Maluaka Beach
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I consider South Maluaka to be one of the most beautiful beaches on the south side of Maui. The cobblestone pathway in front of the beach created a beautiful entrance and wonderful photo opportunity. Our intimate wedding for two was held in the sand and it seemed like we were the only people there! Other visitors to the beach were extremely courteous of our wedding and made sure to give us our space. After the wedding we took a walk down the long beach and were able to capture many great beach photos. If you are considering a semi-private beach location for your ceremony I would definitely consider South Maluaka.

Luisa Ascensao
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Luisa Ascensio is a wonderful makeup artist. I told her I wanted my makeup to look subtle and elegant and she did just that. She only uses the finest quality makeup. My skin looked smooth, even toned and flawless. Luisa was really sweet and I felt very comfortable with her as my makeup artist.

Alii Leis
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Ali'i Leis created beautiful leis for our wedding ceremony. They had so many different leis to choose from with we really enjoyed getting to pick them out. The flowers were fresh and wonderfully fragrant. I would definitely recommend Ali'I Leis to anyone looking to add a little Hawaiian touch to their wedding ceremony.

Rev. Vance Ali'i Rosete
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Vance Rosete is amazing! Every word he spoke was extremely genuine and well rehearsed. We chose to go with a non-denominational ceremony due to our different religions. He made us feel so comfortable and relaxed the entire time. He allowed us to put our own touches on the ceremony which included reciting our own vows and breaking of the glass. Vance was a wonderful addition to our wedding. I would recommend him to anyone!

Maui Day Spa (Robbie Marochi)
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
Robbie Marochi is an excellent hair stylist. She took my long, thick, straight hair and styled it half up with tons of beautiful curls. I had it done at 2pm and it still looked great when I arrived to my hotel room at midnight! She did a great job of tying my veil and tiara into my hairdo. My only complaint would be that she spent a lot of the time talking about how her past relationships had gone bad. Way too much talk of divorce! Not necessarily what you want to hear on your wedding day!

Feast On The Beach /Tiki Torch Productions
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Raja created us an exquisite dinner for two on the beach. Every course was a creative mix of exotic and delicious foods. He put a lot of thought and effort into each course and timed the delivery perfectly. Our only problem was in terms of payment. Our wedding planner gave him our check at the beginning of the meal. Rather than work it out with her he proceeded to interrupt our first course by telling us he couldn't accept an out of state check. We frantically tried to figure out how to pay him as we didn't have enough cash on us. We ended up working it out the next day although it did put a bit of a damper on the meal.

Country Bouquets
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Country Bouquets created the most beautiful bouquet that I have ever seen! I requested something tropical and unique and they created just that! They catered to every one of my requests for colors and types of flowers. If anyone can create the bouquet of your dreams it's Country Bouquets.

Jackie Tamas Events
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Jackie Tamas is simply amazing! She took all the stress out of our wedding plans. Every time I would call her worrying about some aspect of the wedding she would calmly tell me everything was already taken care of, and then she would walk me through every step of my question. Jackie was always a step ahead of us by anticipating every one of our needs. She had excellent ideas and even went above and beyond by surprising us with special touches. She was extremely knowledgeable of all the different vendors we asked about and never pushed us into using any particular company. I don't know what we would have done without Jackie. She took would could have been an extremely stressful day and made it the wedding of our dreams!

Grand Wailea
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
We stayed at the Grand Wailea the week of our wedding. We received a complimentary upgrade to a top floor suite, which was amazing! The entire time was incredible. But keep in mind that some of the staff is not always full of 5 star service. The valet and the bell desk were down right rude. Otherwise, the stay was fantastic.

Mike Sidney Photography
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I cannot say enough good things about Mike Sidney Photography! Our photos were absolutely stunning! Mike has a way with people and made us feel so comfortable. He captured every moment beautifully. People can't stop talking about how great our photos turned out! To have something so wonderful to share with our family and friends who couldn't attend the wedding is absolutely priceless.
