Best wedding EVER!
If it were possible, I would give Becky and Matt a THOUSAND STARS! Yes, they're that amazing. If you're looking for a low-stress, unforgettable wedding, this is it. Becky answered questions that we didn't even know we had, kept us up-to-date during planning, and has awesome client resources on her site for everything. Meeting her and Matt was a treat - they made us feel special, like our wedding *mattered* to them. In a day and age when it seems like fewer and fewer people deep-down *care* about others, they stand head-and-shoulders above the crowd. Simple. Kona. Beach. Weddings. We got what was advertised, topped off with an ocean of Aloha Spirit. Matt's photography skills are now legend. He used now-hubby's iPhone 10 and one of my colleagues commented that we could use the shots as professional stock photos. I can't express how fortunate I feel to have literally stumbled across Becky in a Google search. I couldn't be happier!Sent on 04/19/2019
Simple Kona Beach Weddings's reply:Jane, I can't express how happy it makes us to read your amazingly kind and detailed feedback, and to know that we succeeded in making your simple wedding memorable and special! Thanks to you and Frank for being so fun and wonderful, and for making our 400th wedding such a treat! Sending love and hugs and endless happiness to you both!

Destination Wedding That Exceeded Expectations
We contacted Becky with Simple Kona Beach weddings 45 days before our arrival on the Big Island. Becky was very friendly and professional and put us at ease during the entire planning process. She covered all of the options and details we would need to decide on prior to our arrival on island. (Marriage license, ceremony location, choice of leis, wedding vows, photo package, etc). Becky was very thorough in covering all pre-ceremony details. Once we arrived we asked to meet with Becky to briefly make our introductions and lay eyes on the beach where the ceremony would take place. Again, Becky was very gracious when we met with her and was flexible in making minor adjustments to our requests.Sent on 09/07/2019
On the day of the ceremony Becky sent us a personalized text letting us know she was available if we had any last minute needs. This was a great touch as we each had a few minor "wedding day jitters".
At the ceremony we met Becky and her husband Matt at the beach location. It was nice getting to know them pre-ceremony and it put both of us at ease. The ceremony was very professional, romantic and tasteful. Interspersed with what we were expecting in a traditional wedding ceremony were some Hawaiian cultural traditions which really helped to memorialize our very special occasion.
Matt did an outstanding job with our photos, Becky later sent us several photos that she herself had taken post ceremony and overall they exceeded our expectations on so many levels and we truly appreciate their attention to detail.

Simple Kona Beach Weddings's reply:Nancy and Frank, thank you so much for this recap of your experience! You two were such a joy to work with every step of the way, and I am so happy we could make your day special!! Sending warm alohas and love your way!

Becky had me from Aloha!
We would highly recommend Becky to perform a wedding if you plan on marrying on the big island. We were sailing on Norwegian’s Pride ship which made a stop in Kona. We were attracted to the beauty of this area and thought it would be a perfect place to say, I do! After a google search we started working with Becky. She had us at Aloha! She never went very long without getting back with me. She made the process simple with recommendations to restaurants, flowers, photographers and even ukulele players! Our day was easy, amazing, and organized. Can’t say enough about how wonderful everything went! ❤️Sent on 08/17/2019
Simple Kona Beach Weddings's reply:Lin and Dawn, I can't tell you how special it was to help you make your dream wedding happen! The joy you brought with you off the ship was infectious, and it was such a pleasure to help you two make things official!! Sending hugs and love to you both!

Our wedding in Hawaii was perfect! We are grateful to Becky for helping us get organized before the wedding, and most importantly amazed by the beautiful ceremony she performed with us on a boat off the Kona shore. Becky is very organized and wonderful to be with. She brought beautiful flowers for the leis, bouquet, and heart to stand in, in addition to other fun surprises and traditions for the ceremony. Becky included our children and captivated our friends and family. Becky also spent the day on a boat with us, which was epic, and even jumped in the water to swim with a whale shark (what a surprise!). Becky felt like part of our friend/family group during our time together. Highly recommended!Sent on 08/15/2019

