  1. Hi Naxos, I was married July 1st in Kauai, at Christ Memorial Church and had our reception at Moloaa Shangrila! It was the best day of my life and the perfect wedding! Moloaa Shangrila is by far one of the most beautiful places to host a wedding. And, I have to say that although you have to use individual vendors which can take a lot of planning you are really able to personalize your wedding to fit your personality. My pictures from that day are on my photographers website: www.laurenavila.com -go to slideshows -The Myers wedding We used Ryan Fox for catering and cupcakes and the food was insanely good! For tent rental we used Kauai tent rental, which I believe might be the only company on the island. We had a day of wedding planner named Lisa and she was excellent! I forgot the company she works for but, would be happy to PM you with her info if you are interested? Our rehearsal dinner was at Mediterranean Gourmet restaurant located in the Hanalei Colony Resort. Beautiful restaurant right on the water. And the food was excellent! Jaden the coordinator and her crew were extremely accommodating. Good luck with your wedding planning!! And let me know if there are any questions I can answer for you?
  2. Does anyone have a recommendation for hawaiian musicians on Kauai? We are looking for a duet or trio to perform only about 2 hawaiian songs at our ceremony. We are also looking into having hawaiian fire dancers perform. I have a phone number for someone that was recommended but, I am having a hard time getting in touch with them. Does anyone have a contact for either?
  3. Dolphinmaredvm, Congratulations on your recent wedding! I just want to say thank you for the recommendation for Ryan Fox! We had a private tasting with him on our recent visit and the food was some of the best I have ever tasted. He was very professional and extremely helpful. Thanks for leading us in the right direction!
  4. Hi Lori, Check out the restaurant Mediterranean Gourmet on the North Shore in Haena. We are going to have our rehearsal dinner there and the restaurant is beautiful! It is right on the water and the inside is very colorful and spacious. We didn't try the food but, the menu looks amazing. They also got best restaurant for large parties. They are located on the same property as Hanalei Colony Resort. Call the restaurant not the resort for information. The resort will put you in touch with their wedding planner. Good luck!
  5. We leave tomorrow for Kauai. We will be putting Wahoo's down on our list of places to visit. Thank you so much for the tip, I have never heard of Wahoo's before. But, then again a lot of restaurants change ownership over there. Thanks again!
  6. We loved the restaurant La Palapa. Great food, drinks and beach atmosphere! And, I think they have live music on the weekends. Good luck!
  7. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on rehearsal dinner locations. We are looking for a nice relaxed restaurant location. Somewhere that doesn't charge 20K to rent out. The north shore would be ideal but, Kapaa works too. Let me know if you have any recommendations. Much Aloha!
  8. Jay Bee, We are getting married at christ memorial chapel and then having our reception at Moloaa Shangrila. Loved your photos and review! Thanks for sharing! Dolphinmare, Thank you so much for the the email address for Ryan Fox. We will look into doing a tasting with him while we are there in April. You girls are the best! Thank you!
  9. Hi, I am new here and already have found out tons of info. I have heard of Contemporary Flavors and Kauai Cuisine for catering, but not Ryan Fox. I know there are quite a catering companies that don't advertise on the internet. Dolphinmaredvm can you give me info on Ryan Fox? My fiance and I are going to visit Kauai in April, before our July 1st wedding there. And hope to schedule some tastings. Thanks for all your helpful info!
