Getting hair and makeup done was easy and I loved how it came out along with the matching hair clip! The bouquet of tropical flowers were amazing! Her pick of vendors we used were excellent and I wouldn’t have changed anything!
We really enjoyed working with Keith. His energy and direction made each photo shoot flow really smoothly and he kept us moving along to stay on time. The few sneak peak photos were stunning. He has a great eye and took over 500 final photos for us and sent in a very timely manner. We will cherish these forever!
I would not have been able to pull this together on my own. You have a great turn key system down with great vendors that really hit all the points a bride is looking for.
We both thank you and would highly recommend if you’re considering eloping to Kauai!

My now wife and I wanted a small and intimate wedding, and Veronika was extremely helpful with recommendations and giving us guidance (ceremony site, type of floral, arch, and even live music) and was also very flexible given the ever-changing guidance due to the pandemic. Since this was a destination wedding and we had never been to Kauai before, naturally we had a lot of questions throughout the months. Veronika always made time for us to address all of our questions and put our mind at ease. We knew we were in safe hands with Veronika. As our wedding approached, Veronika and her team made sure everything was taken care of and we had everything we needed prior to our arrival. She even took the time to take us to the ceremony site the day before to show us around. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful ceremony so big thank you to Veronika and her wonderful vendors! Everything turned out perfect and exceeded all of our expectations! Our photographer Harneet was also amazing and so talented.

Thank you Veronika and your team again for making one of the most important days of our lives so perfect!

Veronika and Christy put together an amazing wedding ceremony for us and our family - we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding day! They made the entire process easy from the very beginning, detailing out ...
all the different options for our ceremony and making helpful suggestions (that we honestly needed!). Veronika made time for us in the months and weeks leading up to the wedding and was always available to chat over the phone and was attentive to our emails. Beyond just the wedding, she gave us great suggestions for where to stay and what to do while in Kauai (as an aside - Princeville might be the most amazing suburb I’ve ever been to in my life). We chose to have our wedding at the Princeville golf course and the decorations and ceremony looked amazing and went incredibly smoothly, thanks to Veronika and her team. We also had Harneet as our photographer and he did an awesome job on directing us during our pre- and post- wedding ceremony pictures - it was definitely worth it for us to book the additional hour of photography since we had photos on the golf course and the beach (which required extra time) and both sets of photos came out better than we could have imagined. Overall, we would highly recommend Veronika, Christy, Harneet and their entire team of vendors at Ali’i Kauai Weddings!

My dream wedding came true and Ali’i Kauai Weddings made it happen, despite the pandemic. About a week before our travel date in December, Kauai enacted the most strict COVID 19 lockdown in the country. Travelers, even with negative COVID tes...
t results, had to stay in quarantine at 1 of 3 approved “bubble” hotels...and wear tracking bracelets to prove it! Luckily one of the bubble hotels had 450 acres and ocean view, although no beach access. Veronika and her team switched from our original beach plan and traveled to the opposite side of the island to accommodate us at our quarantine. She even negotiated with our hotel to waive on site event fees and then found a makeup artist who was willing to work with me safely in the open air of the hotel lanai. The wedding day turned out perfectly. Everyone was the nicest and we had a lot of space to socially distance outdoors at the gorgeous 15th hole of the hotel golf course. Best of all, the photographer took the most outstanding photos to record it all. I was overall very pleased with Ali’i Kauai Weddings for flexibility, good coordination, and quality service from all their vendors.

up doing an essential package at sunset in January. Throughout the entire process, Jessica was always responsive, no matter what day I emailed her.
The day of our wedding was exactly what we wanted: perfect and low key. Crystal did my makeup and make; she was very easy to get along with. Crystal joined in the conversation and laughter with my girlfriends and I while working. I was over the moon with how she did my hair and make up.
The only hitch in the days, was that my parents were unable to make it to Kauai. Jessica, however, came to the rescue. She was able to find a videographer, Joel, with less than 24 hours’ notice. Our day of wedding coordinator, Hailey, was wonderful. She talked to everyone and helped where needed. She took the stress out of the day and helped make it fun. Our officiant, Kahu Chuck, was amazing. Despite never meeting us and only talking with my husband and I in separate conversations, he put together an amazing ceremony that was full of love and laughter.
Harneet was our photographer. Once the ceremony was over, he quickly got to work getting our group shots and photos of my husband and I. Within a few days, we received the sneak peek photos. They exceeded our expectations! We can’t wait to see the remainder. Joel, the videographer, was fun to work with and while we haven’t received the video yet, we know it will be beautiful.

