My husband and I worked with Marlene Mira to plan our Kauai wedding. We live in San Francisco and needed a local planner to help with logistics and fine details for our destination wedding.
It was a pleasure working with Marlene! I am an event planner by profession, so I had specific expectations about planning and execution. Marlene is a true partner. She truly cared about us, and genuinely desired to create a very special experience for us and our guests. She was thoughtful and always went above and beyond. One example that displays her partnership is regarding our wedding venue.
We chose a venue that had never accommodated the large number of guests (approx. 70) we expected would attend. Also, we did not see the venue in person when we decided to secure it. Marlene helped us visualize the space with photos and a hand-drawn floor plan. She went to the venue to personally measure the space and then sketched it. This really helped us feel confident about the venue space. It also confirmed that Marlene was the right partner to create our very special day.
I know our wedding was THE biggest and had the most complex requirements for the venue. She took on this challenge with enthusiasm and confidence. We had the ceremony in the same place as the reception. This meant we had to move our guests to the beach for a cocktail party while Marlene flipped the space. She managed the tear-down of the ceremony and set-up the dinner reception tables – including flowers, customized seating cards, table assignments and menus – the dance floor and DJ, and the bar in a relatively short period of time. It worked out perfectly! Marlene did a fabulous job. She thoughtfully planned the details and many logistical implications, and then ensured she had the staff to execute.
There are just a couple examples of Marlene’s true partnership and willingness to go the extra mile to create a perfect wedding. She was a pleasure to work with and has great ideas and experience. I highly recommend Marlene Mira!
