    Phenomenal Venue and Service

    Having Julia there to help us plan our wedding from 2,500+ miles away (we're from Los Angeles) was by far the biggest benefit in the entire process. Honestly, we wouldn't have had it any other way! Everything from the flower arrangements to photographers/videographers to finding the perfect desserts, she knew it all.

    Two major hurdles, as I'm sure this is the case for any couple planning a destination wedding, are budget AND trusting that everything you choose will be up to par (since you can't taste the food, walk around the venue, etc. beforehand). It is safe to say that Daylight Mind provides great value for what they offer, and the food, service, and overall experience were top notch.

    I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND starting the conversation with Julia to see how they can help you plan your dream destination wedding. She'll help you to take the stress out of planning and does a really good job of ensuring that you are in the moment throughout the day :)

    Was this a dream?

    Holy Moly....Never did I imagine such a beautiful evening. It was absolutely perfect. The weather held out, which was great considering it was October. The food, as always here, was superb. People are STILL talking about my cake. I opted for coconut cake with lilikoi mousse filling and a coconut frosting. Man alive, was it delicious. Corey did an AMAZING job with the flowers on my cake. Literally my dream cake. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. We opted for a full open bar and it was very reasonable for the amount of people we had. The location is amazing. We walked from our hotel in Kailua. It's right on the water with a perfect view of everything in Kailua and, of course, the sunset.

    Alycia was an absolute dream to work with. Very easy to correspond with, got back to me quickly and eased my nerves when I started to worry about rain. She even DISCREETLY handled an unruly guest that had too much to drink and took care of it without causing a scene, so it didn't ruin our evening.
    That was the icing on the cake (so to speak) for me.

    We opted to have a fire dancer at the end of the evening. A nice touch that everyone enjoyed and totally reasonable as far as price. One other thing we did outside their standard package was get monstera leaves for the table. It didn't need it, as their simple table decor was wonderful, but I happen to be obsessed with them, so that's why. Otherwise, simple is better and they do a phenomenal job.

    I really couldn't imagine this day turning out better. If I could get married again, there is nowhere else I would do it. Daylight was perfect to the last detail.

    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!
