Just to confirm, what was your wedding date again?

Just wanted to say thank you from our whole hearts for giving us the most beautiful wedding I could have ever dreamed of. You guys made it so simple and stress free planning its incredible. My flowers of rainbow plumeria were exquisite, I can still smell the scent on my dress and hope it stays forever. Our pictures make me cry every time we look at them. Having somewhere over the rainbow played for us while I walked to meet Evan was a dream come true. Even the small rain shower blessing during our vows was very brief, unique and memorable. We enjoyed the smith family luau and especially staying at your bed and breakfast:) beautiful, fun and exactly what we wanted! You and your crew are amazing. Special thanks to the Anara spa at the Hyatt on my hippie hair that was beautiful and fit me perfectly :)Aloha and Mahalo Mike and Martina, we will be back.
All of our love, Evan and Holly Klein / Sioux City Iowa

Aloha from California!
My husband and I were married at Shipwreck Beach. Looking at the pictures brought me back to that day and it made me tear up again. We thank you guys from the bottom of our hearts for making our special day a day we will cherish and remember forever. Our Kauai wedding was just perfect! Kauai Island Weddings gave us a memorable wedding and beautiful wedding photos in Hawaii. The staff was professional and extremely good at what they do. Everything was above and beyond what we expected. We'll definitely be returning to renew our vows with Kauai Island Weddings.
Thank you...Mike, Martina, Rev. Todd, Johannes & Dave!!!
Sincerely, Gina & Ky Le Photo

Good Morning Martina and Mike!
I just wanted to say 'Thank You' for a very beautiful and memorable wedding experience! Not only was it virtually stress-free, but Todd and Dave were very laid-back and very professional! They made our morning amazing and so relaxed and we had a blast taking pictures! They are wonderful assets to your team. Mike, I hope I wasn't too much of a pain the day before the wedding while I was on my hunt for the perfect location, i appreciate your patience with my many phone calls. Thank you again for all of the help, our day was perfect!!!
Justin and Gina Lindeman

Mike, Martina & Crew,
Judy and I were married February 14th on Shipwreck Beach in Poipu. First let me say that it exceeded all possible expectations from our end. The level of communication, follow through, professionalism and comfort provided by everyone was exemplary. Our officiant, Todd Fuerte, and primary photographer, Dave, were aces...fun, relaxed and professional. We felt as if we were with long time friends who genuinely cared about our wedding as much as we did from the very beginning of our process. From top to bottom we would absolutely recommend to anyone who wants to come to Kauai to wed that they use your service. Thank you all so much.

Mike & Martina,
Just wanted to say thanks again for making our wedding day stress-free and fantastic!!! The pictures are AMAZING and we couldn't be happier with our experience! You captured the moment beautifully. Please send our appreciation to Rev. Todd and Johannes as well. Your company and staff are professional and extremely talented and we wish you continued success.
Thanks for everything!

Aloha from Spirit Lake Idaho,
Shawn and I want to thank all of you so much for all you and your staff did to make our day so special. We were married on May 5th at the most breathtaking place in the world, Shipwreck Beach. The ceremony was perfect and so was the weather. After having a chance to look at all the photos, we love every one of them. We now have so many beautiful photos thanks to Jo and Todd taking them. They could not have turned out better; I look at our photos and still can’t believe it is us in them they are so beautiful. It truly was the happiest day of our lives. We have had a great time sharing the photos and stories from our wedding day with our friends and family, even showing them the photos of us after the wedding having so much fun in the water with the waves behind us. We will highly recommend your services. We had such a great time and miss Kauai already. We can’t wait to come back again. Thank You Shawn and Melissa Nelson Photo

Mike and Martina, I can't tell you how much we enjoyed the wedding. The photographs were absolutely amazing! I can't imagine how anything could have been better. My bride was so happy. I'm so glad she had the wedding she's always dreamed of. You know, before we went to Hawaii, she had talked about having another wedding in Colombia so her family could be a part of it. (oh no!) After the wedding she said she didn't want to have the second wedding, because she didn't want anything to take away from anything we've experienced (whew!). That's how much the wedding you put together meant to her.
PS: We got the wedding book the other day. Just amazing. You guys do a real professional job, and are a bunch of fun too.
Thanks again, Bill and Alexandra Webster Photo

Thank you so much for making our wedding ceremony & photo shoot enjoyable and so memorable. We can't wait to see the photos! You were all so great that we would like to increase the tip amount by an additional $100 for a grand total of $200. Thank you again and you'll be highly recommended to our friends anyone else whose interested in getting married in Hawaii.
Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Hi Martina and Mike,
how are you? I just want to tell you that everything went good :)
I was super nervous but my new husband was very calm:)
Thank you for all the arrangements.
It was pleasure to meet Johannes and Rev. Todd.
Thank you and wish you all the best.

