Awesome Oceanfront Wedding Venue in Hilo - An Eventective User from Waimea. HI

We had an amazing 200 person wedding at the Wainaku Executive Center (WEC) in May. Julie and Tammy are incredibly knowledgeable helpful in planning and making sure the wedding day goes smoothly. We even had guests comment on the great service from the parking attendants and shuttle drivers. The venue is incredibly beautiful and unique. The building accommodated all of our wedding party getting ready inside, the caterer cooking, food on the lanai, and the party on the lawn. The fact that we got married on the ocean in Hilo and could seamlessly go from the reception, in the amphitheater, to the reception, in the tent, made it really enjoyable. It was the wedding of our dreams and we actually got to enjoy it thanks to the hard work of the Wainaku Executive Center staff and this awesome venue.
