Review From "Wedding Wire" and "The Knot":

Leah and the Island Wedding Memories team plucked my dream wedding vision right out of my head and made it a reality! I was nervous about planning a destination wedding for 70 people over the phone/email but Leah made the process seamless. I explained to her what we had in mind and she ran with it. She found us the perfect venue (Olowalu Plantation House). Our catering (Cafe O'Lei) was divine and both the photographer and videographer were fun & professional.

Our guests are still raving about the event!

Leah kept in contact with me on costs, budgets, scheduling and details all along the way so I never felt out of the loop.She takes care of every last detail from scheduling the marriage licensing appointment to seeing us off at the end of our perfect day.

She was quick and responsive to all inquiries and far exceeded our expectations! I felt like I was working with one of my best friends.

Thanks Leah!!! Many Mahalos

Review From "The Knot":

My wonderful, very romantic husband, worked with the "team" to give me the SURPRISE of my lifetime- a SURPRISE wedding vow renewal ceremony, complete with all the "trimmings"! It was so beautiful in every respect and with everyone involved! My husband and our two kids were so happy with every detail! I wanted to thank you again for making my special day so remarkable!! Thank you, Thank you! Mimi and Craig Platt

ALSO

Review From "Wedding Wire" and "The Knot:

Island Wedding Memories did just an amazing job with our vow renewal. Ideal. Perfect. Excellent. Wonderful. Pick your superlative!! Leah was fantastic, Kale was a perfect person to perform the traditional Hawaiian Ceremony and Tad was great as a photographer. They do not do a high number of ceremonies in order to spend more time with family, something we totally connect with. Plus they are local and focus solely on Maui. Just what we needed and hoped for.... and then some. They were so in tune with us and understood our hopes and dreams for this ceremony. They live the true Aloha spirit, and are very special people. Don't bother to look further. You have found what you are looking for!

Aloha Leah,  

Thank you so much for making our special wedding day an overall success for us and for our family and friends. It was a beautiful ceremony. I really enjoyed both the video and photography services provided afterwards. Also, the two young ladies who provided my hair and make-up services were an absolute blast to work with and did a wonderful job.

You are super easy to get a hold of which is greatly appreciated by potentially stressed out brides from afar hoping for fabulous maui weddings!  

Mahalo!

It has been amazing! And I can’t express the gratitude we have to Leah and Island Wedding Memories. So if you are looking for a wedding planner, stop here! This is the place!

Hi Leah,

We would like to thank you for helping make our wedding day the best day of our lives! Words cannot describe how amazing our wedding was. We were so grateful to have your guidance during the entire wedding process. When we started planning, we anticipated it would be a challenge to plan a wedding in a different state but you made the process so easy and fun! I appreciated how you always got back to us right away with any questions or concerns we might have had. The whole planning process and the wedding itself ran smoothly and with such ease. You have been an immense help and because of you we were both able to relax and enjoy our wedding day. Our guests are still talking about how nice you were and how beautiful the wedding was. Every time I show wedding pictures everyone points out how beautiful the bouquets were! You did a great job. We think the flowers and décor were perfect and we couldn't have been happier with how everything turned out.Hiring you to help plan our wedding was such a great decision. Thank you again for everything, Leah! If we know someone who is getting married in Hawaii we will definitely recommend you! ;)

Sincerely, Sam and Jake Hilden

We chose you because I liked the time you took to ask me questions about what I like and think. You gave me a few options (not too many that it was overwhelming), but great ones.

We liked that the reminders and email follow ups were prompt. I also liked your personal touch with everything.

We absolutely loved the personal touches, originality, creativity and efficiency of you Leah. You made our wedding day stress free, and left all of our guests in awe. It was the most romantic and wonderful wedding imaginable, and we will remember it for the rest of our lives. We will always be thankful and appreciative of you and your team, and will refer many others your way.

With special thanks and love, Delbert and Kirby Seabrook.

It was so nice to meet you and your family, and it was a pleasure for us to plan their wedding with your advice and help! Even with the rain, their wedding was amazingly beautiful....a memorable, perfect day! All of their guests, family, and friends enjoyed the wedding so much, and we each had a wonderful time exploring Maui. Our pictures are amazing! Hopefully someday soon we will make it back to Maui. Thank you again for your help in making Chelsea and Bo's wedding day so special!

Review From Parents of the Bride on "Wedding Wire":

Leah, of Island Wedding Memories, was extremely helpful and responsive to all of our inquiries and suggestions as we planned our daughter's wedding. We couldn't imagine taking on such a big task as long-distance wedding planning with anyone else. We had contacted other planners employed by local resorts and found them lacking--no return phone calls and a general feeling they were too busy to want to help. Leah was personable and professional and she took our budget into account without ever trying to up-sell on any additional services. We would not only recommend her to others, we would stop in to visit her if we make our way back to Maui.

Video Testimonial Transcript:

Shelley I initially contacted Leah, I found her website and I’m just going to tell it like it is. Most coordinators here on Maui charge 20% and I was looking for somebody and I actually found 15%. I emailed her; she emailed me back right away so I just knew she was the lady. She was so easy to communicate with through the whole process. Was willing to do many, even calls on the phone….oops! Sorry!.....I don’t know, what else can I say. She just put together an amazing wedding.

Sean: Really, I think when you’re putting something together this big……

Shelley And you’re a ways at home…in Edmonton….I’m sorry, I interrupted. I’m bad at doing that….

Sean: It’s nice to have somebody that feels like family that’s here taking care of you. And I think from the moment that we first contacted her via email and over the phone and even when we met her here, that’s how she made us feel like we were a member of her family and she just had a wonderful smile on her face all the time. And it’s been an absolutely incredible experience, definitely, I would recommend it to anybody.

Shelley And then she even let me mail packages and was so open. And she didn’t realize what she was getting herself in for but she was so good about picking things up and texting. We communicated all the ways you could possibly communicate and she just really put me at ease and I felt like when people would talk to me, I didn’t feel stress at all.

Sean: A great sense of humor….that’s important!

Shelley It was an amazing experience!

Sean: Aloha!

Review From "The Knot":

I cannot say enough good things about Leah and Island Wedding Memories. Everything about the day was perfect, and I am not a mushy sentimental type. My husband and I decided to elope in Hawaii at the last minute, and Leah pulled everything together in about a week! I loved my vendors, my hair and makeup looked great (to the point where my mom joked that no one would recognize me because I looked that good), and my video and photography were absolutely stunning. She customized our wedding package so I got only the things we needed for our intimate ceremony, made reservations for us for dinner afterwards, and even saved the day with a powerbar to keep me from passing out (Brides! Please eat enough before your wedding). I would recommend this vendor to anyone getting married on Maui!

Every email or phone call that I made or sent was answered immediately. I always had information. I never felt like there was anything that was out of control or anything I didn’t know that was going to happen. And it’s just been a wonderful experience. This is absolutely beautiful out here. You have the freedom to do the wedding that you want to do and make it be exactly what you want. So I very highly recommend it!

What a beautiful experience! Leah is the best and I'm so happy we chose Island Wedding Memories. We live in Virginia and once we decided upon a destination wedding in Maui, I knew I needed to hire a wedding planner. The time difference alone would have been a major handicap to planning the wedding myself. I chose Leah after extensively reading any and all reviews I could find. She was responsive throughout the planning process and the wedding was perfectly executed. Everything about the experience was picture perfect. Even though our wedding was small (just the two of us) and I didn't add a lot of al a carte services, I would have been stressed planning the wedding. I have a Type A stressful personality and Leah is the classic Type B....laid back and calming. It was a great match. Bonus: Leah ordered perfect weather for us. :)

Review From "The Knot":

We were married in West Maui at Merrimens in Kapalua. Leah offered this venue on her website. i was very happy to find a place that was not on the beach and offered a private ceremony. Leah was also my florist and my flowers were breathtaking!! they were so fragrant and one of my favorite items. Leah's vendors were all so professional and very good. The value that her wedding package was fantastic and very affordable for a couple that is hard working and saving. i was appreciative for her assistance and guidance at the ceremony. i would recommend her anyone who is having a wedding in Maui, Hi

Leah Robb was amazing! From the moment we spoke with her, we felt very comfortable working with her. She immediately eased our anxiety about planning a wedding from afar. Leah will respond to your questions quickly. She will point you in the right direction in finding everything from a minister, to a photographer, to a makeup artist. Her recommendations are spot on! She arranged for us to have a private ceremony on a gorgeous beach that was secluded from others. She ensured our wedding was perfect and for that, we are forever grateful! You will not find a better planner in Maui! Thanks again Leah! Tonia & Antonio.

Leah,

Thank you SO much for everything again. We will definitely recommend you to anyone we come across that wants to get married in Hawaii. You made sure our day was perfect and stress free! I can't imagine how we would've planned a ceremony from NC without you!

We chose Leah after a Google search showed that she had the best package for what we needed. (We eloped and thus didn't want something huge, just enough to share our love with each other with sand between our toes and sun on our faces.) Leah remained in contact with me over the 4 or so months that we planned our wedding, and it was quite possibly the easiest thing ever: we flew in, drove to sign our marriage license in front of the nicest lady, then the next day we walked from our hotel, got married on the beach, and walked back done. Leah was amazing.

Working with Leah was a breeze! She was very flexible and friendly and completely dedicated to fulfilling all my beach wedding dreams! She is very knowledgeable of the Island and is more than happy to answer questions and offer advice above and beyond your wedding plans. She truly works to ensure you have the most memorable wedding AND trip to Maui possible!

