Paradise Dream Team,
Oscar and I would like to extend our sincere appreciation to everyone at A Paradise Dream Wedding for making our wedding day into a truly special memory that we can forever hold dear in our hearts. The very first decision we made when we got engaged was to get married on Maui, and to have A Paradise Dream Wedding photograph the event. It was the best decision we made and we could not be happier with the results.
Wedding coordinator Jayanne was always available, whether it be through email or phone conversation, and was very accommodating throughout the entire planning process. Each aspect of our wedding was clearly well organized, and it was honestly such a blessing that there was no need to worry; we knew we were in very capable hands as soon as we landed on Maui.
Gordon Nash and his team are the ultimate professionals and made us both feel extremely relaxed and comfortable. Both he and Mami were on hand at our intimate ceremony, and they captured all the emotions and beauty we felt that day. Hide, our cinematographer, did an amazing job on the featurette (my parents love the video so much that they’ve watched it every single day since we got it). While I had originally wavered on including cinematography, I now think it is essential for every bride to have!
Our minister Laki Ka’ahumanu was the best, hands down. His authentic and welcoming personality made our wedding unforgettable for both us and our guests. I think the Hawaiian experience we were looking for was embodied by Laki’s heartfelt delivery and style.
The choice to do a sunset photo session with Arien was absolutely priceless because the resulting pictures were stunning, to say the least. He was super friendly and easy going, and I’m very thankful for his suggestions and posing ideas.
Honestly, Oscar and I are completely blown away by the extraordinary quality of work we received on our wedding planning, pictures and video. The post production work provided by Mami on our photos is simply stunning, and again, I cannot say enough good things about Hide’s cinematic eye.
So Thank you again to everyone for the amazing experience, and we look forward to coming back to visit Maui soon!
