Don’t question it, hire them!

Where do we start?!? First, ABC is amazing. We love how they have all the different packages that accommodate all the different types of couples and what they need. We know whatever package we would have chosen, they would have delivered. We chose the basic coordination package because I had planned almost everything already by the time we hired them, for us we hired them as they took over two months out and most importantly, day of. We also added on the “site visit + final rental order + customized layout creation” as we were not going to see our venue till rehearsal day. They made the process seamless and we enjoyed every step of the way.

Second, JAMIE FRIGGEN DUFFIELD!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ABC is SO lucky to have her on their team and we are so so so so so so grateful she was assigned as our lead coordinator. I can not get over her process from start to finish from being assigned lead till now. She is so detail oriented, she is so sweet, she is just so on top of everything. She never made us feel like a bother if we needed to text her. If she could handle a task, she was more than happy to and so dang quick about it. As a bride who is very detail oriented myself, we thought I had it pretty well handled but WOW!!!!! Jamie thought of questions and things we would never think of. A couple weeks out rain was forecasted for our wedding day. She called us and discussed our options. Then she executed changing our rentals to accommodate if it does rain and made it very stress free.
She put out the inevitable wedding day fires so fast that we were never stressed. We truly can not say enough nice things about her.

Third, McKenzie the assistant coordinator was amazing as well. She handled the end of the night so seamlessly and we were not stressed about one single thing!!! All our belongings were packed up nicely and anything she was unsure about, she double checked on, which we greatly appreciated.

Our whole wedding was seamless and wonderful because we hired ABC, but 1,000,000% am so happy we were assigned Jamie. She’s a rockstar. Would rate her 1,000,000/10 lol.

Aloha Bridal Connections-highly recommended!

The entire team from Aloha Bridal Connections (ABC) is nothing but AMAZING! We worked mostly with Julie and were so happy with her. We had a vision for our wedding and she took it to the next level. She helped to solidify our ideas, she had direct contact with all of our vendors on a regular basis, kept us on track with our timelines, and pulled off an amazing event! Our wedding was very large (over 550 ppl) and it was super organized without a glitch thanks to the ABC team. Natalie and Sherry helped to keep our bridesmaids and groomsmen stay on cue the day of and handled intricate details for us. Our wedding was over a month ago and I still have people coming up to me talking about our wedding and saying that it's the best wedding they have ever been to; ABC is to thank for that. Julie is extremely knowledgeable and a whiz with spreadsheets. She had us super organized and ready to conquer any hurdles with suggestions and solutions. Everything turned out beautiful. We both highly recommend ABC for your wedding no matter what island you're getting married on.

ABC does it best!

It has been a month and a half since our wedding and we have been enjoying life as newlyweds! We could have not come this far if we didn’t have the help from the Aloha Bridal Connections (ABC) team. They have made our wedding planning process seem as easy and stress-free as possible, especially planning from the East Coast.
From our initial consultation call with Lauren, the owner of ABC, she was so kind in giving us all the information we needed to help us decide in choosing their team. Closer to our wedding, she would also follow-up with us to make sure all was going well.
Our lead coordinator, Keyah, was the best! It was such a pleasure planning with her! As organized and detailed she was, it helped us stay focused on how and what we wanted for our wedding. With her consistent follow-ups via emails/texts/monthly calls, suggestions on details, and compliments on our other vendors, it was great to have her knowledge, professionalism, and positive energy and vibes. We also appreciated the time she took to meet with us during the days we were on the island before the wedding. As for the wedding day, I had a little hiccup occur in which she helped me stay calm and focused. It means a lot to me that she cared how I felt not only then, but also during the whole day. Better yet, she also made sure to always ask during the year of planning how we felt.
As for the coordination team, Jamie and Mackenzie, they both went out of their way to make sure our ceremony and reception was set up according to plan and that everything ran as smoothly as possible. As much as we were enjoying our time during our reception, we appreciated the follow-ups from Mackenzie. It helped us make sure that we were still on track of things.
We can’t thank the ABC team enough for their time to help plan our special yet amazing day with us! Everyone was so great and are very detailed in their line of work. If you are from either from the islands, mainland, or even international and are planning your wedding in Hawaii, we highly recommend ABC to take part in your wedding!

Aloha Bridal Connections is absolutely one of our favorite coordination companies to work with! The entire planning process is so smooth leading up to the day, and on the day the team is nothing short of on point! Every one of the staff members (not just the lead coordinator) has an iPad with the timeline/details on it so everyone always knows whats going on. They have ample team members there so there are always enough hands on deck. Not to mention their staff members are so energetic, kind, and excited to be at such a monuments occasion such as a wedding, and their warmness and aloha really bleeds out into the clients and their guests. Its such an honor to work along side super down to earth ladies as you'll find here. If your looking for a team that is organized, fun to work with, and most of all experienced, look no further!
