Branden Sequeira, our Photographer made our wedding pictures one thing during the day that I didn't have to stress about

Hi Branden,
Just wanted to say thank you so much for everything! ! I really really appreciated that you came early and stayed late,  and checked out the venue  for the best picture locations and let me go over picture ideas with you. I liked that you listened and incorporated my ideas and thoughts into the pictures, payed attention to details and that we were able to take more pictures than I thought. Thank you so much for all of your picture suggestions (as well as taking pictures that I wanted without me having to ask)! I totally would have missed out on some shots I wanted if you didn't suggest certain things!  I am so grateful that you tried your best to get all of the shots that I wanted and were creative and took pictures that you knew would look amazing, as well as help direct myself and everyone so that we would all look wonderful. You really took your time and made sure everyone's eyes were open for all of the pictures, and that all of the pictures had the correct lighting and helped us with posing. Thank you for everything else that I forgot to mention that you did to help the day run smoothly. You were truly wonderful and patient with letting us take more pictures than we were supposed to, and for letting my paparazzi follow me around (and sometimes be in your space) to help me with positions/posing/pictures needed. You just put everyone at ease for all of the pictures and everyone thought you were great and genuinely kind and wonderul and did a really great job with getting all of the pictures. I just wanted to let you know that you were truly appreciated and you made our wedding pictures one thing during the day that I didn't have to stress about. You were really thoughtful with the placement of everyone and knew how to place me and Morgan so that we would look our best - since we are the same height and all, and were really great with everything and everyone there! You really went above and beyond and I am so thankful! The pictures are great because you were very creative and took your time even though we were super short on time haha. Thanks so much!

Thank you for your incredible talents

Rest assured your special day is in the best hands possible--this is only part of my thank you letter: When my husband proposed over 10 years ago, we knew it'd be a destination wedding. Having worked for a wedding photographer, I've seen some amazing work & some pretty tragic work. All I wanted was to get married somewhere hot & have our special day captured by someone whose style & skills would exceed my very high expectations. It's not just anyone who can transform the memories in your heart & head into something tangible that takes you right back to that moment in time! As soon as I saw Gordon Nash's work, A Paradise Dream Wedding, I knew we had to have him! We booked immediately & 6 months later we were wed by the illustrious Reverend Tino on beautiful Makena Cove Beach. The entire process was stress-free: we just had to get our wedding license a few days before, get ready & show up. It was awesome! So many people said our images were 'surreal' & 'like a postcard' & some even accused us of having a fake backdrop! We planned to come back & renew our vows for our 10-year anniversary. Being a Type-A personality & a bit of a perfectionist/control freak, I contacted the fabulous Jayanne Jefferys, the Wedding Coordinator, about 18 months prior as I had to have everything the same. Jayanne was awesome: on the ball, very accommodating with requests, knowledgeable & always upbeat & positive--I loved getting her voicemails as they radiated the spirit of aloha. Fast-forward 10 years to us, our 3 kids, most of our guests who attended our first wedding, Gordon Nash & Reverend Tino--all there to witness our vow renewal. This time around was as stress-free as it can be with 3 small kids & our ceremony a little more lighthearted (I may have said 'for richer or for richer')! Thank you for your incredible talents that made our family's special day unforgettable & for the stunning images we've shared with our loved ones who were unable to be with us. You can't put a price tag on memories & these will be treasured by our family for years to come.  Thank you Donna and John

Everyone went above and beyond to make our special day absolutely perfect!

When my husband and I first decided we wanted a destination wedding, we had no idea where to turn or even where to start. Internet searches eventually led us to Maui. There were a number of wedding planners on the island that all seemed to offer similar services. A Paradise Dream Wedding’s amazing pictures and great reviews are what initially stood out. After talking with Jayanne, the Wedding Coordinator, we were confident A Paradise Dream Wedding was it for us. Not only did Jayanne help plan our wedding, she gave the best travel advice and recommended some of the yummiest restaurants. She even called the evening before we left for Maui to go over last minute wedding and travel details. (And to make sure I wasn’t freaking out) ☺ 

The morning of the wedding, our Hair/Makeup stylist Caroline came to our room. I had a couple pictures of what I wanted done and Caroline did exactly that. Not to toot my our horn, but I looked absolutely stunning thanks to her :) When we arrived at The Cove for the ceremony, our onsite person Shena, photographer Arien Sherman, and videographer Brian were there to greet us. Shena was the absolute best moral support for the ceremony. I was a nervous wreck and she knew exactly what to say to calm me down. I couldn’t have asked for a better support person!!

I’ve heard horror stories of disaster wedding photos so I couldn’t help but feel anxious about how our photos and video would turn out. But let me just say, WOW what amazing work they do! I’ve never been very photogenic, but Arien captured so many beautiful shots! And Brian did a beautiful video. Family and friends were blown away by how beautiful our photos and wedding video turned out. 

Our officiator was Robert "Kuya", and he was the sweetest!! Our vows and everything he had to say were so genuine and straight from the heart. Robert was the perfect person to lead our ceremony! His passion made us even more excited about our future and the years to come. By the end I wanted to shrink him into a miniature size and take him home with us ☺ I couldn’t be happier we chose Paradise Dream. Everyone went above and beyond to make our special day absolutely perfect!  Thank you Candace and Paul

Thank you again, Jayanne, and all of your staff for making our day so incredibly special!

Jayanne, I just want to thank you again for all of your help with planning our Valentine's Day wedding!  You made the process so easy and stress free. We couldn't have asked for a better location, weather, flowers, hair and makeup (Lori), photographer (Branden Sequeira), officiant (Robert Kuya), and wedding coordinator (You!).  Robert made us feel very comfortable during the ceremony and Branden was so discreet taking photographs that we didn't even notice him during the ceremony, but he captured some wonderful moments.  Our pictures turned out even better than I could have ever imagined!  I think about that day often and just love how everything came together.   Thank you again to you and all of your staff for making our day so incredibly special!  We can't wait to visit Maui again!  Aloha, Alexis and John
