When it all comes together...

Take one happy couple, mix with perfect Maui weather, an awesome Dellables bouquet, capture with professional ease using photographer Ian Shepherd of A Paradise Dream Wedding, and .....

well, see for yourself...
or read what the Bride said:

"I was a little skeptical planning a wedding in Hawaii because of all the unknowns but after speaking with Arlyn, I was put totally at ease. Everything was perfect. I could not have asked for more. Arlyn, Joanne, and Della were great. Ian was everything we could have asked for and more. We were totally at ease with him and our pictures show it. Everyone that has looked at our photos cannot believe them. The shots he got were unbelievable. Rev. Dennis was the best. It felt like we had known him forever. I would definitely recommend your wedding services to anyone thinking of a destination wedding
in Hawaii!!"

Another Happy Maui Wedding Couple Testimonial

Dellables had the great pleasure to work with the crew at A Paradise Dream Wedding here on Maui.
Everything went so well!  The Bride and Groom took time to send in a very glowing report, which we quote here.

Our wedding day was one of the most memorable days of our lives and we
could not be happier with A Paradise Dream Wedding for helping shape
our perfect wedding. The coordination from the get-go was great, by
both phone and email, our Coordinator Joanne Earls was fabulous and so
patient with all our requests. She really went the extra step to
allow us to include all the details important to us within our
wedding, as well as meeting with us the day before to review it all-
as per our request. We were drawn to APDW by the photography on the
web site and it does hold true to the end result- Ian Shepherd, our
photographer, was beyond amazing!!! He truly captured our day as we
had imagined and he went above and beyond for our wedding. His emails
were so attentive and genuine, and his amazing work proves why he is a
part of such a talented group. He took his time shooting our
requested shots and had awesome follow up communication. Kimo Kirkman
was our minister and we truly believe no one else was meant to perform
our wedding. His genuine words and calming voice set for a perfect
ceremony! Tim O’Hara, our guitarist was just right! Jean Muldoon did
awesome on hair and makeup- she was wide awake at 6 AM and ready to
go, she executed the look I requested even better than the inspiration
photos I provided to her- just fabulous! The flower bouquets
requested were right on, and the petal aisle and reception decor by
Della Peacock were amazing! She was such a shining angel in the mist
of flower planning frustration and her gorgeous table arrangements
surpassed my highest expectations- I smiled inside when our day had
finally arrived and all my “interior designer obsessive decor” nerves
were calmed by the beautiful table Della had set!
Our day was so
special to us, not only for our personal commitments and having had
such a perfect wedding, but because of the people who helped make it
happen. We’ll always remember “our Maui spot” and all the individuals
above who
were a part in our very memorable day. THANKS APDW!!!!!!

Today's Lucky Bride

Today's Lucky Bride (and Groom) were at my favorite Secret Cove on Maui, enjoying the moment!  A moment only the Tropics could provide, with a little help from the Wizards of Wonderful over at A Paradise Dream Wedding.
Wedding Photography takes many forms ~ it can showcase the technical movement of light and lenses ~ often timing makes the magic stand still forever in the capture of that moment.   Those skills are required and not uncommon among the world's best professionals.  Yet, when you see a picture like this one, you know you are in the presence of a Master Photographer, a Michelangelo, if you will, of the art form.
Ian Shepard, one of the amazing guys that Gordon Nash has on his world class team of photographers choreographed this shot with that touch of genius rarely found, much less experienced.
Classic.  And that BOUQUET!  Wow Dellables!  Those dark lilies!
Maui No Ka Oi.

A Shade of Yesteryear...

(repost from Today's Lucky Bride)

When you think about what exactly makes a Bride Lucky, our theme here at Todays Lucky, you will find hundreds of examples with the professionals at A Paradise Dream Wedding.

Their photographers, world class in all regards, can capture, can inspire even, the look, the feel, the mojo of happiness, that a Lucky Bride must feel.

Here, Ian Shepard, one of their best, captures that 1940's From Here to Eternity look in a way that Hollywood could only aspire to!
