  • Cherise was a complete delight to work with. When my now husband and I set about trying to plan a wedding 2500 miles away in Maui during a pandemic, there were so many things we didn't even think of or consider. Cherise expertly guided us through every step of the way. She had excellent suggestions and ideas for every single thing we asked of her and was so patient and helpful as we changed our minds and plans. We never would have found our perfect venue without her. On our actual wedding day, she ensured everything went off without a hitch- and even went out of her way to hand deliver flowers for my hair. She is an awesome wedding planner who can really bring your wedding vision to life, and a wonderful person. I highly suggest her for anyone who wants a beautiful wedding in Maui!

  • Stop looking anywhere else and work with Cherise! I interviewed a handful of planners prior to choosing Cherise and it was the best decision. As cliche as it sounds, we had the most amazing, perfect wedding thanks to the incredible planning skills of Cherise. I couldn't have asked for a more magical wedding, our guests agreed it was one of the best they'd ever attended. Despite having to move our wedding 2x (from May 2020 to October 2020, to May 2021) and having to change venues, it turned out better than I could have imagined. Cherise was great at communication, so organized, and very methodical, which made the entire wedding flow seamlessly. I felt very relaxed and was able to actually enjoy the day without any stress because Cherise had it all handled. Being a designer, I can easily get caught up in the details, but Cherise totally understood the natural, casual beach vibe we were going for and made the best recommendations. She had helpful input on all the vendors and was super tra... Read more

    Aloha Kelsey, It was truly my pleasure to share the planning of your wedding day (or days - lol). I'm thrilled that you were happy with the planning and how everything came together on your wedding day. Your sweetness and input played a part in making it the day that it was. So thank you too ; ) I hope to see you on your next visit to Maui! xoxo

  • There is no name more fitting than “The Perfect Wedding Maui” for Cherise’s Planning and Coordination services. She went above and beyond every step of the way and was able to exceed my very high expectations. Cherise helped give us a day more magical than we could have even imagined! Because of Cherise, Brendan and I were able to stay present and truly enjoy every moment of our wedding day-instead of becoming distracted by the timeline and many details; we are so thankful for this! When my original wedding planner and day of coordinator found out she would have to miss our wedding day due to a necessary surgery, I was very anxious. She promised my husband and I would be in good hands with Cherise and she was not wrong. Cherise scheduled a Zoom meeting with us before we flew out to Maui to review the plans and made sure she understood them perfectly. We were instantly relieved after speaking with her and no longer had any concerns for our wedding day. Cherise was exceptiona... Read more

    Thank you so much Brook! You are the sweetest! It was truly my pleasure to step in and be a part of your beautiful wedding day. Your kindness and big beautiful smiles are the best! I'm so happy to hear that I was able to ease your minds as your big day approached. That's always our goal ; ) Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness!!!

  • I am originally from Maui, but I now live out of state. I had a vision in my mind about what I wanted in a wedding, but I didn’t really know how to bring that vision to life so I knew that I wanted a wedding planner from the start. I reached out to several wedding planners and Cherise stood out to me because she was so kind, patient with my questions, and made me feel like the wedding of my dreams was within reach and possible with the budget I set. While other wedding planners brushed me off, said my dream wedding was unrealistic, or simply did not respond to my inquiries at all, Cherise provided a wealth of information and guidance before I had even officially hired her. We got engaged in July 2019 and planned for a wedding in June 2020. We communicated with Cherise through email, phone calls, and Zoom meetings. Cherise made the whole process a breeze. Then COVID hit and everything was up in the air. We didn’t know what to do. Restrictions shifted from day to day and we tho... Read more

    Thank you so much Marissa for your sweet words and amazing review! I enjoyed every step of the way with you. I'm so happy you didn't let Covid get in the way of having an amazing wedding! Mahalo for allowing me to be a part of that with you. Wishing you all the best! Xoxo

  • Cherise and The Perfect Wedding was nothing short of extraordinary. Planning a destination wedding in itself was not stressful for us as we had a 2+ year engagement, but as the day got closer we realized many small details needed to be done & it added some stress to us. Cherise made all that stress go away. Sending emails & making phone calls back & forth to Cherise always made us feel better knowing she had done this many times before & knew what was best. Cherise did a great job setting up phone calls various times throughout the engagement to ensure we were on the same page when it came to the planning. We talked 1 year, 6 months, 3 months, 1 month and 2 weeks before the wedding. She was present at the rehearsal to help all wedding party and families know what to do for the wedding ceremony. She answered all all our questions with ease and confidence. A week before the wedding, she met with my family to go over details and on the wedding day day, her & her team did all setup ...

  • We've been planning for our wedding for over a year with Cherise. Throughout the planning process, she's always so attentive, proactive, and puts our best interest at heart. She only recommends us the best vendors in Maui. We love her genuine advice and how she went above and beyond to help us plan the best wedding ever. Although due to the crazy pandemic, we had to change our plan last minute, Cherise was always patient and helped us figure out the best Plan B, Plan C... We can't say enough about our appreciation for her wonderful services. Would highly recommend anyone to hire Cherise for your big day, because, SHE REALLY MAKES PERFECT WEDDINGS HAPPEN!

