Hi Kathy,

I just wanted to leave you a heartfelt Mahalo nui loa for all the help with my wedding on Oct 17th. Kaleo (the officiant) was kind, funny and most of all deeply spiritual and clearly respectful of his Hawaiian heritage and the beauty and wonder of nature. We greatly appreciated his words of sharing love and joy.

He has great spirit! I am so grateful to have booked the traditional Hawaiian Ceremony rather than regular ceremony. We are also so glad we added the Hawaiian element to our ceremony. It made is special. The conch, the prayer, the Hawaiian blessings and the lei exchange was so unique and fun! It just added so much depth and valuable memories. The next day, John and I went an "released" our lei's from the leis we exchanged during the ceremony.

Again Mahalo!! Thanks for making a special event even more so....and for making planning so simple!!!
To have combined this trip with 'work' on Maui and Oahu (plus living in the Midwest) - time was limited...you made it so easy.

And not to brag - but I worked for Fairmont Hotels / Resorts and you surpassed my rather high expectations...I WILL HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU AND THE SERVICES!!!

PERFECT!!!

Most sincerely
Michelle and John Kelly

Kathy was amazing! After a few phone conversations I definitely felt very comfortable with her. She was very educated of the Oahu area and wedding sites along with all the rules, regulations and fees. She was always punctual and lead us in the right direction with every step we took. She was a pleasure to work with and I would highly reccommend her and her services to everyone. Micheal was our officiant and what a delight he was! We smiled the whole time with some laughs and enjoyed our wedding ceremony so much! One of Kathy's referrals was Oahu photography and Fernando was amazing!! We are thrilled with our pictures. It was a perfect day with perfect memories!

On very short notice, Kathy Porter's Aloha Bridal was able to give us the simple, yet meaningful wedding we desired. Not only was Kathy friendly, but very professional and knowledgeable. She was very easy to work with, and on top of that, when the weather conditions weren't the greatest, Kathy was able to adjust our ceremony time. The photographer and musician she provided were terrific. We would not hesitate to recommend Kathy and her company to any bride-to-be.

What else then WOW, can we say from Kathy and her cie. We were on hawaii for a 3 week stay with our kid. Being from canada, it was hard to work all of this out but finding Kathy on the web made me realized that it could be sooo easy. She came to see us a few days before, showed us different site, was so kind and friendly. The ceremony itself was much more then we expected. The minister took us back in time and made us relive then commitment of being married. We just LOVED every part of it and ... Can't wait to do it again on 5 or 15 years from now ! THANK YOU AGAIN for everything Kathy.

We hired Aloha Bridal Gallery for our March 3 wedding at Marriott Ko Olina Beach Club. Kathy was very helpful during the upcoming months of planning. We talked over email and phone several times. When we arrived she came to our room and steamed all of the girls dresses, my dress and my husbands suit personally and wore white gloves to be sure that nothing got on our attire. Our ceremony was exactly how we planned it! Kathy is amazing and I would highly recommend her!

I can't express how lucky we are to have chosen Kathy as our wedding planner when we decided to have our ceremony in the Ko'olina area. We planned the wedding from the mainland without any prior visit, and her level of expertise and knowledge of the site and surrounding area made the planning process simple and stress-free! She was always accessible via email, phone and text, and she recommended an awesome photographer and wonderful ukulele player. When we met with her a few days before the wedding she gave us a thorough walk-through of the beach where we'd be married, and an accurate scenario of what to expect before, during and after the ceremony. She's a fantastic person to work with and we are so grateful for all her help with arranging our destination wedding!

I always had to contact Kathy numerous times before I got a reply. She was very nice and friendly but was not prepared nor organized. She ordered food at a drive through during one of our calls which I thought was really unprofessional.
In the end everything ended up fine but it had made me very anxious to see that she wasn't prepared during the rehearsal.
Rev. Hoogerwerf was also very hard to get a hold of - he was too busy to meet with us and we ended up with a style of officiant that we didn't want. He was really dry and boring - we had wanted someone more casual and funny.
No one could hear the ceremony musician - guess I'll have to see our wedding video to hear the music.

