My, now, husband and I were looking for a simple yet elegant wedding on a budget. What Sally offered was exactly that. She is observant of your style and needs. She was able to book the type of officiant we wanted and she even found a very talented photographer with impeccable taste. The bouquet she handed to me looked even better than the Pinterest inspirations I sent her! I have contacted many different vendors and planners but none were as accomodating and kind as Sally and her team. They were SO flexible and due to the different mandates every day coming from Hawaii (covid-19) it was important for us to be able to be in clear and productive communication with each other. During this hectic time, she was able to make the process seem so easy. I absolutely love and adore Sally! She is truly a gem and I do recommend her to anyone and everyone.Sent on 03/25/2020

Best Wedding Coordinators in Hawaii!!!
From the start, Sally and Nanae of Arluis Weddings were such a blessing. We had no intention of hiring a coordinator, but in the end we were so happy that we did! There are so many moving pieces to planning a wedding and Arluis Wedding coordinators made it seem so darn easy. The wedding planning process flew by and before we knew it, it was our big day! The day of our wedding was nothing short of perfect. From the coordination of vendors to hosting our guests, everything turned out to be what we dreamed our wedding would be.Sent on 12/31/2019
Following our wedding, we kept receiving compliments on how beautiful our ceremony was and how the Kahu, Elias Parker, made it extra special. Our family and friends also could not get over how on-time everything was, especially with it being a Hawaiian wedding, they expected it to be on “Hawaiian Time,” but that definitely was not the case!
If you’re still in search of a wedding coordinator, go with your gut and choose Sally and Nanae of Arluis weddings. You won’t just have the most beautiful and well thought out wedding that your friends and family will cherish forever, but you will also gain a valuable friendship with two of the sweetest and down to earth wedding planners that Hawai’i has to offer!

A Dream Come True
We were very fortunate to work with Sally, Nanae and their amazing team. They definitely went the extra mile to ensure that our wedding was perfect—from researching the best vendors within our budget to promptly answering any and every question we had. Throughout the entire process, they were professional and fun to work with, especially because they always had our best interests at heart. I am incredibly grateful for all of their hard work and dedication to making our dream wedding possible. Thank you so, so much!Sent on 11/20/2019

Nanae and sally are amazing and flexible!
I DIDN'T THINK I NEEDED A WEDDING PLANNER BEING THAT I HAD ALL IDEAS AND WANTS IN A BINDER FOR 4 YEARS. AS THE DAYS GOT CLOSER I REALIZED HOW MUCH I NEEDED THEIR HELP (and reminders of all the due dates and timelines with my vendors) ESPECIALLY WEEKS PRIOR WITH FINALIZING EVERYTHING FOR THE CEREMONY AND RECEPTION. IM SO GRATEFUL FOR THEIR HELP ESPECIALLY NANAE. SHE WOULD ALWAYS GO OUT OF HER WAY TO MEET ME...EVEN IF THAT MEANT LATE NIGHTS OR COMING TO ME AT MY CONVENIENCE. I WOULD RECOMMEND THEM TO EVERYONE I KNOW TO HELP WITH WEDDING PLANNING.Sent on 12/09/2019

Sally, Nanae, and the Arluis team made our wedding day absolutely perfect. From day one of planning, Sally was so wonderful to work with and extremely accommodating to all of our needs. I would highly recommend Sally and her team to anyone I know having a wedding. Couldn't have asked for a better experience and couldn't have planned our special day with out her. Thank you, Arluis Weddings!Sent on 11/12/2019

I would definately recommend her to my close friends if there is chance.

This wedding would not have been this beautiful and perfect without Sally at Alius!
As a sister of a groom who resides abroad, I became the main point of contact for my brother's wedding planning. Finding Sally was the best thing I did for my brother and everyone else in the wedding. She was so professional responsive and pleasant to work with. I contacted pretty much every wedding cordinator and venue in Waikiki. I am confident to say that no one was ever this professional and timely as most of them did not take me seriously for some reason. I highly ecommend Sally and Alius to anyone who is considering a beautiful destination wedding.Sent on 09/15/2019

We are so happy with Sally and her team who took care of our big day. We had a small ceremony just for two of us and our officiant and coordinator took care of all the details so that we could just enjoy a very touching and beautiful ceremony on the beach. Thank you once again!!!Sent on 09/13/2019

Amazing Wedding Planners
Arluis Weddings was absolutely fantastic to work with to plan my wedding. They were a highly professional team that met all of my wants! I worked closely with Sally and Nanae and they were both so helpful. They were able to meet me in person and go over every single detail for the wedding day. I cannot adequately put into words how grateful I am to them for making my dream wedding come true. Their services were completely satisfactory and I would highly recommend them to anyone planning a wedding. They are very professional! I loved working with them! Sally and Nanae were so kind and they really cared about what I wanted for my wedding day. I cannot be more happy with the outcome!Sent on 09/05/2019

A Swoon Worthy Wedding
I didn’t want a wedding coordinator, never dreamed of having one, but my God, did I need a wedding coordinator. Sally and her assistant, Nanae, were absolutely fantastic to work with. Considering all the complexities of a destination wedding, a bride who didn’t have much time to e-mail, and meeting the couple the day before the rehearsal, Sally and her team went above and beyond.
Sally and Nanae were incredibly professional, organized, detail-oriented, diligent, experienced, and supportive. We felt like we were in such great hands. My wedding was something out of a magazine! We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect celebration. If you think you don’t need a wedding planner, think again, and if you think you can go with just anyone, THINK AGAIN.
Throughout the night and for days after, our guests kept saying how much they loved our ceremony and how it was unlike any they have ever experienced before. Kahu delivered the most unbelievable, authentically Hawaiian, love-filled ceremony we could have ever imagined- we are still in awe.Sent on 01/28/2019
