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!
We wanted to do something special for our 10th wedding anniversary and always dreamed of visiting Hawaii. We found Deanna’s “Adventure Weddings” online and decided to go for a waterfall wedding! Thanks to Deanna, we had the experience of a lifetime!!!! Our ceremony exceeded our expectations. Deanna took us to a private location and led us down a private trail to a waterfall where we renewed our wedding vows! Our ceremony was so beautiful both because we were able to recite our original vows but also because we were completely alone on the rocks in front of a rushing waterfall! This was the one of the most incredible experiences of our lives! Our wedding renewal ceremony was amazing and we are so grateful to Deanna for making this experience possible for us! Thank you Deanna!!!!
We were wowed by Deanna's professionalism and feel incredibly lucky to have found her as our officiant. We felt intimidated to coordinate event details (let alone a wedding) across timezones and countries but Deanna put all that worry to rest. From our first consultation, Deanna acted as our guide to the island she loves so much. She recommended the best event locations, places for family to stay and sight see (she did this even after our ceremony in a follow up email - super nice touch). Her communication has awesome: clear, prompt emails and reminders to keep our date on track along with progress updates for things she had to coordinate on the island to reserve the best time + location. The ceremony is where Deanna really shined; her delivery was heartfelt, audible and simply perfect. She even took the time to make us the most beautiful leis, something we were not expecting.
More than a review, we really wanted to say thank you for everything Deanna. So grateful our paths crossed and can't wait for you to repeat this experience for the many couples after us.
We came up with the idea of eloping on our previously planned trip about a week + before we left. I did some research and found Deanna, of Kona Wedding Officiant. and we were utterly delighted with how helpful she was in directing us to the steps required by the State of Hawaii as well as great suggestions for possible locations to scout. Her ceremony was beautiful and very deeply meaningful. We loved working with them!
We renewed our wedding vows with Deanna and couldn't be happier. We had an intimate Hawaiian ceremony on a private beach in Kona. Never having been to the Big Island, we originially wanted to have our ceremony at Magic Sands, but Deanna recommended Kukio Beach and we are so glad she did now that we have been to both beaches. Our ceremony was so special and made us feel like there was no one else in the world but us. We highly recommend Deanna to anyone who is looking for an officiant on the Big Island.
We had a wonderful experience from start to finish with a traditional Hawaiian ceremony by Deanna. She offers several wedding options and our selection of Hawaiian was so unique and fitting for for our beach wedding at Waialea - great location.
Deanna was very responsive and so helpful in making all arrangements toassure the ceremony would be exactly what we wanted, as well as the details to make our wedding special.
Our ceremony was partially in Hawaiian and English and I think no matter how many guests you have in attendance, everyone would enjoy experiencing the ancient traditions such as sand blending and our ring blessing.
As far as my wife and I are concerned, Deanna is the best and she exceeded our highest expectations from our first contact thru actual ceremony, about 4 months. Mike and Ruth
