  1. Peggy was everything I dreamed of and more! She was mother, professional and friend all rolled into one..truly a fairy godmother for my special day. Peggy and Michael (officiant and photographer extraordinaire!) is a magician with the camera and captured our special day in traditional and unique ways. We are delighted each and every time we look at the amazing book he put together for us. They are a dynamic duo that provide beauty, laughter and treasured memories for that special day. My wedding was everything I dreamed it would be and I could not have done it without their help and support. I highly recommend them for wedding planning and photography for all occasions!

    Thanks to everyone at Maui Aloha Wedding for making our day absolutely flawless. You made the process so very easy! For us, a huge benefit to their company was the all inclusive, one stop shop for everything you could need. As it was a destination wedding, and we were only somewhat familiar with Maui, the idea of finding vendors was a daunting task. Peggy literally supplies information on everthing you need, from catering, to cake, the minister, photographer and much much more. To this day, I still get comments from our wedding guests on how fabulous the ceremony was, and how it was hands down the best beach they have ever been to! I would recommend Maui Aloha Wedding to anyone and everyone! These guys really know what they are doing and are fun to work with! Thank you so much!

  3. From the moment we hired Peggy Temple and Maui Aloha Weddings as our wedding planner it was clear that we had made the best and most important wedding decision. Peggy brought to our planning a level of expertise that one rarely sees in wedding planning or for that matter any event planning. She has access to the top vendors from venues, music, videographers, flowers, hair, makeup and the list goes on. Her team flawlessly orchestrated the wedding day and made sure every detail was perfect. We were able to relax and enjoy our special day.

  4. My wife and I visited the Hawaiian islands for our honeymoon and recently vacationed on Maui after 32 years of marriage. To celebrate and recognize the event we used "Maui Aloha Weddings". They developed a program just for our needs that tapped into the beautiful culture of Hawaii. It was conducted on the beach just at sunset and the pictures that they were able to get were fantastic. I highly recommend they services if you are getting married, renewing your vows or just want to celebrate your time together. 5 stars.

  5. My wife and I renewed our vows with Maui Aloha Weddings last week. They performed a great ceremon y, and it added significantly to our experience in Maui.

    When my wife and I began the process of looking into a wedding, we wanted someone who would treat us like part of their own family.  From the first time we talked to Peggy at Maui Aloha Weddings, we knew we had found our company.  She was extremely accommodating and had amazing suggestions when it came to finding locations for both our reception and the perfect beach. On the day of the wedding, our minister and photographer Mike was fantastic.  His ceremony was wonderful and everyone especially loved the blowing of the conch shell at the end.  Afterwards, he took the specific pictures we wanted with our friends and family and he stayed out of everyone's way when it came to getting all of the action shots.  He did an amazing job of truly capturing the excitement of our big day. We would highly recommend everyone at Maui Aloha Weddings to anyone looking to have a Maui wedding.  We couldn't be more pleased.

  7. Thank you for a beautiful vow renewal. It was very special to have our three girls there to help celebrate!

  8. I had Peggy Temple as my wedding coordinator. I just got married in August 2014 in Maui and the experience was wonderful. I decided to book Peggy as my coordinator because she had done another wedding for a friend that raved about her. This was a huge help! I had a lot of ideas of what I wanted, but I had never been to Hawaii and didn’t have a way to make my vision all come together until I worked with Peggy. One thing that I think is really unique about her is she was always willing to take my phone call whether it was a small or big question. I felt like I really mattered to her.

    Peggy’s service/help was wonderful along the whole planning process, she made me feel like I was part of her family. The ceremony itself was wonderful and very relaxing. I was quite nervous, but Reverend Mike (who also did photography after the ceremony) made me feel completely at ease and relaxed. Our pictures are fantastic and we had Mike put together a wonderful coffee table book with them for us. My wedding would not have been as successful without Peggy, Mike and Maui Aloha Weddings. We can never thank you enough for making our trip and wedding so nice!!

  9. My husband and I decided to renew our wedding vows for our trip to Maui in July. We live in Florida so I had no idea where to begin and how the process worked to have a beach vow renewal. I began going on online and calling around but very few companies called back and many were also in my opinion overpriced. Peggy Temple from Maui Aloha Weddings called me and was a pleasure to speak to and went over everything detail with me and made me feel at ease that she would make sure that everything we wanted would be taken care of. Something else that was important to me was capturing beautiful pictures of our vow renewal since this was a once in a lifetime experience and having our kids there as well meant the world to us. Mike Yeany was our minister and photographer and was an absolute pleasure. Both Peggy and Mike got to the beach early to make sure that we got the best spot at the beach for the most spectacular pictures. We never felt rushed and they made us feel extremely special. I highly recommend MAUI ALOHA WEDDINGS for a wedding or vow renewal. Thank you Peggy and Mike again for such a wonderful time.

    Much Aloha,
    The Poli Family

  10. We renewed our vows for our 25th anniversary while we were on Maui with our family and close friends. The weather wasn’t perfect for the day we selected and Peggy was more than accommodating in making last-minute changes in order to have the perfect setting. It was everything we expected and more including the traditional Hawaiian officiant. Great memories for a lifetime!

