"I'm a PA girl that was trying to plan a wedding in Oahu to keep it close to home and family. I didn't think I would need a wedding planner since my family is there and I am pretty creative myself. I thought, obviously, I wouldn't need one. I also thought it would save more money for me to do it all myself. It sucks that I was wrong on both ends. Why doesn't anyone tell you this before you rip your hair out?
I was still pretty skeptical even when I walked in to meet Chavah - but I walked out of there a free and happy woman. I thought I was just going to hire her for the day-of package but when I saw her work I knew needed her for more. She basically took all the horrible stuff that I didn't want to do (scheduling appointments, organizing contracts, payment schedules, blah, blah, blah) and just asked me what I wanted and what was within my budget. What a difference from endless emails and calls back and forth from florists, Caterers, bakers and on and on. Chavah had a list of vendors that she had worked with organized by who was the least expensive to who was the absolute best. We figured out what things were the most important to and hired the best caterer and the things that were the least important we hired the less expensive vendors. She was amazing. I have never heard of any other wedding planner doing this! She really cared about what I wanted. We even cut out the monogrammed napkins and added a monogrammed light for over the dance floor. The monogrammed light was actually cheaper and made such an amazing difference. And who cares about napkins anyways! It was just on my "wedding list" I got on the internet. Never trust the random wedding stuff from the internet. Hire a professional. It is totally worth it.
After several florist meetings I decided to just go with Vida Chic for my flowers as well. She charged 10% my lowest quote from other florists and they were so gorgeous.
She is a magician."
