Kristin at KBH made the destination wedding planning process so easy! I couldn't have planned a more perfect wedding had I been there myself. She was wonderful to work with from afar and such a pleasure to meet in person. The experience she created for our wedding day was unforgettable, from every detail of the ceremony to the reception afterward. Every staff person we worked with the day of was kind and attentive, and the minister was exceptional. All of this coupled with a gorgeous oceanfront ceremony site makes KBH a total obvious choice for booking your Hawaiian wedding. Thank you for making our day so special.Sent on 01/27/2017

My husband and I had a DW in Maui last November and wanted to host a welcome reception for ~120 guests the Friday evening before. We had a hard time finding a place in Maui that was affordable and would be able to hold that many people comfortably. We looked at everything - restaurant buy outs, cabana rentals, catering on a public beach. We came across the Ka'anapali Beach Hotel and their lawn spaces available for events and thought this would be the perfect fit for what we were looking for (space-wise, cost-wise, easy parking for guests, etc). We contacted Kristin Molina at KBH and from the start she was so INCREDIBLY patient and helpful. She definitely has a talent for event planning. I can't even remember how many emails I sent over, hoping she would not give up on me! :) There was never any pressure to do this or do that- Kristin was always open and flexible to what I was looking for.Sent on 01/04/2015
Kristin helped me estimate the right amount of food and drinks, organized table and chairs for the night and provided simple table centerpieces as well. We ended up going with some appetizers and had two all you can eat stations - teppanyaki and a saimin stand. The layout was beautiful and the lawn (Signature Lawn) was right by the water so people were able to watch the sunset while enjoying some drinks. All I really had to do the day of was show up- everything was already set up and ready to go!
Parking was available for our guests at a reasonable rate - hourly rates but no more than $10/day.
