“When we were planning our destination wedding in Maui, we wanted someone who was both knowledgeable and experienced with private estates in Maui. Katy had the experience and relationships on the island, so we hired her for a day-of coordination package. She provided us with vendor referrals, a check-list of things we needed to take care of (the fun stuff like the food and desserts!) while she took care of the other details. All her help gave us peace of mind and was a major time-saver. She was very responsive and always at our finger-tips when we needed her, especially when we arrived on Maui. On the day of the wedding, I did not have to worry about a single thing as Katy was always three steps ahead of me. I was able to really relax and enjoy the time with family and friends. We’re SO glad we hired Katy to help with our wedding – it was definitely the best investment we made!”

“We hired VOWS to help us plan our wedding in Maui. We could tell immediately that Katy was going to be able to handle the job. She had the right mixture of experience and confidence that we felt was needed. We flew to Maui about 5 months before to do some vendor selection and Katy had everything planned out perfectly. We only met with reputable vendors who knew the importance of the event we were planning. The total timeline for the planning was approximately 8 months and Katy kept everything on track which relieved so much stress for us. The food, the décor, the ceremony, the music, just every aspect went perfectly. Katy and her assistant were there for the full wedding day and made sure that nothing went wrong (and if it did, us grooms didn’t hear about it!). I really felt like Katy cared about us having the best day possible. I was trepidatious about spending the money for a planner when we were already spending quite a bit of money on a destination wedding, but it was unbelievably worth it. All you need to know is if you want to get married on Maui, call Katy to do your planning and trust that you’re getting an experienced professional who knows the island and who knows weddings.

“If you’re planning a wedding on Maui and you’re hoping for a wedding planner with a mainland work ethic… Katy Roberts is your gal! She is from the Kirkland/Seattle area & lives on Maui. She is classy, warm and fun to work with. She is very plugged into the Maui wedding scene! Katy dazzled us with her organization and responsiveness. Once I saw her detailed timeline for the day of the wedding I knew everything was going to be just fine. She went above and beyond to make sure that our wedding day at Olowalu Plantation House ran smoothly. She never looked down upon our desire to review multiple bids and she was able to get us a deal with one vendor that we simply would not have been able to get without her! Katy made it easy for me to visualize by taking a video of the property (which she went out of her way to do on a holiday). She is just that kind of wedding planner who goes the extra mile to make sure her clients are comfortable and enjoying the whole process. We will never forget our wedding day. It was a dream come true and we owe many thanks to Katy Roberts – wedding planner extraordinaire!”

“We came across Katy and VOWS when we were hopelessly looking for someone to help us, not only have a wedding in Maui but also with a vision in mind. So many wedding planners on the Island are your cookie cutter “everyone fits in a box” where they have the same three bouquets to pick from and the same cakes to pick from. Then when we would call and speak to them about some of our ideas, it was always “Oh no we can’t do that” or ” That’s not possible”. Then we came across one lady who mentioned Katy with VOWS. From our first conversation, she was a CAN DO type of person. Any little thing we wanted, no matter how small, she found a way to make it happen. She had a way of calming me down in the crazy frantic last six months of our planning. She and her staff made our wedding day truly seamless and honestly PERFECT. Katy is the type of person that commands respect from everyone she works with. It’s truly amazing. All while being a good listener and very compassionate to your every need. We were so lucky we found her. She truly was the mastermind into putting our dreams into reality. We could have never done it without her. If you want to make your special day truly special, put your money on Katy and VOWS. You won’t regret it.
