the list (my mom never wears make up either so that's a testament to how natural Mia makes her make up look). Oh, and the best part is that her prices are extremely low for the quality of work she provides. I would recommend having Mia do all the make up and your hair and having her assistant to your bridesmaids hair (I think her name was stephanie). She did an excellent job with my bridesmaids hair.
AMAZING. We surprised our guests with this and they all loved it!!!!! He's very inexpensive too. I think he's the head of security for the St. regis but I don't know how to find him directly. Our wedding planners arranged everything with him.
Mike(DJ) was fantastic. Very professional and excellent song choices. Our whole wedding group was dancing the entire night. I never expected that would happen.
amazing food!!!!!! My dress was a little tight so I couldn't eat my whole plate (which was disappointing because the meal was fantastic). If you want a sit down meal, this is the vendor to go with. I would recommend buying your own alcohol at Costco though (saves a lot of money!!)
One of my favorite vendors. Wendy did an incredible job with our flowers (don't let the shop name fool you). You can give her a picture of anything and she will replicate it. Her website does NOT do her work justice. The arrangements she did for us were very vibrant and unique. Her work is AMAZING. I would recommend finding what you like on another website and then showing Wendy the pics. She really can do anything. I just gave her a general idea of the flowers and colors that I liked from a Maui website (blueskyweddings.com) and she did the rest. The best part is that her prices are extremely reasonable. I was stunned on my wedding day by the flowers (and very sad that I couldn't keep them forever). My aunts who have won awards for their own private gardens could not stop talking about how what a wonderful job Wendy did. My aunts even took all of the centerpieces after the wedding and put them in water so we could enjoy them for a few more days while we were in Kauai.
Ryan and Lisa did a fabulous job. They are very professional and I would highly recommend them. They have to fly in from Oahu but it is worth the money for their flights!!!!!!
If you have the money for a planner. These guys do a fantastic job. I really enjoyed working with Jen. They know all of the vendors on the island and will help you pick the right vendor for you. If you don't have the money for a planner. I would use all of the vendors that I've listed and you will be very happy (I was shocked at how good each of the vendors was). Day of wedding coordination is key though. You don't want to be organizing people on your wedding day.
Eric is wonderful!!!!! I had kauai tent company put up a tent for our wedding and Eric did all of the lighting on the tent and outside. It was amazing.
Beachfront cottages in Hanalei. You rent these three cottages for the week (Kahakai, Nalu and Paniolo) and have your private wedding right there on the grass in front of the beach. We stayed in one cabin with our friends and our families stayed in the other two. Website is. www.hanaleiland.com
Nice place but doesn't compare to the beach front cabins on Hanalei (hanaleiland.com). Also, very pricey. In Kauai it is cheapest to rent a cabin or condo online (VRBO.com, homeaway.com). If you're a person who loves hotels and wants to be pampered and have meals made for you then this is an excellent choice. Watch for deals online.
Beautiful but very expensive. If you don't stay here I would recommend doing their buffet breakfast and sitting outside. The view is breathtaking!!
