Best Hawaii Wedding

Best Wedding Planners in Hawaii

I would love to acknowledge the hardworking professionals behind the scenes of these beautiful events. Wedding planners are the unsung heroes of the celebrations. They regularly invest hundreds of hours of work on each occasion—and that's before the big day even arrives. From designing reception tablescapes to curating vendor teams to executing the logistics of getting wedding parties down the aisle, these creatives ensure that no detail is ever forgotten. What's more, they always do it with style. A wedding planner is the key to a stress-free wedding day. I have curated a list of my favorite planners available here on the Hawaiian Islands. I hope you enjoy it!

Couture Events

     Erica Goldsmith founded Couture Events in 2007. She curates luxury weddings and special events on one of the most beautiful islands in the world. Erica loves taking a client's vision and personality and turning it into a fantastic dream come true of a wedding day. To see that expression of "wow" on their face when they see everything for the first time is what she truly enjoys.


She produces genuinely beautiful and thoughtful events guided by the love and emotion of the couples she works with. Producing weddings and events in the Hawaiian Islands for over 15 years, she understands the challenges of planning a celebration from afar. Her communication with couples and vendors is clear, concise, and of utmost importance. Erica's design aesthetic is fresh, light-hearted, nature-driven, and fun. She appreciates bold colors inspired by her tropical home in Hawaii just as much as her love of a soft and romantic color story.


Couture Events has been featured in Brides, Style Me Pretty, Pacific Weddings Magazine, 100 Layer Cake, Green Wedding Shoes, Wedding Sparrow, Bridestory, Tulle Magazine, Wedding Chicks & Grey Likes Weddings.
