We looked at several different locations before settling on Plantation Gardens, and believe me when I say that if you are getting married on Kauai, and you want a stress-free, easy, beautiful experience - choose Plantation Gardens. My husband and I had a small (10 person) event for a vow renewal, and the site is amazing. It is not on the beach (which was best for us because we wanted privacy), but the grounds are beautiful. We had our ceremony underneath the plumeria tree and it was romantic and secluded. There are many beautiful locations for weddings on the island, but ultimately we chose this location because of two reasons: privacy and Amy. Amy is an amazing coordinator, and she's 100% on top of everything. It's very noticeable that she loves her job and that she's amazing at it. I cannot stress enough how responsive, kind, and helpful she was! She helped us find everything from an officiant, photographer, florist, and day before hair stylist!
The food is divine and is worth every penny of the cost. We chose two types of fish and the steak and lobster for our guests. We all also highly recommend the crab and avocado salad for a starter! Every single one of our guests said it was the best wedding food they'd ever had. The staff made sure the drinks were always flowing. I must have had 6 of the Garden Island Teas (you must try!) before I realized how much I drank! They made sure that the kids always had fun non-alcoholic drinks, and kept us plied with coffee and water when needed. We did the Kona mocha cake for dessert (cakes by Sandi), and it was so good that my mother in law was speaking of it wistfully for three days.
Long story short, if you're dreaming of having the kind of event that is beautiful and stress-free, choose Plantation Gardens.

We had an amazing wedding at Plantation Gardens, and Amy was the perfect wedding coordinator! So genuinely nice, patient and made us feel very comfortable on our wedding day! The venue is beautiful- the gardens are lush and intimate and sweet. The food was unbelievable! Everyone told us it was the best wedding food they'd ever had! I would highly recommend this special spot for your special day!

What a beautiful place for a wedding reception! Amy was so kind to help us plan our wedding reception of 24 at Plantation Gardens. For the months leading up to the wedding, Amy was extremely helpful and very quick to reply to all my emails. On the day of the wedding, Amy and her staff created a beautiful atmosphere for our special day. The food was absolutely delicious, our drinks were constantly refilled, and we felt like royalty! I even spilled a mai tai on my dress and before I knew it, I had seltzer water on the table to help get the stain out! This placed is filled with aloha and I highly recommend it over and over again!!
