Best decision ever!
Kim is hands down the best there is! Kim made the whole wedding planning process stress free. I went into being engaged thinking I could plan the wedding myself, but slowly figured out it was going to be a bigger deal that I thought. The timeline, budget, straightforward phone calls, and quick responses made Kim such a joy to work with - she took care of everything for us! I am so happy we hired Exclusive Island Weddings to plan + coordinate our wedding. We couldn't have asked for a better team to guide us through this whole process. Kim + her team brought our wedding visions to life, and we were able to enjoy our time leading up to the wedding instead of stressing about last minute details. It was the best feeling knowing we were taken care of on our special day. We received so many compliments from our guests about how awesome Kim and her team were, all the little details, and how gorgeous the wedding was. We've said there might've been a couple things we would've changed about our wedding, but hands down the best decision we made was hiring Kim!Sent on 10/11/2019

Worth every penny!!
Kim and her team at Exclusive Island Weddings made our whole wedding experience fun and exciting, without the stress and strain that stereotypically comes with planning a wedding. Kim gave us her honest opinions and suggestions, while allowing us to customize the day's events to suit our personal needs. We couldn't be happier with how the day went and we are so grateful for the professionalism from Kim and her team. The day simply wouldn't have gone as smoothly without their help.Sent on 07/18/2019

EXCELLENT! Best decision we made!
Planning a wedding is hard work especially if you have no clue where to begin. We were always talking about how we wanted our wedding to be but didn’t know how to execute it, that’s when we saw Kim’s work via social media and heard about her through friends/coworkers. Thanks to Kim from Exclusive Island Weddings we were able to make our dream wedding a reality. We really appreciated how she took the time to build rapport, gathered our ideas and pieced them into one vision, and kept us in check with updated emails/text reminders, scheduled meetings, and wedding homework. When our big day arrived we saw how our venue transformed with amazing decor and lights and thinking back to our special day and looking at our wedding photos the way it was presented still takes our breath away. So grateful for all her hard work and patience and with the help of her team. Thank you so much Exclusive Island Weddings:)!-The TecsonsSent on 07/10/2019
Mrs Tecson: Thank you so much Kim for all your support. With our unexpected blessing on the way, I was a whole mess load of emotions. Right before I was about to walk down the aisle you saw how nervous I was but yet you smiled and encouraged me to relax and take it all in. For some reason your reassurance that everything would be ok helped and for that I thank you. I am grateful for your kindness as a person and your dedication to your craft. - Thank you
Mr Tecson: Thank you Kim for making all of this possible. Thank you for really getting to know us and guiding us through each step in the process of our wedding. Our wedding was so awesome! You have met and exceeded our expectations. Mahalo for everything!
