Here’s what others are saying:
I am embarassed that I am just writing to you now 3 months after our wedding, but this is Sonja Johnson Taylor out here in CA. I am actually sitting here in the Social Security office right now to start the process of changing my name and I realized that I never personally thanked you for the most beautiful wedding! It was everything we had ever hoped for and more. Amy was wonderful and so helpful. The music, the flowers!!! My bouquet was more gorgeous than I ever could have imagined it would be! The photos and the wedding video are so beautiful and so special! You truly have some wonderful vendors- we were so impressed with all of it. As you may remember, it poured rain that day and it ended up adding so much to both the ceremony and reception- it made it very romantic- hearing the rain outside as we said our vows from inside the living room and when it had gotten dark- the sounds of the rain as we sat on the covered lanai for the reception added such an incredible ambiance. I will never forget it. Thank you for everything, Jill!
– Sonja (and Richard) Taylor
Carl and I just wanted to thank you for everything you did for our wedding. Our wedding day was the most special day of our lives for both of us and you did an excellent job creating it. We don’t even have words to express how thankful we are at how it all turned out. We were so blessed to have met you and we will never forget you. The photography has just arrived and they are the best pictures we have ever had taken of us, of course it did help that we were gleaming ear to ear with happiness from the big day.
Thank you so much for being apart of our wedding. I wish you and your family much happiness!– Frances
It’s Kristen Pomeroy’s mom. I just wanted to thank you for all you did to make the wedding as beautiful as it was. The clergy you selected was perfect as was the guitarist. I can’t wait to see the pictures and video. You even arranged for the rain to hold off until after the ceremony! It was hard planning a destination wedding; we needed to place all of our trust in someone we had never met but you exceeded our expectations.
Thank you again or should I say mahalo!– Anne Pomeroy
Thank you sop much for all your hard work & dedication. It truly was the most special & beautiful day of our lives and much of it was thanks to you and your team. Please know that we will never forget you & that you are highly recommended by the new Mr.& Mrs. Jeremy Foster.– Aimee and Jeremy
Thank you so much for your guidance and soothing leadership throughout our wedding ceremony. We felt so happy to have you there – you really provided a seamless event. You will always be in our memories as a crucial part of our perfect day in paradise. It was truly the happiest day of our lives!– Katheryn & Ryan
Thank you SO much for your part in making our wedding so special. Despite the CRAZY weather, everything went beautifully, in large part because of all of your efforts and great service. Many, many thanks one more time for dealing with the two biggest wedding procrastinators on earth, and if you ever need a reference, we would be thrilled to provide it!– Sharna & Kim
Every little girl dreams about the perfect wedding. On 8/11 in Kauai I got so much more than I’ve ever even been capable of dreaming. That was the most beautiful, perfect wedding I could ever have hoped for. It exceeded all the expectations and I can never forget the beauty and magic of the whole experience. Thank you so much Jill for doing it without the blink of an eye. It was perfect because of you – and I’ll never forget you or your kindness.– Aimee & Steve
Thank you once again for all of your hard work and patience with us. We along with our families will be talking about the rehearsal and wedding/reception for a long time. More than one couple has come up to tell us that our wedding was better than their own, a true compliment. Hawaii took wonderful care of us. Our honeymoon went as well as the wedding. We wish you the best on your upcoming events.– Chase & Jamie
There are no words to express our gratitude & appreciation for all of your time, energy & experience. We are so over joyed that you have made this dream a reality. You’re so wonderful & we thank you from the depths of our hearts.– Tim & Nicole
You are the best!! A note of thanks for the wonderful job you did on this beach part & wedding.– Carole Lee
Thank you for all the work that you put into the wedding. We could not be more happy with how everything turned out. Our wedding surpassed all of our dreams.– Tauver and Jessica
Just wanted to drop you a note and thank you again for making our night so special for everyone. Everyone has just raved about how it all came together so well!! Thank you again for all your hard work.– Trish
Aloha Jill! We’re finally back at home (boo hoo); I just wanted to thank both you and Carole again for the wonderful job you did with our entire ceremony! Everything was beautiful, and NO stress! The only problem (and you told me it would be) was the restaurant. Of course, the “wonderful” manager gave away our reservations, so we had to wait about 1/2 hour for the next available table — oh well, the food and service were WONDERFUL, so what can you do? Of course, all our friends are clamoring to see the pics! Again, thank you a million times for making our wedding day a HUGE success!– Lori and Les
