Congratulations on your engagement! Life doesn’t stand still just because you are planning a wedding. Your wedding day will soon arrive. Islands Weddings and Events would be honored to help you plan and celebrate your wedding!
The time between your engagement and saying, "I do" can be stressful, but it certainly doesn't need to be. Phone calls, e-mails, meetings, decisions, arrangements, and expenses involved in planning can leave a couple (and perhaps others helping to plan the wedding) feeling stressed, taking away from the magic of the big day and the ceremony that celebrates the power of their love.
The advantage of hiring a wedding planner and day of coordinator is it helps couples feel assured that with proper prior planning, they are comfortable with the plan; vendors have been chosen and are a good fit; we can save you time and effort so you can let go of thinking of details and be present and focused on each other and present for the moment knowing all will be taken care of.
We work closely with you to portray your unique relationship and personal style. Using your desires as a guide, we work with industry's top professionals to meet your budget for your dream wedding!
