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)

When you hire Tori Rogers to plan your wedding, you are hiring the REAL DEAL! Not only did she have an abundance of great ideas for our wedding, but she kept us on our toes with her very detailed wedding summaries. Tori is incredibly detail oriented and organized, which kept us assured that our wedding was in very capable hands. When my friends asked why I was so calm on my wedding day, I just said that Tori had my back and I knew she would take care of anything that came up, and she did! Tori and her team of incredible professionals worked together to make our wedding beyond perfect. Everything was BETTER than we expected. She took the few ideas I presented to her and made our entire vision come to life. It helped that SHE was not stressed on our day because that kept me calm. My friends told me they had wished she had been their wedding coordinator because she was THAT fantastic. Tori is not a YES person, and we appreciated her direct and honest approach that she describes on her website. We trusted her immediately. Her extensive knowledge of the island and the vendors impressed us from our initial conversation. I especially liked that I was not passed around to different people in her company and only planned with her the entire time. She never complained about the many emails I sent, or my phone calls and texts. I knew she was planning other weddings, too, but she always made me feel important and like a priority. I know she is only taking a few weddings next year because of her book, so if you are lucky enough to hire her, HIRE HER!!!

Tori assured us from the beginning that our wedding would be just as we imagined, and she definitely delivered! We had never been to Hawaii so we were doing all of our venue scouting and vendor ordering remotely. Tori recommended a flower supplier that gave us exactly the flowers we asked for. Our wedding was VERY focused on flowers (petals on the aisle, flowers on the back of each quest chair and on the chuppah, flowers on the cake table, etc.), so this was probably the most important part to get right and the flowers were stunning. Besides that, Tori got us the right chairs, farm tables for our guest welcome, cake, and water stations, and provided her own nice water dispensers for infused water. She also recommended the PERFECT officiant and ukulele player! On the day of the wedding, Tori was on site early with hired help to set everything up. It was ready promptly as guests arrived and Tori kept everything on time through a VERY TIGHT schedule at the venue. In the end, even though the day was over in a whirlwind, we thought we had the beautiful wedding of our dreams and can't wait to get our pictures. Many of our guests said they decided they will never see a more beautiful wedding. Thank you Tori!!

Tori was the best! I really liked her ideas and she was always very responsive. I live in Seattle and wanted to have a small destination wedding in Maui and she planned everything! She had lots of great ideas and I felt like I was in such good hands. She was a good listener and very organized. I also felt like she was understanding of our budget. She gave me a list of recommendations and reached out to all vendors. Our wedding was one to remember and it was largely due to Tori. I can't recommend her enough!

We're very happy with how our wedding turned out. My husband & I both work full time and have a baby, and we didn't have much time to devote to planning our destination wedding, so we really depended on Tori to make sure we were on track with all of the decisions that we needed to make along the way. She knew all the right questions to ask, gave advice and recommendations, and figured out all of the logistics of how & when everything would happen on the day of. She was very organized on our wedding day, and I felt like I was able to relax & enjoy the wedding with her in charge. We highly recommend her!

Tori was awesome. She was very responsive and organized. Leading into the wedding she had created a document with all of the wedding itinerary and everything in one place. It made it really easy on us to express what we wanted and how it would happen. The day of was amazing. We didn't have to do anything but enjoy our day (and take a million pictures). We were super happy with Tori from the beginning to the end and we highly recommend her for your wedding. You won't be disappointed.

Tori is amazing! She made my day the best possible day it could have been. All my friends tell me how stressed they were on there wedding day and being completely honest I was so relaxed cause I knew Tori had it all under control. I plan on renewing my vows in 5 years and will be using Tori to plan without hesatation. Thank you for my dream wedding.

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.
