With my very minimal knowledge if it was me I would try the certified letter first. Once you have filed a complaint with the BBB they will forward your complaint on to Blue Sky Weddings. Blue Sky Weddings will have 10 days to respond back to the BBB. If they do not respond in the first ten days, they are sent a second notice, then again a third notice. If after 30 days Blue Sky Weddings has not responded to the BBB it is left as an open complaint. The BBB is also supposed to check with you (I believe) to see if the issue has been resolved to your satisfaction.
The biggest thing is that the BBB cannot force Blue Sky Weddings to give the money back but they're basically your muscle to show that you have some powerful back-up on your side. This I all found out when I filed a complaint about a medical credit company. I'm still waiting to hear back from the company that withdrew funds from my account, unauthorized.
I wish you much luck!

In her contract, its states "Reservations will not be confirmed until receipt of this form and a non-refundable retainer of $2000 plus a deposit of $1000 for Olowalu Plantation House made payable to Blue Sky Weddings"
Your contract sounds like that $2,000 is something you wont get back because it was non-refundable. However it sounds like you're entitled to your $1,000. I would definitely raise hell on that issue. Do the certified letter AND BBB -- at this point, coming at them from as many angles as possible will help!
Keep us posted. Good luck hun
