Taryn was amazing to work with from the start. She was so kind and so willing to help right away, and not to mention so patient with me.
The day of the wedding, Taryn and Stephanie had made it so seamless for me that not once did I worry about anything.
Thank you so much for everything that you both did for us on our wedding, you ladies are so appreciated!Sent on 08/15/2019

Couldn't imagine our wedding without them!
Working with Taryn was our wedding destiny! We were referred to her through Loren at Marry You in Hawaii, which is where we found our amazing officiant Brutus La Benz. We spoke with Loren about where we were in our planning process and she highly recommended we look into getting a day of coordinator. We were very DIY and on a tight budget for our wedding so we initially thought we would just handle all of the day-of madness ourselves. We are sooooo glad we listened to Loren and got in touch with Taryn! After speaking to her one time over the phone we felt so much relief from our wedding anxieties. We went through our vendor list with her and she assured us we were in great hands. She helped guide us through the last 2 months of planning and held a rehearsal for us the day before. She was there the day of along with her associate Stephanie to take care of EVERY LITTLE DETAIL. They took care of us the entire day, made sure we were happy and even hydrated (it was super hot that day). They handled all of the set up for the ceremony and reception and did a beautiful job with our table decor. If you want your day to run smoothly and stress-free, Taryn and Stephanie are a must have!
We don't know what else to say besides the fact that they went above and beyond to make our day perfect! And by beyond... we mean BEYOND! When discussing rentals with Taryn I had mentioned wanting to rent some beautiful goblets but ultimately ended up not getting them for budget reasons. To our surprise, Taryn was able to acquire them for us! It may not sound like a big deal but it meant a lot to us and it was such a thoughtful gesture. And it didn't even end with our wedding day. The following day, Cary lost his wedding ring while snorkeling on the beach. We were able to find a new one just like it. Thanks to Taryn, she was able to put us in touch with our officiant again to have him do a little mini ceremony for the new ring.
So whether you're looking for a day of coordinator or someone to handle all of your planning, just book A Touch of You NOW!Sent on 08/20/2019

Full Planning Awesomeness!
This review is late, but Taryn and her team did such an awesome job that I felt I needed to write this. First off, we had the full planning package with Taryn. All our meetings with our various vendors was always full of laughs, and she made sure to keep us on point. My friends tell me how stressful the week leading up to the wedding is, but honestly it felt like I had nothing to do. And best of all, my wife was not stressed out. Taryn and her team did such an awesome job on the day of including doing a shopping run for us. My wife was feeling a little under the weather on the day of the wedding, but her team went out and got medicine for her. She made our day so special and we will cherish the memories of our awesome day.Sent on 09/04/2019

Literally Wedding Planner to the Rescue
We had a 2 year engagement and had previously hired Wendy Tenedora Wong with House of Aloha Hawaii to coordinate our wedding in Hawaii. Unfortunately after a year and a half of false hope and assurance, our wedding was far from being executed - a whole other story in itself. I was referred to Taryn with a touch of you after much vetting from one of my bridesmaid. Even with my initial conversation with Taryn, she was super sweet and understanding of our unfortunate circumstances. With only 1 month to plan my wedding, Taryn jumped in with no hesitation. She was very accommodating to our vulnerable situation and really brought back the excitement in planning our wedding. She answered every phone call/text/email and provided insight to things we didn't consider. Not only was her team knowledgeable and supportive the entire way- they really took care of us the day of. Making sure we ate, drinks were always full, makeup was touched up and fires were put out. Expect nothing but the best and nothing but love when working with A touch of you.Sent on 10/22/2019

Flexible at all the right times
Taryn and her team were excellent on the day of the wedding! They made sure everything went smoothly and were able to adjust when I had special requests!

A Touch of You is AMAZING! They turned my dream wedding into a reality! Taryn is a BOSS! She knows how to run things smoothly and will run it on a time schedule in order for everything planned to happen. Taryn is also bubbly, creative and down to earth and she helped make our day as perfect as we could have imagined. She put up with my crazy wedding party and kept us all in check. She listens to all of your wants/needs/concerns and makes it all possible! I would 100% recommend Taryn and her girls to help you plan your perfect day :)Sent on 09/06/2018

I had the pleasure of working with the talented Taryn and her team at my wedding. From start to finish she knew what I wanted and made sure to give me my dream wedding. She was so easy to work with. From my invitations, flowers, small details, and everything in between everything was perfect. I was not stress at all and that reflected at my wedding. All my guests were amazed to see how stress free and relaxed I was the day of the wedding and my family really complimented everything about the wedding. Taryn and her team made my wedding dreams a reality. I can’t thank her enough along with her amazing team for everything.Sent on 09/17/2018

