Maui Weddings from the Heart was the right choice for my wedding vow renewal. I surprised my husband with a sunset renewal on Maui for our 20th anniversary.Sent on 10/03/2013
Shasta Rose and her team of professionals exceeded by expectations in every way!
Dee Jay did a terrific job on my hair and makeup.
The sunset location at Makena Surf was secluded and incredibly beautiful.
Reverend Joe was warm and sincere, he made us feel comfortable right away. Our ceremony was meaningful and special.
Our photographer Sean was incredible and a joy to be with…so professional, yet relaxed and fun. We just received our photo proofs and they are outstanding!
I highly recommend Shasta Rose and her wonderful team.

Our situation was a little different - we've been together for 8 years and both of us married before but decided at the last minute (literally) to 'tie the knot' while in Maui on a pre-planned vacation. I gave Shasta less than 3 days to find an officiator, a great location and to set up the license appointment. She did a fantastic job. I loved the Reverand Joe, we ended up on a deserted beach (well, almost) just as the sun went down and the license went through without a hitch. WELL WORTH THE MONEY. Thanks Shasta!Sent on 09/06/2013

We are so glad that we used Maui Weddings from the Heart and worked with Shasta Rose. We couldn't have been happier with our wedding location and how smoothly everything went. We loved Joe Miles and thought that he made us and our guests feel totally at ease and welcome. Charles, Sean and Bette were also terrific. We just had to show up and everything unfolded.Sent on 05/17/2013
Shasta gave my office a recommendation of Merriman's for a gift certificate. Merriman's was a delicious and scenic choice. When we arrived, we observed two weddings taking place at Ka'anapali Bay and one taking place at Merriman's! When I took a restroom break, there was a third wedding taking place at Ka'anapali Bay. It only made Bill and me thank our lucky stars that we were able to have our wedding at Makena Cove, thanks to Shasta's recommendation.

My husband and I were looking to elope in maui and came across weddings from the heart and read all their good reviews and took a chance. It was a awesome and very pleasant, rewarding experience. I really did not want to spend my time planning and Shasta did alllll of that and more for us. The website is very easy to navigate and you can purchase everything in easy to understand packages and you can also add to it. Shasta's team all did a great job. She set me up with a very talented hair stylist named Jackie, the best photographer Frank, and Reverend Joe was very heart felt and perfect for our ceremony. Thank you Maui Weddings from the heart!Sent on 05/15/2013

I was a bit skeptical about hiring a wedding coordinator that I never met to plan my Maui wedding.Shasta worked extremely hard to meet all of my fantasies in making William and my day outstanding.Sent on 01/13/2013
The limousine service was elegant and stocked with all kinds of goodies. The driver was professional and polite the entire trip to Po’olenalena beach and to dinner under the stars. Reverend Joe was just as I pictured him and he had the type of personality as if he never met a stranger in his entire life. Thanks for everything Reverend Joe, especially the artwork that he designed himself. William and I had cake and sparkling cider on the beach. The cake and the bouquet were beautiful. We felt like a king and queen that entire afternoon. We indulged in the dove and butterfly release and it was so neat how the butterflies clung on for most of the event. It was almost as if they were trained to do so. It created some fantastic pictures and stories William and I will tell forever.
The photographer (Frank) took so many pictures and remained focused on making this day awesome during a part of dinner. Thanks Shasta for that addition. The videographer (Brian) was patient and understanding that I had left the CD of the music at home and that I would mail it back to him. I can’t wait to see what magic that he pulls out of his hat. The hair stylist (DeeJay) was incredible. She styled my hair, fixed my headpiece into place, assisted me with dressing for my big day, and took many pictures of the bride and groom before the wedding. She was like the sister that I never had. Thanks for everything and everybody that working together to make our day one in a million!

My wife and I are very happy to have Shasta as our wedding planner. everything was planned very well and went well perfectly. Joe, Jessica, Ginny, July, Kevin, Andrea, Beth, Amanda, who are our minister, photographer, musicians, videographer, and coordinators during our wedding, all of them are genuine, patient, professional, and dedicated to our wedding. Of course all these would not work without great planning.Sent on 01/23/2013

After extensive research we chose Maui Weddings From The Heart and we are very glad we did! Shasta organised everything perfectly and was very quick to respond to any queries we had. The service in Makena Surf Beach was wonderful and Rev Joe was superb. Sean the photographer was also great and the Sedan travel was organised very easily and there were no issues with timings at all. We are based over the other side of the world in the UK so it was strange having to arrange all these things so far away in a place we were not familiar with but Shasta did it all perfectly, and it must be added at a very competitive price too.Sent on 10/16/2012

Hiring Shasta and her team was the best thing we could have done! She planned my whole wedding right down to the details - I was the most carefree bride ever. When I was first looking at a destination wedding and the many companies, Shasta's website stood out the most to me. It was more professional looking than the rest and I am a tough critic because web sites are my day-to-day job! I picked the right person for the job! Shasta arranges everything for you - all you do it pick colors and locations. It is that easy to work with her. Her staff are all very professional and easy to work with. The wedding was beyond our expections and I can't recommend Maui Weddings From the Heart enough! Can't wait to do our 10 year vow renewal with them!Sent on 09/27/2012

