    Perfect Destination Wedding

    Laurie & Cindy were awesome! Organising a destination wedding may have challenges, but we did not encounter any. Everything was seamless and they were able to organise everything we asked for. We found it easy to send photos of what we were looking for and Laurie and Cindy worked their magic to make it happen. Very helpful to see detailed budgets and timelines as so we could be flexible and incorporate exactly what we wanted. Our wedding day was perfect and we would not change a thing. Thanks for all of your help Laurie & Cindy! Will highly recommend your services to anyone trying to get married on Maui. Lastly, if anyone is considering Olowalu Plantation House for your wedding venue, do it! That place is unreal awesome!

    I truly can't say enough about Makena Weddings

    There are no words to describe Makena Weddings, (Laurie, Cindy, and Al) Our wedding planning process was completely stress-free from the day we picked our date until the end of the evening of our Wedding day. They went above and beyond in so many ways. Our day could not have been better and our guests even told us that it was the most beautiful wedding they have ever been to. Laurie made everyone in our bridal party so at ease and added some beautiful touches that we didn't even think of. Al's ceremony was so beautiful and personal. Laurie was there every step of the way to answer questions and help with coordinating with our vendors. (And I had A LOT of questions along the way) and even though we were so far away, I never felt like I couldn't call or email. Laurie was always so quick to get back to me every time. She has been in the business for so long and knew exactly who would work best with us. I really can't say enough about Makena Weddings. We are so grateful to them for helping to make our day so perfect.
