Taryn, Amber ,and the crew did an amazing job with our recent wedding in Maui. We could not be happier with how our day turned out and describe it as absolutely magical! Platinum Weddings made the planning process easy and we felt in great hands every step of the way. We... Read More were very nervous at first having never been to Maui and not being able to see or taste anything in person, but Taryn and her team guided us and never pushed but also gave good advice when needed. Taryn was even able to manage an unexpected change in venue two months before the wedding with professionalism, calmness, and amazing problem solving skills. We never once felt stressed and the day turned out even better than we could have imagined! We highly recommend the services of Platinum Weddings and feel so grateful that they assisted with our big day!

I'm based in California and plan corporate events as my occupation, but knew I needed someone local to Maui who had the knowledge, the vendor relationships, could help me figure out my vision for our wedding, and execute on it. I also knew I needed someone who could gently push... Read More me along when planning the wedding began to feel like an extension of my job. :) Tami excelled at all of these criteria...and more! We had a long engagement (1.5 years), and I feel like I went from never knowing what I wanted, and stalling on making decisions, to having a VERY precise idea of I wanted, along with high expectations in the last month or so.... (sorry Tami!) But Tami took it all in in stride with a positive and upbeat attitude. Tami provided a great list of vendors, but was open to working with a few I found on my own. She was very responsive and did a great job executing all of my requests. Our wedding day was perfect and I'm so thankful for everything that Tami and Amber did to make it that way!

Gabriella, Taryn, Amber and Tammy of Platinum Weddings & Events are FANTASTIC! I live on Maui and had the pleasure of meeting with Gabby and Taryn several times in person during the planning process. By the day of our wedding, it was like working with my friends. Gabby is so... Read More great and knowledgable and truly understood my personality, my vision and ideas, and executed perfectly!! Even though I visited my venue several times and talked everything through with Gabby, I was totally blown away when I saw it all come together in person. She made my wedding dreams come true. From recommending vendors to working with them, arranging and placing decor, and assisting in surprising my Husband during the reception, Gabby is seriously wonderful. Amber was the coordinator who closed up our event and she was so kind, helpful and organized. She even assisted us in retrieving our car keys that we accidentally left in our hotel room! I recommend Platinum Weddings a hundred times over for all destination weddings AND local brides. Mahalo a nui loa Platinum Weddings team for being amazing and making our special day so seamless, fun and beautiful. Do yourself a favor (treat yourself!) and use their services. It will be the smartest investment for your wedding to have coordinators that are the BEST.

My (now) husband and I cannot speak higher of the quality and service we received with Gabriella and Taryn. It was so exceptional that we had to write a review while still on our honeymoon. We planned our destination wedding 100% sight-unseen. No cake tastings, no sight visits,... Read More no officiant interviews. Just through phone calls alone Gabriella completely "got us" and our energy. Everything was exactly how we envisioned from the fluffiness of the cake to the personality of the DJ. The day of our wedding was actually the first time we met Gabriella in person and we both felt like we already knew her. Everything was on point, on time and planned perfectly. It ran like a well-oiled machine and my husband and I didn't have to do or worry about anything. If my mom had a concern Gabriella had already resolved it. If Sol had a question she just told him to not worry and enjoy his day. We honestly cannot thank her enough for all she did. She is truly gifted at what she does. Her demeanor is perfect and her connections were essential to planning our perfect day. Sol and I are so, SO happy we went with Platinum Weddings & Events.

As a bride who's pretty clueless about wedding planning, and not a ton of aesthetic sense, Taryn did an amazing job making recommendations along the way that were both practical, and exactly what we wanted in terms of look and feel. Taryn totally respected our need to stay within a budget, and offered some amazing advice on how to best do that. She's extremely organized and on top of her game.

Regrettably, my first choice florist flaked out last minute and Taryn was able to secure another one last minute! While some people do not think they need a wedding planner, peace of mind and support is necessary and priceless. Even the most organized human beings, like me, needs help in battling the beast that is a destination wedding! So many things can go wrong, and it usually does. Mine was a small wedding (25 people) and I could not have pulled it off without Taryn. I highly recommend her.
