Carrie from Cherished in Hawaii was amazing! Everything flowed beyond perfectly and was organised to a superb standard. Having Carrie enabled us to have the wedding of our dreams (even better actually) without minimal stress or lost time. There was literally nothing that we wanted that she didn’t make happen. Thank you Carrie from the bottom of our hearts. You are extremely good at what you do, and because of you – our wedding day was organised to perfection without us barely lifting a finger. Thank you and can't wait to see the photos!!! Xx Michelle and Andrew

Carrie and her husband, Mark were excellent in helping us plan for our wedding. We got married in Ko Olina (ceremony was at the Paradise Cove Crystal Chapel and the reception was at Lanikuhonua). Both venues were recommended to us by Carrie and both were beautiful when we finally had the chance to visit the places. We are from the UK so organising a wedding in hawaii was a very daunting but Carrie put our minds at ease and she made our wedding day very special.

The vendors that she recommended were all great and very professional. All our guests raved about the vendors - from the musicians, polynesian show and food. They all had a lovely time thanks to Carrie and her team.

Carrie is very professional and organised - she will always respond to queries and her suggestions for are great. In fact, we had no wedding stress at all as we knew exactly where and when to be at certain places just by following Carrie's user friendly timelines.

We couldn't have done it without her and would definitely recommend her services if you need a professional, calm and friendly person to guide you through the wedding planning process (and believe me, there is a lot of think about!)…..you will be in good hands with Carrie and will have a lovely stress free wedding on her watch :-)

Thank you Carrie and Mark for all you help - it was lovely meeting you! Lots of Love Rob & Rachel xxx

We were planning our Hawaii destination wedding (64 people including bride and groom) all the way from New York, and we can't imagine how we could have pulled it off without Carrie. Even during initial conversations when we were still picking our wedding planner, she was generous with the time spent and advice given for our wedding.

From the reception venue to catering to every little detail we could think of (or would *never* think of), saying that Carrie was on top of things would be an understatement. She was efficient, very respectful and mindful of everyone's time and comfort level. She has this list of vendors, venues, menus, etc. that would seem to fit anyone's preferences and budget.

While she was really great to work with remotely, she was even more wonderful in person and she pretty much mothered us and encouraged us to just enjoy the occasion and just trust her and our vendors. She was very good at helping us mentally and emotionally prepare for an occasion that may happen to us only once in our lifetime. She was constantly on guard and seemed very protective of us -- very sensitive to changes and possible unknowns and making sure that the event would go really well, and with the least amount of stress on us.

One surprising personal touch is that she actually called us in the afternoon a few hours before the wedding to check on us and make sure we were OK -- that we had our lunch, that we weren't too stressed, etc. and she also gave us a few more reminders heading towards the ceremony.

Sweet, reliable, flexible, attentive and meticulously detailed -- we cannot recommend Carrie highly enough!

Our advice would be to just hire her and trust her with all her recommended venues, vendors as well as any advice she may have that are specific to you. (Hint: If she suggests the Polynesian show, go for it if it fits your budget!)

When my husband and I decided destination wedding I sent 4 inquiries and Cherished in Hawaii Weddings is one of the one who responded right away! I narrowed it down to 2, but after speaking with Carrie I knew she’s the one. I love her from the beginning; yes I was a little hesitant because some people tend to disappoint you. They commit or promise everything and anything, but at the end of the day you’re left disappointed. Not with Carrie!!! She’s excellent, very easy to deal with which makes the whole experience wonderful, and the BEST thing about her she’s honest. Her attitude speaks about the people she works with. From her to all the vendors were very easy to work with and they are phenomenal. I’m pleased with the overall experience. I’m a very HAPPY & SATISFIED bride; happy bride makes a happy groom which makes the whole party happy. I highly recommend Carrie and her team. She will make it the best experience, trust me when she said “you don’t have to do anything, but show up and let things unfold” she meant it!! They all have enough experience that they know nothing but the BEST!

May did a great job with my hair and makeup, Mark showed me few great shoots, the Minister was responsible for my husband’s rare sentimental moment (which BTW brought teary eyes to everyone), the musician rendered a beautiful song during our first dance. From planning until the end was just perfect, if I have to do it again I wouldn’t change anything I would let Carrie take me for the ride and let her magic take care of it. Thank you for making it all worth it for my husband and I. I hope to work with all of you again (perhaps family or friends event “smiles”)

After searching through the numerous Hawaiian wedding companies around I very fortunately came across Cherished in Hawaii! The most important thing for us was the photography, and Mark's photography really stood out. Then after reading endless reviews on how amazing Carrie was we knew that Cherished in Hawaii was the company for us!

