After deciding to do a Maui Wedding, I was wondering how in the world I would find a planner. Luckily, because of word of mouth from my SIL, I found Kim Yonamine and Exclusive Island Weddings. She picked me as one of her few weddings in 2013, amazingly she had a full time job and planned weddings part time. I could not believe how quickly she pulled everything together. I told her off the bat that I was trying to plan a wedding from NYC and she enthusiastically had so many ideas that I was in love with and at times she sounded more excited than I was! She is a logistic and creative genius that was always the consummate professional. Having so many contacts, she was able to line up meetings so that I only had to do one flight home before the wedding to meet them and see venues. She nailed it, with the first venue choice and I almost didn’t want to look at the others. If there had been any problems on my wedding day, I didn’t know it. She picked up last minute items, came up with solutions. She has a flair for creativity, and I let her go crazy at it. It was the best thing I could have ever done because the photos were breathtaking. She can handle the gamut of brides. I was a slacker bride and she kept me in check along with budget updates every month. By the time the wedding came around I did not stress. I was overwhelmed by how beautiful she and her team had set up the venue. I was only able to enjoy myself and the party was exactly how I’d pictured it. I cannot stop saying great things about Exclusive Island Wedding. Let Kim do the planning and you will have the same experience. I would most definitely recommend her services. She surpassed any expectations I had for my wedding.
