Event Planner

Editors’ Pick

Kathy Arakaki has 20 years’ worth of event planning experience. “I started in catering and just sort of fell into it,” she laughs. The resident planner for the Hilton Waikiki Prince Kuhio, Arakaki coordinates large events such as high school proms and corporate conventions, as well as more intimate celebrations such as Christmas and graduation parties. The most common events she plans for—and her favorites—are weddings. “I do about 25 a year, the majority for local folks,” she says. No matter the size of the event, Arakaki attends each one, making sure everything is running smoothly and her “clients’ wishes come true,” she says. 2500 Kuhio Ave., 921-5510,