Such A Fun Time!
I am so glad my husband and I hired Taryn and her amazing staff. From the very beginning she was such a big help. We contacted her two years before our actual wedding date and from the first meeting we knew we wanted her on our team. She has an amazing vision and understood exactly what we imagined our dream wedding would be and brought that vision to life. We trusted her with the selecting the vendors we needed, as we didn't have time to meet with a bunch of different ones, and everyone exceeded our expectations. Our wedding was going to be a big one so you could understand the stress that would come with it, but honestly I wasn't stressed at all because I knew and trusted Taryn had everything under control. After two years of planning the big day came and Taryn and her staff made sure everything was on schedule and all the vendors arrived on time to set up. Everything ran so smoothly my husband and I were actually able to enjoy ourselves without worrying about a thing. The thing that put our wedding over the top was how entertaining Taryn planned the reception program. There wasn't a dull moment where our guest felt "bored" or there was no awkward down time. It was a great time all around and all our guest keep telling us how awesome our wedding was till this day (2 months later). Thank you Taryn and the entire A Touch of You Staff you folks are AMAZING!Sent on 10/17/2018

TARYN (A Touch of You) IS TRULY THE BEST!!!! From the initial meet-up to even after the wedding, Taryn has been AMAZING! My wife and I live in California but had our wedding in Hawaii. Even though we lived out of state, Taryn made wedding planning fun and convenient.Sent on 06/03/2018
I proposed to my wife in December 2017 and we wanted to have our wedding in May 2018 (just five months away), so everything was on short notice. We contacted and met Taryn for the first time in January 2018, just 4 months before the wedding. From that point on, communication was done through calling/texting/emailing/skyping. She attended vendor meetings on our behalf and included us through skyping. It was reassuring to hear when other vendors would ask who our wedding coordinator was and when we said "Taryn," they would immediately say we made a great choice. Throughout the planning process, Taryn gave us a lot of tips, input, and insight on things we didn't even think we needed/wanted. And most importantly, she took care of us despite our crazy procrastination lol. What made Taryn stand out was her fun, laughing, and spontaneous attitude!
During our rehearsal, she made everything easy to follow and gave pointers (like how to hold the bouquet, where to stand, how fast to walk, etc). She even provided everyone with an easy to follow cheatsheet/timeline for the wedding day (which proved to be super helpful because everyone knew where to go and at what time).
On our wedding day, everything fell into place beautifully. Taryn and her team took care of all our little wedding accessories so we didn't have to worry about them. She made sure we had ample time to take pictures of everyone we wanted at the chapel. We will never forget our 'first-look' of the ballroom. IT WAS SPECTACULAR! We would have never thought our wedding would be so elegant yet grand, but Taryn made it happen! THANK YOU TARYN!!!
Shanee' · Married on 02/18/2018
Where do I even begin? First off I want to truly from the bottom of our hearts thank Taryn and her team for making our wedding dreams come true and come to life!
Well for starters I knew Taryn since I was about 13 years old! And when she started her business I always said I would be coming to her when it was my time to get married! And 12 years later I did just that! I reached out to Taryn a few months after my husband and I got engaged. She set up a meeting with us and we talked for a good 2 hours. She asked questions as to what we already had done, things we wanted done, our vision for our big day. She helped us choose a florist, a DJ/Emcee, and a cake company. Those were really the only vendors we hadn’t secured when she started to help us. But the 3 vendors that she did set us up with were absolutely amazing!!! Our florist was amazing and the flowers/lei she had for us were to die for!! I loved everything about it!! The DJ and Emcee seriously were hilarious and had everyone entertained for our entire wedding! And our cake was so simple and beautiful and even featured our little fur baby who couldn’t be at our wedding
The morning of our wedding I truly felt so at ease knowing that Taryn and her team were handling EVERYTHING! That day Taryn only called me once. And it wasn’t to ask me anything besides how I was doing and feeling. ♥️ she was in touch with my bridal party the whole day. In the hours before the wedding the weather got really bad and it was just a down pour. Taryn made sure to inform Hale Koa that our ceremony would now take place inside a ballroom and not in the garden. She made sure that our new ceremony space was set up to be just as beautiful as it would have been outside! And quite honestly after getting married inside i preferred it so much more than outside. So i guess when it rains on your wedding day it really is a blessing!
Taryn thank you for truly the best day of our lives!! We will never forget it!!!! ♥️Sent on 03/02/2018