Our Wedding Day, couldn’t have been more perfect! Becky is absolutely FANTASTIC to work with!
Everyone knows how stressful it is, trying to organize a wedding. Try putting it together in three (3) weeks time! My partner and I have been Big Island Residents for 17 years. Our anniversary was on August 4, and we briefly thought about doing the ceremony here at home.....until we saw this fabulous website, called “SIMPLE KONA BEACH WEDDINGS”! We doubted that our anniversary date would be available, but we got an immediate response from Becky, telling us that the 4th was indeed, available. Becky, and her husband, Matt, went above and beyond, to give us our “SPECIAL” day. Leave it up to us, to try planning a wedding ceremony in between two hurricanes bearing down on the islands!! Fortunately, the first one went passed on Saturday. Sunday couldn’t have been more beautiful! Sunshine and a slight trade winds, made the evening ceremony beyond expectations! Becky was absolutely LOVELY to work with, and Matt took lots of photos with our phones. Just as the ceremony was about to be finalized, it started to rain. It couldn’t have turned out any better! We all were laughing and completely soaked by the time we made it back to our vehicles! We got plenty of photos with the sunshine, and with it clouding over, and then, in the rain! Even had to sign the wedding certificate in the back of the vehicle, it was raining so hard! I highly recommend “SIMPLE KONA BEACH WEDDINGS”, to make your Hawaiian wedding dream, a reality !!! THANK YOU, Becky and Matt!Sent on 08/08/2019
Simple Kona Beach Weddings's reply:You are so welcome!! It is a day to remember (and very fondly, I might add!), and I am so glad that we got to be a part of making your wedding (a long time coming) something special! Thinking of you and Kurt both and smiling ear to ear!

Simply Perfect Wedding
I could not have asked for a more perfect wedding day... Simple, stress-free, and FUN! Becky was very responsive from beginning to end. She answered every one of my questions and made sure all the intricacies during the ceremony were taken care of so we did not have to worry about set-up. If you want to enjoy a beach-style destination wedding, Becky Ringler is THE person you need to contact. Choosing Simple Kona Beach Weddings was the best decision I made this year, second to the choice of marrying the love of my life. ❤️Sent on 08/08/2019
Simple Kona Beach Weddings's reply:Tricia! You are so sweet, and reading this makes my heart sing! I am so glad that we were able to make your day all that you dreamed of and more! Sending you all the love and joy in the world!

Simple Kona beach Weddings
My fiance (now husband) wanted to run away and elope in Hawaii after the stress from planning a wedding. We did some research and found Becky at Simple Kona Beach Weddings and could not be happier that we did. Becky asked a few simple questions and then took care of everything. She completely took the stress out of planning a wedding and made our day incredible. Becky and her husband Matt were so fun to work with and we could not recommend them enough.Sent on 06/26/2019

Perfect beach wedding
Becky is a fantastic wedding officiator and planner!Sent on 08/26/2019
We were very pleased we chose to have her officiate our wedding on the Big Island.
First of all she really knows the best beaches and other locations to hold a perfect ceremony. We arrived and met at our chosen location and Becky walked around with us showing us advantages and disadvantages of beach spots. She thinks of things we wouldn't have. Angle of the sun in accordance with photography angles, noise from beach goers, view points for guests to easily watch us and comfortable place for us to stand.
She was flexible to work with and has a great personality with just the right amount of patience, fun, assertiveness and professionalism.
She was also an excellent communicator. We felt like we were in good hands long before getting to the island.
We chose a traditional sort of Hawaiian island ceremony which she did a super job describing what and why as we went through it. It made it that much more special.
For just a small fee extra we were able to hire her husband to use our phone and take many more pictures and video the ceremony. He too has a funny and outgoing personality and was a great addition to the ceremony.
In closing we definitely recommend Becky. You will be glad you chose her too!
Simple Kona Beach Weddings's reply:Thank you so much, Sanja! That means a lot, and I so appreciate your detailed review of your experience, and I am so glad that you chose me, too! Sending love and hugs to you and Travis!

Simple beach wedding with a unique and personalized touch
Becky, owner and operator of Simple Kona Beach Weddings, did an awesome job and made our wedding to a very special, beautiful and memorable event!Sent on 06/18/2019
We are still heavily smiling when we think about our big day and looking at the beautiful pictures at the stunning Kona beach. From the first contact on, later via calls and emails during the preparation phase and finally face-to-face in Kona, Becky was always very interested in our wishes and needs, had always very considerative recommendations and she was always relaxed, nice and excited to organize our wedding. Traveling from Europe, it was crucial for us that the wedding planner takes care of all items around our wedding. We wanted a simple beach wedding, but still it is a once in a lifetime event and should be something special. And this is exactly what Beckyś service stands for! In a very professional and well organized manner, Becky provided us with a real No-brainer package, we only needed to show up at the beach and smile. The whole ceremony was just awesome; Becky used well chosen, beautiful words, arranged amazing colorful flowers, perfectly made leis and prepared exactly the tropical flower bucket, we asked for. She advised a very talented and passionate photographer (Hannah Cooper). She further arranged a delicious picnic (thanks to Matt) and organized a very good and funny ukulele player. So, all we asked for was there, and everything was even better than we would have ever imagined. Becky and the whole team around Simple Kona Beach Weddings welcomed us in such a warm and friendly manner, that we felt like among friends, even though we traveled alone to Hawaii. Additionally, it is worthwhile to mention, that Becky provided several very good recommendations for restaurants, assisted us with the marriage license arrangements and via her network we could book some great activities. So as said, everything was just awesome and we can only highly recommend Simple Kona Beach Weddings to every couple, who is looking for a simple beach wedding with a unique and personalized touch.

