Coconut Club Wedding and Reception    posted 7/20/2013

I had no idea that my wedding could ever have been so amazing and well planned out! My wedding and reception were both held in the Coconut Club on the 21st floor of the Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel, right in the heart of Waikiki. I had looked into over 30 different wedding locations and companies, but nothing gave me what I was looking for quite like this place did. I wanted to see it all... Diamond Head, the beach, the ocean, the mountain range, and the cityscape. From this view point, I had it all!!!

The staff was just amazing! Alyssa handled all my questions and walked me through the venue. Harry was our banquet manager and he was spot on! Our wedding started at 6 pm, and the pupu's followed shortly after. Our buffet was hot and ready right when I asked for it to be, and the guests could not stop talking about how great the food was! Several of them took doggy bags back to their rooms!! Shortly after dinner was served, we enjoyed the free fireworks show put on every Friday in Waikiki.

The DJ that they provided was awesome! He played our playlists straight from our IPOD and his equipment was top notch. I have to say not one thing went wrong, and I wouldn't have changed any detail from that day. Tiki's Bar & Grill in the Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel truly put on an amazing night for us and I wish I could relive it all over again!!!

Nicole & Reggie reminded me why Hawaii destination weddings work for so many couples

This wedding ceremony and reception for Nicole & Reggie reminded me why Hawaii destination weddings work for so many couples.  They were from Rockford, Illinois and moved to Hawaii just before their wedding date.

Nicole started working with us a year before her wedding date.  With 52 emails and a few phone calls later, a year had passed and it was time for their big day!

They chose the Coconut Club as a private venue location overlooking Waikiki beach.  They used cream satin chair covers that were positioned in 3 angled rows. The back drop for the ceremony was the Pacific Ocean. 

This was a custom-designed wedding ceremony and reception, where the bride incorporated her desired look and feel through custom made decor pieces. She brought in all the decor and made many of the elements herself. For the ceremony, 40 seats were set up on the Coconut Club lanai.

The cupcake stand and cakes were made by Paradise Pastries.


  • Island Taro Rolls Banana Vanilla Butter
  • Oriental Chicken Chop Salad Chicken Breast, Crispy Won Tons, Sesame Dressing
  • Pineapple Fried Rice
  • Garlic Basil Mashed Potatoes
  • Asian Stir-Fry Vegetables
  • Orange Togarashi Glazed Salmon Balsamic Glaze
  • Nalo Farms Basil & Mac Nut Shrimp Pasta Orecchiette Pasta, Parmesan Cheese,
  • Parmesan Chicken Rosemary Sundried Tomato Chardonnay Sauce
  • Hoisin Grilled Boneless Short Ribs Fork Tender Beef, Demi Glaze
  • Dessert: Lilikoi Cheesecake Graham Cracker Crust, Tropical Fruit

The children ordered from the Tiki's Keiki Menu when they arrived.

The cupcake stand and cakes were made by Paradise Pastries.

They included additional features that complimented their special day:

  • Rope lighting on the outer railing
  • DJ/Bose sound system & lighting
  • Sign-in table with photo albums
  • Candy bar 
  • Drink tickets for guests

The Coconut Club is located on the 21st floor of the Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel; it is completely private and offers the most sensational view of Waikiki.

(Thank you note) Alyssa thank you so much for all you did for us! You and Harry were amazing!!! That collage of pictures looks stunning!!!! I can't believe how nice it all looked!!! Thank you again!!! - Nicole 

5 Star Review from a Bride on the

Simple. Elegant. Perfect for our wedding!    posted 6/10/2013

First, I have to give a much deserved THANK YOU to the staff of Tiki's. Working with them throughout the planning process was a breath of fresh air. I came to find out that not many people are in a rush to do much of anything in Hawaii, which was a huge adjustment coming from the mainland, and a city at that. It was frustrating planning a wedding, while researching vendors who didn't work at the same speed as i did. After finding and connecting with Tiki's they were always so prompt in responding to me, given the large time difference, and were so accommodating. Additionally, if communicating via email wasn't always the easiest, they never hesitated to pick up the phone to clarify that we were on the same page. Doing little things like that was always appreciated, and considered going the extra mile in my eyes.

More specifically, I have to thank Alyssa, who helped coordinate and really make our reception come to life and ensure it was everything I had hoped for and more. She was a big reason I chose to stay working with Tiki's. There was a staff change early in my planning process, but having her come in was the best thing for me and for Tiki's. So THANK YOU Alyssa.

Now for the remainder of of the review...

Food (Kona Buffet):
**Appitizers were not included in the buffet)**

**Ahi Poke- sinfully delicious! Myself and guests gobbled this right up, and even for guests who had never had raw fish--they were blown away by the flavor. BRAVO!

**Coconut Shrimp- can't really mess this up haha. Very good :)

Teriyaki Chicken- best I've ever had. Seriously...i want the recipe. Someone? Anyone? I'd fly back just for this chicken!

Macadamia nut crusted mahi mahi- So delicious, moist, and flaky! This was my favorite part of our dinner! I had dreams about this fish before arriving for the wedding, and it did not disappoint.

Guava glazed ribs- just OK in my opinion. I think I expected more sweetness than what I actually tasted, and they were a bit greasy.

Location was great! We reserved their private room on the 21st floor, which was one of the best decisions we made. It was private, intimate, and GORGEOUS. Amazing views of Waikiki Beach, and Diamonhead. We enjoyed an incredible sunset, and could not imagine having our reception anywhere else.

This place is for the low-key simple bride all the way to the high-maintenance luxury bride (c'mon ladies, we know we can admit this haha). I fell somewhere in the middle and they took wonderful care of me, my new husband, and all of our guests!

Do yourself a favor and go to Tiki' it a simple dinner while visiting, or planning your next event. :)