Taryn is the best! I seriously don't know where to begin with this review. I heard so much about her through people and my husband and I decided to email her a year ago. Her responses were quick and she was willing to meet half way. From the first day I met her, she has been so sweet and funny! She is also so bubbly & friendly! She knew what she was doing and she was on point with everything. She has helped me with getting most of my vendors and was always there to talk to whenever I needed to ask her something. When the wedding day came, I was completely in "awe" and speechless. Everything was what I pictured in head and she turned my vision into real life. Her and her team has worked so hard and her communication with all the vendors was on point. Especially having to come back on vacation for two weeks, she worked everything out. (She deserved that vacation though, lol!) Thank you Taryn for everything. I seriously don't know what I would do without you! You and your team did a great job and thank you for helping me with everything. I tried my best to do things before asking her because I know she is super busy with other stuff but she would always tell me don't be afraid to ask or it's her job to help me with everything, lol! But she is truly the best. She knows what she is doing and she has helped me so much with getting all vendors. She has made me and my husband's special day a success! She really "touched" our wedding day and us! So if any of you need a planner, go to her because she will really make your wedding day a dream come true. <3Sent on 01/24/2017

We hired Taryn via recommendation from my cousins who work with her sometimes. BEST DECISION WE MADE FOR OUR WEDDING! We were very happy with ALL the vendors she recommended for services that we needed and have not decided on. And she worked very well with the vendors we picked out at the wedding expo ourselves. She made sure my wife had the wedding of her dreams come true without a hitch. Everything we wanted to add to the wedding, she knew how to get and who to call. We had so many extra things that needed to be set up, and picked up, and moved from place to place, but Taryn and her team made sure everything was done perfectly while we enjoyed our special day with ZERO distractions.Sent on 04/07/2018

There are no words to describe how thankful we are and to describe the amazing job that Taryn did leading up to our wedding and on our wedding day. Her team let me, my husband, and all of our guests enjoy our special day.Sent on 10/29/2016
I was going back home to Hawaii for my wedding, and I had to plan it as if it were a destination wedding. All of the planning had to be done from the mainland. I had contacted Taryn about 8 months prior to our big day, and after our first telephone conversation, I knew that she was "the one."
Taryn's motto is "I got you girl!" She helped us to finalize the outstanding vendors, to create our day of timeline and provided day of coordination. Despite the 3 hour time difference, it was easy to contact her whether it was via telephone, text or email. About 4-6 weeks before the wedding, Taryn became heavily involved to where she would communicate with our vendors on our behalf. She made sure that all of the little details were taken care of, and with the vendors, she created our day of timeline. With our florist, Taryn created a beautiful sweetheart table and even added a few personalized touches to our table.
We flew in 4 days before our wedding, and Taryn understood that our availability was tight. She worked around our schedule, and met with us to finalize the timeline. She ran our rehearsal, and made everyone in our wedding party (including the parents) feel at ease.
The day of the wedding was ran smoothly and everything went as expected. Taryn ran the show, and made sure everyone stayed on schedule. Also, with the groom and as a surprise, they incorporated the SJ Sharks (my favorite team, #bleedteal) into the garter toss!
Many don't want to spend the extra money on a wedding planner and day of coordinator. However, I highly advise doing so. They know and understand the intricacies in planning a wedding and help keep a bride sane! I highly recommend Taryn. She is sweet, easy to contact, organized, and helps you get the job done.
Michael A. · Married on 06/10/2016
Where do we begin?! Michael ann and I were trying to plan our wedding about a year out and so we thought, "this should be easy" or so we thought. As a guy, I didn't know where to even begin, so I was really dependent on my then fiancé on which direction we were heading. We did the classes for the wedding cafe which helped us to see specific vendors in Hawaii, but how do we choose which one? So many great options but we wanted a certain "feel" to our big day. It wasn't until our sister in law had mentioned "a touch of you" that we even considered using a wedding coordinator so we made the call. After meeting up with Taryn it's like she knew our vision just from showing her our Pinterest wedding board! I mean, her skills permeated outward into her eagerness to work with us to get the best of the best for our big day. She took care of us as if it was her own wedding and she HAD to get the details perfect, and let me tell you.... Taryn definitely gets the details absolutely perfect! There is no denying that she is great at her job, but talk about taking the hugest load off of us. Taryn literally carried all of our stress and worry and took care of it all. If there was any advice I would give to someone about to get married it would be this. Hire a wedding coordinator.. And not just any wedding coordinator... Hire Taryn Maglianes from A TOUCH OF YOU because it will be the BEST money you will spend for your big day!Sent on 08/13/2016

