Sun Kim gave us the care and guidance that we needed, from Day 1. We had a very specific theme in mind for our wedding that we could only describe in a few adjectives. She was on-board, immediately. There were times where we would go off theme a little bit and she was not afraid to let us know if it would clash with what we had already planned. She was graceful and attentive to detail. And our wedding turned out absolutely perfect. We asked for random things to be ready for us that evening like: chilled shots waiting for us at the end of the ceremony, and appetizers waiting on the table for us so that we don't get "Hangry". We could not be happier having Sun help us. But most importantly, we are so happy to have met such a wonderful person whom we'll remember always.

Sun made planning a destination a breeze! Our dream wedding went from a dream to a reality with Sun and her team. She made the whole experience stress free during what could have been a stressful time. She was always easy to get in contact with and made sure all of my request were met. I would 100% recommend Sun to plan your wedding!

Kim and her team were amazing! My husband and I started planning our Hawaii destination wedding renewal (been married for 10 years and never had a big wedding, so why not!?) about 18 months before the big day. We knew we needed a planner who was in Hawaii to help us work through all the wedding details since we live in San Francisco. I had interviewed a few other wedding planners but really hit it off with Kim. I knew she was the right planner when I told her that I am an over-the-top control freak who is easily agitated and that didn't scare her away. 🙂 Planning our wedding renewal with Kim was so much fun! Kim made sure we didn't freak out about planning by always fielding our numerous questions and being on top of all wedding details. She listens to what you want but still provides her honest opinion and advice so you can make the best decision. Kim brought our wedding day vision to life and it was amazing and flawless! We love her!
Kim was literally a godsend. I had just given birth to my first baby girl, and had to take on the task of planning a destination wedding. What could have easily been the most stressful times in my life, Kim made it easy. From recommending the right vendors, to helping me with the colors/theme of my reception, to making sure there was a drink waiting for me right when we arrived in the limo, she made my dream wedding come to life! She communicates well, and isn't too pushy. She is very efficient and accomodating with your requests (ie. I waited until the last minute to hire shuttle services for our guests). She made planning a wedding from afar seamless and definitely took a huge load off my shoulders. I would recommend I Do Weddings to anyone looking for a wedding planner that makes things happen!
Where to start?? Can’t express our gratitude and appreciation for all Sun Kim & her team has done for us. We would never have had the wedding if it wasn’t for them!! 😝 We are a busy couple and hiring I Do as our planner was the best investment in our wedding! Hands down!! Please don’t hesitate and book with the I DO team for your big day! We really didn’t have to worry about anything throughout the planning and we throughly enjoyed ourselves at the wedding. It was an AMAZING day that we will cherish forever ❤️
We hired Sun as our full coordinator and she did not disappoint. We had been stressed that something would go wrong on our wedding day, but once the day came Sun took care of everything so that we only had to think about enjoying our day with friends and family. She knows a lot of people in the business so she was able to recommend great vendors and get us discounts because of her relationships with them. She was professional and helpful and I would recommend her to anyone planning their dream wedding. There was also one part at the end of our wedding where all the guests held hands and swayed around us in a circle. Our cameramen had gone home by that point and no one had free hands to take pictures. I was disappointed the next day when I realized there wouldn’t be pictures because it was one of my favorite moments. But of course Sun was taking pictures, and she sent them the next day. Just one example of how she goes above and beyond to make each wedding perfect for her clients.
We hired Sun as our day of coordinator, and she coordinated all moving pieces (photography, videography, decorations, entertainment, bridal party) into place and executed them as smoothly as possible. Despite the unpredictable weather on our wedding day, Sun and Monique made sure everything went according to plan ...and it did! Her help alleviated so much stress off our shoulders and I cannot thank her enough for all the hard work and patience she’s invested on our day. Thank you so much!
Sun is an absolute pro at what she does . She helped us plan our wedding in 2019. Without her genius and abilities, we would not have had the wedding of our dreams. From the very beginning she kept us on track, provided great ideas and helped our vision become reality. Our wedding would not have happened without her! And on the day of, I had nothing to worry about. My husband and I were able to enjoy our wedding completely stress free. To this day, we STILL get compliments from our guests about how much they loved the wedding. This is all because of Sun and her team. You will not regret working with her!
