Simple Beach Wedding?

Monster Brides
Below is an actual email received recently requesting a "simple beach wedding".  As I read through the email the wedding requests get progressively more complex...
Package interested in: "Simple Beach Wedding"

Wedding Details: I want a setting with BLUE waters, not clear, not green, not murky gray..but BLUE such as Makapuu Beach. I also LOVE the scenery of rocks and flowing coast like waters at Heavens Point (I saw pics from when I was considering Wed Hawaii. My photographer will be the critical piece on my wedding day and I am prepared to pay more for that. I cannot emphasize the importance of a great photographer to capture my day with unique untraditional poses and creativity. I also want my wedding video recorded and made into a mini movie so we can have it played at our reception when we go back home in Tennessee. I am not a morning person and cannot do a wedding before 12 noon. I cannot stand heat and don't want a wedding during the hottest part of the day unless the weather is pleasant heat and I can tolerate it because I have oily skin and don't want to be shining on my pics. I want a flower petal pathway as an aisle to walk down. I want John Legend song called All of Me played on a Keyboard as my friend sings it (if he is able to attend) or if Hawaii has no keyboard player to play that song, I will need it played on a track as my friend sings it or I need a harpist or guitarist or someone to play that song. I also want it played on a dvd created by a videographer who will take snippets of our day and put it on a dvd or usb. I would love a simple archway decorated with a few flowers and blowing fabric as we stand under to take our vows . I want a Haku with my cream/tangerine wedding colors to match my bouquet of flowers or i may want a flowers/flowerpiece to stick in my hair if I decide on the 'bun' style. I may want hair and makeup and pedicure and manicure service . 
Message: We will need help coordinating what to do on our day since it is a wedding and honeymoon in one. I want a 4 or 5 star hotel for our honeymoon although our hotel stay leading up to the wedding day can be a simple one. We want spa treatment with massages for our honeymoon. We may want a helicopter ride . we want a FINE restaurant for wedding couples. We want to experience some sort of Hawaiian party with hula dancers and flame blowers etc. I want my honeymoon hotel to be especially tailored for a honeymoon couple and not a regular hotel room. It will either need to be a suite or have a sit/stand balcony overlooking the waters. Rose petals on the bed, possibly an in-room jacuzzi etc. We may want dinner outdoors near the ocean.and any other tips and suggestions to help create this into a honeymoon