Words cannot describe how amazing Taryn was. We gave her a short amount of time, and a fixed budget, and the end result was beyond expectation. From the first consultation, she showed vision we could not see for ourselves which was truly magical. Her organization and connections in the wedding industry were sound, easily delivering everything we asked for, and more. The big day was relaxed and stress free, as her team was professional and prepared for every and any imaginable potential delay. Most of all, we were able to tie in special unique personal quirks that made our wedding truly a one of a kind special day . A Touch of You, nailed it!Sent on 04/21/2016

It was less than a 1 month before the wedding and I was at a complete loss. I found Taryn on Instagram and sent her an email asking if there was anyway to help me in such a short notice. She replied in less than 8 hours.. saying don't worry, lets chat later today. I told her my vision, budget, & sent her my pinterest board. After our conversation, I think I might have cried. She said I am going to make this happen, and the weight was lifted! Taryn was on top of everything, every question, every change, she handled with ease. She contacted all of the vendors for us, and sent us the choices/updates via email or text. Like most brides I pinned my little heart out.. dreaming of the perfect wedding, but I knew my budget was limited. Taryn made my pinterest come to life! I could not believe my eyes when we walked in, "is this really my wedding right now??" Taryn went above and beyond to make our day amazing, I am forever grateful for her hard work and dedication.Sent on 04/27/2016

Taryn and her team at a touch of you was a godsend! Originally, I was one of those brides that thought I could handle the planning all by myself. I was really hesitant to even look into having a planner, but as my fiancé and I realized more and more that planning a wedding in one year with over 200 guest while both working full time was not going to be easy, we decided a planner was much needed. We interviewed at least 10 planners and it was an easy choice to pick Taryn. She's such a sweetheart and so involved in the planning process. She attended all of our meetings with vendors, was always just a call or text away, and even was there just to chat when it started to feel stressful and reassured us that all will go well. Taryn also has great relationships with so many quality venders that she made the planning process such a breeze with all her referrals. Even if we didn't feel a connection with a vendor, she's find us more options until we felt they were the right fit. Our wedding came and nothing could've gone more better or been more beautiful! Taryn and her team held it down and left me and my now-husband worry free the entire day so we could really enjoy ourselves. Everything went smoothly and perfectly. Taryn thank you for your hard work and being such a beautiful person and AMAZING wedding planner! We couldn't have done it without her!Sent on 02/07/2016
Meilan · Married on 12/30/2015
When we became engaged 9 months before our wedding date, we wanted to do much of the planning to ensure the vision we wanted came true. Yet we also knew that we would need day-of logistical support. We interviewed at least five wedding coordinators, and once we found Sherrie from A Touch of You, we knew we had our match. She took the time to understand what we wanted for our wedding, and rather than giving advice or recommendations of what to cut (given our tight budget), she helped us fulfill the wedding of our dreams.Sent on 01/03/2016
Even though we selected the day-of coordination package, we received so much more. Sherrie designed our beautiful wedding invitations to match our color scheme and simple yet elegant theme. She could have assembled them for us but we chose to learn how to assemble them ourselves. She took care of everything and patiently taught us how to create amazingly gorgeous invitations. She also advised us on when to send out invitations, when to ask for RSVPs and when to schedule meetings with our vendors and venue to ensure everything would be in place for the big day.
Sherrie proactively communicated with us as the wedding date approached - she finalized the timeline, met at our preferred times and locations across the island, and meticulously understood every fine detail. She facilitated a complex rehearsal including locals and out-of-towners and 10 kids with their parents with patience. The clarity, efficiency, and professionalism that Sherrie communicated with is unbeatable.
On the day of the wedding, Taryn and Sherrie worked as a true team - from the morning wake up call to handling logistics of the bride and groom getting ready at two different hotels to coordinating with photographers, videographers, a DJ, uplighting, florists, lion dancers, etc, to ensuring we were always at ease with our 200 guest wedding and reception, they worked their magic. We would 100% recommend Sherrie, Taryn, and all on the A Touch Of You team.
Amanda · Married on 12/12/2015
Our wedding day and everything leading up to it honestly would not have been as amazing as it was had it not been for Taryn and her constant support and dedication. Being that we both had very little experience with weddings, as this was our first marriage and we had both only attended a handful of weddings between us, we were obviously extremely overwhelmed with all the details that had to come together to make the day a success. Taryn made the whole process seem so much smoother and laid back and we LOVE her for it. There were times when we would stress about something that we considered a big deal and we would be worried and running to Taryn and she would completely calm us down and basically show us that we were stressing for no reason at all. It really helped the process be so much easier and we were able to really enjoy it. Taryn was always so easy to talk to, she never made us feel as if our questions were stupid, even though I'm sure many of them were. In the end, she was our angel because she really put together an amazing day for us and we could not be more thankful. She took all of our ideas and our vision and brought it to life and made it even better than we had ever imagined. Everything that we wanted was fulfilled that night. She's amazing because if she can't personally meet your needs and wants, then she will find someone who will and she will make sure that they do it exactly how you want it. She didn't let us down one bit and we're so happy that we were able to share our special day with her because, believe me, it would not have been as special without her. Taryn was everything we wanted and expected from a wedding planner and more. She becomes your family and in our families, we do everything we can to make each others' dreams come true. Taryn definitely fulfilled that, and then some. Thank you Taryn and the A Touch Of You team! We love you!Sent on 02/08/2016

