As the show opens, Kahu Kalehua Featheran and Rick Rock, Marketing Director for Platinum Limousine look like they’re standing inside of a huge limo…it’s actually the sliding doors of Platinum Limousine’s office and Platinum Rooms at Aloha Tower Marketplace.  With 20 years of business experience and 40 cars in their fleet, Platinum Limousine can accommodate transportation requests from personal cars to SUVs, Hummers, stretch limos and even party buses – something to fit every style!  Add to that, they now have the Platinum Rooms that opened earlier this year, which accommodates up to 200 guests.  These rooms are great for private parties, corporate functions, training sessions and workshops and yes, engagements parties and wedding receptions, too.

In the second interview, Kalehua is joined by Stevie Lynn Kumia and Kristy Watanabe of Best Bridal Hawaii.  With the exquisite Ocean Crystal Chapel in the background, Best Bridal Hawaii offers destination and local wedding couples both indoor and outdoor venues in their 7 wedding locations.  This is where the bride decides – from wedding packages to ala carte choices, from a preferred vendor list to bringing their own vendors into the planning, Best Bridal Hawaii is ready to assist bridal couples in planning every step of their wedding day.

Can you really call it work if you get to wear aloha shirts and shorts on the job and your office is Sandy Beach?  Well you can if you’re David Kupono Fong and Host Kahu Kalehua Featheran!

Sandy Beach is where Kupono and his beautiful wife, Ciera got married in a sunrise ceremony 2 years ago, and did their first live stream to family and friends away from Hawaii.  Encouraged by the feedback of family and friends, they took a leap of faith and started Stream It Live Online.  Their clients include wedding couples, people celebrating special events, military personnel away from home, and businesses.  The broadcast being filmed by battery operated, mobile equipment can be seen by anyone around the world who has internet access.  It can be pass-word protected or not and the exciting news is that people with Android or Apple IOS devices can also pick up the broadcast on their cell phones!

Kahu Kalehua’s second guest is long-time friend and business partner, Eileen Abe of Mana’o I’o (fine hand crafted products for weddings and all occasions) and Italian Greyhound, Roo.  Why would a bride order a silk bouquet instead of fresh flowers?  It’s so they can toss their fresh floral bouquet at the reception and keep their silk bouquet as a momento of their special day.  And, if they want a special gift or wish to add tradition to their event, a kahili is a good idea.  Often connected in the past with royalty, kahilis could be identified by design with different families.  Eileen creates the kahilis in traditional or updated designs to fit every occasion.

Wedding couples interested in a great venue need to tune in and hear Kahu Kalehua Featheran’s first guest, Raymond Donato, Director of Wedding Sales and Events at the JW Marriott Ihilani Resort and Spa share in his own words, his love and genuine service orientation towards all of his clients.  With 20 years of experience at the JW Marriott, Raymond provides a complimentary consultation which provides clients with much information and ideas.  The JW Marriott Ihilani Resort and Spa has an oceanfront or gazebo wedding venue, accommodating 200 and 60 guests respectively, as well as 387 rooms (37 of them suites), a spa with a private bridal salon, 3 wonderful restaurants, ballrooms that can hold up to 900 guests and the spectacular sunsets of the west side of the island.  Although the choice of many destination couples, the JW Marriott Ihilani Resort and Spa is a smart choice for local people as well, who can enjoy a neighbor island feel without leaving Oahu.  Raymond often serves as a minister or emcee for his wedding couples, who now consider Raymond not only their wedding consultant, but a friend as well.

The second segment features Mila Troutman of Milaniko wedding apparel.  Milaniko offers European fashions of traditional Ukranian quality.  A tailor with 20 years of experience, Mila has also passed on her fashion sense to son, Niko or Nick who is currently in charge of design production of the wedding gowns in the Ukraine.  Made by hand from start to finish, Milaniko’s wedding gowns are made with Italian satin, French lace and hand beading and embroidery.  All of the gowns are made to order and prices are extremely affordable – you have to watch this show to hear the price ranges and once you do, a visit to Milaniko will be on the top of your list.  For brides who wish to rent their wedding gowns, Milaniko also offers this service and gowns can be rented for 3 days.  Milaniko is working on a tuxedo line made with 100% wool and Italian fabrics, with the largest and most reputable Turkish textile manufacturer and businesses who are interested in purchasing wedding gowns or tuxedos in bulk can call Mila to make an appointment to discuss this opportunity. 

Kalehua’s third guest is Gilbert Magbual, owner and DJ of N-D Mixx Productions, a family-run business, with wife Fran and his daughter and son all helping out.  2011 marks Gil’s 20th successful year in the DJ business.  His vast library of songs numbers 75,000 and if his client wants a song that he doesn’t have, Gil will go out of his way to find that song for his client.  Gil can set up sound and lighting for an intimate group of 20 guests to large wedding receptions and corporate functions of 2,000 guests or more.  Gil likes to have his bride and groom be the star at their own wedding, so his motto is “your music, your way”.

They have the only 10 passenger limo in Hawaii with 2 Lamborghini doors, a Bentley grill, 22-inch exterior rims, an interior disco floor, laser light show, 3 LCD TVs and seats made from ostrich feathers.  Add to this, great service from the Asuncion family (Ann, Lino, Christine, Michael and Catherine), who owns and operates this business and you can understand why Barons Limousine takes reservations for up to a year in advance!!

When you do 700 plus weddings a year, you have to love what you’re doing and that’s true of Della Peacock of Dellables.  Della has always loved flowers and it’s evident in the unique and exquisite designs that she comes up with for her brides – from bouquets to arrangements to arches, her many beautiful designs are inspired by her conversations with her wedding couples.  She is knowledgeable about what flowers are in season, what looks good in the venue of choice, which blooms are hardy and will hold up in the Hawaii climate.  Tune in to hear Della share a lovely story about a recent wedding and how she was able to personalize her design based on getting to know the wedding couple and what was important to them.
