"Vintage & Lace is the company you want planning your wedding. My husband and I got married in Hawaii and with the help of Rachael and Heather the wedding was the best day I could ever ask for. My coordinator was available when I needed her and even set-up my marriage license appointment, vendor appointments and day-of schedule. She provided me with all their preferred vendors which are all amazing. We talked on a weekly basis via email, sometimes daily and she always got back to me in a timely manner. She sent me suggestions for décor, but also let me reflect my style in the planning process. We wanted a rustic romance/formal wedding in Hawaii and we got it! I think as a bride planning a destination wedding can be stressful, but having Rachael and Heather on your side will make the planning process seamless. Rachael was my day-of coordinator and was there from morning until night. She made sure the set-up, décor, flowers and everyone else arrived on time and made sure to reflect my design for the wedding. She even went above and beyond, adding her own inventory items, used items I sent her and what the resort had. Wow it turned out amazing! Before I walked down the aisle, Rachael even did a last minute check of my hair, veil and make-up. She stayed the whole night working behind the scenes making sure every detail was complete. After the wedding, Rachael followed up with me to make sure my night was perfect – which it was! These girls are a power house and you never feel like you’re just one out of fifty brides – they make you a priority. I would recommend Vintage and Lace to my friends, family and anyone looking for a wedding coordinator for Hawaii."

"It was always our dream to get married in Hawaii. But living in New York, we knew we'd need help to make that dream a reality. After seeing many of the beautiful weddings they had done on the Big Island, we reached out to Vintage&Lace for help with both the wedding planning and day-of coordination.

My husband found Vintage and Lace while looking for wedding planners. I was immediately impressed by all the amazing pictures of the weddings she has put together. I called her and booked her right away. That was the best decision we made for the wedding. Rachael is everything I ever wanted in a wedding planner. I didn't think that a wedding planner of her caliber existed in Hawaii, let alone the Big Island. She took care of EVERYTHING!! She knows everyone in the wedding industry on the Big Island. Everyone she referred to us/booked for us were super nice and did an amazing job. She took my rustic country wedding idea and gave us the most elegant country wedding I could ever ask for! It was better than I could ever imagine. As I look through pictures of our wedding, I'm still in shock of how beautiful it was! She is truly gifted--she organized everything, designed a beautiful wedding, and was always calm and kind during the entire process. Vintage and Lace definitely is the BEST wedding planner in Hawaii. We are truly grateful to have had her plan our wedding."

I definitely knew that we needed help from a local wedding planner to pull together our destination wedding on the Big Island of Hawaii but I never imagined that we would find Rachael at Vintage & Lace. I have to admit it was a tough sell to get my fiancé on side but once we met Rachael and talked through the possibilities of working with her we both knew it was the right decision. I'm so glad we had Rachael help us with "day of coordination" which included her help in the weeks leading up to the wedding and us arriving in Hawaii. We are also so thrilled we decided to have her design and decorate our ceremony and reception area with her beautiful decor pieces and creative eye. She listened to my ideas and turned them into exactly what I was looking for. Her recommendations and suggested vendors were all A+. Our day ran smoothly, we didn't have to worry about anything because Rachael ensured everything down to the last detail had been taken care of we couldn't be happier with how it all turned out. We highly recommend Vintage & Lace.

"I honestly have no idea how we would have been able to plan the wedding - let alone pull it off on the day - had it not been for Rachael. We live about 5000 miles away from the Big Island and were very nervous on how we were going to be able to organize all of the big and little details for the wedding. Rachael was one of the most responsive and detail-oriented people we could have ever asked for. I would hire her to organize my life on a monthly basis if I could. If you get married in Hawaii, especially the Big Island, she will without a doubt be the best investment of the wedding."

"In a word, Rachael was fabulous! From the beginning, it was clear that she wanted to make sure we had the wedding we wanted. Our initial meeting focused on the style of the wedding we were looking for -simple & elegant. From this she was able to recommend locations, photographers, cupcake baker that fit our style and budget. Rachael was in regular email contact (and skype when we needed it!) throughout the 6 month planning process. As we got closer to the date, she even helped to organize our extra wedding week activities and provided critical support for a ‘last minute’ tailoring issue. On the day of the wedding, Rachael took charge. Working with my sisters on the centrepieces, hanging paper lanterns from the ceiling, meeting with the caterers to explain the set up we had agreed on, meeting with the photographer and musician to explain what we wanted, etc. As a result, the day went flawlessly and Rob and I got to focus on enjoying the day and spending time with our guests (most of whom had flown a long way to be with us). Should you decide to hire a wedding planner, Rob and I would definitely recommend Rachael Halpern at Vintage and Lace. Not only is she a great wedding planner (with lots of great vendor contacts and logistics/ coordination skills), she is a very nice person and was an absolute pleasure to work with."

"Rachael was an absolute godsend!! She truly cared about making my wedding exactly what I envisioned, and showed it by going above and beyond in everything. She helped with every detail of the venue, decor, catering, scheduling, contracts, rehearsal, and of course, day-of coordination. Since everyone else involved in planning the wedding (including myself) lives on the mainland, her help at the wedding location was invaluable. From going back to our venue multiple times to make sure we had just the right location, finding a musician, scheduling appointments and making contracts, helping with night-before (and day-of!!) changes, to guiding us through our wedding day- she was amazing! I know there's so many extra little touches she did that I still don't even know about....that's how much she cares. I recommend her very highly! The wedding was more beautiful than I could have imagined....thank you so much, Rachael!!!!"
