About Us

Christy Taketa, owner of In Bloom Floral, is a master of details. Not a surprise, when you consider her professional background as personal assistant and company administrator in the high-end construction, medical and hospitality sales industries.

While capable of commanding a construction crew, Christy’s polished demeanor and designer eye makes her a popular wedding coordinator.

“I’ve been coordinating weddings and special events on Maui and Oahu for over six years,” says Christy. “And each time I arrange a centerpiece or design a bridal bouquet I’m still awed by the significance and symbolical beauty of the flowers.”

Her “portfolio of petals” includes elaborate, over-the-top ensembles to sweet boutonnières. Since 2008 she has been the exclusive floral sponsor for the Shane Victorino Celebrity Golf Tournament, and has put her special touch on everything from baby luaus to celebrity nuptials.

Christy also has European pastry training from the California Culinary Academy. “Baking is my secret love,” says Christy. This gives her an edge over other wedding coordinators-- should an “accident” happen to your wedding cake in transport or at the event, Christy is uniquely qualified to restore and remedy the problem. This “Maui Martha Stewart” also cooks, sews, crafts, and assembles gift baskets .

Christy was born in and raised in Wailuku, Maui . She knows the people, places and resources available island wide. Need a smooth Dj, an affordable videographer or a guitar soloist? She’s got their number. Need an exact shade of apple green ribbon, a particular favorite candy in bulk for the candy buffet or that secluded, semi-shady, white sandy beach for the ceremony? She knows where to go!


 

“I am forever grateful for [Christy] because if it weren’t for her, our wedding wouldn’t have been as beautiful and perfect as it was.  Christy always responded to my emails, phone messages and texts promptly.  She knows how to keep a bride happy and she knows how to keep within a couples’ budget.  Fabulous job, Christy!  We loved our wedding, our flowers, and our cake too!!! You are the BEST!” ---Storm, California.

"She knew what would be in season for my wedding and helped me to make an informed decision for my bouquets and table arrangements. All the items were exquisite and I got so many compliments. Everything turned out perfect, I couldn't have asked for anything else!" -- Britni, Maui, Hawaii
