    We will never thank enough Jules for her help and kindness. We love that venue and all the staff was so nice. Our day was beautiful because of all these people who have worked in the shadow to offer us such a wonderful weekend. They fit in our tight budget, helping us all the time to find the best option. The pictures at the venue are also perfect. We love our wedding. So thanks for helping us to realize this dream.

    Angela Edmond was our wedding planner/catering manager, she was fabulous, very organized, very professional, couldn't have been more helpful in all aspects of my daughter's wedding. The set up, ceremony, food, food service, the venue, all beautiful and great. The Bar service and Bar management fell short and could be greatly improved but as far as Angela's responsibilities I give her an A+, guest input was that it was one of the best and most enjoyable weddings they had ever attended. I highly recommend Chaminade with some improvement to the Bar Services.

    As a wedding professional since 1996, I have to say that one constant in our wedding venue rich town has been that Chaminade Resort is one of the top tier, and very few "all in one" locations in the area. I can refer clients with absolute certainty that Angela & Rebecca as well as the entire staff will perform flawlessly.