I live in Portland, Oregon, and was able to plan my entire wedding via emails and phonecalls with Veronika. She allowed me to bug her at any time, with all sorts of questions! She stayed ahead of every detail, and had perfect answers for each question I asked, including questions about the impending rainy weather as our wedding got closer!! Obviously she could not control this aspect of the day (....I was so used to her having absolutely everything else 100% under control, I almost expected her to fix the weather too!). Veronika took the time to write to me, and encouraged me to focus on the love that the day would bring, and to understand that everything would fall into place. She went as far as to tell me that in Hawaii, the rain is seen as a blessing for prosperity, which helped changed my entire attitude. Her kindness meant so much to me, I wasn't expecting emotional support over and above all of the logistical support she provided when planning the wedding, yet she didn't hesitate to provide it! Despite a few drops of rain, the entire day was absolute perfection. We also ended up receiving the most incredible photos because of the lighting!
Veronika handled everything, from location selection to help with the marriage license, photography, videography, vows, rehearsal, flowers, suggestions for accommodations, on and on and on. I honestly feel as though I hardly did a thing to plan this wedding; I just showed up and enjoyed the wedding of my dreams. Friends and family were so surprised at how stress-free everything was for me; whenever anyone asked how the wedding planning was going, I HONESTLY said each time that it was so super easy. We kept it small and didn't stress the small things, which helped, but it was truly Veronika who allowed the day to approach with ease and confidence that everything would be amazing.

With regards to the wedding itself, she went above and beyond finding us a great last minute location for the first look.

Deco at the ceremony and reception was very nice and just like what we had asked for.
She was very accommodating!!! Our banks had issues communicating for the payment and she trusted me and did not put any pressure on us during our honeymoon to get this sorted out. I think this just goes to prove what kind of person you are dealing with!
I would not hesitate to recommend Ali'i Kauai Weddings, in fact, I encourage you to do business with them. You won't regret it.

ly zero complaints, and were so grateful for everything she did for us. We live in California and had never been to Kauai so we really needed someone who would step up and get to know us well so they could make well-informed decisions on our behalf, and Veronika exceeded those expectations tenfold. Her recommendations for the florist, decor, arrangements, even attire all turned out to be perfect! On the day of our ceremony, she helped calm me down when I got the jitters and when my hair got ruined from the humidity, she was sweet enough to lend me her hair clip and quickly did a makeshift updo so I wouldn't feel like my pictures were ruined. It may seem like a small gesture but, on my wedding day, it meant THE WORLD to me. I truly care for her even with the small amount of time I spent with her on the island. She is a gem and she found her calling in wedding planning as she really knows how to effectively put together a gorgeous, seamless wedding. I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend Alii Kauai, as does my husband.

As the process goes on, I realize how stressful it could be for such a small wedding of just 6 of us, then I asked her if she could take care of the whole thing. Next day, I had the officiant and the make-up artist confirmed! Veronika is always on top on getting back to me. The whole process moved on quickly and smoothly. She had so much great ideas and always had the best resource. She had a large selection from the bouquets to the make up style. We confirmed the bouquet, my flower crown, the flower circle on the beach and the table set up through emails. We met the day before the wedding and went through the schedule. On the big day, my make up, hair and bouquet were so dreamy, far exceed my expectation. The wedding set up was astonishing. every details were more than perfect. It was definitely the dream wedding I've always wanted. I can't thank her enough to help us making our (well, basically my) dream came true. After the ceremony, we went to the dinner. The view was breath taking, the table set up was lovely and the food was absolutely delicious, far better than the fine dinning in St. Regis. Both our parents are asian and extremely picky when comes to food. They just love the food and finished every courses, The cake was amazing.

We were able to plan mostly everything from flowers to the musician to our marriage license appointment through emails, which she was very quick to respond to even with the 3 hour time difference (I'm in CA). We had 2 or 3 phone calls throughout the planning process, which were very efficient and helpful. She made the entire planning process so easy and stress free, it was great!
Then we got to the island, and somehow she got even greater! When we arrived on Thursday she and I texted each other a little bit while my husband and I got situated on the island. She came to our condo that evening to meet us face to face and finalize last minute details, like transportation and directions to the ceremony site and to go over the schedule for the afternoon one more time.
Our wedding day was an absolute dream. I was able to relax the whole morning and arrive to the ceremony totally prepared and able to focus completely on marrying the man of my dreams thanks to Veronika's care. After the ceremony and pictures onsite, she sent us off with our photographer (her awesome husband) for a couple hour long photo tour of the North Shore. She met up with us at our final location to make sure all had gone well and that we were pleased.
And it didn't stop there! Veronika checked in with us periodically through text or phone call (but not too much) while we were on the island to make sure we were doing well, that we were having a great time, and to see if we needed any recommendations or advice. She was so warm and inviting , full of Aloha, helpful and knowledgeable, and easy to fall into conversation with.

