Client Experiences

  • Opihi Love exceeded all expectations. They planned our dream wedding with us never even stepping foot on the island during the whole process. Now that is serious talent! They worked amazingly with our budget and we ended up with everything we wanted and more. Every time someone would ask if I was “so stressed out from planning a wedding.” I had to explain how amazing Opihi Love was. I knew everything was going to turn out perfect and had such little worry during the whole process. The day of the wedding we were supposed to have a hurricane hit, and somehow Opihi Love even made that situation feel like no big deal. No hurricane happened and it was the perfect weather. But knowing we had them to deal with all the logistics of that situation made us stay calm. We knew our wedding would still happen and be just as beautiful rain or shine! Opihi Love is an amazing team, and full of the sweetest ladies. You will not regret hiring them for your big day or any special event!

  • I’m happy I found Opihi love. What I loved most about them is how quickly they respond as I sent them about one million texts. On the actual wedding day , the reception was just perfect . Their style is fantastic and I have trouble trusting most people’s taste level. They have amazing taste and another great perk is everyone on the island knows them and likes them! Thanks Opihi Love!

  • Opihi Love made our wedding day beyond what we dreamed of! We could trust her design and she was easy to work with. She took our ideas and made it a reality. From our flower arrangements to her thoughtful attention to detail, she blessed our special day.

  • Kristin was an absolute dream come true! I can’t imagine my wedding planning without both of them. Kristin guided me through each step and gave me several options throughout the process. Thanks to them, I was stress-free! The execution of everything exceeded my expectations! Every one of our guests called it a fairy tale wedding and I truly thank them both for that compliment. They have exceptional taste and I would recommend them to anyone getting married on Maui!

  • If you’re looking for a wedding planner for a Hawaii destination wedding, you can stop looking right now. I cannot say enough incredible things about Kristin of Opihi Love! I have a classic Type A personality so I research EVERYTHING before committing. I scoured the web for hours to find the perfect wedding planner to plan my Maui destination wedding and I could not have been happier by choosing Opihi Love. They held my hand for a year and a half through countless phone calls and emails to ensure that I had my dream wedding. They kept me on track with the timeline which made my experience so super easy and stress free (not one bridezilla moment, meltdown, or lost hairs!). They are also very well connected to the best vendors on the island so you will be working with the crème de la crème (I listed the vendors I had the pleasure of working with – they were ALL AMAZING). And then there was the actual wedding day- the moment I arrived at my wedding venue, I was ELATED. Everything was so much better than I could have ever imagined. My husband and I both agree that our wedding day was the BEST day of our lives (thus far) and it couldn’t have been done without Opihi Love.

  • Wedding planning is scary. There are thousands of decisions to make, and every decision impacts the budget and the wedding guests experience. Everything was harder for us as we were remote – the wedding was on Maui and we live in Los Angeles. We were originally working with another planner and after being unhappy with their responsiveness, Opihi Love was recommended to us by three separate trusted sources on the island, so we reached out right away. Of all of our decisions, this was the easiest. It was immediately obvious that they were super responsive, extraordinarily professional and easy to deal with. Having interviewed other planners prior to meeting them, I was surprised by how reasonable their fee was as well. From start to finish over our +/- 12 months of planning, they were incredible. Every vendor they recommended exceeded expectations. Every email I sent to them (which was a lot – I am a pain in the butt) was responded to quickly. When we had difficult requests, they found ways to accommodate us. Even on the day of the wedding when we were desperately searching for a family member or friend to help deliver some things to our room, rather than go home, they stayed late and personally handled the delivery to ensure our guests could enjoy themselves and that we were stress-free. Our vendors loved them, our guests loved them, and we loved them!

  • When my husband and I first decided we wanted to have a destination wedding, we were really excited about it…and then we started planning! We quickly realized that planning a wedding in Oahu from Atlanta was going to take a lot more coordination and attention that we thought, and we couldn’t do it alone. We needed an Ace up our sleeve to make it happen! I’d seen Opihi Love’s work in an editorial, and I loved their mix of modern and romantic (with that perfect touch of boho). I knew they were the ones I wanted to help us plan our wedding, and they did not disappoint! From start to finish, Kristin helped us find the right vendors and guided us through our wedding journey. They were attentive, helpful and kind. We are so thrilled with how everything turned out! We had the wedding day of our dreams! Even more, our friends and families had the experience of a lifetime, and that would not have been possible without our wonderful vendors. Thank you so much, ladies! Your service means more than you’ll ever know!
