If I could give less than a star, I would. We got married by Bob on April 19th, a dream sunset wedding, for sure. However, the precious pictures that were purchased, taken, and promised less than a week later on April 23 never materialized. On May 8th we were given some excuses, which we were understanding about. We were promised a link to our pictures in 10-14 days. A month later, on June 6th, we were given MORE excused and again promised a link to our pictures in 7-10 days. Since then we have sent an email on June 29, July 7 and July 14 requesting the pictures we paid for, with no response. As of today, July 18, their website is now gone. Please do not waste your money with these people, and check out the Better Business Bureau website, which has multiple complaints that match our own. I think it's pretty rotten that they can't even send us proof they have our pictures in progress. It's not hard to put a watermark on what you have and send it out. We eloped so the pictures they took were our ONLY pictures from the ceremony and evening, so I think it's rather rotten they have disappeared, with our money, with no photos to show for it. We would love to see our pictures and be able to get what we paid for, or at this point, if they do not exist, get a refund. We were also promised a personalized copy of our ceremony, which we also did not receive. Please, watch out for these people. Owners: Mr. Robert LaMarca, President Ms. Lisa LaMarca, Vice President

Found them very hard to get a hold of. Their voicemail states calls returned within 24 hours, never found this to be the case. Was unclear what they would be taking care of and what we should be. Never received follow-up emails or calls as promised. Ceremony was ok, though the officiant forgot to allow us to say our own vows, and it would have been nice to have had more of a say on what was going to be said during the ceremony. Have not seen the photos yet, but did hear from several guests that the photographer missed some key shots, thankfully other family were taking photos.
Overall felt like they were more comfortable handling small elopement weddings, and not a more traditional wedding with guests and planning involved.

My fiance and I eloped in Hawaii and needed a simple, inexpensive way to have a memorable ceremony and get photographs. The ceremony was nice, the weather was perfect. Bob and Lisa my our ceremony memorable.

They are fabulous! I would not trust any other wedding planner for Hawaii. The husband is the officiant. The wife is the photographer. They are very personable and helpful throughout the whole process. Remember, they are on island time. So if you are an anxious bride and want immediate answers, take breaths and trust Helen to work out everything so beautifully and professionally with or without your input. :) You must book with them way in advance. They picked a beautiful spot on the beach with some trees and lava rocks which really added to the pictures. Helen loves to take pictures so you will have so many to choose from. They had our pictures back to us for review in 2 days.
