I am so happy to see that everyone had the same experience that my husband and I had with Kahu Bruce! All the wonderful things you read about him are true. Kahu Bruce took two crazy kids who are non-practicing Catholics and created a ceremony that was meaningful, spiritual, and more importantly, true to us. And I know our guests were just absolutely wowed by the Hawaiian elements that he had woven into it.

The most wonderful thing that Kahu Bruce did/said that I will forever be grateful for was give us this advice: Leave the ceremony in his hands. Don't worry about memorizing anything you have to say or do. Just relax, enjoy the day and the moment, and follow his lead.

My husband and I did exactly that and it set the tone for a beautiful and memorable wedding day. Mahalo and LOTS of aloha to you, Kahu Bruce!

My husband and I come from two very different religious backgrounds and neither one of us is particularly religious. We wanted our ceremony to be short but meaningful and unique. Kahu Bruce was the perfect choice. He included many Hawaiian elements into the ceremony which we and our guests loved. He met with us days before our wedding so we could discuss which elements we wanted to include. Our ceremony was about 15-20 minutes long. Kahu Bruce really put us at ease. Nothing felt overly rehearsed. He told us to just relax, enjoy the moment, and follow his lead which is exactly what we did. No stress!!

We had a destination wedding at Turtle Bay Resort. Kahu Bruce met with us at the department of health to pick up our marriage license. After we talked for about an hour and he went over the wedding ceremony. He did such a great job officiating our ceremony! It was very beautiful. I highly recommend Kahu Bruce!

Kahu Bruce is spectacular. Neither one of us have wanted a "christian" ceremony, however we did want a spiritual Hawaiian ceremony and Kahu Bruce blew us away! From his amazing chanting as the groom and groomsmen walked in to the beautiful vows he led us through. We honored my grooms mother who had passed with a beautiful lei ceremony. Our family and friends can not stop raving about how emotional, and poignant our ceremony was and that is because Kahu Bruce was a perfect fit for us. His wisdom and words to us both days before the ceremony let us further know that he wants to be a part of our lives not just our wedding day.

Kahu Bruce is such an amazing and caring man! He contacted us early on to get us started with our marriage license online! It made it easier for us when we arrived on the island 5 days before the wedding to not feel rushed to get things done. He met with us at the license office and walked us through everything! Afterwards he sat down with us to really give us a feel for the ceremony. We literally almost had our "rehearsal" sitting there...no nervousness...we felt so comforatble with him! He really wanted to capture our love for each other and for our family in our ceremony. He explained the beautiful chants to us..and really customized everything to us as a couple! The day of the wedding he made us feel at ease....we listened to his quiet & sweet instructions and before you knew it we were married! He did such a great job at including our children in the ceremony, our family who were not in attendence (we had a destination wedding)... Kahu Bruce will make your wedding day one to remember! He will always be a part of our OHANA! Can't thank him enough!

Kahu Bruce performed our wedding ceremony and it was very beautiful, unique and touching. Many of our guests complimented him on the ceremony and commented to us on how much they enjoyed it and how beautiful it was. The ceremony itself lasted around 15-20 minutes which was the perfect amount of time in my opinion.  A few days before the wedding, Kahu Bruce met us at the dept of health to obtain our marriage license and then took the time to go over the elements of the ceremony with us. He is extremely kind and caring.  I knew I would be nervous on the day of the wedding and Kahu Bruce assured us that nothing would go wrong.  He arrive d early on the day of the wedding to make sure everything was in place.  He walked us through each and every step during the ceremony, making it easy and allowing us to be in the moment and enjoy it.

Same sex marriage. We had over 50 guests attending from the mainland plus our family members living on Oahu. Kahu Bruce was, as our guests have continuted to tell us, outstanding. He brought the whole party together in a very spiritual bonding ceremony. Our dreams were dwarfed by what actually took place. Bruce will take time with you before, during and after to provide you with the kind of support you need. He is very intuitive and we are glad we trusted him for our ceremony of a life time.

We absolutely adored Kahu Bruce. We arrived in Hawaii the week prior to our wedding. Kahu Bruce met us to assist us with our marriage certificate, and provided the day of ceremony time line. He delivered a beautiful message mixed with the Hawaiian chants and a light touch of traditional religious blessings. We enjoyed and loved every part of our ceremony, Mahalo Kahu Bruce....we will forever remember our ALOHA message!

We were not sure how mixing a traditional Hawiian wedding with our catholic back ground would work. Kahu Bruce took the time to meet with us prior to the event. He explained everything in detail and also took the time to give us some spiritual advice for our marriage. Mahalo Tim and Jean

Kahu Bruce was amazing. I LOVED every single part of his ceremony. He added in little Hawaiian touches here and there (chanting while walking in with the boys, speaking in Hawaiian and translating after, speaking of the meaning of aloha, chanting towards the ocean to bring the gods in, etc) and DH and I could both feel that he truly truly truly believed in everything he said. He even met with us to get our marriage license. All of our guests could not stop talking about what a beautiful and wonderful ceremony it was, and I credit it all to Kahu Bruce. He keeps the ceremony short too (about 20 minutes), so no one gets bored or too hot!
