Wow! Everything about our experience with Daylight Mind was above and beyond. We were planning a 40-person from Los Angeles without ever seeing the venue, and Alycia took excellent care of us. From deciding on the menu, quickly responding to emails, staying within our budget, recommending vendors, and handling the wedding day, we never had to break a sweat because Alycia had us covered. Everything was so easy and stress-free, it was almost hard to believe! I was super super impressed and am grateful for everyone we worked with for our wedding in Kailua-Kona.

WOW! Where to begin! My mom & I actually emailed Julia & asked if we could visit the venue, I was in the area & had recently gotten engaged. The venue seemed so dreamy on the pictures, I just had to see it for myself if it was true. & boy was it EVEN BETTER! It’s so quaint & intimate, a coffee shop on the beach. The pictures can only do so much, because once you see it in person, it’ll take your breath away. Over the course of a year, Julia & I emailed back & forth. She is one of the most patient, helpful, & understanding people you will meet! & if anyone has ever tried to do anything over email, you know there are challenges; Julia executed email communication flawlessly! This definitely helped me stay at ease since I was planning my destination wedding. Since we didn’t know the area very well, we took a trip to Big Island to do some hotel searches, but Julia still helped us find all sorts of wedding services;m. When the time came to choose our menu; Julia sent over the tasting menu, & while we were on our trip to Big Island, we were able to try the AMAZING food. I have a gluten sensitivity, which they absolutely catered to (we ended up doing a GF shoyu salmon)! We also ended up doing macarons for our desert, which were the best macarons I have ever had & am so glad we had them as an option! The weekend of the wedding we held our rehearsal where Julia seriously made me feel so at ease & comfortable; I didn’t know a few of the traditions, such as walking orders & she swooped in to save the day. I remember my husband telling me he was glad she was able to help us. On the day of the wedding, Julia was there to ensure that everything went smoothly & anchored us during our magical whirlwind of a night. There is so much more that I could say, but the biggest thing; Julia & Daylight Mind made our wedding our DREAM wedding, they made us feel comfortable & at ease, & worked with us with so much ALOHA spirit.

I live in California and planned a destination wedding here at Daylight Mind in Kona — I was incredibly impressed with the super fast responsiveness of Julia and her team! She truly has made the wedding planning process for me seamless and enjoyable. She helped me 100% of the way and I don’t think I could have done it without her. From the beginning I told her I had a tight budget and she worked with me to make all my wedding wishes come true, all while staying within my budget threshold. I am truly amazed with my experience with her and the Daylight Mind team. I highly recommend this beautiful venue.

For my wedding, I dreamed of a low stress environment with beautiful scenery. I dreamed of soft colors, the sound of the ocean, and breathtaking views of the ocean during dinner. I dreamed of good music, and an intimate environment to marry my best friend, with all of our closest friends and family as our witnesses. Julia and Daylight Mind provided all of those things for me, and more! I planned our wedding from Oregon, and from the moment I first reached out to Julia I knew that the Daylight Mind was the perfect place for our destination wedding! We did not think that we would be able to make it out to Kona prior to the wedding, so we booked the Daylight Mind after only talking to Julia a few times, and did so with confidence. When I finished nursing school a few months later, my hubby surprised me with a last minute trip over to see the venue and do some planning. I quickly contacted Julia, and with a weeks notice she was able to set up food, drink, and cake tastings with us. She sat with us for hours and got to know our vision, and made me feel so at ease! Each email I sent, Julia either had an answer for me, or knew someone to get into touch with. There were many instances where I wondered if I was asking too much, and Julia assured me that she was more than happy to help! She constantly put me at ease, and I knew I was in the best possible hands. Our food menu: Strawberry spinach Vegetable risotto, Green beans with mac nuts Beef Teriyaki, Furikake crusted fresh catch w/wasabi cream sauce Coconut cake w/ pastry cream filling and cream cheese frosting, and Coconut cake w/ lilikoi mouse filling (lighter creamy lilikoi flavor), and cream cheese frosting Beer/wine + Lilikoi Margarita and hibiscus mule Guests truly ranted and raved about the food, drinks, and cake! As I am sitting here writing this review I am salivating and wishing I could have it again! I 100% recommend Julia and Daylight Mind for the PERFECT wedding!

Julia and her team at Daylight Mind are AMAZING! She made planning a destination wedding a walk in the park, from vendor suggestions to coordinating the day of. The pictures of the venue are beautiful but once you're there in person your mind will.be.blown! The food was amazing and the cake... To die for! If I could have our wedding there every weekend I would! 10/10 A+++ Would wedding again!

