Who We Are
We are a small group of top, full-time wedding professionals, performing our specialty services for weddings and vow renewals. Most of us for 20-35+ years on Oahu and traveling throughout the State of Hawaii.
Each of us is a recognized and experienced Hawaii professional providing services to Hawaii locals, hotels, churches, private venues, top wedding planners, and sometimes even for other websites. At much higher prices of course :)
Our lead vendor has been planning Hawaii weddings and vow renewals on this website since 2004 and before that, a top photographer for large local weddings since 1984.
Throughout those years, we've seen many changes but, we've remained true to our goal of providing the highest quality services and products at the best possible prices.
We think of ourselves as a "Ohana" (family in Hawaiian) and we perform as a practiced team to ensure that you'll have a happy, joyful, and memorable Hawaii wedding or vow renewal experience.
We're all good and sincere people, we love what we do, and we enjoy working together (most of the time like any family haha), and frankly, you get to be part of our family on your special day :)

About Our Planning
We make your planning easy. It's as simple as going to our "Prices and Planning Order Form" and going through it.
We say what works best, what may work, and we'll also tell you what doesn't work. The last thing we want is to have a less than successful event because, we cared more about getting the job at any cost versus planning for success.
Whereas large events happen in "controlled" environments such as private estates, hotels, and churches, beach ceremonies happen out in the open and at public locations (all beaches in Hawaii are public).
Considerations like the best time for lighting, weather, traffic, parking, accessibility, and other circumstances that cannot be anticipated or controlled, all affect the outcome consequently, it’s even more important to get things “right” with these small beach ceremonies.
Nobody can guaranty an outcome given all the variables of a beach ceremony and anyone who claims too is not being truthful. With that said, we do have the experience to get it more "right" than otherwise.
Our main planner has been planning Hawaii weddings and vow renewals on this website since 2004.
He's been an award-winning, top wedding photographer in Hawaii, since 1984 having experience working large local weddings and with our beach ceremonies on Oahu (and every island in Hawaii except, Niihau). See here.
That's a lot of experience few people if any have, and especially in the very limited beach wedding business.
Questions and Answers
Do you have an office?
No, we are Internet based (like Amazon) and do not require a "brick and mortar" store/office. There's just no reason to have that unnecessary expense. We've seen more than a few websites with a Waikiki office disappear overnight and leave clients stranded. Because we are Internet based, we can have the most reasonable prices.
Do you meet us before the ceremony?
No. If your event was planned correctly, there should be no details to be discussed just before the ceremony day and especially given that, under most circumstances and except for an emergency, it's just too late to make substantive changes. If meeting a planner to finalize "details" were a requirement of the company you hired, we'd say you hired the wrong one. And who wants to spend the extra time (and cost) when you could be sitting on the beach? LOL.
Why aren't you cheaper than some websites?
Simply said, we aren't a cheap "tourist" website. We not looking to make "easy money" and we don't use beginners, less talented vendors, hobbyists, part-timers, college students, or husbands or wives who aren't established professionals in their own right.
Why don't you cost more than other websites?
Besides not having to pay Waikiki office rent, we don't pay for staff or "middle" people who do not provide a direct service or product, we don't do unnecessary things like meeting with you before the day, and we're just very efficient in how we do things. We charge what's fair and what's kept us in business year after year.
Why do your vendors cost less than if we got them ourselves individually?
Because our vendors are "anonymous", we eliminate their advertising and business costs and free them of the work required to communicate and service clients. We do that and like our clients, all they have to do is show up. LOL.
We Cannot Say It Any Better
Than This Client
"Thank you. You are very helpful. I am just trying to make sure everything is perfect and as you can imagine, it's pretty difficult from Australia - organizing a wedding in Hawaii! Having said that, since you have the experience and clearly I don't, I am just going to put my complete trust in you. I am sure you will do the best that you can.
I have been contacting places in Hawaii that advertise weddings for a few months now. You have been the fastest to respond and by far the most helpful. I have given your web address and copies of our correspondence to my travel agent here. She often has people asking her about weddings in Hawaii and she refers them to a company here in Australia that negotiate etc. with people in Hawaii.(At an incredibly expensive rate too). Your excellence has allowed me to show her that there is no need to refer people to an expensive company when they can do the work themselves! So, having said that, you now have the respect of my travel agent and she will be referring others to you.
I will be making my reservation payment shortly."