We had the perfect wedding
The first thing I did when Ash and I got engaged was google and email a heap of wedding planners. When I read Becky’s reply I knew that we should work with her above all others. She was sincerely excited to work with us.Sent on 04/28/2019
We’re Australian, so we spent some time on Skype talking through everything. Any concerns we had about trusting a stranger on the other side of the world totally melted away.
Ash and I totally embraced the no brainer package- purely because we knew we could trust Becky.
I don’t say this lightly- but I wouldn’t change a single thing about our day. It was perfect.
Our vows were just perfect for us as was the Ceremony. Many of our guests commented that they loved the ceremony as well.
Our Lei’s and flowers were utterly stunning. I opted for a Haku as well, and it was absolutely beautiful.
We worked with Dawn as our photographer (organised by Becky) who is nothing short of incredible.
Becky (and Matt) stayed with us while we had photos with Dawn and took photos on their (and my) phone- we had about 400 photos sent to us after that had been taken on the phones.
Becky helped me navigate the Four Seasons to book the barefoot on the beach table. We chose this based on Becky’s suggestion- IT WAS INCREDIBLE. We had the executive chef of the Four Seasons as our private chef for the evening. Everyone was full of amazing food by the end of the night.
Becky is an absolute professional. Our paperwork had been submitted the night of our wedding (so we were officially official). She has an incredible sense for what will work. I seriously recommend trusting her to plan your wedding- she’s an absolutely excellent wedding planner and celebrant.
From the bottom of our hearts, Thank you Becky.
Simple Kona Beach Weddings's reply:You are SO welcome, Bree! Thank you for putting your trust in my hands. It was so much fun to help the two of you create a day you will remember forever, and it makes me SO happy to know it was all that you'd hoped for and more! Sending you and Ash big hugs and aloha, and a world of happiness to come!!

Our Perfect Day
So, it is a bit ironic that a “stranger” was such an important figure in one of the most important days in our lives. We took a risk based on online research and reviews and hired Becky to help with our wedding in Kona. We are glad we took a risk on this stranger; what an amazing person she turned out to be. We are so thankful to have found her. Becky was very responsive, thoughtful, helpful, and all around great throughout the entire process. On our wedding day we met Becky and her husband Matt in person. Again, she (in this case, they) didn’t disappoint. Becky did a wonderful job officiating our wedding and even stayed around afterwards while we were going through our photo session (we hired one of the photographers recommend by Becky) and took several pictures of us with her phone and shared them with us later on that day (over 100 pictures). Also, Matt used one of our phones to record the ceremony; the videos turned out great.Sent on 04/01/2019
Finally, as a same sex couple we couldn’t be happier with the way we were treated. We felt comfortable and welcomed. Becky and Matt (and Josh – the photographer) truly demonstrated happiness for us. So; if you are planning a wedding in the Big Island, I strongly recommend you work with Becky, she will help you to make your day unforgettable.
Becky and Matt - thank you, thank you, thank you!
Simple Kona Beach Weddings's reply:Alex, thank you so much for your beautiful words! I am so happy that we were able to make your day as special as you'd hoped and more!! Sending big hugs to you and Miguel both!

The only way to get married in Kona!
We were lucky enough to find Becky and Matt to coordinate our tiny wedding and they did a spectacular job. They exceeded every expectation we could have.Sent on 01/25/2019
We thought this ceremony would be awkward with just us and our son but it was so much fun. The spot they chose was perfectly remote and it felt like we were on our own private beach.
They did a beautiful job setting up the site with a heart make of flower petals and all of the traditional Hawaiian ceremony accompaniments.
I told Becky I was worried I would cry through the ceremony and she was just a delight. She kept it light and fun yet deeply meaningful.
Matt took about a thousand photos on our phones so we wouldn’t have to wait 6 weeks for the photographers final photos (photographer was great too).
Becky told me that she decided a few years ago to focus her life on Love and it’s clear that she’s doing her life’s work.
Simple Kona Beach Weddings's reply:Candice, thank you for sharing this with everyone, and I am so glad that we were able to make your day special. It was a special moment all around, and we were so happy to be there for you and Ken! Wishing you continued love and happiness together!

