I didn't start planning my wedding when I was 4.  I didn't start when I first fell in love.  I didn't start when all my friends seemed to be planning their own weddings.  I didn't start when I acquired enough experience as a bridesmaid and maid of honor to add this to my resume.  And I definitely didn't start when Pete proposed.  When I did realize that the wedding wasn't going to magically happen without any effort on my part, I began to panic.  I had no idea what I wanted.  I didn't really care about the details.  I just knew that we wanted to get married in Maui.

After looking at many, many wedding photographer websites in Maui, and many wedding planning sites, I found A Paradise Dream Wedding.  My search ended the second I laid eyes on Gordon Nash's work.  I was content with working with any company that was associated with Gordon.  Even better, his company!  

As this wedding was planned 100% long distance, I put my trust in the wonderful staff at A Paradise Dream Wedding.  From the moment I spoke to Joanne Earles over the phone, I was confident that I made the right choice.  She was personable and professional.  Then I began to communicate with my coordinator, Jo Thurman, and I felt like my best friend was helping me plan my wedding.  She helped me every single step of the way and she erased any stress or worry.  Jo answered each of my questions promptly and thoroughly, and sent me a wealth of pictures of different wedding sights, reception sights, etc.  She gave great suggestions but was never pushy and she happily supported my decisions.  All the stress was taken out of planning a wedding, because Jo handled everything.  And she did it so well!  Pete & I simply had to show up.

A Paradise Dream Wedding coordinates the photography (there are so many amazing photographers, check out their portfolios on the sight), hair/makeup, the minister, flowers, the cake, catering, the reception, travel planning, and many, many more areas.  I took advantage of just about every service, and it was nice to have everything covered like this.  I trusted that A Paradise Dream Wedding was affiliated with great vendors, and my experience showed me they definitely are.

I cannot recommend the photographers enough.  My hubby and I are super nervous in front of the camera, and quite unphotogenic, but our wedding album is full of gorgeous pictures from Gordon.  He's amazing.  Simply amazing.

My flowers were done by Dellables (by Della Peacock) and I was thoroughly impressed.  I told her I wanted bright Hawaiian flowers.  That's it.  Upon further questioning, I sent her one picture of a bouquet I liked, but then added that I didn't love it, but maybe she could kind of get the idea.  This poor woman had nothing to go on!  I thought I didn't really care about flowers until I saw my bouquet.  I was blown away by how beautiful it was.  She made a bouquet that was more beautiful than I could have imagined and was exactly my style.  Della made corsages and boutonnieres for several members of my family, and her work is just gorgeous.
 

From start to finish, I had an extremely positive experience working with the staff at A Paradise Dream Wedding.  I would highly recommend this company to anyone who wants to work with a very professional, extremely organized company who handles all the details, so you don't have to!  I didn't think a wedding could be stress free, especially after seeing what some of my friends went through, but it completely can be.  I know, because mine was!
