  • The wedding planner I used through White Orchid Wedding on Maui may have just started working as a wedding planner since she couldn’t keep details straight, wouldn’t answer emails for weeks nor reply to phone calls. I would try to leave a voicemail on her phone but it was always full so I couldn’t. I would call main office & leave messages but wouldn’t hear back. Prices were very expensive & added 20% to every charge for her service then charged additional cost for her services again. I would not recommend using this planner if you are having a wedding in Maui.

  • We were so blessed & lucky that Kendall of White Orchid Weddings took the reigns for our gorgeous wedding in Upcountry, Maui! We are SO HAPPY with how everything went! Kendall is a beautiful souled person who truly became more than a coordinator. We consider her a good friend. Her professionalism, calm, reassuring demeanor... set the tone for our whole wedding. The months leading up were much less stressful due to her encouragement, organization skill set & great, prompt communication. The days leading up to our August 2018 wedding were worrisome due to impending hurricanes... but Kendall kept calm, communicated with us & all vendors.. and made amazing last minute changes to assure we would still have the outdoor wedding of our dreams! Complete with sun & double rainbows! Now THAT'S talent ;) We have said time & time again how we couldn't imagine our wedding day without Kendall! As the bride, I was able to relax & enjoy the moment of being a bride... knowing Kendall & her team were... Read more

  • Nani was amazing to work with and managed to pull together a dream wedding for us! She had a great understanding of the vibe we wanted even when I struggled to articulate some of my ideas. I wish we could do it all over again tomorrow! Thanks again!!! Amy & Cody

  • We were blown away by Bernie and Steven’s excellent service. Right from the beginning, they were responsive and helpful, unlike many other wedding vendors I reached out to. We did everything by distance via phone and email, and they made it so easy! Throughout the process they kept us engaged and took care of everything. They were detail-oriented and did not miss anything from our wedding requests/designs. They did all the coordination with the venues and it was super helpful. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who wants a stress-free approach to a Hawaii wedding!

    Hooray! We are so happy for the two of you and grateful you selected WOW to facilitate your extra special day! xoxo

  • Kendall was an amazing planner! She was so easy to work with and very organized! We were on the same page throughout the entire process in terms of negotiating with vendors and creating a beautiful wedding! I really don't know what I would have done without Kendall and her team.

  • My dream came true thanks to my wonderful planners at WOW... My then Fiancee and I didn't think of a wedding until very late, like, less than 3 months before our actual wedding day. But with the help of Bernie and Steven from WOW, things came together so nicely that we sometimes didn't realize we were in the middle of it. We ended up having a small group flying in and some don't even speak English, but my planners and the crew at the White Orchid Beach House did everything they could to accommodate our guests. It is an unforgettable moment of our lives--thank you, WOW, for making it happen! Dian & Ted

  • My partner and I dreamed of getting married in Maui but, as we live in the UK, we didn't know where to start. We contacted White Orchid and were extremely lucky to be assigned to Nalani. She was WONDERFUL. Right from the start, she listened to everything we wanted, had brilliant suggestions, and always paid attention to detail. It has now been two weeks since our wedding. We are home in England, reflecting on what a perfect day we had. Nani coordinated everything flawlessly. Literally perfect. Thank you so much, Nani and the White Orchid team. :-)

  • Professional, patient, kind, and helpful. My husband and I were extremely pleased with how things came together. In fact, everything form the table-setting to the flowers to the wedding venue and all the vendors involved exceeded our expectations. Planning a wedding from a distance had the potential to be stressful and risky, since it can be impossible to check on things. Thank you for making the planning process so painless and stress-free. Friends kept asking me if I was overwhelmed with the planning, and I happily would answer, “Not at all.” I had complete confidence in our coordinator taking care of things as we worked through the process. Our coordinator, Nalani, was especially sensitive to my needs as a person with disability and the needs of my family and friends. Extra special thanks to White Orchid Wedding (WOW) for installing new ramps at the beach house (without my asking) to ensure that I could access the house with no problems. We will definitely contact WOW if... Read more