She helped us choose Mokapu Beach for our wedding location, which was more private and beautiful than I could have hoped for. We had Kale the preacher do a traditional Hawaiian style wedding ceremony, (also recommended by Leah) which fit perfectly with our desires to immerse ourselves in the culture, while still holding true to traditional wedding honors. On top of all this, the best part was how easy it all was... for me anyways. ;)

Leah allowed me to express to her exactly what we were looking for, what I saw in my head, and she made it happen. Called to ask a question or two about a detail choice here and there, and ABRA CADABRA my dreams were made a reality. Just like your fairy Godmother, for your wedding. :)

If you are looking for an easy to work with, truly dedicated Wedding Coordinator for your Hawaiian Wedding or Vow Renewal, Look no more. Check out her site (which is also incredible) and give her a call. You'll be glad you did.

Review From "Wedding Wire":

We were very happy with Leah and Island Wedding Memories! Leah really made the destination wedding planning process stress free with prompt phone calls and emails and by coordinating all of our services for us. I was really impressed by the professionalism, talent and kindness of everyone we encountered- from the make up artist (my makeup was SO pretty and seriously lasted all day rain and all), hairstylist, minister, photographer (Anna Kim Photography), flowers (beautiful bouquet arrangement and Gardenia flowers to put in my hair-both chosen by Leah), to the clerk at wedding license appointment-all of who were set up by Leah. Leah was fantastic, she kept everything very organized days leading up to the wedding and she was very flexible and we felt she really cared and wanted to make our day everything we hoped it would be. For instance, 10 minutes before our wedding ceremony was scheduled to start, Leah (who was soaking wet and holding the umbrella she brought for me-I told you she was awesome) wanted to know if we wanted to drive south to a different beach because it was raining and windy at our beach location. I did not want to change beach locations (I was okay with a little rain on this beautiful beach in Maui as long as my husband to be and guests were). But the fact that she was willing to do this was appreciated. We would highly recommend Leah and Island Wedding Memories. Mahalo, Becky and Mike

Leah was sensational! Professional and kind right from our first conversation! She was so prompt in replying to me! She would always get right back to me even with 3 hour’s time difference, that truly put me at ease and I felt total trust and confidence she would have everything run smoothly and do whatever it takes for that to happen! I know she had many other brides and weddings she was working on, but I always felt like I was the only one!

She was highly recommended by a co-worker of my husband. I had looked online and had talked to several wedding coordinators that were alright, but I just didn’t feel comfortable with any of them! This is one of my favorite things about Leah: she planned my husband’s coworkers wedding over 20 years ago, and Nicole (my husband’s coworker) said did such an amazing job, made her special day perfect! And the fact that when I mentioned it to Leah, she remembered her bride Nicole and I was like WOW, look at that personal touch for her to still remember all her brides, even one over 20 years ago!

Leah completely knocked all the other wedding planners out of the water. As soon as I got off of the phone with her, I called my husband and told him, nice work babe! She is amazing and can’t wait for her to plan our wedding! Also, I wasn’t used to someone saying to me “sure whatever you would like we will make it just what you have always envisioned” Leah made me feel like a true princess, she went above and beyond, and was attentive to my absolute every need and request! She is top notch, I recommend her to anyone!

Honestly, if you have questions or want to hear directly from a source and besides reading online, feel free to contact me anytime! I am happy to recommend Leah or answer any questions in a heartbeat! My name is Amber and my email is: ajcurtis1019@yahoo.com. Many, many mahalos!

Leah (& all of her helpers) was really all you could want in a wedding planner. She was well organized from beginning to end, and I felt very confident that everything would be perfect for our special day. She did not disappoint - many of our guests commented that it was the best wedding they had ever been to, and my bridal party commented on how great of a planner she was. I was actually ready with nothing to do 2.5 hours before my ceremony!! She organized and put on the best day of our lives - and there is no way I could have done it without her. I would recommend Leah to any bride planning a Maui wedding!

ALSO

Review From "Wedding Wire"

Leah (& Island Wedding Memories) did an amazing job from start to finish. Leah was extremely well organized, and made planning so easy. I was kept in the loop the entire year leading up to the wedding, and never once had a worry. The day (& week) of the wedding was stress free, and the wedding day was perfect. I was able to enjoy every aspect of the day. Our guests commented that our wedding was the best wedding they had ever been to - Leah can take all the credit!!

Leah,

I simply cannot thank you enough for our wonderful day. We had a BLAST and a much better time than we could have even expected! Kimo was incredible, put us at ease and we loved him. The guitar player was amazing and made the day even more special! Jessica was wonderful as well!! You were just precious and we adored you! I could tell you knew what you were doing!

The day was epic beyond and to top it all off, you totally made our night by doing the dinner reservations. We LOVED the Grand Wailea and as it turned out, they had Fernando Botero sculptures (whom Tim is fascinated by and even wrote a paper on once). So we were in heaven. Absolutely perfect! The food was amazing! We had to go home and change first as the dress got soaked and filthy and we climbed out onto the rocks for more epic photos! YAY! Loved every second of it all!

Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts! Have a great weekend!

To whom it may concern,

If you are considering hiring Island Wedding Memories for your wedding, do not hesitate a moment longer! Working with Leah Robb has been such an easy, stress-free experience! Leah was very friendly and professional, getting back to me with any questions or concerns within one day, even while she was on vacation! Other companies didn’t even get back to my initial inquiries for weeks.

Planning a wedding from afar can be very nerve wracking, but Leah always put my mind at ease. She can handle as little or as much as you need her too and is ready to make vendor recommendations if needed. We planned our wedding on short notice, which was no problem for Leah, who got started booking our vendors the same day the deposit was received, which was also the day before her wedding anniversary cruise!!!

I was truly impressed with Island Wedding Memories and Leah Robb and I would recommend her to anyone!

Sincerely,
Felicia Decker, Bride

Review From "Wedding Wire" and "The Knot": Leah Robb of Island Wedding Memories truly made our day perfect! We had 30 people including our wedding party travel from across Canada to the beautiful island of Maui for our wedding. We had never been to Maui, and had through the Island Wedding Memories website and communications with Leah made all the arrangements sight unseen. The day of the wedding I was the most stress free bride I've ever known. I had a swim in the ocean followed by hair, makeup, cake delivery....everything went like clockwork! The Ceremony was incredible, and the photography/videography to complement our day could not have been any more stunning had they been cut from a magazine! I would not have changed a thing! Once the ceremony was over my guests could not stop complimenting the most beautiful and moving wedding they had ever attended and many expressed that they wished they had done this exact same thing. I would recommend Leah and her expertise to anyone who dreams of a wedding in paradise. She makes her job seem easy which I guarantee it is not, and takes all the planning and leg work worry away from the Bride and Groom so that they can enjoy every minute of their special day together! Thank you again Leah, you're the best!

I have zero complaints about my wedding in Hawaii!!! I was married April 25, 2013 on Secret cove beach in Maui, Hawaii. A year before my wedding we decided we wanted to get married in Hawaii. I spent a lot of time on the internet researching wedding planners as we were in Canada and were worried about the distance and the planning. After narrowing it down to four different companies. Leah at Island wedding Memories was the only one to get back to me right away with email questions and phone calls. She answered all of my questions. There was a time difference but I never had to wait more then a day to hear back from her at most.

She made me feel very comfortable. She gave me ideas and was open to my ideas. I did make additions to my wedding package closer to the wedding with no problem. Leah was very friendly and comfortable to talk to. We met with her a couple days before the wedding at the site and she was very helpful.

We decided to have a circle of flowers to stand in for the ceremony that matched my bouquet. (voodoo roses, sonia thai and green dendrobium orchids and ivory) Kimo was our minister. He was great. Made us feel comfortable and made us laugh. My hair and makeup were done at 5am lol…. I decided on a morning wedding so I would beat the crowds to the beach for the ceremony and was able to go to a luau for the reception!! The girls were great even though I made them get up so early. They did an awesome job and would recommend them.

We decided to go with Olanani Videography to film our wedding. She was awesome. She came to our condo before hand to film both my husband and I. She filmed the wedding and then she filmed after the wedding while we had our photos taken. She also stayed after the photos to get couple more shots of us. We provided her three songs for our video and it turned out amazing… very happy I decided to do this. We showed the video at our reception when we returned and everyone loved it..

Our cake was amazing. Our cake was dark chocolate with vanilla and Lilikoi filling with chocolate buttercream frosting. Leah boxed up the left overs to bring back to condo for us. I do not remember the name of our singer but everyone was giving him compliments. He had a great voice. Great idea to have him.

Leah was waiting for us at the beach the morning of the wedding. She got there early to save us the best spot on the beach. We had a party of 18 in total and the beach was perfect. We couldn't have asked for better weather.

I am so happy with my decision to go with Leah. She is a wonderful person and one day I plan to return to renew my my vows with her help. Even being so far away I had great trust in her to pull it off and she did. After the wedding we returned to our condo for lunch and then enjoyed an awesome luau at the Marriott. I would highly recommend it for your reception or just a night out. The show was awesome. You look out to the ocean with a beautiful sunset and we enjoyed great food. We reserved a head of time and got front row seats for us and our guests.

Thank you Leah for a great wedding.

Hi Leah

Thank you so much for everything that you did in helping us celebrate our special day, you were a huge part in every detail of it and it was beautiful and amazing. You put so much time and effort into making the whole day stress free for me and Jon I really do appreciate that and couldn’t of asked for a better wedding planner. I want to say a really special thank you to you Leah for our wedding rehearsal dinner at the Old Lahaina Luau being able to squeeze in our three extra guests. It was Jon and I's first time to Hawaii and we absolutely fell in love with Maui, the place, people atmosphere and the weather and will definitely be coming back again hopefully for an anniversary!

Dear Leah

We are now back to reality, and wishing we were still in Maui!

We wanted to thank you again properly for all your help in organizing our big day. You were so helpful throughout the whole process, allowing us to follow our original plans while also pointing out things that we had missed or that would enhance the day. It all went better than we could possibly have imagined; the weather, the flowers, the limo! I must say the flowers blew me away, and you managed to get my bouquet spot on which I imagine wasn't easy as I didn't even know exactly what I wanted! I have had so many compliments on it in from the photos.

Thank you so much again for all your hard work, and here are a few photos from the day!

