Keauhou, Hawaii – Located in the heart of the Keauhou-Kona resort district on Hawai’i’s Big Island, Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort & Spa recently opened a full-service, one- stop wedding shop. The resort celebrates the new facility with a special package for couples seeking the ultimate in a stress-free destination wedding.
Sealed with a Kiss package suggests to couples that their main responsibility is walking down the aisle and sealing their vows with the traditional post-ceremony kiss. Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort & Spa’s professional staff of special occasion planners will handle every minute detail. From airport arrival where couples are whisked via limousine to the oceanfront resort and everything through to departure day, dreams can come true and weddings can be stress free, and “sealed with a kiss.”
Added to the many expected wedding package inclusions (flowers, officiant, music, photos, lei, cake, etc.), Sealed with a Kiss also includes five nights in an ocean view suite (or two separate rooms pre- ceremony, suite for wedding night) with buffet breakfast daily. Champagne for the Bride and Groom and champagne from the couple delivered to up to three guest rooms is also included. Adding an element of luxury to the package is a ladies’ beauty package for up to six in Ho’ola Spa and Salon for massages, facials, manicures and pedicures and a men’s golf package for up to six for one round of golf at nearby Kona Country Club.
The dream wedding is also highlighted by a privately catered four-course gourmet dinner for two on the couple’s date and select location of choosing during their visit. The extra touches of Sealed with a Kiss provide a sense of comfort to couples who otherwise might be apprehensive about the details of their big day. In the caring hands of Sheraton Keauhou Bay’s staff, their only concern is to seal the special day with a kiss.
As an accredited member of the Association of Bridal Consultants, the resort’s Director of Special Occasions, Natalie Houston, is among an elite group of professionals who are highly trained and qualified to customize and bring wedding dreams to reality. With the ease of the newly opened wedding shop at Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort & Spa couples can see, touch and feel everything in advance, from linens to floral arrangements, table settings to pictures.
“We’re finding more and more couples, particularly those from the West Coast, will fly in via a direct flight to Kona International Airport several months prior to their wedding date to finalize details,” says Houston. “But online capabilities also mean we can achieve practically everything online or via telephone calls. Either way, my job is to be certain the couple is comfortable with the details so they can enjoy Hawai’i, their friends, family, and the wedding.”
With much attention towards July 7, 2007 (070707) as a favored wedding date in 2007 and with the only wedding chapel on the Kona Coast, couples wanting a destination wedding handled by a team who understands romance will want to contact Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort & Spa soon.
