- Wedding: February 2011
Hi! My husband and I just got married in Maui (white orchid beach house in makena) approx 4 months ago. We used White Orchid Wedding for all our needs except our photography. They were absolutely great, the only draw back was the 20% fee for everything, but it was worth with. Our coordinator (bernadette) took care of everything. We have approx 20 guest, my max is 25. Their website was very helpful and had tons of ideas and choices. We arrived in Maui the day when the Tsunami happened and we stayed in Westin Resort Maui and Spa. Due to the chaos of the Tsunami the night before we were upgraded to the suite the day after. Very friendly staff, but do not and i repeat do not try out their salon and spa, it was so horrible we demanded a refund. Our hotel booking also came with free breakfast, which was helpful due to breakfast was $30 a person. I too was scared of having a destination wedding due the distance and uncertainty, but my coordinator took care of everything to the last minute. Actually, my husband did not want to go to Maui because he did not want to leave our babies (dogs), but after alot of convincing from our dependable petsitter and multiple home pet cam, he finally agree. After 4 months, all I hear from his mouth is how he wants to live in Maui. I hope this helps. You can email me if you have any other questions. Good luck and congratulations!
