"Morgan and her team at Moana Events are by far the best of the best!!! After working in the wedding industry I had high standards for a coordinator. From the day we hired Moana Events they went ABOVE AND BEYOND our every wish and need. They are so fast to respond and efficient. I didn't have to do anything but say yes or no to their ideas, which was a dream! Morgan and the girls have a brilliant eye for design and you don't have to stress about details because they will take care of everything. We had so many sweet surprises from them on our wedding day like a monogrammed dance floor and dancing slippers! I highly, highly recommend them. You will absolutely not find anyone better in the state. Guaranteed you have seen their weddings all over Pinterest and Instagram without even knowing it. If you want a stress-free, STUNNING wedding you've come to the right place!"
"We had an amazing wedding on Kauai last year, and everyone who was involved with our wedding planning or attended the wedding absolutely loved Moana Events Team. We still wish we could get married again so we can work with them.
Not only Moana has the best tastes, they're so sweet and caring and dedicated to support brides (and grooms) for our big days.
We started the planning little early so got to work with the team for over 1 year and the process was so enjoyable, creative and detailed oriented.
Morgan nicely agreed to get on regular calls to check in even with 18 hours time difference back then, and Jennifer and Kayleigh were always quick and thorough on remote communications. (Wish we could have done more in-person meetings as it'd been so much fun!)
It was very important for us to establish an original look and style at the wedding with good music and food that our guests can remember of, and we were very happy we had a successful once in a lifetime event thanks to Moana Team!
We love Moana Events so much and forever grateful for their amazing job done! They're the best planners and amazing people, you can't go wrong with choosing Moana for your big day."
"My husband and I both have demanding careers and couldn't devote the time necessary to plan a wedding -- or frankly even the time necessary to manage a wedding planner! We were so relieved when we found Moana Events. We completely turned over the keys to them and they made our vision and more come to life. They were on top of every tiny detail, made it so easy for me to provide feedback, and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable with how everything was progressing. I can honestly say that we had ZERO stress planning our wedding. I think I'm the only bride on earth to be able to say that and it is 100% due to Morgan and her team. Morgan kept within budget and made sure we got the most for what we were spending. Our wedding far exceed all of my expectations. The night was truly magical! Beyond their exceptional wedding planning skills, the women at Moana Events are special people. Morgan is a bright light of happiness and warmth. She's a TON of fun, but also gets down to business and makes sure everything is perfect. I had full faith that no matter what happened, she could handle it. Knowing that she had everything under control let me be carefree to whole wedding weekend. I didn't have to worry about a thing. It was such a gift. I look back on the planning period and the wedding with nothing but positive feelings and blissful memories! My advice to any bride considering hiring Moana Events is this: absolutely go for it, you will not regret it! It was worth every single penny and more. After the whole experience, I felt like they should really charge double for their services. Also, I can't forget to mention Morgan's eye for design. She has impeccable taste and quickly understood who I was and how to express that with decor, colors, & flowers. You will also have the pleasure of working with Jennifer & Kayleigh -- these are two lovely, talented, warm women. I will never forget how special they made this day for me!"
"We got married at Kualoa Ranch in Oahu and it was the wedding of our dreams! I had a vision in my head and it came to life thanks to Moana Events. Living in Chicago I was worried about planning a destination wedding so far away. I really cared about planning all the little details that go into the decor and design. Morgan and her team have SUCH great taste and knew exactly what style I was going for. They care a lot about the small details and what the bride (and groom) want. From the first day I talked to Morgan on the phone I knew that I was in good hands.
When I hear so many stories about how stressful planning a wedding could be I feel lucky that I had a team like Moana. It was so much fun planning my day with them. They created such a beautiful experience that I will cherish forever! On top of that they are sweet and kind people.
I wish I could relive our wedding day 10000 more times. It was perfect :)."