Aloha Martina, Mike, Rev.Todd, Johannes and the rest of the staff:
Got the coffee table wedding book shortly after returning from our honeymoon. It was such a great surprise! We were not sure what to expect but knew it would be good. We were wrong. IT WAS BEAUTIFUL! It was so good, we couldn't believe that was us in the book. It was so professionally done. Your photo choices for the book were great and it was so nicely put togther. When our friends and family viewed the book, they remarked on the professional magazine quality. How can you top that?

And then we got the video! WOW!!! Yes, it's true, it brought tears to our eyes. You captured all the right moves, gestures, smiles and sights for our special day. But you also captured our hearts. From the moment we made our first contact on the phone until our leaving the beach after the ceremony, we felt as though you were family. So not only did we get the professional quality service we wanted but also got the care, fun and ease that family would give. That was a bonus! We want to sincerely thank you all for the awesome experience we had. Rest assured that we have been and continue to tell all who are thinking of getting married, they should have an experience like ours. We're sending them your way. Thank you again. We wish you all the best.
Aloha! Jack and Gloria Eason

Having our wedding in Kauai was something both my wife and I really wanted, but having it handled by the Kauai Island Weddings & the Kauai Country Inn was something we didn't know we wanted until we had it. Mike was a very helpful wedding planner and our minister, Todd was as well. They picked beautiful locations and took amazing wedding photos and have been extremely helpful with regards to the wedding licensing and advice.
I simply can't adequately express the experience of staying at the Kauai Country Inn, but I'm going to try. It was just amazing. For the cost of a simple hotel room anywhere else on the island we had an 800 square foot apartment in the mountains. My fiance and I stayed in the newly renovated Orchid suite and were blown away by the hospitality, service, cleanliness, and charm. We also enjoyed the personal service of their manager Hans and housekeeper Tricia who were there every morning with breakfast laid out and advice or conversation at the ready. Little things like providing a weeks worth of Pepsi instead of champagne really put this little inn over the top. Needless to say, by the end of our Kauai honeymoon, my WIFE and I were genuinely sad to leave. We want to come back so bad and are already dreaming of our next trip. Aaron & Stephanie Nelson Photo

Aloha Martina and Mike,
We appreciate you both, Todd, and Johannes so much! You made our special day so stress free and so easy. If you're in paradise, you shouldn't have to stress and that's exactly what happened. When people asked me how the wedding plans were going, I said that I talked to Mike once, but I knew it was going to be okay; they looked at me like I was crazy. But everything went off without a hitch and it was such a memorable time. All of your attitudes were so great and you made it all about us.
I didn't think I would cry, but I did. The ceremony, the flowers, EVERYTHING was perfect. I just want to express how awesome our experience was and we can't put into words how much we appreciate you taking care of everything. We're very glad that we came across your website and I've already passed along the word. :)

Hi Mike and Martina,
Just wanted to say that Todd and Jo did an awesome job with the wedding and pictures - they are wonderful and so many of them! And most importantly the guys made our wedding day fun and relaxing. No stress what so ever!
I'd like to pass the name of the hair dresser that did my hair and make up for the wedding on to you for your other clients that may prefer something other than the hotel services. She is so personable and accommodated our schedule with hestitation. I had a consultation the day before the wedding with her about the style I wanted (Terry decided to have her trim up his hair too)...very professional and again, relaxing for me in her salon. Her name is Amy Galante at 808-742-9551. She does make up only if the client brings their own make up/brushes, and did a very professional job for me...I brought all of my own brushes and make up items with me for vacation anyway...so it worked out great.
Thanks for making our special day exactly what we were looking for! I will certainly pass your name on to others if I hear of someone looking for a destination wedding location.

For your testimonial page:
Mike and Martina - wanted to thank you for everything you did to make our wedding day such a special day.  I'd searched the internet and selected your company based on the beautiful pictures you had on there but got so much more than I ever expected!  I got to really look around and decide what we wanted for our day and the informational sheet we filled out covered everything we needed to complete the ceremony.  Easier than ordering a pizza for delivery!  We looked through the photo albums you shared on line to pick the right bouquet and the beach location we wanted and I had no surprises when we got there, which was amazing.  We were all about a no-stress wedding that we could just enjoy and you really delivered
. Your website had great recommendations for someone to do hair and make up (Brenda at the Marriot spa salon) and Patricia was a joy to visit with when she came to our room to steam my dress - which I hadn't even thought about needing to get done.  She had great suggestions on how to get my dress there with minimal wrinkling (really only had 1 wrinkle in it but his clothes - another story!).  Todd and Johannes met us at the beach and we laughed and really enjoyed the entire ceremony.  It was such fun to get the pictures back and realize what a great job they did on capturing everything - and during the ceremony we didn't even think about pictures being taken. Loved that they had poses for us after the ceremony and explained how to stand, where to look and other hints to get the best pictures - but also gave us time to get pictures taken that we wanted to as well.  The coffee table book we ordered turned out amazing and we have gotten to share the pictures with the friends and family and have had nothing but compliments.  I especially wanted to thank Johannes for taking the mementos I brought with me from our family and creating special pictures for us - not everyone will know what they stand for - but we do and that's what counts.  For anyone wanting to have a beautiful no-stress wedding I can't say enough about Kauai Island Weddings and what an outstanding job they did. 
Thank you!  Jodie Turner and Rob Craig