now husband, making the decision to choose Ali'i Kauai Weddings as my planner was the best wedding decision I made!
I cannot begin to explain how absolutely amazing Veronika was throughout my entire engagement and wedding planning process. She is truly a godsend! My husband and I have visited Kauai multiple times and knew there is not a more magical place in the world to get married than Kauai. Once we were engaged, I began looking at reviews of multiple wedding planners on the island of Kauai. After hours of searching and reading of reviews, I knew Ali'i Kauai was the one for me.
I made contact and very quickly received a message from Veronika congratulating me and explaining the process. I was worried about how I was going to plan a destination wedding as there is so much more involved than what you think initially. After my first phone call with Veronika, she melted all those worries away. She listened to me and asked tons of question to see my vision and she turned it into a reality. She was so patient with my constantly changing ideas and extremely supportive. I cannot tell you how on top of everything she is. Throughout the entire process, she was attentive, organized and resourceful. She has years of wedding planning experience and therefore her vendor recommendations were all shockingly impressive. They all blew me out of the water with their work. Everything turned out perfect. It was all so breathtakingly beautiful! We had several vendors (flowers, tents, chairs, catering, photographer, musician, etc.) and it was so good to be able to enjoy my wedding week and not be the go-to person for all of these people.
My wedding day was so smooth and relaxing, Veronika took care of EVERYTHING. All I had to do was sip mimosas, be pampered and enjoy the day. It scares me to think how I would have managed coordinating all of those things by myself, I would have been so worried trying to take care of all of that and been unable to really enjoy one of the most important days of my life. At the end of the day, I said to my Maid of Honor, "can you believe that nothing went wrong? That doesn't happen!" She smiled and said, "a few things happened, but Veronika took care of them all without people knowing." Example: I had asked one of my guests to bring cake plates. Turns out, they got in a hurry and left them in their hotel! This wasn't discovered until dinner was being served to guests. Apparently, Veronika ran inside and hand-washed all of the appetizer plates so they could be used for the cake! Here I was thinking, "wow! How did my guest find cake plates that matched the rest of the dinnerware so well!" That is just one small example of the type of wedding planner Veronika is; AN EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONAL.
I could go on and on about Veronika and her team! I have never been so impressed with a company. Veronika, thank you so much for creating and delivering the most magical and beautiful wedding day! I couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect wedding. You are the kindest, most genuine, and one of the most beautiful people inside and out that I have ever had the opportunity of meeting. Thank you for planning my wedding as if it were your very own. I am forever grateful for you and your team.

The videographer, Joel, orchestrated the perfect video that we will cherish forever. He used extra tools including a drone to capture some amazing shots of the surrounding beach and mountains. Our on site coordinator, Veronika, was so sweet and on point with making sure I looked great and was ready to "take the plunge". She even captured one of my absolute favorite photos on her phone so we could have a few preview shots while waiting for the pro pix. All around the quality of our experience and each vendor deserves a thousand stars! The fact that all we really had to do was show up and focus on exchanging vows, was something that felt rare and special when it comes to wedding planning experiences. Thank you so much, Ali'i Kauai Weddings for creating a perfect ceremony for us that we will remember fondly forever!

Destination weddings can be scary because most of the details are handled over the phone, and you get what you get. With Ali'i Kauai, you don't have to worry. Jessica was amazing-- AMAZING-- to work with. We told her what we wanted and asked...
about things we didn't know about, and she handled it all. From the flowers to the reception location, they took care of it all. We didn't have a dream wedding going into this; we just wanted something that went smoothly and suited our personalities. Ali'i Kauai gave us the dream wedding we didn't know was possible.
The hair and make up person Jessica recommended (I think her name was Crystal) did such a fantastic job that my wife still had a beautiful updo the day after the wedding. Her makeup was flawless; it was natural but radiant and perfect for our beach wedding. When she walked out of the room after getting done up, I thought... there was no way this beautiful woman was going to be my wife.
We ordered a hairpiece for the bride well before we went to the island. While we were there, we decided it would be great to have pictures taken at Hanalei Pier before we went to Tunnels Beach for the ceremony. Without us asking, Veronika realized we would want the plumeria in our photos, so she drove to our hotel, missed us, and met us at the pier-- just so my wife would have more beautiful photos. It meant so much to us that she went out of her way to make everything as perfect as possible.
Our wedding... was amazing. But having them arrange everything and guide us through it all was a huge part of what made it great. Ali'i Kauai gave us a wedding that we still talk about. I'm glad that when we think about our wedding, they were part of it.