Mahalo!

Aloha Leah,

I wanted to touch base with you to let you know how much we appreciated everything you did for us in getting our wedding put together. It was wonderful, and you were a pleasure to work with and so very nice to deal with personally as well.

We will always remember the kindness and consideration you gave us in getting our wedding executed. I can’t possibly say enough about all of the help you offered and the way you pulled this off.

You did an extraordinary job for us. I know this was just a small ticket wedding for you, and that in the grand scheme of things it was not a very big deal. For Retha and I this was the biggest day of our lives and you made it seem as though you cared as much as we did. That is priceless. You are very good at what you do and if there is ever an opportunity for me to offer a recommendation or anything that might be of use to you please do not hesitate to call on me. I am forever in your debt. Retha and I will never forget you and how very special your efforts made this wonderful day for us.

God bless you and keep you always.

Best regards and ‘Mahalo’!

Leah,

Jonah and I are so thankful for you and your talented vendors, as we truly had the wedding of our dreams. We felt so calm and relaxed the entire evening, as you and your staff made it the most memorable day of our lives. Please extend our sincere thanks to Angie (lady in waiting), Leah (makeup), Eboni (hair), catering staff, bar staff, DJ Dan, Donna, Robert & Mary at Olanani, shave ice truck staff, and everyone else behind the scenes we forgot to mention, but contributed in a big way. Every day, we just keep playing the entire day over and over again in our heads, smiling and enjoying every part of our wedding. A big thank you to you, Leah. We couldn’t have done this without your creative vision and professionalism. We had so much fun. We’ll talk soon….

Love Always,

As a wedding DJ here on Maui I am fortunate enough to work with the best of the best! So when my wife and I got married in December, we were able to hand select the vendors we knew where the best. Leah Robb and Island Wedding Memories were the very first ones we chose. Having worked with her I knew her attention to detail and her high level of professionalism. I also knew it was going to be fun! Again, I have a unique perspective of working directly with many coordinators on Maui. There was no second guessing on our choice of Island Wedding Memories. It was a surreal experience for me to be a groom instead of a vendor/DJ but Leah made it so comfortable for us. We were thrilled to have her team there for us and I am always excited to work with her too. Make a great choice, Leah Robb and Island Wedding Memories!

Review From "Wedding Wire"

As a wedding vendor myself here on Maui, I know who the best of the best are. Having worked with Island Wedding Memories in the past, they were the logical choice for my own wedding. I trust their attention to detail, their commitment to quality and the ability to make it fun for all involved. Again, as a wedding professional, I know quality and my expectations are high. Leah and her team exceeded the standard and made our day so memorable! We love them!!!

She did tell me that she was late for the ceremony. But she said you made everything run seamless without a hitch. So thank you so much for your awesome service. Thanks so much!

Crystal: Hi! I’m Crystal Pearson.

Nick: And I’m Nick.

Nick: We wanted to say how amazing Leah is. We were married here a year ago, October 6, 2012. Now we are back at another beautiful wedding she has put on. We recommended her to our friends and yet another triumph we are attending.

Crystal: It’s a beautiful location and attention to detail.

Nick: She will be there as much or as little as you need. She will answer absolutely every question you could possibly think of.

Crystal: Even if you ask the same question 17 or 18 times.

Nick: 17 or 18 times….

Nick: And another thing, we aren’t the richest people in the universe, so Leah really helped us out by working within our budget.

Crystal: But not skimping

Nick: Not skimping. The detail was there, it was fantastic, and it was a great day.

Crystal: The options were abundant.

Nick: It didn’t look like we…

Crystal: ….were on a budget. It looked like a $50,000 wedding….

Nick: Exactly! Which was fantastic ….

Crystal: It was good.

Crystal: Thank you Leah!

Crystal: We loved our wedding and it was mostly because of Leah’s hard work.

Nick: Yes! We highly recommend her……

Aloha Leah!

We have been happily married for 1 month now. How much can I thank you for helping us have the wedding of our dreams?! Everything about the trip was absolutely flawless and magical.

Mokapu beach was a great site and the sunset was perfect. The whole wedding was like a fantasy come true.

Having the hair stylist and the make-up artist come to my parents condo was such a luxury. They were fantastic. You being able to create the bouquet I wanted . . . amazing. The photographers were great to work with as well.

I absolutely LOVED the officiate and the ukelele player added the perfect Hawaiian touch.

There was not one thing I would ever change and I was stress-free the entire time! You did a great job of organizing everything and we are so appreciative of the work you did for us. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of Maui and our wonderful wedding. It was everything I could have ever imagined and it was most certainly the trip / time of our lives.

I will most definitely spread the word about your company to any of my friends that are thinking about a destination wedding. We will also contact you when we have to come back to Maui to renew our vows :o)

Thanks again times a million. I wish I could relive the whole time over and over again. Thank goodness for all the wonderful pictures and video. YOU ARE THE BEST!

Many Mahalo's,

Hi Leah,

I have to thank you again for making all the arrangements and providing the leis and beautiful bridal bouquet. As mainlanders, we wouldn't have been able to pull this together without your expertise. Marvin's sweet and gentle ukelele music contributed to the bridal atmosphere, and Rev. Gomes's powerful delivery of the Hawaiian ceremony struck just the right note, too. All we had to do was show up and enjoy this special moment.

Review From "Wedding Wire":

We loved Island Wedding Memories, they made our dream wedding a reality and cannot rave about them enough!! We knew what we wanted for our wedding, but was overwhelmed and had no idea where to start. Calling Leah was the BEST thing we ever did. She took care of everything, listened to the style and feel of what we wanted and helped bring it to life. Her professionalism, attention to detail and uncanny sense of being able to put you at ease knowing exactly what we needed and wanted was truly amazing. I tell all my friends if your getting married on Maui, definitely call them first you'll be so thankful you did!! -Mr. & Mrs. Jeff Carlson

Thank you so much for all the hard work you did to make Katie and Ryan’s wedding perfect. I have never seen my daughter as happy as I did that day. She truly glowed…what a gift to my heart. From the canopy to the music, the beauty of the flowers and delicious food, it all was awesome.

BUT…YOU, my dear, were my angel. YOU made my day stress free….even bringing me a drink when the ceremony was over. I know I was an emotional mom, but this day was one I dreamed of from the day my daughter was born. She had a great time and it will be a day they will always look back on with love.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you!

Dear Leah,

I don't suppose you receive very many letters from the mother of the groom ,but I wanted to take this opportunity to thank -you for coordinating such a beautiful day for Ryan and Lindsay, making their special day so memorable for them but also all of the guests whom attended. You have a special job which I am sure requires many long hours of work, but just think how many hours of enjoyment you are bringing to people in your quest to make their dreams come true on this, their wedding day. We will always treasure our time spent on Maui. It truly is paradise. We will remember with fondness the flawless warm days on the island as we come from a part of Canada (Saskatchewan), WHERE THE TEMPERATURE RIGHT NOW IS 30-35 Degrees below zero. To think that a mere month ago we were basking in the sun having the time of our lives. This was our first time in Maui but it wont be our last. We are in a Maui state of mind. Continued success in your family business.

Mahalo, Aloha, and All the Best!!!

Aloha Leah!

Thank you so incredibly much for a wedding that was far beyond anything we could have imagined!! It was perfection! You of course were a dream coordinator, wow! You are a true wedding expert and professional! Olowalu Plantation Estate was a correct and absolutely perfect site for us. The people that you surround yourself were top notch too! We were impressed by everyone that you chose to work with you. The photographers, Robert and Mary from Olanani were fabulous! Dan the DJ was right on, the entire evening! (We loved that he has family, that is in the airline world too!) Levi and the bar setup were perfect, Lizzie, hair, makeup, food, the service staff etc....all just fantastic!! Each of them were extremely attentive, to us and all of our guests!

We have been getting lots of emails with pictures from November 5th from our friends and family! Everyone had a wonderful time! The night of the wedding, the days after and even yesterday....still getting told by many guests that it was, "The Best Wedding Ever!!!!!".  Thanks to YOU, Leah!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!

Jaime said he is still laughing about being chased around by you and the staff for the groom to eat his cake!!! I wish I could have seen that!!

Mahalo for everything!

Love,

Aloha!!! Happy New Year!!! We hope your holidays were wonderful!!! Jaime and I are great and still with HUGE smiles on our faces, as a result of an incredible wedding!!! We received so many compliments that it was, " The best wedding ever!", or our favorite from our world traveler friend Estelle, " It was the wedding of the century!" What a hoot the comments were, and we defer alllll compliments to you Leah!! We had nothing to do with it, by choice!! Thankfully you are a rockstar and ran with our, "designers choice" on everything!!!! LOL!
My sister Julie said to send you a hug! Robert and Mary's pics were spectacular, I mean.... Really amazing!!! Video... Wow, can't believe I was worried about spending money on it, we have watched it a zillion times!! Incredible!!

My parents, Jaime and I, and his patents, continue to smile when we see the pics and think about November 5th. You operate a top notch business, my dear! Truly dreamlike wedding week. When people ask me about it, two words always fly out of my mouth, magical and dreamy.

Happy 2012! Thank you for making 2011 the most incredible year ever!

Much Love,

Review From "Wedding Wire":

Leah Robb and her company are dream to work with! Our wedding was stunning and dreamy due to her 100% fabulous coordination of absolutely everything! The professionalism and organizational skills in her wedding planning is amazing. On our wedding day I walked into the Olowalu Plantation House and my wedding gown was hanging and ready to go, hair and makeup artists arrived and the fun and relaxing preparations began... Thanks to Leah and her team. We asked her to surprise us with the flowers, my bouquet, the table design, and many other elements and we were thrilled the results. We recommend Island Wedding Memories for every detail of your big day, it will be a true pleasure planning your day.