Martina and Mike,
Thank you all for giving us our perfect Hawaiian wedding. As a young girl I had always dreamed of that perfect day and you all helped to make it come true! From the moment we arrived we were all struck by the elegance of the Kauai Country Inn. The photos on the site only give one a small glimpse into the shear beauty of this place. Your place, the Kauai Country Inn, made Rick, our moms and myself feel as if we were home. And yet in paradise. Your hospitality is awesome we loved everything from the full size suites to the continental breakfast in the morning. Martina and Mike you put your personal hearts and soul into this place and into providing us with our dream wedding. Everything was done to perfection.... The wedding location, dinner recommendations, flowers, leis, photographs (WOW). The photos were magnificent. Todd the Hawaian Minister was fabulous - very calming. So was your son the photographer he was such a love - his kindness and gentle manner got me over my bridal nerves.
PS: The Hilton, Marriott don't hold a candle to this quaint spot .
Much love to everyone! Maree & Rick Eilman Photo

Good morning!
All I can say is WOW! Words cannot say how meaningful the ceremony was. Todd was funny, polite, helpful and just all around great. Jo was outstanding! You have a wonderful son. He was a joy to work with. I'm sure our photos will be perfect. The places we were able to go for photos were incredible - on top of the cliff was beautiful!

Thank you again and I would highly recommend your services to anyone!

We spent our honeymoon at Kauai Country Inn after being married on Lydgate Beach using the Inn's wedding service. The Plumeria Suite was the perfect island getaway for us. If you want a place that is secluded yet self-contained, this is it. The suite had a full kitchen with a large fridge, roomy master suite and a huge bathroom with a jetted tub, separate shower, and double sinks. There is a separate living area with a big screen TV and DVD player as well as tons of DVDs. This suite has a large, private, wrap-around deck, perfect for sitting and watching the jungle in the mornings.
Breakfast is simple yet good: pastries, muffins, oatmeal, and the best coffee ever. Staff members Jeff and Tricia gave good advice for local sites and shopping, all well within driving of the inn. Mike Hough (owner) and Jeff were especially helpful our entire stay at the Kauai Country Inn.
The northwest and southwest ends of the islands were easily accessible and an hour away. You can see the Spouting Horn, Waimea Canyon, Hanalei Bay, as well as the Coconut Coast, and some neat little towns like Kapaa, and Lihue.
The best shave ice we found was near the cruise ship docks, Anchor Cove. You can't miss it.
Skip the mustang for your car rental; get the Jeep; you won't be sorry. Kauai's roads are decent yet can be hard to navigate after the rains which occur nearly every day on some part of the island.

Dear Kauai Island Weddings staff,
Levi and I just wanted to say thank you for giving us the perfect Hawaiian wedding! Mike coordinated everything perfectly and made our day so memorable. Reverend Todd provided a beautiful ceremony with the perfect amounts of traditional and Hawaiian wedding traditions. We received the pictures very quickly after arriving home and were blown away by how beautiful they turned out! Our family hasn’t quit talking about their quality and we loved having so many to choose from.  Just when we thought nothing could compare to the photos, we received our wedding video. The video was put together perfectly with the songs we chose. We are so happy to have these beautiful pictures and video to share with family members who were unable to attend our wedding and to help treasure the memories for the rest of our lives! Another helpful touch was the recommendations and links on your website. I chose my salon appointment (Alexander Day Spa & Salon), our wedding dinner (Hukilau Lanai), and a luau (Grand Hyatt) from this list and we were extremely pleased with all the choices! Thank you again for helping make our wedding so memorable.
Sincerely, Hollie Baltazor Glynn Photo

Stephen and I wanted to thank you along with your staff so much for everything that you have all done for us. You made us feel like we were your only couple and you spoiled us with happiness for the most memorable day of our lives…we loved all the grateful tips/tools your website had to offer and all of your great suggestions. The pictures turned out beautifully and we can’t wait to see the videos. We received the deluxe books and they are absolutely beautiful, we can’t thank you enough for making everything perfect for us!!! Stephen also wanted to say a special thanks to the minister who kept him calm during his wait for me to walk to meet him during the ceremony. Everyone that we met in Hawaii was so helpful and extremely nice, and it was a true paradise to visit…we can’t wait to visit again! Jessica & Stephen Amoroso Photo

Jaret and I wanted to take a moment to say "Thank You" for helping to make our wedding absolutely perfect! Todd and Johannes were wonderful. The flowers were beautiful and I received several compliments on the flowers from family and friends who watched the live-stream wedding. We received our picture DVD today. WOW!!!! Almost 1200 photos is so much more than we expected and the quality is exceptional. We can't wait to get our coffee table book. Again, thank you for taking all of the work and stress out of the wedding. I can't tell you how nice it was to just show up and have everything ready to go. Your team went above and beyond what we could have ever expected. Thanks, Jaret and Rebecca Willi Photo

Aloha Martina and Mike,
Anthony and I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your OUTSTANDING services on our Kauai wedding day. You and the photography team managed our group with grace and humor, making a happy day even more full of laughs and smiles. Simply put, we had a blast!
The pictures are wonderful! We love every single one. Can't wait to get the disc!
Thanks again for a wonderful, incredible, and very memorable wedding day!

