After attempting to plan my wedding from Pennsylvania and becoming overwhelmed with finding the perfect vendors and venues, I knew I was going to need help. Once I spoke with Tori I knew that it was a good idea to hire someone who was so knowledgeable with wedding planning. We purchased Tori's "Help Me Finish My Wedding" package and I am so thankful that we did! Tori was able to lead me in the right direction with lists of referred vendors to help with decision making and finding quality service. She was always available to answer my questions and provide guidance during my planning process, and she even found small details that I overlooked to help me complete my wedding. Tori's skills went beyond my expectations especially after seeing her in action during my wedding rehearsal! She kept everyone on track and on their toes so that things went smoothly and quickly. Leading up to the wedding, it drove me crazy knowing that I wouldn't be able to help set up the reception and all the wedding decorations; however, I was blown away when I walked into the reception and saw every thing put together! Words cannot describe how thankful I am to have had Tori and her team's help during the day of my wedding! If you are on the fence as to whether to hire a planner, I would recommend it a thousand times! It is totally worth having the extra help and to be able to know that all of your friends and family can have a great time and not be bothered with wedding details. And take my advice and hire Tori, she is the total package when it comes to wedding planning and is the most affordable on the island. Thank for from the bottom of our hearts for everything! Mahalo, Gray & Hilary
Tori and her team were absolutely amazing at transferring my dream Wedding from Pintrest, and making it a reality. I am what some would call a control freak and a bit of a perfectionist, but with Tori I trusted her expertise, and she came through big time! Not only was it everything I hoped for and more, but she also had a few surprises in store for us, that made our day just that more special. You will want to work with Tori if you have high expectations, and like things to be a certain way. Tori is precise, on the ball, and keeps people on their toes. She is just the person you want by your side to make sure things run smoothly, and even if they didn't you would never know because she solves problems quicker than you could notice them. Our Wedding was spectacular, and an unforgettable night, it was everything we wanted!
I was married New Years Eve at Turtle Bay Resort and it was absolutely stunning. Tori and her team of wedding experts are quite simply a dream. You want peace of mind during one of the most important and stressful events in your life - call Tori. She has answers and solutions to practically anything. From venues to decor, to the best vendors and everything in between, she has it down pat. If you haven't considered putting money toward a planner, I can only say that Tori is a smart and economical choice. I would highly recommend paying for her service and I guarantee you will receive a beautiful, less stressed, memorable wedding. I was fortunate enough to not only have her plan my wedding, but also planned what turned out to be the most beautiful rehearsal dinner I could have ever of asked for. I have never felt so loved and blessed in my life, and without Tori my dream wedding would not have become a reality. Her connections in the field are priceless. But it's not just her business savvy that makes her such a wise investment. Tori is just a nice person. Tori picks up her phone or answers late night emails with helpful advice and ideas in a flash. Unfortunately I was unable to meet Tori before the week of the wedding since this was a destination wedding and I couldn't get to Hawaii before. At first it made me nervous,but by a couple months I had a good relationship with Tori and had so much trust in her. Tori is a people person and knows how to deal with most any personality and obstacle. When I got to Hawaii, I knew things were takin care of and I knew I could relax and enjoy my time with friends and family. I can't tell you how many times my family and friends commented on how relaxed I was, and I thank Tori for that. Tori and her team were always kind and courteous leading up to the day with the millions of requests we had. On the day of the wedding, I was amazed and speechless. Tori listened to me and learned my style to a T. Trust me that took work and dedication on her part, I guarantee I sent her 5 million emails and called her 1 million times always throwing ideas her way. I still wonder how she was able to decipher through all those ideas and requests. What she did took real talent and patience and she did a spectacular job giving me exactly everything I dreamed of and more. When I walked down the aisle and into my reception my eyes lit up and my heart was full, it was a feeling I will never forget. I couldn't believe the work her and her team had done. She also took care of things I never would have thought of and was so attentive the day of the wedding. I guarantee she put in 15+ hours that day, a holiday, and I never saw her without a smile on her face. I can also guarantee it was the an unforgettable Wedding and the best New Years Eve party ever. Everyone one of my guests were amazed. People are still calling me about how incredible it was and that my wedding was the prettiest wedding they had ever seen. I can't tell you how many people came up to me complimenting my coordinator and I have Tori to thank for that. My wedding was picture perfect and was more than I could have ever asked for.