Aloha Jill, Thank you so much for arranging our perfect wedding in paradise on beautiful Mahaulepu Beach. We have just returned from our extended (Kauai-Maui-Colorado) honeymoon and celebrated our one month” anniversary with a champagne toast to you, Pastor Jim, your delightful son, and the kind young driver. Each of you will remain in our memories for your contributions to our very special perfect day.- Anon
Jill, it would be impossible for me to adequately express our thanks and gratitude for everything you did for us. At the grand Wailea on Maui, we witnessed from a distance, a lovely wedding performed at the beautiful little chapel on the hotel grounds. I photographed the wedding party and both the interior and exterior of the chapel. Just Perfection! I want you to know that in all of its perfection, we would not have exchange nearer-to-God ceremony on Mahaulepu for all the grandeur of that splendid display. You and our tiny wedding party were a special gift from God to us and we will be forever grateful for all your preparations and your valued friendship. We will remember each of you always.- Anon
I want to thank you again for everything you did to make our wedding and vacation such a huge success. Darrin and I had the time of our lives and we owe that in a large part to you! There is no possible way we could have had that kind of wedding (beautiful, elegant but absolutely no stress, all fun) without your help. Now that we are back in Seattle, every time we run in to an issue or something we can’t solve here at home, we laugh and say “maybe we should call Jill” (our favorite phrase in Kauai) … if only life was that easy!
Thanks again,- Kimberly and Darrin
Hi Jill! I just wanted to let you know how much John and I appreciated all of the work you and Carole did and how happy we were with everything. The flowers were beautiful, the cake was delicious, the food was great, the musicians were incredible….everything wasbetter than we expected. Thank you so much for making everything perfect for our wedding day!
Thanks again,- Kristin and John
Aloha!I just wanted to thank you for all that you have done for us. The wedding was amazing! Everything was much more than what I had thought it would be. The morning of the wedding, I kept feeling like I should be doing something to get ready for the wedding, but there wasnothing for me to do because you had everything in place for me. Other weddings, it always seems like there is alot of rushing around, but I did not havethat. I can not thank you enough for giving Brian and I our dream wedding!!
Mahalo,- Brian and Trish
What an amazing fairy tale you created for our wedding day! Thank you so much for coordinating the best day of our lives. Everything was more than we ever imagined. You allowed for an absolutely unforgettable ceremony for us. Completely flawless! Thank you, too for “putting up” with us the months prior! Please give our thanks to Carol and well.
Mahalo!- Lesley and Brian
We had a wonderful evening and I especially was SO GLAD to have Jill there to take care of everything!! The food, cake, location, minister, music, etc was all fantastic – thank you so much!! It was a beautiful and enjoyable evening!!- Lisa
Thank you very much for everything you did for the wedding. Everything was amazing and was more beautiful than we ever imagined. It was amazing to not having to worry about anything that day, everything was taken care of and fell into place.- Kim
Well, things have finally started calming down for K and me back in South Carolina. The wedding and vacation in Hawaii were everything we expected, and more. We had a wonderful time and made lasting memories. Our family and friends loved our personal pictures and none of us can wait to see the professional ones that Ron took.- Anon
Thank you so much for your help. Happy holidays and have a wonderful New Year!
Take care,- Alison
Thanks for everything it really was a fantastic day. Michael & I have been through quite a bit since we started dating – including my mother’s passing. We both felt the rain was very symbolic, kind of a clean slate! It was perfect!- Anon
If you can dream it, picture it and describe it, (as well as factor in a reasonable budget) in an exotic and epic place in Paradise like Kauai… Jill will make it happen for you! Jill from the start follows your lead into what you want, she makes it all happen, just tell her what you want, she can get it done. She addressed in detail each of our expectations and made our day the best of our lives! Every person we encountered was full of Aloha and genuine excitement! It really felt right, and we had many details in place and they all flowed together harmoniously, from the conch blower, to KoKo-(a genuine and sincere Hawaiian local whom I could feel the intensity and depth of the moment with), our wonderful slack guitarist, The Photographer and Videographer worked together, they alternated and really spent time with us to capture the moment, (forgive me on their names, just ask Jill), these gentleman were artistic and professional, and special guest performer local Tommy Tokioka and his lovely Hula dancer (please … and describe it, (as well as factor in a reasonable budget) in an exotic and epic place in Paradise like Kauai… Jill will make it happen for you!

