“Wow, where do I even begin.I began working with Kim at Island Wedding Memories well over a year before my wedding date. All of our communication was done via email and she was always very quick to respond. I was nervous planning a destination wedding from Michigan and finding a planner who could bring my dream wedding vision to life but Kim and her team at Island Wedding Memories completely exceeded my expectations in every way. Kim is so kind and really listens to all your ideas and has an impeccable eye for details. She does many weddings and works with so many vendors and knows exactly how to put together a wedding. She is truly a professional in the industry. I explained my vision to Kim and sent photo ideas of what I wanted everything to look like and I put my trust in her and her team and they executed everything beautifully. Not a single detail was missed. I could go on and on about how beautiful and perfect my wedding day was. Not only was Kim my planner but she was also my photographer (Aihara Visuals Photography) and the photos are so stunning. Typically the turnaround time for the final photos is a few weeks but I asked Kim for a photo that I could post on social media the next day and she sent me so many previews the next afternoon! She has been photographing for over 11 years and knows how to capture the perfect shots in all types of lighting, especially sunsets! I would recommend Kim to anyone and everyone and I cannot thank her and her team enough for my perfect wedding day!” – Michelle, wedding date 10/8/18
“I got married on the 29th of June. I live in another state so having a destination wedding was going to be a challenge for sure. Weddings in general can be stressful, planning a wedding from afar without being able to visit venues, research vendors, confirm menu items and understand cultures is a project in itself. This is where Kimberlee Aihara from Island Wedding Memories came into play. From day 1 she was amazing. We communicated via email for my entire wedding planning process. For someone who has a crazy busy schedule and is working with different time zones, this was a dream come true. Everything leading up to my wedding was stress free. Stress free to the point where I was convinced we were missing all sorts of things. Convinced that the day of, SOMETHING would go wrong. Welp. Guess what? Not a single thing went wrong. Everyone told me, at least one thing will go wrong on your wedding day. Expect it. Nothing went wrong! Everything down to the weather the day of was absolutely perfect. So many people complimented me on how gorgeous my wedding was. How great everything looked, how smooth everything went. How beautifully set up it was. I do my research and as much as I’d like to take the credit for that perfect day, I am all about giving credit where credit is due. My ship sailed smoothly because of Kim. She was amazing. She was kind, helpful, thorough, and thoughtful. She was everything I needed. Thank you so much for everything Kimberlee. You have no idea how happy you have made me. This day was everything I dreamt of. Exceeded my expectations and it’s all because of you. Thank you again!! – Bride, wedding date 6/28/19
” I contacted Kim at Island Wedding Memories more than a year before our desired wedding date in Maui. From the very beginning, Kim was easy to work with. Throughout the planning process, she was accommodating with our needs and quick to make helpful suggestions. She was also quick to respond to all of my emails, answering my worried questions about details with ease. I was somewhat nervous about the idea of a destination wedding, specifically not being able to meet any of the vendors or see the venue or even meet Kim before the big day. But I had no reason to worry, because Kim and her team pulled together the most beautiful wedding we possibly could have hoped for. She gave me a by-the-minute breakdown of the wedding day well in advance so I knew exactly what to expect, and so I was able to keep the wedding party and immediate family apprised of how it would go. Kim was also our wedding photographer (Aihara Visuals Photography) and she produced the most beautiful previews for us just five days after the wedding, and anyone who has been married knows that family and friends begin to ask about photos pretty much immediately after the wedding, so this was so appreciated. I cannot speak highly enough of Kim as both a wedding planner and a photographer. If you are considering a Maui wedding, I know from experience that with Kim you will be in excellent hands. My advice would be to trust her and enjoy the process. – Bride, wedding date 4/3/19