Aloha Leah,

When we began this whole process of planning a destination wedding, we did not have the slightest clue where to begin. We knew that we wanted to have it on the island of Maui but deciding on the location/venue, the minister, flowers, décor, photographer, and many other factors that are involved in planning a wedding started to become overwhelming. It was scary to do a destination wedding and make plans never having seen the place or venues. I have to say we had gotten real nervous wondering if the places will be nice enough, if the food would be good enough, and all the typical things that go through your head. Would my makeup be ok or the stylist really know how to do MY hair right but you always told me not to worry and that it would go fine and always managed to keep me calm when i was a mess. Even after the tsunami you still said the weather is fine and not to worry even if I read the weather reports and it said it would be not that great. So when it all came down to THE day you were RIGHT!!!

Thanks through the blessing of God we were referred to go to you and your wedding planning business by some friends of ours and let us say WOW!!! Your guidance through the whole process leading up to the day of the wedding was phenomenal. You were available when we needed your advice, the way you put certain situations in a different perspective, guiding us with whatever was going through our minds, and to many other issues and factors that lead to our dream wedding.

The day could not have been any better than what we have imagined. It was beautiful, sunny, hot, and the setting at Gannon’s just made it overflowing. We knew once we saw the grounds that we were so excited that we went with your recommendation. The venue was even more beautiful than we thought it would be the food was sooo delicious at Gannon's, and everything turned out amazing! It was absolutely breath-taking and the way the whole ceremony turned out it was a dream come true. It was so amazing that we did not want the day to end. It literally felt like we were the stars of the world based on the way how everything turned out for us and our party.

Leah, you picked the perfect location for us and at that time of year had recommended to stay in the south end because the weather would be better. I had never stayed down at that end and I have to say I LOVED IT!!! Thank you so much Leah for all the work you do at keeping us in our budget and getting our dream come true wedding and keeping the crazy bride as calm as you can!

Leah, you did a stunning and marvelous job planning our dream wedding that words cannot begin to describe the real feeling. We will definitely love to do business with you again sometime down the road when we come across the path of renewing our vowels. Also we will be honored to recommend future couples who are looking to get married on the island of Maui to go through you because of your hard work, dedication, and heart-warming attitude to planning their wedding. Thank you very much Leah from the Jenkins family and our party for making it such an exciting wedding.

We have just returned back from our Honeymoon and have been reflecting on what a wonderful job that you did for us on our Wedding Day. From beginning to end you have been patient, passionate, encouraging and just brilliant! The day worked out so perfectly for us and we know that everyone enjoyed the day immensely! The flowers were absolutely gorgeous, everything matching so brilliantly with our wedding colours. We just wanted to take the flowers back home with us, they were just so lovely! The wedding arch, the scattered petals, the tent, the food, the cake, the entertainment were just so perfect, you did such an amazing job, and we can’t thank you enough for making our wedding day both enjoyable and so memorable for us and our families for many many years to come!!

Thank you so much Leah! We and our families wish you and your family all the very best. May you always be happy, healthy and prosperous!

All Our Love,

And.....

Dear Leah,

I was one bridesmaids in Julia’s & Ben’s wedding on 13th of January 2011.

I was thinking about the wedding and the time in Maui and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you personally for making the day for Julia, Ben and their guests extra special. We all had a such beautiful day and wonderful time while we were over there. I also loved chatting with you when we had the opportunity and learning about the island and its customs. I often mention your kindness and hospitability to my friends and family when I talk about the wedding. Everyone was just so great and kind and welcomed us with open arms and what better way to visit a foreign country and have the memories of not just the country but the people who have crossed our paths (which I hope cross again at some point in the future). I wish you all the best from all my heart and once again many thanks for being so lovely.

Kind regards Olya

The flowers were gorgeous and we are still enjoying them. The officiate was marvelous and really gave meaning to the wedding ceremony. We all were touched by his words. I am anxious to see the pictures because the scene was just wonderful. I am glad we chose Gannon's because we had a great time and the food was to die for.

All of your recommendations were spot on and I can't thank you enough for helping us to make this a memorable trip. I realize you work with much bigger budget wedding but you really helped to make our simple family wedding superb.

Your beautiful little touches MADE my pictures, I'm going to email a few to you...I think you should update your website and put them in...because they just captured your craftiness and attention to detail and color...just sayin'

Anyways, thank you for everything...I will always have good things to tell others about your business.

Dearest Leah,

It's been over 5 months since our wedding in Maui and there is never a time when we don't reminisce of our special day. We will forever be grateful for your remarkable work! From our spectacular ceremony site at Mokapu Beach, to our breathtaking views from Gannon’s, to the stunning floral arrangements, to Kimo our easy-going and enjoyable officiate, to the soothing voice of our guitarist Jamie Lawrence, and our wonderful DJ, Dan. There are not enough words to convey how truly exceptional we felt on our wedding day because of YOU. You are definitely talented! You made the process of wedding planning from miles away less stressful and comforting, especially when my “freak-out” moments took the best of me. Continue doing the amazing work you do.

Mahalo,
Cheryl and Tino Cruz

PS. Thank you for our wedding CD. It will be treasured forever…

Showers

Dearest Leah,

How do I even begin to thank you for the absolutely perfect wedding day you created for my husband and I? It is a scary thing to decide to get married in a foreign place that is completely unfamiliar and even scarier to put your trust into someone you don't know to help you plan it.

There are hundreds of wedding planners out there on the internet and it can be overwhelming to try and choose one but what really drew us to you was your honesty. Your website had tons of testimonials from past couples and that showed us you had nothing to hide, you do good work! Then, when I called you on the phone for the first time, you spent a good hour speaking to me and I felt like I was chatting away to one of my girlfriends, it just felt easy and from then, I knew you were the right choice.

You made the process easy, guiding us when necessary and fighting for us when needed. Most importantly though, you brought our vision to life and we will forever be thankful to you for that. As you know, a girl's wedding day is a major event in her life and after I met my husband, I spent months and months imagining what it would be like, right down to the tiniest detail. All of my expectations were exceeded when it finally happened! It was exactly as I had dreamed and more! Not only was it beautiful but it was one of the most stress-free days of my life! I knew I didn't have to worry about a thing because I knew you were there and you would handle everything. That left me with the opportunity to just sit back and relax and enjoy the best day of my life...and I did!

So, thank you Leah, from the bottom our hearts. You do amazing work and anyone who chooses you as their planner will be lucky to have you! We will always remember you! Thanks again!!

Dear Leah,

This is just to inform you, that there is a parcel on its way to you. I sent it on December 9th and hope it will arrive before Christmas.

I apologize for not having contacted at an earlier time. But I kept thinking of you and did not forget you.

I hope you and your family is well and enjoying the Hawaiian weather. At present in Germany we have loads of snow. Trevor would love it. As for me, I like winter with snow better than without. Snow makes the world look clean and peaceful.

I like to thank you for your perfect organization of our wedding. We could not have found someone better than you. Thanks.

Have a nice Christmas Season. Aloha and Mahalo,

Hi Leah,

Chris and I were very happy with the wedding. Kimo was fantastic! Jamie Lawrence was great! The flowers were absolutely amazing (exactly what I wanted...like you are a mind reader because I don't feel I gave you much information to work with). We loved the location of the wedding with the rocks and the waves in the background. I saw some of the pictures that our friends and families had taken and they look wonderful. Our limo driver was also amazing. He was so kind, considerate and hospitable. The girls really enjoyed the limo transportation from the hotel to the ceremony location. He was even nice enough to take some pictures of all of us with my sister's camera. It was a lot of fun...just what we wanted!

I also wanted to tell you that working with the lovely lady at the Marriage License place was fantastic. (I apologize, because I can't remember her name right now). She has a wonderful spirit and a true gift for working with people who may be a bit on the nervous side as their big day approaches. She was so informative, and made us feel right at home in her office. Please relay the message that Chris and I really appreciated all her help with documentation, information about places to see and eat while staying in Maui, her kind smiles and her very enthusiastic, positive attitude. It was an absolute treat working with her!

At last but certainly not least, thank you for making our day very very special. There were a couple of times when my mother would ask me questions like "when does your bouquet arrive", "how will we know where to meet you" and I would panic for one second and then say " Leah will tell us when we get there, don't worry about it".... And I was right! Even when I forgot to tell you we had people standing up for us, you just fixed it! (and I sincerely apologize for that!) Thank you, thank you, thank you. Our day was perfect, and it was a pleasure working with you. Because of you, I was able to just enjoy getting married without the worries and the stress, which means alot.

Again, Thank you so much for planning our wedding. We are very grateful and we had an amazing time!

Your assistance was invaluable! It was so nice to be able to relax and enjoy our holiday, even the days right before the wedding, as I knew you had everything taken care of. Our day was absolutely amazing, including the stunning location on the beach right beside the water! Tad Craig was the perfect choice for our photographer, and our dinner at Tommy Bahama's was top notch! What more can we say, except many mahalo's for creating our perfect island wedding memory!

We just celebrated our four anniversary last week and still tell everyone that will listen how amazing, simple and reasonably priced our wedding was in 2009. We have visited Maui every year since 2008 and looking forward to our 14 day holiday in December this year. Thank you Leah! Love Denise & Carl, Vancouver Canada

It's been nearly 6 1/2 years since our wedding in 03 and we were watching the video this morning with our two boys. I just wanted to drop you a line again and say thanks again for how special everything turned out. "The Gang" (our group of friends) still talks about how wonderful the wedding & reception were! I hope that someday Michelle (one of the catering staff) will know how much her impromptu dance meant to us! Thank you again for the years of memories and I wish you and your family as much happiness as you have brought to those you've helped!

Hi Leah,

Jill and I just wanted to tell you what an incredible time we had at our wedding and it was truly all because of you. Jill and I were so worried about trying to plan a wedding from so far away but your attention to detail and ease to work with made everything so simple for us from start to finish. As we arrived at the wedding and saw everything you had put together and we were speechless. The decor, the location itself, the tables, the ceremony area, the cake, the beautiful florals you created, all came together to make such an amazing experience. So many of our guests have told us that this was the best weddings they had ever been to. Our friends Gary and Beth who had gotten married in Maui also a couple years ago even went as far as to say they wished they had you plan their wedding also. Putting this incredible event together and staying within the budget we had allotted makes it even that much more amazing.

