PLANNING & DESIGN
Mauna Creative is Hawaii's wedding planning company, bringing unique style, attentiveness, and inspiration to Maui weddings, Lanai weddings , Kauai 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.

Kindness being paramount with both our clients and vendors
