What People are Saying
“Creating a Magical Evening”
“We want to thank you for creating a magical evening for our guests. When we arrived (at the Barefoot Beach Cafe) the table was set beautifully and we appreciated you greeting us right away. The food was absolutely perfect, every guest was happy with their meals. Our guest who is Kosher let us know that in his history of traveling the only other organization that was able to provide a proper Kosher meal was the Belgium Government – he was so very grateful for the meal.

“Professionalism & Thoroughness”
“I work in film and TV production so our hours are not very typical like most businesses. Sakara and her team where amazing troopers when it came to our most recent film as we were filming at various locations all over Oahu and things were consistently changing. I was impressed by everyone’s professionalism and thoroughness as some meals had to ready by 4AM and others at 9PM.
Every single meal was executed with such great thought and presented with the little details.
I would highly recommend HD Catering and Event Planning to anyone. Truly. Their food is delicious and leaves a smile on your face. “
“True Aloha Spirit”
“We used DH Catering for a family gathering in Kailua, for two group dinners (12 guests) and a full-day tour of Oahu. The dinners blew us away, coming from our group of foodies this is a high, high compliment. Their service and laid back attitude was an added bonus, as the food would have had us coming back regardless! The tour day was an unexpected treat, we really thought we knew the island well but Kekoa showed us some of the coolest lil hideaway beaches and other secret spots we never heard of. I adore this company on so many levels, they showcase true Aloha Spirit and some seriously amazing food. You will not be disappointed!“

“We Got our Dream Wedding”
“Sakara was amazingly helpful right from the start, and had some wonderful creative ideas and best of all always kept my really tight budget in mind. Through her and her great ideas we got our dream wedding that looked super extravagant that my family is still talking about and cannot stop raving about how absolutely beautiful it was.(80 People). Everyone told us that we were looking to have “a champagne wedding on a beer budget” and it was not possible. But she proved everyone wrong. Her husband Kekoa Ornellas is an officiant certified through the state of Hawaii. He performed our wedding and he was great too. Both are very friendly and fun to work with they felt like a part of my ohana (family) by the end of our event. Definitely a true spirit of Aloha! I would recommend her over and over again and hope that she is still around in 10 years so we can do it all over again for our 10 year anniversary.”