"When my husband and I got engaged last year we knew we'd need an excellent wedding planning team. We were living on opposite coasts at the time and decided to have our wedding in Hawaii. We searched for the best and found it with Moana Events. They were flawless from the very beginning when we had our first consultation to post wedding day! They're very organized and have a great timeline strategy that always keeps us informed and requests for our next steps in the process. Our biggest confusion was vendors! How do we know who to hire for our wedding (ex: florist, makeup, band, etc.). Moana Events took care of all of that for us by first providing multiple options for each category that we could choose from based on our taste and style. That's certainly a strength about this team - they create a day for you that is YOURS. They want to have the environment fit the type of atmosphere you want to have. If you're wondering about quality, don't worry about that with Moana Events. They are top-notch when it comes to choosing decor, where pretty much everything they place before you exudes elegance and a very sophisticated and high-end wedding. When it came to the wedding day I was at TOTAL ease. They took care of everything for us and everything went on time. I felt like I had my own personal assistants at the wedding that made me feel like a queen; and the guests noticed because they can see the team walking around with professional headsets. I had a guest mention to me that they felt like they were at a celebrity wedding. At the end of the when night it was all said and done, I could not be happier with our wedding team. They cleaned up the venue and gathered everything that would be sentimental to us from the day and placed it in a box (ex: our dinner menus, table numbers, gift envelopes, etc.).
Don't think twice when it comes to Moana Events. When I mentioned to a few people that they were coordinating our wedding they always said "you hired the best." It was not a lie ;-)"
“Morgan and Moana Events are as good as it gets.
They produced a spectacular 3-day Big Kauai Wedding for 125 people that blew away our friends and family, and outstripped our wildest expectations. We were in fact almost embarrassed how perfect, seamless and glamorous it all was... and it's all to the credit of Morgan and her team.
I myself occasionally produce events in my work as a tech marketing VP, so I know how incredibly difficult big productions are to pull off. So much detail, so many stakeholders, budget push and pull from every direction, permits, vendors, bridezillas and groomzillas....
Moana Events handles everything, is on top of everything, and does everything with patience, love and always a smile. They were always in our corner, negotiating the best deals for us and "making it happen" even when other folks told us it was impossible. I recommend Moana Events unconditionally."
“Morgan and Moana Events are amazing and honestly the primary reason our 4-day Indian wedding in Kauai was as magical as it was. They are the most professional & talented team and we are so happy that they were part of our weekend! We planned three events with the team and honestly, each event was more beautiful than the next. They read up on all the cultural needs of our events – often times asking us questions we didn’t even know were part of a traditional Indian wedding. From the décor, to the logistics, to the food (which was vegetarian at all three events- even accommodating Jain diets), these two knew great vendors in Kauai who all were focused on making sure we had gorgeous events & happy guests, which we did!
Most importantly, all the vendors & Moana Events worked beautifully together to create a seamless experience so there was never a moment where we were hesitant something may go wrong. These ladies are wonderful people and you are truly lucky to have them at your wedding- they’ll not only create a gorgeous experience for you but they will honestly become your friends in the process.”
"Simply the best!!!! I live in Arizona and dreamed the perfect wedding in Kauai. Moana Events made this a reality. Planning a destination wedding can be stressful but that was not the case for me, thanks to Moana Events. Morgan & her team went above and beyond to make our special day perfection! After the first phone call my husband and I had with Morgan we knew she was very knowledgeable and perfect for the job. However, these ladies exceeded our expectations! Look no further Moana Events is the best! I would not change a thing about our wedding day and we wish we could relive it all over again. Thank you ladies!"
"Moana Events planned our Big Island wedding this fall. Wow! After working with Morgan and her amazing team for about a year, I can truly say how professional, creative, and hardworking they are. They went above and beyond to make sure my husband, family and friends had an amazing time.
Many guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to and gushed about how elegant, chic and how it exuded the perfect island vibe. All of the vendors Morgan recommended were fantastic. True artists and professionals. We were blown away!! The day was seamless and every detail was taken care of. Best of all she was incredibly flexible and open to my mother and my many many ideas. Thank you to all who made our wedding so so special. Hiring Moana Events is a must do!!
“If you are getting married in Hawaii, you will not find more professional, creative, high quality wedding “producers.” These women are truly extraordinary – working with you to understand your expectations, and then surpassing them at every turn.
We live in New York and we knew we wanted to get married on the North Shore of Oahu. We had worked with another planner for several months and for whatever reason, (about 2 months prior to the wedding date) the planner was unable to fulfill his obligations. We knew we needed super high quality, reliable, experienced professionals to take over. Luckily, we found Moana Events.
Most importantly, they literally created the perfect event (cheesy, but true) and worked hard to ensure that the couple enjoys it. The ceremony site was honestly magical. When we arrived to walk down the aisle, we were literally speechless – we could not have imagined it to look so stunning. I can’t say enough about Moana Events. With a life event as important as our wedding, all I can say is that I am grateful we placed our trust into their very capable hands.”
