Kimo was beyond amazing! Kimo showed up at our venue a few days before the wedding to scope things out and come up with a game plan! Offered great advice to us as to the setup and smoothness of the wedding. Kimo's staff was so helpful and friendly! They cleaned up everything, were on time, and really made our wedding special! Kimo's food is to die for! We had prime rib, grilled chicken with a papaya salsa, potato salad, a regular salad, coconut lime rice, and vegetable pilaf. Everyone loved the food! The chicken was so moist and fresh, I was so impressed! They helped us with our cocktail hour and our s'mores bar for dessert! Kimo's Akamai Catering goes above and beyond to service your wedding/event and makes amazing food!
We used Islands Bar Company for our wedding and we had a great experience! They helped us come up with several signature cocktails and a bar shopping list for our wedding. The bartender sent for our event, Hailey, was phenomenal. So friendly, so engaging, and made excellent drinks. All of our guests raved about how much they loved our bartender and the drinks. Thank you all for such a great bar experience at our wedding!
Teddy went above and beyond for our wedding at Sunset Ranch. He was in contact with me from the very beginning, pitching ideas for shots and concepts for the video. You can really tell he's passionate about his job. During the wedding, he and his team had everything covered and made us feel SO relaxed during shooting. They seriously know their stuff. ALSO DRONE FOOTAGE!! Such a cool feature. We are so happy we booked Teddy. THANK YOU!!
Ho'A'o Catering Just catered my daughters wedding last weekend at molii gardens in kualoa ranch. It was amazing, Sasha worked with my daughter & my family to come up with an unforgettable menu that our guests would love and she did not disappoint. The food was a HIT everybody is still talking about how delicious everything was, all I can say is Asian BBQ pulled pork was crazy delicious!!!!! Her set up is so beautiful and she takes care of everything.Thank you Ho'A'o catering....
Jeremy is one of those special, one-of-a-kind humans beings, and my husband and I could not have asked for a more perfect person to have alongside us at our wedding. He worked closely with us and was so attentive and accommodating to our needs and requests. Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted - poignant, sweet, short, and with all the right personal touches. It felt like having a very close friend instead of an officiant blessing and honoring our marriage. If you are considering hiring Jeremy/Hanai events for your special occasion - I highly recommend! You will not be disappointed in their kindness, attention to detail, and earners to go above and beyond.
Jason was incredible and I was blessed to have him for our wedding party of twelve. My mother had taken over the catering aspect of our Oahu wedding because she saw how stressed out I was, and if you do talk to Jason, he can confirm how high strung I was when we met. I perfunctorily nodded and looked at the menu, my mom handed over the money, and I barely talked to him because I was upset at our ceremony site, which looked nothing like it did in the pictures (our home base is in NYC so we didn't get to see the property until 3 days before the wedding) and I was too busy with sprucing it up to get to know Jason personally. The purpose of this preface is to say that this is obviously NOT a review of Jason as a person because upon talking to him, you'll be taken by his sense of humor, character, and charm. If the apocalypse comes you'll want him on your team, not just to cook of course but because he's so funny and has a magnanimous soul (my dad got locked out of his room and Jason stopped what he was doing in the kitchen and went to help!). This is a review obviously, of his professionalism and his INCREDIBLE food. It's unfortunate that I can't post pictures but let me just say this. People typically oversell how good they are and in Jason's case, my objective opinion is that he doesn't do enough. Exhibit A: I offered to post reviews for him in every forum possible because he really deserves the greatest public approbation but he still hasn't called or write (c'mon Jason you need to pub yourself more!). Anyways, I'll stop gushing and be helpful to those who are looking for a chef for their private event. Here are a few background notes to me so you can get a sense of where I come from and why I believe Jason deserves the highest praise. Here is a list of the courses we had that I'm recalling from memory, so the names are descriptive and less poetic than I'd like: 1) Steak Bruschetta, 2) Crabcakes, 3) Asparagas and Mushroom Salad, 4) Mahi Mahi, 5) Steak, and 6) Lobster. Pretty simple right? Jason's crabcakes were the best I've ever had. They were meaty (I couldn't tell where the breading was), flavorful, and unlike most crabcakes that are heavily battered and salted, NEEDED Jason's amazing sauce because it was barely salted. As I've said, we're based in NYC and there's no need to be snooty about food but what I mean is we've tried the best in the culinary world. I grew up in Taiwan and I've had Michelin starred restaurants in NYC, Hong Kong, and Tokyo. Most of the times I find food in most of these restaurants well plated but overhyped in taste. I'm not going to essentialize Jason because this is obviously just one meal I've had from him, but it was a 6 course meal and there were too many opportunities to be inconsistent. Jason's trademarks (again, from my one time impression): 1) light on salt (I didn't request this, I think this is just a hallmark of great cooking), 2) using the freshest ingredients, and 3) making everything from scratch (for reals, I saw him making crabcakes in the kitchen). I hope this review would be helpful to those of you who are looking for someone to cook for your event, if you or your guests are more Paula Deen than Morimoto and like thickly battered fried and refried items or go nuts with the salt shaker then Jason will be a disappointment.
