When it comes to planning your wedding, we recommend Weddings Hawaii. They have a wealth of experience coordinating weddings in Kauai and will take the stress and confusion out of planning your big day. Their attention to detail, organization, and local knowledge are unparalleled. To get started on your customized wedding, fill out the getting started page on their website and they'll email you a wedding plan and pricing. For the location of your ceremony, two beaches that we highly recommend are Shipwreck Beach and Maha'ulepu Beach. Shipwreck Beach offers a lovely white sand beach and a trail that leads to stunning cliffs, perfect for capturing wonderful photographs. Maha'ulepu Beach, while secluded, is beautiful and ideal for intimate ceremonies. When it comes to dining, we have two exceptional restaurants near the Villas that we recommend for your wedding dinner. Plantation Gardens, located a mile away on Poipu Road, offers a beautiful setting and excellent food. The Beach House Restaurant, situated right on the beach on the way to Spouting Horn, provides a romantic atmosphere and a succulent selection of dishes. Flowers play a crucial role in any wedding, and we recommend Mr. Flowers and Blue Orchid for all of your floral needs. Mr. Flowers, owned by a fifth-generation florist, is known for creating fresh and fabulous flower arrangements with outstanding design, service, and professionalism. To set the right ambiance, music is essential. We have three exceptional artists to choose from: Paul Togioka, Kirby Keough, and Troy Waialeale. Whether you prefer traditional Hawaiian music or custom music, any of these artists can provide just the sound you're looking for. A trusted officiant will ensure that your ceremony flows smoothly, and we recommend two local officiants in Kauai: Pastor Harold Kilborn and Rev. Koko Kaneali'i. Pastor Kilborn can perform your ceremony in Hawaiian and English, with a more Christian content, while Rev. Kaneali'i is a native Hawaiian with a warm, aloha spirit. Both will create a beautiful and meaningful ceremony for you and your spouse. When it comes to capturing the precious moments of your destination wedding, we have several talented photographers to choose from. Bob Cox Photography specializes in Kauai weddings and offers flexibility and professionalism. Emily Helen is known for providing high-quality photos and excellent service. Ron Kosen, owner of PhotoSpectrum, has 25 years of experience as a professional photographer and has a laid-back and calming presence. Michael Yulo has been an amateur photographer for over 30 years and has pleased many guests with his beach-setting vow renewal photos. As you can see, the Villas at Poipu Kai and our carefully selected partners are dedicated to making your wedding in Kauai a truly incredible experience. We are committed to creating memories that will last a lifetime for you and your wedding party.

“I purchased a photo session for my daughter-in-law as a baby shower gift, to be used for maternity or newborn photos (she chose maternity). The photos are magical - they perfectly capture their love story. Leah is a talented photographer who brings out the very best, and is so easy to work with. Both my son and daughter-in-law thoroughly enjoyed their session. If you're looking for a photographer, look no further. You won't be disappointed.”

“Leah was awesome to work with. I went in with a little vision of what I wanted my shoot to look like and she used all the natural elements in my favor. The outcome of the photo shoot gave me several awesome options to choose from for my song release. I highly recommend Salt Drifter Photography for your photo needs in Kona.”
