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.
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.
Awesome experience!Reviewed on 6/21/2014 Lauren H
Tori was phenomenal! We planned our wedding in a very short time and from Florida. She was so accommodating and had the perfect suggestions to make our day so special. Any questions I had, she was immediately in touch with me about! My photographer ended up being late, so she was coordinating, filming, and taking photos. We even received an email afterwards with several of the pictures she had taken just a little time after the ceremony. I can't say enough good things! And john, our officiant was nothing short of absolutely wonderful! I would highly recommend tori over and over again!!!
Great CoordinatorReviewed on 3/12/2014 Jessica B
Tori is very professional, and she has so many recommendations for you. Our wedding turned out just as we planned, and it was so nice to have her there to take care of so many little things we couldn't do ourselves.
A Memorable DayReviewed on 10/05/2013 Kimberleigh K
Tori was great! We had a beautiful wedding day at Kukahiko Estate. Amazing food, superb entertainment, and a beautiful location. Tori added plenty of extra special touches to make our day so memorable.
Great Service!Reviewed on 10/05/2013 Yuhan Z
Me and my fiance (now husband!) got engaged in 2012 and we both want a wedding in Hawaii. The first thing I did was trying to find a good wedding planner on the island because I can't be there myself to check out all the vendors. I have to say I am really lucky to find Tori. She is quite knowledgeable about weddings in Hawaii and guide me through every step. There was nothing I need to worry about because she pretty much did everything for me! The wedding we have was a small one, only family members and close friends came. It was so fun and all of us enjoyed it! It was exactly what we want, beach, sunset, games, etc. If you ever want a wonderful and romantic wedding in Hawaii, Tori is the one you need to talk to！She will make your dream come true!
So fantastic !!!Reviewed on 10/02/2013

She's really helpful and kind! She answers really quickly to our question by e-mail (because we live in France). You can choose Tori Rogers with closed eyes she's perfect for all !!!! Our wedding was better than in our dreams thanks to Tori Rogers!! Just say Mahalo ;-)!!!
100% worthwhile!Reviewed on 8/24/2013 Liana E
My fiance and I decided to get married on Maui at the top of Haleakala at sunrise. Totally crazy, but that is us. We brought our parents and siblings with us. I knew I wanted to use a wedding planner to make the whole experience easier, so the hotel wedding service referred us to Tori. [They themselves could not take care of the planning for us because the wedding was not being held on their property.] I e-mailed Tori about what we wanted. We wanted a simple ceremony on the top of Haleakala followed by breakfast. Not knowing what to ultimately expect, she gave me peace of mind as she turned a crazy idea into the wedding of our dreams! She recommended Jessica Pearl for photography (who was also incredible!), helped us to get the marriage license and also was able to sign off on the marriage license as our officiant. She took care of getting the permits for Haleakala. She made suggestions on places to eat and made breakfast reservations. All of this through just a few e-mails. She clearly is on top of her game and loves what she does. She asked questions about things I had never thought of. For example, on the ride up to the crater would you like snack bags for your guests? Water? Would you like to cut cake or toast at the crater after the ceremony? None of these things had crossed my mind, and yes, I would love snacks for the guests! We ran into a snag when trying to coordinate transportation - the prices were outrageous to hire a car company to take us all to the top - but Tori came to the rescue! She rented a large van that fit all of us and our photographer and drove it to the top stocked with snacks and provisions. It made life so much easier, especially at that time of the morning (or do you still consider it night?). Day-of, she and her assistant managed to keep everyone calm and happy (despite the freezing temperatures) and made our day easy and perfect. Every single one of our guests commented to me how great she was. For the amount of expertise and service she provided her fee is ridiculously inexpensive. She was well within the budget we set-up at the start. Her cost included the planning, transportation, officiant fees and snacks. I highly recommend her and wish that I could give her more than 5 stars!
