You simply will not find a Hawaii weddings website
that uses more top wedding professionals
who create higher quality services and products
at more affordable prices!
Who We Are
We are a "Ohana" or family of Hawaii wedding professionals who share a spirit of Aloha in providing you, the best Hawaiian beach wedding experience . We share a dedication to excellence in creating the absolutely highest quality services and products at the most affordable prices for our clients.
Each selected member of our Ohana is a recognized top-tier professional in his/her own right and specialty, providing the highest quality services to top hotels, venues, and Hawaii "locals", most for well over 20-30+ years.
We work as a practiced group who'll make your wedding experience a happy, joyful, and memorable experience. When we perform as a group, we harmonize beautifully and create "music" like no other. We're kind of like a "Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young" of Hawaii weddings" LOL.
We love what we do, we enjoy working together performing our services, and you'll enjoy having us be part of your wedding!
Why We Are Who We Are
The destination wedding market has always lacked the level of high quality professional services and products created for our "local" wedding clients simply because, "tourist" weddings have always been either, a entry level job, a place for part-timers, housewives, college students, etc., or the place for those who couldn't make it on their own in the "big leagues" of local clients. And nowadays, with the Internet, anybody can do weddings.
Knowing this, we created AHW so, we could provide the same high quality services and products we offered individually to our "locals" except, priced for simple destination beach weddings.
It's a simple premise. To offer the highest quality professional services and products from individually selected top vendors, at the most reasonable prices.
What We Do...
We concentrate on core ceremony services i.e. officiates/ministers, photography, videography, musicians, hair & make-up, Hawaiian flower lei, and other ceremony services.
We write everything for our website! It's all based upon real, everyday wedding experience. In may be not be "slick" and polished but, it's real!
Give you straight talk and answers i.e. if we disagree or think something won't work or a bad idea or if your money would be better spent on something better or saving it, we'll tell you straight and simple.
We provide all the services you'll need for your Hawaii wedding ceremony and many reception services as well.
We offer the best most competitive prices for the highest quality services.
Give you the easiest way to plan and reserve your wedding, you'll have your wedding set in no-time!
Work as a "all star team", assembled to ensure that you have the absolute best Hawaii wedding day experience.
Relieve you of all the stress in planning your destination wedding.
Suggest to the best locations for your ceremony based upon your specific needs, not ours.
Offer more, from the very best Hawaii wedding professionals at a better price and value than you could get anywhere else.
Share our insight based upon our many years of Hawaii wedding experience, so you'll avoid costly mistakes and disappointment.
Reserve and coordinate all the services we provide on one contract for a no-worries, hassle free, fun and memorable Hawaiian wedding day. All you have to do is show up with your marriage license!
What We Don't Do and Aren't...
We don't try to do and offer everything or be all things to all people. We prefer to do just a few things, really, really well.
We are not anything other than what we say we are. There's two websites who took a lot of what we say and how we say it, changed a few words, flowered it up, copied some of our terms, and even went so far as to duplicate our package structure except, with far cheaper prices.
We don't make things up! We don't call our photographers "Certified" unless they really are. We don't say we use "top" people unless, they truly are. We don't say things about our business just because it sounds good or because some writer copied it from another website!
We don't try to "fake you out" or entice you with "free" stuff like a free cake in a box, free $10 Champagne, free $1.25 shell lei, free extra hour of photo time (really?) as a substitute for the important stuff and so we can pay the cheapest workers to do your wedding to make even more money because, cheap "free" stuff is cheaper!
Entice and fool you by saying you get a "free cake" or bottle of Champagne (cheapest available of course :) without telling you that, you just get it handed to you as you leave. You don't get to use it in your ceremony or get photos of you using it. What good is that? Unless, you rather have free cake and cheap alcohol instead real professional services and awesome photos and video! LOL
We don't try to book every wedding by offering the lowest prices for the most stuff and because of that, we're not for every couple.
We're not a high volume "tourist wedding" website. High quality and high volume are a oxymoron and contradictory. "Hawaii Weddings at Their Best", we'd rather not.
We're not a traditional coordinator/planner who needs to email you back and forth to be relevant and to charge you a "middle" person planner fee for our simple beach weddings.
Make the cheapest prices, have $95 weddings, cut corners, have the minister do the photos too, or use cheapie "tourist" wedding vendors.
Have ministers who decided they could make more money by taking photos and video while performing the ceremony (Really? Yup, we've seen it), musicians who work as waiters, kids making our bouquet and lei, Coordinators ( we don't use or need them) who basically stand there watching the professional work, etc.
