Becky Ringler at Simple Kona Beach Weddings was amazing! Becky helped my (now) husband and I plan a wedding for our 25 guests in Kona, HI, while we were living in Maryland. We had family travel from Maryland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand and our wedding day couldn't have gone any smoother or been any more fun -- and we owe that all to Becky. Even with a simple wedding -- in the months leading up to the big day, we still had plenty of things to plan for and remember -- and Becky helped us with everything!! Then, on our special day, Becky made everything look beautiful and run smoothly - both at the Old Airport Beach and at the Daylight Mind Café, where we had dinner and danced the night away. I absolutely recommend Becky - she will think of everything and make sure that the bride, groom, and family are prepared, happy and having a wonderful time. She is a true expert and a kind and thoughtful person. I wish her the best and when my husband and I renew our vows -- I will definitely call on Becky's services again - if she will have us :)
Becky was wonderful!!! We found her online and immediately felt confident and calm about everything! She is so sweet, ALWAYS there for any questions or communication! She took care of everything, there was NO stress!! Only the weather and she helped us change everything. I looked at a lot of elopement packages and officiants and hardly any of them allowed personalization or outside photography. Becky was the opposite! Whatever we wanted, she worked to make it happen. 5 stars for sure!!!
Our wedding could not have been more perfect!! The ceremony was exactly what we wanted....simple, beautiful and a touch of Hawaiian! Becky made everything so easy...from the recommendations on the locations, leis, restaurants, etc and her husband was a fantastic photographer who took over 200+ pictures for us! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
My NOW husband and I found Becky (SimpleKonaBeachWeddings) on line. After reading the reviews and looking at the posted pictures, we felt this might be the venue for us. We are both in our early 70's and wanted a unique experience, a simple but meaningful wedding ceremony. Becky was always professional and timely in her response to our questions. Just speaking with her on the phone was reassuring that she would be reliable and accommodating. Every email was answered quickly. After meeting her on The Big Island of Hawaii to select our actual spot, we knew we had made the right decision. Our sunset wedding was simply beautiful and the start of a new life together. A unique memory of the special day we envisioned. There is NO doubt that Becky and her husband, Matt, would be the right choice.
Becky was absolutely fantastic. We celebrated our 25th anniversary in August and she was so helpful in suggesting various options and went over and above to make sure that every detail was absolutely perfect. She even found a ukulele for a surprise song. She has such an overwhelmingly sincere and caring personality that translates into her personalized and heart felt ceremony. A special shout out to Becky's husband, Matt, who is her equal in personality and took some great shots with our phones. - Deanna and Humberto
I highly recommend Becky, she was awesome!! She helped my husband and I plan and officiated our 13yr vow renewal. Everything was just how we envisioned it to be. The beach sunset setting was gorgeous that she picked out for us. The ceremony that she performed for us was very special, heartfelt and genuine. She was so sweet and easy to work with as well as her husband. She took care of everything!!! She really does make it "Simple". Becky and Simple Kona Beach Weddings created a memory that we will always treasure. Thank you again for our wonderful day!
Just stop looking now, you've found your wedding planner. Becky was nothing short of amazing and very accommodating. She was professional, friendly, organized, and made us feel comfortable with our choice from day 1 from over 6000 miles away. Having never been to HI, we didnt know what to expect but knew what we wanted and she provided that and then some!! She takes care of all the details, planning, permits, etc. I can not say enough how stress free it was knowing we had her on our side taking care of the details. We had to answer a few question, pick out our exact location once we got to Hawaii, and from there it was just show up and get married! She provides an amazing ceremony that you will remember forever. You will not find a better value, hands down. Becky thank you and your husband for all your hard work - you're both amazing!
My wife and I were on Kona to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary and decided to renew our wedding vows. Becky was so knowledgeable and helpful. She responded quickly to all questions, met with us a few days before our ceremony to help us cho0se just the right spot, and had everything set up and ready to go when we arrived at the beach. The whole process was made easy by Becky and our event was something we will always remember fondly. If you are considering a wedding or vowel renewal you really need to contact Becky and give Simple Kona Beach Weddings a chance. Mahalo Becky, and aloha!
Becky is awesome! From our first conversation to our special day Becky was wonderful. If your looking to get married in Hawaii and want a stress free wedding Becky is your girl. We had to leave the island before our wedding due to a family emergency our loved one was stable and wanted us to go back to get married called Becky to see if our day was still available and she told me she had a feeling we would be back. We can't thank her enough for everything, she made our day so very special even with everything that had happened. Thank you Becky Kevin & Denise Van Dyke 7-7-17
Highly recommend Beckys Simple Kona Weddings! Awesome from the first contact all the way through to the end of our wedding. Becky did a super wedding for us!!!! Beautiful Hawaiin wedding! Couldn't ask for anything better!!! Thanks Becky!!💏🌴💏🌴💏🌴
Becky was awesome! As an out of state couple we were very nervous about getting everything coordinated and also trusting someone we had never met to do a good job. Becky rose to the occasion and made the experience stress free and easy! The ceremony was beautiful and tailored to our unique situation. Would definitely recommend Simple Kona Beach Weddings to others!