Dear Martina,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, Mike, Todd, and Joe for making our wedding on October 2 at Shipwreck Beach so wonderful! Everything turned out amazing and we can not thank you all enough for helping to make our wedding turn out exactly how we envisioned it.

Thank you again!!

It was truly a perfect day.....All the guys were great!  Your organization is extremely professional - from first contact to the last invoice and all the special details in between!  We were very impressed and feel lucky (and so blessed) to have chosen you - randomly I must say but there was something about the serenity of Mike's reassuring voice AND your website which I also thought was very, very well done.  We look forward to your photos, and my only regret is not getting a photo of us with Todd....but I guess we'll have plenty from the ceremony.
Mahalo nui loa, Mary T Preas & Jim Myers

Thank you so much for the wonderful stay here at the Kauai Country Inn. Our wedding last week was everything we'd hoped for: great location (thanks Mike for suggesting the change to Shipwreck's where we were protected from the winds and the sun was out), great photos (the colors were amazing), and great team (Todd was warm and engaging, and Mike was fun and supportive).
We were excited to get the DVD of photos while we're still here, as our family and friends back home were anxious to see how it all went. Mike and Todd took so many good photos it was hard to choose a few favorites to share first.

You've got a great thing going here.
Thanks again for sharing a little of it with us!
Avery & Gunther Photo

Mike, first off, thank you so much for putting together a beautiful wedding for us last week!  Todd and everyone were absolutely wonderful, the weather was perfect, and I couldn't have asked for a better location! I received the DVD of our photos yesterday and they are beautiful! Thank you again for helping to make our wedding such a special day! You, Martina, and the rest of your employees truly did an amazing job and we are so thankful to you.
Best Regards, Crickett Sliman Photo

Hey guys!
We had such a wonderful and perfect wedding day.
Thank you so much!
Aloha and mahalo, Janell Nunn

Your son Johannes and minister Todd were absolutely awesome. They took out the stress of the day and made our wedding even more memorable. They are such nice people and were so much fun. Please thank them for us! We were so pleased with every aspect of our wedding that we would be happy to recommend your services to anyone who asks. Everyone was so professional and we did get our pictures and are so pleased! Thanks again, Mr. and Mrs. Rogers Photo

Dear Mike, Martina, and Johannes,
Steve and I would like to thank you so much for the AMAZING job you did with our special day-It turned out to be even more than we could have imagined! The ceremony was beautiful and you made it very comfortable and fun for everyone. The musician was wonderful too. It truly was the happiest day of our lives. You took away all of the nervousness, allowing us to truly enjoy every second. The photos and coffee table book are stunning, and we loved the video. We have had a great time sharing the photos and stories from our wedding day with our friends and family, and it is apparent to them what a wonderful job you did as well. We will enthusiastically recommend your services to anyone traveling to Kauai.PS- Thank you for ordering the rainbow!
Steve & Sarah Tucker

Dear Mike & Martina,
We would like to thank you so much for our wedding! It was perfect and everything we dreamed of was included! The ceremony was so special, the pictures are amazing, the flowers were beautiful, and everyone there loved every minute of it, just as we did! Also, we just received the coffee table book you made for us. "WOW" is all that comes to mind - it is amazing! You have very special gifts and we will definitely recommend you to anyone we know getting married! Thank you again for making our special day perfect!
With Aloha, Andrew & Lindsay Cameron

Steve and I wanted to take a moment to say mahalo nui loa to you, Todd & Johannes from the bottom of our hearts! Your wedding service is absolutely no ka`oi (the best). From the moment I completed the on-line questionaire to the day we received our picture dvd, your service was flawless. Your team absolutely made our day stress free and full of wonderful memories. The pictures are absolutely outstanding.  I'm sending you our announcement where we leveraged several of the pictures. EVERYONE, including the graphic artist that designed the announcement, has commented on the quality of the pictures and how they truly captured the candid happiness we shared that day. Kauai has always held a special place in our hearts, you and your team have elevated that to new levels. Mahalo again for your service, your hospitality, and your professionalism. Our fondest aloha,

