You can say she LOVES creating for you and with you. Planning and organizing is in her DNA! As a well-respected and knowledgeable wedding professional in the Hawaii Wedding community, Tori has cultivated and maintained amazing relationships with many quality vendors on the Hawaiian Islands. Oh, and she may even tell you about her 20 years of experience teaching Special Education in the California school system and in private practice as an educational therapist (yep, a Masters in Education!) and has worked in retail for several years! She can relate to you on MANY levels.
Tori’s special connection with Hawaii began in 1978 from frequent vacations with her family. It was meant to be that Hawaii was her wedding destination to her late husband Doug. While planning her own destination wedding in 1998, Tori was encouraged by local Maui wedding and event professionals to continue her passion and innate talent as a business, as she offered a very fresh and unique approach to wedding planning in Hawaii. Fortunately, her couples continue to benefit from that very same approach, as she wants couples to have the “above and beyond” experience whether it is a beach wedding for two or a luxurious wedding ceremony and reception for 350. Every Bride and Groom should feel like a VIP on the wedding day and be a part of the wedding planning process. Couples appreciate Tori’s directness and honesty to ensure that they know what to expect for their wedding and vow renewals. Creative, flexible, funny, talented, gracious, giving, affordable, cool under pressure, resourceful, and able to handle any situation are commonly used words to describe Tori.

Tori will help you in so many ways with your wedding. She does not just pass you on to others. She KNOWS flowers, colors, fabrics, lighting, and the inventory of the rental companies. Tori knows what works and does not work, and she will suggest ways to MAKE things work. With a background in teaching special education (elementary school, middle school and high school), as well as a private practice as an Educational Therapist, Tori’s original plan was to do wedding planning “on the side.” However, her business grew so fast that she became a full time wedding planner/coordinator and event designer. Tori also has retail background (and a fondness for shopping!), a party planning background, experience as a bridesmaid (13 times), and destination bride. She can relate to you on ANY level.
