In my limited experience the idependent coordinators were cheaper.  We used Enchanted Weddings of Maui and so far really like Lisa.  Think about your venue first.  Do you want to get married on the beach, then have the reception at a restaurant, or do the whole thing at a hotel?  Your price range seems doable either way.

Me again!!  I’ve been speaking to a wedding planner a bit but haven’t hired her.  I have heard that independent planners charge about 18-20% of your entire wedding cost as their fee.  The hotel ones don’t charge extra since they work for the hotel and you are havin gyour wedding there. 

It seems like most independent ceremony packages are cheaper though, whereas the hotels are a bit more. But when you add on the reception and stuff, it can be easier/cheaper to do it all in the same place.

@shiney:  I looked into this place!  Those photos are absolutely amazing!!

I decided against it because you have to organize everything yourself, hiring separate caterers, rental companies, etc.  Gorgeous though!