I also wanted to thank you for all you did above and beyond the actual wedding day. All of the other events and activities you planned for us were a big hit with everyone. The snorkel trip, the sunset dinner at 5 Palms and especially the rehearsal dinner party. What a great idea to have a hula dancer and cater a luau style dinner right at the place we were staying.

Jill and I are your lifelong advocates and talk about you and the incredible job you did to anyone we can. Thanks again for creating such a memorable wedding for us.

Hi Leah

Now, to thank YOU! Once the wedding happened, we began pictures, bid you a very fast goodbye and it was done. So, I want to make sure that you know how beyond incredible our wedding day was for Brian and I.

From start (first phone call) to the last bite we stuffed ourselves with at our Tommy's reception, you MADE our day EXACTLY what we had hoped for. As a bride, I have to say thank you for answering every phone call, even when you were in the middle of 4 events in one weekend :). Thank you for listening to my indecision and offering fabulous advice. Thank you for making it work with our pastor. Thank you for pinning that gardenia in my hair as many times as the wind would blow it out--ha! Thank you for choosing Tommy's (that's so us!)...I'm not kidding...start to finish, it was the best of what I imagined it could be...and then it was even better!

Every bride dreams of a flawless and perfect wedding day to remember forever, and I feel like I got mine :). I will also say a thank you for Brian because he was just thrilled with everything and so pleased that every time he had a question, you had an answer. ;)

Bottom line is, we are so blessed to have been referred to you. You were amazing to work with, fun to talk to on the phone--sometimes 5 times a day. We look back and just feel like it was perfect, so THANK YOU! from both of us. We've already referred you to our friends who are getting married this year :) (Oooh! Maybe we'll be back!?) :D

A Thousand Mahalos!!

Kimo was great and added a real Hawaiian touch to the ceremony. I can't believe I contacted you from your website, totally unknown to me, and you coordinated everything from the marriage license, makeup artist, the minister, the bridal bouquet and the professional photographer without a hitch!

Thank you so much, Charles and Debbie

Rob and I wanted to take a moment to thank you for helping make our special day so perfect. Everything exceeded our expectations and it was the wedding of our dreams! With us living in Arizona and so many things going on in our personal lives, you helped make the wedding planning a smooth transition.

The Honua Kai Lani Estate was so much more breathtaking than the online pictures on your website. We have already received the DVD video of our wedding (which was really wonderful) and the estate made for gorgeous backgrounds. We cannot wait to see the pictures!! The food was EXCELLENT! Cafe Ole' did an amazing job and we were very impressed. The cake was absolutely delicious, which worked out great because the first time we tasted it was when we were feeding it to each other at the reception! The one regret I have is not having a second piece. The flower leis and bouquets you made us were stunning. The centerpieces were beautiful and we wanted to say thank you for providing our little sweetheart table during the dinner. The reception would not have been as great as it was without the DJ. His song selections were fantastic and he had everyone dancing the entire evening. He even played our college theme song which was very clever of him because we had friends and family from a rival college at the wedding. It made for some great laughs. He was VERY entertaining and made the ambiance a lot of fun.

Leah, THANK YOU for everything you did. It was a magical day that we will remember for the rest of our lives and we are so grateful that you made it all happen for us.

Cheers, Rob and Liana Assenmacher

George of course took wonderful pictures and the Sea Watch restaurant dinner was memorable. The cake was beautiful and delicious.

Overall everyone at the wedding felt it was incredible. Thank you for all that you did. The CD you sent will be listened to often as a reminder of our special day.

Hi Leah and Sandy,

I want to say a big Mahalo for arranging our wedding. Everything went exactly as we wanted. We could not have asked for a more beautiful morning and to have the beach to ourselves was great.

We had a lot of fun with Crystal taking the photos and our girls were well behaved playing on the beach. The flowers were beautiful and the butterfly's were magical. The Feast at Lele was excellent entertainment and the food was delicious and plentiful. (They brought enough for 4 adults and the girls hardly ate anything - we walked out completely full-up) Also, Marty was very helpful with my hair and makeup at such an early time of the morning.

Thank you again for making our wedding day so beautiful. We are hoping to re-visit Hawaii and Maui again next year.

Kindest Regards

I want to say thank you for all your help for our June 8th wedding. The ceremony set up was so beautiful. Everything from the isle of rose petals, the alter, and the leis, everything was exactly what I had imagined in my mind. You were able to bring it to life for me. I especially loved my bouquet. It was perfect! When we got back from the wedding, I couldn’t stop bragging about how easy and stress free our day was; all thanks to you! All I had to do was show up and that’s what I wanted. We constantly get comments on our photos of how beautiful our ceremony was. Thank you so very much for all your hard work. I attached a few pictures for you. There were so many, it was difficult to choose.

Mahalo!

Aloha Leah!

We received the music CD, mahalo. We are missing Maui already. I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate everything you did to make our day special. We always knew we were getting married on a beach somewhere. We never could of imagined a more beautiful beach than Makena Surf Beach. Tad was great, we had a lot of fun taking the pictures and we will cherish every single one of them. The Seawatch was perfect for the reception. We felt like we were the only ones there, and the waiter, Jason, was very friendly. He had all of us laughing. He even gave Adam & me pointers on how to cut the cake. We would not have done anything different if had the chance. Again, thank you for your added touch to our special day.

Hello Leah,

Hope you do remember me. On behalf of Susanne and Rene I am supposed to send you a big thank you for all your support and help from Germany. We recently just had a big "after-the-wedding-in-Maui-party" and everybody envied them for having such a great wedding. A lot of people kept asking about how they arranged everything. And be sure we made a lot of advertisement for you. Once again " Vielen Dank für all Deine Unterstützung und die Liebe mit der Du alles vorbereitet hast ".

My apologies for not writing to you sooner. I wanted to say thank you for all of your help in planning our wedding. Everything was simply perfect and, looking back on it, we would not change a thing. While I realize your efforts in helping us with our wedding started long before our wedding day, I especially want to thank you for giving us the ability to simply enjoy our day. Having you there to ensure that everything went smoothly meant that Scott and I could truly enjoy ourselves with our family and friends on our wedding day without worrying about last minute details.

It was a pleasure working with you through the entire process. I appreciate the time, thought and effort that you put into your planning. Because of your efforts, our wedding was exactly what we hoped for. I wish all the best for you and your family. Take care.

Thank you,

Thanks for taking all the time, putting up with us (mostly me), to make our wedding one we will truly never forget. We wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend you to anyone else that plans on getting married in the most beautiful place in the world (MAUI).

Dear Leah,

I don't know where to begin in thanking you for making my wedding day so beautiful and perfect. You were so warm and welcoming and it made my day so much more special to feel like you were just part of the family.

When I received the phone call that it was raining on Makena, you simply said, just a little bump in the road, and that is exactly what it was. No big deal, wedding location changed, and it was even more perfect then expected.

Your flowers were beautiful, my bouquet and the arch, WOW, was amazing. Everyone just couldn't stop talking about how amazing the flowers were.

Coming to a place I had never been and literally doing everything via, internet pictures and emails the day turned out perfect. You had a great website that really gave me a true feeling for how the day was going to be. I feel like I went into the day just hoping that everything would turn out the way I envisioned it and it was beyond my expectations.

I promised a picture and this is just the first of many. My photographer is not quite done editing them all yet. I will send you one that I have. I think it's great because it shows your beautiful arch and Kimo. Who by the way was amazing! Everyone loved him too, especially grandpa.

My deepest thanks for making my dreams come true!

Andrew and I are so grateful for all the work you did to make our day so special. Instead of being consumed with all the details and overwhelmed with the list of things to do, my family and I were able to truly enjoy the day and experience it the way it is meant to be. I had complete faith in you and everything was done so beautifully. Throughout the whole planning process, corresponding with you from miles away was simple and you were so accurate and quick to respond.

It was such a pleasure and treat to deal with you as you are so sweet and genuine that it felt so good on the day of the wedding to leave everything to you and have Andrew and I really take in the moments of it all.

It touches me every time I look back at our photos and what a wonderful day it was.....all thanks to YOU!!!

Take care and all the best to you and your family.

Leah,

We just wanted to express our gratitude for everything that you did for Kevin and I. we received our photos and video and they were unbelievably beautiful, they would not have been without you. Everything from helping pick the perfect beach spot to making the beautiful wedding bouquets--it was perfect. Even when the wedding got started a little late you made sure everything fell into place. Even when there were worries that it could rain you calmed our fears. It made the biggest difference to have someone we could depend on to have everything perfect, especially since we were thousands of miles away in Ohio. Thank you so very much from the bottoms of our hearts for making our wedding the most beautiful and memorable we could ever imagine.

THANK YOU AGAIN, CRYSTAL AND KEVIN METZ

Hi Leah,

I'm not sure where to start our thank you. Arriving on Maui to the largest fire the island has seen, was a stressful start for us. Then finding out the fire was in the town that the wedding was to be in. A bit more stress. Then finding out the fire, after two days, hadn't stopped burning. And that the wedding was going to have to be moved. It was enough to brake all of us. Not once did you ever let Jake or I know how hard you were working to pull off this wedding. You made it all seem stress free. I don't know what we would have done without you. We are truly blessed to have found you. My guests couldn't stop complementing what a wonderful job you, your husband, and all of those involved did. Our friend even said," Someone's going to have to get married on the moon to top this wedding!" After talking to some locals, we were told that only a few could have pulled off what you did, and that you probably called in a ton of favors to do it. So THANK YOU LEAH! I'm honored that you called in favors to make our day happen. You've got some great people on your team, please thank them again for us.

