“Hi, I couldn't decide which picture to choose, so I am sending a few! Our renewal was fabulous, and I am so glad you suggested Kukio Beach! We were worried that it might rain on us, but it never did and as you can tell, we had a gorgeous sunset and a turtle as a witness (a few more were down the beach and a ton in the water!). Kyoko and Rev. Rick were great, and we really loved the musician! Thanks for all your help!!!!”

“Aloha Jennifer, thank you so much for your incredible efforts and great organization for our wedding! Everything went perfectly.. from delicious tasty cakes, great hair-make-up artists, etc. Our minister was wonderful and charming - he was of great assistance in guiding us for the ceremony and even how to place ourselves for various photos. Steve and I are especially pleased with the photography and he was a lot of fun to work with ...running up and down the beach, haha! The flowers were stunning! We all wish we did not have to leave Hawaii as it was a fun memorable holiday for Steve and I and our family and friends.. even a tsunami could not stop the wedding! Thanks again, given the opportunity I would highly recommend your company or service to anyone else planning a destination wedding! Cheers Deb and Steve”

We are also extremely pleased with the photography and videography and have received many compliments on the quality. I would recommend A Fairy Tale Wedding to anyone planning a wedding in Hawaii.”

“As we hit the mainland and embark upon this new phase of our life together - married - yeah! - we do need to take a special moment to catch our breath and acknowledge the beauty, the grace and the wonderful sense of humor you brought to our special beach ceremony at Kukio Beach. Terrific. Everything was so perfect and so extraordinary, and we are going to be savoring the memories forever, along with the incredible pictures you took with our camera. Wow! You Rock Chuck! Again, it was beyond what we ever dreamed of, and the beautiful poetic approach of Jennifer's spirit will remain with us always - very very special - many many thanks.”
Kelly Grant & Tom Demenkoff • New York, NY
“Rev. Stiastny really took the time to get to know us and what we wanted from our ceremony. Thanks to her careful planning, the ceremony went perfectly. Jennifer's flexibility allowed us to incorporate old traditions, new ideas and music, and our own special touches to our ceremony at the Marriott in Wailea. We really appreciate her energy and enthusiasm, and would recommend her kindness and warm spirit to anyone planning a Maui wedding.”
Scott & Shelley Portas • Kihei HI

Michael and Kathleen Reap • Los Angeles CA
“WOW! We have been so blessed by having you in our lives. From the moment I first spoke with you to the actual wedding day, you have been so wonderful and special. You made our day seem like the most important day in your life too!! I loved being able to just leave everything in your hands and not have to worry about anything except what pants Jeff would wear!! Your vendors are the BEST too.The site at Kikaua Point Beach Park was actually paradise and we can't think of anywhere else we would choose to marry. Thank you and warmest of Aloha to you.”
Cheryl & Jeff Hardig • Folsom CA
“I wanted to thank you SO much for making my wedding day absolutely perfect! As you might recall (Jennifer), I went into a bit of panic mode a week or two before the wedding. Even though you told me your motto was "all you have to do is show up", I was afraid to just do so. I can be a micro-manager at times and don't usually put all of my trust into someone else's planning. I must say, all of my worrying was completely unnecessary. You were wonderful!

Everything about my special day exceeded even my expectations - the flowers, the photographer and even the location. I cannot stop looking at my pictures and wishing that I was there all over again! Several of my guests have told us that our wedding was the most beautiful wedding that they have ever attended. And I must say, that is an awful lot coming from some of my guests! The sights, the sounds, the weather and breeze - all were breathtaking! Thank you so much for everything. If given a choice, I would celebrate my wedding in exactly the same fashion -minus the worry! I will recommend a destination wedding in Hawaii and A Fairy Tale Wedding to anyone planning a wedding! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”
Tasha and Rusty Smith • Marrero LA
“Thank you for everything, it was perfect at Makena Cove! Talk about making Maui memories, Josie is a big one. I sent a photo so you could see her. Aloha.”
The Brooks Family • Centralia IL
“Haruna and I wanted to thank you once again for the beautiful wedding. Haruna was very happy. I, myself, am grateful for how reassuring you were, especially when I had thought I'd left the document for our marriage at our hotel. Most important was the advice you gave me to imagine that no one else was around besides Haruna. Also, all our guests were impressed with the ceremony, location, sunset, everything!”
Joy and Haruna Jamir • Tokyo Japan
“Jim and I wanted to take a minute to thank you for the beautiful ceremony. You truly made our special day one to remember forever. Our friends and family are still talking about how beautiful it was. Having Fairy Tale Weddings in charge made our wedding completely stress free. Everything that was ordered was beyond our expectations. My bridal bouquet was so gorgeous that the picture online could not even do it justice. Now that we have settled in our new home and received the wonderful news that we have a little one on the way, we couldn't be any happier! Thanks again for a truly wonderful day!”
Jim and Rachel Bales • Longview WA
“The ceremony in Wailea, Maui was truly one of our most cherished and memorable moments. The Reverend was very pleasant and made us feel as if we had known her all of our lives. She added beauty, peace, and harmony to our very special day”

