Affordable Weddings of Hawaii has been taking excellent care of couples from all over the world since 1978. Each wedding is personally cared for by our ministers, with a goal of accomplishing the couples' desires while keeping it within their budget, so when they say to you "We will help you in any way we can", you can be assured that it is coming from a sincere heart that really cares.

Being able to work directly with the Minister that will perform your ceremony will mean much more than working with a service and being married by a complete stranger. Your wedding is the most important day of your life, you can trust us to make it everything you desire it to be.

We were married on June 25th 2013 at Makapu'u Beach. Karen is truly wonderful and speaks from her heart and soul. We were tearful with joy and happiness. We will be back for our daughters wedding and our renewal within a year. We will no doubt only have Karen do the ceremony. Thanks Karen for an unforgettable wedding.

Fantastic Renewal Ceremony!

I surprised my wife by using this company to renew our wedding vows during our cruise stop in Honolulu. Rev. Karen performed an outstanding ceremony, one we will cherish forever! Thank you so very much!

July 2, 2011 - Makapu'u Beach, Hawaii
Choosing Affordable Weddings of Hawaii was the best decision we have EVER made!! Whether you choose the least expensive package, or the most elaborate, you will be treated just the same by the wonderful staff. Rev. Karen Russ, Jimmie our photographer, and the wonderful videographer, Marcelle, each gave special attention to our every need. We would HIGHLY recommend Weddings of Hawaii to anyone who wants to truly have a magical, meaningful wedding that will be remembered forever!! Makapu'u Beach was the perfect location choice for us, but many choices are available to choose from. By my request, at the last minute, Karen was able to provide me with a dream bouquet. She REALLY listens to what you want, and then she makes sure that you REALLY get it!! No matter what services you choose, you will not be disappointed in any way. Thank you for Everything -- you certainly go above and beyond!!
With Love,
Andrea & Michael Tiffany

Absolutely perfect wedding!

The staff are all amazing! I found this company online, called them to discuss my dream wedding and they finalized it all. I am so very impressed with all of their hard work and I cannot thank them enough. If you or anyone you know are thinking of getting married in Hawaii and having a destination wedding I strongly recommend you consider Wed Hawaii! I myself was a little nervous since all communication was through the Internet or on the phone but there was no reason for it! I promise you will be happy with your beautiful wedding. Thank you again for everything! :-) Our wedding was perfect!!

The most beautiful wedding 1/11/11

We are so thankful that we chose Weddings of Hawaii for our special day. We were married in January 2011 at Makapu�u Beach in Oahu. Reverend Russ and her team made it even more perfect than we thought possible.

We researched many vendors before deciding on Weddings of Hawaii, but after seeing sample videos with Reverend Russ as the officiant in them, and speaking to the team via emails, our decision was easily made. We chose the floral runway which was beautiful, and we also had a bridal bouquet and boutonniere made for us. Rev. Russ was kind enough to place some flowers in my hair as well, which was the perfect touch.

Leading up to the big day, we always maintained great communication with Rev. Russ. She always responded to our emails promptly and answered many of our questions in a friendly manner yet very thorough. It never felt business-like.

Rev. Russ was also extremely flexible with our wedding plans even when the weather wasn�t cooperating. The words she spoke during the ceremony were incredibly beautiful and tears of joy were hard to hold back. Our day couldn�t have gone any better.

A BIG thank you to Reverend Russ and Weddings of Hawaii - you made our wedding in Hawaii a memorable one!

- Feel free to email me with any questions, etc...I'm happy to share our experience further.

We had such a fabulous experience from the planning to the actual ceremony. The staff was so helpful. Our hotel was so awesome and beautiful. Our ceremony was spectacular at the most gorgeous and romantic location. We loved Pastor Karen and I can't say enough great things about our photographer, James Carson III, his pictures were beautiful and amazing! We didn't know what to expect and it was better than we could have ever dreamed!! Truly the best!! I am eternally grateful to them for giving me the best wedding and memories for a lifetime!!

My wife and I got married on September 3, 2009. We used Weddings of Hawaii based on a recommendation from a friend of mine and let me tell you it was the best advice ever. Pastor Karen was in 2 words totally awesome. She was very kind and said and made our ceremony perfect. The photographer James C Carson III was incredible and probably one of the friendliest guys I have ever met. He said we were naturals with the posing and we made it very easy for him. There was not one thing I could say negative about all who participated in making this wonderful event take place. If you are looking for a wedding getaway done right, look no further. You can let the experts handle every aspect of your perfect day, while you just sit back drinking Mai Tai's on the beach with no worries...just don't forget to show up for your own wedding! Weddings of Hawaii is the way to go, you will not be disappointed.
