Hawaii's Wedding Professionals Episode #17 on OC16 - Hale Koa Hotel and Windward Jewelers

Aloha wedding couples, wedding planners and other interested vendors!!

This month we are filming on Maui, plus our second couple for the reality show called “Down the Aisle on an Isle”.  It scheduled to air on OC16 starting March 2011 with bigger surprises to follow.  If any of your clients or you know of any wedding couples who would like to be on the reality show, let me know (see below in pink for more info).

Here’s what our show can do for you.

Wedding couples – save up to 70% of your entire wedding expenses.  Wedding vendors and wedding planners – save up to 90% of costs for television, live streaming and 24/7 viewing access via OC16.  Hopefully, you’ve seen our show and see the quality and value in it.  Starting early next year, in addition to OC16 we plan to air the show on the west coast, once a week reaching 2.6 million homes for our destination weddings through ION Media who owns and operates the largest television station group in the US, reaching 98 million homes.  Join us!

We are proud to sponsor our third professional on Hawaii’s Wedding Professionals, Kalena Paty Photography for the month of October.  We are pleased to sponsor them with $6,700.00 worth of advertising on our television show on OC16 and will continue to support other companies or individuals by offering them sponsorships too!!

Dora Young and Lucy Lau of Hale Koa Hotel
Host Kahu Kalehua Featheran dispels the myth that the Hale Koa Hotel facilities are only for members of the military.  Marketing Coordinator Lucy Lau explains that the use of the hotel facilities are for the military and their families, but she also adds that 1 out of 2 households in Hawaii could use the services of the Hale Koa Hotel because they can be sponsored by an eligible active or retired military personnel or Department of Defense member.  How great is that?

The Hale Koa Hotel is at the gateway of Waikiki and offers lots of parking.  Catering Manager Dora Young talks about the 3 venues for wedding ceremonies while viewers can see photos of the locations - the Maile Tower Gazebo is available for small, short, informal ceremonies and the Luau Gardens and Maile Gardens are for more formal and elaborate ceremonies.  The latter two locations require that the couple also cater their reception at the Hale Koa Hotel.  Menu prices and wedding services can be found by going to the Hale Koa Hotel website and clicking on the Catering tab.

For couples who need guidance, the Hale Koa Hotel works with a number of local wedding professionals and can refer you to some of their preferred vendors, but the bride and groom can also use any vendor of their choosing.  Dora will ask the couple for a date, the number of guests expected and whether they want to do only the ceremony, or both the ceremony and reception.  From there, she can make recommendations and also work with the couple’s budget.  The one great benefit of holding your wedding and reception at the Hale Koa Hotel is that they are a federal facility with tax exempt status so couples need not pay the Hawaii general excise tax…which can be a great savings for couples just starting out in married life.

Hella Allerstorfer-Meek of Windward Jewelers 
For his second guest, Kahu Kalehua chats with Hella Allerstorfer-Meek, award winning designer and goldsmith for Windward Jewelers.  Windward Jewelers began their business in 1954.  Hella’s Dad, Herman Meek bought the company in 1966 (44 years ago) and Hella came into the business in 1980.  This family’s business spans 3 generations as Hella’s daughter,

Amber is also studying jewelry design and entomology.  Viewers see some of the beautiful and unique designs created by Windward Jewelers as the interview progresses.

As designers, Windward Jewelers are able to create unique wedding rings for brides and grooms.  For those who aren’t sure where to start, Hella will ask the bride to think about what really excited her about a particular ring she saw and what it looked like and they can start from there…or the couple can view designs and styles at the store and suggest changes that they would like to see for their own rings.  The Lanikai Collection is an original design of Windward Jewelers and is particularly meaningful to couples who decide to get married on the beach at Lanikai.  To help the newlyweds, Windward Jewelers offer layaway plans and this information is available on their website.

Windward Jewelers is also pleased to introduce their Red Box brand.  These diamonds are conflict free (they are not mined in countries where there are conflicts), they can be traded up for a larger diamond, they have an inscription which matches the certificate and thy com with a one year free loss protection.
