We are a Canadian couple and when we decided to ditch the idea of getting married locally, we decided that Hawaii was the way to go! I am one to shop around (and drive myself a little crazy!) looking for the best deal, best offers, and best everything, but when I found Ron's... Read More website, I knew I wanted him to officiate our wedding. And it turned out exactly how we wanted it to be: simple, meaningful, sweet, and stress free. Aside from getting married to each other, getting married in Hawaii by Ron was the best decision we could have made for the following reasons: 1) We looked at several other "hawaii wedding packages" online and found that many never described the officiant - what kind of person they are, their character and what they stand for. Ron is exactly how he portrays himself on his website and in correspondences: genuine, polite, caring, and kind. With our micro wedding of two (bride and groom only) we truly enjoyed the presence that Ron and his family brought - they set a tone of love and peacefulness. It was like having our own mini family cheering us on :) 2) His prices are extremely fair and affordable. We did pretty much everything with Ron, beach permit, bouquet, ministry and photography. Packages that we found online were easily going for 4 times the price that Ron charges. It was simple to coordinate via email and we just had to show up in our wedding attire, with wedding rings and wedding license in hand. 3) The photos that Ron, Vanessa and Bethia took were simply beautiful! Honestly, they are stunning. It was an overcast day with even a drizzle during our vows, but in the pictures the colors of the ocean and sky look like a pastel work of art, and we looked like a couple of love birds in our own paradise. They know what they are doing and I'm so happy I went with them. They say not to skimp on photography on your wedding day, and truly they pictures are gorgeous at such a fair price too. 4) The bouquet that Vanessa made me was perfect! It was this densely packed bouquet of beautiful pink roses with white orchids. I contemplated seeking a specialized florist who would make me an elaborate bouquet with such and such colors and flowers, but honestly, sometimes having too many choices is not always the best and in this case, the bouquet was a simple stunner :) It's been a month since our wedding and we've had time to process what our day meant to us, and we wouldn't change a thing :) Thank you Ron and family for being a part of our special day, we wish you all the best! Stephanie and Carl

Ron and Bethia made our day so very special! We had a small window of time and they made arrangements to accommodate our needs and work around our schedule. The locations they proposed were all beautiful and the one we decided on suited us perfectly. It was a pleasure working... Read More with Ron - he was very attentive and his replies were prompt. As we are from Canada and not familiar with all the options Ron made many great suggestions for us, and we loved the fact that he was able to provide not only the officiating services but also photography and flowers (bouquet and lei's) all at a great price! Ron also ended up giving us a few extra shots as part of the photography package since him and Bethia loved the photos and couldn't decide between all of them. During the ceremony Ron was professional and allowed us to make the experience unique to us. Overall we are very thankful to have met him and grateful that he was able to be a part of our special moment. We highly recommend Ron and his services for anyone that is considering a wedding in Hawaii.

When we planned to go to Oahu our usual family photographer was on a maternity, so o had to look for another affordable photographer. I've been following Ron and Vanessa's Facebook and Instagram,they always upload their current wedding/photography session on the go,I always... Read More enjoy looking at them as they post the photos. So I decided to ask if they were willing to take our family photos,though it isn't a wedding photo, without hesitation Vanessa responded to my message that she'd be glad to do so. Along with that I also follow their daughter Bethia's Instagram Lei business, I've always wanted to have a haku lei in my family photo, now that I just had a newborn baby girl, I had the reason to have a matching haku lei with my baby girl. Bethia did a great job on the leis as I requested, it didn't look too big or too small on my 2 month old infant, as well as mine, I asked for a simple elegant look rather than a busy one. She did an amazing job! She's so talented. Thank you again Ron, Vanessa and Bethia for your above and beyond excellent service. We'll definitely get in touch with you again when we visit the island. Mahalo!

We strongly recommend Hawaii Wedding Minister. They will give you a special wedding. Ron is the owner, minister and photographer, along with his wife (Vanessa) and daughter (Bethia) who help with photography. Ron and his family traveled to our wedding location on Oahu and waited... Read More patiently for the rain to stop before starting the ceremony. Ron performed our ceremony with English and Japanese for our guests from USA and Japan. Our guests were very impressed. Ron built our custom wedding as we requested, along with his good ideas and suggestions from his years of experience.

Vanessa and Bethia took wonderful photos. They are also very kind with big smiles. This is a great small family business/company. We are very satisfied with our perfect wedding thanks to Hawaii Wedding Minister!!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Ron and his family! Ron officiated our ceremony on the North Shore and it surpassed any and all expectations I had. Being a nervous bride, I spoke to him over the phone a couple of days prior to our wedding to go over our ceremony and... Read More he completely put me at ease. When I met him right before our ceremony he was so humble and kind and brought this calmness and peacefulness with him. It certainly helped me relax and actually enjoy every part of our ceremony. He even added in the blowing of the conch shell and a lei ceremony at my request which was extra special. The next day, I had compliments from SO MANY of my friends and family on what an amazing ceremony Ron performed. He was so easy to communicate with, answering my emails usually within a day which I really appreciated since I was planning the wedding from Australia. He also organised a very talented and fun ukulele player for us for our cocktail hour at such a reasonable price and it was one less vendor that I had to worry about since he took care of it. If any bride hires Ron, I can assure you that you won’t need to worry about a thing as he is so capable, genuine and trustworthy. I HIGHLY recommend him, he made our day so special and memorable, an absolute blessing for us.

Pastor Ron pulled it off without a hitch. The vows seamlessly glorified our Christian faith while filling us with the Hawaiian spirit. I hope what I’m about to say doesn’t ruin the Hawaii Wedding Minister experience for the next couple, but Ron … your services are worth so much more than you charge. Mahalo and God bless!

My boyfriend (now husband) is a firefighter in Texas and I am a Marine in Japan. We have embarked on a three year journey being apart geographically. Hawaii is not only a good meeting place for us but it is my favorite place and somewhere I like to call home. After six months... Read More of being apart we had our first little trip there together. I had lived there for four years previously so I planned the whole thing to include a day along the north shore stopping at many of my favorite spots. He knew we were doing it on Monday and he knew we were stopping at La'ia point. He wanted to wear our uniforms and get pictures, which annoyed me because I wanted to be in a bathing suit and flip flops but we had never had pictures like that and it's beautiful there. So we go in our uniforms to take pictures and to my surprise the best day of my life happened. From Texas he had gotten ahold of Pastor Ron and his wife and set it up to surprise me with a wedding. I don't know if I have ever had anything in my life work out so perfectly. They were so accommodating to my husband who just knew a place and a roundabout time. What an amazing team!!! I would not have wished for anything different and I highly recommend if you want a sweet, romantic ceremony full of love then you should not hesitate to call Pastor Ron!
