1 review for A Paradise Dream Wedding
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!

Amazingly enough, we never tire of seeing happy clients! In fact, we breath such happiness like it's oxygen - so we took a deep breath on this blog entry at Susan & Brad's little corner of the Net
We'll see you on the mainland! Aloha!
P.S. Here's a close up picture of my bouquet. It was so cool. It had a little pineapple in it. It was perfect. Della did an amazing job on it! Perfectly tropical!!!
