10/10 would recommend

Kim did an amazing job from preplanning to day-of coordination. She has a great list of vendors which made it easy to plan a destination wedding. She was organized, responsive, and respectful of our budget. I don't plan on getting married again, but if I did, I would choose Kim to plan it.

Amazing Wedding in Maui

Kim and her team were fantastic! They helped accommodate for a beautiful at home wedding. She was very punctual and on top of everything well in advance and encouraged us to get tasks done in a healthy time interval to prevent too much stress on the day of the wedding. She had excellent recommendations and was amazing at coordinating food, event supplies and personally arranging amazing floral supplies. I would definitely recommend her to anyone interested in getting married in Hawaii.

If I could give Kim 10/5 stars, I would!

Exclusive Island weddings is run by an absolute superwoman, Kim Yonamine. We reached out to Kim about 9 months before our wedding, and during our initial consultation, she not only came prepared with questions to get a feel for our wedding vision - she also set realistic expectations with us regarding our timeline and budget. Immediately after we talked, she sent a list of vendors tailored to us. Kim is a true professional and has strong relationships within the Maui Wedding community. We always felt she had our best interests at heart and were lucky to have her as our wedding's team captain.
In the months leading up to our wedding, Kim was always prepared for our monthly meetings, and sent us concise to-do lists to keep us on track and organized.
During wedding week, Kim and her team worked like a well-organized machine. They were friendly but professional and we were so grateful to have them with us. In addition to planning/coordination, Kim and her team also do their own floral arrangements - they were GORGEOUS.
Though our wedding day is a happy blur, I do know that I was not asked to put out a single fire or answer any logistical questions because Kim's team took care of everything. We could not be happier with how our wedding turned out and are so grateful to Kim and her team for all of their hard work.
We could not recommend Exclusive Island Weddings more highly to anyone looking to get married on Maui.