Taryn Magalianes, founder and owner, of “A Touch of You” was everything we could have wished for and more as a wedding planner. From sitting down with us on day one to meeting with us after the wedding to recap the day we were constantly impressed with Taryn. During our introductory meeting, Taryn took the time to explain all of her services in detail and filled out a pre wedding worksheet WITH us (versus sending us to a website like other vendors) to fully understand and document our needs and identify the “to-dos”. She was incredibly organized and had great relationships with vendors which led to good prices and hassle free coordination on the day of our wedding. This was huge for us, as we had an outdoor wedding at Iolani Palace, and there are a lot of moving pieces when it comes to outdoor weddings!Sent on 12/05/2015
Besides being wonderful to work with, Taryn also had a great knack for managing people and building relationships. Besides making sure everyone (vendors and wedding party) was in place at the correct times, Taryn was able to help manage the crowd, the families, and the flow of the evening, all while keeping a smile on. Without Taryn’s organizational skills and friendly personality we have no doubt that our wedding would have been much more stressful. We honestly couldn’t have done it without her :)

Where do I begin with the beautiful blessing of having Taryn and the A Touch of You team apart of our Big Day,Sent on 08/04/2015
When searching for a coordinator you need to look no further,
Taryn was a gift sent from heaven with assuring that your special day runs unbelievably smooth,
One of the most loveliest people we had the privilege meeting during our time in Hawaii and better yet Taryn and her team got to make our day even more special.
Taryn was Professional, friendly, down to earth and just a Dream,
Deciding on something so important to remind us of our Special day wasn't easy, A long distance search from New Zealand to Hawaii was difficult to do for my veryyyy (MY WAY Attitude) but conversations and emails with with Taryn assured me everything was going to be nothing but AMAZING.
Met with Taryn a few days prior to wedding to go over things, and I instantly felt at ease after going through our day with her.
Myself and Husband were so honored to have her arrange nothing but class, elegance and what was one of the most beautiful Cocktail/Reception set ups I have ever seen,
I am so blessed I came across her online, after searching at lease another 100 coordinators online that just didn't fit me or my husbands personality, You need to look no further as Taryn will make your dream come true.
Taryn and A Touch of You Team,
I wish you all but the best in your amazing company, your hearts shine through what is not only a job, but a passion for thriving for nothing but the best...
Myself and Husband are so honored that you were apart of such an important day.
Thank you, Thank you so much.

Taryn (owner and event coordinator) is a godsend. Seriously, hire her - I promise you won’t regret it. That woman has so much momentum, positive energy and business acumen, she managed to keep us both on pace and within budget for a beautiful, perfect, stress-free wedding!!!
Taryn never made me feel like a nuisance when I flip flopped on ideas or dragged my feet on other things. She just happily accommodated requests and picked up the slack. She went above and beyond for us and, even though we had a meager budget, she made us feel like we were her top priority. The work that she and her vendors did was so amazing that the end result made it look like our budget was much higher than it actually was!
I recommend hiring early as they get booked up for the year pretty quickly. Also, through the business connections that A Touch of You has developed over the years, you can actually save money if you go through them for the discounted rates.
If you value your sanity and want to stay within your budget, hire A Touch of You!!
