On WeddingWire since 2008


We are Lori and Jamie Lawrence of Tropical Maui Weddings. We will see to it that your wedding day is everything you imagined it would be.... and more! We are Maui's premier choice for destination weddings. We make it easy and stress free from thousands of miles away!

Jamie Lawrence was born in this beautiful paradise. Jamie has been a musician on Maui for over 40 years, and has graced thousands of weddings with his magical voice. His romantic love songs will add that “special touch” to your wedding day. Aside from Jamie’s incredible music, he is also a talented helicopter pilot. He has whisked many couples away to remote Maui rainforest waterfalls to have their private ceremony in the beauty of Maui’s lush valleys.

Lori (Scott) Lawrence was born and raised in Iowa. She worked as a school teacher for sixteen years for the Des Moines School District before moving to Maui in 2004. After following Jamie to several Maui weddings to hear him sing, and experiencing the excitement, she fell in love with wedding planning and decided to dive into a wonderful career (after all she is a Master Scuba Diver). Lori is truly a natural at making wedding dreams come true. She has assisted hundreds of couples plan their Maui wedding, and has a very long list of extremely satisfied customers. She puts her heart and soul into each and every wedding, whether it is a wedding for 2 or 200. Every detail is carefully planned and everyone can tell that she truly loves what she does. Her primary goal is to keep every one of her wedding couples worry and stress free throughout the planning process, and especially on their wedding day! And she does it all with an amazing flair.

Best wedding planners EVER

I would 1,000,000% recommend using Tropical Maui Weddings for so many reasons. Everyone that we worked with was fabulous, Sherron was absolutely amazing, and I can confidently say our day would not have been as special (or maybe wouldn't have happened!) without her. We had a whirlwind of a wedding story, and not one like your average because almost anything that could go wrong leading up to the big day - did. I'm sure Sherron can attest to the countless mishaps that happened to us along the way (nothing to do with Tropical Maui Weddings), but holy cow did Sherron step up and help us in so many ways. She made my husband and I feel like family, she put us at ease when something tragic happened to us the night before the wedding and she helped take the stress off of us the day of. She was up late with us the night before and was up early with us the morning of to make sure that everything went smoothly. Again, I could not sing higher praises for this team. Thank you so much Tropical Maui Weddings, we will forever be grateful for you.

Best day ever with TMW!

Having Sherron, Jamie, Lori and everyone at Tropical Maui Wedding help plan/ coordinate our wedding was the BEST decision we made for this entire wedding! They always went above and beyond every request and expectation we had.

We didn’t even get around to shop for different wedding planners because Sherron was just
that good! Being the first and only one we talked to and we knew already we didn’t need to look no further. We worked with Sherron for 2 1/2 years due to COVID but we never had a question or concern they couldn’t address. At each step of the way Sherron made sure it was in our best interest. She helped me narrow down my million mismatched ideas into a dream vision. Her response and problem solving skills were also lightening fast!

Hands down I would recommend any family and friends that are looking to get married in Maui to work with Tropical Maui Wedding. I can’t wait to plan my vow renewals with them!!!!

If you’re even thinking of getting married on Maui, save yourself some time and talk to Lori and the team at Tropical Maui Weddings right away!

Lori and her team are pros when it comes to helping you plan your special day and are experts when it comes to all things Maui. Not to mention, they are some of the most kind and genuine people you will ever meet.

We had our wedding on Maui in June of 2021 and are long overdue to write this glowing review for the TMW team.

When we decided to get married on Maui, the thought of planning a wedding from the mainland was a bit overwhelming and we didn’t know where to start. That is, until we met Lori! From securing our date, to selecting a venue, Tropical Maui Weddings made the process a breeze.

They put together a great proposal of vendors to choose from with reasonable prices for each. There are so many things you don’t think about when starting to plan a destination wedding and they had that covered too. They get preferred pricing with all of the top vendors so you are already saving money. Everything felt reasonable and they gave great advice on where we could save and where we could upgrade. Other wedding planners are all about the money and will give you a cookie cutter proposal, not TMW! They will put together a custom plan based on your idea for your special day. You quickly realize the cost of paying for TMW is 1000% worth it.

Lori and the team were super organized and helped keep us on track to make sure our wedding was planned well in advance. They were super communicative, and always responded back to us in a timely manner. When it comes to your wedding day you won’t have to worry about a thing if you hire TMW as your wedding planners! They make sure everything goes according to plan, that it all looks beautiful, and will go above and beyond to make your day special.

Our wedding was originally planned for June of 2020. Of course, that all changed with the onset of the pandemic. With all of the stress around having to move our wedding after sending invitations, and not knowing when things would go back to normal, the TMW team was there every step of the way. They worked with us to make sure that when our wedding was rescheduled, it would be the best day ever. Lori and team were comforting and made moving everything easy with so much patience along the way.

When our day finally came, it was truly perfect and couldn’t have been better! TMW exceeded our expectations and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. We were able to be in the moment and enjoy every second of it! – This is so important because it goes by quick.

Lori, her husband Jamie, their daughters Sherron and Chloe, and the rest of their team were there cheering us on and making sure everything was perfect. Jamie is also an amazing musician who we had perform at our wedding along with the talented Derick Sebastian and our awesome DJ.

We can’t say enough about how special they made us feel and how perfect our wedding day was. We still receive so many compliments on our wedding from friends and family and this is all thanks to Tropical Maui Weddings!

Hiring TMW was truly the best decision we could have made. Do yourself a favor and hire Tropical Maui Weddings to plan your wedding day in Maui! You will feel like celebrities with this team behind you! It’s no wonder why they win so many awards!

We will always cherish our best day ever thanks to Lori and her team. Thank you, Tropical Maui Weddings!
