Having doubts about "Above Heavens Gate" for our ceremony...

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to tell you that thanks to Above Heaven's Gate and Rev. Captain Howie, I had the wedding of my dreams!! As crazy as it sounds, I had 4 weeks to plan for a wedding in a place where I had never been and knew absolutely not a single person there. I literally had everything planned and ready in only 2 weeks thanks to their help. I was very nervous and had to put trust in someone, right? All I can say is NO REGRETS!! And I recommend them without any doubts. Rev. Captain Howie is very kind. He made us feel very welcomed. The beach where the ceremony was performed is breath taking! And very quiet and private. We had pics done at the falls and the ceremony performed on the beach as I wanted pics of both. We used their photographer and videographer....awesome job!! They put the pics in a beautiful flip-page album dubbed with music on a DVD...would be great to show during your reception back home. We also got an amazing wedding video edited with music and Hawaiian scenery. This would also be great to show at your reception for those who were not able to attend your wedding. My friends and family ask to see the pics and video all the time, even now 2 years later.

    Good luck to you and remember to take time to enjoy your special day!!

Hello...from Kansas


Was just reading about your concerns, and totally understand where you are coming from on having doubts with who you might have chose for your wedding ceremony, especially if not from that part of the country. I feel that is a normal feeling. I plan on getting married in December 2012, there are so many wedding planners you can choose from and no matter which one you might choose your gonna feel that way. When I seen Captain Howies sight, not sure if wierd would be the word I would want to use, but I liked the uniqueness of things he had to offer. He seems very up front about it all. Remembering him saying "he is not for everyone".

When we are so far from home no matter who we choose, we are taking a chance, but we will have each other and will make it a fun adventure no matter what.


Wish you the best

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