    Aloha Eric, Thank you so much for your beautiful words and kindness. I truly enjoyed getting to know you two and only wish we had been able to see our original Plan A come to life. I hope to meet you on Maui someday. Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness! Fondly, Cherise

  • Hiring a wedding planner is one of the first decisions you have to make in the planning process, and arguably the most important. We were fortunate that one of the Maui venues we were looking at recommended Cherise as she was incredible to work with throughout the entire planning process from our initial venue visit to Olowalu Plantation House to making sure everything went exactly to timeline and as planned during our wedding day itself! To echo other reviews, planning a destination wedding and having to make many key decisions from a distance can definitely be hard, but Cherise helped make this process as easy as possible from recommending an excellent set of vendors (Maui DJ Services, Anna Kim Photography, Maui Palm Tree Florals, Food for the Soul, Garnish Craft Cocktails, Miss B Calligraphy, Ka'ena Elaban) to translating my Pinterest inspiration boards and vague descriptions into reality to create my dream wedding from a design perspective. Cherise also did an excellent job... Read more

  • My (now) husband and I cannot say enough positive things about Cherise and The Perfect Wedding. Since we were planning our wedding in Maui from California, we knew we needed a lot of help. My husband and I spoke to a few different wedding coordinators but quickly decided that Cherise was the perfect choice. Her enthusiasm for her job came through on our first phone call, and her experience could not be beat. We’re still blown away by how much support and help The Perfect Wedding provides for such a reasonable price. Cherise went above and beyond what we expected from a coordinator. She held our hands through every step and was very patient with all of our indecisiveness around settling on some of the details. She responded quickly via email and we never once worried that anything was falling through the cracks. Because Cherise has experience on the island, she has relationships with all the major vendors and was able to help narrow down choices for us based on what we wanted to s... Read more

  • I truly wouldn’t have been able to enjoy my engagement/planning and wedding day without the tremendous help from Cherise of The Perfect Wedding Maui. She is the most organized, patient and understanding woman I have ever met! From when I first contacted Cherise, she was genuinely excited to get to know my fiancé and me. She always took the time to answer questions or explain a process. It certainly was a major bonus that she’s very well connected in the industry, too. My other vendors even sang her praises! Cherise was not only able to bring my vision to life on the big day, but she surpassed all expectations! From every detail and placement, it was indeed “perfect”. Even our guests adored Cherise and her daughter; they are the absolute sweetest. We will forever be grateful for finding The Perfect Wedding Maui. Thank you so so much, Cherise!

  • 100% having Cherise as our planner was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Originally we were going to be planning our wedding day from CA however we ended up moving back to Maui. We still decided to have a wedding planner for our day because she was so easy to work with and asked questions I didn't even think of for the day. She made the day seamless and took off all the stress from everything a wedding day intel's. I love that she has had many years of experience and a level of professionalism. She works with your budget and style! You can trust every step with her and know your day will be the Perfect Wedding day!

  • Cherise did a wonderful job and we would absolutely recommend The Perfect Wedding Maui!! I found her through a friend who also had Cherise plan their wedding, and it was the BEST decision we made during the process of planning our wedding. We planned everything from Oahu, and hired Cherise as a full planner. When we came to visit Maui to check out our venue and meet other vendors, Cherise made it so easy for us by organizing all the meetings. She was super responsive, really listened to what we wanted, and had amazing suggestions (like our twinkle lights dance floor backdrop that our guests LOVED). She did a superb job in making sure everything ran smoothly on the wedding day, which really was the wedding of our dreams!!! I didn't feel that stressed on our wedding day because I knew Cherise would take care of everything, and everything did end up going so well. Our guests couldn’t stop telling us how beautiful and fun everything turned out. Thank you so much for everything, Cherise!!... Read more

  • Cherise is really the key to having 'The Perfect Maui Wedding'! Chris and I cannot thank her enough for pulling together the best wedding we could of possibly imagined!! We are based in San Francisco and started working with Cherise about a year out from our wedding date. She made the entire planning process so seamless and effortless for us we were literally NEVER stressed!  She has such great relationships with all the vendors on the island, you can really trust that any vendor she recommends is top notch. From helping us secure our wedding venue (Olowalu) to all the amazing vendor recommendations (Food for the Soul, Miss B Calligraphy, Sunyas Flowers, Catered Coconut, DJ Boomshot) we loved them all! Chris and I never had a chance to visit Maui during the planning process so the first time we saw Olowalu in person was TWO days before our wedding. She did such an amazing job pulling our visions into real life, it was perfect.  As foodies (and coming from SF) it was really scary no... Read more

  • I have to admit, I wasn't expecting 'The Perfect Wedding' when I hired Cherise because I didn't think such a thing was possible, but that is exactly what we got! We planned our Maui wedding from San Francisco in just 5 months and Cherise was the dream maker who systematically and efficiently brought all of my ideas to life (and helped me innovate when things logistically just wouldn't work). And she did it all with kindness, positivity, professionalism and timeliness. I never had to wonder what the status of something was, she kept me in the loop and despite our time difference and being an ocean apart, I felt super connected to the entire process. Cherise suggested vendors (all of whom were top notch) and kept me from feeling overwhelmed (or underwhelmed) with choices, she brainstormed creatively and she was the maestro on the ground who executed a perfect event for nearly 100 of our friends and family. My guests are STILL talking about the food from Cafe O'Lei. The flowers fro... Read more

  • I want to thank Cherise Vonae at The Perfect Wedding Maui for putting together a flawless and amazing wedding on the beach for us during our vacation! Her attention to detail was just what we were looking for to take the stress off of us during our special day! From meeting us at our room to make sure the hair and make up was going as planned (also bringing flowers for my brides headpiece) to walking us through the Forrest for magical lighting & pre ceremony pictures, to making dinner reservations at a very nice local restaurant securing us a preferred table with an amazing view! No details were left untouched and I can not wait to see the photos from the professionals she contracted. If you want a true professional that will get the job done and has the experience to know how, she is the only one to consider!! We can not ever thank you enough for planning and being a part of our special day!! Mahalo 🌺💕🌈👣🌴🐠☀️ Todd & Nicky 6-14-19
