Thank you for your incredible talents

March 31, 2017

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
