Host Kahu Kalehua Featheran begins this show with acknowledgements to photographers Dave Miyamoto & Company, LiquidLightImages and Hawaiianpix and videographers Stuart Featheran, Jr and Propeller USA – members of; a one stop virtual wedding and event resource center.

It’s a windy day at Kawaikui Beach when Kalehua welcomes Darcie Wharton of Royal Weddings By Lavender and Royal Sweets & Treats.  Among other topics, Darcie presents two major reasons why a bride should hire a wedding coordinator or planner like herself.  First, by hiring a professional wedding coordinator, everyone can enjoy the special day, including friends and relatives who would otherwise be helping with your wedding.  Second, there is so much information out there on the internet, it pats to have a professional wedding coordinator help you find the right person to handle every wedding service and product need instead of the bride sorting through all of that information herself.  Darcie likes to earn the trust of every couple that she works with so when the wedding day arrives, they can relax and enjoy it to the fullest.

Royal Weddings By Lavender also offers Royal Sweets & Treats – a buffet of sweets, which can also include healthy offerings like yogurt, coated pretzels and dried fruits…a great alternate to candies!

Returning from break, Kahu Kalehua reminds viewers to call Kahala Limo and Platinum Limousine for your limousine and transportation needs; they are also members of

On the second interview, Kahu Kalehua greets Gabe Gongob of Royal Entertainment, who explains that “Royal” is in Darcie and his business names because they want to treat their clients like royalty.  With close to 20 years experience as a DJ and boasting a library of 100,000 songs, Gabe is able to provide almost any song that a client can request from all over the world.

He loves it when everyone gets up onto the dance floor and uses his many years of experience and music savvy to pick just the right tunes to get everyone up and dancing.  Gabe also can double as emcee, and he can provide all of the equipment, lighting and set up to create just the right musical ambiance for any event.
