DEIRDRE + DARRYL
When Darryl and I started to plan our wedding, he was living in Vancouver, I was living in Singapore and we wanted to invite 250 friends and family from all over the world to celebrate in Maui. It was not a small task and we didn’t know where to begin. Then we met Jane and the team at Belle Destination Events. We went from total chaos and pie-in-the-sky ideas to organized spreadsheets of costs, an itinerary and the best vendors to choose from. Jane and Belle didn’t just plan our wedding, they planned an entire week of events that our guests still rave about today. Not only did Jane deliver on the entire week and wedding and keep us within our budget, but she has great taste that allowed me to step back a little bit when I was busy at work and trust her to make some of the decisions. By the time our wedding day arrived, we felt like a long-time friend who understood us and our style had organized the entire event. Jane and the team truly went above and beyond for us and I can’t recommend them enough. In fact, it was such an incredible, well-planned event for the 250 people that had flown to Maui for our wedding, that we’re already thinking of doing it all over again with a vow renewal :) Jane and Belle are the only people who could pull it off! We definitely recommend them as your Hawaii event planner!

"We couldn’t have been more pleased with the job that Lena did with planning our wedding."
We couldn’t have been more pleased with the job that Lena did with planning our wedding. Lena coordinated everything for us, from helping to find the venue to catering to photography and videography to all the little details that we never would have thought of. Our wedding day was a blur for both of us. Neither of us got to see the decorated venue before the ceremony. Walking back down the aisle as husband and wife was our first chance to take in the beauty of what Lena had put together. Lena’s choice of furniture, lighting, flowers, and rental furniture transformed the oceanfront lawn at Olowalu into the most amazing shabby-chic paradise that we could have ever imagined. The venue, paired with her caterer, live musicians and DJ, worked in harmony to create the perfect event that went off without any issues. We have zero hesitation in recommending her services – we’re confident that Belle Destination Events is Maui’s best event planner.

Jessie at Belle Destination Weddings and Events was the first person we spoke to when beginning our search for Hawaii event planners. It was clear from our first conversation that she understood exactly what we were envisioning, what we valued and what kind of planning experience we were hoping for. She made excellent recommendations and gave us thoughtful advice and feedback. We didn't even bother looking elsewhere, we felt so comfortable and confident in Jessie's care. Throughout the entire process Jessie was professional, always available and above all, incredibly helpful. I often told her that I got the impression she cared as much about my wedding as I did! She was an excellent confidant, advisor and creative contributor too! Suffice to say our wedding was a dream come true - I have no words. My guests, however, had many words - so many of them wanted to tell me how blown away they were, several said it was the best party they've ever been to. The best part of it all was getting to enjoy every moment of that incredible day without a single worry. I couldn't be more grateful.

"Jane's attention to detail, exceptional communication, creativity, vision, and professionalism exceeded my expectations and made the destination wedding planning process stress-free."
Working with Jane Park and the Belle Destination Wedding & Events team was truly a highlight of my wedding weekend festivities in Maui. Jane's attention to detail, exceptional communication, creativity, vision, and professionalism exceeded my expectations and made the destination wedding planning process stress-free. Jane's vendor network included an amazing florist, photographer, caterer, officiant, and stylist. Jane shared the same love for planning my wedding, and I guarantee you won't be disappointed. Belle Destination Wedding & Events has my highest recommendation as a Maui wedding planner.

Once we made a decision on having a destination wedding I knew it was important for us to get a wedding planner. I did a lot of Googling and review reading (which I do for basically everything) and I luckily came across Belle Destination Events. It's scary paying large amounts of money to a person or business in which you haven't personally met but not once did I feel worried or did anything go wrong. Lena is the most organized person I have ever met in my entire life. I would email her (sometimes multiple emails a day) and she would always respond so quickly. She was also super good at helping make decisions and giving advice on things we were unsure about, which was so helpful! I never once throughout our entire wedding experience felt stressed. After over a year of planning our wedding with Lena I feel like we have made a great friend not just a wedding planner. I already miss emailing her everyday and will definitely be making a visit to her next time we are in Maui. People often times say wedding planners are extra money you don't necessarily need to spend but I couldn't recommend Belle enough! They are worth every penny we spent plus more! If you are planning on getting married I highly recommend contacting Belle Destination Events for your Hawaii wedding planner.

"We are a less-than-traditional couple, and Jessie helped us create a day that was incredibly beautiful, relaxed, personal and FUN!"
We were SO thrilled with Jessie Ellis and the whole team at Belle. With a bride who never really dreamed about/envisioned her day, and with a groom who could not possibly be more laid back, we were likely somewhat of a challenge, and Jessie did an incredible job at helping us create and execute a vision that reflected us perfectly. She worked closely with us from day one on every detail - from the big vendor decisions to the tablescape details, and much more. We are a less-than-traditional couple, and Jessie helped us create a day that was incredibly beautiful, relaxed, personal and FUN! Jessie is extremely organized, creative, and enthusiastic. She knows the industry and the options on the islands inside and out, and is simply lovely to be around. Weddings can get stressful, and Jessie does an amazing job at keeping everything calm and cool while juggling a million tiny details. Bottom line - worth every penny! We could not recommend Jessie and her team enough!

Belle is a world-class company that is run by the nicest people! These ladies put a lot of heart and time into everything they do! Jane was so incredible to work with. She is super organized and so on the ball. Our wedding day exceeded our expectations in every way possible, 100% due to the planning of Belle. Having a wedding planner was the best decision we made in the wedding process. It not only saved us a ton of time but it also allowed us to place our special day in the hands of people who are the experts and know all the right touches to make the day superb. If you are considering hiring Belle...definitely do it!! Our experience was a 10/10!

"Some of our guests told us our wedding was the best they've ever been to... others told us it was perfect...I know that it was my dream wedding."
Our best wedding investment was hiring Belle Destination Weddings and Events! Lena made the wedding planning process fun and totally stress free. She has great taste, creative ideas and helpful recommendations. When I first contacted Lena, I didn't have a super clear vision but I did my best to describe it, and sent inspiration from Pinterest, etc. She took that and created something that far exceeded my expectations. There were so many amazing details and everything came together beautifully. On the day of, my husband and I felt so pampered. We were able to relax and have an amazing day knowing Lena was on top of everything. We were busy dancing and didn't make time to try our desserts so Lena brought them back to our hotel while we went to our after party. Talk about going above and beyond! Some of our guests told us our wedding was the best they've ever been to... others told us it was perfect...I know that it was my dream wedding. :) I highly recommend Belle Destination Events!
