I WANT TO MARRY YOU WEDDINGS
Jade and Rev. Watters were so great to work with. Planning a destination wedding is difficult when you have to base your decision on reviews and emails but we are so happy we made the right choice. Rev. Watters even spoke with each of us privately before the ceremony and his words touched us both. He is very down to earth and you can tell he loves what he does for a living. He truly made our day special! Thank you for all of your inspiring words of love.
Planning a destination wedding and not meeting any of the vendors was a challenge but finding Jade and Reverend Watters through I Want To Marry You was such an ease and a blessing! First, connecting with them through emails and over the phone was very easy and prompt. They very comforting and assuring especially on making sure that certain parts in the ceremony are included or taken out. I was even able to add a last-minute ukele player through them without any hassle. More importantly, it was such a nice surprise to have Reverend Watters speak with me and my husband privately prior to the ceremony who provided us great words of advice and wisdom. You don't have to belong to any religion so there is no awkwardness in his message. I truly enjoyed their service and my only wish is that I wish they stayed longer to enjoy the reception. Thank you !
Working online was very easy to schedule and pay for the service. Arrival on the day was timely. Discussion and quasi-counseling to ascertain the best service was outstanding. Listened to our wishes and engaged in meaningful discussion. Made it a truly Hawaiian experience. Very relaxed and friendly. Wouldn't have done it any other way! It was wonderful and we will cherish the memory always.
I was absolutely blown away by the outstanding service my Bride and I received from Rev. Watters and Jade. From the very reasonable cost, to the availability of information to the ease at which they coordinated the event. Our wedding was on Magic Island which was appropriate since Rev. Watters helped make it a 'magical' day! I'm sitting here trying to think of words to express my satisfaction and there aren't any to fully do it. The best I can come up with is: OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!!
Reverand Watters and Jade were awesome! With a short notice of two days, they were able to make our dream come true of a small wedding on a beach at sunset. On a weekday and pau hana traffic going out to the west side of the island, we were able to accomplish it all. They were pleasant to work with and they incorporated all of the ideas I had for the ceremony. Reverend Watters little counseling session with us, not only eased our butterflies but gave us foods for thought of friendship, love, and marriage. The special touch to the ceremony was when I heard Jade's beautiful voice singing the Hawaiian wedding song; it brought tears to my eyes. It was a beautiful ceremony with family and friends and I am glad that Reverend Watters and Jade were able to make it happen for us.
I highly recommend Reverend Watters and Jade, they are true professionals to their trade and compliment one another to make a genuinely intimate ceremony for your wedding.
Mahalo ke akua for wonderful people like you two!
I went to visit Reverend Greg while deciding on officiants and it was an easy decision. He and his wife were very easy going and open to answering any questions in person and via email. In total, very little communication was needed and the rehearsal & ceremony went very smoothly! We chose a non-denominational ceremony with a sprinkling of Hawaiian tradition (conch shell, leis). Reverend Greg did a wonderful job and we felt very at ease with his professionalism, leadership, and sense of humor. We highly recommend his services for such a special day!
We had a destination wedding and didn't know what to expect. We planned our wedding through emails, phone calls and websites so being the bride I was very stressed. Greg was amazing. Everything went great and just how we expected. We highly recommend his services.
Rev. Greg was the perfect choice for us! He was perfectly fine with the little changes we made to the ceremony wording and was even nice enough to meet with us and our family upon our arrival to Hawaii. He delivered the perfect ceremony and made it feel really special! We would definitely recommend working with him.
Rev. Greg was wonderful and exactly what we were hoping for! We were looking for a romantic, non-religious, more civil ceremony and Rev. Greg was great! I really liked how flexible Rev. Greg was with many choices for ceremony, depending on what bride/groom are looking for.
I would highly recommend him for any couple marrying in Oahu, Hawaii!
Few pictures with Greg:
We were so fortunate to have Reverend Greg as our wedding officiant. He helped keep order during the wait for the ceremony to start. He was very patient and helped everyone to adapt to the windy weather situation for our outdoor wedding. Thanks Reverend Greg!
I would give value for cost more stars if I could. We were actually already married at the time of our ceremony - we just wanted to do one for our families, etc. Rev. Greg was super easy to work with. I didn't give him too much guidance - I just wanted a non-denominational, simple ceremony. He went with that and it turned out great! Definitely recommended!
Rev. Greg is fun, professional, personable, flexible and passionate about his work. Through our emails back and forth he got to know my husband and I very well, and chose wonderful things to say at our ceremony. He knew it was important to us to show respect for the Hawaiian culture but was not lengthy and I did not feel lectured as I have felt at many other weddings I have attended. Everyone who was there said our wedding was the most beautiful they had ever been to, and although my opinion may be biased, I agree. He was patient when my husband cried during the ceremony, didn't mind hanging out on a catamaran with our crazy family for three hours, and reminded us that we needed to sign the marriage license! He also brought his wife Jolene who is also a lovely person. This couple was a great addition to our wedding and it wouldn't have been nearly as amazing without them.
We were very pleased with Reverend Greg and would definitely recommend him. I had a hard time looking for officiants online - since we wanted a civil ceremony, we didn't get married at a church and had to get an officiant separately. In addition, a lot of the Hawaii officiants seemed sort of Hawaii cheesy - I'm born and bred in Hawaii and didn't see the need for conch shells and Hawaiian chants. Reverend Greg gave us a copy of his standard civil ceremony before booking, so we could see that it was something that we were comfortable with, and he was flexible in allowing us to insert a lei ceremony and make a few other changes. He had four weddings on the day of my wedding, and two on the day of my rehearsal, but we never felt rushed - he took the time to provide quality service before going on to his other engagements. Of course, he also does Christian and other ceremonies as well. I was nervous getting an officiant off the web, but it turned out wonderfully.
Rev. Greg was great. He made us feel comfortable and made the ceremony perfect. There was a mix up on the rehearsal where Rev. Greg could not make it, but his wife call and talked me through the entire ceremony so we were perfectly prepared for the day of.
Very nice, Good communication before the wedding and did everything just the way we wanted it during the ceremony. He's a good speaker and everyone could hear him speak at our beach wedding. Highly recommend! He also gives a special price to military and if you have your wedding at a military base.
It was always my son in laws dream to be married on a tropical beach and the wedding was picture perfect (except for your lost sunglasses)! The ceremony you performed was very relaxed and polished and demonstrated your experience and talent. The mother and father of the groom expressed their complete satisfaction with the event and we were all very happy for our children. Again, thanks for the wonderful memories! Sincerely,Bob Forsythe
Hello from Robert and Lara,
We just wanted to say thank you for the beautiful wedding ceremony. KeIki beach was a perfect location for us, thank you so much for making the drive. I couldn't have imagined a more beautiful day and ceremony. Again, thank you so much - it was perfect!
Dear Reverend Christopherson,
We just wanted to drop you a line a nd say thank you for services in marrying my wife and I ( Shawn and Sandy Nobes at the Koolau Golf Club) back on august 30th.(2009) We both felt that our wedding was a very special one and that it went off very well. Thank you for such a nice service. All our guests remarked how much they liked it. You opened the service with the traditional Hawaiian conch and also read a Hawaiian blessing. These added a very nice touch of "aloha" to the wedding and we appreciate the extra effort...it set the mood and made a lasting impression on our friends and family. Thank you.
Great to work with.
Rev. Christopherson is easy to work with, laid back but professional. He puts the bride and groom at ease and makes the ceremony enjoyable. He is always on time and never in a rush to get to another appointment. We appreciate Rev. Christopherson.