We're not "off-beat" or "just a little different", goofy, freaky, fakey, panderers, fussy, ego-heads, insistent, or creepy in any way like some we know of. LOL.
Make things sound better then they are or tell you what you want to hear just so we can get your money. We'd rather pass on a job than agree to something that would be a problem.
We don't "stuff" our packages "no-value" or "pseudo" services and deceptive "freebies" just to make them look better.
We don't try to be all things to all people! We understand that some people just aren't interested in how or why we do it or what we know works.
We don't cancel you at the last minute for a bigger or higher paying job.
Use vendors who are low on quality and high on disappointment.
Substitute "real" professionals with college students, girl/boy friends, wives, sons, daughters, etc. or worse "double-up" on services i.e. minister or coordinator who also does the photos, etc. All of our people are top professionals in their own right who we bring together for your wedding.
We don't offer weddings on all islands simply because it doesn't work. We tried that. We only specialize on Oahu.
Questions and Answers
How can we tell that you're any better than other Hawaiian wedding websites?
Simply, it's what we show you on our website, what we say, our advice, our answers to your questions, and the timeliness of our responses. We may not tell you everything you want to hear but, we're going to tell you what you need to know, and we'll tell you what is best, in our opinion :)
Other than that the best clue is the quality of the photos because they are a good indication of the quality you can expect from all your other products and services. If a website pays good photographers, it means that they'll do the same for their other services and products. Just make sure you're not paying too much... there is a fair price and there are ridiculous prices! LOL.

Why do we cost less than a traditional wedding planner/coordinator?
We don't add wedding planner/coordinator "middle-man" fees to our beach ceremony packages and services. It's just an extra cost you don't need and it's not necessary.
Can you perform traditional wedding planner/coordinator services?
Yes, we can. If you need help with securing private ceremony or reception location as well as setting up decorations and coordinating any details you need attended too for that purpose, we suggest you hire the services of our Event Planner/Coordinator. Other than that, you don't need this service.
Why do we cost less than finding your own vendors?
Because our vendors are "anonymous", they are freed from paperwork, emails, phone calls, and most importantly from their standard prices and "reputations". Consequently, you pay a lower price than their "regular" clients. Check it out for yourself and see what top Hawaii wedding professionals charge their "regular" clients.
Can we select our own vendors and you do the planning?
No sorry, we don't work that way and we prefer not to to deal with outside people whom we don't know and who may have no interest in following what we suggest is best for your wedding.
Why we aren't as "cheap" as some Hawaii wedding tourist websites?
Simply, we aren't a traditional "tourist wedding" website. We use the same top vendors who our "locals" reserve for their own weddings. We simply will not use whom ever we can get, or lesser talented professionals, hobbyists, part-timers, college students, etc. who all are normally used by "tourist wedding" websites.
Do you have an office we can meet you at?
No sorry, we are totally Internet based. In this day and age, it's ridiculous and just bad business to have an office. Does "eBay" have stores for you to shop in? Heck no! Got an office, gotta pay rent (or mortgage), gotta do as many weddings as possible, gotta offer cheap prices and deceptive freebies, gotta cut corners, use the cheapest vendors, lose flexibility, and everything else that's bad because of "the office". And do you really want to spend time while on your vacation holiday because you have "check-in" or are required make your final payment at "the office"? We didn't think so! We've just seen too many wedding businesses who thought they were a big deal, open an office in Waikiki, and eventually get themselves into serious trouble. We're not ever going to jeopardize our clients, just to look cool!
Finally, in one of our client's own words... yeah, it's their own words exactly!
Thank you. You are very helpful. I am just trying to make sure everything is perfect and as you can imagine, it's pretty difficult from Australia - organizing a wedding in Hawaii! Having said that, since you have the experience and clearly I don't, I am just going to put my complete trust in you. I am sure you will do the best that you can.
I have been contacting places in Hawaii that advertise weddings for a few months now. You have been the fastest to respond and by far the most helpful. I have given your web address and copies of our correspondence to my travel agent here. She often has people asking her about weddings in Hawaii and she refers them to a company here in Australia that negotiate etc. with people in Hawaii.(At an incredibly expensive rate too). Your excellence has allowed me to show her that there is no need to refer people to an expensive company when they can do the work themselves! So, having said that, you now have the respect of my travel agent and she will be referring others to you.
I will be making my reservation payment shortly. - Amanda

Your wedding is not the time to learn this lesson.
