Michael-
Just a note of thanks for arranging the beautiful ceremony last night. It was wonderful to be able to propose to Kristen all over again in front of our five beautiful daughters and her Mom. Both the setting and the ceremony were absolutely perfect. Thank you again.
Aloha!

Michael and Fern,
My Mom and Dad were thrilled with the vow renewal last night. They said that they couldn't have asked for anything better and that the ceremony was perfect. I can't thank you enough for all of your time and effort in assisting me and my siblings with this ceremony for our parents. I will definitely recommend your services to anyone who asks.
Thanks again,

Hello Michael & Fern,
Well, we are back to reality now - how fortunate you both are to live in paradise!!
Scott & I wanted to let you know how blessed we are to have found you. Our vow renewal ceremony was everything we dreamed of and more... even down to helping us select our beach venue. You went above and beyond to make everything go smoothly, and for that we cannot thank you enough!
You helped us make family memories that will last for ever.
Here's to our next 20 years!
Aloha

"Just a note to let you know we are fine. I always remember you Fern, all the words you said when we had that beautiful ceremony in Hanalei. It is unforgettable, I remember that day often, the pictures came out beautiful. In my worse moments I think about the joy of that occasion and every worry disappears. I see you updated your web site, that means you are doing great. Jose and I are planning to go to Kauai again, if at all possible in October. If not definitely next year. I miss the island, Jose calls it "our island". I will contact you when we get there. We will love to say Hello to you. Take care, love always, "
Laly & Jose, April 2008


"Aloha Fern!
We just wanted to let you know that we had a beautiful marrymoon in Kauai! Thank you again for the lovely down to earth service that you performed for us.

Everything turned out just how we hoped it would! Our romantic dinner afterwards was wonderful as well and the setting so lovely! We cant wait to return to Kauai again and we loved the island activities. How many brides get to go snorkeling 2 hours before they leave to a beach to say "I DO!" We also wanted to let you know that we found my engagement ring!!!

Happy Easter!"
Rosalind & Darrell, March 2008


"Hi, Fern -
Just wanted to drop you a short note now that we're back home to thank you for a wonderful vow renewal on Hanalei beach. It'll be something we both remember fondly for years to come. Plus, the photos turned out great! Renay's now the envy of all the women in her office, so hopefully we'll have some referrals for you sometime soon. Mahalo again!

PS We were greeted back in Minneapolis by temperatures of -15 . Talk about being shocked back into reality!"

Gerry Leone, February 2007


"Aloha Fern & Michael,
My wife and I have just arrived home in Scotland after our travels. We just have to thank you for all the help and advice from yourselves when we were arranging our wedding. As for the wedding day, Everything was perfect and we can not thank you enough for all the arrangements that were made by yourselves. We loved the Ceremony and our photographs are excellent.

All in all it was the perfect start to a wonderful time we had touring the Hawaiian Islands and trip of a lifetime. Kaua'i is our favorite of all the islands as the scenery is magical and the pace of life seems just perfect. We will return, Hopefully in the near future.

Mahalo and Aloha,"

Belinda and Ian, June 2006

Our warmest wishes,"

"Dear Fern & Michael,

We are back in San Diego and would like to thank so much for your assistance and services.

I have travelled extensively, but rarely I have felt so sad to leave a place. We had a wonderful time in Hawaii.

We loved the ceremony. Fern, you were very sweet and your words during the ceremony moved me. I would like to specially thank you for making everything perfect. I will always cherish this good and positive feeling you communicated during the ceremony. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

If you ever come to San Diego give us a call, as we say in Italy: my home is your home.
Best,"

Maria


"Tamie and myself would like to take this time to thank you very much for making our day as perfect as it was. There was nothing we would change and the wedding went without a flaw! We have also all ready received the pictures to chose from to put together our album and also there was not one picture we can do without. Thank you again. You made the day as special as it should be."

"We wanted to say thank you once again for a job well done, fantastic. We were very, very pleased and it seemed like everything ran smoothly, like clockwork. You were right on with your estimates of timing! It was great to meet you and please give my best to Karen. We were just were thrilled with the way the wedding turned out and thank you for all your help! I appreciate it more than I can tell you. The setting was out of this world. You can't imagine the extreme difference from where we live, in the high desert. You sure have selected special people to work with who were as nice as they are talented. Again, thank you very much. WE ARE MOST SATISFIED CUSTOMERS. Fondly,"

"Aloha Michael! I've been meaning to get around to writing you to let you know how much we enjoyed having you officiate our ceremony on Makua Beach! We were pretty worn out by the end of the evening - but the stress was gone and we had a blast for two weeks after that. Kauai is so beautiful! We're already talking about coming back in a few years... Maybe we'll do a vow renewal!

Anyway, we're delighted to be married, the ceremony was perfect, and we appreciate it more and more each time we talk about it. Thanks a million!

PS - By the way, we got the video and it's just great - what fun!"

Suzanne and Jon, July 2003


"Dear Fern, We have made it back to our previous "reality" after our fairy tale wedding (thanks to you) in Hawaii. I apologize this note comes three weeks later but the reintegration to the fast pace is quite consuming. A couple lose ends I wanted to tie up. First, and foremost......Thank you for the most incredible experience I will ever have, the wedding was beyond my imagination and hopes. And the good news keeps coming, the pictures were just unbelievable. I hope you were able to view them. I am speechless.

Again, thank you for all your hard work. You make making dreams come true look so easy. Hope all is well in beautiful Kauai!!! Aloha!!!"

Kim & John, July 2003

"We cannot thank you enough for the effort you placed into the wedding plans and ceremony. Your patience during all of our phone calls and letters is greatly appreciated. You were very generous with your time before, during, and after our ceremony. It is difficult to express our sincere Thanks for making our Special Day a beautiful memory."
Bryan & Shelly, April, 1992, Ohio

"We just wanted to write to say thank you for all your assistance in planning our wedding. I have to admit I was nervous about making arrangements from thousands of miles away (we live in Michigan), but everything was handled wonderfully by you and your incredible staff. Although our wedding was simple, with just a few guests, you put everything together and helped us have a wedding to remember always!!

Everyone that has seen the wedding pictures or the video, has asked how we managed to get everything taken care of while we were so far away. The answer is always the same--we simply chose "the best" company to deal with. You and your staff did such a tremendous job we just had to tell you how much we appreciate it!
