Wonderful Wedding Weekend!
"In searching for our daughter and now son-in-law’s wedding venue we came upon Chaminade Resort and Spa. We toured their different ceremony sites, reception sites, and the hotel accommodations and were immediately certain this was the place their wedding was meant to be! To quote our son-in-law “It checks off all the boxes”. The resort is beautiful, in such a scenic location and is so well cared for! We decided on having the wedding on the Terrace Courtyard, Cocktail Hour on the Sunset Patio and the Reception in the Sunset Room. 

Angela Edmond was our coordinator there, we were so happy with her “can do” attitude, always enthusiastic about making our vision and ideas happen! She was also a great resource, with extensive wedding experience to help guide us whenever we needed it! We never had the sensation that this was just another wedding, everything was done to our specific taste and we always had options. It was ideal having so much included in the wedding package, all right there on site. 

We all couldn’t be happier with the wedding experience we had! It really was meant to be!"
