    Absolutely stunning wedding

    Absolutely stunning wedding, every single one of our guests said it was the best wedding they've ever been to! We would not have been able to do it without Darren. He went above and beyond, it was amazing. Just to give you an idea, on our wedding day he was on a ladder helping with the chandelier design he came up with which was spectacular.

    Amazing Collaboration and Absolutely Perfect Wedding!

    Darren is absolutely incredible! Because he is extremely talented and knowledgeable, he made the entire wedding process so effortless on our end--the advice and tips in all things wedding made working with him so wonderful. The day of our wedding, we were absolutely blown away by the magical evening he had created; from the tropical arrangements that adorned our ceremony arch, to our breathtaking reception that had amazing garlands and a topiary wall, to lastly our dance room that was the perfect mixture of whimsical fairy tale and swanky dance club--a very fine balance that he walked perfectly! He is a genuine person that truly cares about you as a person--using his connection with you to deliver on your vision for your event; honestly, I will miss speaking with him so regularly. I consider him a friend and will always be recommending him to anyone and everyone. He has gone far above and beyond my expectations and delivered a night for my husband and I to remember always. Much Aloha Darren and A Hui Hou!

    Mahalo my friends! Congratulations and thank you for having us to be a part of your beautiful day! We will never forget this memorable experience with you all. Thank you for the kind words and we are so happy about the big surprise of the dance club room, it's always a little nervous when there is a surprise element but to have a whole room be a surprise :) it was so much fun! Thank you for allowing us to be a part and I look forward to seeing you all again for sure! Mahalo and A Hui Hou! Darren

    The best ever

    Darren was one of the best investments that we made in our wedding day. Darren is an extremely friendly and helpful person. He made everything go so smoothly taking all the pressure off of me and my bride. He went above and beyond what we expected of him.

    We hired Darren as our day of coordinator and wow did he deliver. He went above and beyond our expectations, he was there with any questions we had and easily guided us to what we had envisioned for our wedding day. 

    On our wedding day he was there for our every need, he totally saved the day when there we not enough bouquets for my bridesmaids. He grabbed the left overs and magically created two more! We love Darren and would highly recommend him to anyone who needs that support and guidance for their special day!
