Filene Wedding

Colleen was amazing through the whole process. Since there was no rooms or restaurants ready becasue of Ian, we had to get a permit to have a tent on the beach. We went through a lot of hopps to get it approved and once we did it all came together to be a perfect day. The whole Lani Kai family and crew made our day truly beautiful. We are forever grateful for the love we were shown. Would recommend Colleen and crew for any wedding or party. They make it exactly what you want.

Very Affordable & Beautiful Venue

Colleen and Diane were very helpful throughout the entire process. I lost my mom 2 months before the wedding and I felt totally lost, Colleen made sure I didn't miss a beat and stepped in to make sure I was not forgetting anything. They provided me with an excellent vendor list and I would highly recommend getting your cake from Publix as it was absolutely delicious. The photographer Chris Kovaz took some amazing photos and DJ Keith was super sweet and very accommodating to my guest song requests. We went with the Hawaiian food option and the food did not disappoint! Our guests raved about the food, very delicious. For us and all of our guests this was a destination wedding and we booked site unseen, we took the chance and it paid off. Overall it was very affordable, our guest loved the atmosphere, the view and the food. We're happy with how everything turned out. Thank you Colleen & Diane for all your help and for making our day a memorable one.

Great vender and beautiful location. Their beach is privately owned and the ONLY privately owned beach on the Beach. The staff is great and they're prices are very reasonable.
