A Hawaii Wedding

Hawaii Weddings and Vow Renewals on Oahu


Client Testimonials




There's no better validation than an expression of thanks. We have received many, some simple, others more detailed.

We have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau of Hawaii and we do pretty well with other review sites like Yelp and Wedding Wire.

FYI: We'd have more reviews on Yelp but, a few clients have told us that "Yelp" wouldn't post their review. According to Yelp, if it sounds "too good" or you get too many of them, they're not posted.

Have we had a handful of unhappy clients? Unfortunately, yes. We've been in business along time. The handful of times it has happened, it was about money or the client either misunderstood (our very detailed website) or they simply assumed something based upon what another website told them or their unhappiness started not with us.

FYI: We wish we could post all of our "thank you's", all of the time but, updating the website takes hours on the computer and we just loath doing it, so the updating may not be as frequent as we would want. :)

ALOHA ! !
Good Morning Charlie / Mike..

Sally and I just wanted to pass along a special thank you for making our day so... well... special.

Renewing our vows is something we have talked about doing for our 25th anniversary for some time and it is hard to believe it has come and gone. But thanks to you both, it will be a lasting memory we will cherish forever. You both were so much fun and so easy going, we will have joyful memories of you as well. We are so thankful that you two will also be a part of those memories.

Thank you for being both professional and full of joy. We had such a good time yesterday... Thank you once again for providing such a wonderful experience and sharing your time with us!

You really do look like brothers!
Mahalo and Aloha!
Pat and Sally

Just a short note to say how fabulous you and Reverend Mike were. There are no words to say just how perfect you both made this day. Not a single disappointment, and you both blew our expectations away! You both kept things so calm and relaxed and Rev. Mike was such a pure joyful soul! We are so glad you picked him for us and grateful for your amazing and creative photography!

TTYS:)
Mahalo,
Nicole and John

Aloha!

Thanks so much! We had a wonderful wedding (minus the nerve racking thunderstorm earlier in the day). Charlie and Kermit did a fabulous job. All of our friends and family raved about what a great job they both did. Also, everyone that we’ve shown the photos to love them.

Traca & Jocelyn

--------------------------------



Aloha!

What a great experience we had for our wedding. It was absolutely perfect... relaxed and fun! Just what we wanted. I can't say thank you enough for Mike (he was perfect) and for Charlie, our photographer. Both were so friendly and kind that it just made everything wonderful. We loved everything about our experience. Thank you!

Thanks for making our special day perfect!

Hello AHawaiiWedding.com

First off, Mike and I want to thank you all for an absolutely PERFECT wedding!!! We were so impressed with how everything worked out and wanted to thank you all for making our wedding so memorable and fun for our guests as well! The music, the conduction of the ceremony and the photography were all just so well executed and there isn't anything we would've changed. THANK YOU!!!

Candice and Mike

--------------------------------



We want to thank Mike for a wonderful ceremony and also the photographer who did a great job. We were very pleased and our ceremony was exactly what we wanted... simple, beautiful, painless.

Thank you again for everything.

Cates & Tiffany

Thank you again for the great service. We told all of our friends about your company and how wonderful you guys were. It was a great experience.

Calleja Family

Thank you so much for your support on our wedding on July 8th. My wife and myself had such a wonderful wedding and our parents had a great time as well.

Go & Miwa

--------------------------------



Hi there. We'd just like to thank you again for a great wedding. It was just as you promised. You were both friendly and easy going and the wedding was simple and romantic as it could be. We had the perfect wedding and honeymoon in our opinion.

Mahalo,
Janelle

Hi Charles,

Mike and I wanted to extend an enormous THANK YOU for the brilliant work that went into making our wedding day so incredible. Everything, from the planning to our "rain adventure" on the actual day was so fluid and stress-free thanks to you and the vendors in the AHW ohana. We felt as though we were in the best possible hands despite making arrangements from 5 time zones away!

