7.14.2020 (Our wedding date)
Living in Hawaii comes with its perks. Our wedding with Gay Hawaii Wedding is one of them.
Where to start? We reached out to Gay Hawaii Wedding last year excited to turn our 7 year anniversary into our wedding day. There are several packages to choose from. We ultimately selected Package 4. That option gave us a musician and a videographer.
Kevin was in touch and ironing out details over the months that followed. When COVID hit, he was in touch and completely flexible with any decisions we needed to make. Our friends traveling from the mainland had to cancel out of an abundance of caution, but we decided to keep our date.
July 14, 2020. It was a Tuesday evening. Quite a windy day, but the beach was empty. Kristina was our officiant. Kevin was the photographer. Brian was our videographer. Louise was our guitarist. Enough cannot be said for the magic they created on our day. Kristina was personable, kind and so patient. Louise has a beautiful voice and added so much value to our special day. Brian and Kevin both captured all the most important moments in our wedding. The pictures and video are something we will cherish for a lifetime. The whole team made everything seamless and truly allowed us to enjoy every single moment. Brian worked his magic and managed to slow the wind down. The video is breathtaking.
Thank you Kevin! We are so thankful for you and your team!read more
Wow what an experience. Gay Hawaii Weddings did an awesome job with our vow renewal. When I was married to my husband 11 years ago I was not allowed to get married on a Hawaiian beach at sunset. So we married in California and promised to have a vow renewal if ever possible on a Hawaiian beach. Gay Hawaii Weddings made our dream come true and it was a beautiful experience. It was everything I was promised and it was so easy to make it happen. Kevin and his team are true professionals. The location was perfect, the ukulele player was awesome and Kevin, our officiant, performed the ceremony beautifully. Our pictures were perfect and sent to us so quickly. I most definitely recommend Gay Hawaii Weddings. I'm absolutely confidant that you'll love it too.read more
Kevin was great, from that first phone call, to instructions by email, directions on what to do to file online, meeting with the licensing agent and suggestion to just thr right beach. The perfect Hawaian beach wedding.. I would definately reccomend their services... super Maholo!!!!read more
My wife and I could not have asked for a better wedding experience. Everything was planned for us we just needed to show up. Kristina performed a great ceremony and Sara took awesome pictures.read more
Thank you to Kevin, Kristina, and Terry for making our day so special. They took care of everything. All the details and planning for our wedding and very detailed every step of the way. I would recommend them to anyone looking to elope away!read more
My husband and I had a fantastic time getting married in Hawaii!!! Was a super easy stress-free process from start to finish. They arranged our marriage license appointment, picked out an amazing beach location, sent us directions and even called days before to make sure we were all set. Our big day was absolutely perfect and an unforgettable experience 🥰🏖read more
The folks here are absolutely wonderful! They were super easy to work with and ultra flexible, even when we threw some last minute changes at them. Our ceremony couldn’t have been more perfect thanks to these guys! Oh, and our photographer, Sara.... absolute perfection!! She was fast, professional, and the photos were blow-your-mind beautiful!! Can’t say enough good things about everyone involved!!read more
I highly recommend this company for your intimate Hawaii wedding. The experience was so positive right from when we booked everything. Kevin was so supportive every step of the way and provided very helpful information via email with instructions for everything that were clear and easy to understand. The recommendation for Po'olenalena Beach was perfect. You can tell how experienced they were - they knew just what time to have it to get the best lighting and sunset experience. The photos were great - Kevin did the pictures and Brian took the video. They both had great ideas for shots and both the video and pictures came out beyond our expectations and were delivered in a very timely manner. With Hawaii Wedding and Vow Renewal, you get a very individualized and supportive approach and yet the benefit of the years of experience they have putting weddings like these together. We are both so happy we found them. Thank you to Kevin (owner and photographer), Brian (videographer) and Brian (officiant)!read more
Donna & I were married in March 2019. Kristina was our officiant & planner. Sara our photographer. They both are top drawer professionals.
A sunset wedding in Maui provided the most romantic setting to create the memories for us to fill a lifetime. Sara’s skill at setting the pictures recorded it all for a remarkable keepsake.
Donna spent the afternoon at the Grand Wailea resort preparing. Everything was arranged & coordinated by the planners at a first class level. Kristina is highly organized & a great communicator.
The ceremony had a Hawaiian blessing which we cherish. The flower circle is exquisite. Follow their script and all will proceed with flow & grace. Our wedding party was so appreciative of the overall organization and guidance. It made it all so seamless for us to travel & share this blessed time together with family & friends.
Arrange your sacred event with this team. They made perfect recommendations before during and after for us & our wedding party.
I am very happy with Hawaii Weddings. From the beginning they made me feel at ease and they handled everything. The beach was awesome and I will also remember the cool sunset while I was saying my vows. The photos were great and all my friends and family who could not attend the wedding commented on how nice they were. We recommend this company to everyone. Maui is AWESOME. Thank you Hawaii and Vow Renewal.read more
We had a perfect ceremony with Kristina and could not have been happier! We chose to have the Hawaiian Ceremony on the beach at Sunset. Thank you all so much for making our 10 year anniversary wedding renewal so special. We feel as though we made a friend for life with Kristina and we will refer our friends, gay and straight alike to your company!read more
From beginning to end Kristina did an excellent job with our wedding. She was quick to respond when we had questions, walked us through each step of the process and her performance of the ceremony was very warm, professional, and charismatic. Thanks to Kristina for a great experience!read more
Literally everything about our wedding was perfectly, largely thanks to this group! From start to finish, planning our wedding was romantic and EASY! They went back and forth with us several times about what we wanted, calmed us down when we were worried about letting them handle all the details and gave us the most beautiful and joyful ceremony we could ask for. The videographer and photographer captured our relationship exquisitely. The video was beyond anything we could have imagined and the photos were breathtaking. Not to mention they got them to us super fast! Our officiant was lovely and fun and knew just how to celebrate us as a couple. Our wedding was blast and absolutely zero stress. How many brides can say that? Do your wedding with this company!!!read more
Five stars really isn't enough. I've worked very closely with Gay Hawaii Wedding for several years as one of their primary vendors. While my own wedding took place all within the Episcopal church (my husband is the Bishop's Warden), I know first hand what wonderful people Frank, Kevin and Kris are and I've seen over and over again the complete satisfaction from those that have trusted them with their own wedding arrangements. They love what they do, they care deeply about their clients and they've been doing fabulous weddings for many, many years. Plus they make it a lot of fun, as a wedding should be! Don't take chances, go with the pros who have been doing this longer than anyone else on Maui. You won't be disappointed.read more
We were beyond happy with our wedding with Gay Hawaii Wedding. The beach was so perfect. It was quiet and private and stunning at sunset. Kevin and Company were great to work with and gave us some great recommendations of things to see and do while in Hawaii. The pictures are terrific and are a great memory of our special day.

They are exceptional. They made our wedding day so easy to plan and so special for us. It was everything we could have dreamed of and more. We were so happy we added the circle of flowers, the limo, and the singer of Hawaiian love songs. It was magical. The pictures were fabulous. Everything they did couldn't have been better. We'll remember it always. read more

Living local comes with its perks for sure! Big mahalos to you all for making our day so special. It was sad that the few who would have traveled had to cancel due to the pandemic, but our day was still so special.
