We did not know where to being as we searched for wedding ceremony options in Maui...we came across Paradise Maui Weddings and we blown away by the speedy response from Klaus! He put us in touch with Darcie P., our wedding coordinator and we were off and running with less than 3 months to plan the wedding of our dreams! It was so turn key from the moment had our first call to tell her our vision of our special day! We had our wedding at DT Flemings beach and reception at Duke's Beach House... everything from the flowers, cake to the small details of our wedding favors were on point. We were so thankful the photographer, Penny Palmer took our photos and captured every moment and every detail. All of it was AMAZING!!! We are Happily Mauied!!! Our family and friends were blown away by our destination wedding. We have the photos, the video and all the memories from start to finish of our wedding day on 10.11.2014. It was truly a dream come true wedding!!! We would HIGHLY recommend Paradise Maui Weddings to EVERYONE we know and anyone reading this post! Mahalo Paradise Maui Weddings!!! - J & C Ellis

I had an overall great experience with Paradise Maui weddings and I would recommend them. I was a little bit nervous at the beginning (they don't really contact you early about details and I felt like my coordinator was confusing me with other brides), but Klaus e-mailed and called me personally to reassure me. As the date grew close, my coordinator (Vincent) sent me a lot of e-mails and was very patient with all of the last-minute changes that I wanted to make.

The big day went off without a hitch. Vincent helped me get a license on a Sunday (I came to Maui on the cruise ship, so I was SUPER stressed out about that) and was waiting for me on the morning of the ceremony. I cannot say enough great things about the officiant we got (Patrick Cerizio). He blew the conch shell, said a prayer in hawaiian, sand, played the ukelele and made the whole thing VERY "island" - which is exactly what we wanted. We had a tiny wedding (5 guests), but it was perfect.

Vincent hung around after the ceremony and took a lot of pictures. I got the proofs about a week later and they were fantastic. I was really impressed with the way that he was able to capture the color and light.

The only tiny glitch is that we had ordered the "Salute to Romance" package which (I thought) came with a live webcast of the ceremony. Either I misunderstood or someone forgot. There was no webcast, but it wasn't a huge big deal. The handful of people who were going to watch were okay with it and everything else was so great that I didn't want to quibble. If it is super important to you, I recommend that you verify before you book.

I cannot say enough good things about Paradise Maui Wedding Planning. Bonnie Carpenter was my wedding planner and she was absolutely amazing. I live in Canada and would classify myself as a "nit-picky" bride at best....and Bonnie was with me through it all. All of the millions of emails and text messages were answered promptly (or she would send me an email acknowledging that she received my email and that I would have a response in the next day or two). She worked so hard to get me the flowers I wanted (and although we weren't successful with my first option, she found the ONLY garden roses in Hawaii and had them on my reception table as a nice suprise). She was very calm and coordinated through the entire ceremony and reception.

Bonnie's husband Jon was our photographer (although Bonnie had a camera in her hands most of the time too!). Jon was awesome!! He has such a warm heart and a very vibrant spirit! He kept us upbeat and smiling through the whole day. We upgraded to the full coverage package of photos and are SOO happy that we did. He took the time to make sure every shot was perfect and anything I wanted....he made happen. He made my new husband and myself feel at ease and relaxed while posing for the more difficult photos (ie. the romantic dip on the beach, LOL). One thing that really impressed me was when there was a moment of panic. I was wearing my future husband's great grandmothers heirloom ring for the ceremony and realized during pictures that I had lost it somewhere. Jon was already on the phone with getting us a metal detector and Bonnie was on her hands and knees looking in the grass. It was my sister (and MOH) who ended up finding it before any of our guests even knew what had happened. But during that extremely stressful time, Jon and Bonnie were upbeat and did not panic. They actually calmed me down and reassured me that we would find it. They are very professional, kind, and beautiful people that made my day the most special day to remember. It wouldn't have been so successful without them (especially if I had to plan all of this by myself from so far away!)

5+ Stars in my books! Thanks Bonnie and Jon for all of your hard work!