  11. The first thing to remember about a wedding planner is that you do not want to worry about how your ceremony and reception are going while they are happening. You want to be able to float along and enjoy the experience. I believe that most families are happy that they hired a planner to assist them; we certainly were.  The second thing to remember is that you are the best judge of what you want in a wedding. You do not need someone to tell you what you should want, or what "all my brides" do. You need someone who will listen to you, and then make sure that what you want is what happens. Peggy Temple was exactly what we needed.  Peggy is a perfect combination of professionalism and charm. She thought of everything, took charge of every detail and allowed our rather complicated timeline to work. The most important compliment I can give her is that the event flowed effortlessly. We had a hiccup with the photographers being mixed up on the site. Reverend Mike brought his camera and he as an excellent photographer took some amazing photos and captured all the beauty of the moment. Moment that would have been a disaster was dealt with and we were put at easy in a minute.  Peggy has our highest recommendation! Reverend Mike has our highest recommendation! If there were more stars for a recommendation like one million, Maui Aloha Weddings would get it.

     

  12. My husband and I recently renewed our vows on Maui. The ceremony and setting were as romantic as we expected and Mike’s photography was awesome!

  13. Peggy helped me surprise my wife with the renewal of our vows. It was fun working with her and she made sure I was completely satisfied throughout the process.
    We ended up in a beautiful location, with several traditional Hawaiian ceremony aspects. Peggy ensured this moment was for us and even found a way to keep my 2 young boys involved and the ceremony. Amazing pictures, perfect music and a fun, unforgettable vow renewal. Mahalo Peggy! Our 10 year anniversary will never be forgotten.

  14. Steve and I got married on Sept. 17, 2014 and Peggy was totally in charge and I couldn’t have asked for anything more!!!! We wanted to get married at sunset, barefoot & on the beach—PERFECT!!!!!!

    I highly recommend Peggy and her weddings to anyone!!!

    Thanks again Peggy for making our wedding day absolutely WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. Our first Trip to Hawai’i and we decided to renew our vows for our 25th anniversary. Maui Aloha Weddings did a fantastic job to help organize all aspects of our renewal. Peggy was great to work with and she responded quickly to our questions, concerns and needs. Josh our minister was great and made our renewal a memorable occasion. After extensive online and interactions researching planners, I certainly made the correct choice with Maui Aloha Weddings.

  16. My new husband and I eloped to Maui and had the most incredible experience. Hands down, the best wedding I have been to, despite the fact it was mine. The entire team was incredible. Everything was better than I expected it to be. The videographer and photographer were fabulous. They coordinator and officiant made it incredibly special. They made me feel like I was the most important bride ever. They pictures turned out perfectly as well as the wedding video, which is in HD! Not only would I recommend them highly, but when I return to Maui in five years for a renewal, I will hire the entire team again. I am the happiest bride ever! I couldn’t believe how low their rates were as well. I received well more than I paid for.

  17. We planned our wedding from California through Maui Aloha Weddings, Peggy Temple answered every one of our questions promptly and made us feel like her old friends. I can’t tell you how totally wonderful it was…….Peggy takes care of everything for you, She is amazing and Rev. Mike who married up is so comfortable and he was our photographer . If you want a beautiful wonder wedding this is the place to go. You will not be disappointed. I was recommended by a friend to Maui Aloha weddings who told me they where the best and thank you Judi she was right. Don’t put your marriage into just any ones hands go to Maui Aloha Weddings!!!!

  18. Peggy at Maui Aloha Weddings helped me organise the perfect vow renewal ceremony for our 10th wedding anniversary. From the very outset the service provided was bespoke and I felt a real interest in our day.

    To complicate matters I live 7000 miles away from Maui and there is an 11 hour time difference! But even this did not stop the ceremony being everything we wanted. Peggy was able to make suggestions and give us ideas we hadn’t even thought of. From the moment we arrived we felt everything was taken care of the wedding dress was collected and steamed, beautiful flowers arranged, hair and makeup artist even doves organised as well as a photographer and venue of course.

    The ceremony itself was perfect and the photographer took the time to make us feel at ease and made the photos fun and relaxed.

    Overall I couldn’t find a negative thing to say about Maui Aloha Weddings – thank you for a perfect day!

  19. Thank you Peggy and Mike. You made our wedding the best experience ever!! These guys are great!! Thank you for making it a stress free and romantic wedding. These guys are the best. Aloha !! Ted and Brigitte

  20. Absolutely happy with our experience. Rev Mike and Peggy were nothing but very courteous, kind and professional. My wife and I only can say just how lucky we were to place our best day to them. They did everything to make our wedding not just memorable but meaningful in every way… Wonderful pictures as well. Much aloha and mahalo to you both!

