We're an older couple, first time for both of us to be married. Went with IslanderWeddings based on the reviews. Totally met our expectations! We picked Makapu'u Beach - gorgeous setting on the beach with lava rocks around/ocean behind. Robert did a great job officiating - ukele player was great with traditional songs - and now just waiting for the photos! Very easy to work with and everything went smoothly.Sent on 05/28/2019

So happy with our whole experience!
It was incredible working with Robert and Naomi! I can’t recommend them enough if you are looking for a dream Hawaii wedding experience without the stress that comes from planning a larger wedding. They are kind, responsive, knowledgeable, truly professional, and will treat you like family. I happened upon Islander Weddings in a google search when we decided to plan a small elopement due to uncertainty with Covid 19. We ultimately booked with them because of their quick responses and willingness to provide guidance even though we hadn’t even secured our date yet. They surpassed the other companies I reached out to and they bent over backwards to make sure we had the exact date, location and experience we desired. Everything went so smoothly throughout the whole process and we got to focus on the excitement and enjoying a laid back vacation rather than getting bogged down with details and logistics. The ceremony was perfect, the ukulele was played beautifully, the photographer captured everything just right, and the videographer blew us away. I highly recommend upgrading to the videography package. We will have beautiful memories of our wedding forever and we can’t thank Robert and Naomi enough for providing us with the stress-free wedding of our dreams. We also set up a live stream using the LoveCast app which allowed us to include our family and friends who couldn’t attend. It wasn’t how I expected our wedding planning to go because of a global pandemic, but if I had to do it again, I wouldn’t change a thing!!Sent on 01/28/2021

Please use Robert and Naomi!
Wow, we couldn't have had a better experience! Robert was organised and lovely from our first contact and beyond. He was so relaxed and nothing was too much a bother for him! He planned our wedding ceremony perfectly as we imagined and it ran beautifully! He works with great vendors- our photographer and videographer were amazing, Ellworth was awesome and fun! Naomi's singing voice is beautiful. The flower isle and decor was beautiful. On the day Robert made sure everything ran smoothly and did it ever- it was perfect. He was truely happy to be there and so lovely. We are so so happy and thankful to Robert and his team for our wedding ceremony, it was beyond what we hoped for and we can't recommended him enough to anyone reading this review. You will be truly looked after in all the small details of your wedding ceremony. Robert cares that everything is done as planned and you have a good experience down to the smallest details. He cared what way the wind blew in my hair and veil and organised the ceremony accordingly- I wouldn't have even thought of that but it made such a difference! He directed the proceedings perfectly and in such a welcoming way. It was like having another friend at our ceremony! Thank you always Robert!Sent on 09/21/2019
Islander Weddings's reply:Thank you Katrina & Ananta. It was a pleasure to help with your wedding at Leahi Park. Hope to see you both in Hawaii again some day! Best Wishes, Robert & Naomi

Islander Weddings is the BEST!!!
Robert with Islander Weddings performed our ceremony on 9/6/19 at Makapu'u Beach and we COULD NOT be more pleased with how everything turned out!!!! Our wedding was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT and EVERYTHING we had dreamed it could be!!!
Little did he know that we had done months of research and comparisons of the 100+ wedding vendors available on the island of Oahu! I am so happy that we decided to go with Islander Weddings!!! Robert and his team of professionals did not disappoint!!!
Robert impressed me from day one by being very responsive, patient and understanding to my plethora of emails with questions and concerns, as we were planning this destination wedding from 4800 miles away, but also on a predetermined budget. He worked with us to create a package that was PERFECT to our wants and needs, then he and his team made our dream come to fruition!!! 😁
We arrived on the beach never having met Robert or his team in person, but was immediately set at ease that there was no need to worry!! We were in great hands and had the BEST day of our lives!!!! 😁
Mahalo to Robert for making our dream wedding come true flawlessly, to Kaipo for playing your Ukelele and singing so beautifully and to Marty and Michelle for capturing and producing STUNNING videos and pictures of our special day!!! Many blessings to you ALL!!!! 💗
To those of you looking to wed or renew your vows in Oahu, look no further. Islander Weddings is the best!!!!! 😍Sent on 10/13/2019
Islander Weddings's reply:Thank you Leavonies! We loved your wedding at Makapu'u Beach. Everything turned out great and we couldn't be happier for you both! Best Wishes, Robert

Dream Wedding Check!
My husband & I are from Philadelphia and have always had our hearts set on marrying in Hawaii- well more me;) We are lucky enough to have family as well in Oahu. Once I found Islander Weddings all the planing could happen. Robert answering the million questions I had even with the six hour time difference quickly and extremely detailed.
The wedding day was flawless. Picture perfect. Amazing company to work with, amazing prices, amazing photography. Wish we could get married every year.