Bonnie and John were fabulous. Me and my now husband are both active duty military and they truly were so flexible and accommodating of us! With my pending deployment to Afghanistan looming they made planning my big day one less stress stressor in my life! The photos are starting to come in and they are just wonderful and seem to have captured the essence of our wedding. Bonnie and John made taking all those pictures after the wedding not a drag and even my guests were having fun! Would definitely recommend this service to any of my friends and family looking to get married on Maui! Mahalo Bonnie and John! :) Brandy Masters

We had the absolute best experience with the team at Paradise Maui Weddings! Bonnie our coordinator had all the details covered, from setting up our license appointment to getting a stylist (Jackie, who is a superstar), to photography Lauren (amazing her keen eye for detail will pay off in the final photos), flowers and of course Reverend Sonny who in addition to giving us a wonderful ceremony actually delivered our certified temporary wedding certificate, along with a Maui calendar (we love you Sonny). And then the beach location, unbelievable! There was nothing overlooked by Bonnie and her team. My only criticism is the web site, it can be somewhat confusing, and difficult to pay, but worth it! These guy deliver! Btw, I've read some other review talking about pictures, these guys sent us a few unedited photos immediately, John, the editor was responsive to our need to have a photo for announcements, and provided a website where you can select whatever photos you like. If I had a year to plan a wedding I could not have done anything better!

Thank you Paradise Maui Weddings for helping make this amazing day even more amazing, and stress free!

After extensive research, we finally chose Paradise Maui Wedding to coordinate our special day. Through Bonnie we were able to book our desired date, Dec.15 2011, and to top it off we were able to secure the time slot of 5:30 pm for a sunset ceremony. Unfortunately, my husband and I were the only ones to show up for our ceremony. Somehow the minister was never retained to perform our ceremony. Bonnie was however, able to locate the minister and he agreed to meet us at the beach location, and perform the ceremony. Our "sunset wedding" became a "the sun has already set" wedding.

Bonnie was very apologetic and even went as far as to send along her husband John(JMC Photography of Maui) to photograph our ceremony and the promise of a full collection and a print package at no cost to us. Seven months later, and after several phone calls and numerous emails, we are still waiting to receive the print package.

Oh, and the 8.5x11 decorative wedding certificate.....never received that either!

I'm from Michigan and found Paradise Maui Wedding planners on-line. They provided a BASIC service - nothing special or exceptional as far as commitment to their business - more of take your money and do the bare minimum. They were not worth the money for the "Plumaria" package - you can provide yourself these services for less than 200.00. $65 for a license and $100-150 for officiant. ts JULY 22 2012 - and we just NOW got the "decorative" marriage license - PROMISED the day of the wedding - exactly 8 months ago. Not only did it come in the mail bent - it wasn't even filled out! Its total worthless and a total waste of energy and frustration trying to get them to send it.

Moreover, the recommended JMC Photography - they turned out to be a real disappointment! They started out pleasant enough - but they too didn't send what promised until 8 months later. Also very basic in what they provided - in fact we went back to our marriage site the next day and took better photos with our Smart Phone than the pictures they provided. No originality to their photos - they took the same poses over 10 -15 times - so it seemed like a lot of pictures were taking - but they basically were the same and didn't leave much to choose from. Don't expect any touch ups either. They two were a waste of money. Do the research and find your own photographer and if your from out of town - you would be better served to bring your own photographer along.

Paradise Maui Weddings is spectacular to work with! Jennifer, our wedding coordinator was professional, courteous, always responded in a timely manner, and clearly communicated and answered questions. Jennifer was very flexible and accomodated our requests for additional services without any pause. Our wedding ceremony on Ulua Beach in Wailea was perfect. Laki, our minister provided a service that went WAY past our expectations; we couldn't have been happier. Laki worked in the guest lei ceremony we wanted to include at the last minute and that ended up being one of the more special aspects of our ceremony. Olaf, the photographer, helped us select the perfect spot to get married on the beach to ensure our photo's would turn out amazing, which they did. Olaf took over 400 pictures, including before, during, and after the ceremony and with our guests. The entire wedding package was more than we could have asked for and I would recommend Paradise Maui Weddings with the highest confidence. Go with these guys and they will ensure your wedding is everything you wanted, expected, and more!! Julie

