Were we glad to have Laurie as our wedding planner! Laurie has been very helpful from the very beginning. She introduced us to the top local vendors and worked tirelessly with us to iron out all the details. The venue (Kukahiko Estate) was absolutely stunning and the wedding day went flawlessly. Would definitely recommend Laurie if you are looking for someone who's experienced, accommodating, and genuinely caring!

Makena Weddings was a delight to work with. My husband and I celebrated our 25 wedding anniversary on May 10, 2016. On this day we renewed our vows. The ceremony was to be in the beach but because it was raining we had the ceremony on our lanai facing the ocean. Rev. Al and Laurie kept in contact with us hoping the rain would stop. They felt like family. I would recommend this company for your destination wedding or renewal of vows in Maui.

Laurie and Al are awesome people. Professional and easy to work with. They made our wedding day on Makena Surf Beach the best day of our lives. Laurie is easy to talk to and once you meet her it's like you just made another best friend. I broke a nail the day before the wedding and Laurie called her nail salon to get it taken care of for me. She went above and beyond. My now husband is a little hard of hearing. Al made sure he heard every word of the ceremony. He made both of us feel so relaxed and into the moment. A moment in Paradise with no worries. He made us feel and enjoy the beauty of where we were at that moment. Truly a special gift he has. I can't say enough good things about them. If you want that dream wedding then Laurie and Al are your "ONLY" choice. They recommended Marbelle Photography and video. Fred and Jen Joswick, husband and wife team. They are truly a team. They work off each other to perfection. You can tell they know what they are doing and they care. I was so pleased with the 272 photo's I am getting all of them. Amazing job in capturing in a photo how much we are in love. They both make you feel special and comfortable. So to sum it all up if you are getting Maui'd then Makena Wedding and Marbelle Photography are who you need to use to make your wedding day a day to remember.......

If we could give Makena weddings 1000 stars, we would. This is our story...
We are from Canada and we had initially contracted Jenna Kohler of Maui Wedding Coordinators; we paid her in full for our wedding two months before our wedding date. She called us 9 days before our wedding and said she "could not pay our vendors and therefore she could not go ahead with our wedding". We are still fighting to get our money back from Jenna...
Meanwhile, we had 9 days to plan a wedding from scratch. We were devastated, and in shock and complete disbelief that this could happen to us. And we had 30 guests coming from Canada, to a wedding that now was not happening...in 9 days.
We immediately started doing damage control. I contacted Laurie and Cindy from Makena weddings. I told them our story and they assured me from the first moment on the phone that they "would make this happen and not to stress or worry". This was, of course, hard for us to believe after our experience and what we went through with Jenna. But we really didn't have another option, given our circumstances.
It is not small feat to pull together a wedding in 9 days, but Makena weddings was truly amazing. Not only did they make our day so amazing and memorable, but they really did save us from a potentially disastrous situation. I cannot say enough good things about Laurie/Al/Cindy, and how special our day was. They gathered excellent vendors together for our wedding in that short time frame they had to work with... All of them were excellent.
Laurie and Cindy are both wonderful people and very easy to work with. Tim and I put our full trust in Laurie and Cindy, and our wedding couldn't have been more perfect. I cannot emphasize enough how thankful we are for Makena weddings coming to our rescue. And literally ...they RESCUED us. Sounds cheesy, but it's true.
I can ASSURE you that Makena weddings will make your day magical. Not to mention the 50+ 5-star reviews they have...that is pretty telling iIMO....

Laurie was absolutely wonderful! The experience was beyond-painless, and we were absolutely stoked with the entire ceremony, from the location, to the officiant Reverend Al, to the musician, to the photographer, to... well... EVERYTHING!

We'll definitely use Laurie again! ;)

My husband and I planned a candlelight dinner the day after our Maui wedding in the Makena Surf Beach. It was a prefect evening to celebrate our new journey as husband and wife. From the beginning to the end it was prefect. From the service, location, and food was amazing.
