  • My Fiance, Paolo, and I became engaged a few months after I graduated from college and I knew right away who I wanted as my Wedding Coordinator, Kim Yonamine. I had seen Kim's design work and witnessed her professionalism while I was a MOH for one of my best friend's weddings; I'd also like to mention that my best friend and I are originally from Maui, but we have moved away since highschool, so Kim has been a dream to work with because even though we both aren't on Maui to meet the vendors, Kim has been our eyes and ears on Maui for our weddings. Kim was very helpful with her recommendations of vendors and keeping our wedding within our desired budget. She was patient and attentive with all my questions and concerns throughout the planning process and made planning from Oahu easy-peezy. Unfortunately, my fiance and I were one of the couples who had no choice but to postpone our May 30, 2020 wedding because of the COVID-19 quarantine and travel restrictions. At the start of A...

  • Kim at Exclusive Island Weddings is definitely a JOY to work with! She's really experienced with her work and is very creative and talented! Before COVID, She really had everything set in line for us. I don't think I have had to stress, ONCE during the planning. To be honest, I feel bad because I felt as if I wasn't doing anything! That's how great she is at her job. She really took over the whole wedding process and had us just focus on working and saving up money for the wedding! With COVID in the way, everything is on pause but I know for sure I can count on Kim to still make our dreams come true when this is all over.

  • Aloha! This is the follow up to our review on 10/1/2020. We originally hired Kim after seeing her on IG. Our wedding was originally planned for June 2020. Kim was wonderful in helping us move the date with the venues and vendors to June 2021. Being that we planned this entire wedding sight unseen, we put all our trust in Kim. We had a curve ball a week out as US would not all the grooms parents from the UK to fly to US. Thank goodness Kim had recommended CK Cinema in the beginning. She said if we want to do a live stream along with a videographer, he’d be the guy. In the end we did need his services to live stream as well. She did us right and so we’re all her recommendations of vendors. We couldn’t have been more pleased with our special day! Our guests were in awe of the venue and every single detail Kim helped us plan. We can’t thank Kim and her staff enough! Also, special thanks to Olowalu Plantation House, Food for the Soul, Rolland & Jessica photography, Maui Altere... Read more

  • In fall of 2019, we stumbled upon Kim via my maid of honor. She randomly saw her fun posts on Instagram. After reviewing her Instagram posts and setting up an initial call, we knew she was our person. Maui being a destination wedding for us, we needed someone organized, honest, creative, and detailed. All through our planning, Kim displayed these traits and then some. Little did we know that 3 months out from our wedding, we also needed someone to go into reactive pandemic mode. When we called to discuss what was happening in the world and the steps to move the wedding to next year, she set my mind at ease. Being in the hospitality industry, I knew what she was dealing with on her end and she took it in stride. She made all the calls and helped organize/arrange all the changes with our vendors. As we continue our planning for next year, I’m even more confident than before we selected the best planner for our special day. Thank you Kim!

  • I am so grateful that we are able to work with Kim Yonamine at Exclusive Island Weddings. Our first impression of Kim was that she is professional, experienced, and passionate about providing couples with amazing wedding planning service, which is why we chose her out of the many planners we interviewed. Like many other couples, we had to postpone our wedding to the next year, and Kim was on top of everything before we made the decision to do so. She ensured that every vendor was notified of our date change and was able to book each on for our new date. She was ready with new contracts to be signed right away and we didn't have to do a thing. Being in California, I thought it would be stressful to plan a destination wedding, especially during a pandemic, however, it has been such a breeze with Kim since she took care of everything. We are way ahead of schedule for a wedding that will take place now in 2021 and I am very pleased with that. When the shelter in place order start... Read more

  • I am so grateful that we are able to work with Kim Yonamine at Exclusive Island Wedding. Without her I don’t know what to do despite this pandemic going on. Due the covid19, we decided to postpone our March, 2021 to March, 2022. This heart-breaking decision, but not nearly as heartbreaking as the idea of putting our loved ones at risk. Things are changing rapidly. Hoping by that time everything will be back to normal and hopefully all my closest family, relatives and friends from other Island, states and other countries will join us to celebrate our special day. When deciding to postpone our wedding Kim is very compassionate and realistic. She ensured that every vendor was notified of our date change and was able to book each on for our new date and I am very pleased with that and she take good care everything. Not only that “stress free” she also makes sure we stay at the same page all the time. One thing what I really like her service was she kept tabs on the current status of... Read more

  • *Post wedding update - 03/07* There are really no words to describe Kim's work. Her dedication to her skill is evident in her execution. When COVID rocked this industry and brought it to a standstill, Kim eased our fears and turned the unknowns to knowns. Every step in planning our untraditional COVID wedding was delicately crafted. Kim strived (and succeeded) in making sure that not only did our guests feel safe but our vendors also. She made sure every precaution was taken (vendor testing, social distancing), every rule was followed (taking guests temps, submitting contact tracing), and most importantly she made sure to remind us that love was not cancelled. If I had to choose one outstanding trait (though there are many) it's that Kim's communication is second to none. She was our liaison in educating us of any changes to COVID regulations, she kept all of our vendors informed and prepared, and even lent us a friendly ear (on multiple occasions) when we felt defeated and n...

