Born into a family of fashion, Jill Cullinan of Princess Kaiulani Fashions and Bridal Collections is Kahu Kalehua Featheran’s first guest.  Started in 1959 by her parents, Jill joined the company 25 years ago and began offering bridal gowns to island and destination brides.  Princess Kaiulani Fashion strives to preserve the island fashions of old Hawaii, as well as the updated interpretations of current fashions with a Hawaiian theme.  Every gown is custom made and clients may choose the style, type of fabric (a poly cotton with Hawaiian prints or various fabrics that can be hand-screened with exclusive designs). 

Though Jill’s preference is to have at least 6 to 8 weeks lead time, she is also happy to accommodate last minute orders because she enjoys working with each customer.  Viewers are treated to photos of some of the many styles that are available at Princess Kaiulani Fashions and Bridal Collections. members Celebrity Tuxedos (tuxedo), Flower Designs by Yuki (bouquet), Mana’o I’o (kahili and lei po’o) and the JW Marriott all supported Jill with their products and venue.

In Hawaii, a wedding reception is synonymous with luau and Kahu Kalehua’s second guest is Paulette Watson of Germaine’s  “Too Good To Miss” Luau.  Tune in to hear Paulette’s story of how she began dancing professionally after just 4 dance lessons and became the featured dance for Tavana.

Though this interview took place at Magic Island, Germaine’s Luau is located on the west side of the island, where the gorgeous sunsets often serve as background for wedding photos.  Viewers share the evening with newlyweds Dan and Marie Schultz from Minnesota, as they celebrate with family and friends at their wedding reception at Germaine’s Luau.  From being greeted on arrival, to photo taking with the ocean and Barber’s Point lighthouse as backdrops, to the Royal Court introduction, imu ceremony, hula teach, dinner, a musical journey through Polynesia, to the first dance by the wedding couple to the Hawaiian Wedding Song, Germaine’s Luau makes every effort to provide the couple with a memorable wedding reception.  And, at closing, a testimonial from the wedding couple and their family – a great close to a wonderful evening.
