I had the privilege of working with Tina who was very flexible with setting up 2 site visits. She is passionate about her position and the company she is working for. She shared her knowledge about ceremony and reception ideas.Sent on 07/24/2019
As for the state park it has been renovated with upgrades in the prep kitchen, it has a wonderful rustic interior, and the view of Kaneohe Bay is gorgeous.

Best event venue on the island!
He'eia State Park is a beautiful and well-maintained park with a rustic banquet hall located on the Windward side of Oahu. With the Ko'olau, the fishpond, Kaneohe Bay and the gardens filled with native plants, there are breathtaking views everywhere you look. I feel so lucky to have been able to hold my wedding here.Sent on 09/27/2019
If you're looking for an affordable venue that can accommodate about 150-200 guests, I highly recommend He'eia. It's the best! Plus, Tina and her team are super friendly and helpful.