Hi Shasta,Sent on 08/21/2012
The vow renewal ceremony was everything I thought it would be and so much more. Bette was fabulous in making sure everything ran smoothly. Frank, the photographer, was more than gracious with the number of pictures he took to capture every moment and emotion between my husband and myself, along with the emotions of my daughters and their husbands. I just had an opportunity to look at the pictures Frank took. I was brought right back to the ceremony, emotions and all. Reverend Joe, well what can I say about Reverend Joe. He set the tone and the mood for our ceremony. He was so humble and gracious, spoke from the heart to me, Bruce, my daughters and their husbands. He spoke to us like he was like an old friend who knew just what it means to be married for 35 years to your soulmate. Reverend Joe's message touched our hearts. The additional mementos he created and gave us as a remembrance of our special day was extraordinary and unique. The Makena Cove site was outstanding, exactly how I pictured it to be. Shasta, everything was perfect... from the sand between our toes to the sun up above and everything in between. Thank you for coordinating this event for us. Bruce and I will be forever grateful...

Everything was just perfect. It was such a relaxing day. I had nothing to worry about, as it was all taken care of for me. Shasta arranged for Jackie Cavallo to do my hair. She did a great job, and it was exactly what I was hoping for. My flowers were perfect, as was the wedding site. Rev. Joe Miles did the ceremony and was fantastic. We will never forget him. Our photographer was Frank Baranik. He was amazing and took beautiful shots--truly stunning beach photos. Overall, I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. Thank you Shasta for arranging a beautiful, stress-free wedding in paradise.Sent on 09/03/2012

Everything was above and beyond what we expected for the wedding. It's a bit nerve wrecking to put your trust in somebody that you connect with through a website that you've never heard anything about, but Shasta was amazing the entire time leading up to it and the vendors were supportive and made the process painless.Sent on 08/20/2012
Andrea, the day-of ceremony coordinator, was there early, even though we were there early, and was so relaxing. She did a great job directing everything smoothly.
Frank did a great job with the photos and we actually received the CD of photos by the time we returned from Maui. They are beautiful! He did a excellent keeping us smiling, even though it's hard after 700 pictures!
The highlight is unequivocally Minister Joe Miles. He fit in with our group seamlessly and put everybody at ease and in a relaxed, pleasurable mood. He was so passionate and so in touch with what he was saying that it really made the ceremony special. He also gave us a little packet of the ceremony script on monogrammed paper, a beautiful Wordology photo representing the ceremony, and a decorative marriage certificate. I can't put into words how much he helped in making the day special and unique.
We really loved every moment of the wedding planning and ceremony, especially since Shasta worked so hard to make everything come together. We even used Elly's to do a same day steam press of my dress and it came out beautifully.
A million thank yous!

Maui Weddings From The Heart organised our wedding vow renewal, it was fantastic.Sent on 06/07/2012
Shasta is wonderful, professional and offers a brilliant service from start to finish.
She is very easy to contact and replies with immediate responses even with the time difference between Maui and the UK. We organised everything via email and just turned up on the day with everything ready for us.
If you are thinking of renewing your wedding vows this is definitely the service to use and a fantastic location. Shasta also organised for my hair and make-up to be carried out in our room and Deejay supplied flowers for my hair.
Our service was carried out by Rev Joe, and it felt very personal to us. The photography was extremely professional and Frank made us feel very at ease.
10 out of 10 - highly recommend Maui Weddings From The Heart.

Shasta was fantastic! She took care of every detail. We were scheduled to have a beach wedding but it was raining that day. Without skipping a beat Shasta had a back up plan and we were married inside at a beautiful courtyard at a nearby hotel she does business with. After that we were able to take fantastic photos at the beach. Shasta makes wedding planning easy and stress free!!Sent on 01/30/2012

Maui Weddings from the Heart was a true blessing. Not only did they coordinate all the day of events, including the marriage certificate appointment, they also connected us to other activity planners on the island for the other days of our stay. Our photos were AMAZING... Shasta was so easy to work with, the day was beautiful, the location was quaint/quiet and the reverend's service was extremely memorable. I have never felt to beautiful.Sent on 02/08/2012

This past July my husband and I got married in Maui. It was the best experience we could have ever hoped for, and a large part of the experience included Shasta. At first I was hesitant to go online and choose a wedding planner. I originally had picked another wedding planner, but as the date got closer, this wedding planner stopped taking my calls and waited days to call back. About two weeks before our wedding we had to make decision. Did we want to go with a different planner? The answer was Yes. We read “Maui From The Heart” testimonials and something just felt right. When we arrived on the island, Shasta gave us several calls and was always readily available to talk about any items. On the day of our ceremony we felt stress free because Shasta had done everything. Our minister Joe was phenomenal, fun and charismatic (we are adding a photo of him in our wedding book). The last think I want to share is the quality of the photography done by Shasta. There are lots of places on Maui that offer photography packages, but from what I had sampled was not the best quality for the price. Shasta is a very talented photographer, and she really places a lot of interest and focus on producing the best pictures possible for you. My husband and I could not be happier with the pictures and photos we received from Shasta. I highly recommend if you are wanting to say “I do” on Maui, let Shasta and her team help you!Sent on 08/26/2011