We were worried that we may not receive the same kind of attentiveness or interest that a huge wedding might given it was just the two of us, but this could not have been further than the truth! Carrie was always in contact with us when we needed her - almost telepathically! We planned the whole thing from the Netherlands so it was so nice to know everything was under control when we arrived! Many things did not go to plan during our trip (including flight delays and a narrowly missed hurricane!), but Carrie made sure that our wedding day was 100% perfect! She was extremely friendly, very flexible, always available and had time for us before, during and after the wedding. Carrie makes sure that you never feel pressured with your choices and never tries to sell you something you do not want. This was something I really appreciated.

Our minister really made us feel like the only couple in the world getting married (and that is something on Hawaii!!), the ceremony was full of love and just perfect.
To top it all off Mark was a fantastic photographer and we are completely over the moon with our photographs!! Such wonderful ideas made for many varied photos on the beach.
I have nothing bad to say - Cherished in Hawaii were amazing!
Thank you Carrie, Mark and Kimo!

Planning a destination wedding was quite stressful for me; working with emails and pictures of things you like on the internet, you have no way of knowing how things are really going to turn out on the big day. After trying to organize everything by ourselves and about a year before the wedding, I contacted Carrie sitting in the airport waiting for our flight to Hawaii and she responded to my email within minutes and accepted to meet us right away. Right then, she arranged for us to visit a few venues and was making phones calls for us (we didn’t even hire her yet); that demonstrates how open and generous she is. Right away we knew we had found our coordinator.

Carrie is really great to work with; she responded to our tons of emails quickly and always making sure to turn things in a positive way. We faced many challenges during our planning process and every time, she came up with solutions that made things work for us. In the end, our wedding day was perfect; the venue, the food, the vendors she recommended, it was all great. My wedding bouquet was in my opinion the most beautiful wedding bouquet ever! It truly looked even better than the pictures of the ones I choose to send her as an example of what I was looking for.

Don’t hesitate a minute to hire Cherished in Hawaii weddings; it is the best investment you can make to make sure your wedding goes smoothly. The vendors Carrie will recommend you are trusted ones and working with her, you will be able to just sit back and relax on your big day as she will be there, taking care of everything for you. I often say that hiring Carrie was the best decision we made in our whole wedding planning process! Mahalo Carrie for a wonderful wedding!

When I found Cherished in Hawaii Weddings, Carrie contacted me back right away! While getting to know her for the first time, I started to realize how respectful she was of our budget. Being a lower budget wedding, staying on track was very important to us and Carrie was always there every step of the way.

When you’re a bride, getting down to those last few weeks is stressful! Carrie reassured me that everything was going as planned and on track. Honestly, I was stressing about nothing. Once you get to know Carrie, if she sees you stressing about something she’ll stop and tell you “this is your day, just relax and have fun!”

Our wedding day turned out absolutely amazing! Everything was perfect and we didn’t have to worry about a thing! Carrie was in contact with me making sure I was doing ok and Mark was there making sure the guys and the minister were on time and ready to go. We showed up and had fun!

Just a little story I’d like to share that we didn’t find out until after the wedding….the vendor we had secured for our flowers had a family emergency last minute. Carrie was able to find another vendor last minute and execute every single detail we wanted in our flower order! And we didn’t have to pay a dime extra for this other vendor to take over same day! Carrie knows everybody in the industry and was able to make this happen without breaking a sweat! Like I said, we didn’t have any idea this had happened until after the wedding. She didn’t want us to get stressed because she had everything under control!

Overall, Carrie and her team go above and beyond! Carrie has the experience, she is a straight shooter, is honest, on time, pays attention to detail and is very knowledgeable about the wedding industry. You want something done, she'll do it! When it comes down to it, Carrie is worth EVERY penny! You will not be disappointed!

Hands down the best wedding planner on the island! Carrie has a great personality, she is easy going, down to earth and not to mention easy to work with and very professional. We live in NYC and lets admit planning a destination wedding (wedding itself) could be stressful, but thanks to Carrie she made it as easy and less stressful. Much Aloha Carrie!

We were recommended Carrie by a friend of a friend who used to organise weddings on Maui, so we knew we would be in safe hands.

It was my husbands life-long dream to go to Hawaii and when we started discussing the wedding we always knew this would be our first choice. However, Living in Scotland, it seemed like a rather daunting prospect.

Carrie took all the worries away. She was helpful with finding locations, flowers, reception, decor, photographer, officiant, hair and makeup and anything else we could possibly think of! She was (is!) great at replying to emails promptly (even if I wasn't!) and is massively reassuring that everything is under control.

Given the fact we were on the other side of the world, we did everything online and over email and it couldn't have gone smoother. We didn't get to meet with Carrie until a day or 2 before the wedding and had no worries at all. She set our expectations and was honest and helpful at every turn. Her and Mark went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and were just a delight to deal with.

On they day itself, everything was calm and Carrie took control of every aspect of the day. All we had to do was get ready and turn up! Hurrah! We had the most relaxed and special wedding, it really was everything we had dreamed of.

Not. One. Complaint.

Thanks Carrie and Mark and Kimo for making our day the best ever!
