Hello soon-to-be Maui brides and grooms! I just wanted to post very quickly about the amazing vendors that I worked with who put together a perfect wedding for my husband and I. Our coordinator, Cherise Vonae Shulman of The Perfect Wedding, did a remarkable job of organizing and putting together the most beautiful wedding! She is extraordinarily organized and responds to questions and requests so quickly! She's also very reasonable and will work with your budget. We had both our ceremony and reception at the beautiful Olowalu Plantation House- AMAZING! Our food was catered by Food for the Soul. They were wonderful to work with and the filet mignon was delicious- just melted in your mouth. Our photographer, Victor Saidov, is a photographer from the mainland (Seattle) who we flew out and not only is an amazingly talented photographer (and his brother Max too!), but both Victor and Max are a blast- they make everything fun and they truly capture the moment in all of their shots. Our DJ, Jay Langworthy, was also very talented, he picked up on the vibe and played great beats, and he also does mash-ups- so awesome! Our wedding was a dream and there is nothing I would change. Our bridal party stayed at the Papakea Resort and the Mahana- both are beautiful and reasonably priced at group rates (during the off season). It was so much fun because we had our rehearsal dinner/welcome dinner (food supplied by Costco) at the cabana at Papakea (lost our deposit because we were a bit too wild ), and then followed up the wedding with a post-wedding brunch at the Aloha Mixed Plate - so yummy! It was a perfect wedding in paradise!
Just a fun tip- if you want to do a lei greeting for your guests go to Costco for your leis- $8.99 for a two pack! Pre-order through Maui floral.
