Thank you Aloha Ever After for making our wedding so special! Our guests were in awe of the beautiful centerpieces and all the decorations at our wedding.  Joel, Timory and Kalasara were very professional and helpful along the entire process. We planned this wedding from Dixon, CA via lots of phone calls, emails and texts messages with pictures.  Aloha Ever After made sure to address all my questions, gave me so many suggestions and options, but always allowing me to make the choice of what I wanted. Our wedding was on July 14, 2019 and I am still getting compliments from our guests saying everything was perfect! I can't wait to see the photos from our big day! If you are looking for a wedding planning business that will listen to your wants and will do everything to make your big day special, look no further!Thank you Aloha Ever After! Our wedding was amazing thanks to you! Mahalo!! More...

Joel at Aloha Ever After was GREAT!!! Right from the start he had excellent communication and listened to exactly what we wanted and executed it to the "T". He even at the last minute per my request was able to get a bouquet for my lovely bride. Beautiful beach setting with an authentic Hawaiian wedding ceremony. Great passages and quotes during the ceremony. He was very meticulous with his photography afterwards and just made our wedding filled with very fond memories that will last forever. I highly recommend Aloha Ever After for any couple looking to get married with someone who truly cares about what it is he is doing. Thank you so much Joel, Mr. & Mrs. Woodland More...

Joel and Timory were perfect wedding planners. From the very first phone call to the beautiful photos received, the service was personalized, efficient and excellent. The ala carte menu offered is ideal for making your wedding your very own. Joel was the ultimate minister and Timory was the best photographer ever! We are a lesbian couple, middle aged (well, maybe a little more than middle aged) and were made to feel like this was the most important day of our 23 year relationship. There couldn't possibly be a better company than Aloha Ever After! More...

I'm late in writing this but I need to say.. Aloha Ever After is... The.. BEST!!! I don't know where to begin. When I first booked, they were gave a lot, and I mean A LOT of information and recommendations for ceremony/reception locations, flowers, how to wear your hair, you name it! Their flower and wedding package exceptions are great and they're will to tailor it to your preference. I brought my own silk flowers but they were super flexible when I had to needed to order leis last minute. Planning an out of state was daunting at first but their wealth of options, information, and GREAT communication made it so easy. We got married on Hanalei Bay on a September Saturday morning and everyone remarked how wonderful Joel was as our officiant. He truly has the aloha spirit and led a serene and harmonious ceremony. Thanks to Aloha Ever After, my wedding day was more magical than I could have ever imagined. Mahalo Joel! Do not wait, book Aloha Ever After NOW! More...

We eloped in Hawaii recently and Joel and Timory were amazing. The weather on the day wasn't co-operating and Joel helped find us a new location at short notice that was simply perfect.
Joel made our ceremony so special, personalised and professional and we were very happy with the result. Timory did wonderful photos on a windy and very overcast day and they have turned out amazing!

Highly recommend them both as everything was so perfect!

Timory did a family photo for 8 on the beach in Poipu and the pictures are amazing. She is great to work with. I would highly recommend her!

They were excellent! Couldn't have asked for a better ceremony than what Joel gave us, and the pictures turned out great! Thank you Joel and Timory!

Phenomenal coordination and a magically awesome ceremony!  We enlisted Aloha Ever After to help us plan our elopement to Kauai for a beach wedding. They were recommended by the "The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook". We live in Florida and had never been to Hawaii so we needed help! We also had a special request- we wanted to find a pastor that would hike 2 miles on a challenging trail to a secluded beach. We received a prompt return call from Pastor Joel who happens to be a hiking enthusiast and agreed to our plan! He also found a photographer who was willing to join us! But Mother Nature had other plans. Two weeks before the wedding the trail was washed out by the worst storm in over 100 years. Joel came to our rescue with other possible venues. We decided on Hanalei Bay and we think it was even better than our first choice. The ceremony blew us away. Joel skillfully joined a number of Hawaiian wedding customs with words of wisdom, insightful thoughts on relationships, and humor. Joel is a very genuine and caring person. He is also very detail oriented and professional when it came to coordinating for the wedding license and other services (floral, photographer, hair, etc.). We are so appreciative for Joel and all that he did to help make our Kauai wedding spectacular! Mahalo Joel! More...

