Tori does it all, and she gives 120% 24/7. She has planned weddings for 17 years; she has served on the board of two wedding associations and is President of the Maui Wedding and Event Professionals; she has planned a wedding expo; she has participated in the Women Helping Women fundraiser for the past 4 years; and her weddings have been published, profiled and/or featured in Hawaii Bride and Groom Magazine, as well as on the Knot, WeddingWire, Borrowed and Blue, Style Me Pretty, and Groom Sold Separately. Tori not only plans weddings…she has planned Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, Bridal Showers, Baby Showers, Birthday Parties, Mixers and Networking Events, Rehearsal Dinners, Meet and Greets, and other special events. You can say she LOVES creating for you and with you. Planning and organizing is in her DNA! As a well-respected and knowledgeable wedding professional in the Hawaii Wedding community, Tori has cultivated and maintained amazing relationships with many quality vendors on the Hawaiian Islands. Oh, and she may even tell you about her 20 years of experience teaching Special Education in the California school system and in private practice as an educational therapist (yep, a Masters in Education!) and has worked in retail for several years! She can relate to you on MANY levels. Tori’s  special connection with Hawaii began in 1978 from frequent vacations with her family. It was meant to be that Hawaii was her wedding destination to her late husband Doug. While planning her own destination wedding in 1998, Tori was encouraged by local Maui wedding and event professionals to continue her passion and innate talent as a business, as she offered a very fresh and unique approach to wedding planning in Hawaii. Fortunately, her couples continue to benefit from that very same approach, as she wants couples to have the “above and beyond” experience whether it is a beach wedding for two or a luxurious wedding ceremony and reception for 350. Every Bride and Groom should feel like  a VIP on the wedding day and be a part of the wedding planning process. Couples appreciate Tori’s directness and honesty to ensure that they know what to expect for their wedding and vow renewals. Creative, flexible, funny, talented, gracious, giving, affordable, cool under pressure, resourceful, and able to handle any situation are commonly used words to describe Tori.  YOUR VISION OF YOUR WEDDING + OUR WEDDING COORDINATION EXPERTISE = YOUR PERFECT WEDDING IN HAWAII! LEAVE THE DETAILS TO US! Tori will help you in so many ways with your wedding. She does not just pass you on to others. She KNOWS flowers, colors, fabrics, lighting, and the inventory of the rental companies. Tori knows what works and does not work, and she will suggest ways to MAKE things work. With a background in teaching special education (elementary school, middle school and high school), as well as a private practice as an Educational Therapist, Tori’s original plan was to do wedding planning “on the side.” However, her business grew so fast that she became a full time wedding planner/coordinator and event designer. Tori also has retail background (and a fondness for shopping!), a party planning background, experience as a bridesmaid (13 times), and destination bride. She can relate to you on ANY level. (5 Fun Facts about Tori: 1) Favorite rock bands include Bon Jovi and Journey, 2) Favorite TV Show-all of the Law and Orders 3) Favorite color is purple  4) Favorite place is the beach! 5) Favorite food is Caesar Salad)

Tori Rogers is amazing in every way, she is truly an expert wedding coordinator. After answering just a few questions at our initial meeting she was able to capture the vision I had and start setting up all the right details to make our wedding day perfect. She followed up frequently and gave great advice on to make the big day go off without a hitch. During the wedding she was on top of every vendor and small detail and kept things flowing smoothly. Tori was worth every penny and then some. She put my mind at ease during the entire planning process and let me focus on enjoying the day for the actual event. I highly recommend Tori Rogers to anyone planning a wedding! She will help you, guide you, and most importantly of all make sure you enjoy the best day of your life. Thank you, Tori!

Tori is an absolutely fabulous wedding coordinator! She herded our cats/goat rodeo of friends & family with ease & grace and coordinated everything seamlessly so I didn't have anything to worry about. Her knowledge of Maui, vendors, & the Kihei/Wailea area is invaluable for a bride planning a destination wedding! Every guest raved about how amazing everything was & it was all Tori from coordinating the ceremony, to reception space decor, to finding the perfect cupcake shop. Could not have had a more perfect wedding and I could not have done it without Tori!

