I highly recommend Makena Weddings. Cindy planned our wedding in November 2017 at Kukahiko Estate in Maui and she was fantastic. She was very patient with me as I peppered her with questions, ideas and photos! We spoke and corresponded over email so many times in the months leading up to the wedding. We were having a small wedding and were conscious of budget and Cindy was very helpful in finding ways for us to keep our budget in check. She really understood our vision of how we wanted the day to go and had great ideas and advice. We live in New York and had been to Maui a few times on vacation. But it was a leap of faith (especially for a Type A personality!) to have our wedding there when we weren’t able to fly out and see the venue, meet the officiant and vendors or taste food ahead of time. Cindy guided us through the whole thing and we trusted her judgment- I’m so happy we did. When we arrived on the island we met with Cindy and went to see Kukahiko Estate, which was even more beautiful than it was in the pictures- just like she said it would be! Our wedding day was absolutely perfect- I cannot say enough about how beautifully it all came together. Cindy executed everything behind the scenes and to us the whole event was seamless. We used Makena Weddings Florals for our flowers and everything was stunning! They did the tables in greenery, pineapples and candles and strung up lights in the trees and it all looked beautiful. It was exactly what we wanted. I told Cindy after the wedding that I felt like she had been inside my head because everything was exactly how I had envisioned and dreamed it would be. Every detail was as we had discussed- both big and small. Because Cindy had everything completely in hand, we were able to just focus on enjoying ourselves and savoring every minute of our wedding day. All of our friends and family were blown away by how gorgeous the wedding turned out. I can recommend Cindy and Makena Weddings without reservation!

Makena Weddings is the most amazing wedding planning group out there. We wanted a small wedding with just close family and Laurie, Cindy, and Al could not have made the entire experience more perfect. It was absolutely beautiful and even after a horrible storm knocked out the power to the entire island we ended up having the most wonderful, ideal wedding day. Our family have not stopped talking about it! Mahalo nui loa Makena Weddings for giving us the most amazing no stress experience.