We are from California and had our wedding on Oahu at a resort and were not sure we would need a wedding planner since we were working with a hotel. We soon found out that we definitely needed some help. The hotel provided a list of wedding planners and Tori was on there. We interviewed them all and knew immediately we wanted Tori. At first it was because she only charged her flat fee and did not take commissions. However, we soon realized that her knowledge and expertise were invaluable to us. We initially hired her for her Day of Coordination package, thinking we could use the Internet to help us find the right wedding professionals for our wedding. That proved to be very overwhelming and stressful, and we learned that there are some dishonest people out there. So, we upgraded our package to her Total Package and are so glad we did!!! Not only was she available to answer all of our questions and provide the best vendors for our wedding day, but she also acted as our liaison with the hotel. She was at the hotel on the wedding day from beginning to end and made sure the set up was done the way we wanted it to be. I had a large bridal party and she handled all of our challenges and different personalities with her wonderful sense of humor. Everything was perfect on our wedding day and I am so grateful that I did not have to worry about a thing. I even got to eat!! Thank you, Tori, for making our wedding day the best ever! Our guests are STILL talking about how it was the best wedding they have ever attended.
Tori saved my wedding. I originally hired a different company because they were cheaper, but they turned out to be a disaster. My friend found Tori on line and thankfully she was available to help me plan my wedding. In Tori's initial responses, she had already been more helpful with my planning than the other company, and that was before I even signed a contract. She has so much knowledge and is completely up front about everything. Tori helped me plan my 100 person wedding from start to finish, and was especially helpful on the wedding day. Even the most organized wedding can have problems on the wedding day, and Tori calmly handled every situation with perfection. I loved how she got to know me and Leon personally so she could make amazing suggestions to personalize our wedding design. Her team and the other vendors really respect her and everyone worked together well. During the planning process, Tori provided a fully detailed summary so that we always knew what was going on for our wedding. She went above and beyond by providing little personal touches on the wedding day for us. Planning a wedding is stressful, but if Tori is your planner then you are in amazing hands. She is worth every penny and more! It was truly the best day ever!
Tori planned my cousin's wedding at Po'olenalena Beach and Five Palms Restaurant. She recommended the perfect vendors, provided the decor for the ceremony and the reception, and made sure everything was just the way the couple wanted it. She brought their vision to life and stayed in their budget. If you want the job done right, hire Tori.
Tori is an absolutely fabulous wedding coordinator! She herded our cats/goat rodeo of friends & family with ease & grace and coordinated everything seamlessly so I didn't have anything to worry about. Her knowledge of Maui, vendors, & the Kihei/Wailea area is invaluable for a bride planning a destination wedding! Every guest raved about how amazing everything was & it was all Tori from coordinating the ceremony, to reception space decor, to finding the perfect cupcake shop. Could not have had a more perfect wedding and I could not have done it without Tori!
Tori and her team did a great job organizing and coordinating our wedding at Spago, the Four Seasons, Wailea. We could not have done it without her. Tori always responsive to our many questions despite the time difference between Maui and the East Coast, where we reside. Also, she has strong relationships with vendors and was very helpful in guiding us as to entertainment, flowers, etc. Tori really allowed us to enjoy the day without having to worry about any details. We truly got to enjoy the moment.
Solid executionReviewed on 1/17/2016
Tori did a fantastic job preparing us for the wedding and orchestrating the wedding day. We only hired her for day-of coordination, but she put in a lot of work in advance going over our information, making sure we had everything we needed, and giving us advice on how to tie up all the loose ends. She was in the loop on all last-minute changes and had our back when some minor problems with the venue arose prior to the wedding. On the day of, she was always available and prepared to grab us a bite to eat/drink, hold on to valuable items, and deal with uncooperative family members and other distractions. Our relatively small wedding turned out just like we wanted in the end, and Tori was a big part of that. We'd highly recommend her.
