Amy & Larry
Location: Mokapu Beach
“Let’s be honest here– Weddings are expensive. My husband and I had a vision of having a destination wedding, married on a beach in an intimate setting, but not break the bank. We are from Coquitlam BC Canada. We’ve never been to Maui and we chose this place because most of our guests haven’t been either and they were super excited about it as soon as they heard our ideas. It was the perfect excuse to travel.
We did our research a year before our set wedding date and after contacting several wedding co-ordinators over the phone, I felt most comfortable with Leah Robb from Island Wedding Memories and we booked her right away. (Here’s a tip brides-to-be… Don’t wait!! The best vendors get booked up a year before!) She was responsive and you could tell she’s very experienced. I don’t typically trust vendors easily but I could confide in her after a couple messages back and forth. She was genuine and patient. We gave her a budget and she was able to stick to it closely, while updating the cost every time I’ve requested a change. She was very organized and that chimed well with me!
The electronic package she had provided us was most appreciated. It had the day of schedule and I didn’t even need to create my own Excel files. She is a one stop-shop! Our wedding day took place on Mokapu beach right before sunset. It went smoothly and we couldn’t have asked for a better setting. We had our reception at the Upper Pond at Gannon’s and Leah coordinated really well with the restaurant. She decorated the table exactly how I would’ve liked and her floral arrangements were gorgeous.
Choosing Leah as our wedding coordinator was one of the best decisions we’ve made as it took the stress out of the wedding planning process. I wouldn’t have been able to organized this on my own and had so much local knowledge as first-time visitors, had we not asked Leah to assist us.
Thanks Leah for making our day memorable! Mahalo~”
