Our daughter was married there last month. Confident, calm and collected, Jenna Giles, the wedding coordinator helped us put together a sweet little, yet gorgeous, ceremony and memorably fun-filled and beautiful evening reception - a months worth of planning and coordinating that culminated in a fabulous time for about 80 of our families and friends.
Music, flowers, food, drinks, ceremony site - nothing was less than a warm "Hawaiian perfect" (well, okay, we would have enjoyed a nice breeze at the reception site).
Now that the wedding is over we are looking forward to returning. Ulu, the Beechtree, the beautiful grounds, pools... and the whole staff - all were welcoming and relaxing. A very beautiful experience.
The only thing I will do different next time is get a room in a better location. Room 2010 was a beauty inside and with a decent view - but (and this is my only but) it is to the rear of the Beechtree restaurant and grill. At night, when we went to open the balcony doors so we could hear the ocean, all we could hear was the restaurant venting (it was tucked into the garden between our room and the restaurant). It was only obvious at nights - and once during a day when some smoke and BBQ wafted out !
So - I'll be a little more choosey about the room location - but I'm in.! Best "vacation" and wedding ever!
Thanks so much, Jenna. You and your crews made it all look so easy. You're tops in our book :-)
