Wedding Story

We originally started with a random thought and a dream of having a destination wedding in Hawaii, since we had always thought of going to Hawaii but had not made any specific plans for it as of then (early last year). Our intentions for the wedding celebrations were to spend time in beautiful naturally scenic surroundings, with the company of all our loved ones, enjoying the togetherness in a new place where we could all safely get to know each other while having fun! Our motivation for all the wedding events was to create a space for lifelong memories to form and bonds to strengthen among all of our family members... from both, the groom and bride's, sides. We wished to create a uniquely memorable ceremony, other traditional events around the ceremony, all intertwined with sightseeing activities in a new scenic place like Hawaii islands. This was the idea for our full family extravaganza!!

When we actually set out to execute the action steps for above intentions, we quickly ran into unknown territory. We realized that we are going to need some very specialized assistance and the hands of an angel to make this dream come true! We were in the midst of a lot of confusion when we found the contact for Noelia's company. Starting from the very first conversation with Noelia, I felt like we had found our angel! Noelia immediately recognized our challenges, the vision that we had in mind, and the resources we would need which she could offer. She had an amazing knack of building trust in our relationship, creating a win-win situation for our engagement with her team, and then continuously building it all to be stronger over time.

"It is a sweet challenge to even begin to thank Noelia and her team from Proficient Travel and I Do Destination Weddings for the huge contribution they were towards the success of our Indian traditional destination wedding trip in Hawaii islands !!"

Noelia took away all our confusion, overwhelm, uncertainties, and turned them into real solutions for us. Noelia and her team had the technical and professional skills like building rapport, negotiating contracts, finding best places to stay at and tour companies to use (within our budget guidelines), managing guests lists & RSVPs, creating a website for all the information to be in one place for our guests, managing rooms list, a million other details that came with all that we were out to accomplish.

 

Noelia was very organized, tracked every little detail, considered every single implication of any small change in plans, responded to every question we had, and always looked for better options for us in all situations. She exemplified integrity and was always timely in her follow ups - excellent communications & detailed updates. This is a quality we very much appreciated :))

 

For the wedding part, Noelia, Gyna, and the team were phenomenal in getting the best negotiations done for our 3 nights stay at Royal Lahaina Resort in Maui, Hawaii. A LOT of details and back and forth went into this, which they were ever ready to take on and tackle! All of our guests absolutely loved the stay at Royal Lahaina Resort!

For the tours and sightseeing days, we received quotes and exact options for best pricing and quick actions were taken for bookings. Every guest, ranging from young children (starting at 3 years)  to elderly (up to 90+ years), was accounted for and their needs accommodated for in the planning. All our guests enjoyed every tour we had, were safe and well taken care of throughout.

 

We had received a neatly put together master timeline with all relevant information for us and all our guests, in one place, which was superbly helpful towards the success of our entire trip!

 

Above all, Noelia became my ally, confidant, and a very special friend (more like an angel) throughout this planning process and during the actual trip itself. She exuded excitement and positive energy which kept us upbeat in the midst of all the overwhelm towards the end of planning time! Once we were in Hawaii, we felt prepared and ready to have fun! Further, she had built into the planning - surprise flower leis, surprise upgrades in our hotel rooms, several bonuses, and unexpected gifts all along the trip! We truly had a wonderful time in Hawaii thanks to her mindful gestures along the way. It would be an understatement to say that Noelia went above and beyond to make this experience the very best in our lives. :)

To summarize, the purpose for our wedding celebration was to bring loved ones in both families together.. in a relaxed, naturally beautiful environment.. and strengthen the bonds of a variety of people for a lifetime. We imagined that choosing Hawaii Islands as the destination would create that memorable effect. From the depth of my heart, I thank you, Noelia, for being our guiding angel, and for making our vision so colorful... so much more beautiful in reality than we had ever imagined !!! <3
