Jamie and Laurie,
We want to express you to you our deepest gratitude for our Winter Solstice wedding. You two are amazing in every way. Jamie, your voice filled the land with love and beauty. It bought tears to our eyes watching you sing. We will forever cherish the memories. And Laurie, I actually can't even put into words how grateful I am that you swooped in and created the day we envisioned. You made every moment perfect, easy and stress-free. We felt so cared for and could fully enjoy our wedding. Mahalo, M & A

My husband and I can't thank Lori and Jamie enough for the wonderful job they did in planning our wedding! Having been to Maui several times before, my husband and I knew we wanted to get married there. We were fortunate enough to take a scouting trip to Maui about 7 months before our wedding and got to meet with Lori and Jamie beforehand. They were so helpful and Lori made several appointments for us while we were in Maui to do cake tastings, food tastings, venue appointments, and meeting with photographers etc. Throughout the planning process, Lori was always available to have a call or respond to an email whenever we had any questions. We arrived to Maui about 5 days before our wedding, and everyone kept asking me if I was nervous or stressed, but for the most part I wasn't. I felt like maybe I should be stressed out, but honestly I was pretty calm in the days leading up to the wedding. Lori took care of everything so I didn't have to worry about the details of the wedding day itself. And our wedding was absolutely beautiful! Lori did a wonderful job coordinating with all of our vendors and she really captured my vision even better than I could have imagined! The day really did go by in a blur, and my husband and I really got to just relax and have fun with our guests. We didn't have to worry about a single thing on our wedding day, and I can't thank Lori enough for that! Also, we were very lucky to have her husband, Jamie, sing at our wedding. Everyone really loved this touch and said what a wonderful job he did. We ended up buying a few of his CDs that Jamie signed for us that we gave to our parents as a fun little memento from our wedding. I definitely recommend both Lori and Jamie for your wedding planning, they are definitely worth it!

Lori and Jamie Lawrence are awesome! Lori was so fast to respond to all my emails before the wedding. Then the day of the wedding she made sure everything went perfect. Jamie did an amazing job singing and playing the guitar during the first half of our wedding. Our wedding was perfect, Lori thought of everything and she gave the best recommendations for everything! The Olowalu plantation house is the perfect venue! Defiantly would recommend them both!!:)

I can't even begin to express my sincere appreciation for Lori and Jamie Lawrence of Tropical Maui weddings. My husband says that it was worth every penny, and I can assure you that it was.:)

We are from the Chicagoland area, so it would have been incredibly difficult to put everything together without some help directly in Maui, so I started my search. I noticed several rave reviews on Yelp for TMW, so I reached directly out to one of the brides who also had her wedding at Olowalu Plantation house, and she couldn't have had more wonderful things to say about her experience, so I took a leap of faith and contacted Lori, and I truly couldn't been more pleased with having made that decision. It turns out that she is a super organized ex-grade school teacher from the midwest turned wedding planner once she met the love of her life in Maui while on vacation. I'm pretty sure that her story alone sold me.:) But what also made a big difference to me is that she just charged a flat fee instead of being percentage based like I had heard that a lot of other coordinators were, and I felt a lot more comfortable with that scenario. After having spoken with us, she gave us a list of vendors that she's worked with in the past and has had success with, and we went from there. From the list we chose DJ Del, Louis Hiragana Floral Design,Kirsty Sinclair with Aloha Bars Maui, Sugar Beach Bake Shop, Jamie Lawrence, Cafe O'Lei Catering, Pastor Kale, Ohana Films, MeiLi Autumn Beauty, and Joanna Tano Photography. I truly could not be more pleased with each and every vendor that Lori recommended. Not to mention, all of the amazing things that she does to help out herself. She is there from the very beginning of the day until the end. She is truly amazing at what she does, and I cannot thank her enough for all of her support and guidance during such a special time in our lives.

Lori and Jamie were wonderful! Lori is so sweet and really pays attention to detail. We had Tropical Maui Weddings plan our ceremony (our dinner we handled ourselves along with our hotel wedding coordinator). Since we were doing a destination wedding and traveling from Las Vegas, she had to learn what I liked style-wise from phone calls and emails. She learned my taste quickly and provided options and insight into what she thought I would like. Although we did end up spending a lot more than initially planned, it was worth it and we got our dream wedding. She also was great when I changed my mind on a few details such as arch and chairs two days before the wedding (after seeing another one set up during our walk through of the site).

