Sami and Taku

Sami and Taku

Sami and Taku are such a fun couple! They got married in October 2018 at the farm but that had not always been the plan. They had originally booked their whole destination wedding for a private home venue on the east side of the island. But if you recall, last summer Kiluea erupted with rifts all over the east side of the island, and their planned venue had to close due to the lava flows.

Because all of their family and friends had already booked their travel, Sami and Taku had to find a new venue, and thankfully they found us!

It was a very very quick turnaround, but we pulled it off and had this whole wedding planned in just a couple months! Thankfully Sami and Taku are a super relaxed couple and it was no problem to book them great vendors who executed a vision that was perfect for their day.
