Yanicke did a great job helping us plan our big day! I grew up in Hawaii, but now live on the mainland, so planning a wedding from so far away proved to be difficult. Once I found Yanicke a huge weight was immediately lifted off of my shoulders. Everything I was worried about getting done (booking venue, caterer, cake, ect) while on vacation in Hawaii the year before our wedding was completed with ease via Yanicke. She took us on a whole day of venue viewing and found us the best caterer! (Seriously the guests are still raving about the food almost 6 months later!! Kenekes was the caterer) I truly believe that I could not have had the successful, beautiful and fun wedding I had if it weren't for Yanicke and her team. Lots of thanks to her and her team! - Sara and SorleySent on 12/07/2015

So I had to create an account with WEDDINGWIRE just to leave a review for Zenju Weddings and Events of Hawaii. My husband and I recently got married in Hawaii. We are a local couple and wanted a classy local wedding on a budget. If you are local you know it is difficult to have a local wedding on a budget, only because our weddings are huge! My wedding was 450 guests. Yanicke from Zenju Weddings gave me the classiest and fun wedding at a beautiful venue at Kualoa Ranch (where Jurrassic Park was filmed). She is amazing at her budget, design, and timeline. I started to freak out about money. My family were hitting up every hook up within the wedding industry they could think of. She met with us and was very straight up with us and explained to us that if me and my family would trust her, miraculous things could happen, but if we took everything into our own hands, it would make her job more difficult. She stressed to us, you have to trust your coordinator, which was hard for me to do since I'm a control freak. But I admired her honesty. I sat back and let her do her thing. Our wedding was gorgeous with such amazing landscape. She picked a venue that had such a beautiful backdrop, that we didn't need so much decor. He design elegance is simplicity. We were able to afford all professional vendors that she negotiated great deals for us. They were her preferred vendors but we were open to use anyone we wanted to, but we trusted her vendors, since she works with them consistently. If it wasn't for Yanicke I would have had a hectic back yard wedding with my family cooking the food, playing music, emceeing, and them taking over! It would have been chaotic!!!! Yanicke and her team made my special day stress free and beautiful. She made a 30,000.00 wedding look like a 60,000.00 wedding. We couldn't be happier! Thank you to the Zenju staff!!!!

Our wedding was beautiful! My wife and I enjoyed every second of it. And from the responses from our guests, they did too. If it wasn't for Yanicke and her team I don't think we would be gotten it nearly this beautiful. Mahalo to the whole Zenju team, with a big mahalo to Yanicke. Pleasure working with you!Sent on 07/28/2017
