Marriage is the unity of two hearts, minds and lives. The commitment, dedication, and sacrifices required by marriage should not be taken lightly or entered into without serious consideration. Weddings and vow renewals are a time to celebrate and proclaim your love in a serious and fun celebration. I perform non-traditional non-religious marriage ceremonies for traditional and same sex couples inspired by Love, Hawaii, or fun themes in locations like beaches, backyards, parks, gardens and homes.  I have a variety of beautiful, fun, and funny wedding ceremony scripts in many themes or can create a custom ceremony for you. I am willing to travel to unique locations for the wedding ceremony and for fun themed weddings am willing to dress in costume for the ceremony or dress in more traditional Wedding Minister attire. I am based on the island of Oahu and am licensed to perform marriages throughout the state of Hawaii.

The basic wedding and vow renewal ceremonies are customizable to add your own vows or special ceremonies like a lei exchange and/or unity ceremony so discuss with your significant other what you both would like on your special day. Once you know what type of service you would like contact me and I will work with you to finalize the details to secure the date/time for you and then I will email you a couple of ceremony options I create for you to choose from. Please also feel free to send me a message using the contact page with any questions you have or if you want to check on availability for a particular date.
