We have been blessed to work with the most wonderful couples in Maui, Hawaii + Vail, Colorado and other amazing destinations. Their reviews are our biggest compliments and we could not feel more fortunate.

We value the relationships we build with our clients not only during the planning, but well after the day has concluded.

   We look forward to your partnership and are grateful for your trust and collaboration.  

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.  And my fiance and I weren't easy! We wanted something really specific for our wedding but we had absolutely no idea about the "how". Jennifer talked me through multiple moments of decision anxiety with patience, empathy, and positivity. She was always a text or a phone call away.

Jennifer took time to meet us in Maui and went out of her way to show us the ins and outs of the main venue option. (I left that meeting wanting to just grab a drink with her, she is so sweet!). Jennnifer's kindness and remarkable grace went above and beyond.  Jennifer's humanity and love shine through her professionalism. She is a woman I would want by my side the day of my wedding. She is a woman who I believe would be right there with a pep talk or a hug. There's nothing but good energy when it comes to Jennifer. She is a gem, and I am grateful to have met her.

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.


One of the greatest joys we had throughout the process of planning a wedding was meeting Jennifer. Looking back we really don't know how we would've planned our wedding without her.

As a planner Jennifer is well respected and loved by colleagues and partners. She's also organized, responsive, accountable, and inspiring. She is full of ideas and inspiration whenever you need a thoughtful partner along your planning journey.

Even more, she's an incredibly thoughtful and caring person. She was there every step of the way checking in on me and my husband and making sure we were happy, feeling good, and able to enjoy the very special time of planning a wedding.

Jennifer and Mauna truly blew our minds away with how special a wedding could be. With them in our corner we were able to really be present throughout our wedding weekend and enjoy every minute of it. They took care of everything needed to make the weekend everything we dreamt it would be and more. We will forever be grateful to Jennifer and her team

Is there such a thing as love at first sight or conversation when it comes to your wedding planner? Because that is what happened for us. Jennifer's personality/laughter/commitment/spirit is captivating, and she creates a sense of calm before, during, and after such a stressful/exciting event. Jennifer genuinely cares about you as a couple and listens to your every need and executes like a secret ninja in the night. When we were considering planners we honestly did not see or understand the importance of having someone help guide us along the way (mostly because he thought I was able to do it all) and brides and grooms let me tell you. Book the event planner and book Jennifer. If you are reading this, you are more than likely in search of a wedding planner/designer, please allow me to save you countless hours of research and loads of stress. 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. Jennifer, where do we even start? It was truly quite a remarkable experience to work with the best in business, but to come through with a dear life-long friend we will always think of and thank you every New Year’s Eve is the best feeling. Two years ago, who knew Chris and I would be faced with planning a wedding during a pandemic resulting with many difficult hurdles and hoops to jump through during the most highly anticipated year of our lives. It felt really stop and go for us as 2020 started to unfold, and reality hit us hard 3 months before our wedding, we found out that the location for our wedding in Vail would not be doing events until the foreseeable future. Queue the anxiety and all the panic, but also queue Jennifer to the rescue and already being three steps ahead of our dilemma. Jennifer had already put our names down at another back-up location without even telling us. I mean come on! Chris and I considered a micro-wedding, eloping, and even thought about postponing and whatever we decided we knew Jennifer would help us pivot to make that day be extra special.  On top of all of that she somehow takes your messy Pinterest board into a beautiful work of art. She reads your mind even when you do not know what you want to say or even know what you are missing. Jennifer’s energy and positive vibe is something that we leaned on countless times throughout the day, having just gone through this we understand the eb and flow of the highs and lows of the stress of planning a wedding. Jennifer is your consistency and balance. In our darkest hour Jennifer was our light, never did she skip a beat, never did she let us fall too far from our budget, and our number one goal of becoming husband and wife.

Jennifer is the most incredible wedding planner I could of ever wish for. I am honestly at a loss for words how to express what she meant to us. I have never felt more blessed to have Jennifer come into our live when she did. She is the most personable, loving kind hearted human being. She excels at her expertise, planning, organization, professionalism and creative flair! Planning a wedding  with Covid-19 happening and multiple loss’s of our love ones, it was definitely a challenge and she was our rock, she made what seemed the impossible happening happen... she created the most magical dream wedding we could ever imagine, we are still blown away by how perfect it was, how perfect our wedding team was, and we sincerely owe it all to Jennifer. 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. Mary Rudolph xoxo

When we met Jennifer Pletcher we immediately recognized that she was extremely knowledgeable about all it takes to plan a wedding and has deep connections to any vendors that you could ever need. She started contacting people on our behalf at our first meeting, before we even hired her. She made the whole process very easy and was always available whenever we needed. 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. I’m sure we only saw a small fraction of what Jennifer did to make our day perfect as she is constantly working behind the scenes with all the vendors, reviewing contracts, creating spreadsheets, and proactively dealing with issues before we were even aware of them. During the wedding she is in the background orchestrating everything to make sure it runs as smoothly as possible. Our wedding was the largest wedding that our venue had ever hosted, with more vendors and setup than they had dealt with before, and you would have never known because Jennifer made the whole thing work seamlessly! The wedding was more perfect than we could have ever imagined. It was a dream come true thanks to Jennifer. All of the vendors she recommended are truly amazing, we definitely had a dream team. We are beyond grateful to have met and worked with Jennifer and would recommend her to our closest friends and family without any reservations. She is the best.
