  • Three weeks before our scheduled vacation, we added "wedding" to our list of things to do in Maui. The only way we could possibly arrange everything in such a short time was to work with a wedding planner. Hana was on our itinerary so, we decided on one of the beautiful beaches there for the ceremony. It was just the two of us, but still there are a lot of logistics in planning a wedding in a place you've never been. Hana Wedding Company website clearly outlined the services they offer no matter what size the wedding. They seemed to offer a lot of flexibility so, we contacted them. After speaking to Andrea by phone, we were comfortable that we'd have little to worry about. During the three weeks leading up to our trip, she sent information on flower choices, clergy, beaches, and also arranged a time and place for us to pick up our license. We had already decided to use Kaua (also of HWC) as our photographer). We arrived in Hana and first met Andrea in person 18 hours before our wedding (yes hours). She bravely climbed in to our rented convertible and guided us to each of the 3 or 4 beaches we were considering. She planned to drop off a tray of appetizers the next day, so she also rode with us to find our weekend rental. Andrea patiently pointed out the special things about each beach and said nothing negative about any which ensured that the decision was totally ours. In trying to locate our rental, we ended up off track and took Andrea on a bit of a four wheel expedition. Still calm and relaxed, Andrea did not waver from her mission to make our wedding day memorable. The next morning, we met Andrea, Ashley, and Kaua and drove to the Black Sand Beach. Once we at the site of the ceremony, Andrea surprised us by presenting two bridesmaids...one of my two daughters had contacted Andrea and arranged to fedex cardboard cutouts of themselves (10") so they could "be at the wedding". Behind the scenes Andrea worked with my daughters so they could add their surprise touch to the day even though they were not there in person. The morning went just as we wanted it to, simple and uncomplicated. Andrea is very professional, organized and unflappable. We really enjoyed working with her
  • Since there were no gusts, no reception. Instead, we wanted a nice lunch at a local place. Andrea suggested a local favorite for dining. She asked about other needs I might have; someone to help with hair makeup etc. We had considered a violinist to play our favorite song (which is not well known). Since apparently there are none in Hana, Andrea reached out to other parts of the island and did find someone who knew the song.
  • We've been together for 16 years and don't tend to sweat the small stuff. However, we did get a bit anxious when only a week before our trip we had not yet spoke to Ashley about our vows. We had made a lot of edits to the samples so, they were totally different than what she sent. Andrea reached out to Ashley and within a day, Ashley contacted us so we could run through everything with her. Andrea seems to be able to sense when you feel anxious. She knew things were on track, but also knew our vantage point was not the same as hers.
  • Huge. Andrea is resourceful. She has access to the best artist in the area, each of who bring something special to the event. And they are artist.

  • How did wedding planner make your day special? Andrea was wonderful to work with throughout the entire planning process. What really helped to make our wedding day special, was her willingness to meet us a day prior to our wedding to seek out the perfect ceremony location. She had several spots in mind and patiently walked us to each one until we found the perfect location for us.
  • Useful suggestions, tips, wisdom your planner offered? We were actually thinking about staying in another part of Maui and driving to Hana on the day of our ceremony. Andrea explained how long it can take to drive the road to Hana and suggested we stay somewhere in Hana. She even provided us with links to suggested rentals and we found the perfect home to stay in only a mile from our ceremony location. Definitely a good decision!
  • How the planner reduced your inner-Bridezilla? I actually didn't have any Bridezilla experiences - I guess that's the whole point of an elopement. The entire day was very serene and exciting. Andrea stopped by our rental home early to deliver my bouquet and hair flowers. She even inserted the flowers perfectly into my hair!
  • Value of a wedding planner? Michael and I simply would not have had a wedding if it wasn't for having a wedding planner. We attempted to plan a wedding so many times and the process was so overwhelming, stressful, and expensive, that we were never able to make it happen. So, we made the decision to hire Hana Wedding Co. to plan the perfect elopement for us. Everyone at Hana Wedding Co. is amazing - you immediately feel like you've known them forever. Our photographer, Kaua, was is so incredibly talented and was able to capture so many great moments on film for us. Ashley, our officiant, was perfect - she did a wonderful job with our ceremony! Jessica did an amazing job on the flowers. And, we couldn't have been happier with Andrea, our planner, who was with us every step of the way. If you are thinking about getting married in Hawaii, you must do it in Hana with Hana Wedding Co.! Hana is definitely one of the most magical places on earth and it will certainly be an experience you will never forget.
