Pastor Laki was recommended by our wedding coordinator and I am so glad that we chose him.
He was on time, he came and introduced himself to both my husband and I prior to our wedding ceremony and immediately had a fun/happy presence about him.
When he spoke to me prior to the ceremony I was still a ball of nervous energy and his attitude and warmth really calmed me down and dissipated some of my nervousness.
Our guests thought he was great during the ceremony - he was obviously very experienced and knew the moments to be serious but also the moments to create laughter.
When I think back to my ceremony I just remember how much we laughed together as husband and wife.

We booked pastor Laki through our wedding coordinator. We read a few online reviews prior to requesting Pastor Laki.
Even though he did not attend our rehearsal, he clearly has a lot of experience with a variety of different cultural weddings. Our wedding was a blend of Christian, Filipino and Hawaiian traditions- Reverend Laki made the wedding joyful, hopeful, playful, fun and really emphasized the importance of love without being "too preachy".
After our ceremony, everyone seemed so happy and uplifted by Reverend Laki's ceremony- we all loved him.

Laki was the perfect choice for us. Not only was our ceremony powerful and meaningful, but we also had lots of laughter and kissing! Our guests loved the ceremony as well... couldn't stop talking about it.

He was also flexible in removing religious aspects of the ceremony to suit us.

We have watched the ceremony again on our video and it is even more powerful - we couldn't be happier.

Our hotel made all the arrangements for the wedding, and we couldn't have been happier! We met Pastor Laki on our wedding day and immediately felt at ease around him. He has a great attitude and sense of humor. Our wedding was beautiful. He blew his conch shell a few times throughout the ceremony, chanted Hawaiian prayers, and even cried as my husband said the vows he had written to me. I loved that he made us kiss multiple times throughout the ceremony instead of just once at the end, "Hawaiian style." He has a wonderful combination of spirituality, humor and heart. We wouldn't have wanted our wedding any other way.

Laki was SOOO amazing and wonderful! Made us laugh the whole ceremony and was so incredibly nice. I'm so happy we randomly got assigned him! It was a perfect day with a "lucky" minister! :-)

I loved his Hawaiin attire! He had a great sense of humour and put us at ease. I can't believe we kissed 9 times during a 20 minute ceremony!. Blowing the conch shell and him showing up in barefeet was something we had never seen. He was very dramatic and very passionate about the ceremony he was performing. I think I saw him in an episode of Season One Modern Family???

Pastor Laki is incredibly personable and fun! We had about 60 guests attend our destination wedding in Maui and he really added a lot to make the atmosphere and put everyone at ease. He has the bride and groom looking out towards the guest as he stood to the side, this was great for many reasons... photos, your guests have clear view of your face and not the back of your heads, and getting to see your friends and family as well as your future spouse very easily. I saw the tears being shed, some from laughing and others from the touching moments Pastor Laki brought out of us.

Pastor Laki was perfect for Aaron and my wedding. He was somehow funny and heart-warming at the same time. He kept our ceremony joyful - exactly as we hoped.

Laki seriously made our ceremony - he was reverent, sweet, hilarious, laid back, jokester...there's no way to do justice to how awesome he is! Having a wedding with Laki is like being on an awesome ride - one minute he's being serious and then the next he has you laughing, he has you kiss at various times throughout the ceremony which keeps it really comfortable for you and your now husband, at one point he even had everyone stand up and DANCE! Our guests couldn't stop talking about how amazing he was and what a great time they had - I don't know if people usually have fun at a wedding ceremony but they definitely did at ours thanks to Laki! In addition to his amazing officiating Laki is also an amazing person, our planner told us about his shelter for battered and abused women and children and that he even uprooted his life a few years back to help Hawaiians with gambling problems in Vegas get back on their feet - Laki is awesome!