From start to finish our experience at Daylight Mind Coffee was amazing!!! I spent months prior to the wedding emailing with Julia back and forth. She was so responsive, friendly and always giving me feedback when I asked. I was pretty nervous at the beginning about planning my wedding but Julia really put my mind at ease. We met with her a few days before the wedding to go over everything and she is just as sweet and helpful in person. Daylight Mind really has everything right there. Location, amazing view, tables, chairs, linens, plates, catering, baker, drinks, etc. Our wedding far exceeded our expectations! It was so perfect and so much fun! The sunset that night was amazing and we got some great photos. The food at Daylight Mind was some of the best food we have ever had and the cake also from Daylight Mind was to die for! Our family and friends are still talking about the food and cake! The staff took such good care of us all night! If you are looking for a wedding venue I can’t tell you how happy we were with this decision! I’m already thinking about when we can go back to re new our vows!! Thank you Daylight Mind, Julia and staff for such an amazing night that we will forever remember.

In early February we had a welcome dinner for 65 at Daylight Mind the night before our son’s wedding. The upstairs was beautifully set up and we were greeted by an upbeat, efficient and courteous staff. The food was presented on time and, for such a large group, it was a very nicely presented and delicious buffet. This evening “set the table” for a magical wedding weekend. All of this was coordinated by Julia who was a delight to work with. She was sensitive to our desires, extremely responsive and organize a very professional event.

This is a perfect venue if you are looking for a stress free wedding experience. We booked our wedding from a different state and had no issues planning from afar. Julia Pittman, the wedding coordinator at Daylight Mind, made this process so easy and stress free. She was always just a phone call away and was great at keeping in touch throughout the planning process. The best part about this venue is how much is included in the cost. There were no surprise fees at the end. The cost of the venue included set up, access to Julia (a wonderful wedding planner), and decorations which included beautiful table displays with fresh tropical flowers. That's right, no need to book a florist or a wedding planner. This venue is the perfect option for couples like us who want a simple, stress free wedding experience. Daylight Mind and its staff exceeded our expectations.

My daughter, son in law and entire Ohana had an exceptional wedding experience at Daylight Mind. The ceremony near the sea was breathtaking and reception was truly magical. We were blessed with the opportunity to work closely with Julia and her amazing team who provided us exceptional and Five Star service from day 1. Julia was exceedingly responsive to our email inquiry and requests (even on her days off), she was so easy to work with and accommodating to our every wedding and reception needs, Mahalo Julia!!

Our experience at Daylight Mind was amazing! Julia, the wedding coordinator, and her team did nothing less than make our special day perfect, from accommodating our booking three weeks out from our wedding date to providing amazing food and service to wowing our guests with super fun bartenders and delicious drinks. They left absolutely nothing to be desired! We originally booked with a different venue that canceled on us one month before our wedding date. I called Julia with my venue crisis and she quickly contacted me back and happily offered me availability, stating her team would do everything in their power to save our wedding. And save our wedding they did!! Looking back, we should have booked Daylight Mind in the first place as the venue was absolutely gorgeous with stunning views and dark Hawaiian wood interior, it was the perfect place for us. Julia and her staff worked tirelessly to ensure that every need was met, asking us how we were doing and if everything was to our liking. Our guests loved the cocktail hour complete with cucumber poke shooters, bacon wrapped scallops, and avocado fries, and couldn't stop talking about the buffet dinner afterwards. It was all so delicious! Daylight Mind is a wonderful, gorgeous, low key, and affordable wedding venue and I would highly, highly recommend it to anyone!! Thank you Julia and Daylight Mind for making our day perfect.

I had the best experience with my wedding reception at Daylight Mind. The staff was so nice, Julia, my point person was kind and very responsive. She totally had all bases covered. We did the buffet and had a long beautifully set table with bistro lights above, the cake was delicious (and I don't normally like cake) the food was great, the atmosphere was relaxed and it could not have been an easier experience. It was also a great price for all we got. All the guests agreed it was a terrific location, excellent food and wonderful staff!

From start to finish I was so pleased with our experience at Daylight Mind. I was planning last minute details (literally within less than 2 months before our wedding day) and had special requests about food and Julia and her team were not only willing to take on our special request but were genuinely excited! I was a little nervous to plan a wedding ceremony and reception from a distance and Julia was able to sense my nerves just over the phone and provide reassurance and address all my concerns. Even before final bookings she was able to provide lots of recommendations of vendors to use in the area from photographers, florists, and even wedding coordinators, she was even willing to receive decorations I sent through the mail to set up on the day of the wedding. I looked into MANY locations on the big island but none seemed to compare to Daylight Mind in their willingness to accommodate requests and cost. Our wedding day literally turned out perfect, everything was totally stress free, she worked so well with the florist, the photographers and her team set up everything in a way to complement our small wedding party beyond what I even imagined. She even provided last minute changes on where to have our first dance for the best lighting and views in cooperation with our photographers. The food also turned out delicious and the service they provided was amazing, we were able to have our dream reception dinner of breakfast for dinner which even include an "omelet station", so FUN. Daylight Mind is an absolutely stunning location and the whole team was so helpful from setup to finish. I have zero regrets about choosing them for both our ceremony and reception and would HIGHLY recommend them!
