"Absolutely stunning, amazing and fantastic!”
“The best wedding we’ve ever been to, hands down!”
“The wedding was better than ours, and we did a great job!”
“How did you find this place it’s gorgeous”
These are just some of the comments our guests made about our wedding.A princess wedding was what my wife had always wanted and I wanted to be sure her childhood dream came true, so when we started searching for a wedding location only the best would do, we had already ruled out the Four Seasons at Hualalai, the Hilton and Marriott hotels at Waikoloa all due to location and that they are so far from town we would have to hire buses to get people to and from the venue,
So after extensive searching and head scratching, a golfing buddy of mine suggested the Kona Beach Bungalows stating that they may be just perfect for us, I contacted them straight away and organized a viewing of the entire property, it was amazing and instantly my Fiancée and I knew this would be the place we would be married.
Over a year of planning then begins, with many vendors wanting to see the property so they knew all the details to ensure the perfect wedding, this involved a great many visits to the property and at all times the owners allowed us entry if no other guests were staying in the main house, I couldn’t believe how helpful they were indeed a very true aloha spirit, that is also reflected in the furnishings and finishes.
So at the start of our wedding week our guests began to arrive and were shown to their accommodations, we wanted both families close so they could bond and that is exactly what happened in the comfortable surroundings, with each family cooking for one another, it worked out better than we had expected and we think it was due to the atmosphere created by the bungalows, both calming and familial.
We then had 3 days of hustle with caterers and organisers, from first the bridal shower, then the rehearsal dinner and finally of course the big day.
We had a clear 30x30 Marquistent erected in thegarden with plenty of seating organised inside, just in case of the occasional downpour, with plenty of space in the rest of the garden for us to have an outside ceremony, a refreshment tent and a staged photobooth for enjoyment, there was not any sensation of being cramped.
Our caterers utilized the gourmet kitchen in the main house to create the most amazing meal I think I have ever eaten and indeed most of our guests would agree, with thanks to Chef Katherine Louie, Chef David Paul and their team for going above and beyond.
After the ceremony and the meal came the music and dancing on the lanai of the main house after the buffet line was cleared away the area became the perfect dance floor and the lightingcreated by our DJ team was electric, with uplighters providing ambience on the pillars of the house and a full lighting rig on the lanai, all courtesy of DJ Tiger Productions.
It truly was a perfect day and everything flowed together seamlessly,My wife and I had the best start to married life that I believe possible and all thanks to Kona Beach Bungalows.
