Hmmmm, do we need a coordinator?

That’s a very good question. Here’s a really good answer for you. YES!!!!! I can’t tell you how many times I get asked that question.

The Grand Opening of Sugar Beach Events Hawaii

I am so excited to be meeting so many wonderful couples and clients who are including Sugar Beach Events …
