Joseph did a wonderful job with our Maui wedding ceremony. Throughout the process he was helpful, patient, thoughtful, and open minded. He met with us and communicated with us over telephone and email numerous times leading up to our wedding in order to determine exactly what we wanted. We were looking for a Jewish ceremony, but with some modifications to not be overly religious. He produced a ceremony that was exactly what we wanted and did a wonderful job delivering it. His fee is very fair and much cheaper than all other Rabbi's I spoke to in Maui. Thank you so much Joseph!

You don't have to have any fears about planning your wedding with Joseph. We planned our wedding from Australia and did not meet Joseph until the day before the actual ceremony but because of his patient, thoughtful and professional manner, we weren’t worried a bit.

In particular, Joseph handled the delicacies of an interfaith wedding very well. With Joseph, you never have to worry that your officiant will only represent one religion or faith. He is capable of very genuine commentary that highlights aspects of each faith and weaves it all together into a very natural and organic-feeling ceremony. You can tell that a lot of thought goes into each individual ceremony he does.

On the whole, Joseph is truly a first class guy. He took the time to talk with us and get to know us over email and telephone and that really showed in the ceremony he put together. He was, of course, punctual and extremely professional throughout the entire process, and even provided a few recommendations for sightseeing on our honeymoon. What more can you ask for?

I would not hesitate to recommend Joseph to someone else for their wedding - or simply to renew their vows….. ;)

I found Joseph through online reviews because we were planning our wedding from the mainland. We are extremely thankful to those who provided feedback about him and his services! True to previous comments, Joseph made our wedding ceremony so personal and special. I am an extremely particular person, and he is exactly what we were looking for- someone warm, professional, and who made us feel so at ease during the process. Our guests thought Joseph was hilarious, but also so sincere with his words. The script he wrote for us was very personal and sounded like "us." He is also very flexible and just a kind hearted man in general. We would highly recommend him!

We couldn't have been happier with Joseph marrying us. He totally captured the vibe we were going for and adapted well to our tastes. A lot of friends and family said that it was one of the best ceremonies they've ever seen. Big thanks to Joseph!

My husband David and I couldn't have been happier with the entire process of our wedding, and our choice for an officiant is one that truly made it genuine, full of love and down to earth. Joe asked the three of us have a phone conversation on the phone months in advance of the wedding. We spoke at length about the kind of couple we are and where we hope to go. I was very impressed with how many great questions he posed, and from then on I knew our ceremony would be very personal and uniquely ours. We had lunch with Joe before the wedding and it felt like we had all been friends for years--almost like family. He sent us a "script" of the ceremony in advance of the wedding and allowed us to make any changes or amendments. We had little or very few changes, as he couldn't have said any of it better--even threw in some of his great sense of humor to lighten everything up. Overall, we feel that Joe was a perfect fit for us. Because of him, the memories of our wedding are so much brighter and more emotionally connected. I would highly recommend him!

My Husband and I couldn't have been happier with Joseph! He was so fantastic to work with, listened to all of our ideas, thoughts and feelings about how we wanted our ceremony to be. We knew right off the bat that we didn't want a religious ceremony, and we wanted to incorporate a lot of our story into our vows. We were blown away with how beautifully Joseph was able to do just that. I highly recommend choosing Joseph for your Maui wedding ceremony!

My fiancé and I knew in planning our wedding that we wanted a ceremony that would speak to us! After our years together we agreed that a simple ceremony that reflected on our commitment to each other would have the most significance in celebrating our new life choice. Reviewing the websites of wedding officiants on Maui, we discovered quite a list; many who provided templates for the order of the ceremony and templates for the vows. Looking at Joseph Narrowe’s site we could immediately tell that he offered something different.


On first contact (this was by phone from the mainland) he was quite gracious, listening to our thoughts, getting a feel for who and what we were about. His recommendations for how to get our thoughts on paper were just fantastic! He made things fun and we knew as we ended that first call that we had found our officiant.

Working by email and an occasional phone call we got things finalized beyond what we had hoped to achieve from home. Joseph not only created a wonderful draft of the vows, but he offered suggestions for possible ceremony locations and recommended other ways to make the ceremony special.

After we arrived on Maui, he met with us over coffee and everything about the meeting just reinforced that we had made the right decision. His easy manner and genuine interest in us as a couple, as well as his inclusiveness with my stepson, really showed. In the course of these final preparations he continued to offer ideas for personalizing the service, such as including my stepson in the lei exchange, that reinforced his understanding of what we wanted to achieve in this celebration.

Needless to say, the ceremony went off beautifully. It was personal, warm and even lighthearted at just the right moments! Joseph really made our entire Maui visit an experience to remember. We came away feeling that we had not just made a great contact for this once in a lifetime event, but that we had come away with a new friend. Thank you, Joe!

We got incredibly lucky when we found Joseph to officiate our wedding. After speaking with him on the phone and trading a few emails, he wrote a beautiful ceremony that was so specific to us. We met up with him for a cup of coffee after arriving on the island, and instantly knew that he would do a great job with our wedding. A couple days later (a day later than originally planned thanks to a crazy rainstorm -- we were so glad that we were able to postpone a day and wait for better weather), we met Joseph at the grassy knoll by the ocean that he’d found for us, and he married us. The ceremony went off without a hitch, and we were both very moved by the lovely poems that Joseph had incorporated into it.

We are a couple from Hungary and we contacted Joseph to officiate at our wedding. He made us feel comfortable and treated us like old friends. He wrote a special ceremony for us and it was very meaningful to us both. He helped us find a really good location (Charly Young Beach in Maui) and helped us arrange our license. I feel that he helped make our day special. I HIGHLY recommend him and his services. We are glad we met him and that he was the one who married us. Thank You Joseph!!

There is so much to write about Joseph, i will try to make it short.
We were planning our really intimate Wedding from Germany. The minute i spoke to Joseph on the phone i knew he was the perfect rabbi, friend and officiant for us. We met Joseph in Maui and the image of him was just as i thought it would be. It felt like we knew each other for a long time already. Not only that Joseph helped us with organizing a great photographer to keep those memories of that special day for us, he was unforgettable. As my Husband isn't jewish but i am, Jospeh perfectly managed a balance of the jewish tradition for me and he spoke wise words and quotes about Love, and marriage on a daily basis for us. It was Joseph who made this ceremony as personal as it could be. Joseph, our dear friend, Again Thank you so much for this special moment. We will keep you in our hearts and hope to see you again. MEAN IT!
