    WOW. The only word to encompass the venue, the food, and Julia! Our wedding reception was flawless. The decor was perfect, the food was top notch , and Julia even had a plate of appetizers waiting for us when we made our way to the venue after pictures. Every person there commented on how kind the staff was and how amazing eveything looked. She answered every email and question I had for her, even pertaining to things outside the reception. You can’t go wrong with a venue on the water and a coordinator that is up with the best of the best. Thank you Julia and Daylight Mind!

    Aloha Leahi,

    I have your thank you card hanging in my office! I loved getting to help you and Ryan with your wedding reception, and I still see your dad around town. I look forward to seeing you two when you come home to visit!

    Warmest aloha,

    Julia and the Daylight Mind Team

    Best decision - gorgeous views, great team!

    We can't say enough amazing things about our wedding at Daylight Mind and Julia! In addition to being an incredible value, the location is spectacular, even better in person than in the photos you see online! Communication and organization with Julia was great! Julia made us confident that our wedding was going to be amazing even though we were planning from a distance! Gorgeous views!! Delicious food!! We had the fish & coconut curry tofu. Our guests (we had 72) continue to talk about how wonderful and fun our wedding was and the delicious food! The fact that we could do almost everything through Daylight Mind (ceremony and reception, food, cake, lighting, favors...), made everything so much easier! Thank you Julia and Daylight MInd for all that you did to make our day amazing!!!

    Mahalo for your review, Meike! I just shared my first of your wedding photos on the Daylight Mind Events instagram, and I can't wait to share more. You and Mark were lovely to work with and the alpacas visiting Daylight Mind were icing on the cake! - Julia Pittman and the Daylight Mind Team

    Julia and the whole team at Daylight Mind are an absolute dream to work with, not only is the staff top notch, but the food is delicious, and the view is to die for. Daylight Mind is innovative in their creative menu design and works with each couple and their planner to ensure that the whole venue/catering experience is enjoyable and stress-free. If you are looking for an oceanfront venue with spectacular year-round sunsets, look no further than Daylight Mind.

    I've photographed several wedding receptions at Daylight Mind and I think it's a hidden gem! The spacious waterfront lanai is so close to the ocean, you feel like you're on top the water! The view from the top lanai is breathtaking, and then there's the ocean breeze and the sound of waves crashing.. it all makes for a relaxing, upscale yet laid back experience! Julia is professional, friendly, and very easy to work with, and let's not forget the food......which is amazing, it's one of my favorite restaurants! If you're looking for a unique wedding reception venue in downtown Kailua-Kona, I highly recommend Daylight Mind!

    Daylight Mind is a favorite venue of ours for so many reasons! First off, how can you beat that oceanfront setting and amazing sunset - all from your own private lanai for you to enjoy with your closest friends and family! As an outside planner who loves to get creative and focus on design elements to make your day unique and special, Daylight Mind allows me the freedom to think outside the box and provides an amazing, energetic team to create a fabulous event for our couples. Throughout the planning process, Julia is quick to respond to questions, assist with menus and the day of the event she is always on the front line and behind the scenes making sure everything is going smooth! She and her team are always so accommodating and supportive - it is a pleasure to work there!
