Marie, from the very first phone call, you were an incredible partner and planner extraordinaire!  Both of you are consistently detail oriented, enthusiastic and committed to the project, always available and attentive, supportive and extremely patient!


One thing that really stands out to me is that you were both deeply vested in helping make our vision come to life! Tiare, I cannot tell you how much I appreciated you showing me the picture of the gold table cloth and asking me if I still wanted it on the sweetheart table. It may seem like a very miner issue, nevertheless which meant so much to me because it demonstrated that you understood my vision. Countless guests have said it was the best wedding they have ever been to and everyone is still talking about it. You completed this fabulous occasion without a hitch. Legacy Events truly has a talent for orchestrating every intricate detail with special consideration to many of the subtle aspects that others may overlook, i.e. the overall ambiance, the mood and energy of the guests, hospitality touches and so much more!


Marie, I am not sure if you remember my boss was there and she told me that she talked to you for a little bit and told you that this one of the most organized events she has ever seen. Well, she is one of the most organized people I know and that compliment coming from her is a testament to your hard work, dedication, execution, preparation, and organization.


Since we have returned home, people keep asking, “How was your wedding?” and all I can say in response is that it was perfect! The reason for that is the two of you.  All of your hard work did not go unrecognized.  Everything was picture perfect.


Oh, and one more thing.  My walk down the aisle was like a dream. Everyone said it was amazing when the limo pulled away and my dad and I were standing there. Another great suggestion by the two of you!


Spencer and I so appreciated all the little things that did not go unnoticed.  Just to mention a few:  Having water after the ceremony, accommodating an extra guest and a no show at the last minute, filling up our glasses with champagne, changing the schedule of things when needed, saving the top of our cake, making us a dinner plate, making a dinner plate to go, including giving us an opportunity to enjoy our wedding cake (it was amazing around midnight that night!)  Really just being there for us and our guests. Tiare, you put my flip flops on because there was no way I could lean over in my dress. Marie, you got my earrings for me and my Mom told me that she never needed to carry her purse because you always had it. Literally I am tearing up while I am writing all of this you guys did so much for us!


I cannot thank you enough.  This day that I have had in my mind for years was executed flawlessly. It is because of each of you that we have the most incredible memory of our wedding day. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for making this day so beautiful and so special. We will never forget that day as long as we both shall live. . .  When we return to the Kauai we would love to say hi 🙂


Spencer and Melissa

Aloha Marie,

I just wanted to personally thank you for turning my wedding planning experience completely around. I feel so grateful to you, because I found you at a time when I was experiencing so much stress. Things not only feel back on track, but I feel like we (Efrain and I) are connecting with the vendors and people who are meant to be a part of our wedding.

You have been so attentive, and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it. While I have a feeling it is how you operate with all your clients, I just wanted to let you know that you don’t need to worry about getting back to me in rapid fire time. I trust you! You have been an answer to a prayer for me 🙂

With Gratitude,


Hi Marie,

Now that I am (sadly) back to reality I just wanted to say thank you for everything you did for our ceremony. Everything was perfect and easy, and more importantly, low stress! All of the different contributors were excellent and I couldn’t have asked for better. Brian even came through with some clutch advice about using the car mats to sit on after Andrew went for a swim. 😉

I definitely enjoyed your company, and appreciate the extra steps you took to make me comfortable as a “lone bride.” I was definitely less nervous. Thanks again!


Aloha Marie,

Jack & I are finally getting settled back in Texas and can’t stop reflecting on how wonderful our wedding day was.  We just wanted to say thank you for everything.  I interviewed several wedding planners before I found your name, and as soon as I talked to you on the phone I knew you were the perfect coordinator to help us plan our wedding.  Your attention to detail, reliability, and dependability were so helpful for me during the planning process.  You were so right-on with all the advice you gave me, which is SO wonderful when trying to plan a wedding from across the ocean.  The wedding day went off without a hitch and everything was so smooth.  I had no stress on my wedding day and knew that you had every detail under control.  I think about how my mom and sister were reading books in the bedroom of the Anini guesthouse while I was having my hair & makeup done- I love how chill everything was and how everyone felt so relaxed.  This is all a testament to your wonderful work and careful planning. I almost wish we could get married again so I could plan another wedding with you – it was so much fun! 🙂 (Maybe a vow renewal in a few years??)

