Founder + Co-Owner + Planner + Designer
Born and raised on the island of Maui, Jane grew up on the gorgeous beaches of south Maui. She has a background in fine literature, creative writing, and journalism from the University of Colorado, Boulder and even pursued a short stint as a sushi chef after attaining a degree in Culinary Arts and Food & Beverage Management from Johnson & Wales University as well as the Art Institute of California, where her love of art and design was born. After graduating she returned to Maui and by chance fell into event planning serendipitously, and SURPRISE…she found her calling as a destination wedding planner! As a hopeless romantic with an entrepreneurial spirit, she created Belle Destination Weddings & Events in 2008 and has built one of Hawaii’s most prestigious and notable event planning firms. Belle has been her passion, her life and her family ever since. Lena and Jane began working together in 2005. Belle Destination Events sprouted from a mutual love of planning, all things weddings and a need for a higher quality of service here in Hawaii. Together, they have created this incredible labor of love!