Becky was absolutely amazing! She helped me with all the little details that go into planning a wedding that you don't even think about until your mid-process. We had a small intimate family wedding of 12 and she ensured everything ran smoothly and our family said it was the most beautiful ceremony they had attended. The special Hawaiian elements were very cool. I can't say enough about her - book today and you won't regret it!
We had such a perfect wedding! Not only did Becky execute the ceremony flawlessly, her care, attention to detail, planning, resources and her and her husband's warmth made it incredibly simple and beautiful. Becky and her husband met with us a few days in advance to choose the top 3 spots on the beach for our sunset wedding. They gave both of us warm hugs, answered all of our questions to go through it in ou heads, and made excellent recommendations for the ceremony and entire trip (Splashers was so fun with incredible live Hawaiian music starting at 4pm and amazing drinks & food). The day before the ceremony I received a text message from Becky wishing me a happy day before my wedding! She also sent a text the day of confirming location setup, where to be and when, and letting me know she's there if we need to reach out with questions. Everything was in place and ready when we arrived. Becky greeted us with hugs and walked with us to the location. From there, everything was magical. We started with the conch shell tribute where Becky blew in each direction. I started crying right away. We had a slightly customized vow exchange that was so beautiful there wasn't a dry eye in sight. Our bride and groom leis were perfect, the ring blessing was really cool. The act of pouring the water from the ring blessing and throwing the lava rock wrapped in Ti Leaf into the ocean during the sunset was even cooler and we got amazing photos of it thanks to her husband. In fact, we walked away with nearly 300 amazing photos on my husband's iPhone from many different angles and viewpoints. The heart shaped flowers in the sand were flawless, as was the bouquet. To top it off, the ukelele musicians were incredible and equally warm and professional! The photographer was great too. I received 10 teaser pics that are amazing. My only regret was that we didn't get more shots with each of our guests and almost forgot to take a group shot. So please take my advice and plan the shots you want ahead of time, because your mind will be scattered following the ceremony and you won't think of it! Also, we were running late and even if we were late, it wouldn't have been a big deal, so don't stress! Just after the ceremony, there was a light sprinkle and rainbow, as if it was planned! Thank you for my beautiful day. I highly recommend Simple Kona Beach Weddings.
Becky's professionalism, attention to detail and timeliness made it an extraordinary worry free experience. If you're a couple concerned about booking a wedding so far away, Becky took all this anxiety away by communicating every step and promptly answering any concern or question in a very welcoming way. I truly appreciated her flexibility, arranging everything and conducting a stunning ceremony. I highly recommend her services.
Our experience with Simple Kona Beach Weddings was wonderful. From the beginning we felt very confident that we had made the right choice for our wedding planning. Becky was amazing, she made sure that every detail was perfect for our wedding day and made the planning a stress-free process. Becky and Matt made our wedding day unique and very special and we were so pleased with all the services we received. They also provided us with great recommendations for photographers for the wedding and places to visit during our time on the Big Island.
When we decided to elope in Kona last month, we found Simple Kona Beach Weddings online and gave them a call. Best idea ever! Becky was incredible and took care of every last detail from the moment we first spoke. She suggested a stunning venue with a lovely beach, lava and beautiful trees. There was hardly another soul on the beach by the time our ceremony started just before sunset. Becky is friendly, and attentive. She set up the ceremony with a lovely circle of orchids and plumerias that smelled divine. She was also able to adapt quickly to our precocious toddler who wasn't sure what all the fuss was about. All of Becky's recommendations were fantastic, from the photographer to the hair stylist. Her husband, Matt, who is an extraordinary chef prepared a spectacular beach picnic for us prior to the wedding. It is hard to overstate how good the food was. We highly recommend Becky at Simple Kona Beach Weddings!
10 stars +++++! Hands down - choosing Simple Kona Beach Weddings to assist with your wedding will be the absolute best decision you'll make! We can't even begin to express our appreciation on how wonderful and special they made our wedding! Simple Kona Beach Weddings staff are friendly, personable, and just overall genuine people who believe in helping couples with their magical day. From the bottom of our Alaskan hearts, a big hug and thank you to Becky and Matt for making our destination wedding exactly what we wanted and more!! Aloha! J and D
We could not have been more pleased with the wedding Becky made possible for us. In short, it was more than I could have imagined. We had an incredibly simple wedding, and now I wish we had a bit more planned because I'd love to have been able to work with her even more closely. Our ceremony was even better than we could have imagined, in great part due to Becky's genuine spirit, thoughtful listening and incredible energy. She not only advised us on how to navigate the State of Hawaii system for licensing, but she found us a perfect spot, worked with us on timing so we got the best light for pictures, arranged gorgeous flowers and her husband was an absolute dream to have on hand as causal photographer. I would also add that Becky was remarkably responsive and accommodating, and incredibly honest and open about what she thought would, and more importantly, would not work. We also took her up on a handful of local recommendations and they were each flawless. I would wholeheartedly recommend Simple Kona Beach Weddings. Thank you Becky!