We had an incredible relaxed and fun day! All of the hassle that i saw with friends on weddings i didn't want that and Paradise maui weddings did a great job in arranging it just as we wanted. Even with a 12 hour timezone difference, the contact was great and to point. Although we hadn't plan a lot of special things, everything was fully on time and as we agreed. Jennifer helped us getting someone to our hotel for doing hair and makeup and she did a great job providing us with the webcast.She even had the flexibillity to arrange our wedding last minute on a beach that had been washed away by big surf. We really wanted to go to Makena cove and she made it happen. Also we got Pastor Laki Kaahmanu as we wanted. What a great man! He precisely knew how to go about with us. He through in some fun and made us feel really comfortable. We had the plumeria package, and Pastor Laki gave us really nice flowers and we had fake champagne at the end from Jennifer. Then there was John Carpenter, our photographer. Never have i seen a guy working so hard for his money :D He was funny, knew what to say to us to get the nice pictures and stayed way longer then we expected. I checked out some other photographers and their photos before we went to Maui and was a bit dissapointed so i was really in doubt whether i should not arrange for a photographer seperately, mostly because i am really picky when it comes to photography. Well, John knows how to shoot! He has topclass material, the lighting was perfect and he performed some really cool editing. This guy is great. So all in all, the experience was just perfect. I really hope we can come back in a couple of years and have the experience again by renewing vows or something!

I spent countless nights trying to research which wedding planning company to go with and ended up choosing this one after my first choice didn't have my date available. In retrospect, I wish I would've moved our wedding date and gone with our first choice.

This company never went out of their way to make my day feel special, and their photographer actually made me cry! Dealing with Jennifer the wedding planner via email was just okay. Sometimes she responded quickly, other times it took her days to get back to me. She wasn't even there on our wedding day. I had to ask her for all the details like directions to the wedding site, etc. She was never forthcoming about anything, I always had to dig for the info. The vows that were listed on their website were completely different from the vows the pastor read, however, the only highlight in this experience was the pastor himself. We were very happy with Pastor Robert. He was genuinely nice and easy to get along with.

I chose the "Plumeria Package" which was supposed to come with 24 pictures on a cd. We met up with the photographer, Olaf, 2 days after the wedding to go through the pics and he handed us a cd which was actually a video slideshow of 24 pictures that weren't even in picture format (impossible to make prints from). We didn't even get to choose the 24 pics. He had done that on his own and of course they were some of the worst of the bunch, just so we'd have to buy an upgraded package (which ranged in price from $700-$1500)! The whole meeting he was just trying to up-sell us on everything under the sun. He was worse than a car salesman. He took over 500 pictures and of that, only 51 (exactly) were nice. When I told him I just wanted to choose our 24 he stated that he'd already done that for us, and that to choose our own 24 was going to cost much more. We became increasingly frustrated since the wedding package we paid for stated 24 pictures were included, not 24 pictures chosen by a slimy photographer. Needless to say I left upset and crying. He later emailed me a link of the pictures and said that I could choose the 24, but made it seem like he was doing me a favor (when in fact he was doing what the package stated was included)!

I will say that there were a few pros to this company. If you liked them on facebook you got a free bouquet, they have a name your price feature (so we did pay a little less than the package price), and Jennifer did set up the marriage license appointment.

However, for us the cons far, far, far out weighed the pros. Please save yourself the headache and go with a more reputable company to plan your perfect day.

He later emailed me a link of the pictures and said that I could choose the 24, but made it seem like he was doing me a favor (when in fact he was doing what the package stated was included)!

I will say that there were a few pros to this company. If you liked them on facebook you got a free bouquet, they have a name your price feature (so we did pay a little less than the package price), and Jennifer did set up the marriage license appointment.

However, for us the cons far, far, far out weighed the pros. Please save yourself the headache and go with a more reputable company to plan your perfect day. Read less