Our pictures and video are lovely and we're thrilled they both came out so well. Our families appreciate having such wonderful records of the day.

Thank you again,
Kelley and Mike

The morning of the wedding saw my wife and daughter fretting over the dress and the hair appointment to ensure they had "beach do's" ready to handle the occasional sea breezes. Meanwhile, the Groom and I hiked Diamond Head crater and spent some great bonding time together. When we returned, the ladies were still getting their hair done so we gentlemen hit the pool for awhile.

A couple hours before limo time, we enjoyed taking a few family pictures together around our hotel. Right at 3:00 P.M. the limo arrived and we were off on a short ride to Makapu'u' beach where the setting was extraordinary. My friends and coworkers cannot believe the photos you shot are real. "These have to be Photoshop-ed, it is so beautiful!" one said. After a short but very sentimental and memorable ceremony, we were off to another beach for sunset shots which turned out awesome. Then it was back to the hotel for the big dinner. All told, we were gone for maybe two and a half hours but what memories we now have. Grandpa, the former Navy photographer, would approve of your photo work if he was here to see it. It was spectacular and the digital nature of the prints afforded so much more flexibility for sharing this occasion with others.

Weddings are really about memories. And, thanks to your incomparable photography, we have lasting memories we will cherish forever. The one thing I don't have is memories of stress or the inevitable hassles associated with the usual wedding problems. The whole event went like clockwork and the smile on the face of the bride shows. That alone was worth the price of admission. And to think we actually thought about having this wedding at home.

With only one child we hoped our first wedding would go well. We could not have dreamed that it would have gone as well as it did. Thank you, thank you and thank you again.

Aloha,
Ray Stark

I want to express Alice's and my appreciation for the outstanding photographs you produced for our September 14th wedding on Waialae Beach plus the additional scenic photos at Makapuu Point Lookout. We valued your very professional, friendly, and personable manner from the start of our first email to the receipt of the DVD sent by Priority Mail.

Our relatives and friends have responded with wowing exclamation points after viewing the photos on the website and seeing the finished prints made from the DVD. I am so glad we requested the "guaranteed best photographer" on the Order Form. The variety of quality images from wide angle to special close-ups taken and produced in sequence, depicted a wonderful "flow" of the ceremony highlights.

We also recognized the skillful "team" handling our ceremony events through the fine coordination between you and Rev. Mike and Pete, the chauffeur. Your wonderful ability to work together helped make our wedding day the cherished and memorable event we had always hoped it would be.

I've enclosed an envelope for you to deliver to Rev. Mike at your earliest opportunity. It contains our special appreciation for his part in our ceremony. His selection of words, neat appearance and attire all added beautifully to our special day. Additionally, his tips for obtaining our certified marriage certificate helped us obtain copies very quickly.

We will certainly recommend your services to others who may be considering a wedding in Hawaii. Thank you again for your exceptionally fine service.

Sincerely,
Philip See original letter here

Aloha Charlie, Scott & Rev. Mike,

Geraldine and I just want to thank the three of you for making our wedding day most memorable. Your professionalism and relaxed, easy-going Hawaiian attitudes allowed us to be ourselves and take away the stressfulness a wedding atmosphere can bring. The authentic Hawaiian style wedding created by Rev. Mike on the beach was simply beautiful. His conch-blowing to get the party started right was awesome. We even felt Hawaiian. Waimanalo beach was a great choice by my lovely wife... they really are right most of the time. lol. And all the photos look great Charlie. We also look forward to watching Scott's handy work whenever the video is ready.

Mahalo,
Danilo & Geraldine

--------------------------------

Hi Charlie,

Thank you very much for the pictures and the video. They were very beautifully done and very professional. I have recommended you to several of my friends and family who are considering doing the same type of wedding in Hawaii. Maryna was also very happy with everything, and has uploaded the video for her family to watch in Ukraine.

