Rev. James has been involved in Hawaii weddings for over 15 years. Having lived in Hawaii for most of his life, James is familiar with it's local culture and happily calls Hawaii his home. "Hawaii has given me a home, friends and my beautiful wife and children", says James. James resided in Aiea along with his wife of over 20 years, two daughters and doggies - Chewie and Solo.

In his early 20's, after a visit from his lifelong friend, who works in Hollywood, James was introduced to the world of film. After some training, James then started a video production company that still operates today.

During his free time, James enjoys movies, cooking and staying fit at the gym; but most of all, spending time with family and friends.

"I believe that God designed us all with the unique ability to create happiness in ourselves and those around us", says James. He believes there are five things that everyone should practice regularly.

1 Pray - Give thanks for where we are, pray for guidance in where we want to go.

2 Be Active - Activity is good for the body and the mind. It reduces stress, lifts your mood and keeps you young.

3 Work - The pursuit of happiness is often more rewarding than the prize.

4 Love - The most important thing in life are your relationships. Cherish each of them daily.

5 Experience - Try something new. It could be as simple as trying a new route on a daily run or a new restaurant. New experiences always bring joy and freshness to life.

Rev Chun is amazing!

Rev. James Chun was easy to work with and incredibly accommodating throughout our wedding process. He was understanding about all of our date changes (3 in total!), and overall radiated a kind, warm, and gentle spirit. I've never been to a wedding before, and was nervous about all the specifics, but he reassured us over the phone and guided us through the process with patience and understanding. On the day of the wedding, he brought that same warm energy to the ceremony! We highly recommend Rev. James Chun!
