Genuine review on must have coordinator

Zenju Weddings and Events of Hawaii, LLC is hands down the reason why we had THE BEST DAY OF OUR LIVES! Yanicke, is the owner of this company and she is hands down the best coordinator! My husband and I hired her to take care of all the stress as we are in California and she is in Honolulu. We booked her and her team to do full coordination for our wedding in Kaneohe, Hawaii. It was one the best decisions we have ever made. We were married at the Paliku Garden at Kualoa Ranch in Kaneohe, Hawaii on June 14, 2023. Not even a month ago and I still cannot believe our dream wedding came to life. I am still on cloud 9 of how beautiful everything was and how smooth everything went.

From the first time we spoke with Yanicke, we could tell she was someone who would get it done. I had called Kualoa Ranch to make sure I was able to book her because per the rule of booking Kualoa Ranch, you need a minimum of day of coordinator. It pleased me to know that she had worked events on the ranch so she did not have to go through an interview process with them. What we loved the most about her is that she actively listened to our wants and our vision for our wedding. She always reassured us that she would work with our budget and not to worry. We would often text, do zoom meetings, and was always available to us.

Yanicke made sure to be the contact person for every vendor and made things so easy for us. She gave us vendor options and I appreciated that because I still felt in charge of deciding who to book. The vendors she suggested were so awesome! Every vendor went above and beyond and I am so glad Yanicke had these connections. Our wedding looked amazing and all our guests loved everything about it. There were no issues with any.

On the day of the rehearsal, Yanicke went over the setup and how everything was going to play out on the day of the wedding. On the wedding day, Yanicke came to our hotel to check on us and make sure we were up and ready to get the day started. I personally loved that about her because she was very attentive to us. When we arrived at the venue, everything was set to go. It looked so beautiful and dreamy, a dream come true. It looked so elegant and classy. I felt like I was in a dream that whole day because of how surreal it felt. Our wedding should have been featured in a magazine! Our wedding was over the top, in a great way, more than what we had expected. The vendors had surpassed our expectations.

From the beginning of the wedding to the end, she was running the event smoothly. I hate planning and having her make sure we were on schedule was so great. The reception included a great buffet, beautiful floral arrangements, an awesome Polynesian performance, a very detailed photographer, and a great DJ and emcee who knew how to get the guests excited.

If I were to have another event in Hawaii, I would not hesitate to book Zenju Weddings and Events of Hawaii, LLC again because they made our wedding such a great experience. Definitely recommend to anyone having a destination wedding. She will provide you a list of her preferred vendors that she trusts and they go above and beyond. She will not disappoint. I guarantee! Check out our amazing images from the wedding if this review didn鈥檛 persuade you enough to book Zenju Weddings.

Highly Recommend

We had the most beautiful wedding. As soon as we met Yanicke, we were captivated by her passion and commitment to bringing our vision to life. Her skillset matched her ambitious nature. As we planned our special day with her over the past year and a half, she was highly organized, always accessible, and consistently communicated with us. I was impressed with her commitment to quality and authenticity. To ensure the highest level of service, she partners with the best vendors in the industry. She always went above and beyond our expectations, made sure all the details were on point, and was transparent with the budget. Aside from planning the wedding, she recommended hotels, restaurants and activities to coordinate for our guests. On the day of wedding, she ensured that all the details were executed thoroughly, and supported throughout the day ensuring that our vision came to life. We're grateful and fortunate to have worked with Yanicke. There aren't enough words to describe her dedication, commitment, and passion.