Much love, Angela and Jake

Thank you so much for everything you coordinated from the minister, harpist, chairs, flowers, cider toast and especially the location South Maluaka Beach Park. We’ve had out photographs printed and the beach background is beautiful. Our guests were very impressed with the minister and harpist. It was such an emotional celebration for us and the family as you may remember our son could not contain himself. Our certificate will be proudly displayed along with our other 25th anniversary mementos. The flowers were so beautiful that I brought them back to California where I will dry them and include them in our scrap book. We appreciate all you did for our 25th wedding anniversary renewal June 25- 2007. Continued success in your business and prayers for you and your family and most of all your health!

We would like to thank you for everything you did to make our wedding stress free and memorable. We and all our guests had an amazing time! It was wonderful to finally meet you in person. We were very sorry you couldn't be there for the ceremony but Sandy did a great job at answering any questions we had regarding the wedding. Please also thank her two very adorable helpers. I was very nervous and their smiles were really calming to see right before the wedding ceremony. We would also like to mention how much we and the rest of the guests enjoyed our wedding officiate, he was a breathe of fresh air when it comes to wedding ceremonies. Everyone is still talking about how great he was at the ceremony! Thanks also for organizing all the wonderful women for our spa day and also a special thanks to my makeup and hair lady. She did an amazing job for someone who had just met me the day before! We also would like to let you know how much we both enjoyed George's pictures and his great sense of humor. We can't believe everyone we dealt with was so great! Wishing you all the best for your health and family.

We both felt like the wedding was perfect for us and exactly what we wanted. Thank you for making sure everything went smoothly. We hope to return for many anniversaries to come.

Hi Leah,

I wanted to echo my sentiments onto you as well. I know you’re probably swamped with a ton of weddings, so not even sure if you remember us ;-) Anyway, Tammy and I never got a chance to thank you for all your hard work. You truly made our wedding day the most special time of our lives. In fact, many of our guests commented that it was the best wedding they had ever attended (though I’m sure the location didn’t hurt!). We appreciated your professional, but very personal touch. And your attention to detail was absolutely immaculate. Again, I’m not sure if there’s anything that we would change. As with Tad, I would not hesitate to send any of our friends or family your way if they are planning a wedding or event in your neck of the woods. We will know that they will be in good hands.

Aloha Leah!

We wanted to thank you so much for helping arrange our Hawaiian wedding. Working with you in the months before our "big day" was lots of fun, and you totally put me at ease as we sorted out all the details. We felt so surrounded by love that day, not only with our family’s presence, but because of your attention, too.

Sometimes people we welcome into our lives are merely spectators, especially when you know they have many other weddings being planned at the same time as ours. You definitely became more that a spectator in our lives! We can't thank you enough for going that extra mile to make our wedding, and then our reception perfect. I really didn't expect you to shed blood for us! I do hope your finger is better now!!

I also don't know exactly what you did to hold the rains off until the next day, much less the 6.4 magnitude earthquake that welcomed us on our first morning as husband and wife! It certainly was a memorable time on Maui, many thanks to your effort to make October 14th very special. I nearly cried when we left Maui for our honeymoon on Big Island and realized I had to leave my GORGEOUS orchid bouquet behind!

Our honeymoon week on the Big Island was amazing, and I have decided that there really isn't a place anywhere on the islands of Hawaii not filled with Aloha, that sweet, genuine love for life and each other. Even the green sea turtles seem perfectly content with anyone swimming in their coves!

Todd and I are home in Alaska now, there is a foot of snow on the ground and negative temperatures, but the memories of that balmy evening at the Sunset Beach House still keep us warm.

I am writing to tell you THANK YOU !! I have to admit it was a little nerve racking to plan such an important day from thousands of miles away. However, I would do it all over again in a second as long as I had you to help me!

We had such an amazing time in Maui and our wedding was even more beautiful then I could have ever imagined. I was not stressed at all and everything was so perfect it was almost scary!! From the beach location to my beautiful Cali Lilly bouquet, my daughters basket, Jessie and George! I can ' t begin to thank you enough for everything you did for us and how easy you made everything. I also must say you left a HUGE impression on Emma she loved you too - thank you for helping to include her- I appreciate that a ton! The Butterflies were so much fun!- even if they went in Emma's hair! heheh. George got a great shot of that! We will always remember our beautiful wedding day and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Also, George did an AMAZING job , I think the last time we looked we had over 100 people take a look at our photos on-line all with the same jaw dropping response "OH MY! your pictures are gorgeous!!" He was a lot of fun and also made things comfortable and relaxed. I can't wait to get our book!

If you ever need a referral send them my way! I would HIGHLY recommend you to anyone who wants to truly enjoy their wedding with no worries!

Aloha Leah!

I am sooo sorry for taking so long to thank you for such an amazing job you did on our wedding. We just had our big "reception" party, so I have been super busy planning for that since we got back from Maui, and to top it off our son has started walking now, so he's getting into everything and I haven't sat down since!!

Paul & I couldn't be happier with how our wedding turned out. You always hear the horror stories about things that go wrong on your wedding day, and I don't think people really believe me when I tell them that absolutely nothing went wrong for us!

George Wolf Dave Munn were fantastic. George told us that our wedding album would not be ready for us in time for our reception back home, which was disappointing, but completely understandable. Then, to my surprise, it was delivered to my house almost two weeks before our reception - I was thrilled! Not only do the pictures look amazing, but he obviously worked really hard to put it together in time for our reception. Dave also made sure we received our video in time for our reception, and he, too, did a fantastic job. I wouldn't change a thing about it. Not only did we have a great time in Maui, and a beautiful wedding day, but everyone involved in our wedding continued to put forth tremendous effort to make sure we were happy long after our wedding was over.

It has been such a wonderful experience working with you, Leah. Whenever I sent you a list of things I wanted, or wanted to change, you would actually send me the same list back, with notes beside each item, so I knew each thing would be taken care of. I felt very confident that our wedding would be perfect, and it was, thanks to you.

If I hear of anyone I know getting married in Maui, you can be sure I will be giving them your name with the highest of recommendations.

Thank you so much, Leah. You made our day perfect, and we will always treasure the memories.

I look forward to seeing you in the future when we renew our vows!

Working with Leah and Island Wedding Memories was a dream! They know the ins and outs of Maui and made everything so easy. I didn't have to worry about any of the details. You can't go wrong with Leah!

We just got your cd today. Thank you so much. We had such a wonderful time in Maui and the wedding was beautiful. We loved Maui so much we are actually talking about moving out there hopefully in 2 or 3 years. I was looking at tickets to go this Feb. and Allen admitted to me he looked for March last week. We hope to be in paradise again soon.

Aloha Leah!

We appreciate everything you did for us on our special day! Everything was Perfect! You created for us the most BEAUTIFUL ceremony, my gorgeous calla lily bouquet, leis, our minister, the PERFECT location for our photos, and for being a wonderful wedding coordinator! George did an AMAZING job and produced for us photos we will cherish forever. We enjoyed his personality and he made us feel comfortable throughout the photo shoot. I wanted you to know ( if I haven't already mentioned this) that if anyone decides to marry in Maui .....I will recommend you. Thank you again for everything and warm wishes to you and your family!

Thanks for taking care of the beverage bill for us and for everything else.

Appreciated your help very much with everything, including all the little details. Thanks for waiting until we got back home to inform us about the bev bill still outstanding. You allowed us to have a nice honeymoon away from worries. Thanks again and we envy you your Maui home. Did not want to come back here!

Dearest Leah,

Hi! This is Angelica Cardoza writing (August 12, 2005). Sorry that I have taken so long to write!!! Adjusting to married life has taken up a lot of time!!! Anyhow, I wanted to thank you for the beautiful music CD. That was very thoughtful of you!!! Well everyone came home just ecstatic from our wedding day event. I have heard numerous times from our guests the words "fantastic", "well organized", and especially "PERFECT"!!!!!! That is how people remember our wedding. Leah, of course, I can't thank you enough. Our wedding turned out to be a highlight in our friends' and families' memories!!! It was a happy and perfect day that we all can't stop talking about and remembering fondly. I guess the best praise that I can give you came from my father. He said that if he had another daughter, he would have YOU organize her wedding!!! (Sadly, I am the last of the bunch!) Leah, I could go on and on and shower you with praise. (Should I?) I will end it with my favorite statement to my friends here at home when they asked me about the wedding: "It was perfectly perfect and better than anything I could have imagined!!!" Okay, now I am going to cry.

Dear Leah

Just rec'd the decorative, marriage certificate today. Thanks for mailing it to us for E&B. I also wanted to relay a couple of the wonderful comments we've heard from our guests that were at Brad & Erin's wedding:

• Sonali (Erin's maid of honor) was so appreciative of you coming to her rescue as the ceremony ended and she was emotional & in tears..."here, come with me, let's go get a Mai Tai..." Leah, you took care of her right when she needed it. You had a way of making each of our guests feel special, thank You!

• "Erin, your coordinator was AWESOME! She was there when you needed something and was always helping out. She was AWESOME!!!" (from a friend that was married just a year ago - and others totally agreeing with her!)

• (a note from my mom, Erin's grandmother regarding George's pictures)... "SUCH GOOD PHOTOS! GABE, KARI'S HUSBAND, WAS HERE WHEN WE FIRST PULLED THE PICS UP ON THE COMPUTER, AND HE'S BEEN INTO PHOTOGRAPHY FOR QUITE AWHILE, AND KNOWS SOME PROFESSIONAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS, SAID HE HAD NEVER SEEN SUCH GOOD WORK BEFORE. HE WAS REALLY IMPRESSED!! "

• "We had a blast at the wedding! You honestly could not ask for a more gorgous place and beautiful ceremony. The food was excellent the DJ was great and the whole atmosphere was breathtaking. It must feel wonderful to look back on the day and have such wonderful memories." (one of Erin's sorority sisters)

I could go on & on with the compliments... Leah - We cannot thank you enough for making all of our dreams (both family & friends) become reality. You made the "destination wedding" a thoroughly exciting, fabulous, fun experience! Sincerely, THANK YOU for everything you did and for your caring, competent expertise as a wonderful wedding coordinator in one of the most beautiful locations we could ever imagine! Our choice of you, Leah, Island Wedding Memories (and each of your vendors), Pastor Dave Krueger, and Olowalu Plantation Estate were the best we could have made!

