Lee Watanabe was an amazing coordinator!! From start to finish, Lee was always composed, attentive, thorough, and so, so sweet! A few months before our wedding, my fiance-now-husband was offered a job in a different state. We sold off most of our furniture, put our house on the market, and moved to our new home--just two weeks before the wedding and one week before we were scheduled to fly home to Hawaii! Needless to say, it was a crazy time; balancing the move and the wedding! Thanks to Lee, we survived! On the day of the wedding, Lee and her entire team were phenomenal. Nothing was amiss and I can not even begin to communicate the level of attention and detail they dedicated to our wedding. Lee was always at hand to make sure everything ran smoothly--including keeping us hydrated! She was aware of my needs before I could even register them! She gave us a brief pause during our bride & groom photos to bring me water (with a straw to preserve the lipstick!) and a quick touch-up. It was the break I didn't know I needed. JWL also provided our head table linens and napkins--they were absolutely perfect!
Lee our coordinator at JWL Events and Decor was amazing and went above and beyond to ensure that we had a perfect day! She was very organized and patient throughout the entire planning process, even when I changed my mind about things many times. She helped to keep us on track in terms of what needed to happen regarding the timeline of the day and working with vendors and even helped with tasks that would have taken us a long time to do in a short amount of time having coming to Hawaii from the mainland like putting together gift bags, blowing up inflatable beach balls, putting personalized sticker labels on water bottles, and more. I would definitely recommend Lee and the JWL Events and Decor team to anyone planning a wedding or event!
Lee made our wedding wonderful. My friends and family loved how she decorated and managed our wedding overall. I was nervous how my wedding would turn out because I had no idea what to do. She taught us every step of the way with patience and kindness. I looked into a couple of wedding planners, but her service fee was a lot lower than the others. Granted, I wasn't expecting much, but she performed above and beyond expectations. If anyone is having a wedding in Hawaii (ohahu), I would 100% recommend Lee from JWL with all confidence!!
If anyone is planning any event in Hawaii, I would very highly recommend Lee Yonaoshi of JWL Events in Honolulu. She is the consummate professional. I am the mother of the groom and I needed help with the favor bags.I was in a panic because my online orders were giving me a lot of problems. My future daughter-in-law gave me her name and Lee responded so quickly. Lee made sure that I got what we needed with just a few days before the wedding day. I wished that I had known of her earlier in the planning stage of the wedding. She is so accommodating and flexible and has gone out of her way to assist me and made sure that our stay in Honolulu is enjoyable and stress-free. She found me an independent florist, Krystle Yago, who executed the floral arrangements we needed for the Rehearsal dinner and exactly as I wanted. Everyone at the dinner was exclaiming how beautiful they were. Lee even took time to meet up with me when she should have been spending time with her family. That's how flexible she was. The wedding ceremony, cocktails, reception along with the music and entertainment (we had hula dancers and fire-eating dancers just like any luau) was exceptional! It was so well executed that all our guests left the wedding event saying it was The Best Wedding they have ever attended. I wish Lee lives here in New York and I would work with her again. Lee is The Best! Awesome! Exceptional!
