About

$250 Typical Price

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!

    Hawaii Wedding Studio

    Having a spur of the moment decision to elope while on our joint birthday celebration in Hawaii
    and keeping it a surprise from my family makes it extra nerve wrecking to find a wedding officiant. Here comes Rev James Chun to the rescue! My fiancé originally planned on surprising me by inviting my mother and brother to our planned joint birthday vacation in Hawaii. Due to logistical issues, that plan fell through and their secret was out. So then I asked my fiancé since my family was already coming with us if she was willing to elope while we were there. She said, “Sure, why not?” So we kept that as a surprise from them until the ceremony day. Finding Rev James Chun’s website was super easy. His video explaining the process made it really simple to follow, every step of the way. This includes tips on getting your marriage license from the Department of Health. The day of our wedding turned out to be the most memorable, it was at the end of the day during golden hour on my birthday. We chose Magic Island Beach as our event location. There were multiple other weddings happening around us taking all the choice spots, so we found a gorgeous location with Diamond Head mountain as the backdrop. Rev James had very eloquent words for our ceremony and even suggested a flower shop we could go to for our traditional wedding leis. We opted to also hire his recommended photographer who took excellent images of our day. Not a dry eye between all of us during our vow exchange, so this made for a more special intimate ceremony. We highly recommend Hawaii Wedding Studio if you are in need of a wedding officiant and plan on getting married in paradise. Even if you’re Mainlanders looking for a more intimate elopement, Rev James can accommodate your every need. This sure beats getting hitched in a courthouse, or a Las Vegas Drive Thru…
