Aloha Howie, Jodi, and Sara,

Since Susanne and I left Oahu, we have wanted to send you an “Aloha” from us in Germany. As always, unfortunately as well after such a beautiful vacation, the daily life grabs you and time passes quickly. So I mentioned this morning that we are now more than two months married and I really should sit and write you this e-mail.

We really want to thank you for making the 8th of September the most beautiful and wonderful day in our lives. It was like a dream came true.  From our first contact with you, we had a good feeling that you were the right team – which was 100% confirmed on our wedding day. And, this definitely includes your photographer. Fernando was a very warm and nice person who gave us such a comfortable feeling. The pictures you sent on the DVD and photo album (mahalo for the upgrade) are so beautiful, even without digital Botox.

We are especially thankful for the deep thoughts of Howie about what makes a relationship so special and strong, his words were 100% right for our ceremony, as we had a really hard start into this year. After our wedding at Waimanalo Beach, we enjoyed the evening at the “House Without a Key” and “Orchids” which were great recommendations. That was the perfect finish for a perfect day.

Mahalo again and kind regards,

Susanne and Sebastian Bartel