Tori is the bestReviewed on 1/13/2016
I'm from New York and just had a wonderful wedding ceremony at Olowalu plantation house in Hawaii with the help of Tori. She is absolutely the most helpful planner! She always replies back email and message fast and answered all my questions patiently. She has the passion on her work and is very professional. She contact all the vendors for me and organized everything just perfect according to my request. Without her, I can not have my dream wedding at Hawaii. I definitely recommend her to who want to have a perfect destination wedding in Hawaii.
Christa/Eileen WeddingReviewed on 10/29/2015
Love Tori and how special she made our day. She picked the perfect arena as well as our officiant for the ceremony. He could not have been more perfect. The videographer and ukelele player were so sweet as well. Her pictures were fantastic and we thought she was great professionally and personally. Would highly recommend Tori Rogers. We haven't forgotten you Tori!! We have a little something for you, it's been nuts since the summer! xo, Christa and Eileen
Highly recommended! Fantastic!!Reviewed on 10/28/2015
Could not have pulled this destination wedding without the professional and creative help of this experienced wedding planner. She is so creative!! I would highly recommend this vendor to anyone planning a Hawaiian wedding!
Sandy and Rick Spinks WeddingReviewed on 10/22/2015
I just wanted to take this time to express how well Hawaii Weddings by Tori Rogers did on my friends wedding for Sandy and Rick Spinks. Tori and her crew did an outstanding job on creating such an experience for them. From the start of planning to the rehearsal, and finally the ceremony and reception, everything was smooth and flawless. Tori was on point! Making the bride and groom feel comfortable throughout the whole process. Tori I s a great person to talk to, and I could tell how passionate and full of energy she is on giving the best experience to the bride and groom that made it very memorable for their guests, but mostly for the bride and groom. I would recommend Tori to all the bride and grooms out there. Shes the best!
THE BEST HANDS DOWN!!!Reviewed on 8/16/2015
LOOK NO LONGER!!! TORI IS BY FAR THE BEST...SHE DELIVERED AS PROMISED. ...WORDS CAN NOT DESCRIBE HOW SHE CAPTURED AND CREATED THE MOMENT. ..SHE WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY...THANKS AGAIN TORI
Perfect Wedding CoordinatorReviewed on 8/15/2015
Tori is the most amazing wedding coordinator and a true professional. She was there for me and my husband every step of the way. I never once worried about anything. She is extremely organized and so nice and sweet. My wedding day was truly perfect and it turned out exactly how I envisioned it.
Tori made our lives as simple as possible both leading up to our special day and on the wedding day itself. She was unbelievably helpful in selecting our vendors, and many of them offered unsolicited rebates/discounts just for working with her! These essentially covered her fees completely!!! Tori was exactly what we needed... a type A go-getter who made sure everything went smoothly and that we didn't have to lift a finger or worry about anything. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a planner in Hawaii... especially if you are traveling from afar.
Great Communicator!Reviewed on 3/06/2015 Adri A
Tori was a great communicator through the entire planning process. She is very professional, courteous, and supportive. I'm grateful to Tori for her help and am very glad we worked with her. :)
Excellent Wedding PlannerReviewed on 3/02/2015 Becky N
I wasn't sure if I wanted to hire a planner, I thought I could pull it off myself. I soon realized that it was a good idea to hire someone and I am so thankful that I found Tori. Our wedding day went so smooth. All I had to do was show up. Literally. Throughout the planning process, I changed my mind several times on certain details and had many questions along the way and Tori was always there to help. She was great at returning phone calls and really helped guide me through all the decision making. I had no idea how much goes into planning a wedding until I sat down with her. I must have been crazy to think I could have done all that on my own!! Thank you, Tori!! You truly helped make our special day amazing!
Destination Wedding in HawaiiReviewed on 1/12/2015 Edmund W
Tori made sure our wedding off without a hitch. We started planning with Tori about a year in advance from our wedding date. Tori provided us with a multitude of choices. It was stressful to plan from another state and not be able to see anything, but the day of the wedding met and exceeded all our expectations. The vendors that Tori enlisted were truly excellent (venue, catering, wedding cake, entertainment, etc.). And the day of the wedding, Tori really made sure that all we had to do on the day of was to show up and not worry about anything else. We highly recommend Tori if you are planning a destination wedding in Hawaii.
