I officiated my first wedding ceremony just after college and so enjoyed the experience that I wanted to do more. Alas, there wasn’t a huge market for ministers in their twenties back then, so I had to bide my time until I got older and looked slightly more respectable. 🙂
Since then, I have had the honor of presiding over all sorts of weddings, from the modern to the whimsical. I’ll help you create an unforgettable ceremony here on the Valley Isle and beyond. Yeah, I’m kind of a wedding nerd.
It’s a great joy to work with couples on crafting just the right ceremony that reflects their values, personality and particular brand of joie de vivre!
I hold a license as a marriage/civil union performer for the State of Hawaii (lic: 2016-11641). I also hold ordinations from the Church of the Subgenius, The Church of Spiritual Humanism and most recently the Church of the Latter Day Dude (yes, that is a Big Lebowski reference!). While some of these ordinations seem tongue-in-cheek, I assure you they are all legit in the eyes of the law.
I’m an avid paddler of Hawaiian outrigger canoes and can be found out on the water with my wa’a ohana (canoe family) 3-4 mornings a week. I’m also an itinerant DJ for Mana’o Radio (91.7fm) and volunteer for several local non-profits including Hale Kau Kau.
I’m happy to recommend wedding planners, flowers, photographers, hula performers, caterers, venues, musicians and more. I write about some of them on my blog but you can also drop me a line and I’ll send you my preferred vendors list.
