Laurie & Al are so nice, professional, great, and very trustworthy! They perfectly helped to make our wedding that we have been dreaming for a long long time come true. We can't say enough how touching and moving the wedding is. It is exactly what we have wanted and even beyond our expectation. Living in a different country and with busy work, we found Makena Weddings at the last minute (only two weeks before the weeding). Talking with laurie eased all the panic. I was even worried about the Haku Lei since I got that just before the ceremony. Obvious, I was over worrying. It's so fresh, so beautiful, perfectly fit my dress with all the rest of the wedding. Reverend Al was so great, talking about the meaning of the lei (we love the lei exchange), the ring, the love and the marriage. We both cried. It's the best experience you can ever have. Thank you, Laurie & Al. Aloha and mahalo!

My wife and I had a 25th anniversary renewal. Laurie handled all aspects of the set-up and communications. She was very responsive and flexible. She was able to adjust on the fly when the weather took a turn at the last minute. Reverend Al was an authentic Hawaiian presence who provided a thoughtful, touching ceremony. I would recommend them.

Laurie and Al were truly amazing. Calling a different country, talking to a lady you have yet to meet, and not knowing what will happen as you are not there and are relinquishing control is a little scary. Laurie took the reigns, organized our wedding day, and when we arrived in Hawaii we met. They told us to relax and enjoy Mauii, because it was all taken care of. Al was the best, he prepared a beautiful and touching wedding . He even sang in Hawaiian during our ceremony.
I can't say enough about how perfect and relaxing our day was. Not one moment of stress. Laurie even made dinner reservations for us....after the ceremony.
I would recommend them 1000 percent. Thank you!!

Laurie and Al are terrific. My husband and I couldn't have been happier about how our wedding went! I didn't have much time to plan before the event and Laurie made sure everything was taken care and went smoothly. The location was gorgeous, Al was charming, my bouquet was much envied.... Most importantly though, Laurie took all the stress out of the logistics so I could concentrate on my new husband and how happy we both were that day!!

We are still basking in the glow of our beautiful wedding...sigh

Laurie and Reverend Al are WONDERFUL! We can't say enough about them, nor could we ever thank them enough for making our wedding day so amazing and special.
They came highly recommended by a close friend. All it took was one meeting with Laurie to know that she was the wedding planner for us. I felt like I was meeting with a friend. It was instant...We knew that she really "got" us and understood what we wanted for our wedding.

Being a destination wedding, Laurie and I kept in close contact via email and regular phone calls. She is a busy lady...but, she was never too busy to answer my calls or address my concerns. She always made me feel like I was her #1 bride and that she always had time for me. Laurie recommended vendors to us based on our wants. Man, did she nail it! All of our vendors were exceptional!
Laurie is a perfectionist, she is detailed, very organized and she loves what she does.
She organized me, and that is no small task!

The day of the wedding I was a typical frazzled bride. Laurie was my calming force. She took care of me. By the time the wedding was rolling I didn't have a care in the world. I felt like I had a girlfriend with me all day making sure everything went off without a hitch. We had so much fun and no worries because Laurie took care of it ALL!
Our wedding was PERFECTION and the most epic day of our lives. This would not have happened without Laurie and Reverend Al.

Maui is a small Island...ask around. Laurie and Al are the real deal! Everywhere we went we ran into people who knew them...several would say that they had been married by this amazing couple. They always added how much they love and respect them.
We are so blessed and thankful that we found Laurie and Al. They made our day spectacular and exceeded our expectations in every way...we would not hesitate to recommend them to others. We love them!

We couldn’t have made a better choice than Makena Weddings. Reverend Al and Laurie Terry helped us throughout the entire process, from getting our marriage license to helping us select a wonderful secluded beach for our wedding ceremony. Reverend Al’s sincerity and humor created a causal and warm atmosphere. We love how he incorporated the Hawaiian traditions of the “Oli Aloha” greeting chant, and the lei exchange. We highly recommend Makena Weddings to handle your wedding too.

When we decided to get married in Maui we were at a loss of where to start until a friend recommended Laurie and Al at Makena Weddings. From our initial contact with Laurie we were confident we had found the right person to plan our special day. We gave Laurie our wedding colors and let her do her magic. She found the perfect venue at Kukahiko Estates. Laurie is extremely talented and if you give her "creative license" to look after everything from flower selection, table decor and decorations you won't be sorry. We literally showed up, stress free and got married. Reverend Al is so special as well. He made our ceremony very personal and still kept it light. We laughed & we cried....it was perfect. We highly recommend Makena Wedding to anyone planning to get married or have a special event in Maui. Lauire and Al are two of the most honest and kind people we have ever met!! They were a pleasure to work with and we are happy to now call them friends.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Rev. Al and Laurie. They were perfect for our vow renewal. They invited us to their home the day after we landed in beautiful Maui, so we got to meet them and get acquainted. We celebrated our 30 year anniversary, and they have been married 38 years, so they knew firsthand what a milestone that is in a marriage. Extremely easy to work with ~ We had the photographer in place and the ceremony all set up on Makena Surf Beach, and due to Hurricane Ana making herself present a couple of days before, we decided to move the ceremony out one more day to make sure we had a beautiful sunset. Al and Laurie were so accommodating, we were able to move the ceremony a day and Laurie assured me that the weather would cooperate ~ Sure enough, we had our beautiful sunset beach vow renewal and the pictures were phenomenal. Al sang the Hawaiian love song to us and performed the traditional Hawaiian lei exchange ceremony. It couldn't have been more perfect and will be a memory that we will cherish forever.
Thank you, both, for making our day perfect ~