MerveilleuxReviewed on 1/11/2015
Après avoir suivi les conseils d'une autre française, nous avons choisi Tori Rogers pour organiser notre mariage à Kauai. Tori a été très professionnelle. Malgré la distance tout s'est bien passé. Tori à tout ce qu'il faut dans sa petite valise pour vous faire passer un moment agréable. Le restaurant conseillé par Tori fut un très bon choix. Elle a su être patiente quand nous n'arrivions pas à trouver le bon accès à la plage. Avis aux français qui souhaitent tenter l'aventure. Faites confiance à Tori Rogers. Nous la recommandons vivement. Jennifer et Guillaume
Great ceremony wedding plannerReviewed on 10/31/2014 Nicole G
Tori was fantastic to work with. I contacted Tori after cancelling our contract with another Maui coordinator who was much more expensive and not genuine or helpful. We used Tori to plan our wedding ceremony (no need for reception since we did that at a restaurant and they had an in house coordinator. She was very easy to work with and helpful in answering all our questions. We sent her photos of things we liked and she took care of it all. Everything turned out exactly as we envisioned. It can be unnerving planning a destination wedding, but Tori made it very easy, and she's very reasonably priced. I would definitely use her again and recommend her to other brides.
It Was Like A Dream!Reviewed on 10/30/2014
Tori Rogers and her staff were the most considerate and professional people. Tori was with us every step of the way from visiting vendors to helping us stay true to our budget. On the day of the wedding she kept to our time schedule and made sure everything was set up and provided the whole wedding party with a carefree day. I would recommend her to any bride to be! The Mother of the Bride
Our wedding dayReviewed on 10/16/2014
My husband and I come from Slovenia, Ljubljana, a small country in central Europe. We wanted to get married on a beach. As we were deciding where, my husband suggested Hawaii, I choose Maui. My friend, which is a travel agent looked for a wedding organizer, she choose a few and than together we decided for Tori. She gave a quick reply, was very precise and also gave the best offer for what we wanted to have. I knew exactly what I wanted to have on my wedding day and Tori fulfilled our wishes. Her assistant on site - Hana helped us and took care that everything was on place. Tori helped us to pick a nice beach location and really did her best. The bouquet was wonderful, the location was perfect, the minister and the photographer were also great. We really enjoyed our day. We had a no-stress day, everything was taken care of as we planned, it was a very touching and romantic wedding ceremony. We had a rainbow weather: from splashes, sun, wind, calm atmosphere - it was perfect! We could not have ordered better. In the background there was our song, we also had the sand ceremony. Afterwards we went to Feast at Lele, which Tori advised us to go. It was wonderful. Romantic and delicious. The wines, coctails, slow food, the show, the dancers - everything was so well organized. We are really glad, we had such a good organizer and that everything went smooth. Tori and Hana really do a good job, they are committed to their work and really know how to please clients. We would definitely choose Tori again and we definitely recommend her to organize your dream wedding day! Aloha and Mahalo, Nina

Hawaii Dream Wedding Comes to LifeReviewed on 6/23/2014 Lauren W
Every girl has to think of what they want for their wedding before they find 'the one'. I was just that girl. I knew a couple of 'musts' for my wedding. I knew I wanted to get married on Kauai. I knew I wanted to get married at the Waimea Plantation Cottages, and I knew it had to be an outdoor tented wedding. What I didn't realize was the best parts of the wedding planning process was yet to come. I knew that I needed help. Whatever my mom and I were planning, we wanted to FULLY enjoy every ounce of it and we could only do it with a wedding planning. Tori Rogers did not let us down. It was a truly a blessing to find Tori on the Knot directory. I interview 3 wedding planners and she hit it out of the park. Very professional, very straightforward, and honest. Every bride needs someone that was going to tell them the truth whether or not. She was able to find us vendors and work with them to just make our day truly magical. With Tori's direction and keeping us on task, I was able to have my dream wedding. She is worth every penny and goes over and beyond for her bride and groom. My 'now' husband and I couldn't have asked for anything better. She works with your budget and your tastes to find something that will be perfect for that person. She is a great person and I am so happy that I found a friend in her as well.