Aloha Mike, Martina, and Johannes,
We were married on July 16th. We are very happy and impressed with the wedding outcome. Rev. Todd made the ceremony easy by letting us forget that there was no need to prepare. Instead, we felt relaxed and enjoyed the ceremony along with our daughter and friends.
We love the wedding pictures. The most wonderful moment in our lives was captured perfectly. We appreciate the high quality photography. We want to thank Martina for the flower coordination. The flowers were colorful and looked outstanding in the pictures.
The coffee table books were gorgeous and received many endless comments of what a very pretty Hawaiian wedding we had. The DVD video was the best with the wedding songs playing just right. Thank you Mike for adding "I do" to the video. That song is perfect for every wedding.
It was easy making the wedding arrangements with the least amount of stress and very accommodating starting from reserving the wedding date to getting wedding permit, the locations, the places to have receptions, and teaching a few things about the island of Kauai. We appreciate the professionalism from everyone and the emotional support throughout the months before the wedding.
We had the best and sweetest wedding a couple could ask for. Thank you for making our wedding day very special, making it happen, and most of all, very memorable.
Ana and Billy Wilhide, Plano, TX

Dear Mike,
We recieved our coffee table books today and we were EXTREMLY pleased with your product. I wasn't sure what to expect and I was thinking that we were going to have to pick out all of the photos and then give that list to you but I appreciate that you picked the best ones for us. Again, one less hassle for us to worry about and another reason to be thankful for your services! When I returned from the island I researched your website a little more to gain more knowledge of the Kauai Country Inn. What a great setup and I would definitely consider your location for my clients as well as Clint & I in the future. Thank you for your wonderful work. We look forward to seeing you again when we visit the beautiful island of Kauai in the future.

Aloha Mike and Johannes!
This is Nancy Manos ... oops, I mean Nancy Dillman now. I must stop making that mistake! It's just that "Nancy Dillman" sounds like a librarian, doesn't it? Only kidding. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that my husband and I received our photo DVD, and we were absolutely amazed! The photos truly captured how much fun we had that day! Though the day itself started off windy and rain clouds were coming ashore, you were still able to capture how beautiful and special that day was to us. You made us feel at ease with your hilarious sense of humor and professional attitude. There is not one thing we would change about that day. Our flowers were breathtaking, our cake was delicious, the ceremony was beautiful, and the photos came out better than we could have ever imagined. It's amazing to us that within the over 600+ photos that were taken, we love almost ALL of them. We cannot thank you enough for everything. My husband and I look forward to returning to Kauai, which is by far the most beautiful of all the Hawaiian islands... and when we do, you can be sure we will stay at the Kauai Country Inn.
Also, if you ever need a recommendation, feel free to give the bride my name and contact info. I'd be happy to tell someone that even though Mother Nature wanted to make it a miserable day for us, you and your son came to the rescue bringing great humor... spectacular shots.. and gorgeous flowers. Robert and Nancy Dillman Photo

Dear Mike and Martina,
We just wanted to send you a heartfelt thank you for making our wedding day so incredibly amazing. When we received the pictures and the book we were totally blown away by your work and professionalism. As the wedding day was, the pictures and book were so much better then we could have ever imagined! And we had imagined an incredible day! The ease, kindness, and laughter we shared with all of you was truly memorable and made our day so special. Thank you so much for your beautiful work and your Aloha spirit!
Mahalo, Jade and Jim Mohl

Hi Martina, Mike, Todd and Jo,
Rich and I want to thank all of you so much for all you did to make our day so special.
The ceremony was perfect for us, thanks for that Todd! After having a chance to look at all the photos, we feel very lucky to have had both Jo and Todd taking them. They could not have turned out better. Both of you kept us smiling and happy, kept our daughter engaged in the photos and were even sensitive enough to offer water breaks! All of you went way beyond our expectations, and made it a day that we will truly remember forever. We can't thank you enough!
Christy and Rich

Aloha Martina and Mike,
Thank You! I am writing to tell you what a wonderful experience our family had at Nicole and Nathan's wedding ceremony. I can’t even begin to tell you how wonderful you are. It was a little scary for us with not knowing anyone who has done this over the internet before but..... I would recommend you to everyone I know. The pictures and the videos were amazing! What a great job! I also think the coffee table book was outstanding! Pat yourselves on the back, you made my daughter and her new husband very happy. My partner and I had the great privilege of staying at the Tea Garden Cottage and it was so serene and peaceful! Again, Thank You! We will be back….and we have been telling everyone how wonderful you both are.
Patti Ross, mother of the bride

Mike and Martina:
Brett and I wanted to extend a big thank you for making our wedding day so special.  Since the moment I spoke with Mike on the phone, I knew we were in good hands.  We didn't have to worry about anything except for showing up.  Although, I was stressed out about the weather Mike continued to reassure me that no matter what, everything was going to turn out perfect.  It sure did!  I can't remember the last time we laughed so hard.  From the time we saw Mike in the parking lot with his straw hat on at Shipwreck's Beach until the time we said our goodbyes, we both had smiles on our faces.  You and your family made our Kauai Wedding experience both enjoyable and something that we will truly never forget.  We received so much and paid so little.  Thank you again for the care you took into making our day perfect.  By the way, be sure to stay in business for about another thirty years, our unborn daughter will probably be ready to get married by then. Love, Brett and Theresa :)

