My husband Greg and I reside in Sydney Australia. We wanted to get married on the beach in Hawaii after getting engaged at Diamond Head 12 months earlier. Upon searching Hawaii weddings we were overwhelmed with how many Hawaii wedding sites on the Internet. We located Ron... Read More Taylor's site and read the reviews and were immediately impressed with the reviews, wedding service prices and the other services offered. We made the decision to contact Ron with the details of what we were looking for. We received a very prompt reply from Ron providing us with some suggestions regarding location and the procedure of obtaining a marriage license from the Dept. of Health. After a number of emails to Ron it made our decision easy to have Ron as our Minister for the ceremony. Our special day was made even more special when we met Ron and his beautiful wife Vanessa who was to be our photographer. Ron made sure that all our family and friends who made the trip from Australia were involved. The ceremony was moving and everything that we wanted. The location of Waimanalo Beach was perfect. Vanessa was unbelievable, her bubbly personality was infectious which made getting the wedding photos fun and enjoyable. We would highly recommend Ron Taylor and his beautiful wife Vanessa to officiate the wedding. The photos were truly amazing and the songs played my BJ the ukele player were perfect.

We are all from New Zealand, I was born of Mangaian/Manahiki Cook Island descent and my soon to be Warrior husband Eddie is born of Mutalau/Alofi Nuiean descent we have been truly blessed to have finally met with Ron & Vanessa Taylor who set up our beautiful wedding day at... Read More "Magic Island" Ala Moana in one week via email contact. After 35 years we decided to get married for the first time in front of our 5 adult children Franco, Alex, Kirsten - Angel, Sage, Eddie Bo'deane, Benjimen and as GOD is our witness by Pastor Ron Taylor and be photographed by his very talented, skillful and professional wife Vanessa supported by their daughter. I must admit it was one the most amazing, loving felt, very emotional and wonderful experience we could of gone through together as a family. Pastor Ron Taylor and his family made this day come true and very surreal for us, in too short notice Ron and Vanessa Taylor made it very respectful, valued our culture and talked us through his Hawaiian and Christian marriage process and to our disbelief what topped it off was listening to the 2 songs that our Ukelele master played for us BUT who would ever have thought he would know my 2 favourite songs that we as a family play back at home "Sandy Beach" and 'Over the Rainbow" there was no way the things that happened on this day is exactly how we I pictured it, how I wanted it and that it included both our 6 children in it. PERFECT was the event and as GOD was our witness our day just got even better a Limosine pick up and ride back to our hotel from the taxi driver who dropped us off at the Beach Park and booking a family dinner for 7 at WOK KIKI was the highlighted meal of our entire 13 day stay. On behalf on our Paealiki Ohana we want to let the whole world know that we believe and highly recommend Pastor Ron and Vanessa Taylor respectful wedding services to all couples young and old, culturally sensitive and experience the moment. We can not thank you all enough for how happy we are leaving and maybe one day return to the North Shore and the West in future. Mahalo nui loa nga mihinui kia koutou katoa

We are from Montreal, Canada. We got married last week on March 1st. Was a rainy day but we had a blast. We were not sure what to expect seeing that we had never met and we got in touch via email. We found his site easy to operate with links for the flowers and to pay. The... Read More minister was a big help in planning our special day and gave us all the information, adresses and pictures of where to meet, which we needed to make this day worry free. As for the ceremony .... it was so wonderful. Pastor Ron and family made us feel special, made us feel like family. I did not once feel as though we were being rushed due to the unfortunate weather, which in turn made the day even more special. Pastor Ron was even willing to postpone the wedding to perform it on a sunnier day. We declined of course well just because we are CanadiansđŸ˜‰. Both the groom and I have been together for 25 years and have 3 children together and wanted them to be part of our wedding which was not a problem for him either. He had suggested (and brought ) a conch shell for my son to open the ceremony. My eldest he recommended she read a passage from the bible, and our other daughter sang. We will never forget this day nor will our children and forever be blessed with the oopertunity we had to meet Pastor Ron and family. From our Ohana we give him the highest rating possible. Search no more you have found the right people to help you with your big day. Mahalo Pastor Ron, Vanessa and Bethia for the amazing pictures and lei's God bless

Pastor Ron was able to take us last minute and provide the whole package for our wedding. He communicated thoroughly and prompt! Not only are his prices VERY REASONABLE, but his services are very accommodating when it comes to "one stop, shopping." We purchased the flower aisle,... Read More flower heart, bouquet, minister and photography services. I want to say that we are so honored that pastor Ronald Taylor, his wife and daughter were the ones to experience our day with us! They are very passionate and professional with their work. Even though my wife and I were alone since we decided to elope, we felt as if we were with family. Everything was set and ready once we arrived to the location. The pastor's daughter had not only set up the aisle, and created the flower filled heart, but she also had a playlist of music for us to play during the ceremony and the photoshoot. The pastor's wife knew all the poses and angles to do for us to take pictures, she even fell on the floor to get the right angles when taking the photos. Not only was she the photographer, but the pastor was the photographer as well while his wife helped mine adjust her vail, dress and hair. As for Pastor Ron, we felt one with God as he blessed us, and married us. Their teamwork, candor and aloha spirit is key to their successful family business that they have developed. We enjoyed our time with them and will DEFINITELY BE WILLING TO RECOMMEND THEIR SERVICES TO EVERYONE and will be using their services again when we renew our vows! Much mahalos and God bless to the Taylor family! **From the Chea's**
