Continuing with the Kauai wedding professionals interviews, host Kahu Kalehua Featheran talks stories with Brad Zacek of Orchid Alley and Mona Gonzaludo of Plantation Gardens Restaurant.

One of the many beautiful orchids at Orchid Alley
Located in Kapaa, customers actually walk down a narrow walkway or Alley to get to Orchid Alley and once they get there, orchids of many different varieties and colors greet them.  Owners, Fely and Neill Sams bought the business 17 years ago from a retiring orchid vendor and today, their orchids are prize winners at the Farm Fair on Kauai.  Viewers enjoy photos of some of the many orchid plants that are available at Orchid Alley during the interview.

Brad, who came to a friend’s wedding in the year 2000 met the Sams when he came in to purchase some orchid plants to take home to New York.  He realized how much in demand these plants were when he sold out the 20 that he shipped home in just 30 minutes.  Fast forward and the present time finds Brad on staff at Orchid Alley as the designer for this thriving business.  With a degree in horticulture and landscape design, Brad takes his 20 years of experience in the business to create masterpieces with orchids as well as other flowers.

Since the business is also a state and federally certified nursery, Orchid Alley can ship the plants or blooms to the mainland and other destinations as well.  Whether the orchid plants become centerpieces, gifts to family and friends, or if the orchid flowers are used for the bride’s bouquet, corsages or other floral pieces, she is in good hands with the good people at Orchid Alley.

Mona Gonzaludo of Plantation Gardens Restaurant
Kahu Kalehua moves to the town of Poipu for his second interview with Mona Gonzaludo of Plantation Gardens Restaurant.  Located on the old Koloa Sugar Mill’s manager’s residence, this venue retains the olu or comfortable feel of the old plantation days.  This venue can hold up to 50 guests seated for the ceremony and 130 to 300 guests for the reception, depending on whether the guests are seated or standing.

Mona will work with a couple with as little as 3 months notice.  She will also recommend wedding professionals if the couple would like some assistance, or she will work with whoever the wedding couple has retained.  Knowing that each couple has their own vision of their dream wedding, Mona is flexible and accommodating in working with the brides and grooms.

If the couple would also like accommodations for themselves or their guests, they can also call the Outrigger Kiahuna Plantation.  The Plantation Gardens Restaurant is located within this resort property.