  • Working with Kim Yonamine at Exclusive Island Weddings has been nothing but a blessing. Due to unforeseen circumstances my fiancé and I had to make the difficult decision to postpone our wedding. Kim has been very diligent with keeping up on the latest details regarding the wedding industry in Hawaii and updating with us on a monthly basis. Rescheduling our wedding with Kim has been flawless and stress free because Kim is very detail oriented, has excellent communication with us and our other wedding vendors, and most importantly puts our happiness/concerns as her hightest priority. Mahalo Nui Kim for all that you do, not only for us, but for all your clients especially during the COVID-19 pandemic!

  • Kim has been absolutely wonderful to work with! From the beginning, she’s always been on time with meetings, and very organized and informative as she clearly has the experience to know what it takes to make a dream wedding a reality. Kim’s experience especially spoke volumes this year during the pandemic when the world looked like it was falling apart. Navigating through an unprecedented situation like COVID-19 is no easy task, but Kim took the situation in stride, and kept us apprised of the situation on the ground to help us make a decision on whether having a wedding like we planned was at all possible in 2020. At the beginning of the pandemic when everything was uncertain, Kim made sure to reach out to all the vendors to figure out their policies so that we could make better decisions on what to do next. By the time it became clear that COVID-19 was not going away any time soon, we were already well-prepared and informed to make a decision on our wedding thanks to Kim. Whe... Read more

  • Kim at Exclusive Island Weddings is simply AMAZING! I am truly blessed and appreciative of everything she has done for us and continues to do for us w/regards to our wedding. She is always so organized with our timelines & budget, keeps us on track, and is more than understanding when it comes to our decisions and/or requests. Like many other couples, our wedding was impacted by COVID-19 which left us questioning "what now & where do we go from here?" Kim not only reached out to us personally but was so reassuring that we could overcome this hurdle and find a solution. She quickly reached out to our vendors, made new arrangements based on our requests, and always communicated updates with us in a timely manner. All thanks to Kim, my fiancé and I are still able to do a small ceremony this year on our original date and postpone our reception to next year - honestly, we could have not done this without her help. She truly goes above and beyond to make your weddings happen! From the botto... Read more

  • Kim is hands down the best there is! Kim made the whole wedding planning process stress free. I went into being engaged thinking I could plan the wedding myself, but slowly figured out it was going to be a bigger deal that I thought. The timeline, budget, straightforward phone calls, and quick responses made Kim such a joy to work with - she took care of everything for us! I am so happy we hired Exclusive Island Weddings to plan + coordinate our wedding. We couldn't have asked for a better team to guide us through this whole process. Kim + her team brought our wedding visions to life, and we were able to enjoy our time leading up to the wedding instead of stressing about last minute details. It was the best feeling knowing we were taken care of on our special day. We received so many compliments from our guests about how awesome Kim and her team were, all the little details, and how gorgeous the wedding was. We've said there might've been a couple things we would've changed about our... Read more

  • We have been working with Kim for nearly a year and a half now and could not be happier that we made the decision to work with Exclusive Island Weddings. Communication was always prompt, information was always organized, and Kim remained professional through it all. Like so many other couples, our wedding date was impacted by covid-19 restrictions. In our situation, the decision to postpone was made just one week before our wedding day. One week! We could have easily felt overwhelmed and defeated, but Kim didn't skip a beat and took care of EVERYTHING, making the process as smooth as it could possibly be. From informing our venue and vendors (15+ contacts) to helping us find a new date, we were confident that she would help us find a way to make things work. Thanks to Kim, we secured all of our original vendors and a new date at our original venue. Our heads would spin if we did this on our own! We are so grateful for all her help and look forward to celebrating our special ... Read more

  • Exclusive Island Weddings did an amazing job! From start to finish, Kim and her staff made everything so easy and handled all the stress with ease so we didn’t have to. It went so perfect, all we had to do was show up. When we got to the venue, everything from the flowers, to the bar, to the setting up of the tables, to the desserts, the whole setup for the ceremony were put together so perfectly, it was like my dream wedding had come to life. It was everything I’ve ever dreamed of and so much more. Our whole wedding was put together so intimately, as a bride, I couldn’t help but get emotional. Exclusive Island Weddings made our day the most magical day ever. I don’t think there’s any planner out there that can execute a day like ours so perfectly, and so smoothly. If you’re looking for a full service planner, Kim and her team are the most reliable source out there. We had the most incredible time of our lives, it will definitely be a day we will always remember. Our guests... Read more

  • Kim planned our special day and she definitely exceeded our expectations!!!!! From the start, Kim was straight up honest with us and that’s why we hired her. She was so easy to talk to and had such a sweet personality. Our planning process was stress-free because she handled almost everything (even the most littlest things). Trusting Kim and her amazing team of vendors was the best decision we ever made. Her team of vendors are just as amazing! Everything went smoothly and turned out beautiful. Thanks again Kim we appreciate everything you did for us!
