HAWAII WEDDING REFERENCES
Pasting letters and emails from our sweet couples
Aloha Aki, So nice to hear from you...married life is great. Didn't take
us long however to miss
Hawaii and start planning our next trip back out your way! We can't thank
you enough for making our
wedding day so memorable-trying to figure out something uniquely Canadian
to send you in gratitude.
Our picture looks great! It was a happy day , one that I shall remember always.
Hope all is well with you.
We are back in the hustle and bustle that is everyday life here in Toronto,
no time to relax :<
Oh and the snow...it just keeps coming down. Miserable weather. I long for
Take care, Talk to you soon. Tracy and Jason
Aki, I just looked through your gallery. That picture is beautiful
and means so much
to Freddie and I that you would include us in your web site. I've just e-mailed
it to all of my family and friends. Freddie and I were just sitting down last
night looking through all of our pictures from the wedding.
It was the most beautiful thing I've ever experienced. My sister Dena, the
one that was with us,
had mentioned how much she liked you. She said she watched you through most
of the ceremony
and thought you looked so sincere and said you looked as though you truly
cared about the whole ceremony.
I want to thank you for doing such a great job. Freddie and I are having our
formal wedding reception
this Saturday for all of our friends and family. We are showing the video
a couple of times throughout
the reception. I just met with a florist yesterday to try and make our lei's
and haku for the reception.
It will never be a beautiful as Hawaii but I'll do my best. Thank you for
keeping in touch.
I'll e-mail you after the reception. Love, Lara & Freddie
Aloha Aki, Thank you for helping us make such beautiful wedding
memories in Hawaii!
The wedding ceremony was a dream come true...simple yet beautiful and intimate.
The wedding ceremony and vows was truly special and beautiful.
We were really happy to have you as our Reverend to perform the ceremony!
We will definitely recommend you to our friends!
Attached we have forwarded a few of our wedding pictures.
The ceremony and vows were so beautiful---we were wondering if you can forward it
so that we can treasure those words forever.
Thank you again for helping us create beautiful wedding memories!
Hawaii was the best! Florence and Tong Lee
Dear Aki: We just wanted to take a few moments to thank you for
such a beautiful ceremony.
We deeply appreciated your personal involvement. The scenery was beautiful,
the words spoken sacred
to our hearts, and the love we share is now bound together for eternity.
When you reached the part of the ceremony where you asked if we had anything
we would like to say to each other, Jennifer was taken back a little.
She thought I had orchestrated that and had prepared something to say.
This is because we went to the Paradise Cove Luau,
and unbeknownst to her, I had her pulled on stage
and formally proposed to her in front of over 1,000 people that evening.
We have received the pictures back and they are utterly perfect.
We are forwarding one of the three of us, and one of us together.
Thank you so much for helping to make our dreams come true and for sharing
in our happiness.
We are truly blessed to have found each other, and to have made a new friend
Aloha, Jeff and Jennifer Eads
Our daughter and her partner were married in Hawaii. All the arrangements
were made via the internet with Rev Aki who was very efficient
and helpful. We took his advice about the wedding venue and
could not have been more delighted, it was truly beautiful.
Rev Aki made all our arrangements and all we had to do was
be at the right place at the right time. The cars supplied
were immaculate, the photographer was great, totally unintrusive,
also the videographer. Photographs were delivered the next
day, presented in an album. The ceremony was lovely, partly
in Hawaiian and partly in English with the bride and groom
given the opportunity to say something special to each other.
We are planning another wedding next year for our younger
daughter and would not hesitate to recommend Rev Aki's services.
Sincerely, Chris Morris, the father of the bride
Aki made our dream wedding possible.
He helped us create memories that will last us a lifetime. The location was
and the people were fun. Start to finish: it was perfect.
If you are thinking about getting married in Hawaii, we recommend Reverend
Aki over any other.
Thank you so very much, Jason and Jaymi Taylor
P.S. Our pictures were amazing!
Dear Aki! Thank you for email. Yes, we will be happy to write a reference
Rev. Aki is a personable minister with a warm heart. He was flexible with
and the changes at the last minutes. He emailed back to us on the same day
all the time.
That was impressive! He even delivered our wedding album to our hotel in person.
We look like a pair of models in those pictures. He's got a great photographer.
Aki used one of our pictures on his website to our honor.
Our hawaii wedding was such a memorable experience thanks to his help.
Aki, thank you again. Please keep in touch. Tim and Madrine
Aki, we were so pleased with the service you prepared . It was absolutely
The flowers, the setting, the ceremony , the video and the pictures presented

we would have chosen.

Aloha Aki, I just wanted to drop a line and let you know how much we appreciated your services.
I am so glad we found you. Your flexibility was outstanding and allowed us to have our dream wedding.
You were the only minister we found who was willing to customize the ceremony to the extent that we wished.
Your attention to detail was fantastic, and we loved the special touches, like the toast and the sand necklaces.
I know some of our friends/videographer were quite late, and we are so thankful that you were able to accommodate the wait.
Beginning with the planning stages, and right up through the end of the ceremony, your communication and support were excellent.
Everyone thought the ceremony was absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much for being part of our wedding!
Mahalo, Cathleen and Dan
Dear Aki, Sorry it's taken so long for me to write. It's been a very busy few
months. I wanted to THANK YOU so much for making our wedding
wonderful. I honesty could not have asked for a better person
to share our special day with us. You were so personable and
made us feel very comfortable. I loved the punch toast--what
a great bonus!! My family loved you as well. My step-dad even
hung a photo up of us with you in his man-cave!!!! I would
highly recommend you for any couples looking for a wonderful
officiant. Feel free to use me as a reference if you ever
need one. I've attached a few photos from the wedding. Again,
thank you so much for being awesome!!! Mark & Danielle

such a beautiful and memorable occasion. From the presentation
of leis, to the beautiful words chosen to unite us, to the

the magic ... our wedding day was simply amazing! You helped
us create such special memories that will carry us through
the rest of our days. With our appreciation and gratitude,
