When we inquired, it was only about 2 weeks until our huge event. Jacki made sure to fit us into her busy schedule right away.
We hired Gourmet Events Hawaii for our destination wedding last minute (week of the wedding). They were quick to respond to our inquiry, very accommodating and easy to work with. In one day we were able to get pricing and a signed contract.
We were getting compliments from guests all night!
As a mobile DJ, I get to see everything behind the scenes. I simply love working events that Gourmet Events Hawaii is hosting! They are true professionals in every sense of the word.
Comments from my wedding guests: 'I feel like I'm in a movie.' 'I think I'm dreaming, everything is so beatiful.' They were able to give me the PERFECT wedding.
Hawaii is the 50th and most recent state to have joined the United States, having received statehood on August 21, 1959. Hawaii is the only U.S. state located in Oceania, the only U.S. state located outside North America, and the only one composed entirely of islands. It is the northernmost island group in Polynesia, occupying most of an archipelago in the central Pacific Ocean.
The state encompasses nearly the entire volcanic Hawaiian archipelago, which comprises hundreds of islands spread over 1,500 miles . At the southeastern end of the archipelago, the eight main islands are-in order from northwest to southeast: Ni'ihau, Kaua'i, O'ahu, Moloka'i, Lana'i, Kaho'olawe, Maui, and the Island of Hawai'i. The last is the largest island in the group; it is often called the "Big Island" or "Hawai'i Island" to avoid confusion with the state or archipelago. The archipelago is physiographically and ethnologically part of the Polynesian subregion of Oceania.
Hawaii's diverse natural scenery, warm tropical climate, abundance of public beaches, oceanic surroundings, and active volcanoes make it a popular destination for tourists, surfers, biologists, and volcanologists. Because of its central location in the Pacific and 19th-century labor migration, Hawaii's culture is strongly influenced by North American and East Asian cultures, in addition to its indigenous Hawaiian culture. Hawaii has over a million permanent residents, along with many visitors and U.S. military personnel. Its capital is Honolulu on the island of O'ahu.
Hawaii is the 8th-smallest and the 11th-least populous, but the 13th-most densely populated of the 50 U.S. states. It is the only state with an Asian plurality. The state's oceanic coastline is about 750 miles long, the fourth longest in the U.S. after the coastlines of Alaska, Florida, and California.
There are eight main Hawaiian islands, seven of which are permanently inhabited. The island of Ni'ihau is privately managed by brothers Bruce and Keith Robinson; access is restricted to those who have permission from the island's owners. Access to uninhabited Kaho'olawe island is also restricted.
After Europeans and mainland Americans first arrived during the Kingdom of Hawaii period, the overall population of Hawaii, until that time composed solely of indigenous Hawaiians, fell dramatically. The indigenous Hawaiian population succumbed to foreign diseases, declining from 300,000 in the 1770s, to 60,000 in the 1850s, to 24,000 in 1920. In that year 43% of the population was of Japanese descent. The population of Hawaii began to finally increase after an influx of primarily Asian settlers that arrived as migrant laborers at the end of the 19thcentury.