Aloha Martina and Mike,
Brian and I cannot thank you enough for helping make our wedding day beyond expectations!  Johannes and Shannon were so friendly, helpful and incredible to work with.  Mike offered many unique ideas for our ceremony and photographs, plus tips on everything from locations, attire, customs and traditions.  And so many photographs to choose from!  The pictures are stunning and we have received countless compliments on how gorgeous they are. Without a doubt, a perfect experience.
Thank you again for making our wedding day everything we hoped for and absolutely beautiful.
Brian and Kristin Friedrichs

Dallas and I arrived home today. We were delighted with our services. Rev Todd and Jo were both professional and relaxing at the same time. Incredibly friendly and down to earth, they really helped us to feel at ease even though the beach was super crowded and the sky was pretty cloudy. We are hoping for some super photos but hazy skies and squinting from the occasional sunny breakthrough may provide a challenge in the photo department. After 6 years together we only have 3 photos of us together! Maybe a few black and whites will hide the gray skies. The bouquet was beautiful. Please send our thanks to the Rev Todd and Jo who took time from their day to make ours extra special~ Mahalo.
Thanks, Deanna Cornell & Charles Green

Aloha Mike,
I just wanted to drop you a note to say Thank You to you, and everyone involved with the ceremony for my father, Lou and Mei today. They sounded so happy after getting married and mentioned several times that you and everyone involved made it a spectacular day for them. It made me very happy to hear, and I wanted you to know how much I appreciate your level of concern and kindness for this very special occasion. The process of working with you has been a pleasure. Once again, Thank you. Best, Trudi


Hi there Maritna, I just wanted to say Thank You soooo much for the beautiful wedding Bobby and I had on Jan 23rd. Everything was just perfect.
Kim Sheehy Ornelas Photo

Just wanted to let you know we got the dvd yesterday, and we are so happy with the pictures. I have to say even our rainy ones were pretty good, they still look beautiful!
I just wanted to thank you for all your help in working with us and around the weather. Todd and Shannon were wonderful and true troopers. They really made our day great even with the rain. Our friends and family really enjoyed themselves and thought the ceremony was wonderful. We had such a great time in Kauai and miss it terribly already.
Thank you again for everything!
Mahalo! Jenny and Corey Scholtka

"Dear Martina & Mike,
We received our wedding video in the mail today and just finished viewing it together.  As you said in your advertisement 'it will make you cry' - you were absolutely right!  We felt the rush of joy of getting married all over again.  You and your company did an outstanding job.  We could not be happier with the video, the photo DVD & the beautiful and impressive coffee table book.  We were so surprised that it is an actual book, not a photo album.  We feel so lucky to have found you to do our wedding.  Thank you for taking such care with our precious memories.  We will joyfully recommend you to others in the future and will be ordering additional copies of our video soon with you.  Thank you again for getting the native Hawaiian musician we asked for; he played and sang beautifully."
Mr. & Mrs. Josué Pineda

Hi Mike & Martina,
Victor and I want to extend a huge thank you and to Todd for making our wedding day the most amazing day of our lives. Everything was perfect, the weather, the beach...everything! Todd was great and he just made the whole experience of our ceremony a wonderful memory. We didn't want the time on the beach to end. Shannon was great also and she made the photography fun and so did Todd.
Kind Regards, Cambria and Victor Fernandes Photo

It was a pleasure working with you! Our wedding was a total dream. We really enjoyed meeting Johannes and Todd. They really made our experience memorable. Kauai Island Weddings was a perfect choice for myself and my husband Johnny. Our pictures were amazing! Thank you so much. Love, Lynn & Johnny Cain Photo

Aloha Martina, Just wanna let you know that everything was perfect!!! We were soo happy with both Todd and Johannes. They are such cool guys and so professional. I am glad we chose your services, I can´t even describe it. We have received the DVD with our photos last Wednesday....and honestly I can't stop looking at them since then. They are beautiful, colorful, very professional and they actually show how happy we were that day (I couldn't stop smiling or laughing). Thank you again for making our big day the happiest day of our lives, you are the best and I will tell everyone about you. I wish we could do this every year! Again, thank you very much everything.

Hello, Martina & Mike...
We received the DVD of the pictures yesterday and they are BEAUTIFUL! The photographers both did an excellent job using us to block the other people at the beach! There are so many that it's almost like a video!
Thanks, Christine Kingsley

I would like to take this moment and express our gratitude to you, and everyone at Kauai Island Weddings. Your flexibility, kindness, compassion, and patience is so appreciated that I'm almost at a loss for words. Our special day really was amazing! As we go through this life and experience milestones, our concern that "everything must be perfect" sometimes overrides our chance to just be in that moment. Thanks to you, we got to revel in our moment, one hundred percent. From the bottom of our hearts, Lisa and I wish you all the peace, love and happiness that we feel. Thank you so very much!

