Perfection in Paradise
We had our ceremony and wedding at Plantation Gardens. Planning a wedding from thousands of miles away can seem totally overwhelming; however, Amy made the planning process so simple. Plantation Gardens works with the BEST vendors--and made the process so easy. It felt as though we were able to just show up and enjoy the day--they took care of every detail, which was exactly what we wanted. Amy is well respected on the island and a joy to work with. She kept me calm as the ring bearers became a bit rowdy right before their big moment. The orchid garden is an amazing location for the ceremony--and seamlessly transitions into the cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing. The food was unbelievable--many of our guests stated the food was rated among one of their best meals they have ever had. They were sensitive and proactive for our guests with food allergies. There are many different options from the menu and it was so hard to narrow it down as everything looked so amazing. We ended up choosing the tuna, rib-eye, and surf and turf and all three were perfection. The service was just the BEST--they were so proactive and anticipated our every need. We received so many positive comments about how awesome the service was at our wedding. When my husband I were looking back on the day, there is literally not one thing we would have changed. Amy and her team made our day perfection. I cannot thank Plantation Gardens enough!Sent on 09/20/2019

Peace of mind for destination wedding
We were juggling communicating in 3 different timezones between Washington DC, San Francisco, and Kauai. It would seem like a wedding planning nightmare, but working with Amy made it so calm and easy. Amy was so professional, responsive, and extremely helpful and easy to work with. The food and drinks were great and all our guests RAVED about the service. It was such an amazing experience working with Amy and the team. Highly recommend!Sent on 06/19/2019

My wedding at Plantation Gardens was absolutely perfect and that's all thanks to Amy the coordinator and her amazing staff. I live in Texas so planning a wedding in Kauai was a daunting task but Amy's quick responses, fantastic organization skills, attention to detail, and calm nature helped tremendously. The venue itself is gorgeous with lush gardens and amazing food. The wait staff was kind and extremely professional. I cant say enough good things about this place!Sent on 08/23/2019
