With nearly 40 years experience, Captain Howie specializes in personalized weddings that are never boring, always meaningful... but not necessarily for everyone.

Being a bit of a maverick, with a less traditional approach, he does not use the old standard phrases like: “I promise to obey” and “until death do you part”. To learn more, in a really fun way, please take a few minutes to scroll down and watch the video: “Meet Capt. Howie”. You will definitely find it entertaining!

Otherwise, just proceed to Capt. Howie’s website www.hawaiiweddings.com or pick up the phone and call us at: 808-261-2244. Alternatively, send us an e-mail at howie@hawaiiweddings.com. Either way, we'd love to hear from you! Read less

Knew we were going with Hawaii Weddings after the initial chat with Jodi. She seemed to understand exactly what we were looking for. Throughout the planning process she was responsive, provided detailed answers, and also suggestions and any details she thought would be helpful. We got lucky with the weather, but our big day could not have gone smoother; everything was beautiful and she helped make sure all went well!

Our photographer was amazing as well; we could not be happier with our photos. If you are thinking about the Waimanalo Beach location, we can vouch that this beach is as magical as the photos look! Any of the beaches on Oahu are beautiful and would highly recommend these over Maui locations if you're comparing the two most popular islands for weddings. Regardless, if you're considering getting married in Hawaii, definitely give Hawaii Weddings a call; you won't regret it!

We personally would like to thank everyone for such an amazing wedding of our dreams. Everyone was professional, personable and has exceeded our expectations. As I started my planning task trying to find the right planner I was a little nervous because I was on the mainland and I did not know anyone in Hawaii. However, I came across Hawaiiweddings.com and after speaking with Jodi, I was confident and sure this was the right company to use. Jodi was excellent in understanding our vision as she played close attention to our details from the spiritual preacher of our choice, flowers, ceremony location and photos and video shoot.
Wedding Ceremony- Waimanalo Beach/Angles Bay (Amazing Views and very seclude compared to the beaches in Oahu)
Flowers- (OMG Amazing- I sent Jodi a picture of the flowers that I wanted and they were an exact match.)
Wedding Pastor- Dennis Sallas – (Thank you for performing the spiritual blessings of our ceremony. I thank God for the profound word that you have spoken over our lives.)
Piloni & Marty-(Thank you for the amazing photos and video, thanks for capturing every moment of our wedding.) Locations: Angles Bay and China Wall
Limo Driver Steve- (Thank you for proving me with safe travels and well as giving me educational tour of the island.)
“The Hawaii Wedding Team has surpassed our exceptions; I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is considering getting married in Hawaii.”

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Hawaii Weddings! We were married on July 9, 2016 at Angel's Bay, and it was absolutely perfect! It was everything that I dreamed of and more! The hair and make-up team were amazing, the photographer was truly inspirational and made both of us look and feel beautiful, Jodi made sure everything ran smoothly, and Captain Howie conducted the most touching ceremony. He truly touched our hearts. Hawaii Weddings made planning the wedding so easy and hassle free. This team will give you a dream beach wedding and you won't blow your budget!

My wife and I recently renewed our vows on Oahu and we could not be happier with the service, quality and professionalism of this company. Jodi was extremely easy to work with, responsive and made the entire event hassle-free. Their site selection was perfect, and we had a perfect sunset for a background. Their photographer was amazing and his shots turned out great. But the best part had to be Capt. Howie's service/blessing; it was well thought out, heartfelt and really moving. This company came highly recommended to us, and I am very grateful we placed our trust in their hands for this special occasion.

My wife and I were very nervous about trying to plan a wedding via email all the way from California but Jodi was extremely helpful and patient and everything turned out wonderfully. Captain Howie and his entire staff made our day so special!

We just finished looking at the pictures and video and they are both absolutely incredible. Pilots is an absolutely amazing photographer, his attention to detail and ability to place us within the scenery impressed us during the photo shoot and after seeing the pictures we are just flat out stunned. The videographer (I believe his name was Marty) did an exceptional job recording during the photoshoot, they both worked together flawlessly and made everything turn out amazing.

We did the catamaran wedding. The catamaran is small, so it's not fit for more than the bridal couple and the captain. Everything up to the wedding day was very easy and flexible. We called once to get some info. The second time we called we put down a $300 deposit fully refundable up to 30 days prior to our date. ~30 days before the wedding we asked to add a photographer and a videographer. The day before the wedding filled in the form on the county clerk's website and showed up in person to the county clerk's office. Since we did the form online there was no waiting. We spent ~15mins at the county clerk's office. Same say, we called Captain Howie to see how to meet up the next day for the wedding. On our wedding day we met Captain Howie at Kokokahi YMCA in Kaneohe at 11am. I had my hair done but wore shorts and a tshirt for the catamaran journey. When we got to secret island around 1:30pm we quickly changed in our wedding outfits. The ceremony lasted about 45 minutes and it was very beautiful. There were other people on the beach, but that didn't bother us. We then did 20 photos that took another hour and a half. All in all we were done by 5:30pm so we were ready for the reception dinner.

Hawaii Weddings blew our expectations out of the water! We only had a few weeks to plan our last minute wedding, and just as we started to accept the fact that we were going to have to settle for something less than amazing, we found Captain Howie!

Everything seemed far too good to be true, but after my initial call to check for availability I was sold. I spoke directly with Captain Howie who was super laid back, flexible with his schedule, and overall awesome to talk to. He set us up with Jodi for more detailed planning and she turned out to be one of the nicest people we have ever met. They were both extremely helpful and available throughout the entire process, and made our rushed wedding planning so easy and enjoyable.

We also want to thank our videographer Marty and photographer Piloni who were both awesome! They captured everything beautifully and were very fun and easy to work with.

Again, we didn’t think there was a chance that everything could be as perfect and beautiful as the website makes it seem but it ended up being better! Just in case I haven’t made it clear already, my wife and I highly recommend Hawaii Weddings! Adam and Lacey

My husband and I were very pleased of the service of Capt Howie and his crew. Jodi and Sara were tremendous in guiding us along the way until our wedding day. They were both very prompt in answering our questions. Our wedding day was amazing. Wade did a fantastic job with my hair and make-up. Piloni and Marty were great during our photo shoot and the pictures and video turned our beautiful. They're truly professionals. We were so excited to look at every single pictures once we received them. Our families and friends loved them. I recommend Hawaii Weddings to anyone who is planning to have a beautiful wedding in the island of Hawaii. The beach was gorgeous, plenty of room of our 48 family and friends who flew all the way from the mainland to Hawaii just for our wedding. Again, Hawaii weddings..Thank you for making our wedding a memorable one. Gertrude & Eddie