"Everyone needs a little Sun in their life!!" - I swear this would be my response to anyone who asked me how our wedding planning was going or if we needed any help throughout the process. It was very important to my husband and I that are our families were not working during our wedding. Typically for our family events, everyone helps set-up and breakdown and helps throughout the entire party and we didn't want that for our wedding. We wanted to party and have a good time with our loved ones, and Sun made that possible. She was extremely responsive when I had a ton of questions to ask and helped me calm when I began to get a little stressed. When we had an issue with our venue come-up and had to make a lot of changes, she handled it like a PRO! I had a hard time at first adjusting my vision with our venue change but Sun just reminded me that everything happens for a reason. In the end, it was amazing and I really loved how Sun knew I was cost conscious but also willing to make my dream wedding come true...
Sun Kim was absolutely amazing and so great to work with! She was very responsive and gave me realistic advice throughout the whole planning process. She is very experienced and has a great team. I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding coordinator!
We met Sun Kim at the Hawaii Bridal Expo and we knew we wanted her to be our day of coordinator right away! We began corresponding with her a month before our wedding. She met with us at our venue as soon as we were available. She knew exactly what needed to be done to finalize all our contracts and helped point out all the small details that we missed, making suggestions along the way. Kim attended our rehearsal and definitely eased our minds for the day to come. Our entire wedding day from start to finish went by perfectly. She even went out of her way to take pictures during the wedding and sent them to us afterwards. We're truly blessed to have worked with Kim and highly recommend her services!
If you don’t need a wedding planner, think again! I was planning to do it all myself until everything was getting overwhelming for me. Sun Kim/ I do weddings as my wedding planner was the best investment ever! She made everything easy and smooth. My wedding couldn’t have been perfect and stress free without her. I am glad i made the right decision of getting her. She is very professional, sweet, creative, and phenomenal. Her professionalism and passion is top notch. I’m literally in tears writing this. Can’t thank her enough for everything she has done.

Destination wedding is really tough, especially when both of us don't know single thing about Oahu. Not only Sun Kim made it possible, but also our wedding turned out to be perfect. From recommending the right vendors to accommodating with our requests, she made it easy and smooth throughout the planning process. For example, we were worried about food since we couldn't taste in advance, but every guests loved our food. Thanks Sun Kim for making it happen. All the guests really enjoyed the day and said "best wedding they ever been to." That says it all!
We got married this past September & worked with Sun Kim on our wedding. We initially had a phone consultation since we do not reside in Hawaii & she put us at ease with all of our answers. Planning a destination wedding can be nerve wracking but luckily, she was patient with us. Throughout our planning, she was responsive, organized & creative in making our vision come to life! We arrived couple days before our wedding day & Sun Kim met with us the day before our wedding for our rehearsal. She showed us what to do for our ceremony. Which was so helpful because we had no clue lol On our wedding day, my husband and I didn't have anything to worry about. Everything went smoothly and most importantly we all had a blast! The best party ever! Everything was so beautiful:) I can't thank Sun & her team enough for all that they did to create such a memorable experience for all of us! Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!!
My husband and I were very nervous about our wedding plans. Shortly after our engagement we decided on a Hawaiian destination wedding. We both live in Germany which logistically speaking makes arranging a Hawaiian wedding difficult. How would we ever be able to organize a wedding from half-way around the world? We needed a wedding planner. After careful consideration, we decided that we wanted Sun Kim and her team at I DO Weddings to help us. Our initial meeting via Skype left us with a positive impression. Sun is very easy to communicate with. She answered all of our questions and made us feel at ease. We are both 'boring' engineers, and as two men we didn't really have any idea what we wanted or how to plan a wedding. It seemed we knew more about what we didn't want, versus what we did. Sun was patient with us, but most importantly she listened...
Kim is beyond AMAZING! I am so blessed to have Kim as my wedding planner. Being a local girl, Kim knows Hawaii, especially Oahu really well. She knows all the beautiful secret wedding venues to provide the most incredible wedding backdrop, as well as a joyous space to host our guests. She also has great connections with all the vendors starting from florists, photographers/videographers, DJs, caterers, wedding officiants, travel specialists, and more. Kim is super organized, meticulous, efficient, and easy to talk to. Some might say I am a "bridezilla" due to all my requests. However Kim is always available to bounce ideas with me to collaborate and create the most perfect dream wedding for my husband, Mike and I. All in all, Kim is a visionary, executor, and perfectionist...
