Company owner and planner Stephanie Shipp spent her childhood years traveling between Southern California and Hawaii, allowing her to gain a knowledge and appreciation for high style fashion trends and up beat city life as well as the gracious and simplistic laid back lifestyle of the islands. As a California girl whose exposure to Hawaii began as a child over 30 years ago, it was a "no brainer" for Stephanie to offer a planning service that would bridge the gap between couples and vendors on the main land and in Hawaii.
A real go-getter with a zest for creativity and personal relations, Stephanie started PCH in 2002 and began planning weddings for far away brides. Always clever and often sentimental, Stephanie derived the name Pacific Coast Host from an acronym for the Pacific interstate Highway "PCH" that covers the entire state of California. "The Pacific has always been my home." Depending on how you look at it, Stephanie says "the Ocean can either connect us or divide us, for me there has always been a connection."
Stephanie's company, Pacific Coast Host, has become an invaluable resource for couples looking for a personal, fun, and stress free wedding in Hawaii. (They offer Exclusive Wedding Planning services and specialize in Destination Weddings.)
Pacific Coast Host Weddings have been featured in Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazine, Elegant Bride, Modern Bride, and Pacific Weddings.
