  • 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... Read more

  • 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!

  • It was a wedding of my dreams. Yanicke was very awesome about pointing me into the right direction when it came to planning my destination wedding. Yanicke and her staff really went out of their way to make it perfect for my husband and I to enjoy the day of, everything went so smooth. I would totally recommend to anyone planning a destination wedding in Hawaii.

  • We had our wedding organised by Zenju Weddings in Kapolei. We're from Australia, so we indeed needed a planner to take care as many details as possible. I have to say that Yanicke did an exceptional job in organising the event. She took care of everything and she was very good at explaining what choices we had. She was able to work within the budget we gave her initially. In the end, the wedding was absolutely perfect and it was also the exact way we pictured and wanted it. I would highly recommend Zenju Wedding to anyone that is planning to organise one such important event!

  • It doesn't matter if you're Jesus and you just proposed to Aphrodite. Planning a wedding is going to be one of the most stressful experiences, especially if it's a destination wedding. However, this entire experience would've been a complete disaster if it wasn't for Yanicke at Zenju to coordinate and plan this out. We were caught completely off guard by the sheer amount of minute details that no one really takes into consideration when planning the biggest party of your life. Yanicke calmly walked us through everything and easily laid out our vision of the night in a perfect timeline. Everything was well put together, on time, and somewhat stress free. Thank you again Yanicke for a perfect wedding! Couldn't have done it without you!!!

    Quentin and Christina, I am so honored you chose me to plan your special day. You are mroe than welcome and very happy I could step in and assist you with your vision. I understand you went through major stress with your venue before finding us. I'm thrilled I was able to make this a memorable affair. Please keep in touch!!!! You are a lovely couple and the Zenju team wishes you all the best. Mahalo!

  • Zenju Wedding (Yanicke and Staff) worked flawlessly during our welcome night, wedding rehearsal, and on our wedding day. On our welcoming night, they worked with control and was very professional, courteous, and pleasant with all of our families and friends who stayed with us. We know we are destined to meet Yanicke to achieve our dream wedding and so we did. From the moment we sat down and draft our first plan she already blew our minds with so many beautiful ideas about our event. She is very organized and very easy to work with. During our wedding, Yanicke did a super job, to ensure that we had an amazing wedding experience. All of her vendors arrived on time and worked independently, without a sign of them being rushed or too stressed. It was a smooth flow the way they worked. She was very attentive to detail. For example, our wedding ceremony on the garden was none other than we have ever experienced. It was set up so beautifully and majestically that we wish we could ke... Read more

    Faye and Ben it was such a great pleasure planning your special day and thanks for the kind words. I do want you to know this experience was so smooth because you both were trusting. Having trust in your wedding coordinator is a hard concept for most to grasp, but since you both trusted me it allowed me to do the best that I can. I will miss you! Aloha and congratulations.....

Everything was smooth sailing, with Yanicke I not only gained the ultimate wedding planner but the greatest friend. I would highly recommend Yanicke and her staff to anyone especially when you know you want to be stress free during planning and day of the event. Yanicke and her staff went beyond levels and out done themselves. We love you Yanicke and staff! Thank you so much for the hard work and effort that you all put into making our event the best and memorable one!!!! Love you all!!!

  • I would like to start off by saying thank you to Yanicke from Zenju Weddings and Events of Hawaii. She is the most efficient and organized wedding coordinator ever! She has become a very important asset in our lives. So,planning a destination wedding from AK was not easy. Once my fiancé purposed a year ago I knew I wanted to go back home to get married. I also wanted my fiancé to experience my culture. I live in AK but I am originally from Oahu. There is no other place more magical to me. I do have a lot of family on the island who could of coordinated everything for me. But I wanted my family to enjoy themselves and not worry about a thing on my special day. I have also been to many weddings where the family planned it and it was complete chaos. It was very important for my special day to go smoothly. I was recommended to Zenju Weddings and Events from a friend who used this company and raged how amazing the owner was. When I met with Yanicke the owner, she was personabl... Read more

  • Overall, she was unorganized. This made the planning process frustrating and the day of several key items of the ceremony and reception were forgotten about. Nothing tragic, but I would not recommend her to friends.

    responded with the following comments.

    I am so sorry you feel this way. If you thought I was disorganized, I would have like to know sooner rather than later. I could have resolved the matter or given you a discount for any inconveniences that were caused. If a client does not let me or any of our coordinators know that they are dissatisfied, how can we resolve the matter? I am so sorry you had a bad experience and hopefully I can rectify the situation if I knew which event this was and who you are. Please call when you have a chance and let us know what you were dissatisfied about. Mahalo.

  • 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 Sorley

    Many Mahalos Sara and Soley. I loved coordinating your wedding, such a FUN group with ecclectic music taste. The DJ had a great time playing your song list. The only reason I was able to create such an amazing event for Sorley and yourself, is mainly due to the fact, of TRUST. You trusted our team, which allowed us to do the job with ease. Congrats guys and please keep in contact. It was such a pleasure!!!!!!

  • Zenju weddings was the solution for me to plan our destination wedding, what do you do when you want to get married some place that you don't know and where you have to cross more than five hrs of ocean to get there? Well, what my now husband and I did was to get some help from Yanicke and her team to plan our dream wedding. And you know after all it end up being the best day of our lives! Every time I think about that day it was great couldn't ask for more. she work so hard to make it all look wonderful!.......

  • Yanicke was great! I would love to say that our big day went off without a hitch, but that was not the case. Unfortunately, on our big day my dad did not make it, one of my bridesmaids dresses was flown in, and my table runner were flown in to my house on south shore (I was getting married on North Shore). Despite the late bridesmaid and table runners, everything was set up in time. She was also great about looking around the grounds several times looking for my father. She was even greater about getting my uncle for me when he didn't show up. Although we were running late all night she made sure that all the major events happened within the 4 hour time period that we had with the videographer. I couldn't have asked for a more cooperative and responsive wedding coordinator. Thanks Yanicke!!

    Awwww thanks Krystle! Love to you and Thomas... It was a pleasure working on your event:)
