We had an amazing experience with Deanna! She is very knowledgeable and it was very easy to work with her. She has great packages on her website which include everything you need for an outstanding price!
We wanted a very private wedding ceremony on a secluded beach and her recommendation was great! Our only two witnesses were two sea turtles!
We highly recommend Deanna with Kona Wedding Officiant!
We were married by Deanna at a private home in Kamuela, and she was an absolutely wonderful celebrant. We could not have asked for more. She was incredibly helpful in the lead up to the wedding, guiding us through the ins and outs of what needed doing, whilst providing numerous rewrites of the ceremony as we worked out what we wanted. She was tremendously supportive, and this was a great help to us. As visitors to Hawaii from Australia, having that kind of guidance was fantastic. Lastly, the ceremony itself was wonderful. We thought Deanna was a brilliant celebrant, and so did our families and guests.
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!

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!
