Meet Malia Renee

Owner & Lead Planner

It all began at age 7, setting the table for Thanksgiving, carefully positioning flatware to handcrafting place cards. I have always loved all of life's celebrations and wanted to live in the joy of those memories. 

Being a type-A organizer with an appreciation for creative beauty and a servant's heart, I inevitably married my skill and passion into my dream career! Here we are, years later, where I have come to realize that perfection lives in life's little moments. 

From opening a grand curtain for a bride on her wedding day to opening my front door - margarita in hand - to greet friends; I strive to execute seamless events so that you can appreciate those little moments too. 

Aloha, Malia

Code of Living
