From start to finish, my experience with IWTMYW was a seamless and wonderful process. Reverend Watters and Jade did an amazing job planning our afternoon ceremony at Makapu’u beach. Jade answered all of my questions through email quickly, and I was glad they have ala carte items to add to your package such as a wedding bouquet. The ceremony performed by Reverend Waters was absolutely beautiful. I wanted to walk down the aisle to a theme song played on speaker, so Reverend Waters sang the Hawaiian wedding song after the ceremony, giving my husband and I our first dance, which was one of my favourite moments. My husband loved it when he blew the conch! It was an amazing experience on the most perfect day and I’m so glad we chose IWTMYW. I highly recommend them! Mahalo Jade & Reverand Watters!Sent on 06/06/2019

Reliable and emotional
We were very happy with IWTMYW. We were able to organize everything from Germany and it worked very reliably. Our ceremony was held by Rev. Waters. He did a great job, personally and emotionally, taking good care of us when we were very nervous. Thank you! The ukulele player was well worth it. Great song selection! Has contributed to a successful wedding in a beautiful atmosphere.Sent on 11/14/2019

Unforgetable experience, we couldn’t have imagined a more perfect and beautiful ceremony! Would recommend to anyone looking for a romantic beach wedding. Will definitely do it again. Haha just kidding ;) Thank you for your patience and thank you for making our wedding day so beautiful. You have exceeded our expectations.Sent on 09/07/2019

Went out of their way to make our day special!
Rev. Watters and Jade accepted our request to marry us on the Makaha shore. Many of the officiants in Oahu wouldn't come to that side of the island. The beauty of the shoreline at sunset along with the flowered arch, sand ceremony, the wonderful service performed by Rev. Watters and so much more made our day so special. Getting married in Hawaii was a dream come true. Thank you for making our memories beautiful.Sent on 08/20/2019

Amazing vow renewal ceremony
We recently renewed our wedding vows and it was a more beautiful experience than when we got married. Reverend Watters and his wife made the ceremony very spiritual and moving. The reverend took care of all the details of the ceremony. He also sent us a link to the photos and we were extremely pleased with the results. We highly recommend them to conduct your ceremony.Sent on 07/14/2019

We flew from Sydney, Australia to get married in beautiful sunny Hawaii in June 2019. Prior to the ceremony, we contacted to ensure all our questions were answered, and the ceremony went the way we envisioned. The day of the ceremony was memorable and went without a hitch. Jade arranged my flowers the way I wanted without any problem, and Rev. was fantastic. My husband was nervous and Rev. Watters made him feel calm and joked around to ease any pressure. I would not hesitate to recommend this company, and hope to renew my vows with this company in the future. Thank you for Rev. Watters and Jade for the memorable beach wedding experience in one of the most beautiful places.Sent on 07/03/2019

Honest, Creative, Committed
To all those mired in the anxiety, uncertainty and glut of information that befalls us as we begin our pursuit of our ideal wedding day, my best advice is to locate a local resource that you can depend on to help you throughout the process. The stability I needed came via the consideration and professionalism of Jade and Rev Watters.Sent on 05/19/2019
I thoroughly vetted 3 vendors before selecting a Planner. I probably spent 4-6 weeks in communication with them all essentially waiting for them to disqualify themselves. Having never been to Hawaii, I had a million questions and at times I'd get 3 answers from the Planners even though logically there could only be one. Jade was the one. Several times I was able to validate what she was recommending or explaining was more accurate than the other vendors I had contacted. With each answer, my trust grew in her. And bless her soul, she must have sent hundreds of emails to me over the full process. I'm all about details and she stuck with me through everything from venue type to catering and floral arrangements to music selection. One of my unique requests was finding a caterer for an off-resort activity. That activity center had their own caterers, but I convinced them to allow the outside vendor. Upon seeing what was catered and how it was presented, we were told the selection and taste was better than anything their 'preferred' vendors had ever delivered. My guests felt the same. Jade made sure the selection of food would accommodate the the dietary diversity needed for my party. (Thank You, Jade!)
When I was first introduced to Rev Watters, within minutes I felt like we were friends. He listened and understood I was a bit unsure of what I wanted, but at the same time I was very sure about what we did not want. We talked through scenarios and he provided info that I could research myself. After a few more calls, he was able to visualize how we all could create what we thought was our best wedding environment (Long after we arrived in Hawaii, it was funny to see some of the places he talked about and how accurate his perspective was versus how companies might post settings from 'strategic' camera angles.) Over time, Rev. Watters and I worked through the contract details and he continued to be available in the weeks leading up to our arrival. On the day before the wedding, Rev. Watters was terrific at quickly getting us all relaxed during the walk-through and that brought a level of comfort leading into the big day. He quickly picked up my sense of humor and was able to treat me as an old friend might . . .
As you can tell, I was extremely pleased with their service. I know my meticulous nature can wear on folks, but Jade and Rev. Watters were great from day one until I kissed my bride. Their honestly and their commitment to understand & deliver what we wanted was as good as any one could ever expect.
Give them a call, it will be 15min well spent. Thank you again Jade and Rev Watters!

I highly recommend using the services of I Want to Marry You Weddings for your simple ceremony or full gala wedding on O’ahu. After speaking to several wedding vendors, we chose IWTMYW because of Rev. Watters’ personable and hospitable approach in our discussion on their services. Jade was very attentive to our requests, and I felt comfortable that our ceremony would be in fully capable hands.Sent on 08/28/2018
My now-husband and I couldn’t believe how simple and seamless the entire process of getting married in Hawai’i was, and a large part of that was due to IWTMYW. Even the licensing agent at the Dept. of Health had nothing but great things to say about them. Our ceremony was simple, yet intimate and meaningful, exactly what we wanted. Rev. Watters made us laugh and Jade was right there to capture the essence of our special celebration.
Rev. Watters and Jade, mahalo nui loa for making our marriage ceremony such a momentous and wonderful occasion!