My husband and I were very pleased with Becky. She was wonderful with all the details and made sure they were incorporated in the ceremony. We even had a hiccup that was out of her control and she immediately made us feel at ease with other options. Those options ended up being better then originally planned. Everything was stress free with her and the help of her husband Matt :-) If you are looking for someone with attention to detail and will make your dream wedding come true please, put her at the top of your list!
We wanted a simple beautiful wedding and that's exactly what we got. Becky was very accommodating and reliable. Highly recommend Simple Kona Beach Weddings!
Becky is truly the best wedding planner in Hawaii! She definitely made the wedding planning process and wedding day stress free and Beautifu! We were so blessed to have had her help planning our special day. Everything was beautiful and we received so many compliments and it was all because Becky put everything together perfectly. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding planner, she knows what she is doing! She picked out the perfect place for us to get married, so beautiful and exactly what we were looking for, that Special piece of Hawaii! I would definitely recommend her to anyone, and if I had to rate her from 1 to 10...it would be a 100! Whenever we needed something or had a question, she always was responsive and quick! She was always professional and even brought the vendors to us! She even recommend restaurants for us while we were in Hawaii. I was truly amazed by that. She understood our vision and it turned out beautifully! Thank you so much again and I would highly recommend her to any engaged couple!
We were organising multiple destination weddings from Australia, and it is always a bit daunting when you have to book photographers and other things without being able to meet or get to know the people you are going to be working with and without having any recommendations other than "Reviews" you don't really know what you are getting ....But From the moment I emailed "Simple Kona Beach Weddings" and started the correspondence with Becky I felt right at home. Becky suggested the perfect spot for us to get married right from the first email and seemed to understand exactly what we wanted, everything felt so comfortable and easy that we knew we had made the right choice. Becky always returned emails quickly and by the time we finally met we felt like we were old friends. The day was perfect, and the ceremony that Becky performed for us was very touching . One of the photographers that Becky suggested (that we chose) "Mark Hinwood" was exceptional and captured the day perfectly. Becky and her husband Matt made us feel like family and made the day so special. Thank You so much Becky and Matt for the wonderful memories you helped us create and for celebrating with us xx
We couldn't have found a more perfect person as Becky (and her husband Matt) to plan and officiate our small, simple beach wedding. With booking our wedding from Canada, the love, time and effort she put into the details leading up to the big day put our minds at ease and let us let go of any worries and just focus on the excitement of getting married! We're now celebrating our 1 year anniversary at the end of April :) We will be recommending Simple Kona beach weddings to all our family and friends who are getting married! Thank you Becky and Matt! <3 Jenny & James Cairns
Becky Ringler is an amazing wedding planner! I found her site online, which made me a little nervous, entrusting such a special day to someone I hadn't met. However, she exceeded my expectations in every way. Although we were having a small wedding in Hawaii, I did not want it to have the generic feel and cost of resort wedding packages. She made it so special and really elegant. Nothing cheesy about it. We had a lot of kids at the wedding, whom she incorporated into the ceremony, at my request, and helped us hire childcare of during the reception. She is so intuitive and will almost understand your vision better than you. She is detail oriented and goes the extra mile, such as buying leis for my parents for their arrival since she was at the flower market anyway, recommending restaurants, etc. Her delightful husband is a chef, and I feel they both helped guide the food at the reception. I even had a guest say that they just expect the food at weddings to be bad, but it was exceptional. She decorated a beautiful arch with tropical flowers for us, I gave her recommendations for my bouquet and she made one that was perfect. Getting married in Hawaii with the laid back attitude of the island is wonderful, but that makes planning and coordinating difficult at times. After talking to Becky a couple of times, I guessed, accurately, that she had lived and worked in Manhattan and San Francisco in the past, as she is efficient and persistent with vendors while always being gracious. She was so on top of things, I was never nervous about things not going well. I live in the Bay Area and I feel that the wedding she coordinated would have cost more and taken more effort here. Multiple guests have come to me saying the wedding was so special and beautiful, down to the last detail. I agree. I was so relaxed and could enjoy the festivities. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
It was perfect! Becky contacted me several times prior to our holiday to pre-plan everything from location to ceremony content to choice of leis. She offered very personal service and made us feel special every step of the way in our vow renewal. The location was incredible and the pictures are stunning. The ceremony was elegant but not stuffy - she included our children which made it very meaningful for us. There was no stress in this process at all. She is a sweet and lovely lady and I would recommend Simple Kona Beach Weddings to everyone looking to renew their vows. Both Becky and her husband took many pictures for us throughout our time on the beach and in no way did we feel rushed once the ceremony was over. Her husband Matt was terrific and they made it fun as well as special for my husband and I, our children, nephew, and our friends. Thank you Becky for helping us celebrate our 20 years of marriage.
