Aloha Captain Howie & Crew!
My feet still haven’t touched the ground since our spectacular Beach Wedding in Hawaii on June 22, 2013! Words cannot begin to describe how grateful I am to the team at Above Heaven’s Gate for helping to make all of our Hawaiian wedding dreams come true, and then some! We dated for 10 years before “tying the knot”, and you definitely created the perfect wedding for us; it was SO worth waiting for!
From the very first phone call, I knew we made the right choice. Sara was always very helpful with special requests, and responded very promptly to all of my questions leading up to our big day. I requested a custom bouquet, and it was absolutely the most stunning bridal bouquet I have ever seen in my life! Wade did a phenomenal job on my hair and make up! Our photographer, Piloni, and videographer, Marty, were fantastic! They were both very patient, professional, and worked very hard to create beautiful memories for us! We are so impressed with the quality of the images and the video; they are incredibly beautiful! I didn’t even eat dinner the night they arrived, as I couldn’t pull myself away from the pictures. I was so excited! Our friends and family can’t get over the pictures either. They are like no other wedding pictures they’ve ever seen, so surreal!
And of course, last but certainly not least, Captain Howie, you are such a caring, spiritual, gifted man. We feel so blessed that God led us to you, to be such an integral part of our very special day. From the moment we met you, you made us feel completely comfortable, like we were old friends reunited. Not many people would be out front to greet us at 4am, and sit and talk with us for an hour and a half before performing a sunrise ceremony! We feel like you really got to know us, and as a result, you performed such an amazing, personalized ceremony. You spoke from the heart and really took your time with us, which meant the world to us. I’ve watched the video over and over. It is deeply meaningful and magical. I cannot thank you enough!
To all couples who are reading this and considering Above Heaven’s Gate, take my word – you will not be disappointed! If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn’t have changed a single thing. Everything was absolutely perfect! Captain Howie and his crew do an amazing job!
Aloha & Mahalo!
