    Blessed Forever

    Pastor Lani was extremely professional & shared so much from other experiences including hers to make our wedding special. She also, reassured us that if we ever need prayer or just someone to listen to, she would be there! Pastor Lani has been a blessing to our lives!!!

    Highly recommended

    Lani did an amazing job with our intimate wedding on the beach. She selected a perfect spot and was very accommodating and easy to communicate with. She organized our leis and was patient with us when we changed our minds. We were happy to have her be a part of our special day and will remember her fondly.

    Perfectly Amazing Experience!

    Pastor Lani was amazingly perfect! She kept us up to speed on what we needed to do before our big day and was available to help us with any questions she had. She made her expectations clear and did a wonderful work with delivering just what we envisioned. She also shared such heartfelt words at our ceremony! Moments we will never forget!

    Pastor Lani did such a beautiful job. We started with a consultation to talk about what we wanted and how our dream day looked. From there, she made recommendations based on her extensive knowledge to the culture and experience. We wanted a traditional wedding with some Hawaiian twists added in. Everything was perfect. She had our 85 guests laughing and crying. Thank you again!!

    Wow! Pastor Lani was absolutely amazing!
    With her help our ceremony was everything we could have ever wanted. We wanted something very simple and she made it simply spectacular! It could not have been any better.
    She collaborated the verses we chose from the Bible and Hawaiian elements which made our ceremony that much more special!
    If you're looking for someone who is great at what she does and will be committed to you and your partner, Pastor Lani is definitely who you'll want by your side!

    We were extremely happy with the service performed by Pastor Lani. We set up the wedding details by mostly email from Illinois. Everything was easy and painless. It was each our second wedding and we wanted a beautiful ceremony in paradise. It exceeded our expectations. Pastor Lani handled getting us Lei's and laid some beautiful orchids on the sand. Her husband did a fabulous job taking pictures for us. When searching for officiant services and photography this seemed the best priced and there weren't any hidden costs. Pastor Lani listened to us about we wanted her to say and spoke beautifully. What a great way to start a marriage!

    Lani and Mark were awesome to work with. They helped with location, ceremonial details, photography and even provided Leis! Lani's responsiveness was excellent and they truly made our 20 year anniversary / vow renewal something to cherish. Do yourself a favor and call Pastor Lani for your next event!

    I'm really glad Pastor Launi was able to be our officiant. Even during the time leading up to the wedding, she made sure I could trust her and help everything to run more smoothly. She's very sweet and professional and was a great part of our wedding!

    My husband and I renewed our vows on our 35th wedding anniversary, February 2012, with Pastor Lani presiding as the officiant. From the initial email contact, our skyping session from the mainland prior to the ceremony, subsequent correspondence, and finally the ceremony itself - everything was wonderful. Pastor Lani is very energetic, knowledgeable and did a fabulous job. Personally not being familiar with the beaches on the big island, their choice at Ana’eho’omalu Beach was perfect. We renewed our vows at sunset and it was just beautiful.
    I have been a wedding coordinator at my church for the past 10 years and KNOW how important it is to make sure all of the details for a ceremony are covered. We LOVED the verbiage used for the ceremony. It was so pertinent to the years my husband and I have shared and the life experiences we have been through together.
    I would highly recommend them!
    Thank you thank you thank you to Pastor Lani and her assistant Keahi for making our very special day so perfect.

    Pastor Lani Larrua made our beach wedding come true. She's a very kind and caring person, and a pleasure to work with. Communication was great and all was taken care of via email and phone on a short notice. The wedding location she chose and the ceremony were perfect. She really cared about making our wedding a beautiful experience, and it really was.

    Our over-all experience and personal opinion of the services that Lani and Mark Larrua provided is very high! We enjoyed our time with them and they have a sincere love for the Lord and in what they are doing. The only thing that we wish went a little better was the photography services. Our advise to others, be very clear with whom ever you use as to the what level of quality and professionalism you expect out of your photographer and the pictures he or she takes. You don't get a second chance at the photo's, so get it right the first time! We wouldn't trade our experience of getting married on the wonderful Big Island of Hawaii for anything, we had a great time! Love the Lord and love others as He loves you and don't forget to love your new spouse :)
