@MommaJenn28:  congrats! We are getting married in Hawaii too! My sis is a wedding planner there if you need any advice. She is planning mine and I am so grateful! She does the Big Island, Oahu and Maui. She is rated #1 in her market. PM me if you want my sister’s info and website. 

We are getting married at the Fairmont Orchid on the Big Island.

My fiance loves the wine country there- goes to Yakima every year! We actually looked into buying a place at Zillah Lakes development, but I digress…

We are getting married in Makena (south of Wailea on Maui) at Kukahiko Estate- I haven’t been to Oahu, but if you consider Maui, this info might help you! The south side is known for the most beautiful beaches and gets very little rain each year-much less that the north or west side of the island.

We are using Tropical Maui Weddings- Lori and Jackie are so great and patient (I am very indecisive!). Lori’s hubby Jamie Lawrence will sing at our ceremony and reception, which will be held at Capische restaurant in Waliea. Check them out if you like: http://www.tropicalmauiweddings.com/index.aspx I have a friend on Maui who recommended them, so I didn’t call around to different companies. They are very happy to work with whatever budget!

I’m using Cheryl from http://www.mauiweddingcakes.com/   for wedding cake.

The best florist is Darren Keala at http://www.kuolanifloral.com/  he is absolutely incredible and awesome- does wedding planning also http://www.blissmauiweddings.com/ and may do Oahu as well. I can’t say enough great things about him- he goes above any beyond!!!

Everything to do with planning has been fun and easy so far. A great team of people, I feel, is really important when planning from far away!

For photography, Anna Kim was the best!


We are renting a 3 bdrm condo in Wailea Beach Villas so that most of our family doesn’t have to pay for separate accommodations. Kind of pricey ($900/night for a penthouse), but cheaper than renting 3 separate hotel rooms, and more fun that we are all under the same roof (we each have ensuite bathrooms). The property looks amazing, and right next to Shops at Wailea, beachfront. VRBO is awesome for finding accommodation deals- $100/night can be done if you hunt around.

Good luck and feel free to PM if you have any questions:) Long post- I tend to ramble. lol