i Kauai wedding planners. Within four days in Hawaii, Jessica had arranged for us a beach-side ceremony complete with photographer, videographer, people to help me with hair and makeup, and the most amazing officiant, Kauilani. We requested that our ceremony include traditional Hawaiian wedding rituals and wow - did they deliver! Kauilani included every Hawaiian ritual we had heard of and many more and created an unmatchably most moving, soulful, personal wedding ceremony for us. Every vendor was kind and personable and gave us lots of love. After the often stressful, certainly expensive and time consuming planning that went into our fantastic wedding in NYC for 150 family and friends, our impromptu private wedding on the beach on our own honeymoon was utterly relaxed and easy and almost unbearably romantic. I absolutely recommend Jessica and Alii Kauai weddings!

Coordinating from Northern California was not ideal; Veronika was beyond helpful with her recommendations and knowledge of vendors.
During Rehearsal and wedding, Veronik...

I kept telling her throughout the night that if there were any hiccups, I didn't know about it :).
our wedding was flawless and all due to Veronika!!

person. Jessica of Ali'l Kauai Weddings exceeded my expectations!
I called several wedding planners on the island of Kauai before I chose Jessica. I had several reassuring and comforting telephone conversations with her and knew she was the one I wanted to work with. She is extremely experienced and has an excellent staff and group of vendors whom she works with to plan the most beautiful, perfect wedding.
Jessica handles all the aspects of planning a wedding from helping with marriage certificates to venues to commitment ceremonies and renewal of vows (whether it be at a beach or any where on the island), florists, photographers, hair and make-up needs, etc.!
Jessica was so patient and understanding as I called and emailed her frequently. She was always prompt in responding (often the very same day). She also made arrangements for me to communicate with a florist for a custom bouquet I wanted. She helped us choose the beach we were going to have our ceremony take place, even setting the time so that we would have the perfect sunset!
As the time got closer to our special day and we were coming all the way from Florida to Kauai, she provided me with a very nice woman to press my wedding dress upon our arrival. Jessica contacted me the day I arrived and she was in contact with me every day until the ceremony. The day of the ceremony was perfect!
I had no concerns and I was not nervous about anything we had planned. I had complete confidence in Jessica. I was able to enjoy the entire day and be excited instead of being worried or concerned if everything was going to turn out the way we wanted it. Jessica took all those concerns away!
Our day was beautiful and we have Ali'i Kauai Weddings , Jessica and her staff to thank! I would highly recommend her and her staff.
Thank you for making our day so special!

at our wedding went above and beyond our expectations. Our minister Kelvin Ho performed a very memorable and relaxed ceremony that not only made us feel calm but brought in elements from the hawaiian culture which we were really happy with. Both our videographer Joel Guy and our photographer Jonathon Moeller were very professional, had easy going personalities and are very talented. They each captured special moments during our wedding day. Our musician, Kelii Kanealii, was super sweet too, he played the ukulele while singing our wedding songs and even learned a new song for us. I was impressed with his singing and the positive vibe he exuded. Even though Jessica was unable to make it to our wedding Veronika, another wedding planner at Alii Kauai Weddings was with us throughout the day. She brought me my bouquet and flower hair clip to our home and was waiting for us at Tunnels Beach to be by our side throughout the ceremony. My husband and I are very happy with how well are special day played out and with each and every person who made it happen.

The ukulele player was the best. He sings beautifully and takes requests - he really made the ceremony and experience feel Hawaiian. Everything went so smoothly from the moment we booked with Alii Kauai to the last photo. If you're looking for an effortless wedding planning experience, you're in good hands. Jessica takes care of as little or as many details you'd like, all with cheerful, reliable skill. No complaints, no headaches, only an elegant and relaxed day.

We exchanged emails talked on the phone for months leading up to the wedding. Jessica was so patient and helpful with every decision we made. We took a vacation in Kauai and met her 1 year prior to our wedding and I was really moved by how sweet and caring she is. And she was very patient with my millions of questions and even when I changed my mind about something. Everyone at our wedding had an absolutely amazing time and we still have people talking about it being the best wedding they have ever been too. This is all due to Jessica!