Kind regards,
Chris

--------------------------------

Thank you Thank you thank you. You guys are absolutely wonderful. Everything was perfect and the picture quality is way more than I expected....THANK YOU

Juanita

The pictures are awesome! Fowarded the link to my daughter & son-in-law. They are still on their honeymoon in Kauai, but have a laptop with them and will be thrilled with your pictures.
 
Thank you so very much for what my daughter said was "a perfect wedding". You made everything go incredibly smooth. Thank you for taking care of all the details. The make-up gals were a blast and did a great job for us, the limo was fun, the ukulele player excellent, flowers more than we asked for and of course, your pictures are fantastic and amazing, what an incredibly gifted photographer you are!  Wow! We were so lucky to have you! We look forward to the video, which will be shown at the reception at the end of July.
 
If you ever need a referral I would be happy to do that for you. Just have them email or call me. You and your whole team are awesome!

Aloha,
Shel

We just wanted to write to you now that the big day has been and gone! Where do we start??? Your professionalism, your patience, your assistance, your honesty, your prompt communication ...... were all exceptional! Our wedding was absolutely perfect and we couldn't have hoped for anything more. To organise a wedding via emails, in a country we've never been to, and to pay money to a company we found on the net was a little scary to say the least. We are so thankful that we put our trust in you!!!!! Everything that we wanted was arranged and anything we didn't quite understand was explained in detail. There were no hidden surprises with the costs and we received everything that we paid for. We have just received our photo CD and the photos are amazing. The photographer, was fantastic and made us feel very comfortable. Our wedding officiate, was lovely. He also managed to calm our nerves and make us feel comfortable with the ceremony!! We cannot thank you enough for all that you did to make our special day so memorable.
 
Aloha and Mahalo,
Amanda and John

We haven’t taken the time to thank “A Hawaii Wedding” for what they did for us. We were so unsure of how our day would turn out having never met either the minister, photographer or anyone associated with your service. Not to mention the fact that our request of a motorcycle wedding was less than ordinary. It could not have been more perfect. Our heartfelt appreciation and thanks to our minister. His words were sincere and my husband and I remember them vividly. Our ceremony was as beautiful as the island itself. And thanks so much to Charlie our photographer, who captured fantastic memories of our day. What more can we say? It was a very special day for Victor and I. Thank you all for making it so perfect.
 
Mahalo.
Victor and Lesia

--------------------------------

Thank you. You are very helpful. I am just trying to make sure everything is perfect and as you can imagine, it's pretty difficult from Australia - organizing a wedding in Hawaii! Having said that, since you have the experience and clearly I don't, I am just going to put my complete trust in you. I am sure you will do the best that you can.
 
I have been contacting places in Hawaii that advertise weddings for a few months now. You have been the fastest to respond and by far the most helpful. I have given your web address and copies of our correspondence to my travel agent here. She often has people asking her about weddings in Hawaii and she refers them to a company here in Australia that negotiate etc. with people in Hawaii.(At an incredibly expensive rate too). Your excellence has allowed me to show her that there is no need to refer people to an expensive company when they can do the work themselves! So, having said that, you now have the respect of my travel agent and she will be referring others to you.

Amanda

--------------------------------

The photos are beautiful! Charlie your top photographer was terrific and he did a great job making everyone comfortable. Your service, website, patience and help was greatly appreciated. We will definitely recommend you. Thank you.
Rika.

We just wanted to thank you and everybody involved with our wedding ceremony on the 8th of May. We had an unforgettable experience and a great and relaxed day! The laid-back (and Hawaiian..) attitude from all of you created a lot of positive energy! The synergy between everybody was amazing. Besides that, the pictures you provided are beautiful. Again, Mahalo.

Warm regards,
Humphrey & Nienke.

--------------------------------



--------------------------------

Again, thank you so much for everything. The wedding really was special and we thought that you did a wonderful job making the wedding a little more personal for us. I am going to recommend your services to anyone I know who may be making it over to Hawaii for a wedding!

