There are weddings and then there are Maka planned weddings. My wife and I could not have been happier with Big Island Parties! Everything was perfect and stress free! Maka's planning is second to none, all others could only dream of achieving her greatness. Truly a memorable experience!Sent on 11/08/2016

This was a private gathering of 30 people on ocean front property. Maka catered 2 nights for this small crowd. The first night she offered a healthy & delicious buffet that supremely satisfied the guests, some of which were vegans, vegetarians and traditionalists! The next meal was a full-on Luau experience complete with 2 man band, a full Polynesian show and a buffet of Maka's tasty and traditional Hawaiian fare. Maka graciously hosted this event with a wonderful laid back Hawaiian style ease which is a gift she exudes. Anyone would be blessed to have Maka take care of all of their party or wedding needs. She is authentically the best!Sent on 06/02/2016

Maka & Big Island Parties totally made my reception! Maka belted out 'At Last' for our dance and we were treated to her incredible music that mesmerized everyone. She and her excellent sound system got everyone up dancing. Working with her couldn't have been easier and more wonderful! I very highly recommend Big Island Parties !Sent on 03/10/2015
