My wedding was a dream that became a reality thanks to modern elopement and especially Meaghan. We had about 5 months to plan a wedding, and I trusted Meaghan implicitly. She delivered something more than we could have ever imagined. It was stress free from start to end. The whole process was amazing and I cannot recommend her or the group enough. Thank you again for all that you did! You are truly talented and it couldn't have been more beautiful.


Modern Elopement was amazing. My husband and I were looking to do something intimate and cost effective without sacrificing style. Kayleigh helped us throughout the whole process and we could not have asked for a better experience. Most elopement packages are cheesy so when I found modern elopement online I knew they were the right fit. We had the ceremony at Na Aina Kai Botanical Gardens in Kauai in the forest area which was magical. Our photos were done by June which came out beautifully and she was so fun and made us feel comfortable. We ended the night with Dinner at the St Regis and was the best wedding dinner/meal I've ever had. Though it is a package deal they do offer areas in which you can customize, but it does cost more. We spent more than other package deals that we were looking at in the area, but we definitely got what we paid for and it was still a 1/4 of the price of a larger wedding. If you are contemplating going with modern elopement, do it, you will not be disappointed.



We planned our destination wedding in Kauai with Modern Elopement.  We had never been to the island before and trusted Modern Elopement on everything.  It was stress free and Kayleigh, my wedding planner, was by my side the whole time.  We had a fantastic elopement; it was just wonderful, like in a fairytale!  Every detail was perfect!  They also work with great vendors so everything was very elegant, sophisticated and special.  I can't think of one thing that I would have liked to be different.  Everything was PERFECT!


Nick and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day - you truly captured us as a couple.  Coming from Australia, we didn't quite know how to go about organizing a wedding overseas.  From the moment we spoke with you, you guys put us at ease.  We were confident that you would create an experience beyond anything that we could have dreamed of!  All three of you worked tirelessly for us, and we are very grateful.  Thank you for making the whole experience so fun, and thank you for your professionalism and abundant creativity!



5 star experience; Kayleigh and the team were AMAZING!!

We were both based in Japan while organizing the wedding and were nervous on how to organize an overseas wedding.  Our minds were quickly put at ease when Modern Elopement provided a number of options and started supporting us in putting a plan together.  The wedding day was a resounding success.  The vendors, set up, support of bilingual guests, and location were spectacular and we had an unforgettable day!  We would highly recommend Modern Elopement for anyone looking to get married in Hawaii.


Thank you so much for making our wedding day exactly what I dreamed of.  It was intimate, romantic and, of course, absolutely gorgeous!  The flowers and decor could not have been more perfect.  My memories of this day will be absolutely flawless.  I truly appreciate all of the effort and planning that went into making our day so wonderful!


The ladies at Modern Elopement put me at ease from our first phone conversation. Living in TX but dreaming of a Hawaiian wedding, planning was getting VERY difficult and I almost gave up until I stumbled upon one of their weddings on Pinterest. Not only did they work with AMAZING vendors, they are so flexible to make the day 100% YOURS. They have the process down to a science (but a fun science) of options for you to choose from that are all beautiful! The Elopement package doesn't just have to be for you and your hubby - you can also have an intimate number of guests which is exactly what we were looking for. My favorite thing about ME was the ladies were honest and very knowledgeable about the Islands. They will plan any add-ons to your ceremony that you could possibly desire and also suggest great ideas for dinner & outings at no charge. Upon arriving in the Islands, I wasn't even stressed because the team had been so great at communicating with emails/calls/pictures/etc. that I had full trust that the wedding day would be amazing and it was. My friends and family that could not attend the wedding were amazed at our pictures and the stress-free option we chose --- we continue to recommend this idea to everyone!


We found Modern Elopement last year through Google. We read their reviews and we were instantly given a feeling of security that we would be looked after with all our needs, especially after we spoke to Morgan. As we began our planning stages, the process was made easy and detailed which put us at ease considering we didn't have the luxury of visiting the sites physically. We had to put our full trust in our wedding concierge Jennifer and she didn't let us down. When we arrived in Hawaii for the big day we had a sense of excitement to see how our many months of planning would come together. We continually astounded by the level of elegance from the private limousine who transported our wedding party and guest to the wedding venue, once arriving at the venue the small unmistakable finishing touches is what blew us away from the cold refreshments to the harpist playing our song all of these little moments have made our wedding day an unforgettable experience far exceeding our wildest expectations. We would recommend everyone wanting to elope in Hawaii to seek Modern Elopement to help plan and organise their wedding, their local knowledge and expert advice will assure that your special day will be your dream day.




I write to thank you for making our wedding day everything we dreamed of.  Kayleigh was great leading to and throughout the day.  Our flowers were spectacular, the rental company got everything we needed to the site on time, and the private chef was awesome! I can't tell you how impressed we were with this act of kindness and professionalism.  That's really the way to treat your clients and while it was not necessary for us, we so appreciated and enjoyed it!

As a family law attorney, people expect a high level of performance from me.  Details matter!  Being so attuned to details oftentimes leaves me disappointed in the quality of service I receive.  But not from you all!  Without a lot of fuss, or unnecessary communication, Modern Elopement wasable to take our wedding vision and make it a reality.  I never once worried that things wouldn't be as I hoped.  And, I was calm and happy on my wedding day.




Stress-free! That is the easiest way to describe hiring Modern Elopements/Moana Events as my Hawaiian wedding planners. Kayleigh handled everything through email quickly and efficiently, which is so helpful with the time change between Chicago and Hawaii, especially while I am working full-time and running a busy household. She was so sweet and had a very calming and confident demeanor when we finally met on my wedding day. The musician and photographer they hired for our ceremony were wonderful to work with and received a ton of compliments from our guests. Thank you Kayleigh, Morgan and the rest of your great team for planning a truly magical day for JT and myself!!



What a perfect day it was!! We wish we could do it over and over again. You were incredible in helping us plan our big day. We are so glad it was you that was by our side. Thank you also for saving my dress.
