We are Michael and Leah Noble and we have been in the Hawaii Wedding business since the mid eighties, working with the top people in the industry.
Back in those days our clients all were locals with the average wedding including three locations and 300 of their nearest and dearest! We loved it and we loved them, however, as the high energy couple we are, we preferred to work a lot more than on weekends and once we added visitor destination weddings to our repertoire, we had found our niche.
Our video won first place in the 2010 Destination Weddings wedding video contest, allowing the bride who submitted it to get a new camera, LOL.
Another year one of our bride's wedding photos was featured on the cover of the wedding issue of her local mainland newspaper.
Weddings are our passion. Our specialty is customer service, prompt attention to detail, which includes answering emails and phone calls immediately, and delivery of the finished product before the couple leaves the island. We love what we do! And just as important, we have the A-team!
Have a question?
Call or email us your phone number and we will give you our undivided attention!

But enough about us, let's talk about the Hawaiian Language! It is a beautiful sounding language and almost all the vowels are pronounced. For instance, people pronounce Hanauma Bay han-ow-ma when it is actually han ah oo mah. But if you are going there to snorkel, just bring your gear and never mind how you pronounce it. As long as you can say mask and fins, and you keep your feet off the coral, you'll be fine!
Some phrases that are fun to know are below. The first two are actually considered "local", and have been incorporated into the language of Hawaii over the generations:
Kim Chee: If you are in trouble you are in deep kim chee!
Broke your mouth: Deeeeelicious! "That meal broke my mouth!"
Aloha: Hello, goodbye, I love you. Showing Aloha to a friend is treating them with kindness!
Pilikia: Trouble (being in deep kim chee!)
Holo holo: To travel around
Mahalo: Thank you
E Komo Mai: Welcome
Mele Kalikimaka: Merry Christmas!
Hau'oli Makahiki Hou: Happy New Year!
Humuhumunukunukuapuaa: The state fish.
I used to teach the name of the state fish to all my clients until word got around that Leah made everybody learn to pronounce it. Not true, it is OPTIONAL!
But enough about the Hawaiian language, let's talk about US!
