Alii Leis
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I selected the tuberose lei for myself and the maile lei with tuberose for my husband. The leis had the best smell and did not look wilted or beat up at all. They were clearly made with quality flowers.

Anne Durham (flute, keyboard, piano, harp)
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I have two classical singers in my family so we hired Anne to accompany them. She really bent over backward to accommodate their schedules for rehearsal times. Anne played beautifully. She was a great find!

Akina Aloha Tours
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
This service as over priced. We wanted a charter for our guests to go from the Chapel to the Maui Ocean Center. They were another instance of a company that kept trying to gouge us. I was not impressed.

Vanessa Thompson - Silver Stitch
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
At the recommendation of my coordinator, I had my bridal salon send my gown directly to the dress presser after my final fitting. She signed for the Fed Ex package and had my gown ready and waiting for me upon my arrival on Maui. Her service was great and she was completely professional.

Grand Wailea
 
( 2.0 / 5.0 )
The Grand Wailea will try to find any way they can to charge you for things. We decided to get married in the Chapel. It's a beautiful place and knew that it was perfect for us when we saw the first photos. At every point of working with the Grand Wailea, they tried to make up charges. For power. For water service. For the rehearsal. I am so glad I had a wedding coordinator who knew how to talk to them. Any time they would sent me something it was wrong and over charging us. Our coordinator would then start the fight with them. It was nice having someone on our side, because the hotel certainly wasn't.

Maui Ocean Center
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
As a diving instructor, I knew I wanted to have my wedding reception somewhere that included my passion. The Maui Ocean Center was a perfect fit. The staff was impressive and accommodated just about all of our requests. Instead of having a DJ after dinner, we wanted to have a live dive show for our guests. The diver had a mic and talked to a guide while our guests looked on in awe. We really enjoyed doing something unique that allowed our guests to get a real flavor of what the islands are about.

Country Bouquets
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
My bouquet, the alter arrangements, the centerpieces and the pew decor will all handled by Country Bouquets. They did an excellent job on each of the items.

KLJ Productions
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Kevin did the sound for the ceremony. We needed mics so our guests could hear us, and mics from the musicians. The Grand Wailea wanted to charge us a fortune for this. Kevin was reasonable and very accommodating. I'm glad our coordinator knew about him so that we didn't get stuck with the hotel's sound people.

Wailea Limousine
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Andrew and I took a limo to the Maui Ocean Center after the ceremony. It was nice to have the time alone with my husband on our wedding day. We had such a good time talking and reconnecting after the busy day.

Bon Jons
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
My husband ordered his tuxedo through Bon Jons. It was delivered to Maui before we arrived on the island and it was already pressed and ready to go. The service was great, and we got to keep the tux for 5 days instead of worrying about rushing to get it back to them the morning after the wedding. This was a good value, and the tux was very high quality.

Hawaii Video Memories
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We met with Hawaii Video Memories before the wedding day and they won us over immediately. They are long established and worth the money. The video looked great and we got lots of copies for our family members to remember their time in Hawaii.

( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I really liked Tad's style. I was a little disappointed that he was late on our wedding day. Something about traffic, but this is the reason that he only gets 4 stars. He did make up for this, though. My coordinator told him that the only way to make this right was to makeup the time lost by covering part of our reception. It was a classy move and kept me feeling like he was working in our best interests. The pictures were beautiful, and in hindsight I wish I would have hired him for more coverage time.

Jackie Tamas Events
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
At first my husband didn't see any reason to hire a coordinator. But after his first interrogation/phone call with her, he got it. The money she saved us on so many elements more than covered the cost of her services. But even better, she gave us the peace of mind from knowing we had someone on our side thousands of miles away. I only hired her for the ceremony, but I should have hired her for the reception, too, because there was more to it than I originally realized. Even thought I hadn't paid her, she did a lot of work for the reception when she saw that I was getting stressed out. She didn't charge us for this. Having her there to keep the vendors in line allowed me to enjoy my wedding day. She did so many things that were out of the scope of her job (like hemming a flower girl dress by hand the morning of the wedding) and pulling out a stain stick when my Dad spilled something on his shirt. She really had everything covered. I cannot say thank you enough for all that she did.

Old Lahaina Luau
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I read a lot of reviews telling us that the Old Lahaina Luau was worth the money. They were right. The show didn't come across as cheesy or touristy. It felt more Hawaiian than almost anything I can think of. This was a great way to spend an evening with family and friends. Note: bring your camera.

Mama's Fish House
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I took my bridesmaids here instead of doing a bachelorette party. The food was great, the service was amazing, and the views were breathtaking. I ended up coming back after the wedding with my husband so we could enjoy this remarkable restaurant.