"Warmest Mahalos",

Aloha Leah,

Thank you for creating a wonderful wedding experience for Daniel and I. The flowers were beautiful- the bouquets, archway, the table centerpieces- all gorgeous!!!! Our minister Adam Gomes was just perfect like you said- he is such a warm and loving person. I am so glad we were married by him. The orchids placed throughout our hotel room was such a romantic addition- it took my breath away. George did a wonderful job with the photographs- they are beautiful and exactly what we were hoping for. Celia and the violinist were absolutely wonderful and stayed to play a little longer for us-everyone loved them. Considering that is was an unusually hot afternoon, everyone ignored the heat to ensure our wedding was perfect. Most of all thank you for making it all seem so easy; I know how much work you put into each wedding. Your personal attention and professionalism make all the difference. Except for rounding up my family, there was never a moment of stress or concern for me on my wedding day- it was just as I pictured. If there is anything I forgot to mention it is because it was a blur of happiness for me all evening. Thank you so much. If you ever want to bring your family to the mainland for vacation- come see us in the Wild West corner of Texas-you are always welcome.

Hi Leah,

Remember us, Max and Sandra, May 16th? Just letting you know we received our photo album from George yesterday, and I remembered then that I had not taken the time yet since we returned to Washington DC to properly THANK YOU and your crew of vendors for all the effort you put forth to make our wedding memorable and unique. If I could do it again, I would not change a single thing! It was fabulous, elegant, relaxed, and so stress free, in great part thanks to you and to all your hard work. Please convey our thanks to all the vendors that participated in our big day, in particular the caterer (the food was simply perfect!), our minister, and the amazing, talented musician (guitar player) that entertained us all evening. The flowers you put together for us were lovely, Olowalu plantation could not have been a more perfect, intimate site, and the entertainment (hula dancers, musicians) lended a beautiful Hawaiian flavor to the event. The photographer, George, is a genius. We also enjoyed being able to watch our wedding video as soon as we got home (they had it ready for us the day after the wedding and we were able to pick it up on our way to the airport). Most importantly, many, many thanks to you, Leah, the choreographer, the mastermind, the efficient coordinator: you took all the worry off my special day and made it that much more special because of that.

Thanks again in a million ways, Sandra (and Max) Balboa

Leah,

I can't believe we've been back an entire month already. I miss Maui. I wanted to thank you for making my dream wedding come true. Since I was about 14 years old, I had it in my mind that I wanted to be married on the beach. Everything that you put together was perfect. The Olowalu Plantation house was better than I could have imagined. Your vendors were top notch. The flowers on my archway and in the bouquets were beautiful. The food was excellent. My mother even commented that the food at the wedding was much better than the food at the public luau we went to the next night. George's photos are unbelievable and exactly what we wanted to capture that day. Adam Gomes was a perfect minister for us and even though he had not met us before, we felt he knew us. The entertainment, including Don Lax and the musical duo/hula dancers were so much fun. I have to admit, I was nervous planning a wedding so far away. But nothing went wrong. Several of my family and friends commented that they couldn't believe I set it all up on the internet and over the phone. Thank you for being so professional.

It all added up to the "perfect wedding" experience.

Hi Leah:)

Hey there! How are you? Better weather, I hope?! I've been meaning to write you for a while:) Thank you very much for all of your help. My wedding day was a lesson in "expect the unexpected" (There was rain on her wedding day - Leah) but it all came together and turned out to be a very nice evening.

I must say that the atrium was a cool spot for the ceremony! I loved the aisle of flowers and the yellow flowers you used were the perfect pop of color! And great choice on the minister, everyone loved him!! If I had it to do all over again, I would have kept the ceremony there:) It was just right! Your bamboo topiaries were beautiful, too:) The picture of us together was cute, I'll mail you one:)

As for the ceremony musician, I can't remember him at all because I was so nervous!! I loved Hale Villarimo, the reception musician. Do you agree? I thought he was great and regret not having booked him longer! Anyways, thank you again for all of your time and for just being a very sweet person, I loved working with you!! May all your weddings run smoothly and have all of the very nicest brides! You deserve it:) I'm going to look you up on my next trip to Maui (probably next year) and we'll make a lunch date! Take care, and let me know if there’s anything you ever need here on the mainland ( I mean it!)

I was not once stressed about anything even when the road was shut down because I knew that you could not start without me! How ironic was it that there was a fire that shut down the road and I was about to marry a fireman? That is a funny story!
Sarento's was exceptional! The service and food was wonderful. We also really loved our minister, Vance. He was so great! You really made our day unforgettable. I just can't stop talking about everything!!!! Everyone at our wedding can't stop talking about it either. I think that it is now my mission to get everyone to come to Maui to get married and I will definitely recommend you:-)

Kevin and I wanted to thank you for all of your hard work on our wedding and reception. Everything was beautiful. We loved Jesse and our guessed "raved" about him. We had no idea he was going to sing and everyone loved it, they all mentioned how wonderful it was. Our reception centerpieces were "exactly" what I had in mind. They turned out wonderful, so beautiful and many of our guests again, complemented us on them. Thank you for capturing the feel I explained and altering the picture I sent to fit with our colors.

We and all of our guests "LOVED" the Sea Watch. The food was amazing and their staff did such a wonderful job. I knew when I saw that many of your clients used the Sea Watch it had to be great and I am so happy they were available.

Thank you again, best wishes and take care.

We had approximately 50 guests and all who attended have wonderful memories. Tiffani is the 5th of our 6 daughters to marry so we have lots of wedding experience. In fact, our first son was married Feb. 1 so we have already had another wedding since the on in Maui.

All of our family would tell you this was the most enjoyable wedding we have had. The wedding was in a beautiful setting, Leah kept it right on schedule, the dinner was absolutely delicious, the entertainment was superb, the photos were outstanding and one of the best things is the wonderful video that was done (I only wish we had continued the video into the reception dinner for a while).

Leah arranged for every little thing we needed and worked quite well with me on the expenses. She did all of this while having a very bad staff infection in her foot. Marriage vows are very important to our family and we specifically requested that she do all that she could to make sure that the ceremony and reception would be pleasing and glorifying to God. She did that and was very patient with me as I worried about letting her control the whole affair (I’m used to doing that myself). The wedding started at 5:00p. The wedding music was provided by a lovely harp and flute – which I’m sorry to say I can’t remember hearing, but I was told that it was lovely. We brought our own minister and he was delighted with some of the Hawaiian traditions that Leah suggested for the wedding ceremony, like giving leis to every guest. The flowers were breathtaking. While the couple was being photographed on the beach and in the sunset, the rest of us had cocktails and started dinner. The Bride and Groom were escorted into the reception in Hawaiian tradition by conch shell blower and hula girls, followed by fabulous Hawaiian entertainers which was which was quite a treat for many of the guests who had never been to a luau, but everyone enjoyed the show. After the delicious wedding cake and some family entertainment and toasts, a DJ gave us a couple of hours of dancing. We were done by about 10:30 and the bride and groom left in a lovely limo for there honeymoon.

That’s most of the highlights (probably more than you wanted to know sorry). Feel free to ask if you have further questions. May God bless your wedding and your marriage as he did Tiffany and Kevin’s.

Aloha, Leah,

I can not thank you enough for all of your help with our perfect wedding! Jessie is the best that I have ever experienced. He is so wonderful. The photo crew was fantastic, and my flowers were beautiful! The pictures came out better than I expected with a photophobic groom and not to mention our ever so "helpful" guests. The pictures turned out so well and the video is breathtaking!! I can not say enough nice things about your staff!! Did I mention how our limo and special driver was the best ever!! Our wedding dinner was fantastic, and the cake was super.

I hope this note finds your foot feeling better and a smiling Trevor at your side.

Blessings, Carolyn

Hi Leah,

Things have been so hectic here since we returned from Maui, that I haven't even had a chance to thank you for the wonderful job you did on the wedding. We're getting ready to transfer jobs and move to Connecticut, so it seems we haven't had a moment's rest since stepping off the plane--which makes us even more depressed that our vacation is over!

We both wanted to thank you so much for the excellent wedding you organized for us. The White Orchid was absolutely beautiful--the views were spectacular--so much better than online pictures could do it justice! Your flower arrangements were gorgeous, exactly as I had imagined! All our female guests wished they could have taken some flowers back to the mainland with them! And Al was just as kind and wonderful as you said he would be--he made us both feel so at ease, as if we were the only two people on the island. Tell George that we loved the way he took us away to Secret Beach to take pictures. We saw the proofs and he sure knew what he was doing!!! We can't wait to get our photo-album!

Thank you again, Leah...and thank you for the card...it was our first piece of mail that had our married names on it!

Take care! Kathy and A.J. Schultz

Dear Leah,

John and I want to thank you again for helping make our wedding so special and so beautiful. We truly appreciate all your efforts coordinating everything. We thought Jesse was wonderful and honestly felt the warmth of aloha when he spoke. You also did a fabulous job with the flowers! They were more gorgeous than I had even imagined and helped make everything so beautiful. The pictures turned out well, George was great. The dinner in the Lobby Mezzanine was great too (although somewhat chaotic with my family’s small ones!) The servers/waitresses were very helpful and professional at the Kea Lani. We loved the Kea Lani too! As you can tell our wedding was everything we hoped for and we thank you for all you did to help make it that way. I can’t wait to rave about it to those who weren’t there!

Aloha - Heather & John

P.S. Everyone loved the Feast at Lele I will definitely recommend it to anyone I know going to Maui!

