Best Wedding Planners
on the Hawaiian
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—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.

"Mari is amazing! She was such a delight to work with. She had so many remarkable ideas, and we couldn't be happier with our photographs. She's creative, personable, and definitely a fantastic photographer. I did some research prior to booking her, and I'm so glad I chose her. Her professionalism and response time are amazing. If you're planning on having a destination wedding, I would highly recommend booking Mari; you will not be disappointed. She is wonderful!"

"Since the moment I contacted Mari, she was very friendly, responsive, and professional. I lived in Miami and was getting married in Hawaii, and I booked for her fast responses, amazing portfolio, and enthusiasm for her work. I know a bit about photography, and the lighting was not the best because it was extremely sunny. Nevertheless, she managed to create an incredible wedding gallery, which only an excellent photographer knows how to do. She is very gifted. I would hire her again and recommend her. I'm delighted with her work."