Elise was amazing from day one all the way until our wedding day. We had Elise bartended for 4 hours and bring mixers, water, ice and plantation iced tea. All we had to do was provide the alcohol and she took care of the rest! She was quick to respond to my questions, was very patient with helping us choose our specialty cocktails, and always gave great suggestions when I was unsure about things (how much alcohol to buy, where to purchase ext). She was extremely easy to communicate with and did a great job setting up on the day of our wedding. Her bar station looked great! An added bonus was that she was super warm and friendly, which isn't something you always consider when hiring a bartender, but makes a big difference.
I cannot emphasize enough how wonderful Tropical Moon Events was at our wedding. All of the cocktails were such huge hits that they were all everyone wanted to drink--even those who usually only drank wine or beer! Most notably, the Passion Mai Tais and Lychee Mint Spritzers were everyone's favorite. I thought that the Cucumber Basil Gin & Tonic was very refreshing. The bartenders were so wonderful and fun, and kept up a great pace for all of the thirsty guests. The party would not have been the same without Tropical Moon Events there to liven it up!
Something New planned our wedding in September 2016 at Kualoa Ranch, Oahu. It was the best money we spent on our entire wedding! Charelle and Jillian have tremendous experience and provided the best guidance. Their focus on details, organization, schedule, and communication made our day perfect, as well as far less stressful. They have the best connections and recommended only the top tier and best value vendors for our wedding. I felt that Charelle and Jillian went above and beyond on each piece of our wedding celebration. They even helped with some events we wanted to plan on the days leading up to the event. Both Charelle and Jillian are lovely, kind, smart, easy-going, and positive people, which really helped during the high stress planning and event. Our guests have said it was one of the best weddings they have ever attended, wedding of the century! This is in large part because of Something New.
From the moment we hired Michael to be our bartender for our wedding we had no worries about everyone having a great time at our wedding. We had a couple meetings with Michael before hand to discuss logistics and what we were looking for. The second meeting was a tasting, where we got to taste every signature cocktail he had created for us. The whole experience was great! He was very detailed in explaining everything and made it a lot of fun to pick our cocktails. On the day of the event he had ample staff, had a very professional setup, and treated all of our guests great! If you are looking for a bartender that has great attention to detail and goes the extra mile for your event I highly recommend reaching out to Michael and Mad Liquid Nation!

I am a professional bartender. I've been bartending for 17 years, anywhere from a small pub to a raging dance club also tending bar at a fine dining restaurant. I am a strong believer in loyalty and hard work. Routine is part of my work ethic. If you like it a certain way, it will be done that way every time. I am very charismatic. Let me put it this way. Some people are good at throwing a ball through a hoop; others are good at selling houses. God gave me the gift of being able to pour drinks and entertain. I am a bartender; that's what I do.
