Meet Kamalani

Hey there lovely couples! My name is Kamalani and I'm the owner of Island Wedding Memories where we’re focused on making your special day as magical and memorable as possible.

I'm a mother to two of the most adorable and energetic kids you'll ever meet - my daughter Lilia, (2.5 years old) and my son La’akea(1 year old). They are my biggest inspiration and greatest joy in life. They bring so much love and happiness into my life every day while I'm learning new things along the way. My kids are my motivation to be the best version of myself, and they remind me daily of the magic and beauty of love and family. 

I've always been a creative soul, and I've always had a passion for making people happy. I love tending to the little details that will make your dream wedding come to life. My goal is to help couples like you create the wedding of your dreams, one that's filled with love, joy, and all the little touches that make it uniquely yours.

Whether you're looking for a full-service planning experience or just need some guidance and support along the way, my team and I are here to help you every step of the way. From choosing the perfect venue and designing your dream décor to coordinating with vendors and creating a flawless timeline, we've got you covered.

So, what are you waiting for? Let's create some magic together! Contact today to schedule a consultation and let's make your wedding dreams come true.

Meet Kim

Aloha, I am Kim, event planner & lead photographer for Aihara Visuals Photography. I have lived on the island of Maui with my family for 30 years. I am originally from California but I definitely feel that Maui is home after all these years. I have an awesome family, husband Nate (we have been married 27 years!), 2 handsome boys, Nakana (26) & Nakoa (20), a beautiful daughter-in-law Kamalani, my pride and joy.. grand daughter Lilia (2.5) and a grandson La'akea (1), French Bulldogs Dexter & Ozzy, and last but not least, two grey kitten brothers named Disco & Jazz.


I started in the wedding industry here on Maui 16 years ago as a wedding photographer, photographing countless events over the years. Having an eye for detail, timing and working closely with so many wonderful vendors & venues on the island, I wanted to share my insights with new couples planning relaxed, fun, beautiful and unique events. It's been so much fun helping couples live out their dream day in a tropical paradise.
