Deanna was absolutely amazing! The wedding ceremony was so intimate and beautiful with her flowers and hand-made leis and flower crown. She was quick to respond in her emails and answered all of the questions we had prior to the ceremony. Deanna made the ceremony memorable and the marriage license/certification process super easy and simple. Our photographer Gerald, was also amazing. He made us feel comfortable and took many great pictures. I would definitely recommend Deanna as your officiant or for your vow renewals!
Lori and I spent 10 wonderful days in Kona, where I am originally from, and Lori's first time visiting Hawaii. We had an idea to elope but didn't have any plans ahead of time. Since this was a ceremony for the two of us, we didn't want to spend a lot. The first quote was more than we wanted to spend and their website didn't provide details for what you would receive so we kept searching and came upon Deanna's site. It listed many detailed options so we called and left a message and also sent an email. Boy, talk about fantastic communication. She called back a few hours later and provided additional information via email the same day. Deanna's very accommodating and provided options for the ceremony and whether we wanted any special additions. Deanna recommended a few beach locations and we settled on a small, very secluded beach. It was a public beach but we had it all to ourselves. She performed a beautiful ceremony, one we will both cherish for our lifetime. To anyone that is interested in having their wedding ceremony on the Big Island, definitely contact Deanna, she won’t disappoint. She exceeded our expectations. Mahalo nui loa, Deanna, for making our ceremony unforgettable.
Deanna did such an amazing job as our officiant. The communication was great and she was always on top of the dates and scheduling appointments for us right on time. The ceremony was AMAZING, we loved every minute of it, the beautiful words of commitment and the sand blending, she made it so easy and personal. Highly recommend!!!
Deanna was superb!! The praise for her conduction of our ceremony has continued to stream in beyond our wedding week!
So very professional in her protocols and thoughtful in the added personal touches. Would absolutely again call upon her at renewal time!
Mahalo nui loa, Deanna!!

We eloped just the two of us and she made everything so simple and easy. Taking care of everything will little communication needed. I am very thankful we were so lucky and I highly recommend her. She did the ceremony perfectly and just how we wanted. It was nice being on our trip and not having to worry because she had everything under control!
Deanna helped us plan our last minute ceremony. We called her that morning and were married by that same evening. The semi private beach she found us was beautiful. The whole process was seamless I don't see why everyone doesn't married in Hawaii at the last minute. Thank you so much for making everything possible!
We had an amazing experience with Deanna. She is very attentive to details and very easy to work with. Communication was great and the ceremony itself was beautiful! I loved everything from flowers on the sand to Hawaiian words of commitment and beautiful singing. I highly recommend Deanna, she is the best!
We highly recommend Deanna with Kona wedding officiant! Deanna was very accommodating and flexible. She was easily available and very organized with each little detailed attained to. Deanna gave us plenty of options for our beach wedding, plus assisted us with getting marriage license. Our wedding day could not have been more beautiful, thanks to Kona wedding officiant. From Deanna, the ceremony, and the photographer, everything was perfect. We have not got our professional photos back yet. But, Im confident they will be beautiful. Lots of candid photography, which I love because it captures the moment and time, not just the staged pose. Mahalo, Aaron & Lisa
Deanna was a great officiant for our wedding. Especially since we were organizing our Kona wedding from New Zealand, she was instrumental in helping us to find the right location (Kukio Beach) and help us get all of the requisite details right. Her patience with last minute questions was greatly appreciated and she went the extra mile to make the day something special.
Deanna our wedding Officiate helped with our marriage license since we were from out of state. Deanna helped us with the island information and tourist spot directions.
The wedding ceremony was simple, beautiful, and performed perfectly on a beautiful beach in Paradise.
Thank you Deanna,
Lisa and Todd

We couldn’t be happier about our experience with Deanna! She was amazing. Everything was taken care of down to appointments being made, she did everything for us so our day was smooth and effortless! The ceremony she performed for us was magical and full of the true aloha spirit. Her photographer and videographer took Breathtaking pictures and a video that Captured every moment of our beautiful day. We simply couldn’t be happier with the choice we made by choosing Deanna
( our Kona Wedding Officiant ) to Perform our ceremony. Aloha & Mahalo to you!
My partner and I decided to get married in Hawaii in May 2019. We wanted it to be simple and just the two of us. Deanna, our officiant, made navigating through the process very easy. She offered a few locations for the ceremony, including one that we had to hike to (we chose this location). It was an experience we will never forget. I highly recommend Deanna and her photographer. Thank you!
My partner and I were married by Deanna back in January 2019. Deanna was an absolutely wonderful person to work with, she guided us several months before our wedding and was very warm and excited for us during our talk on the phone.
Deanna is very professional, she filed all the proper permits for our beach wedding, had all of the leis, documents and other items for our ceremony, and even recommended me the beach that we eventually got married on.
I knew we were in good hands when we met with our marriage license officer to obtain our documents the night before the wedding and she remarked "Oh, you have Deanna as your officiant? She's great, she took care of all the hard work for you already!"
Deanna made our wedding perfect with absolutely no problems, and I would recommend her services to anyone looking to get married in Kona. 5 stars all the way!
