Selecting Parasol Events as our coordinators was the single best decision we made for our wedding.
I decided to hire a wedding planner for several reasons: my free time is limited, this was a semi-destination wedding, and I had a very vague vision on what the Big Day would be like. I phone interviewed several “top” wedding coordinators on the island. When speaking with Laura, it was obvious that her experiences and breadth of knowledge of the wedding industry would not only lower the stress of wedding planning, but will actually make this a fun process!
Parasol Events helped make the entire wedding planning process creative, enjoyable, individualized, and meaningful. Both Laura and Jessica were extremely professional, organized, timely, and personable. They also collaborated well together at helping me figure out what I wanted. Often times, the service with Parasol Events was so exceptionally outstanding that I felt that I was their only client! For example, when my fiancé and I wanted to learn a choreographed wedding couples’ hula dance to surprise our guests. Laura and Jessica found a self-teaching DVD for my fiancé to learn while in Afghanistan and myself to learn in the East Coast, then they organized a dance lesson a week before the wedding (which required coordination of an instructor and studio) so we can practice together in Hawaii. It was an extremely amusing idea, and our guests were tickled to see us pull it off!
Also, should anything go wrong, you will be so grateful to have Parasol Events on your side. In short, a month prior to our wedding date, the wedding venue we reserved cancelled. Within 48 hours, I had a list of venues that were available on our wedding date and able to accommodate our wedding size, and list of pros/cons. We were able to transform a nightmare situation into an even more gorgeous wedding than I could imagine. For many reasons, I give Parasol Events the highest recommendations possible!
