Booking with Marry You In Hawaii was a great and smooth experience. We were able to hop on a phone call and chat with Kelehua prior to booking her as our officiant which made us felt very comfortable in moving forward with her.
During the ceremony, we were super nervous and emotional but Kelehua really calmed us down. She really spread the aloha spirit and we couldn't be more happy with how the ceremony turned out. It was an incredible experience and all of our guests were raving about how much they love her and our ceremony!

We can’t say enough good things about Kahu Brutus. When we needed to move our wedding at the last minute, he was so understanding and wonderful. His ceremony was one that every guest will remember forever. Unique and heart felt with many traditional Hawaiian aspects incorporated.

We got married in Ko Olina in October and we wanted a light and meaningful ceremony. Maila graciously met with us while we were visiting Oahu, months ahead of the wedding. We didn't have any specific requests (religious or cultural traditions) but she asked questions to get a feel for what we wanted and didn't want. We trusted her professionalism and knew her friendly, easy-going attitude would align with our needs. As we expected, Maila is an amazing performer and she delivered a beautifully written ceremony that exceeded my expectations. Many of our guests commented on how amazing she was and I could not agree more. No one typically mentions the ceremony as one of the best parts of the wedding but she changed the experience for many.

Kelehua is the epitome of professionalism. The genuine care and concern that she provided my wife and I is unmatched! From the time that we reached out, she ensured that every detail was to our standard! She assisted us with how we wanted our ceremony conducted (Traditional or more contemporary), obtaining our marriage license and certificate & keeping us calm during the day of our wedding. She provided the ceremony with such a positive, loving vibe. She is a master of her craft and truly encompasses the ALOHA spirit. We were blessed to have her officiate our ceremony! I would refer her to all of my friends and family. I had no issues or concerns prior to working with her because she established rapport with my wife and I as soon as we reached out. She also maintained contact with us via regular follow-up emails and phone correspondence. She is who you want officiating your wedding!

I cannot begin to convey exactly how happy we were with the ceremony by Marry You in Hawaii. My husband Tom and I traveled from Australia for a destination wedding at the Halekulani in Waikiki in November 2018 and were married by Kahu Brutus.
Every single moment, every thoughtful touch was beyond our expectations. I really mean that. We chatted with Brutus by skype before the wedding and he helped craft a ceremony that reflected our personalities, our beliefs, and our love while honoring and respecting the culture of the Hawaiian people and the place we were married. All our guests were spellbound, especially by Brutus’ singing and many have said it was one of the most beautiful wedding ceremonies they have ever seen.
It was the one point in the day that did not completely fly by - we both felt that we were able to truly take in every moment and we are so thankful for that.
We would absolutely recommend Marry You in Hawaii to everyone.

Thank you, Maila so much for officiating our wedding. Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful. We couldn’t have imagined anything better. We received many compliments from our families and friends regarding how wonderful you and the ceremony were. We highly agree! It was such a pleasure meeting you and working with you.