We are already planning our next trip to Kauai and can’t wait to get back.  We miss it so much!  I looked online at theknot.com and weddingwire.com to see if you were listed to write a review, but couldn’t find you.  If there is somewhere you would like us to leave a review, we would be happy to.

All the best!


Jack & Megan

Aloha Marie,

Thank you for the sweet card from you and Leah! You thoroughly exceeded our expectations! Kelvin, Pono, Megan, the flowers, the location, your attention to details, everything was just perfect!  I only wish we had you help us with the reception too! I am going to definitely recommend you and write a review on Yelp. That’s how I found you!

We hope to be back to Kauai one day soon and would love to surf with you and hear your husband play at a local spot. I absolutely love Kauai. It is so incredibly beautiful and peaceful. I have to say people there are some of the most friendliest people I have ever met.

Before I forget, I checked in with my cousin Lacy Levine. She made the cake toppers. I told her you were interested in connecting with her. Here is her email address (lacycaketoppers@gmail.com). She also has a FB post called Lacy’s Cake Toppers.

If you do not mind, do you have the contact information for Pono? Some of my guests and I would like to buy a copy of his CD.

Again, I can’t thank you enough for making our day so special! I included a photo of us from the wedding and a photo of us completing our first Ironman together.

With much love and peace,


Hi Marie!
I just wanted to thank you again for all you did for us to make our wedding day so special! You and Leah did such an amazing job to make sure everything ran smoothly, and ensured that all of our wedding wishes came true! We couldn’t have done it without you two, and our day would not have been so special without your help.  I have to tell you that our guests cannot stop talking and saying what an amazing and fun wedding we had!  That reaction was our “goal”.  We wanted to make sure our guests had the time of their lives, and they did thanks to you! Everything we planned went off without a hitch, and again, we couldn’t thank you enough! With your help, we were able to enjoy our wedding day and be carefree.  It was an unforgettable day for everyone, and a dream come true! You and Leah are amazing!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
Much love,
Angie and Ryan Bergen

Aloha Marie!
Just wanted to tell you how happy Nick and I (and everyone else!) were with the wedding day!!! Everything was even better than I imagined. The beach was beautiful, the flowers were amazing, Meagan did a wonderful job with hair and makeup, the luau was a blast, especially being front and center! And we can’t wait to see Naomi’s photos! You and Leah did a super duper job and we really enjoyed meeting you both!! Thank you for everything you did!!! It really was a perfect day!!
Nick and Sara Sturdevant 🙂

Hi Marie,
Kirby Dillberg mentioned you in a comment.

Thank you for doing such a great job as our wedding coordinator. Through the entire wedding I kept thinking to myself – ‘We could not have done this without her!!!’ – Your help was invaluable!”


Kellin and I have been talking quite a bit about how wonderful it was working with you. I don’t think you could have done a better job and despite the rain, you helped make the day and the time leading up to the wedding very easy and stress free for us. I know there were a lot of details to pull together and even last minute changes to consider due to the weather and we both couldn’t have been happier with how you handled everything. If we find out about anyone else that is thinking about getting married in Hawaii we will certainly be putting in a very strong recommendation that they reach out to you!

Please also thank Jonathan Irving and Pono as well. We thought they were great!!!

By the way, we were sent a couple shots from Michelle that I’ll forward to you in another email.

All the best,

Marshall & Kellin

Thank you so much for making our wedding planning easy and fun! We appreciate all you have done!

Dear Marie,

I just wanted to thank you again for helping me plan and coordinate our wedding. Thank you so much for being so patient with me when I would make last minute changes and additions. Our family loved everything. We especially loved the hula and fire show. I can’t thank you enough for all the help you’ve given me and for taking the stress and worries out of planning our wedding. Thank you again for everything!!

Anne and Constante

Dear Marie,

Thank you so much for your help and advice over the last few months. You have taken away so much of the stress and made a process that would have been nightmarish into one that was actually pleasant. Our wedding was only possible with your help. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