Kathy helped us plan the wedding of our dreams. The biggest benefit to using Kathy is her wedding packages, they can't be beat. She has lots of options and they are excellently priced.

Kathy was referred to me by another wedding coordinator who couldn't accommodate our 10th yr vow renewal, and I'm so glad she did. Kathy knew exactly what we wanted. Simple, painless, and beautiful. Our event was simply magical, and our family raved about how perfect the day was. Everything was just as we imagined. Kathy was such a wonderful coordinator --- responsive, prompt, super easy to get a hold of, and very flexible. Thank you, Kathy, for such an amazing experience.

One of our biggest concerns was transporting the wedding dress. We ended up putting the dress inside a carry-on and taking on the plane with us. Once there Kathy at Aloha Bridal steamed dress and it was perfect. Kathy was very friendly and helpful. Everything went perfect.

We were looking for a simple beach wedding. There were only 10 people in attendance. Aloha took care of all the details which allowed the wedding to go off without any problems. It was everything my daughter wanted, and the day was perfect.

A-mazing posted 7/24/2012

A friend of mine recommended Kathy to me after she raved about how easy breezy her wedding almost a year before ours turned out. From the beginning, Kathy was super helpful, accommodating and pleasant. She set up a limo to meet us at the airport, and met us at our hotel with our fresh lei's. She took my gown and my husbands suit the evening we got there to have them pressed and fluffed up. Considering we never met Kathy face to face until we got to Hawaii two days before our ceremony, my husband and I were very happy with the outcome. The priest, Rodney (very hard to say Hawaiin name:-) Arias was just awesome, the photographer was the easiest person to deal with and the ukelele player was just the right note. I don't think I have enough space here to share with you the amount of care and detail Kathy dedicated to our stay. FYI, we stayed at the JW Marriott Ihilani and ask Kathy about the completely fabulous gift registry we talked them into setting up for us which was BEYOND anything we could've asked for... They'll even put your engagement photo on their website where your loved ones can make your stay an unforgettable dream come true. Kathy has a great relationship with them and everything from the make up artist/hairstylist to the concierge knew who she was. We opted to splurge and have all our guest join us for a luau at Paradise Cove, YES, they also have a great relationship with Kathy. She's the total package when it comes to taking the pressure off you and just letting your stay be a once in a lifetime deal. The only thing I wish we could've secured was one of the sunset slots for the ceremony. The sunsets on that side of the island are beautiful and those time slots are incredibly popular. Our guests traveled thousands of miles to be with us, and they have yet to stop raving about how amazingly relaxed but classy everything turned out. We hope you have as beautiful a time as we did and hope to see you on one of our trips back to enjoy our new favorite vacation home.... Congratulations!

Kathy was great. She was very nice, very professional, considerate, picked a great location, Secret Beach, Kapolei, on the island of Oahu. She wasn't over priced. I would recommend Aloha Bridal to anywone who would want something small, (as my ceremony was) but just as beautiful. We had a really great experience w/them.

A few months ago, we used AlohaBridal Gallery to plan and officiate our wedding vow renewal ceremony, and it was fabulous! We were under their care for our first wedding, too, 10 years ago. We were so pleased with the wonderful job they did then, that we just had to go back to Hawaii and do it again! Everything was planned out for us, from our beautiful leis to which shoes (or not) to wear. The day before the ceremony, Kathy Porter took us to the location to make sure we loved it, which of course, we did. We got re-married around 3:30 in the afternoon, and it was lovely. Kathy took tons of pictures, and they all turned out great! The minister was wonderful and even threw in some humor. I wish I could do that day all over again!I had no stress--only to look pretty. (= I reccommend this company to everybody who wants a beautiful Hawaiian wedding, but doesn't want all the stress connected with it. The folks at Aloha Bridal Gallery will take care of EVERYTHING for you. We had a perfect day, and I will be forever grateful to them for making it that way.