  21. I got married in November with Peggy`s help and it was wonderful. Everything was exactly as I planned and Peggy helped me with every little detail. They are really professional and maintain contact with you all along the process. And the photgrapher is also great. He is really patient and funny so the photo session is fun and relaxed. Bottom line it was a great experience and I highly recommend Maui Aloha Weddings, as your wedding planners. I will call them to renew my vowels in the future. Thanks for everything! Martin and Micaela

  22. Planning a wedding from the mainland to Maui is incredibly difficult. We never would have made it without Peggy’s guidance and assistance. She has a lot of contacts in the Maui area and got us some great vendors. Rev. Mike was the minister and also our photographer. He made us feel at ease, made us laugh and his photos were absolutely wonderful and exactly what we wanted. We communicated almost entirely by email, and Peggy was always responsive and quick to act. She was very earnest and genuinely cared about ensuring that our wedding met (and even exceeded) our expectations. We’ve never hired a wedding planner before, so it is impossible to compare her services to others, but we think anyone would be hard pressed to find a better planner/coordinator for their special day.

  23. Peggy was an absolute joy to work with throughout my wedding. She was extremely helpful the closer the wedding came. She made sure she was in contact with me the entire time and made sure we had everything in order for the big day. Everything went as planned and her attention to detail was spectacular. If there were any hiccups on the day of the wedding I had no idea (and still don’t). She helped get everything set up with the vendors and even helped make reservations for a dinner luau for us and our guests. I would 100% recommend Peggy as she is an amazing wedding planner and helps to keep things running smoothly and staying calm!
    The biggest difficulty in writing a review for Mike as our minister AND our photographer is to figure out which amazing point to start with. First of all — and seemingly most relevant, I guess — our wedding pictures are amazing. He is so funny and calm he put us both right at ease. His photos are a mixture of absolutely beautiful ones and really funny ones and artsy ones and ones that I know will be up on the mantlepiece for decades. There are ones where I think “wow, is that really me?” and ones where I go, “haha, yup, that’s me.” Our wedding was such an emotional day, and I think Mike really captured that. I can see our happiness — and that of our friends and family — reflected in the images that he took. I’m incredibly grateful to him for the part that he played in making our wedding such a wonderful experience.
    The two of them are an amazing team and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking to get married in Maui.

  24. Peggy was a pleasure to work with. She responded to our emails on a timely manner! This whole team was such a pleasure to work with and I can’t say enough great things about them! We really knew that she cared about us and that our wedding was important to her. If you’re reading this review and still contemplating if you should choose Maui Aloha Weddings and Mike Yeany Photography for your wedding, stop thinking and book them fast!

    Mike was creative, awesome to work with and has great attention to detail. He has an eye for beauty, and captured everything perfectly! Everything was happening so fast during the wedding that it was all a blur for us but thankfully Mike captured moments we didn’t even know existed until we looked through all of our pictures. It’s like we’re reliving our wedding again!

    I have already looked at our wedding photos dozens of times. So many of our family and friends have complimented on the quality, creativity and spontaneity of the pictures.

    This is the best decision you will make for your wedding! This was our biggest decision for our wedding but they were definitely the right choice. Thank you Thank you Thank you Mike for capturing our dream wedding!!!

    We ordered the photo book as well and we’re so excited to get our wedding album!!!!

  25. Peggy was a true professional and we were so glad to have found her and her company. We had a few qualms about hiring a wedding planner but in the end they all proved unjustified. All went so well that we only have fond memories of our wedding on the beach. Thank you Peggy, Mike our photographer and our wonderful pastor. Best wishes from Germany.

  26. What a great company! Peggy handled everything down to dinner! We were able to have an actual vaca and a stress free wedding! Thanks for the memories!

  27. Peggy and Michael created the perfect wedding experience, from beginning to end. We were looking for something adventurous for our wedding ceremony (at the top of Mt Haleakala), and they seemed to be the only company willing to do that (other companies just offer beach/waterfall ceremonies as ‘adventurous’). Peggy was quick to answer any questions we had, from before booking the wedding to the end of the ceremony and beyond.

    Michael performed a unique and very personal ceremony that was loved by everyone attending. After the ceremony Michael went above and beyond to take some more great pictures of us, hiking down with us some on the trail to the crater to take more pictures of us. Then it was time to say goodbye, which was a bit sad because we had really enjoyed his company!

    All the pictures he took turned out spectacular and were ready for viewing the next day! Thanks again for creating such a great wedding experience for us!

    If you are considering a wedding on Maui, be it at the beach, a waterfall, or something more unique such as what we did, you cannot go wrong with them!

  28. I worked with Peggy while planning our Maui ceremony all the way from Phoenix and was completely impressed by how easy she made the process. Truly, it almost seemed TOO easy, that’s not something you hear often with wedding planning.

    We had done a lot of research on other options in Maui for an elopement type ceremony and were beyond happy with the fair pricing, package options, flexibility and service we received. Would recommend Peggy and her services to anyone! We feel lucky to have had an experience that was JUST as we hoped it would be. THANK YOU Peggy and Maui Aloha Weddings!

  30. Peggy and Mike were wonderful. They really made our simple wedding special especially considering that we decided to get married 3 weeks before our trip. They were very nice and accommodating and listened to us. We had such a wonderful day and we couldn’t have asked for more. We highly recommend them. Thank you to both of you.
