The latest review from Yelp. Thanks Holly and Ben
My husband and I wanted to renew our vows for our tenth wedding anniversary while we stayed on Kauai for our dream Hawaiian vacation. Since we had a fairly large wedding, an intimate, beachfront ceremony was just what we set out to plan for. After learning that our hotel would charge us $3000+ for the venue, photographer, and officiant, I quickly turned to the internet. Coconut Coast Weddings & Photography was the second link I clicked on in my Google search. From the minute the website came up and I began reading and looking at pictures, I knew instantly that it was the answer to my prayers! I e-mailed Kent and that afternoon (which happened to be Valentine’s Day) he called me and we hit it off over the phone. I was SO excited! We booked the Barefoot and Basics package which was everything I wanted and to top it off, Kent gave us a 10% discount just because it was Valentine’s Day! What an unexpected blessing! We got the date scheduled and left the decision of the location up to Kent since he knows the island well and we had never been there. As our special day approached, rain threatened the location Kent had chosen for us. He was able to reschedule the location with the officiant the day of the ceremony and we ended up having the most beautiful, sunny, wonderful setting! The ceremony itself was just what we wanted – a Christian, Hawaiian renewal complete with leis, re-dedication of our vows, sharing “aloha” together, re-blessing our rings, and a prayer for the future. As our ceremony was taking place, I was not even aware of Kent being in the background capturing all these special moments. Afterwards, as we posed in different spots, I knew Kent had a great eye for detail, angles, lighting, and poses. He has a personality that evokes confidence, passion, and having fun! After our 90 minutes was up, we said our goodbyes and I (very) anxiously waited for our photos to arrive. Two weeks later, I could not have been happier to see the AMAZING work that Kent did. He got shots that I had no idea he was taking during the ceremony, capturing details that I didn’t even remember! The posed shots were all wonderful ranging from happy to romantic to fun and most importantly captured the JOY in our hearts that day. We have had SO many compliments on our pictures and we couldn’t be happier with the entire experience! If you have any doubt about booking with Coconut Coast Weddings, let me encourage you to go for it! Kent’s work speaks for itself, but let me tell you that the man behind the work is professional, accommodating, reliable, thorough, kind, and highly talented. We are blessed to have found Coconut Coast Weddings! Thank you Kent for everything!