Well, here we are in somewhat chilly Vancouver missing Maui!! Thank you so much for all of your work to help us have such a lovely wedding day. The KeaLani is spectacular, the dinner was amazing. I don’t think you would have seen any but Junipers pictures were great too! She got one of those bamboo florals you made us too! Thank you once again-

Aloha Leah and Judah!

Charlie and I received our wedding album last week and are thrilled with the finished product. The photos served as great reminders of how absolutely perfect our wedding day was. When you think about weddings, you usually don't picture a low stress day, but our wedding day was just that! Everything was perfect, right down to the whales breeching in the background.

There is nothing in this world quite as beautiful as a Hawaiian sunset, which made just a fantastic backdrop for our special day. Thank you for taking the time to make our wedding one of the best and most memorable days of our lives. Charlie and I were lucky to have found you. We will never forget our Maui wedding.

Dear Leah,

We are back to our strange, almost normal, New York life and missing our Maui days... We both want to thank you for everything you did to make our wedding special. It was exactly as we wanted, intimate and personal, but still a lot of fun. The church was exactly as I imagined and SeaWatch was a perfect choice, not only for the view, but the service and food was great.

Every picture of my bouquet shows off your handiwork and my mom still talks about your centerpieces. And the band was perfect, I had no idea we would be dancing in our bare feet by the end of the night! We have wonderful memories of Maui and we could not have created such a beautiful day without your hard work.

Again, thanks for everything,
Gary & Michelle

Starr

Dear Leah,

I want you to know how much James and I appreciated you advice and help with Fred and Rosally’s bridal/rehearsal dinner.

The SeaWatch Restaurant was every bit as marvelous as you had promised. The setting could not have been more ideal. Perfect weather, a lush tropical vista and a spectacular sunset over the ocean, followed by a rising full moon over the mountains – what more could one wish? That lovely terrace area was the perfect size for our party – sufficiently intimate to give real cohesion to the group while still providing a balmy atmosphere & magnificent view and later a canopy of stars. The bar set up, the dinners, the service – all were excellent – just as you had indicated. James and I were particularly please that our “older generation” desire for a certain degree of formality fit so well into the SeaWatch location – it produced exactly the “feel” we were hoping for.

All our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves and each one commented on the remarkable perfection of the evening. Many, many thanks for all your efforts in making our celebration such a success. I must say also, how much we enjoyed Fred and Rosary’s wedding! You certainly do a fantastic job of creating memorable occasions.

Sincerely,
Ellen Starr

Velasquez

Dear Leah,

Hi, how are you? Me, I'm good. Missing Maui already! I'm now getting a chance to say thank you for such an amazing wedding on the beach. Everyone commented on how intimate and personal our ceremony was. And everyone loved Jessie! His words were wonderful and the Hawaiian songs he sang fit perfectly into the ceremony. It was such a nice surprise; and I hadn't even met him before! The flowers were gorgeous! I wanted to keep that red rose bouquet from that night just as it was. It was perfect. And our limo ride after our reception was a lot of fun.

We went all the way up to Kaanapali...the drive along the ocean was romantic. My dream of getting married on the beach was better than I ever imagined. The rose petal aisle and the archway with flowers made it perfect. I remember looking over to the ocean while Jessie spoke and it was the happiest, most peaceful moment of my life. Thank you for typing up our passages onto the scrolls. We still have them, with a rose petal my mom picked up from the beach wrapped in them with the ribbon. That was a special thing for us, and everyone made us read them again before we cut the cake at the reception.

We watched our video immediately when we got home, since he gave us the unedited tape on our way out of Maui. It was great! We are definitely coming back to the Kea Lani for many anniversaries to come. And we'll get to visit the beach we were married on for so many years to come! Such a wonderful place.

Thanks for everything...it turned out just how I imagined in my mind and heart.

Aloha. It was such a pleasure talking to you the other day. Thank you for the lovely card. You will have to tell Judah & Trevor we said many thanks. We had such a wonderful time on our honeymoon in Kauai. We really got to relax and enjoy our trip to Kauai. We can't wait to go back to Hawaii. I miss it already! I am so envious of you.

Leah & Judah,

Thank you so much for all your help in planning our wedding! It was an absolute dream come true for us as well as all of our friends & family. When you start planning a wedding you have certain expectations & hopes of what the day will be like, most times brides are let down in one way or another, our wedding, by far, exceeded what we could ever imagine! We couldn’t have done it without you! We will never forget our wonderful memories of Maui ~ we were so lucky to have had this opportunity.

Regards – Glen & Tracy Nightingale

&

Good morning Leah & Judah!
Long time no email or talk. Hope everything is well with you & your family. Well we are finally home & settled from all the wedding rush. It was absolutely the best thing that Glen & I have done! It was so beautiful & we would like to thank you both for all your help & input into making our day such a special one! People rave about how how wonderful our pictures turned out -the background is so beautiful it looks like a fake backdrop. I don't think any one of us really realized how amazing the whole day would be! It still feels like all a dream!

Kind regards,

Therese and I were absolutely elated with everything. Jesse and the ceremony, the cake, the Leis and flowers, and of-course George and the photographs. George managed to get the photo albums ready before we left Maui, and we just barely managed (another whole story) to squeeze in one more meeting to pick them up.

Thanks so much for putting as ease. Everything was perfect!

Leah,

To a very special person. When Michael and I started talking about having our wedding in Hawaii, I envisioned that it would be a struggle trying to plan everything from the mainland. I am so thankful to have met you. I remember the first time I e-mailed you, you called me back within ten minutes of receiving my e-mail. Right then, I knew that you were the person we were looking for. Ever since, you have been more than patient with us as we tried to set a wedding date and you worked very hard to satisfy our wants and needs. I sit here with only 15 days before our wedding and I feel no stress. If there is one thing I want, it is for Michael and I to be able to focus on our wedding day and to concentrate on its meaning. You are helping us to be able to do that. I know you work with hundreds of couples and every single one wants their wedding day to be PERFECT, but you have made us feel very special and we appreciate that. You are brilliant at what you do and we would most certainly recommend you to anyone who is getting married on Maui. Thank you for making our day special.

Yours Truly,
Michael and Julie

Dear Leah,

Sorry it has taken me so long to sit down and write you a thank you note. Things are finally settling down here at home. Louis and I can't thank you enough for all the work you did to make our wedding so special. Everyone who attended had a great time. The golf course and the view were beautiful, the food was fabulous, and the wedding was perfect. It was everything I wanted my wedding day to be. Things started out a little rough (the rain), but once the ceremony started I realized the exact location was not the important thing. The important thing was being on such a magical island, pledging my love to Lou in front of our families, and finally being husband and wife.

The ceremony was perfect please let Rev. Alapaki know how special it was for us. My family and I are very thankful for all that you did that day and up to that day. Our photos were wonderful, the flowers were beautiful and so fragrant, and the video makes everyone cry.

The Seawatch was the perfect restaurant. It was one of the best meals we had during our stay. The wait staff was terrific and the food was excellent. The ukulele player was the perfect finishing touch to the night. Thank you again and if you ever need someone to help endorse you please have them call us for our opinion, we'll let them know that they can't go wrong with you.

Sincerely,
Jennifer and Louis Haefner

Dear Judah and Leah,

Well it has been six weeks since our wedding and I apologize for not having written sooner. We have received our photographs and album from George, and it is magnificent. We could not be happier. My dress had to be professionally, professionally dry cleaned, but it was worth every minute. George really was a fantastic photographer, and I would recommend him a thousand times over. We made our own video, and it came out really well. We were just watching it this weekend, and seeing Judah scurrying around in the background reminded me to write this e-mail. Leah unfortunately James and I did not get to meet you, but I must tell you that Judah was incredible. He managed to sort Jessie out for us, who did a wonderful ceremony, and broke out into song at the end which was so memorable. Judah really made a huge difference to our wedding, and things ran really smoothly. The cake was delicious, and the flowers beautiful. Makena beach is a great location. To be honest, if I had to do it all again, I would not change a thing. Thanks to both of you for making our day one to remember forever. We will be sure to call on you when we re-new our vows one day. God bless.

Regards,
Lauren and James Sapirstein

Hi Leah,

We are back at home in cold and rainy Seattle! We just wanted to thank you again for your assistance with our wedding. Everything was perfect, once the highway opened, that is! We loved Jesse's ceremony, and the beach site was exactly what we wanted. Everyone had a great time.

I especially wanted to let you know how happy we were with Brendan, the photographer. He spent a considerable amount of time with us, and gave us some extra pictures. He went out of his way to make sure we had exactly what we wanted. He apparently went down to the wedding site the day before to scope it out and see where the lighting would be coming from. He definitely went above and beyond in many ways, and I'd highly recommend your using him in the future when you have weddings that fit his type of photography rather than George's.

Thanks again, Leah, for a day we'll obviously never forget!

Hi Guys,

We have been so busy both at work and home. How are you guys doing? We noticed that our wedding pictures are still on your web-page. Thanks for keeping them their. We would love to take another trip to the best place on earth "Maui". We really miss it. Rima and I wanted to thank you both very very much for all your help in making our wedding day a success. Also, thank-you for the card that you sent. We have it in our Wedding album. It was a great honor and pleasure meeting - Judah, we had some good laughs, it was almost like we new Judah for a long time. How's the ex-police car running? It would have been a great pleasure as well to meet Leah in person. We have pictures of all three of you; Leah, Judah and Trevor off the net. So, even if we didn't get to meet you Leah in person, just communicating with you over the net, we felt and knew that you were and are a kind, helpful, and wonderful person. When we come back to Maui in 5 years to renew our vow's, we can meet one another. And for the best news lately; Rima (the wife) is pregnant!!! Hurray!!!! The due date is June. 20/2001. We didn't want to find out the sex as this one will be our first. Please keep in touch, your friends-

Ron & Rima Holobow
