Wow. Just Wow!

Well, we did it. We put together an amazing grand opening (if I do say so myself). The night turned out better than I had imagined and the venue looked so chic and dramatic. It really was the result of a lot of small details that make a great space look even more amazing. So, let me walk you through …

There’s gonna be a party going on!

What a great week of booking clients and planning parties. Seriously, who wouldn’t want to get married or have a party on Maui? This really is a dream destination. Speaking of dreams, I’m about to have the party of my dreams. Next week is the grand opening party for Sugar Beach Events. Yvette and I are working with Winters Events …

Can you see the big smile on my face?

Aloha y’all, Well, last night was another test for Sugar Beach Events (I will be referring to Sugar Beach Events as SBE from now on) and we passed with flying colors. There were a lot of Who’s Who at the party, a very discriminating group, and they all loved the venue, service and food. I did all new food last …

It’s been a week already

Aloha y’all, I can hardly believe this time last week the venue was all a buzz with excitement and so many people working hard to make Katelyn and Eric’s dream come true. I have been working hard, with Yvette’s help, getting even more details in place. The landscaping turned out great. When it grows in it will be so lush …

With a little help from your friends……

With a little help from your friends…..you make a dream a reality. That’s what happened at Sugar Beach over the last week. A lot of people came together to make the first event last night utterly spectacular. The day started out really early (as you can imagine). Katelyn and the ladies showed up and relaxed in the bridal salon and …

On a more personal note… Dreams Do Come True

Let me tell you a little story……. I moved to Maui 8 years ago. I didn’t have a job when I got here and I took a leap of faith to create a life for myself on this beautiful island paradise. It truly is the best decision I ever made. Sugar Beach is MY dream come true. This is it for …

Ready, set, go!

Well, I had my first tasting today. My bride, Stephanie, has been working with me since last October. We finalized her menu today. She shared some of these photos with me. Yes, she started in on the salad before the picture was even taken. It was that good. She was actually quite surprised by how much she liked the bleu …

What a difference a little sod and carpet makes

I’ve been so patiently waiting (well, that’s not true, I’m not really good with patience) for the sod and carpet to go in. I knew those two applications would completely change the look of Sugar Beach. Yep, I was right. It looks ready for Katelyn’s event next week. They still have to put in all of the shrubs and flowers, but …

Ooh, ahh, nice!

ALOHA!!! That is what I experienced today when eleven great people came to help unload the container and get everything in the building. Let me tell you, all of you who have an event at Sugar Beach Events, you can not be in better hands. The people I’m surrounded by have so much dedication and desire to create something very special …

Everything shiny and new

China, glassware, stove, grill and ovens…..just to name a few of the items that are all shiny and new. My quest for equipment began in Las Vegas in March at a catering show. I knew the style I wanted and Yvette was the perfect person to help me with selections that all went together and that would work really well at …
