What people are saying
Cherise came highly recommended to me and my new husband by a friend. We are so happy we decided to go with her because she made our wedding day absolutely perfect! Prior to officially choosing Cherise as our wedding planner, we spoke with her on the phone just to chat about what our wedding vision was. After we got off the phone, my husband and I both agreed simultaneously that we wanted her as our wedding planner! She was very knowledgeable on the phone and answered our many questions. We were planning our wedding from California, so our planning was done via phone calls and emails. She is just so patient, kind, and sweet -- it is such a pleasure to work with her! She is very responsible and detail-oriented as well as responsive to emails and text messages, which is wonderful, because I can get stressed out easily, but when she responds, it is very thorough and prompt. She is also flexible and accommodating, which is really great. Sometimes I would question something, such as why was the cake cutting scheduled so early right after the bridge/groom entrance, shouldn't it be after dinner? She explained it was because it would be better for pictures with the sun still up at that time, but no problem if we wanted to move it to a later time. We stuck with her suggestion. I am so grateful we had Cherise to help us through our very special day. She definitely knows what she's doing and I would highly, highly recommend her. Within a couple of days after my wedding, I've already recommended Cherise to a couple of friends! I cannot emphasize enough how perfect our wedding day was, which was only a couple of weeks ago. Everyone keeps talking about how amazing our wedding was. Thank you, Cherise! We love you! P.S. Cherise deserves way more than 5 stars!
If anyone is looking to get married in Maui we would highly recommend this company! There was no way we could have pulled this off without Cherise. Everything from the location down to the cake was perfect! It was so nice to have everything run so smoothly and professionally on such an important day. Any fees we were made aware of well in advance with no unexpected or hidden fees. Everyone Cherise recommended were just as good and professional as The Perfect Wedding. It seemed like no matter what we wanted to do for this wedding, all we had to do was tell Cherise and she made it happen! The whole event went off without a hitch! We can't say enough good things about Cherise and The Perfect Wedding. The Perfect Wedding is just that. Perfect! Thank you so much Cherise!
Our wedding was PERFECT. We are so glad we had a wedding planner, and we are most grateful that our wedding planner was Cherise!! We can't imagine anyone else who could've done as amazing of a job as Cherise, and here is why: 1. Her organization is impeccable, she remembers every detail I have her, the ones that I don't even remember I had mentioned, she somehow knew. 2. Everyone loves her. All the vendors love her. This is so important because you want everyone to be happy working for your big day, and they were because of Cherise. Even all my guests were in love with her and her daughters because they all enjoyed themselves thoroughly, and they knew all of this is made possible because of her. 3. We were able to save so much money because of her. No, you do not save money planning your own wedding. Cherise was able to work with our wonderful vendors and negotiate great prices. 4. We saved so much time and energy. I barely had to do any work because Cherise took care of almost everything. Up until a month before the wedding, I didn't feel like I was planning for a wedding at all. 5. She is worth so much more than how much she charges. We did our research, many wedding planner charge additional fee /a percentage for booking vendors. She charges a flat fee, and did so much more. 6. For those brides who are type A, wants everything exactly the way you want it, and want to go through each vendor individually to get that accomplished. I say trust Cherise, let her know what you want, she will get you what you want without you having to upset any of your vendors. And please, listen to what she says. You will be beyond satisfied once you see the results and you won't regret having listened to her. Thank you so much Cherise. Our guests loved our wedding. They say that this was truly a perfect wedding, and the most fun wedding they have ever attended. We owe it all to Cherise. Please, consider a wedding planner if you are having your wedding in Maui, and choose Cherise!!
