“…our wedding day was truly not what I expected – it was calm, and filled with love and more fun than I could have ever imagined and even as I am writing these words my eyes are welling up with tears. I cannot even begin to describe what that day meant to us and I am just so filled with gratitude toward everyone on our team and friends and family. It was truly the absolute PERFECT experience and one that I will hold so dear and cherish forever! It is amazing how some of the things that I was so worried about ended up being perfect as they were in the end J – the sign in book didn’t come in time, I didn’t end up picking out the music personally and DJ Amara was just incredible, my rehearsal dinner dress didn’t come in time and my girlfriend had just the right outfit to lend me, I got a cold and ended up discovering the amazing things acupuncture can do, I forgot my bouquet….ALLLLLL just amazing stories I can now share! My advice to brides, especially the crazy, OCD ones like me – don’t sweat the small stuff and don’t kill yourself trying to make sure everything is perfect! Print labels for your invitations instead of handwriting them. Send your DJ your Spotify list so they know what you like. If you have an amazing chef, they will provide an amazing menu. And FOLLOW THE GUIDANCE OF YOUR WEDDING PLANNER because Marlene knows what’s up!
Thank you, thank you, thank you a million times for this special memory Marlene. You have the demeanor of a kitten and the work ethic of a lioness – you are so sweet but you get things done and this is a very unique trait to be admired.
You will always hold a very special place in my heart!

“Marlene is amazing and her calm demeanor and attitude is exactly what two people need when planning a wedding. She is incredibly detailed and thorough throughout the whole process, making sure everyone is happy and aligned…Her local contacts and vast knowledge of the island make her the perfect resource to hire. When we approached the wedding festivities…Marlene ensured us not to worry and that everything was handled. Boy oh boy, is that understatement. The entire event was perfect, one that we will cherish for the rest of our lives!”
Lynsey + Matt (Canada)
“Marlene came to us very highly recommended from the events coordinator at our wedding venue — in fact – her words were, Marlene is the only person I will work with and now I know why! …Marlene had a very organized and systematic approach to our meetings that balanced between being highly productive (and fun!) while ensuring we didn’t feel overwhelmed…which brings me to another amazing thing about Marlene – she knows absolutely everyone in the industry! Her level of contacts and relationships with the wedding and event community is unparalleled. It is a pretty amazing thing to witness the level of respect and love the people of Kauai have for her. And it is totally based on her reputation and commitment to putting on amazing events for her clients!”

“For anyone looking for an amazing wedding planner I would recommend Marlene Mira from Mira Mira Events…
I live overseas in Tokyo and prior to our wedding I’ve never been to Kauai. I did some extensive research and I found Marlene on Yelp. From the first few minutes of talking with her I knew immediately I wanted to work with her. She’s warm, professional and extremely meticulous. I am very detailed-oriented and I felt relieved that Marlene was as meticulous if not more than I…On the day of the wedding – I was blown away.”
Caely + Toby (France)
“Marlene took all the stress out of our wedding. Planning a wedding in Hawaii from France was easy with her help! She was professional, gracious, calm and caring throughout the entire process. Most importantly – she never once stressed me out, to the contrary: she was a stress blocker! Or perhaps even more important than that — she is clearly passionate and enthusiastic about her job.”

Our wedding day and the days leading up to and after it were unforgettable. Kauai is such a beautiful paradise that it is hard not to have an unforgettable time there, but our fond wedding memories are all thanks to Marlene and her fabulous team! We didn’t lift a finger; we just enjoyed thinking about how perfect everything was! The day truly exceeded our expectations from the ceremony, to the food, right down to the end of the evening entertainment.

I am an event planner by profession, so I had specific expectations about planning and execution. Marlene is a true partner. She was a pleasure to work with and has great ideas and experience. I highly recommend Marlene Mira!

Marlene blew our expectations out of the water, attending to our every need, keeping us on schedule, and very importantly helped to keep my stress levels under control. You can pay anyone to help you organize your wedding, but it’s the special touches that Marlene brought with her winning personality, local knowledge and artistry that separates her from the pack!

Marlene is a rare combination of creative confidante and the epitome of professionalism. She had a brilliant idea for each of the many unique elements we enlisted her help with. And when a florist I found on my own flaked at the very last minute, Marlene brought in her trusted vendor without missing a beat.
