Nicole is the best wedding planner we could've asked for!! She helped us plan the most perfect wedding from thousands of miles away. She was prompt with her responses and clear with her communication & helped us to personalize our wedding day timeline to prioritize moments that we cared about most. We can't recommend her and her team enough because our wedding day was truly the BEST DAY EVER!!

— Leo & Mai, England, UK

The girls were worth every cent and I would recommend them to anyone. It felt as if they always went above and beyond their contracted duty to make sure we had an extra special day; we really felt well looked after.

— Amanda H., Dunbar, PA

"Honestly we wouldn't have known what we would have done without them. Our family still talks about how everything went so smoothly"

— Laura S., Co. Mayo, Republic of Ireland

"our wedding was exactly what we wanted! it was perfect! I would highly recommend anyone getting married on O'ahu to use best day ecer.  They made our wedding dreams come true"

— Bill C., Redmond, WA

"I am pretty sure that if we had done it ourselves we would have ended up paying more, we wouldn't have found the quality of services that they did, we would of wasted our vacation time in Hawaii running around taking care of stuff, and it would have just generally been stressful."

— Hanaj C., Pearl City, Hawaii

"I didn't think I need help planning my small intimate wedding but I realize now how important it is to have a wedding planner. i am so grateful and appreciative!"

This is totally up to you.  You tell us your vision and we can make it happen.  We have an incredible floral designer and can work within any budget.  Design a custom floral altar for the ceremony and add floral centerpieces the dinner table, plus matching bouquets, haku leis and more. We help you to organize your floral ideas and will get you a custom quote.  You make all final decisions on what to keep or add.  Start pinning ideas on Pinterest of florals and decor ideas that you LOVE and we'll help you to bring your vision to life!  

what kind of floral decor can we do?

We can absolutely help you with this but the cost varies and will be put together based on your specific requests (type of drinks, number of drinks, number of guests, etc.). It could be anywhere from $500 to $2000+.  

we want a full bar and cocktail hour, what is the cost? 

The pricing of this micro-wedding package is based around the menu and chef that works directly with this venue.  It includes all staffing and dinner rentals (silverware, plates, glassware, trash removal, etc.).  If you would prefer to work with your own caterer this can be arranged but fees will be much higher and you will need to pay the caterer separately.  We can help with suggestions if needed. 

We love everything about this but don't love the menu, what do we do?

Yes! We are currently accepting bookings for 2024 and 2025, for guest counts of 50 or less.  Pricing for 2025 may change based on time of booking. 


frequently asked questions

The micro wedding is not a formal full traditional reception.  It is more of a laid-back, fun lunch or dinner gathering at a gorgeous venue.  We've got about 3-4 hours after the ceremony to enjoy the view, hang out, take photos, do a cake cutting and dance.  A formal program would be totally different and would include things like a grand entrance, speeches, father daughter dance, bouquet toss, etc.  This package was set up to be less formal and more laid back, at a gorgeous oceanfront private estate. 

how is this micro-wedding different from a traditional formal reception? 

So many options here!  The easiest way to customize the look of the ceremony is by adding chairs, and a floral altar.  We work with you to put together a custom floral order with a look and feel (style and colors) that you LOVE.  Next we match the bouquet, boutonnieres and any other florals so that everything matches.  You can add floral leis for guests and we can drape them over the backs of the chairs to create a really pretty look.  Regarding altars specifically, we have a circle, 2-post, hexagon, triangle and 4 post altars to choose from.  We present you with lots of ideas and photo samples, you choose what you like best.  One other fun thing we've done is a coconut toast after the ceremony.  Coconuts are cut fresh and this is really fun plus looks great in photos. Also, if you're adding on the mini-reception you could add in a DJ or live musician, plus a Mini Luau Show with Fire Dancers. 

how can i customize My wedding & make it special?

We have four hours at the venue from the start of the ceremony until the end of the reception.  This does not include setup and breakdown time. You can add in an extra hour for an additional $695. 

how much time do we have at the venue?

This is the secret question nobody wants to ask and so I thought I'd just address it directly.  It totally varies depending on guest count and how many extras you decide to add-on.  All of our wedding packages are set up to include the basics of everything you'd need for a beautiful Hawaii wedding - but there are likely a few things you'll want to add on like hair and makeup, flowers, and transportation.  If you've never planned a wedding in Hawaii you probably have no idea how much all of this stuff costs.  We are happy help here and will outline a sample custom budget for you before you decide to move forward with booking to help ease your mind about the budget.  Just ask us when you inquire and let us know as many details as possible about your vision - the more the better! 

how much should we expect to spend on our wedding if we are doing the ceremony plus mini-reception?

More questions? 
send us a message!

Absolutely, in fact we highly encourage it!  You can either dance outside in the front lawn (oceanfront) or in the back of the house around the pool.  We will connect you with an amazing DJ to handle the music, lighting and playlist.

Can we have dancing at this venue? 

Transportation needs to be arranged and we can assist with this.  We can arrange a Mercedes Sprinter Vans to shuttle guests to and from the venue. This will be an additional fee and could run anywhere from $500-$1500.  Another option for a smaller group would be to Uber!

since there is no parking on site, how does this work?

No, unfortunately the mini-reception is only available for micro-weddings of 50 guests or less.  If you have more than 50 guests we are not offering any reception options at this time.  

We have more than 50 guests and want to do the micro wedding, can you help us? 

The Hawaii Kai Estate is the only venue that we are offering the mini reception at this point in time.  

WE want to do a micro-wedding at another venue, can we do this?

We will set you up with an incredible photographer and videographer if you choose to add these items.  There will be an additional cost, and we will get you a custom quote.  Drone footage is beautiful at this location and can be added in as well. 

what about photography & videography?