Hawaii will forever and alway's remain in our hearts as a very special and magical place. We can't wait to return in the future for an anniversary and really hope that we happen to be there at the very time that your there with another couple on the same beach! Thank you. Much love and God Bless.”

“We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our wedding day at Kikaua Point Beach Park. Ray and I had such a fabulous time! You certainly had a big part in making our day so special and memorable and we thank you. Our pictures are fantastic! The shots were so unique and romantic and also allowed for our family and friends to re-live the moment through the photos. You most definitely made our wedding into a "Fairy Tale Wedding"! The resources and experience that you have in your 'bag of tricks' is top notch. We look forward to returning to renew our vows. How could we not return to the mainland with a little bit of Hawaii in our hearts. And you can take credit for that!!!”
Julie & Ray Handy • Portland ME

“We were very pleased with the wedding ceremony you performed on Valentine's Day 1999. The ceremony was exactly what we wanted. We had a wonderful time in Hawaii and hope to return again soon. Thanks again.”
Dennis & Linda Neumann • Highland IL
“From our very first communication with you we have been impressed with the effort you made to let us know everything would be taken care of. That feeling alone provided us with much needed peace of mind, especially being that we live in California and our wedding was being planned in Hawaii.

We honestly felt you were as excited about our wedding day as were we and our families. The immediate response to our e-mails provided us with absolute reassurance. Each correspondence was filled with your gentle kindness as well as pure attentiveness to us and our wedding. We felt as though we were your only clients and you spent 11 months planning every detail of our wedding alone - now that's service! Your calm voice and warm heart alleviated any stressful situations we thought we may encounter through the planning process.

Our wedding was glorious, breathtaking, lovely, intimate, soulful, spiritual, magical and full of aloha. From the flower petal aisle to the hair and makeup guru to the attention you paid to our family to make them feel special, we were amazed that our wedding could be so spectacular! The gifts of aloha seem to just keep flowing in as we have received our photos in the mail as well as our video. We have watched our wedding video at least 10 times and we are moved to tears each time.

The wedding of our dreams became our reality simply because of our love for one another, our love for our family, and A Fairy Tale Wedding. You are in our warmest thoughts and sweetest prayers.”
David & Shannon McNeill • Chatsworth CA
“Our wedding ceremony was absolutely perfect! Not only were we in the most beautiful setting imaginable, the words you used and the vows we exchanged were truly indicative of our feelings for each other. Hopefully we can visit you again to renew our vows, thanks again.”
Matt & Emily Stangl • Norman OK
“Hawaii is our idea of paradise, so when we decided to get married we knew we wanted to have our wedding in Hawaii. Our ceremony, on a cliff overlooking Kapalua Bay, one of the most beautiful bays on the island, was perfect. It will give us many wonderful memories for years to come.”
Roy & Roseanne Murdoch • San Jose CA
“I just got the video today in the mail. Everything was so beautiful. I am so happy I ordered the video because on the day of the wedding, everything felt so surreal (like a dream) that I don't think I really was aware of everything that was happening. It was an incredible gift to be able to watch the whole wedding all over again. Please tell any bride considering a video, that she simply MUST do it!! I am going to watch this video over and over again... When we look at the photos, and now the video, we can't believe how incredibly lucky we were to find you. The weather was gorgeous. You made a perfect wedding for us, even more than we could have ever imagined. From the first moment we talked on the phone, you made all our fears fall away. You made us so comfortable. I know I am a stress-case, so you have to have a very special touch to handle a nutter like me! All of our friends have told us it was the best wedding they have ever been to! We have been to so many "cookie cutter" weddings and ours was so unique and wonderful. The flowers were superb, and the cake was fabulous!! It was just perfect. You were calm, warm, loving and sweet. It was so neat to finally meet you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the most perfect day of our lives! You made the dream of a gorgeous sunset wedding come true!!”
Erin & Rob Molholm • Marin County CA