Hi Mike and Martina, We just wanted to thank you for your services. Reverend Todd and Johannes were both great to work with. Both of them provided us with instruction and direction that were much needed on a day like that. They made the atmosphere very relaxed and intimate and at the same time allowing us to feel completely comfortable. It was a great experience for the both of us, it was a day we will never forget. We will happily recommend you guys to friends if they decide to get married on the island. Again thank you so much.
Chris and Stephanie Macres

Mike, Thank you so much for making our wedding a stress-free and beautiful day... Everything was perfect and you and the photographers made the whole afternoon so much fun! The pictures are excellent.... I don't know how I am going to pick which ones to print for our wedding album! You captured the emotion of the day perfectly... So again... Mahalo for everything... If you ever need a recommendation for someone feel free to send them my way! Phaedra & Bruce Humphrey Photo

We are unbelievably stoked and happy with the wedding. Shelby told me after that it was a perfect wedding and I can only agree. Everybody that was there has repeatedly told us it was the most perfect wedding they have ever seen or heard of. Beautiful, no hitches, smooth, simple, did I say already beautiful? - just fantastic. I have to get out my thesaurus to come up with more words to describe it.
The pictures are amazing. Breathtaking. Beautiful. You and Johannes did an outstanding job. Really. I have gotten so many compliments already I'm even getting a little tired of it.
If I could award you guys with medals or official commendations I would. The service was perfect. The pictures are amazing. My mother saw them and cried. Me and Shelby feel truly blessed to have been so lucky in choosing you. I'm recommending you to all my friends. You might have some idea of what it means, but I don't think I can put into words how much it meant to us. My immense Thanks to you. Cheers. Todd Shanklin Photo

Hi, Mike and Martina,
I have been meaning to email you for a long time, and things are just so busy! Now, more than four months after spending a week in paradise, I’m finally taking the time to do so!
My husband Mike and I really appreciate that you helped to make our wedding what it was. I have wanted this type of wedding since I was a little girl, but what I got was much better than I ever dreamed it would be. I couldn’t imagine a better – or easier – way to plan a wedding. Your help in getting everything ready – the flowers, the location, the vows, the photography – was incredible. Because of how stress-free you made the day, we could enjoy it 100% without any worries. We enjoyed each other and our families instead, and that is priceless.
We received the wedding book and DVD and are so incredibly impressed. I keep our book in my classroom where teachers and students all love to come and see what our day was like. I hear only wonderful comments about the beautiful pictures you took!
We’d someday like to return to Hawaii – especially the island of Kauai – to share the beauty with our children. And speaking of that, I’d also like to share with you some news! Mike and I are expecting a baby at the end of September!
I hope this message finds you and your family doing well! Thank you again for all you have done for us!

Aloha Martina!
Everything was perfect on our day and we just wanted to thank you for a beautiful ceremony. Mahalo! Sarah Siciliano Photo

Mike and Martina Hough,
We were married on June 22 at Shipwreck Beach. We received our pictures today and were so absolutely amazed! We loved them so very much and again the ceremony and group of gentlemen that performed ceremony (Rev. Todd and Johannes) and pictures were a great team! Thank you for everything! We will be recommending being married by the Hough team on Kauai to everyone that says they are getting married! Thank you, Farrah and Bobby Doman Photo

Hi Martina,
I wanted thank you, Mike, and Johannes for making my wedding day everything that I wanted and more. Mike had Robbie and I calm and relaxed. The ceremony was beautiful and intimate! You made our destination wedding so easy. I would reccommend your services to anyone and everyone!! Thank you for the reccommendation to go to Smiths Luau. It was so much fun.
Thanks again!!! Katie Catalli (Peacock now I guess...) Photo

Aloha Martina,
Hello from the Chapmans, we were so happy with the wedding, everything was above our expectations!
Thanks, Dawn Chapman Photo

The Kauai Country Inn is the most amazing place we have ever stayed. It is so wonderful to arrive to a beautiful Inn and have it already feel like home instead of arriving to some stuffy hotel room. We were happy to find chocolates and champagne waiting for us and loved the beauty and comfort of our suite. We loved waking up each morning to the sunrise coming through our window, the chirping of the birds and geckos and of course the unforgettable roosters! All of the staff was amazing. Thank you so much for making our wedding and honeymoon a stress free, wonderful, fun and beautiful time! We will definitely come back as I'm sure no other hotel or Inn can compare. Chris and Sharon Carvo Photo

Aloha Mike, Todd, Shannon & Staff,
Chris & I would like to thank you for all your hard work putting together our beautiful wedding. It was more than just perfect it exceeded our expectation & was a dream come true, it was beautiful, words can not describe how truly magical it was. Mike you, & your staff took all the work away from us so that we could just relax & enjoy our trip to Kauai. Todd & Shannon we love your personalities, and are so glad that you were able to officiate over our marriage and take all the pictures. It was beautiful, romantic, & fun. We can't wait to see the pictures and receive our book. Sincerely, Kimmi & Chris Patterson Photo

Aloha Mike & Martina,
Wow, that's all I could say when we watched our video. It was brilliantly put together; thank you so much I can not put into words how grateful we are.
I found the perfect groom, now I have the perfect wedding memories to cherish forever.
God Bless You!
Jenny Camacho

Todd and Shannon were absolutely wonderful :) I'm sure you hear that all the time, but we really enjoyed working with them.
Thanks, Danica

Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience. The pictures are amazing, I'm having a hard time choosing which ones I want to print! Shane and I both felt so calm and close to each other that day. We just wanted to thank you for one of the most incredible experiences of our lives.
Thanks again, Shane and Liz Smith
P. S. I hope that rose I gave Mike is coming in handy when showing poses to other couples!