He was a great MC and played all my, and the rest of our requests! Dinner was delicious and momentous, succulent prime rib, the setting was surreal, the table centerpieces, flowers, lighting, so many crystal candles, mood, ambiance, all of the details dreamlike! The Chocolate Coconut cake was divine! Drinks! Dancing, Family, Friends, Fun, you couldn't possible need more! The entire setting was to specific taste, and we had the best day of our lives so far! And so did our family, friends and guests! BIG MAHALOS for so much Aloha, and getting her done right! Mahalo! and Much Aloha! Good luck all!- BK and PK
Jill did an awesome job on our wedding . We had some mix ups along the way and she made everything happen. Can’t say enough about the job she did…. It was truly amazing, can’t imagine anyone else doing as good of job as she does. Thanks again Jill for everything!!!!!!- Lance and Erin
Because of Jill, we had the most beautiful wedding and now memories for our life time. If I had months to plan our wedding it would not have been as awsome!! We went to her on Tuesday at noon and she made our wedding happen by Wednesday at 10 am. Her suggestions were perfect and everything I thought of last minute she made sure happened. The minister she picked was even more than our expectations, he was so wonderful. We also needed our rings and she recommended a jeweler that was as gracious, caring and helpful as herself. Thank you for making our wedding TRULY a wedding in paradise!- Phil and Paul
I want to thank Jill for the wonderful job she did for us on our wedding. We had a great time and it was just beautiful. Everything she said we received we did and the music, photographer, and videographer were excellant. I have since received my pictures and my dvd of our wedding and was just beautiful. Our clergy was the best. He made us feel so relaxed. He did a great job. I would definitely recommend Jill as your wedding planner. She knows exactly how to plan your special day and to feel like you are the only ones that matter. Give Jill a try you will definitely be happy you did. We sure were. It was like a fairytale.- Ernie and Laurie Colelli
Our wedding was TRULY a fairytale wedding! We are very picky and we do lots of research! We picked Wedding In Paradise because of a recommendation from the travel agency. We flew to Kauai in September 2009 and got married on 09/09/09 at 9:00 am. Jill Kosen was the PERFECT wedding planner! She helped us in so many ways! She was always eager to help, and took the pain out of the planning for sure. There was never a silly question with Jill…she was always so reassuring. She picked the perfect pastor and helped us pick the perfect beach location! The ceremony was absolutely FLAWLESS!! The photography and video was AMAZING! Every time I watch the video, I cry tears of joy. It was produced with the PERFECT songs, some of which we had never even heard … We are very picky and we do lots of research!

Thank you Jill for giving us the wedding that most can only dream about! Sincerely,- Kimberly & Brian Smith
A little girl’s dream come true! I am writing on behalf of my daughter, who was recently wed in Kauai. She chose Jill Kosen and Wedding In Paradise to do the wedding. My daughter and her husband went alone, so it was very important for me to have pictures and a video, so that I could see my little girl getting married! More importantly, I wanted to see that she had the wedding she had always dreamt of. Jill and her crew definitely gave her that! The pictures were so good, and the video was just like I was there. I could see the happiness in my daughter’s eyes! Thank you so much for helping to make my little girl’s dream come true! Sincerely,- John Corprew
The Perfect Wedding in Paradise Jill Kosen did an absolutely perfect job, from smoothing over the little glitches (she devised a wonderful solution to the fact that we were one maile lei short) to attending to all the details that have to be made (which resulted in peace between bride and the MOB), to ordering up a perfect North Shore day (eighty degrees, sunny, and trade winds!) She made the occasion one to remember for a lifetime.- Alanna and Bill Bodenstab