“Hawaii is truly paradise, the ceremony was absolutely beautiful and breathtaking. Everything was perfect, the location, the flowers, the cake, the limo. The pictures and video are so magical! The only thing we regret was forgetting to take a picture with you. Next time! I'll miss talking to you and going over the same plans over and over with you! (driving you nuts! Haha). We will never forget you! When we think of Hawaii there will always be a special place in our hearts for you. Jennifer you are a genuine person. You helped make my dream wedding come true. I thank God for putting the wedding in your hands along with His!”
Lisa & Brian Breunig • New York NY

Thomas & Jillian Rietow • Kona HI
“Our feeling about our marriage was magical. The scenery, atmosphere, & service. Standing there barefoot in the sand at Kukio Beach saying our vows was so intense, we'll never forget, it was wonderful and will live in our hearts forever. Thank you for making that day so very, very special.”
Kathy & Phil Surtees • Stockport, England
“We just wanted to tell you what a wonderful job you did in coordinating and officiating our wedding, we couldn't have been happier! I'm often asked if it was hard or stressful planning a wedding so far from home. My answer is ... it couldn't have been easier or more stress free with the help of A Fairy Tale Wedding!!! It was exactly what we were looking for and it was as if you had known us for years! Thank you again for helping make our wedding day a "Fairy Tale" come true!! Aloha and Mahalo.”

It was truly "A Fairy Tale Wedding" - Mahalo”

“Hello, both Leroy and I wanted to tell you how special you made our day. Right now at work one of the girls is planning her wedding and going crazy and I have to laugh because our ceremony was so easy and so perfect. You made it a very comfortable, easy experience where we could focus on the vows and what we meant to each other and the beautiful surroundings at Kikaua Point Beach Park. It was so perfect in a way it was surreal. There are no words to thank you for such a wonderful job and creating the "perfect day" for us. Thank You So Much!”
Liz Hoffman & Leroy Winans • Tacoma WA
“Thank you so much for the wonderful wedding ceremony you performed for us. We expected to have a great time but the location was so perfect that it was almost unbelievable.

Thanks again...”

Kerry and Tiffany Vinci • Boston MA
“What can I say but beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!!! My pictures and video are breathtaking. Everybody (friends, family, co-workers) raved about them. I could go on and on about how wonderful and relaxing the wedding was. You made us feel very comfortable. We are both very proud. If I were to do it all over again, I wouldn't change one thing. I couldn't have had a more perfect wedding without you. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You were excellent.”
Lori & Michael Lober • Pittsburgh PA
“Everything about our wedding was wonderful and just as you assured it would be. I don't know if you recall but Pat and I tended to be pretty hands off on the planning, trusting it to your discretion. We both felt in the end that not only did we get the wedding that we dreamed of, but we didn't have any of the stresses that a couple would normally have. It was perfect and given the chance, I wouldn't do it any other way. The photos and video were exceptional! We had them both at our doorstep by the time we returned from our honeymoon and were blown away by the quality and the romance and joy that was so apparent in the video. Please keep being the wonderful wedding planners and special people that you are...”
Stacey & Pasaquale Scirocco • New Haven CT
“Thank you so much for the absolutely perfect wedding! From start to finish, the wedding was like the fairytale of our dreams...magical and beautiful in every way. The white stretch limo, the carefully hand-crafted bouquet and boutonniere, the fabulous photographer, the angel-like voice of Charity our guitar player, the caring attention of Holly, the breath-taking location on Anini Beach...each carefully planned detail seemed to flow effortlessly. You made the ceremony come alive with love, joy, peace, and happiness. We are eternally grateful to have shared the most special day with you! Thank you so much for your hard work and care in creating the wedding of our dreams. I really appreciate the personal attention and consultation before the wedding. I felt connected and close to you both through your wonderful e-mails and phone calls. We are going to frame the vows and hang them in our bedroom as a constant reminder of our commitment and joy of being united together in marriage. The vows are beautiful and heartfelt...they are just perfect! We wish you continued success and happiness! You have been such a blessing to us! Mahalo and God Bless!”