Kyoko.

---------------------------------

We just wanted to thank you again for a great and very memorable wedding.  We have watched the DVD several times now and looked through the photos, they are better than we could have imagined!!  Beautifully put together and very professional. I will definitely recommend your company and Oahu as a wedding location to anyone. Thanks again.

Aloha,
Claire & Ian

---------------------------------

Once again thank you to you and your team for putting together the package that enabled us to have such a terrific time with our family. I will most certainly be recommending your company to anyone who may in the position where they are either thinking of conducting a renewal of their vows, and I know several of my friends wives are looking at them and asking "why haven you done the same for me or taking the first steps in marriage.

Regards,
Steve.

---------------------------------

You did a great job! We love the pictures. The ceremony was short and sweet as we'd asked.

Jeff

---------------------------------

Just wanted to thank you on the terrific job you did on helping with my daughter Danielle Tapija's wedding. I was a little hesitant at first planning a wedding from so far away, but  everything turned out spectacular.  I was very impressed.  The cake was beautiful, just as we had pictured it would be.  The minister, photographer, and ukulele player all showed up a half hour early.  Plenty of time to prepare things.  Everyone was very nice.  Thanks again, and if we need to plan another wedding in Hawaii in the future, I will definitely use you again. And as you say in Hawaii.

Mahalo,
Laura

---------------------------------



---------------------------------

Paul and I wanted to thank you for making our wedding day perfect! We never thought a wedding could be so much fun, so romantic, and so easy to plan! We loved everything about the ceremony.

Nicole

---------------------------------

I just wanted to thank you so much for getting right back to me when I contact you with a question.  I have to admit that I was a little apprehensive at first using any website for the wedding, but I'll have to say that so far it has been a good experience working with you and all my doubts have been set aside.

Thanks Again,
Laura

---------------------------------

When you want to get married in a different country, it can be quite daunting to find a company that ‘seems’ trustworthy, knowing that they would be responsible for so much of your big day. It is also difficult to find a company that will be flexible enough to offer the kind of wedding that suits each couples situation.
 
The website for A Hawaii Wedding was what really spoke to me; the online form presented all of the available options for each part of the wedding, so my fiancé and I could sit down and customise a wedding that actually suited what we needed and could afford, particularly in terms of the photography.

During our wedding planning, everyone was very helpful with our questions, and even months later when we called you, in a panic, trying to track down the licensing office, you were able to talk us through the details we needed.

On the day, the photographer and the local Minister were very professional and re-assuring, and the photos were amazing!  Because the weather and lighting can change quite quickly in Hawaii, we were also very appreciative to have that local photographic experience, and he was able to suggest a variation to our originally planned photo locations, to get the best shots on the day - he did not disappoint!

Anyway, thank you for all your help to make our wedding the best day of our lives!"

Jay and I will be sending you a more detailed hand-written thank you note, but we wanted to send you a quick email thanking you and you staff for the beautiful photos and video! We are SO SO PLEASED. Mahalo!!!

Tracy

---------------------------------

I just watched the DVD....IT IS AWESOME! I can't say enough. I felt like I was back in Hawaii again. The effects, the camera angles, the music....everything came out perfect. Just an AWESOME, AWESOME job. The DVD cases were great too!  Extremely well done and very professional. My sincere thanks and gratitude to you and your staff for a perfect job.  Jocelyn and I are very, very thankful. You guy's really are great.  It's worth every penny...and more. (Since Jocelyn is still in Virginia, and the DVD's were delivered here to me in Saugus, she hasn't seen the DVD yet. I'll be headed there this weekend though. I hope she has enough Kleenex as I know when she sees the DVD, she's sure to shed a few tears.  In all honesty, I did.)

