I’m based in California and plan corporate events as my occupation, but knew I needed someone local to Maui who had the knowledge, the vendor relationships, could help me figure out my vision for our wedding, and execute on it. I also knew I needed someone who could gently push me along when planning the wedding began to feel like an extension of my job. 🙂 Tami excelled at all of these criteria…and more! We had a long engagement (1.5 years), and I feel like I went from never knowing what I wanted, and stalling on making decisions, to having a VERY precise idea of I wanted, along with high expectations in the last month or so…. (sorry Tami!) But Tami took it all in in stride with a positive and upbeat attitude. Tami provided a great list of vendors, but was open to working with a few I found on my own. She was very responsive and did a great job executing all of my requests. Our wedding day was perfect and I’m so thankful for everything that Tami and Amber did to make it that way! ~ Apryl A.
I wish I could give more stars! Thank you Taryn and Gabriella for allowing us to have the most wonderful day of our lives! Everything was so perfectly organized and taken care of, giving us complete peace of mind to just enjoy and absorb all the love and joy of the day! With both our crazy travel and work schedules, we couldn’t imagine pulling off a destination wedding without you guys. We received so many compliments from friends and family about how smoothly and perfectly everything turned out! As a bride who’s pretty clueless about wedding planning, and not a ton of aesthetic sense, Taryn did an amazing job making recommendations along the way that were both practical, and exactly what we wanted in terms of look and feel. Taryn totally respected our need to stay within a budget, and offered some amazing advice on how to best do that. She’s extremely organized and on top of her game. During the entire year of working with Taryn, she’s always extremely prompt in her replies, and always with the most uplifting and upbeat attitude, which took so much of the stress of wedding planing out of the process…even our families loved Taryn and Gabriella! Thank you again and I would definitely highly recommend Platinum Weddings & Events to anyone getting married in Maui!! ~ Sharon C.
Taryn was the most supportive and resourceful wedding planner I could have asked for! She stood by us when our florist bailed and even through a possible hurricane! It has been an absolute pleasure to work with her. What makes her exceptional is her responsiveness, undivided attention and care to detail, and her clear passion for weddings. She doesn’t treat me like I’m just another person getting married on Maui, which was the vibe I got from a few planners I interviewed. Even when I did not go with some of her recommended vendors, Taryn was very supportive. Regrettably, my first choice florist flaked out last minute and Taryn was able to secure another one last minute! While some people do not think they need a wedding planner, peace of mind and support is necessary and priceless. Even the most organized human beings, like me, needs help in battling the beast that is a destination wedding! So many things can go wrong, and it usually does. Mine was a small wedding (25 people) and I could not have pulled it off without Taryn. I highly recommend her. ~ Angela N.
Taryn is unbelievably great at her job. She made the entire process of my wedding run so smoothly and no small detail I ever mentioned to her went unnoticed or forgotten. She is extremely organized which made it so much easier to let go completely on the wedding day and enjoy all of the hard work that went in to it. I would highly recommend Platinum Weddings & Events to anyone and everyone. No matter how big or small your event is (my wedding was 100 people), Taryn and her team are capable, professional, and amazing, and will make your life easier and your event awesome. ~ Lindsay H
