Simple Ceremonies Made Stylish.
Hawaii Wedding Officiant™ Kekoa
Of Native Hawaiian descent, Kekoa was born and raised on the Island of Oahu in the true spirit of Ohana or Family as the Hawaiian culture emphasizes that families are bound together and members must cooperate and remember one another, whether blood-related, adopted or intentional. He brings this spirit of ohana and offers it as a foundation to every ceremony he is a part of.
Kekoa currently resides on the South Shore of Oahu with his partner, Sakara, and his two children. When not performing wedding ceremonies or blessings, he is producing music, enjoys family activities and anything that gets him out in nature, especially in the ocean.
Hawaii Wedding Officiant™ and Pastor John
Pastor John was raised here in Hawaii and serves as the Senior Pastor of Hope Chapel Iwilei. He’s been married to his beautiful wife for 30 years (as of 2018) and has three wonderful children.
Licensed through the State of Hawaii and having performed well over 10,000 weddings since 2003, Pastor John is able to do a number of different wedding ceremonies to suit the needs and desires of the couple. Ceremonies include: non-denominational ceremonies, Christian ceremonies, Japanese weddings and Japanese vow renewal ceremonies, traditional Hawaiian ceremonies, vow renewal ceremonies, Filipino/Catholic ceremonies; and more. Pastor John is very flexible when it comes to customizing a ceremony to suit the couple’s needs and he is also currently working on a Korean ceremony!
One of Pastor John’s driving values, when it comes to performing weddings, is “No matter how many weddings I perform, I want to treat each one like it’s my first and only wedding. Practically every couple is experiencing this joy and wonder for the first and only time. I want to enter into and share that experience with them. I want each and every couple to feel special . . . because they are. The way I engage and officiate their wedding will only take a moment, but the memory of the event is something they will carry for a lifetime. So I want to treat my role in this occasion with the utmost respect and heart.”
