PLANNING & DESIGN
Mauna Creative is Hawaii's wedding planning company, bringing unique style, attentiveness, and inspiration to both Maui weddings, Lanai weddings and beyond. We are a luxury wedding design and planning company with roots in the mountains (Mauna) from our award-winning sister company, Gemini Event Planning, one of the highest-regarded companies in Colorado. We apply our experience and collaborative approach to create incomparable events of all sizes and visions, because we believe the planning process should be as enjoyable and stress-free as the event itself. Our team works intimately with each client, spotlighting the focus of every event on not just its appearance, but the feeling it evokes and the lasting memories it creates.
We work hard to foster each client’s wedding dreams, often cultivating lasting bonds with our clients that continue past the events themselves. Our emphasis on authenticity in relationships extends to event vendors as well - we do not take any compensation from other vendors for recommendations and referrals. Instead, we provide recommendations based on our clients’ individual vision, goals, and preferences, and refer vendors based on their work ethic and quality. This structure sets us apart from many in the event industry.
As the Director of Education for WIPA (Wedding Industry Professional Association) in Colorado, we are held to the highest standards and have a work process that leads by example in the industry, always ensuring exquisite outcomes for the clients and the vendor team alike.
WE BELIEVE IN
Kindness being paramount with both our clients and vendors
Ethical work practices and being leaders in our industry
Curating events unique to each couple and investing the time to create such
Environmental friendly events that are stunning and also leave a minimal imprint

Jennifer is quite simply an exceptional human being. From the very beginning of our communication, she went above and beyond to share her knowledge and wisdom. It felt like her priority was to be as helpful as possible. Full stop. Whatever we needed.
Jennifer Pletcher, CEO and Founder of Mauna Creative, is not only an incredible planner but an extraordinary person. We are so grateful for Jennifer and the Mauna Creative team for helping us bring our dream wedding on Lanai to life.
Jennifer is the true definition of professionalism, and as she is such a genuine person, she cannot help but become personally involved in what will be the most incredible day of your life. Never have Chris and I ever worked with or met someone who so sincerely cared about our day as much as we did ourselves. Expectations are difficult to define, set and execute these days, but Jennifer exceeded every single one we had.
She is the most personable, loving kind hearted human being. She excels at her expertise, planning, organization, professionalism and creative flair! Multiple of our guests told us our wedding was straight out of a vogue magazine, thank you Jennifer! She is worth EVERYTHING to have on your wedding team, she will go above and beyond for you, I experienced that first hand, and a friendship I will cherish for life.
Aside from being an expert in her field, Jennifer is also a wonderful person and made every interaction a pleasure. She could not have been more kind, caring, organized and involved through the entire process. She went above and beyond, doing things way outside the scope of her contract—she literally did EVERYTHING.
Waves gently lapping against colorful beaches, strings of bright tropical flowers around your neck, a soft, sweet-smelling breeze tickling the palm fronds high above. What could be more romantic than a Kauai beach wedding? If you ask us, all of Hawaii’s islands are incredible, and their beaches and resorts are known worldwide for the most unforgettable Kauai Hawaii weddings and celebrations.
Between the many wedding vendors, coordinating the guests and securing your Maui wedding venue, hiring a Maui wedding planner can often be overlooked. However, taking back control of your wedding checklist and bringing calm to your planning process comes down to letting your wedding planner take the reins. But how much does it really cost to hire a professional wedding planner in Maui and does it fit into your wedding budget?