Joel, from AlohaEverAfter, was very professional, supportive and helpful, making himself available at all times. Every detail was handled and contingencies planned and executed, from completing proper applications, beach and site reservations to arranging for hair appointments. The wedding itself, was beautiful and simple, set in a lush romantic environment and conducted with a nice blending of humor and insightful thoughts. AlohaEverAfter was worth ever penny spent.

Joel was beyond accommodating throughout the wedding planning process. He answered any questions that we had in a very timely manner and was always available to assist us. There was no pressure to add on items to the package that we did not desire and he was willing to customize the packages to meet our needs. Joel was enthusiastic, caring and considerate, and truly does his best to make your dreams come alive. I wholeheartedly recommend his services. Thank you so much! More...

I worked with Timory to plan a surprise proposal for my girlfriend (now fiance!). The proposal turned out perfectly in large part to Timory's professionalism, hard work, great communication and creative ideas. The cost is a little expensive, but it is well worth it if you want your proposal to go well. It all greatly reduces the stress level to have someone there who knows what they are doing and can help setup a romantic scene for your proposal. Right after the proposal and photo-shoot, Timory showed us a preview of the pictures she took and they looked absolutely beautiful. She knows exactly what to do in order to create the perfect pictures to capture the perfect moments. I highly recommend working with Timory and Joel! More...

We wanted a simple, intimate ceremony at sunrise and Joel did just that. His services were perfect, giving us time to stop and just take in our moment. It was perfect and beautiful! Mahalo Joel! More...

Timory delivered! I popped the question to my girlfriend on a remote beach in Poipu and wanted someone who would not only capture the moment, but help me make it extra special. Timory did just that. Not only is she a photographer, but also an engagement consultant. Her enthusiasm, responsiveness, and creativity was fantastic. From flowers to champagne toasts, she took care of all the logistics and made our evening incredibly memorable. Six stars! More...

Aloha Ever After, Timory and Joel, did our wedding planning and photography (Timory) for our wedding here on Kauai. We had our wedding at Kauai Beach Resort with about 50 guests. We had our ceremony on the beach and the reception in a tent on the lawn area.
Timory did a great job communicating throughout the entire journey of planning up until the wedding and made sure everything went smoothly on the wedding day. I let her know my budget up front and not one time was I pressured to go above (which I feel is rare with a wedding coordinator/planner). We absolutely loved our setup/tent, decor, cake and DJ (DJ mike) that she hired and worked with. Everything looked amazing with the beach right next to us and the lighting and the way the colors were put together.
By the end of the night we had everyone raving how great everything was! Every guest was having the best time and the groom and I were extremely happy! It is an incredible feeling at the end of the night knowing there is not one thing you would have wanted differently-huge thanks to Timory and Joel for that! They really care about the bride/groom and are willing to go above and beyond to make the day special and flawless! As we just got married, as soon as we get our pictures back, we will let you all review readers know how the photography turns out!
Huge thanks to Aloha Ever After for making our special day everything and more that we could have wanted!

From the moment I contacted Aloha Ever After and spoke with Joel, he understood my wishes and helped plan every aspect of the wedding and ceremony. The communication over the past few months was excellent. On the day of our wedding we were planning to go to Anahola Beach, unfortunately it began to rain hard and wouldn't let up. It was raining on most areas of the island and we were unfamiliar with the island. Joel and Timory gave us options to relocate the ceremony or even change the day and when we insisted on keeping the day they helped us find a location that had a pavilion. It turned out to be a stunning location on Lydgate Beach. The ceremony that Joel performed was beautiful and felt like it was tailored to us. The ceremony was very special and intimate. We couldn't be more grateful that Joel and Timory were a part of our special day and I would like to give a big thanks and high review on the musician that they chose, Amy. The pictures came out beautiful and the overall experience was perfect. If you are thinking about using Aloha Ever After no need to look anywhere else! Thank you so much for making our special day perfect. More...

Timory was extremely helpful in planning an amazing proposal in Kauai! She worked diligently to help me evaluate different ideas and locations to make my future wife's dream proposal come true. Even as different factors changed, Timory communicated appropriately to make sure our understanding of the plans were consistent with one another. She certainly went above and beyond to plan and set up the perfect surprise proposal! Even without seeing the photos yet (which I'm sure will be outstanding), I am confident in Timory's ability to make your proposal dreams come true on the island of Kauai! More...

Timory was amazing with our family photo shoot! She was so great with our children (ages 5 and 8), and went with the flow with our energetic 5 year old son. She made it easy and fun for the kids and was very personable. THANK YOU ALOHA EVER AFTER! More...

