I would love to be able to rate the actual performance of this "Royal" minister, but unfortunately he got sick the day before my daughter's wedding. Our caterer was able to make alternate arrangements and the "substitute" minister, Paul was perfect!

Laki has now refused to refund my $150 deposit stating that the fee was "to reserve the date and prepare the contract" which he did...what??? I have never heard of anything so unprofessional and plain old rip off...from a "minister"? What the heck! Jerk!!

Laki was amazing! We couldn't have picked a more perfect officiant for our special day. Everything about our ceremony was special and memorable. He is sweet, funny, and Filled with so much aloha! He arrived early and patiently waited as I ran late. All of our guests said he was the best officiant they have ever seen at a wedding and as wedding professionals ourselves we couldn't agree more! We would highly recommend him! You feel the spirits of the island blessing you and it will be a day that will live in your soul forever.

Laki was perfect for Justin and me. We were looking for someone that was flexible with not performing a religious ceremony, but still maintain the Hawaiian traditional touch. He was personable, humble, and kept the guest entertained during the entire ceremony. Laki even took the time to speak to the two of us while we were looking for our officiant. When we talked on the phone, he speaks of love, marriage, and happiness. We felt his passion and commitment. Laki is a special person and can put humor, love, magic, and passion into any wedding ceremony he performs.

We couldn't have picked a more perfect pastor ourselves. He was chosen for us by the hotel so I was a little apprehensive. After meeting with him I was at complete ease. He was so funny and passionate. He made our day so memorable and amazing. Our guests still talk about how much they loved him! If you have a chance to work with him I wouldn't miss out! Mahalo for everything Pastor Laki Kaahumanu.

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! :-)
