Big Island Weddings and Vow Renewals is a professional wedding officiant (and basic photography/videography - details below) service located in Waikoloa, Hawaii. Owned and operated by a married couple, Big Island Weddings and Vow Renewals have been officiating weddings for over 26 years. From planning the ceremony to pre-marital and post-marital mentoring, Big Island Weddings and Vow Renewals is committed to making your special day everything you envisioned. We travel anywhere in the state of Hawaii and promise affordable prices.
OFFICIATING: While we have several "standard" ceremony features, we stand by our pledge to make it "your special day." Whatever you want to do, that is what we want to do for you. Our typical ceremony includes several beautiful Hawaiian traditions. These include: the sacred blowing of the pu conch shell, a lei exchange, a "Honi Greeting", repeat after me style Hawaiian words of love and promise, koa wood bowl ring blessing and more. Additional services include pre and post-marriage counseling, customized ceremonies, license assistance, location assistance, referral assistance finding a professional caterer, florist, professional photographer and more.
"BASIC" PHOTOGRAPHY: We can provide basic photography services (using your smartphone or autofocus, point, and shoot camera) to capture the special moment you say “I do" at a fraction of the cost of a professional photographer. We also offer a stationary, high definition video of your ceremony. Shot over the shoulder of the officiant with a closeup of the couple throughout the ceremony. We then edit the footage, tweak sound, image, etc. Add titles on the front and back with your names, the date and the location. Finally, we put some beautiful music underneath it all. We then e-mail you the final product, usually within a week of your ceremony.
If you prefer a professional photographer for your still shots - we have two we can highly recommend.

Wonderful and magical
Greg lead our wedding ceremony wonderfully! He began with traditional Hawaiian practices and maintained the ceremony gospel centered. My husband and I appreciated that Greg took the time to pray for my husband's injured hand. Overall a great experience and I'm very glad we chose Greg to lead our ceremony!Sent on 09/07/2019