Sincerely,
Tom & Jocelyn

---------------------------------

Aloha. We received the wedding CD today and just previewed the photos on the computer.  They look wonderful!  What a beautiful wedding and location.  We can't wait to print the pictures. We are extremely grateful to you for taking so many photos.  We are so happy that we were able to get all of the shots, and have to agree that it would not have been enough with the smaller package. Thank you for pulling together all of the details for our wedding and making the day exceptional. The flowers were beautiful.  Susan did a good job with my hair and makeup.  The dinner at Aaron's was perfect, and the minister and the limo and driver were wonderful.

Thank You,
Jasmine and Eric

---------------------------------

I just wanted to write to let you know that we received both pictures and DVD's and to thank you for your services. We are very happy with how things turned out and our families are still talking about how the wedding was such a success. Please send our very best to Tony for capturing such intimate moments and for putting the DVD together so beautifully, and Reverend Mike for a unique and memorable ceremony that could have only happened in Hawaii, it was just beautiful. I now have the day to relive over and over again, thank you. Take good care and continued success.

Anne & Danny

---------------------------------



---------------------------------

Thank you for the CD's now they work fine and we could print those lovely photos. They both worked fine and we are so pleased with the result. And you are highly recommended to our friends and family. Every one loved the photos all around the world. Thank you again so much. We think of you as a great friend of us and we hope to see you soon. With all kindest regards.

Sepideh & Ardavan

---------------------------------

We received the pictures and the video. The video was so amazing. It was nice to look at it and see things that we didn't remember. The music was beautiful and so fitting. The pictures are great too. I had a couple printed off as a 12x18 and they are so nice.

Bobbi Leigh Blyth

---------------------------------

I just want to thank you for helping us have the kind of wedding we were hoping to have - delightful and stress-free!  Your whole crew were just awesomely gracious and kind.  You all made the Aloha spirit so real for us. :)

Mahalo again!
Anne and Robert

---------------------------------

Quick note to let you know that we received the album last week. Thank you for the fantastic job you did on our wedding day. As a result we have beautiful pictures that will last us a life time. Thank-you!!!

Natalie and Colwayne

---------------------------------

Karen and I finally got a chance to sit down last night and look at the wedding photos and they are wonderful. We both want to thank you very much for making our special day even more special! It was a pleasure to have you organise things for us and I hope to be able to buy you a thank you beer some time in the future when I return to Hawaii. Once again thank you.

Aloha,
Stephen

---------------------------------



--------------------------------

I got a chance to see some of the pics you sent....They look GREAT!  You did an outstanding job.  We were really lucky to have had you as our photographer for our wedding.  It's a once in a lifetime event (well, in most cases), and from everything I've seen, you've done a perfect job. You can bet we'll definitely recommend you for anyone else who plans to get married in Hawaii. Spectacular job....Simply outstanding. Thanks for everything.  You made our special day even more memorable.

Jacob and Natalie

---------------------------------

I just wanted to say thank you so much for organizing the wedding last week, you did a wonderful job – it was a fantastic day and the photos are great (apart from my windswept hair but I guess that is appropriate for a beach wedding!).

Kind Regards,
Caroline

---------------------------------

We received the beautiful photos earlier this week. Thank you so much for all the attention and effort you put in to making our wedding day so memorable and special. We are very pleased with the photographs.  You were able to capture every moment of our wedding. We have enjoyed reliving the moment through your photographs.  I have already provided your name and website address to several others now interested in getting married or renewing their vows in Oahu. Thank you again.  You have definitely exceeded our expectations.
Respectfully,
David and Karen

---------------------------------

Let me start by saying it was a real treat to have our wedding CD waiting for us when we got home. We are thrilled with the pictures and consider ourselves lucky to have found you. You did an excellent job with our pictures. Thanks for all you did for us.

Sue and Tony

---------------------------------

Just had a chance to view the CD's.  Unreal!  They came out great! Good job....Really great.

Thanks again,
John
