Cherise and her beautiful daughter Angele were amazing! I will definitely recommend Cherises services to plan, and execute any wedding. I helped my daughter and her fiancé plan their wedding in Maui long distance from Coronado and from the first time iI spoke to Cherise onthe phone I loved her. She is prompt in responding to phone calls and emails and texts and always with the best attitude. She is very efficient and always suggests great ideas and suggests ways to save money if she feels from experience things aren’t necessary. She suggested placement of LOVE sign by dance floor and it was a great idea because otherwise we would not have seen it and enjoyed it. She also suggested a clear tent because in Maui you never know with the weather and the clear tent enhanced the decor and was perfect because no leaves fell on table and we had the peace of mind of knowing that if it rained or was windy we were protected. Her demeanor is calm and soothing. She is very sweet and Super efficient. I didn’t worry about one thing during the ceremony, cocktails or reception. Nor did Bride and Groom. She was there with her daughter until the very end and made sure everyone got taxis back to their destinations. Most important, she kept the bride calm at all times because she doesn’t impose, she just delivers and works with your ideas. Thank you so much Cherise and Angele!!! ~ Francesca & John 3-20-16

I chose cherise as my wedding planner based on other peoples reviews and I am glad I did. I was the most unstressed bride ever. I am very indecisive and a procrastinator. She would always reply back within a timely manner. I would email her pictures and special requests of what I wanted. Cherise would then find the perfect match from all the vendors that she works. There were a few times where I had to cut the cost on certain things and she made it work. Even the venue I had originally wanted was booked for the year so she suggested another venue based on what I had wanted and it was better than my original plan. On the day of, I had my dream wedding that I will always remember. I could not have done this without her. ~ Grace & Samuel 9-6-16

You will have a perfect wedding with Cherise as your planner! Planning a destination wedding in Maui from Nevada was not easy. You have to completely trust in your planner. Cherise has been doing this for years and has established wonderful vendor contacts. Researching a wedding planner and a venue was about as much work as I wanted to do! Cherise had recommendations for every aspect of my wedding. It was so easy! Cherise had no problem staying within budget and kept a detailed spreadsheet of all my charges that I could easily understand. I relied on her to make my wedding look like the pictures I sent her. It really was more perfect than I ever could have imagined! The day of the wedding she keeps you on time and always makes sure you are doing alright. Most planners charge 20% for every service you book through them. Cherise charges a flat rate for her wedding planning. This will save you money. Cherise will save you from pulling your hair out with stress. You will not go wrong with her as your planner. ~ Aimee & Michael 3-20-14

I had an amazing experience working with The Perfect Wedding Maui/ Cherise and I would highly recommend her to anyone thinking of planning a destination wedding in Maui! I am a little type A and an extremely detail-oriented perfectionist, so I had high expectations from our wedding coordinator. I needed someone very organized and who pays attention to the details as much as I do and whom I could fully trust to execute my vision for our wedding day. From the minute I began exchanging emails with Cherise to our first meeting, it was clear that she is one of the most organized individuals I have ever met. She had checklists for every detail. Throughout the year of planning, she was incredibly responsive to my COUNTLESS e-mails. Every little thing I asked her about was answered as if it were of the utmost importance. She never told me that it couldn’t be done. She moved heaven and earth for us to get what we wanted. All of her recommendations were spot on for our budget and personal style and it truly showed on the day of the wedding.  Speaking about the wedding – it was spectacular! Cherise really understood our vision and she nailed it! On the day of the wedding she was completely on top of everything and literally took care of EVERYTHING – I did not have to worry about any details, other than having fun! She was at the wedding the entire day and made sure everything went smoothly. She was everywhere helping in every department and she did a spectacular job! Every detail was executed the way I had envisioned it in my head or even better. Our wedding day was perfect, magical and went by way too fast! I can’t say enough good things about Cherise. She made our dream day come true. She is a phenomenal wedding planner and coordinator and this review hardly does her justice. If we were to do it all over again, I would call Cherise again in a heartbeat. Thank you SO MUCH Cherise for executing our wedding and making it such an unforgettable day! You are truly THE BEST!! ~ Tatyana & Aaron 7-11-15

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% ~ Dana & Kurt 8-29-15

Cherise is absolutely amazing. Planning a destination wedding can be super stressful because you are not there to actually meet the vendors, taste the food, pick the flowers, etc. Cherise puts all you worries at ease with her “get it done” attitude, combined with her gentle demeanor. When we arrived the day of our wedding, it was exactly how I envisioned it. We had planned everything for almost a year prior, and all I had done was send her pictures of my vision….and she made it come to life! I can be pretty picky too….and Cherise nailed it! She is such a genuine person, who really cares about your big day. This isn’t about a paycheck for her…you can tell this is her real passion. I loved working with Cherise and would highly recommend her to any bride-to-be. ~ Brianna & Brandon 7-6-16

Cherise was an absolute dream to work with! Her demeanor is very calm and collected. I never once felt her stress over anything. We hired Cherise after firing our previous wedding planner and she was a joy from the beginning. I was freaking out because I was worried she already took on a wedding on our date, but come to find out, she doesn’t take “special” dates. But since we had a bunch of vendors already booked for our 12-12-12 wedding, she graciously took on our wedding. I remember the day of the wedding being stress-free! I sat on the lanai getting my hair and makeup done watching everything come together, thanks to Cherise. She saw my vision perfectly. All I had to do was give her my stuff and tell her where they all went. I cannot say enough about Cherise. She was so great. My husband and I loved working with her and she really knows what she is doing. She was always quick to respond with emails, even setting up “vacation” notices when she would be away for a few days (which I greatly appreciated), and she was easily reachable by text/cell phone for emergencies–not that I had any! Even though I knew she was there on our wedding day working her butt off, I never once noticed her! She was like a ninja and I loved that! Not at all overbearing just so sweet and kind. Thank you, Cherise! ~ Diana & Armando 12-12-12

Cherise gets the highest score, because she was responsible for putting most of the team together. She would have to be the best decision we made with planning the wedding. She is incredibly lovely and easy to talk to. Her response time was quick and she was always there toanswer any questions we had. My husband (still feels weird to say) did most of the planning with her and he cannot say enough nice things about her. I was not the bride who had envisioned her wedding day since she was little and thus Cherise walked us through all the steps and reminded us of all the details we hadn’t thought of. She was never pushy, gave us a list of vendors to choose from and always worked with any ideas/decisions we threw at her. We had a few vendors cancel shortly before the wedding and she seamlessly replaced them with excellent vendors without worrying us. The day of she was sweet and funny and reassuring. She kept things running smoothly in the background. She is worth many times more than what she charges. She was AMAZING. Honestly, I could go on, but this post would just be way too long. ~ Tanya & Lincoln 2-5-12
