A letter from Newlywed Bride to Engaged Bride:

If you are planning to have your special day on Oahu or Kauai you definitely have the right person.

Wedding CenterpieceKalona always answered my questions promptly and helped us throughout the process from the venues to the vacation rentals and all the wedding services.

Trust me. The planning was not that easy and very overwhelming from so far away.

There were several things which stress you out because it is like you take three steps, and then there is something that comes up so you lose a step. Once you start planning your wedding with her, you will know she truly cares for you and your special day.

I slept so well the day before my wedding because I knew Kalona had everything together.

We could not have done this without her!

Aloha Kalona –
Beautiful FoodI want to thank you so much for coordinating our wedding. The flowers were lovely, the venue was spectacular and we loved the food – so yummy – best we had the whole 2 weeks we were in Hawaii.  We couldn’t have asked for anything more convenient and lovely – everyone had a great time!  We thank you so very much for recommending our the military location so we could our reception and the beach right there for the wedding, we couldn’t have asked for anything more.

Jeanne was great to work with for the photos, she is very fun and did a great job and she is going to make us an album. You can feel free to use this for a letter of recommendation for your services.

Kalona did a wonderful job in helping us find the perfect venue and vendors for our wedding and reception on Oahu.

Wedding Reception CenterpieceMy family and friends were so impressed by how everything just came together so smoothly on the day of from the decor to the catering it could not have been more perfect. We brought our own minister and she helped us make sure he was legally able to perform our ceremony. She really wanted us to have the wedding that we envisioned. When we received our photos we were so happy with the results! Our wedding in Hawaii was more that we could ever have imagined thanks to Kalona and her crew!

Fancine and Eugene Wedding ReceptionMy husband and I will be married one year this coming Sept. 21st and we owe our wonderful wedding experience to Kalona of A Rainbow in Paradise. We knew we wanted to get married in Kailua and had some ideas but it wasn’t until we found Kalona and enlisted her help that it all came together. She is very easy to work with and has great ideas and suggestions. She even helped us handle a very large snafu that would have been a lot more stressful if not for her help! She is very knowledgeable and has great relationships with all of the vendors. All of this combined made for the most magical , perfect wedding day ever! A Rainbow in Paradise helped make our day exactly the way we wanted it!

Waikiki WeddingWe were very pleased with Andrew and Nao’s wedding and reception.  Their reception was so elegant and full of so many surprises and emotions.  The food was delicious!  The hula show was a lovely added bonus.  Everyone had a wonderful evening!
