We are proud to sponsor our second professional on Hawaii’s Wedding Professionals, Dukes Limousine for the month of September.  We are pleased to sponsor them with $6,700.00 worth of advertising on our television show on OC16 and will continue to support other companies or individuals by offering them sponsorships too!!


There is nothing as rewarding to a business than having satisfied and happy customers and because the staff at Duke’s Limousine provides excellent service, they abound with wonderful testimonials from their wedding couples.  In this episode of Hawaii’s Wedding Professionals, we open with a testimonial from William and Janelle Montero, a newly married couple who share their wedding day experience in Duke’s Limousines.

Host Kahu Kalehua Featheran finally gets to meet Duke Tiet, President of Duke’s Limousines, as well as his lovely wife, Tanya, who had been a guest on an earlier Hawaii’s Wedding Professionals episode.  Duke shares how he began in 1993 with 2 vehicles and he and his wife as the drivers.  From there, the business has now grown to a fleet of 10 vehicles, ranging from a sedan or SUV to their stretch limos and the triple axel Hummer that is often the vehicle of choice for wedding couples, since it can carry the entire wedding party.

During the interview, viewers get to see the various vehicles in the fleet as well as the inside of the limos.  Tanya adds that couples can be picked up at their home or hotel and driven to a church or outdoor venue, as well as transported to a different location for photo taking…each reservation is tailored to the couple’s itinerary for their special day.

Kahu Kalehua’s second interview opens with Doug Fitch singing Ka Uluwehi O Ke Kai, while his beautiful colleague, Noco Ku’uleinani dances hula to this popular upbeat number.  Filmed with Kaneohe Bay in the background, Kalehua and his guests appear to be floating on the water during this segment.  Doug plays traditional Hawaiian music and instrumentals at wedding ceremonies, adding folk music and originals at receptions.  Graceful Noco Ku’uleinani, learned to hula while in Tokyo and has been dancing for 12 years.  She offers to teach hula to the bridal party so they can surprise their guest with a hula at the ceremony or reception; she also does a hula teach during the program, bringing people on stage to teach them a simple dance.

Doug Fitch and Noco Ku'uleinani of Doug Fitch Music
This interview closes out with Doug playing kihoalu or slack key.  He explains that the first cowboys came to Hawaii with their guitars and because the local paniolo did not read the instruction manual, they ingeniously adapted the tuning of the guitar to their native chants, thus the birth of kihoalu.  A composer of original music, Doug shares a final tune with the viewers as Noco Ku’uleinani dances to it.

Oh, and for the first 3 viewers who emails Kahu Kalehua at with the one “blooper” he purposely left in during one of the interviews in this show, he will offer to you one of Doug Fitch’s current CD, Paradise on the Ocean.

Show times are as follows:    Fridays at 6:30pm
Repeats:                                   Saturdays at 12:30am & 1:30pm
