Perfect Local Wedding

Our north shore dream wedding was realized with the help of amazing Kawena and her Kahiapo Talent crew. It was perfect and Kawena was able to match everything perfectly to our requests for flowers, music, etc. The ceremony itself was beyond my imagination it was truly touching and a memory we will remember forever. Thank you so much, Kawena for being there with us on this special day!

Amazing experience, did not break the bank!!

Kawena and her team provided an incredibly spiritual, pure, and beautiful ceremony for my wife and me. We went with her as the officiant, ukulele player, and marriage license package.

The marriage license package allowed us to do everything virtually, no driving downtown, no long lines, just a 5-minute conversation with her associate! I think it was really cheap too so it was definitely worth it!

The ukulele player was FANTASTIC. He played beautifully and was very charismatic, they also did something for us "in the moment" that made the day extra special.

Kawena did the ceremony, and she brought the essence of Hawaii. She sang, offered advice for the day, eased anxiety, and had an amazing voice. We are so thrilled we went with Kahiopo talent and we wouldn't change a thing!

Thank you so much!!

Dreamy Hawaiian style wedding

We were lucky to work with Kawena and her talented and sweet crew - ukulele player, videographer, and photographer. Our little wedding on the beach could not have been more perfect with the gentle ukulele playing and Kawena's beautiful voice and meaningful and powerful words, incorporating melodious Hawaiian chants and vows. The videographer and photographer captured every moment and presented them so celestially. Because of COVID, we had a small, intimate ceremony, but were able to share our momentous day with our loved ones with the video and photos. I cannot recommend Kahiapo Talent more, so thankful for their professional, thoughtful, and talented services.