As for our music, Jamie, is so talented! He played the guitar and sang at our ceremony and it was amazing! I would highly recommend them when planning a wedding on Maui.

Lori was FANTASTIC! We loved working with her, she opened her home up to us every time we came to Maui to work on wedding details! We had a vision and she made it happen, it was a romantic seaside wedding! Lori was really good about listening to our ideas and was very open to trying new things. She gave us honest opinions about vendors and help to choose what was right for our budget. Lori was professional yet maintained a sense of the aloha spirit. You can tell she really loves her job and knows what she is doing. My family loved her too!

Lori & Jamie are probably 2 of the nicest people we have ever met. It’s not easy planning a wedding from another country, especially when you are a control freak like I am. Lori was such a calming presence and so helpful along the way. She works with some incredible vendors and will listen to what you want and offer her suggestions on who would be best based on your budget and your vision. We met Lori and Jamie at their house a few days before the wedding and we knew as soon as we met them that we couldn’t have made a better selection for our wedding coordinator. She leant us a local iphone which was beyond helpful to have as Canadians having to pay crazy data roaming fees. She made sure we were completely prepared for the day, set us up to get our marriage license, and let us borrow some décor to make our wedding day that much more beautiful. She is a complete expert and has great ideas. She met us at our ceremony site the day before the wedding to pick out the ceremony location and make sure we knew exactly what was going to happen on the day. We couldn't have been happier with Lori and she truly added to our incredible day. Thank you Lori & Jamie for all that you did for us.

I had a wonderful experience with Lori & Jaime! Everyone asked how planning a wedding from the mainland was & I told them it was my planner who put it together! I really enjoyed doing the DIY side of things but she was in contact with the vendors, presented me with options, let us choose items from her storage and was always available to chat with if I had any questions.

When I initially contacted Lori, I was really just shopping around for a planner but she was so thorough on the phone during our first conversation that I knew we had to hire her! I worked for a wedding planner for years and was pretty particular about what I wanted for my big day as far as what it was going to look like and where we stood as budget was concerned. She is very responsive via e-mail and very patient with all my questions. We were in contact for a year and a half before the big day and the day went SO smoothly!! I knew I didn't have anything to worry about with her in charge... so I didn't! I would recommend Lori and Jaime to anyone headed to Maui for their big day =)

In looking for someone to help coordinate our wedding in Maui, we did what I am sure most couples do, search the internet. In doing so, we came across many different options. One of the things that caught our eye was their website – tropicalmauiweddings.com. It was very informative and user friendly. During our first telephone conversation with Lori Lawrence we knew we had found the right place to help with our wedding ceremony. Lori is very down to earth and by the time we finished our conversation with her, we felt like we had been talking to an old friend. She was so warm and personable.

We are a lesbian couple and were treated with the utmost of respect. We put all of trust in Tropical Maui Weddings and never once questioned their ideas, suggestions, etc. Lori and Jamie Lawrence do exceptional work and take care of so many details. They lessened the stress for us so we didn’t have to worry with all of the fine details. Jamie sang a couple of songs at our wedding and hearing his voice will just give you chills. Absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much Tropical Maui Weddings for all you did to make our special day so incredibly special to us. We highly recommend Tropical Maui Weddings for your destination wedding. No ceremony is too big or too small.

I can't even begin to describe the amazing work that Lori provided for me. Lori is the most wonderful planner ever! She was very attentive to my needs and budget. Lori was very honest and always responded to me when I had questions. She has great referrals for everything you could possible need ... and then some!! I loved working with Lori and her husband Jaime- they are my new "ohana" (family) in Maui! I was fortunate enough to meet with her 3 times before my big event and she was extremely hospitable. My husband, family, and all our friends were beyond impressed with everything she did! It has been 2 months later and people are still talking about my wedding and sharing picture! Everyone had so much fun! Even when I had last minute requests and a huge increase of guests- she accommodated everything and did and awesome job. On the day of the wedding she was very attentive and I did not have to worry about anything and had the time of my life! I can't say enough about Lori- she made our day the event of the year and lifetime!