Our secret weapon to planning the best HI wedding => Becky!
Watch out Gal Gadot, I think Becky is the real wonder woman! The thought of planning a wedding stressed me out and I just wanted to elope but I didn't because I am more scared of my mom killing me if I did that. So Becky literally saved my life! I have no clue how to plan a regular party let alone a wedding celebration! From food to flowers to photographer to music to table/chair rentals, Becky knows the best people for the job! She did EVERYTHING! She was there literally from the start when we had nothing planned until the end of the party. Then even after the party, she and her husband were the first to share the best photos!Sent on 01/27/2019
Simple Kona Beach Weddings's reply:Jenny, you totally have me cracking up and blushing at the same time. The whole experience was a pleasure from start to finish on my end as well. You and Shane and your lovely family made the whole process easy and enjoyable. So happy we were able to make the experience stress-free and fun for all!! Sending continued joy for you and yours!

I totally recommend Becky! She was the best!
Working with Becky was truly amazing! She is professional and so easy to deal with. She responded so quickly to me whenever I had a question, even when she was sick or on vacation! She was so knowledgeable about the island and the people she has on her service list were wonderful as well. She made our day very special by providing a beautiful and unique ceremony! She did not leave any details out and her customer service skills are outstanding. I could not be happier with her services! I totally recommend her to anyone getting married in Kona.Sent on 01/14/2019
Simple Kona Beach Weddings's reply:Thank you so much, Sheri! Your feedback means so much, and I am so happy I was able to help you create the small wedding you were dreaming of (even though I was sick and on vacation during the planning portion!). It was a joy, and so were you and Pat. Sending hugs your way!
Marianne Cottingham · Married on 01/07/2019
Beyond our expectations
We chose Becky after reading reviews online. Let me assure you,she surpassed all our expectations and the ceremony was absolutely beautiful. We loved everything she spoke about and all the lovely touches that made our beach wedding so memorable. Our guests loved it and several of them came up to me to say what a lovely job Becky did! Her husband Matt was awesome and took great pictures with my phone! Becky was responsive, patient and used her experience to give us a better wedding than we expected. Our 7 year old son has been repeating some of the special things Becky said about the big island afterwards, and why it is such a special place to be married... That tells you how touching the ceremony was! If you want a stress free and beautiful wedding,not to mention great value, look no further!Sent on 01/08/2019
Simple Kona Beach Weddings's reply:Marianne, knowing that your son was repeating some of the things from the ceremony is the icing on the cake to what you have shared here. Thank you. It makes me so happy to know that we were able to exceed your expectations, and that your beach wedding is truly the happy moment you'd hoped for! Sending you and Lee continued happiness!
Casey Marquez · Married on 12/05/2018
Becky was amazing from start to finish. She responded quickly and she went above and beyond to make sure she was providing exactly what we wanted. The day of the wedding was exactly the same. She was kind and personable and truly cared about our day being perfect. After the wedding her and her husband even gave my family members a ride to the restaurant so we didn’t have to get a car. We also just received a Christmas card from her after our wedding. Would recommend her over and over again!!Sent on 12/16/2018

Excellent customer service and communication!
We can't say it enough... Thank you Becky for the amazing service and ceremony.Sent on 12/13/2018
Hopefully this helps the next couple who is looking to hire Becky and Simple Kona Bech Wedding... Three words... HIRE HER NOW!!! Becky was beyond amazing in helping us build our perfect ceremony. Her communication with us from the very first day all the way up to the day of our ceremony was on point. We really valued the full on communication, open dialogue and the utmost professionalism. She listened, and was very involved with helping us find our voice for the overall feel of our ceremony, gently guiding and helping us stay on task and on point. We didn't want the traditional ceremony, and wanted to really incorporate Hawaiian tradition with our own traditions. She was open to making this work, getting to know us and crafting a ceremony that was truly meant for us.
We were planning this from a far, and she was instrumental in helping us find the right vendors that fit our personalities and needs. And the florist she works with... HIRE HER TOO!!! Becky has an incredible relationship with, in our opinion, one of the most amazing florists on the island, and can help you coordinate and design your beautiful floral pieces.
Most importantly, I think we found a lifetime friend in Becky, and are so happy we connected and can call her our friend. She helped make our little ceremony magical and memorable. All of our guests are still talking about how meaningful, and beautiful her words and ceremony was.
THANK YOU BECKY!!!!!
Simple Kona Beach Weddings's reply:Heather, I am overwhelmed by your kind words; thank you so much for sharing your experience here! It was truly an honor and a joy to assist you and Mike with making your wedding all that you'd hoped it to be, and an extra bonus to gain two new friends in the process!