Joel was amazing to work with!! I am a detail person, and he responded to every one of my calls and emails promptly, making sure that all of the details were taken care of and my questions were answered. He was prompt on the day of our ceremony, and our ceremony was just perfect! He allowed us to make it whatever we wanted it to be, and it was awesome! My flowers were beautiful! Joel and Timory will do as much or as little as you want them to do. Whatever details or services you want taken care of, they can address. I would highly recommend the personalized service Timory and Joel provide!! More...

The musician, videographer, and pastor also we all great! I was completely nervous and Timory made me feel at ease and made my wedding day one that I will never forget!

Timory, Joel and Caitlyn were wonderful to work with. Pictures by Timory are beautiful, Caitlyn was amazing to work with for hair and makeup and Joel made our ceremony beautiful and unforgettable. Timory also pulled our 2 year old out of the ocean when he took a tumble during pictures. Getting herself wet to save my son and my dress!! We couldn't ask for a better group to coordinate our wedding. More...

We're really grateful for the amazing job Aloha Ever After did arranging, executing and photographing our family gathering to celebrate our parents' 50th anniversary.

Here are some things that really stood out as important to me.
- How we found them: We interviewed 3 or 4 different event coordinators by phone from the mainland. Aloha Ever After were the only ones that clearly got what we were trying to achieve, and were so warm, engaging and intuitive by phone that we immediately knew we could trust them and would enjoy working with them. (We were completely right, for the record.)
- The plan for the ceremony evolved as we discussed it with Caitlin, and ended up being far more...well, everything, than we could ever have conceived on our own.
- The ceremony itself, cowritten with Joel, was thoughtful, gentle, meaningful and eloquent. Joel had just the right demeanor - a mix of gravitas, warmth and cheer - to make the ceremony really special. It was so well done that it brought most of the family to tears with joy and love.
- The floral arrangements (made personally by Caitlin) and overall decor for the dinner were simply spectacular - fresh, elegant, lush, tropical and stunning. Accompanied by subtle, thoughtfully conceived lighting and accents, the decor was a work of art.
- The dinner and dessert were, by request, pretty complicated, but were handled wonderfully. The quality of the food was superb, and the service and timing of service were graceful and inconspicuous.
- The photography was simply spectacular in its outcome. Timory has a wonderful, intuitive eye for seeing just the right pose or just the right spontaneous moment to perfectly capture not just image but feeling. She also had a great knowledge of the event location and the island environs, and chose just the right settings, backgrounds and locations for our group photos. We can't imagine having better photographic reminders of our ceremony, dinner and family poses.

Dear Joel and Timory of Aloha Ever After,

Two weeks ago today was the happiest day in our lives! Both of you were a part of that and you will always have a special place in our hearts. We received our pics and are so very pleased with how they turned out! We are so grateful we chose Aloha Ever After for our wedding!

Mahalo and many blessings to your family,

Kathy & Nancy

We used Aloha Ever After for our wedding October 2014 and were very pleased with the service we received. We planned everything online or telephone. Timory and Joel went above and beyond to make sure our day was very special. The attention she gave to details was amazing and you just won't find a kind or sweeter person to work with, I was so nervous and she took that right away. The photographs were beautiful and so natural looking, she absolutely captured our personalities. I highly recommend Aloha Ever After as your wedding planner and  for your photography needs!

"Thank you SO much for helping create the most wonderful, laid back, best day of our lives!  Mia did such a great job with my hair and makeup! As you know great photography was one of my "top 3" things I wanted for the day.  Not going to lie I was a tad worried just cause I hadn't seen many of Eugenia's photos, but I was and am overjoyed with her amazing photos and how comfortable she made the whole family feel!  She also was able to stay an extra hour upon request yay! My family Brian and I really couldn't be happier.  Thanks again for an amazing day!!!" More...

Timory and Joel of Aloha Ever After made planning a wedding thousands of miles away a piece of cake! Through numerous emails and phone calls Timory and Joel took care of everything! When the leis we'd wanted weren't available after a hurricane (good enough excuse lol) Timory got together with the florist for fantastic replacements! I don't know how many times I said "Why do people get so stressed out over a wedding!". We were so relaxed we got to actually enjoy the whole ceremony! They helped us select a nice little area on the beach during sunset, musician, photographs taken along with lots of laugh. Mahalo for making our special day just that much more special!! We will be pass you name along to anyone saying they'd like to get married on Kauai!! Aloha Sue and Sandy More...

