Fantastic Wedding Planner
Justine was absolutely fantastic to work with from start to finish! Her knowledge of our venue at Kualoa Ranch and connections to various venders proved invaluable. Anytime we had questions or needed help deciding on a specific item Justine was there for us. She recommended several vendor options for each step in the process and coordinated everything for us. I never imagined planning a 70 person destination wedding could be so stress free but it was, thanks to her! The end result was the most beautiful wedding we could have imagined. If you decide to hire Justine you certainly will not be disappointed!Sent on 06/16/2019

Best decision ever!
If you want a stress-free, perfectly planned destination wedding, look no further than Justine from Luana Events!Sent on 06/17/2019
We were both busy students all the way in New York City, never been to Hawaii before, and with no experience at all planning something as complicated as a wedding. From the very beginning, Justine was very accommodating with our schedules to discuss our ideas and vision for the wedding. We also emphasized that we were on a tight budget, and she was able to provide us with many options of venues, vendors, food, etc. that was suitable for us. For us, planning the wedding was mostly a matter of us replying to Justine's emails with our preferences among her options. She has formed great relationships with many vendors all across Hawaii, and it was no surprise when we would hear from the vendors that we were lucky to be in Justine's excellent hands.
Also, something that only people planning their own weddings would quickly realize is that you have no idea where to start for certain things like what rental supples to book and what flowers to get for where! Luckily, Justine took care of all the direct communication with our rental company, florists, venue, etc. and all the paperwork so that we only needed to make very minor changes at the end, saving us tons of time and headache.
Justine is not only great at doing her job, but is also an amazing human being. Besides being extremely experienced and well connected, Justine is also super organized, very easy to communicate to, non-judgmental throughout the whole process and respects every decision and preference of ours, genuine, and trustworthy (we felt comfortable letting her handle every single detail of our wedding form afar and only visited the venue the day before our wedding for the first time).
Our wedding day went perfectly, with Justine and her wonderful assistant running everything behind the scenes. Justine anticipated and managed the only minor thing that came up with poise and she was able to tweak our schedule (a very organized and detailed one that she created for us) a bit to accommodate us. We really could not have asked for a better planner and wedding. In our opinion, she is worth much, much more than what we paid for. Just the ability for us to enjoy Hawaii stress-free in the days leading up to the wedding was well worth the price. It was easily one of the best decisions we have made in planning our wedding. Thank you so much Justine and company!

The Best Ever!
You know it was an awesome event when your family and friends keep telling you that the ‘wedding was perfect’! My secret weapon: Luana Events and Justine Miller! Seriously, I knew Justine was amazing during our planning but she continued to prove it right up until the last minute!!! Planning a wedding from Pennsylvania is such a daunting task and when you’re a perfectionist like myself it’s even more of an insane undertaking. Justine was not only my eyes and ears on the ground but my lifesaver! There are so many things you don’t even think about when starting to plan a wedding (like where will the ice come from? When will the cake be delivered so it doesn't melt in the Hawaii sun?) amongst all the things that you do plan. She was there to help through ever question I had and thoughts I didn’t even know to consider!Sent on 06/06/2019
She is the most calming personality I’ve ever met! Let me tell you, when our flower girl was having a meltdown behind the scenes right as it’s about to be her moment to walk down the aisle, Justine simply takes her in her arms, talks to her in the most. calming. voice, and manages to get her not only to walk down the aisle but to throw flowers out perfectly with a smile on her face!! And this is just one small example of all the little things she did for us!
I literally can not say enough positive things about her and all the staff she brings around. Best decision we made for our big day was hiring Justine and Luana Events!
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
