Kahu Bruce, we love you! He was so wonderful to work with: quick to respond, so friendly, helpful, and patient! Our wedding ceremony was a beautiful Hawaiian ceremony. My husband and I couldn't have asked for anything more. The chanting, meaning of ALOHA, lei exchanges, and more were so beautiful. Our guests continue to tell us how touching the ceremony was, and how they had never experienced something like that before. We were so happy to have had Kahu Bruce marry us, and are forever grateful! We loved getting to know you Kahu, and hope to meet you again some day!!

Love,
Allyse, Phillip, and Skylar

Kahu Bruce is such an incredible minister and person! We quickly hit it off with him at our marriage license appointment and absolutely loved getting to know him while we were on the island. Our ceremony was beautiful and he made us laugh throughout, which was so important to us! It was a very low key ceremony and we loved how personal it was and the Hawaiian culture that he brought to our ceremony.

Kahu Bruce performed a beautiful Hawaiian marriage ceremony for my wife and I on Waimanalo Beach. The ceremony was more perfect than we ever could have dreamed of and we are so grateful that he honoured our love in such a meaningful way. Kahu's direction and expertise on the day was so helpful and he made the ceremony run smoothly.
All our family and friends (and even the photographers) raved about how moving his ceremony was and we will remember it for the rest of our lives.
Planning a destination wedding on Oahu from Australia isn't easy, but Kahu Bruce was wonderful to deal with over email and phone prior to arriving and even met us to help get our marriage licence and fine tune the ceremony.
I would highly recommend Kahu Bruce to any couple looking for a meaningful ceremony.

My husband and I were married by Kahu Bruce in front of our closest friends and family. We cannot get over how beautiful Bruce made the ceremony. We wanted a non religious option but Bruce was still able to give it so much love and meaning. Bruce was able to meet us at the registry office before the wedding day and made the process a breeze. He made us feel so comfortable on our wedding day. My parents are videographers and have filmed 100's of weddings - they agree that Bruce was the best officiant they have ever seen! We cannot thank Bruce enough for making our ceremony so beautiful. He will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Kahu Bruce was so wonderful. Our ceremony was beautiful and so unique. My husband is in the wedding business in NJ/NY so the last thing we (especially he) wanted was the same wedding/ceremony that he has seen a hundred times before. We travel to hawaii almost every year because we love it there so much so it only seemed natural to get married there and also have a ceremony that honors the Hawaiian tradition. Kahn Bruce was incredibly warm and kind and explained the meaning of each part of our ceremony to us the day he helped us get our marriage certificate. After the ceremony several of my guests commented on how lovely and unique our ceremony was. We are grateful for having Kahu Bruce as our officiant.

Kahu Bruce was absolutely amazing! He is an experienced professional yet balances that with being down to earth and "real". My guests are still talking about how EXCELLENT he was! There was not a dry eye in the ceremony even though there was a lot of laughing going on too. He incorporated the Hawaiian culture (including Oli) I grew up with my Catholic/Christian traditions as well as adding in a sand unity ceremony we wanted at the last minute. He made us cry, laugh, and really feel our love for eachother and our friends and family. The meeting with him beforehand is essential - it's more than an introduction. He was our calmness in the storm of everything - when we felt like everything was going wrong and I just really didn't have the time for this meeting, he brought it back to what we were there for. During the ceremony, the talk we had during our meeting and his reminders - really let us focus and be present. His guidance to not only us (the bride and groom) but also my wedding party were gentle and firm, he explained everything he did and said. Really, truly an amazing kahu and person. It was a little difficult pinning down time for the pre-meeting and I got worried because we finally pinned down a time the day before the wedding and it was at Ala Moana. But right there in the food court, he floored us with his words - making us cry and breathe and remember how much we loved eachother. It's like he knew what we were thinking and feeling even though we never said. We are so lucky to have had him officiate our wedding and will treasure him forever. This is the first review I am writing of the vendors at my wedding, that's how much of an impact he made on us! He is worth more than what he charges for his services.

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.