  • I would highly recommend A White Orchid Wedding to any engaged couple. Kendall was amazing to work with; she was easy to get in contact for any of the questions or concerns I had (and I had a lot!) , she listened well to and respected the ideas/visions/budget I had, and she was laid back and reassuring, which calmed my nerves that everything would run as we had planned. Overall, Kendall is a fantastic coordinator to work with and made the planning and execution of my dream wedding come to life without a hitch. On the day of, everything ran so incredibly smoothly (hair and make up, photography, videography, and transportation all arrived on schedule) and looked better than I had envisioned, that even now, I have a difficult time verbalizing how perfect (and when I say “perfect”, I really do mean it. I honestly believe that there is nothing I would’ve have done differently) of a day our wedding was. And I cannot forget to mention WOW’s staff that helped to make my dream wedding h... Read more

  • We loved working with Kendall and WOW! Kendall was amazing. My husband and I decided to go with Day-of coordination so I did a lot of the planning and we meet with Kendall every so often to update her on any vendors we had booked, changes we made and to get suggestions. She always made time to meet with us and sometimes with short notice. I felt confident that we could leave our special day and all the little details in her hands and not need to worry about anything. She also met with our DJ to go over details with him to make sure everything ran smoothly, which they did. The day-of Kendall put their best coordinators on it and we were so happy with everything. Kendall and the team at White Orchid Wedding were so genuine, so professional and we could not have gotten through our wedding day without them!

    We are so happy for the two of you! Thank you for your kind words and we are also so happy to have Kendall as a part of our WOW team. Cheers to the newlyweds!!! xoxo

  • Kendall and WOW were both amazing to work with. Kendall was an absolute pleasure making every step of the way as easy as could be! I had never met Kendall in person and only worked with her through phone calls and emails, but she was more than wonderful and after working with her I wouldn't have had anyone else help plan our dream wedding. Kendall is very kind, helpful, and most of all very patient taking every single little thing, change, and/or detail into consideration. I would highly recommend Kendall and WOW to any bride/groom.

  • Kendall and WOW weddings were a pleasure to work with. They had relationships with top vendors to put together the perfect calibration for our perfect day. Coming from Kansas to get married in Maui, we needed local help to find the perfect vendors, venue and food. We found all that and more with WOW. They were easy to work with and made our process seamless for an out of town event with more than 60 guests. We would highly recommend Kendall and WOW for weddings or any special events in Hawaii. They sure gave us piece of mind in relaxing while they made our day perfect.

    WOW what can we say but MAHALO to you for the lovely post! We are so thrilled to make your vision a reality and your day so incredibly special. Come visit us again soon! xoxo

  • I’m not sure if they just cared less because we had a small no frills wedding (therefore they made less $$ off of us) but this company was a disaster to deal with. On one of the most special days of our lives it was truly disheartening... from issues with responsiveness, changing payment methods and rules, overpricing extras and options it was a mess. Our wedding planner that we had been dealing with actually cancelled on us the week before our wedding. Granted it was for a family emergency but they sent a very junior planner in her place who barely said two words to us on our wedding day. She was of no assistance, and our beach ceremony was riddled with naked kids and fishermen running through our ceremony. The icing on the cake was having to walk through a thorn bush on the beach on the way to see my spouse... our musician cancelled right before our ceremony as well. We weren’t notified. There was an awful replacement sent instead of who we chose. Never received our “special WO... Read more

  • My husband and I got married in Maui in April, 2018, which was hands down the best choice we ever made! When first looking for a Venue, we were overwhelmed with information, and wanted to choose the Best Bang for Our Buck! We stumbled upon White Orchid Weddings, when we found the White Orchid Beach House online, which looked absolutely stunning! Jacqueline, our wedding coordinator, quickly answered our questions and reduced our anxiety around planning! We weren't sure if it was possible, based on our budget, but Jacqueline's friendly and knowledgeable approach made it work! After seeing the White Orchid Beach House in person, we were absolutely thrilled with the location and beauty of the Venue. All of our guests said they couldn't get over the sunset, backdrop of the ocean and Molonkini crater, and sheer Elegance of the set up. Jacqueline and her Crew did an AMAZING job with the food, decor, flowers- and everything seemed seamless day of - I didn't have to worry about a thing! ... Read more

  • Bernie and Steven from WOW are nothing short of AMAZING! I thought planning a wedding from afar would be really difficult. I'm a bit type A and do a lot of even planning myself (see: control freak).But Bernie and Steven made it feel like a breeze! They were respectful of my budget and always worked with me to come up with innovative ways to utilize my budget. When I needed reassuring, they were there and made me feel confident in the decisions I was making. When I finally got to meet them in person, they were exactly like I imagined - warm and funny as heck :) THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for everything you did to make our day beyond special!