After attempting to plan my wedding from Pennsylvania and becoming overwhelmed with finding the perfect vendors and venues, I knew I was going to need help. Once I spoke with Tori I knew that it was a good idea to hire someone who was so knowledgeable with wedding planning. We purchased Tori's "Help Me Finish My Wedding" package and I am so thankful that we did! Tori was able to lead me in the right direction with lists of referred vendors to help with decision making and finding quality service. She was always available to answer my questions and provide guidance during my planning process, and she even found small details that I overlooked to help me complete my wedding. Tori's skills went beyond my expectations especially after seeing her in action during my wedding rehearsal! She kept everyone on track and on their toes so that things went smoothly and quickly. Leading up to the wedding, it drove me crazy knowing that I wouldn't be able to help set up the reception and all the wedding decorations; however, I was blown away when I walked into the reception and saw every thing put together! Words cannot describe how thankful I am to have had Tori and her team's help during the day of my wedding! If you are on the fence as to whether to hire a planner, I would recommend it a thousand times! It is totally worth having the extra help and to be able to know that all of your friends and family can have a great time and not be bothered with wedding details. And take my advice and hire Tori, she is the total package when it comes to wedding planning and is the most affordable on the island. Thank for from the bottom of our hearts for everything! Mahalo, Gray & Hilary

Tori and her team were absolutely amazing at transferring my dream Wedding from Pintrest, and making it a reality. I am what some would call a control freak and a bit of a perfectionist, but with Tori I trusted her expertise, and she came through big time! Not only was it everything I hoped for and more, but she also had a few surprises in store for us, that made our day just that more special. You will want to work with Tori if you have high expectations, and like things to be a certain way. Tori is precise, on the ball, and keeps people on their toes. She is just the person you want by your side to make sure things run smoothly, and even if they didn't you would never know because she solves problems quicker than you could notice them. Our Wedding was spectacular, and an unforgettable night, it was everything we wanted!

Tori did a fantastic job preparing us for the wedding and orchestrating the wedding day. We only hired her for day-of coordination, but she put in a lot of work in advance going over our information, making sure we had everything we needed, and giving us advice on how to tie up all the loose ends. She was in the loop on all last-minute changes and had our back when some minor problems with the venue arose prior to the wedding. On the day of, she was always available and prepared to grab us a bite to eat/drink, hold on to valuable items, and deal with uncooperative family members and other distractions. Our relatively small wedding turned out just like we wanted in the end, and Tori was a big part of that. We'd highly recommend her.

Tori and her team of wedding experts are quite simply a dream. You want peace of mind during one of the most important and stressful events in your life - call Tori. She has answers and solutions to practically anything. From venues to decor, to the best vendors and everything in between, she has it down pat. If you haven't considered putting money toward a planner, I can only say that Tori is a smart and economical choice. I would highly recommend paying for her service and I guarantee you will receive a beautiful, less stressed, memorable wedding. without Tori my dream wedding would not have become a reality. Her connections in the field are priceless. But it's not just her business savvy that makes her such a wise investment. Tori is just a nice person. Tori picks up her phone or answers late night emails with helpful advice and ideas in a flash. Tori is a people person and knows how to deal with most any personality and obstacle. When I got to Hawaii, I knew things were takin care of and I knew I could relax and enjoy my time with friends and family. Tori and her team were always kind and courteous leading up to the day with the millions of requests we had. On the day of the wedding, I was amazed and speechless. Tori listened to me and learned my style to a T. What she did took real talent and patience and she did a spectacular job giving me exactly everything I dreamed of and more. She also took care of things I never would have thought of and was so attentive the day of the wedding. I guarantee she put in 15+ hours that day, a holiday, and I never saw her without a smile on her face. People are still calling me about how incredible it was and that my wedding was the prettiest wedding they had ever seen. I can't tell you how many people came up to me complimenting my coordinator and I have Tori to thank for that. My wedding was picture perfect and was more than I could have ever asked for.

Tori was awesome to work with! We had a destination wedding in Maui and Tori did all the pre-work for us, as well as onsite day-of details. We communicated via Email for over 6 months prior and she tended to every little detail and every request. She was professional and attentive and put all my worries at ease. She found a fabulous photographer and florist. She was easily reachable and truly made our wedding all that we wished for. I would absolutely recommend her!

Tori is AMAZING! I can't put into words how fabulous she is and how she made my vision into a perfect reality. My wedding turned out exactly how I imagined and Tori made it so easy. I never once worried that she didn't have everything under control. She was there for me every step of the way. I highly recommend Tori as a wedding planner. She is awesome!!

Having a wedding thousands of miles away from home seems like an easy task....at first. Until the planning starts and then that is when the anxiety started! The questions we all ask - is this vendor the best? Is there someone else out there with the same qualifications to provide the quality we are wanting? There may have been but Tori nailed our vendors! Although we had her pulling her hair out from changing islands and venues, but when all was said and done it was like a lock and key! She found the vendors who were right for us and coordinated two separate photo locations! That is what matters, great communication, quality and what works best for your own vision. She helped us find ours from Dave Miyamoto the photographer, Henry the ukulele player our minister and definitely Vicky Nguyen for makeup! Can't thank Tori enough for helping our dreams come true!
