My husband and I have been married for 25 years and decided to renew our vows in Hawaii. After searching online for quite awhile, I found Dream Weddings Hawaii and Steve Young. Boy, am I glad I did!! From Saskatoon, Canada, Steve coordinated all the details including location, minister, photography and flowers. There were other add-ons, but these were the ones I chose.
It was just my husband and I and it was the most romantic day of our lives. We had a lot of fun too! Steve and Elias (minister) were friendly, relaxed and professional. After the service, we took a lot of photos and they turned out AMAZING. He took his time to make sure he would get just the right shot.
Steve was friendly, prompt and knowledgeable. We just had to show up and the turnaround for our pics was not that long.
I give Steve 5/5 on all accounts and highly recommend him for any type and size of wedding. He will ensure you don't have to worry about anything!
Dream Weddings Hawaii did a great job of helping us plan our Hawaii wedding. Steve took care of everything and the experience was completely stress free. The pictures and video were beautiful. We couldn't have asked for more. Thank you Dream Weddings Hawaii!
After contacing Steve at Dream Weddings Hawaii about helping with our wedding, I was confident he would do a great job! I stayed in contact with him over the next year and when we arrived everything was ready, all we had to do is show up! The wedding was perfect and my husband and I look forward to renwing our vows and working with Steve again!
My husband and I got married Jul 2nd, 2014. I can't even describe how amazing of an experience we had with Steve and Minister Parker. They truly made our day beautiful, sacred and very special. The ceremony was so amazing although it was only the two of us. And the photos turned out better that I have ever expected. Steve made us feel very comfortable and the photography was a lot of fun. Overall, we had an unforgettable day that we will remember for the rest of our lives. God bless you both, Mr.Young for your wonderful talent, and Mr.Parker for your wise words that made our day the most beautiful day in our lives. This was truly a DREAM WEDDING. Mahalo from both of us.

I can't recommend Steve enough. He did our wedding a year and a half ago and did an excellent job. His communicating via email was great and he even met us at our bed & breakfast to let us follow him to our wedding location the day of. Top notch service for sure! We loved the preacher that he used also! The photos were beautiful. I spent probably 6 months researching wedding companies in Oahu, Hawaii and can't tell you that he was most definitely the right choice!
Dream Weddings Hawaii was the best move I made in planning my wedding. Steve got everything arranged including the venue, the pastor, pictures all on a weeks notice. The everything exceeded expectations and the pictures were awesome. Steve is hard working and always willing to go the extra mile to make sure your big day goes smoothly. I would definitely recommend him. You won't regret it.
Steve organised the perfect wedding for us in Hawaii. Great location, wonderful Minister and amazing photos for such a great price. Steve even organised our limo and his suggested hair and makeup artist was super too. Overall Steve offered fantastic service!
If you're looking for an affordable, romantic, and authentic Hawaiian wedding, Dream Weddings Hawaii is the wedding planner for you.
From the very first contact, Steve at DWH was the most personable, accessible, and honest person we dealt with when planning our wedding in Hawaii.
Coming from Japan, there were some risks in terms of not knowing location details, where to hold the reception, etc. Steve provided some recommendations that were spot on and left us as well as our family and friends with a wonderful experience in Waikiki.
He knows exactly which spots on the island to get the best photos at the right times for what you want. He told me that he still uses film rather than digital because it captures skin tones better (among other things) and you can see the results right on the Dream Weddings Hawaii website (http://www.dreamweddingshawaii.com).
If you're still undecided about your wedding in Hawaii, just give him a call or send him an email and he will be available to any question or concern you have.
Steve was a very professional photographer. All the photo's were awesome. We have the best photo's of our private wedding to show our family and friends. I highly recommend Steve as a wedding photographer.
My name is Jessica I used dream wedding services when my friend and I did a wonderful double wedding with our fiancées. We found Steve via internet. As soon as we talked to him we knew right away he was the guy for us! He was such a wonderful wedding planner. He helped us find the make up artist we used for our special day. He put together our ideas into the most wonderful wedding day ever! The package that we choose included flowers, photos, leis for the guys and a song of our choice to walk down to our husbands 2! We were able to write our own vows! The photos that he took of us on our special day were absolutely beautiful. If u have a choice choose dream weddings! Steve is a phenomenal wedding planner! I would choose him every time!
Steve at Dream Weddings Hawaii was amazing to work with. He is someone who really prides himself in the quality of his work, and the only vendor I looked into that called me back immediately to discuss everything instead of taking days to respond to my emails like the others which was refreshing. His photography and videography work is impeccable in a place where things can get cheesy very fast. Out of every site that I looked at his was the only one that did not have a "Vegas" feel to it. He truly knows how to take photos and video that capture emotion. The minister he hired for us, Elias, was wonderful. He gave us a beautiful ceremony that we will remember forever! We are clients for life, and will definitely be calling Steve again in another 10 years!
We were 100% satisfied with every aspect of service. The website has an excellent lay out & you can see his work with package options & pricing. He was prompt with his communication & even offered advice regarding hotels & restaurants. Our pictures were amazing & we couldn't have been happier with everything. I would definitely recommend Dream Weddings Hawaii to anyone!!
Dream Weddings Hawaii is the best value you can find. Steve is a true artist. He is very creative and detail oriented. I work in Media in NYC and can say that his talent is among the best. Further, he knows all the ins and outs of Hawaii. He can recommend fabulous beaches based on different weather patterns and time to day to capture striking photos and video.
He has great connections with all kinds of local vendors. Perhaps, most importantly: his fee is very reasonable. I shopped extensively and still can't believe the package he put together for us! Steve is a great guy and is very easy to work with. Pick Dream Weddings Hawaii and relax- you will have very little stress, and will truly enjoy your special day. Also, Elias Parker is a fabulous Minister!
Dream Weddings Hawaii does it all! They take care of the whole event and provide photography excellence that captures the day beautifully! Steve was so easy to work with and made our special day the best. Planning a destination wedding can be nerve wracking because you are dependent on your wedding planner to pull it all together and you don't know till you get there if it is right. Steve takes the worry out of that process and actually makes the process fun and worry free! He is a great planner, executed, and photographer! He provides superior service on all levels and is an easy going down to earth person and great to work with! Do yourself a favor and choose Dream Wedding Hawaii and enjoy!
It was perfectly organized, all went very smooth and it was the most beautiful day of my life.
I couldn't have asked for more. The pictures that Steven Young took where more then I could have imagined.
He captured moments, that would have been lost in time and are very natural. He is an expert in making you look like a movie star :-) !
Rev. Ilias Parker did the ceremony. Together they are wonderful and you have the "locals" that besides doing this in a very loving way also know the best locations of course!
What can I say, being a photographer myself it was a magnificent experience and if I could do it all over I wouldn't change a thing!
