Hire Justine - you will not regret it.
Hire Justine, you simply won't regret it. I can remember reading these reviews when starting out on the planing process...
My husband and I opted for Justine's mid-level package. I didn't want a "day of" coordinator who wasn't involved in the planning. Also, my experience thus far was that dealing with vendors in Hawaii is sometimes frustrating, and I needed help. I was also fine to do a good amount of research and heavy lifting. All-in-all, this package worked well for us.
We're Canadian and so cost was definitely something we were mindful of given unfavourable exchange rates. However, we also had about 60 guests and wanted to show our guests a great time and something special for coming so far. We chose Paliku Gardens at Kualoa Ranch as our venue (before hiring Justine). Justine was well familiar with the venue and how the set-up would be optimal. During the planning process, Justine was thoughtful, organized, responsive throughout, kept me on track. Her positivity was also something I appreciated as the stress of wedding planning can be overwhelming at times. She was knowledgeable of vendors and how they worked, and some of the finer details between them. I would often ask for her opinion and she provide valuable input to help me execute a vision, all while helping me spend wisely and not unnecessarily. Most importantly, the day of, she completely took control of the event, the pacing, etc. My husband and I truly were able to enjoy the event. Many of my guests complemented us on how professional, and well executed the day and her team was.
We are grateful to Justine for everything. She went over and above in many ways.Sent on 12/01/2019

Justine is the best!
It was a very easy decision to go with Justine as the wedding coordinator for my husband and I. We had already picked out the venue at Kualoa Ranch at Paliku Gardens and they recommended a couple of wedding coordinators they worked with previously. Justine was one of the names that came up and we knew instantly we wanted to work with her when we spoke to her over the phone. We had phone screened a couple of coordinators that was recommended and although she was priced higher, her services made sense as she did more than just the day of wedding coordinating. During our call, she made suggestions and knowledgeable recommendations to help point us in the right direction. This made us feel comfortable going with her especially planning a wedding from California. We did most of our communication through email and she never missed a beat. She provided vendors and recommendations and helped with every little detail and also asked if I will be bringing certain things so it wouldn’t be left out. I commend her services and professionalism before and during the wedding. She made all things run smoothly from beginning to end and made our time in Hawaii more enjoyable as she ensure us everything was taken care of and it was. It is definitely a no brainer to go with Justine. You will not regret going with her!Sent on 12/04/2019

Hiring Luana Events was our best wedding decision
Justine made the difficult task of planning a wedding in Hawaii from Australia an enjoyable experience. Armed with her list of preferred vendors our day was seamless and one that we were able to soak up and enjoy as Justine had everything under control. She's attentive, an amazing communicator and has a very calming presence. Hiring Justine, taking on her advice and allowing her the space to do what she does best is truly what made our day one of the happiest of our lives.Sent on 11/26/2019
Justine Miller of Luana Events is a fantastic event planner and a wonderful, down-to-earth human being. Our band was recently hired to perform for the ceremony, reception and dance party portions of a wedding at Ke Iki Bungalows on the North Shore, and Luana Events was hired as the wedding planner and day-of event coordinator. We have had problems in the past with wedding planners being unresponsive or downright flaky prior to the event. Justine was completely professional and absolutely on the ball. She is very detail oriented, responsive, and, the best of all, you can tell she really cares that her client has the best wedding experience possible as evidenced in her care and attention to detail with all the vendors to make sure every moment happens exactly as planned. Some wedding planners treat their vendors poorly but Justine is caring, helpful, willing to go the extra mile if you need anything, will answer questions promptly, and is cool as a cucumber under pressure. She not only treated our relationship as if we were collaborators (versus "hired help") but I witnessed her great treatment of the other vendors as well, even when there were little hiccups throughout the day. There were several moving parts for Justine to manage on the day of the wedding and she handled each one with joy and professionalism. The day ran seamlessly, we always knew where and when we needed to be in place to perform, and the guests, and the bride and groom, had a fantastic day! Even though she had been on her feet for over 12 hours rushing around making sure every detail was covered Justine was there at the very end personally thanking guests for coming and cleaning up to make sure the bride and groom could go enjoy their bonfire on the beach with their friends and family. We highly recommend hiring Justine Miller and Luana Events for your next event or wedding. She is an A++! Much aloha to you, Justine! ~ Annie + Curt