We recently worked with Cherise on our January wedding. She is the best, and we wouldn’t have had such a wonderful wedding without her! She was very responsive, knowledgeable, and made our lives so easy, planning a destination wedding (we came from Anchorage). I shared our vision of the ceremony and reception, and what she put together was better than we could have dreamed. She had excellent suggestions for location, venders, makeup and hair, local services for dress pressing and other small details, and seamlessly booked most things for us. We wanted our wedding a little different (no dance), and Cherise had a wonderful suggestion of more of a dinner-party feel, with 5-6 courses; the chef introduced each meal, and we had wine/beer pairings with each course. She also had suggestions to save money; for example, we had flowers on our ceremony arch that then decorated the tables for the meal. The wedding day was so much fun; she supervised set-up and decorations, as well as clean-up. We only had to show up and get married! The day was stress-free, and fun, most importantly. Cherise is a sweet person, on top of her excellent services, and I couldn’t recommend anyone more. Book her! You won’t regret it! (Also, she is very reasonably priced, making this a no-brainer!)
If you are planning a special event on Maui, I would highly recommend calling Cherise before making any other arrangements. Cherise has been an integral part of two weddings in my family, so this is a double thumbs up review. My sister was married in Maui in 2014, and Cherise was her wedding coordinator. After watching the beautifully orchestrated ceremony and reception, I knew exactly who to call for our special day. My wife and I live almost 5,000 miles from Maui, so it was so important to have Cherise there to guide us and provide local knowledge. She helped us select vendors and kept us on track with our budget. A wedding comes with a LOT of unknowns, and Cherise was always there to walk us through the details and give us solid advice. We planned a trip to Maui five months before the wedding, and Cherise was there to meet us. She helped us arrange visits with the wedding venue, the florist, the make-up artist, and the cake experts. Not only did she set up the appointments, she was there with us every step of the way to help us make the important decisions that made our wedding so special. When we arrived on Maui for the wedding, Cherise was there to help us sort out the last minute details. Having someone there to keep everything moving forward is critical to the event running smoothly. The wedding day was incredible. Cherise has the ability to make everything happen while presenting a calm and collected appearance. The entire day ran on time and nothing got lost in the mix. She was always two steps ahead and she made sure that things were running smoothly. Cherise was a master at making sure that we were able to enjoy our wedding day. She made sure that we had time to eat and relax. Many friends say that their wedding day was a blur...we maintain that we really were able to experience every detail. This is a testament to the work that Cherise was doing behind the scenes.
Cherise Shulman, owner of The Perfect Wedding, is fantastic and did an incredible job on our wedding in Maui! I live in Canada, so deciding on hiring a wedding planner for our destination wedding was a no brainer. My husband found Cherise, and I’m so grateful he did. Cherise was a joy to work with for so many reasons. She is a pro at what she does and made planning a destination wedding so much fun. She had great advice from A-Z, but always let us decide in the end what was best suited for us. She was very organized and always three step ahead of me! My wedding was literally “The Perfect Wedding” and my family and friends still talk about it. Everyone kept telling me it was the most beautiful and romantic wedding they had ever attended! Cherise has many years of experience in the wedding industry. She has developed such great relationships with other vendors in Maui, and they love working with her. My florist went above and beyond because of that relationship. We chose to not splurge on everything and anything, and I really appreciated that Cherise worked with our budget. I was able to have a beautiful wedding but not break the bank account that badly :) I trusted Cherise and our wedding was an absolute dream come true. My vision became a reality on my wedding day, and I have Cherise to thank for that. I was blown away when I saw how everything came together. She allowed me to be stress-free the entire day and this was because of Cherise’s laid back but also very organized approach. Cherise was a dream to work with, and I would recommend her services 100%
I cannot say enough good things about Cherise. Choosing her as our wedding coordinator was one of the best decisions we made for the wedding. During the planning process, she was informative, quick to respond, and so friendly and easy to talk to. She was never pushy and gave us many recommendations for great vendors. She worked closely with my husband (I was the ideas side and he was the implementer) and he just thought she was fabulous. She reminded us of the small details we just didn't think of, and when a two of our vendors had to back out she seamlessly replaced them without stressing us out (and they were fabulous!) As for the day of the wedding, everything went so smoothly that I completely forgot about all the details and just enjoyed the day and our friends and family. I wholeheartedly recommend Cherise and The Perfect Wedding Maui. She is amazing.
