About Our Packages:
All packages are good for just two people or with a small group of family and friends.
Packages prices are for our Honolulu/Waikiki locations from Monday to Friday. Weekends, holidays, and locations outside of Honolulu/Waikiki are additional.
Vendor services are provided by our "Ohana" or family of professionals and all services are performed by an individual vendor i.e. we do not have one guy doing a bunch of stuff.
All packages include a DNLR beach wedding permit for up to (10) participants. You can add more people if required. The maximum allow for the permit is (30).
Packages include what's listed. It's pretty simple. If you do not see a service of product in the package, it's not included.
Our Hala, Orchid, and Maile packages include the same services and coverage. What differentiates these packages as reflected in the price, is the amount of photo product included. The higher the cost, the more photos you get. Our Ilima package includes all of our primary "on-site" ceremony services.
Use our Price & Planning Order Form to upgrade any professional service in a package, add a professional service to any package, or add extra products we offer to any packages.
The easiest way to select a package is to choose the package which has the photography product (number of photos 3,10, or ALL) you want and then add the extras you need OR simply choose our Ilima package, the number of photos you want, and any extras you may need.
4.712% State excise tax is additional.
Packages and prices are subject to change without notice.
What's The Deal?
It's kind of like buying stuff on "Amazon". The real stuff, costs what it costs. Sometimes you'll get stuff just a little cheaper from reputable sellers who don't need to charge retail prices. Some stuff looks like the real stuff at pretty much the same price or just a little less but, it's fake. And then you get the fake stuff at the fake cheap price. Hey, who hasn't tried to "cheap-out"? We've all tired it LOL!
Did you know that a consumer study showed that 50% or more of stuff on Amazon (in the study) were fake while claiming otherwise? 13 out of 13 beauty products made to look like the real stuff were fake knockoffs.
You've probably seen the wedding packages that offer more, cost less, and make the same claims of excellence. Don't fool yourself, buying wedding packages has evolved to being like buying on Amazon.
The deal is, we charge what we charge and we offer our services at prices that cannot be gotten individually any lower. Hey, we'd like to charge more but, it's tough when you're competing with the "nice looking" cheap stuff. Nobody makes a crappy website with junk photos LOL.
As an example, we recently had a woman who loved us and wanted to book us but, said that our vendor travel fees precluded her from getting more stuff so she went with someone else.
We had to tell her that, it's out of our control. Simply, top professionals, who produce consist product, and are in high demand by hotels and churches (who charge far more), require the fees and we have to pay it.
What we didn't ask her to consider is that, if you're not paying "what it costs" are you really paying for what you think you're buying? Are you really saving or are you setting yourself up for disappointment? After all, you can't "return" your wedding like you can stuff that sucks back to Amazon!
That's what we have to compete against. Fortunately, we've always had enough "smart" people, the regular Amazon shoppers we suppose LOL.
“It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s worse to pay a little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money, that’s all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot... it can’t be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better”. - John Ruskin -