My partner and I had a more elaborate wedding ceremony and reception in Atlanta, Georgia with family and friends and then flew to Hawaii for our honeymoon and civil ceremony. We wanted something simple, yet lovely, and Joel and Timory delivered without a doubt. They made the process simple, but it was imbued with meaning and the importance that such a moment should have. Our pictures are lovely, and we received them back with lightning speed. A million thanks to these two for making our civil ceremony everything we could have asked for! More...



1 September 2014

We are so glad we went with Aloha Ever After! They worked with us in every aspect. They were very helpful, kind, patient, and creative with pictures. We had people of all ages from 2 to 80 and knew just what to do to make everyone have a wonderful time. They are lovely people and wouldn't change anything for the world. Thank you so much for being such wonderful people to work with. Mahalo! The Humble Family More...

Aloha Ever After, and specifically owner and photographer Timory McDonald, did a great job for us. What a fantastic company to use for all of your wedding needs! We got married on 11/11/13 on Kauai, and Timory was our angel throughout the entire process. She organized everything from the photography, videography and photo booth to the beautiful custom centerpieces. Timory is extremely efficient and pays very close attention to detail, which all brides know is very important on the big day. Beside her in-depth professionalism, she also played a coaching role for the entire bridal party throughout the day, which was very welcomed with her sweet nature and years of experience with weddings. She went above and beyond to keep all worries behind the scenes unknown to us so we could be peaceful and enlightened until the very last dance at the end of the night. We cannot thank her and her team enough for making our wedding day the happiest day of our lives! Mahalo! More...

Tiimory at Aloha Ever After is truly an Angel! I used her and her associates for photography, videography, and photo booth for our wedding in Kauai on 11/11/13. She went above and beyond our expectations! Her attention to detail, considerate mannerism, and sweet heart really is an asset to any event... especially the big day! Our photos were superb, the video makes me cry like a baby everytime, and the photo booth pictures are absolutely hilariously fun! Please do not settle for any other option... Timory is definitely the only choice for photography (and any kind of wedding support) in Kauai!!! More...

I found Aloha Ever After through google search and I contacted them by email. Kimberli responded to my email and also contacted me over the phone. She was very resourceful and gave us ideas and options for the type of wedding we were looking for. We picked the Simple Yet Elegant Wedding and they took care of all the appointments for us including the bouquets, leis, and gave us a break down list of the officiant's that you choose to do your wedding and among other things. Kimberli, and I exchanged emails and phone calls and was answering my questions on weekends and on her days off. I also requested for a make up artist last minute and they found an awesome hair and make up artist for me. They are very detailed and I received all of the information I needed a week before the wedding and was readily available the day before and on that day of our wedding making sure that we do not get lost. If you do get lost they will accommodate the spot of where you want to get married just as long as its on the same Location and not a sacred ground. Timory our photographer was awesome, experience and very professional. Overall, my wedding was stress free and our friends enjoyed our small but intimate wedding. I would definitely recommend Aloha Ever After to friends who are getting married in Kauai. More...

Kimberli helped me plan my beautiful wedding in Kauai and it was perfect.  We also planned the entire wedding via email, and it couldn't have gone better.  The hair and makeup artist that they had booked for me was amazing, and our photographer was not Timory but she was great as well.  There were a few things that kept me from giving Aloha Ever After 5 stars - when I sent in the final amount 30 days prior to the wedding, it was a few days before they had confirmed receipt of the payment (Kimberli explained afterwards that she was off and didn't have wireless access), but I did wish that somebody could have confirmed receipt of the payment.  We were also hoping to have a back up plan in place, just in case of rain (the forecast called for rain all week).  Normally, it woudln't have been a big deal, but because we had to drive about 20 minutes through unpaved road to get to our beach, I wasn't sure what would happen if it did rain - which thankfully it poured the night before but was beautiful on our wedding day.  Overall, I like the packages offered by Aloha Ever After and I liked the fact that you could take away or add anything you wanted from their a la carte menu.  Thank you so much Kimberli!

I attended a wedding that was planned by Aloha Ever After and was floored by how wonderful it was.  The coordinator made a simple beach wedding seem glamorous and beautiful (and amazingly comfortable too.)  As far as I could tell every detail was taken care of; flowers, music, bathrooms (important for an outdoor wedding), childcare and entertainment.Although I have no plans on getting married anytime in the near future, if I did and it was going to be on Kauai, I would definitely use Aloha Ever After.
