This local couple had their beautiful ceremony at the Aulani and you can truly see their LOVE shine in the awesome same day edit provided by 10th Letter Media. Check out this TOTALLY SMITTEN couple's beginning to their HAPPILY EVER AFTER. Congrats Shelley and Trace!


Dear Kelly and staff,

Thank you so much for being an integral part of our wedding! It was the most magical day of our lives and we were able to enjoy every minute of it thanks to your hard work. We truly appreciate all the effort and time that you've dedicated to our wedding. What you and your team do is truly something special – you make it possible for brides and grooms to relax and savor their wedding experience.

Thank you for keeping us hydrated and on schedule throughout the entire day and for communicating with our vendors. Everything went smoothly and our guests felt like this was one of the best weddings that they ever attended. They were amazed at how well the program flowed and how much thought was put into the planning process.

We are so glad Shawn & Shanna Usami talked us into hiring a wedding coordinator because you gave us peace of mind throughout this entire experience. Thank you for helping us deal with the minor bumps that we encountered along the way and for being a sounding board of ideas and inspiration. Trace is so thankful that he listened to me about hiring a wedding coordinator because in his words, “This was the best decision we made.” In fact, he now recommends our engaged friends to think about hiring a wedding coordinator/day of coordination because even though it adds to your wedding budget, the outcome is priceless.  

Again, thank you so much for all that you've done to make our wedding truly a perfect day. While your company is now Fred+Kate, we know that your staff will still deliver a perfect day for your clients. Thank you for being a part of our happily ever after. It would not have been possible without your services.

Love,
Shelley and Trace Lau

Flower Power...

December 07, 2012

Gorgeous, jaw-dropping florals are a show stopper at any wedding, but we also love unique, creative uses of decor and non-floral pieces to create your wedding vision. That's why we're smitten with Passion Roots... a full service floral and event design company. We're even MORE smitten with Passion Roots because they offer a very special deal to Fred+Kate brides (YAY!). Score a sweet deal! Spend up to $2500 and receive $100 of FREE rentals. Spend over $2500 and receive $250 of FREE rentals. Kudos to Shilhi and the Passion Roots crew! Gorgeous weddings await...

PS: Owner Shilhi devotes Saturdays for her family (LOVE!) and religion, and does not book any Saturday events. But if you're having your wedding on any other day of week, check them out!
