Oahu Hawaii Wedding Review by Jessica

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

It is now time to write my review of vendors for our legal wedding in Oahu, Hawaii. Since this is only a legal ceremony, we had only a few vendors but we had the best!

 

Officiant - Reverend Alice Inoue - A+++++

This woman is a blessing! The words she spoke at our ceremony made Jed and I feel that we were truly blessed to have found each other. I cried more at this ceremony than at our wedding in Cabo because her words were so heartfelt and so true. Rev. Alice is the best known officiant in Oahu for a reason! She is a wonderful human being. We promised her that she will be our officiant for our wedding renewals in the future.

Hair and Make-up: Jacque Rojas - A

The reason I could not give Jacque an A+ is because she does not do airbrush make-up. But Jacque is very talented and is a true professional. She uses Make-up Forever which is a brand professional make-up artists use. She has a lot of experience with on location photoshoots which is what I was looking for since we moved to different locations during the photo shoot.

 

She was very patient with me and devoted a lot of time to me (three hours!). She was very attentive and really listened to what I wanted. As you can see from the pictures, I love what she did to my hair and make-up. Even though I did not have airbrush make-up, my make-up held up well considering that we shot for six hours.

Photographer - Ed Pingol Photography - A+++++++

I found out about Ed from the website of Matt Adcock for professional photographers. Ed works with his wife Monica and they make a great team. The moment we saw their work, we knew we wanted Ed as our photographer. Since Ed is based in California, we scheduled our legal ceremony in Hawaii at the time that Ed will be travelling to Oahu. We were not disappointed with our decision. Ed is an outstanding photographer and we truly believe that with his passion and dedication to his craft, he will be one of the most important wedding photographers of our time.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