Sun Kim and her team made our dream wedding a reality. It was absolutely magical. We were actually about 10 minutes ahead of schedule (being on time was so important to us!). She made sure our vendors were on time and set up. We didn’t have to worry about a thing. Everything ran so smoothly and according to plan. It was perfection, nothing could’ve gone any better!!! 🙂
Sun was a professional through and through! We ended up pushing our wedding back a full year, just after hiring her, and she rolled with every bump along the way. We were hesitant about hiring a coordinator but ended up being so glad we did (especially when ours turned out to be a destination wedding—on the most popular wedding date this year). Everything we asked for was delivered on. Sun was attentive, always calming and punctual. She stayed within budget, found us every little random thing requested, and did it all with a smile. She’s resourceful and smart and we couldn’t have done it without her. Ms. Kim produced the best wedding ever!
Absolutely wonderful to work with. Sun and her crew made our day amazing. Even with Hurricane Lane headed towards us, Sun remained calm and helped us look at every option— in the end, the day turned out to be beautiful and one of a kind. I highly recommend these ladies to help you plan your special day with peace of mind and smiles every step of the way 🙂
Sun Kim was wonderful. She got my vision from the start. She was always easy to get in contact with and responded to any issues in a timely manner. The day of went off without any issues and everything looked exactly the way I wanted it.
My wedding day was everything I envisioned it would be thanks to Sun Kim & her team! I was a little lost to the direction of the theme and what type of wedding I wanted in the beginning but Sun helped put it all together and it couldn’t have been more perfect. This was a destination wedding and we first met Sun at our venue for a site walk through months prior to our wedding. We had a chance to plan a trip before the wedding to get some wedding things done and Sun setup all of our vendor appointments conveniently to work with our visiting schedule. After we got back to the states, we communicated often through emails, texts, calls & the months flew by! We arrived to the island a couple days before the wedding and we had our rehearsal the day prior. Sun lead the rehearsal and showed us what to do, where to stand & walk etc....
We absolutely recommend I Do Weddings! Sun Kim and her excellent staff helped us organize my daughter's destination wedding from start to finish. They recommended several options for the vendors (cake, flowers, DJ, transportation, etc.) and helped us find the ones who fit our needs and price points perfectly! Sun Kim was with us at the venue on the day of the wedding, and worked all evening with graciousness, and a smile. We had the time of our lives, and will never forget how awesome everything turned out!! It was absolutely a perfect evening! Mahalo!!!
The moment we had the initial phone call with Kim, we knew she was the one that we wanted to fully coordinate our wedding. She was so kind, easy to talk to and so patient with us. We didn’t know what to expect especially with a destination wedding. We’re from California and no matter what time of day, Kim always responded so quickly with an easing answer for us. It was an honor to have Kim coordinate our wedding... From helping us find our venue, food, scheduling appointments for us etc etc, she made it absolutely easy for us to plan and choose. She works with plenty of vendors and helps you choose the right one for your day. Kim also helped us with all the vendor contracts, keeping track with our budget, making sure things are paid and done specific times and knew every answer to every question!! If we stressed or worried about something, she made that feeling go away immediately... and we thank her for that. The day of the wedding went so smoothly and everything came out so perfect. We definitely recommend Kim especially for a destination wedding! Thank you kim for being amazing and helping us with our special day! We miss you!
We are so grateful to work with Sun & her team! They were wonderful in helping me plan my wedding day. Sun was responsive, organized, professional yet sweet & caring. My husband and I chose to go with full coordination since we do not live in Hawaii. She helped me select the best vendors and looked into all requests that I had. I tend to lack attention to details and Sun helped me to remember those little details. My wedding day was so amazing & stress-free. I honestly didn’t worry about anything & Sun was there to remind me to stay calm and enjoy every moment. It was an emotional day & it was so beautiful to see all my closest friends and family enjoy the day as much as we did which was so important to us since so many of them made sacrifices to make it to our destination wedding in Hawaii. We really wanted everyone to have a great time..which they did! We are still talking about it to this day! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sun and her team for your wedding planning needs. They care about your big day and it’s relevant in every details of the day! So so thankful!
I wish there was an option to give 10 stars!!!! Our wedding in Hawaii was more amazing than we had expected! All of our family and friends are still talking about it! Sun Kim was a pleasure to work with, very easy to talk to, professional and really made everything so easy for us. This was a destinationwedding for us so we definitely needed a planner and so glad we chose I DO. We are satisfied with the outcome.