Maureen · Married on 08/21/2018
Islander Weddings did an EXCEPTIONAL job with our 25 year wedding vow renewal! Our daughter worked with Robert, our Minister, to surprise us with an anniversary to remember forever! Naomi sang us a beautiful Hawaiian wedding song and played the ukulele... her voice was like an angel singing! Our photographers were OUTSTANDING! They helped us feel extremely comfortable and took special photos that we requested, like writing in the sand along the shoreline (a thank you note to our daughter)! Our limousine driver Scott was on time and drove us through the most beautiful scenic route to our destination of Waimanalo beach! Afterward Scott dropped us off at “the top of Waikiki” a rotating restaurant which was also AMAZING! We truly could not of had a more memorable and beautiful day! Mahalo to Islander Weddings!Sent on 08/22/2018
Islander Weddings's reply:Thank you Maureen! We loved your Vow Renewal Ceremony. Everything turned out great and we couldn't be happier for you both! Best Wishes, Robert

We are a military couple stationed on Oahu and chose to have an intimate wedding ceremony with our family and friends at Waimanalo Beach. Everything from the quick responsiveness to the personalization of our ceremony to the ukulele musician and the photographer was top notch and completely worth every penny. Islander weddings offered the best value and we were more than satisfied and grateful for everything our package included. I have to give a quick shout out to Jolene the photographer who did a phenomenal job and had our pictures edited and ready for printing just 3 days after the wedding. Thank you Robert, Jolene and Islander Weddings for making our day everything we had dreamed of!Sent on 07/26/2018
Islander Weddings's reply:Thank you! We loved your wedding at Waimanalo Bay. Everything turned out great and we couldn't be happier for you both! Best Wishes, Robert

We recently got married in Hawaii and Robert was our celebrant. We organised everything from over 5,000 miles away in Sydney, and after corresponding with Robert over a few emails the whole thing was sorted. Nothing too big. No request too hard. He made the process so easy and stress free. And the day? The best day of our lives. And it went off without a hitch, it was absolutely perfect. Robert’s beautiful and kind words along with the way the ceremony was structured and the music was beyond what words can describe. We would recommend Robert to anyone in a heartbeat, you won’t find someone with that level of service who makes it so easy anywhere else. Robert, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.Sent on 04/14/2018

My wife and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary with a vow renewal in beautiful Oahu on November 18 2017. It was an absolutely beautiful day. Robert, performed a beautiful and touching ceremony and was also great to involve our two young boys. Naomi sang beautifully and added such a great energy to the occasion.Sent on 12/28/2017
From the moment I first reached out to Islander Weddings to inquire about the process, nothing was too much trouble. All communication was prompt, friendly and very accommodating. Any concerns about me trying to arrange a vow renewal while being overseas was quickly alleviated with the absolute professionalism and amazing customer service. Even when we arrived, on the island, we were contacted promptly to see how our trip was going so far and if Islander Weddings could support us even more than they already had. We were given great directions to the agreed vow renewal destination (Waialae Beach).
Lastly, Michelle the professional photographer we had on the day was incredible and the photos she took really captured just how beautiful the day was for us.
I would highly recommend Islander Weddings to anyone looking to have their special day celebrated in the way it deserves to be celebrated.
Thank you Robert and Naomi!

Aloha! Our wedding experience with Robert Roche and his beautiful and talented wife Naomi was outstanding, they are both very professional, friendly and a lot of fun as well. The ceremony was beautiful!, and the location Ala Moana Beach Park was amazing!, such a wonderful afternoon with a gorgeous sunset it was!. Naomi played the ukelele and sang some traditional and spiritual Hawaiian wedding songs during the ceremony, she has a beautiful voice which was very soothing and calming exactly what a nervous about to be married couple needed. The photographer Jolene was amazing as well, gorgeous pictures!. We were married on March 18th, 2017. I give all credit to my lovely husband who googled wedding planners and thank God he came across islanderweddings.com, we couldn't believe how reasonably priced islander weddings was, we were expecting a much higher price tag. We had talked in the past of what type of wedding we wanted to have and everything that was discussed was made possible and we have Robert to thank for that! He made all of the arrangements and was helpful in the decision making process, you can reach him by e-mail or phone and he is very prompt at getting back to you immediately. I would absolutely recommend Islander Weddings to anybody wanting to get married in paradise!Sent on 04/03/2017

Coming from the East coast of the main land, I was leery about doing business online with someone so far away, but Robert and Naomi did not disappoint me at all. They were on time and ready for my vow renewal ceremony. They accommodated my requests, included my parents and even had umbrellas for me to hide under because it rained before we started. (It also rained on my actual wedding day which is good luck). The ceremony was beautiful and the photographer got some really good shots. I received my pictures not long after we got home from our trip.Sent on 06/25/2016

Melissa · Married on 04/10/2016
Rob and Naomi were so helpful when we were planning our wedding. Having never been to Hawaii, I had no idea what location to pick. Rob helped me pick out a beach near where we were staying at the Kahala. They gave us step by step instructions on what we needed to do to have our marriage license ready for the big deal (so helpful!). The ceremony was beautiful - it just flew by, I wish I could go back and do it on slow-motion! I am so happy with Islander Weddings - they picked out the perfect beach for our ceremony, gave us a lovely ceremony, and made the day that little bit less stressful that it needed. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to friends and family.Sent on 05/01/2016

The ceremony was beautiful and the location was nothing short of amazing. Naomi played the ukele and sang during the ceremony, she has a beautiful voice which was very soothing and calming since we were both a nervous wreck, we were married on my husbands birthday and they sang happy birthday to him at the end which I thought was very thoughtful! My husband planned this engagement and wedding as a surprise to me! He was referred to Robert from someone local on the island. He said he couldn't believe how reasonably priced islander weddings was he was expecting a much higher price tag.
