Do you have a special dessert flavor that you absolutely love to share with your fiancé?!

We can do custom flavors for our cakes and desserts!

This special couple loves cannolis but instead of having them on their wedding day we customized a filling for their wedding cake!

Let’s get creative! What flavors would you love to see for your dream wedding cake?

Cake Flavor: Genoise Sponge, Cannoli Filling with Chocolate Chips and Vanilla Buttercream

Why do a first look?

1. More time to get photos out of the way before the ceremony so you can chill with your guests at cocktail hour.

2. It’s a good way to stay in the moment at the ceremony and reduce the nerves prior to saying “I do”

3. The sweetest private moment together before the wedding begins. (Swipe for the reaction)

Our Story

Papa Kona Events & Catering can help you plan events at our Kailua-Kona Waterfront Row venue, as well as offer full service catering for events off-site at businesses and private homes. Papa Kona in Kailua-Kona is two floors, and on the first floor is our restaurant, bar and cafe. The second floor is the event space, with our full bar, open air conference room (dance floor!) and dining lanai perched over Kailua Bay. We try to make event planning stress-free by offering an Event Package that includes the tables, chairs, linens, glassware, flatware, china, set up and clean up. In addition, we also provide full catering services from passed appetizers (pupus!) through dinner, coffee service, specialty desserts, wedding cakes and dessert displays.

Mahalo nui loa to Julia and her team at Daylight Mind for helping us with a wonderful memorial lunch for my dad. He was an island boy and would have loved the delicious food, friendly service, and gorgeous views. We are grateful!!!
