TropicBird Weddings & Celebrations–Kaua`i came into being in 2006 when writer Dawn Kawahara began providing simple–and simply beautiful– Kauai beach weddings and related ceremonies for loving couples looking for the personal touch and an affordable, stress free process. Rev. Dawn helps couples to plan an unforgettable ceremony tailored to budget and desires. Her desire is that her couples truly enjoy their special day, and the process leading to it. The beautiful ‘Garden Island’ of Kauai provides the perfect tropical backdrop for beach weddings and garden ceremonies with its natural beauty, color and warm, tropical weather.