Mike & Martina,
It has been a while since our wedding, but we have been so busy and haven't had a chance to thank you both for the wonderful job you did for our wedding.
The pictures turned out beautiful!  We were so happy with the quality and the professional look they had. Thank you very much! We will enjoy them for a long time!
Mike & Kelly Wareham

Hi Mike,
Thank you for your help prior to our wedding on Oct 19th. We are so pleased with everything.
Mahalo! Rich & Jill Diederich

Hey Mike and Martina,
Now that I finally have some time to do so, I wanted to thank you both again so much for making our day special for the both of us. We loved everything about what Kauai had to offer. The beach was beautiful, the luau was a blast, and of course having a great group of people taking care of us on our wedding day helped too. We love the pictures, and the coffeebooks were a huge hit with the family. We have already referred you all to a couple of our friends that are looking to marry in Hawaii, and one whom I believe you already may have heard from. She told me that her and her soon to be husband would be booking with you after she saw the professionalism that you guys provided us. Again I can't thank you guys enough, you made Nicole and my dreams come true. Mahalo! Kyle Willadsen

To the "Houghs" and staff at the Kauai Country Inn & Kauai Island Weddings,
We want to thank you all for the best vacation, wedding, honeymoon, and experience we could have asked for. Jeff was very friendly, helpful and informative, and a great host at breakfast. Johannes did an outstanding job on the photos...REALLY AMAZING! Todd, thank you for the beautiful ceremony, and Mike, thank you once again for the upgrade and photos being done so quickly. When we return to Kauai, we will definitly be staying with you again.
Sincerely, Crystal & Justin Shaw

Dear Martina and Mike,
Thank you so very much for the beautiful wedding! We could not have asked for anything better! We are both so pleased with how everything went as is everyone else. Our reception at Tidepools was excellent! Thanks for the recommendation. The pictures and the video are beautiful! Again, thank you for everything. We will recommend you to anyone we know who is going to get married in Kauai. Aloha! and Ma halo! Robin and George Donley

We received the pictures of our vow renewal on Lydgate Beach and they are PHENOMENAL! Thank you so much, I was shocked that you sent us over 800 photos, so much more than was promised. Thank you for making the celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary a day to remember. I now have pictures! Yeah! Something we never had from our original ceremony. Sincerely, Vicky & Ron Steele

Thank you SO much for everything. Everything about what you and your family did was perfect. We can not possibly thank you enough, or tell you just how great you were. Thank your son again for us, one more time, for taking those pictures with our camera. It meant so much to our family that were able to upload photos of the wedding so quickly. The pictures are perfect. I can't wait to see the rest. Thanks again. Grant & Jamie Fritschle Photo

Our wedding day was nothing short of amazing! Your son is so dear and we loved Todd as well.
Again, thank you for such a magical day!
Kitty Yntema

Dear Mike, Martina, & Johannes:
Thank you all so much for such a memorable wedding day. It was very romantic and we feel that we just intensified our love for each other with such a beautiful ceremony on our beach. We went back to the same little stretch of Anini Beach the day we left, took pictures of our leis, and then tied them together and threw them into the ocean.
You have made the start to our married lives very special and we are thankful for such a wonderful beginning. The photos made it here yesterday and they are just lovely.
Oh, and while we were on the plane to Honolulu and much to our surprise, there was our favorite Reverend in the Hana Hou! inflight magazine with his Beatles Museum collection. Hopefully next time we can stay at the country inn and check it out.
Our best always, Ed & Jill Tjarks

We thought our wedding was perfect and exactly what we pictured. We have been enjoying the pictures and everyone we show them too is jealous! Thanks for checking in. :)
Megan & Lee Bland

Aloha Martina and Mike,
We wanted to thank you for sending the wonderful coffee table book. We have been spending the last couple of weeks showing it to friends and family and they have all loved it!We were very impressed with the way everything went on the big day and everyone has admired the beautiful photographs. We of course also loved visiting the Beatles museum! It made our honeymoon even more special It brought back Beatlemania to the fullest and a lot of fun memories for us! I will be on the lookout for any interesting Beatles items whenever I go to garage sales as you never know what you might find!
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to any of our friends and family who might want to have a Kauai wedding! It turned out exactly how we wanted it to and it was hard to come home after such an incredible honeymoon! We hope to return to Kauai in the near future and will definitely be looking you up! Thanks again, Carol & Brett Moore

WOW!!! The pictures are great. Monica is absolutely ecstatic with them. Thank you so much!!
