"The ceremony was so beautiful, it touched my heart."
M. & M. Sophy
Aloha, e komo mai, Welcome, my name is Pastor Ron Taylor. Since 2008, I have performed over 10,000 weddings, and would love to be your Hawaii wedding minister. The couples I married say that I am gentle and peaceful, which made their wedding a romantic and intimate experience. I pour out my heart and soul into each wedding that I perform, making sure that you feel special, and especially to create wonderful memories for you, that will last a life time.....Aloha
Planning a romantic wedding in Hawaii is very easy and reasonably priced. Many people assume that a wedding on the island of Oahu is expensive. Although it can be, depending on what your dream wedding looks like, it is actually a great place for those that are looking for a affordable ceremony.
I do not charge a fee, but do accept honorariums(donation) usually between $125-$175.
I currently live on three different islands, home base is Oahu, and pastor a church on Molokai and Lanai.
As your Pastor, Minister, or also called Officiant, I will gladly assist you to make your wedding dreams come true.

What a beautiful ceremony on a beautiful beach with mountains in the background. Ron, our minister has given us an unforgettable experience. His lovely wife Vanessa and his equally lovely daughter Bethia took pictures of the wedding. They used to make us laugh again and again. It was like we had known each other for a very long time. We say thank you very much for this great wedding package . Sonja B.
I am so grateful that we came across Pastor Ron and his family. They truly exceeded our expectations and gave us a real dream wedding! It was more beautiful than I could have imagined. And the photos are unbelievable, all of our friends and family upon seeing our photos say that our wedding looked like a dream! His wife Vanessa is an amazing photographer, and their daughter Bethia also has a true talent in photography. They both worked together to get the best and most beautiful shots of our wedding! You will have the most stress free, affordable, and perfect wedding! Alexis G.
I have no words enough to thank Rev. Ron for the Vow Renewal Ceremony and all the efforts and commitment put to make it perfect as it was. I’m an Italian husband, and for our tenth honeymoon anniversary I wanted to make my wife’s dream come true: a Vow Renewal on the beach at sunset. Coming from Italy I was totally unaware about that, so I begun to search for the best package that I hope will fit. I became crazy, read a dozen of Hawaii wedding sites, but none point out about the meaning of the ceremony than the beauty of the flowers and the decorations. When I found Rev. Ron’s website, I had positive vibrations, and begun an email exchange with a lot of question. Ron was helpful, caring, patient and always comprehensive, explaining all the aspects of the ceremony, and giving a lot suggestion. I decided to entrust him for every aspect of the wedding, because I was exactly on the opposite side of the world. We agreed for the appointment at Maili beach at 5 PM, with my wife totally unaware about the Ceremony and coming from the beach. A total surprise! In no time Vanessa helped my wife to become a wonderful bride, with a wondrous Haku and a stunning bouquet. The ceremony itself was really touching, and was really beautiful to pronounce the whole formula looking the beloved in her eyes. We was surprised about all the time and efforts that Ron, Vanessa and Bethia puts after the ceremony to take the photos with professional skill and passionate eyes. Vanessa was wonderful, hilarious, funny and make ourselves truly free to express our love. It was really fun! We felt really amongst friends than with a skilled wedding team. The pictures are simply amazing, all our friends and parents was blown away! This will be a keepsake not for this vacation, but for a lifetime. Grazie mille: Giuseppe B.
Pastor Ron's calm, assuring demeanor, his beautiful Hawaiian and the care he puts into his preparation and service made our day so very special. Vanessa's pictures are wonderful, she has quite the eye and her pose suggestions made for a few of the most memorable photos in our collection. From my wife's first email, she felt cared for, her questions were quickly and courteously addressed. Pastor Ron's love of his marriage ministry, his gracious warmth and gentle ways will make you feel relaxed and enable you to live in the moment as you marry the one your heart cannot be without.

Thank you Pastor Taylor for an incredible wedding ceremony! And thank you Vanessa for the wonderful wedding photos. We are so fortunate and very happy we found you. We highly recommend you (10 stars!!) for how you handled the pre-marriage preparations, helping us locate Sandy Beach for the ceremony and for faithfully answering all of our emails, questions and concerns. At the time of preparations at the beach you made it very easy to make the ceremony happen! The wedding ceremony which included Christian vows and Hawaiian prayers was very touching and it is something we will never forget. We can't thank Pastor Ron and his wife Vanessa enough for making our wedding day absolutely perfect and amazing! They are truly a warm, kind hearted couple that will give you beautiful memories to last a lifetime! Thank you! Kirby and Debbie
We are still floating on the joy of our recent Wedding Vow Renewal and photo session with Pastor Ron and Vanessa Taylor! It was such a beautiful day and made so personal and wonderful by the presence of our friends the Taylor's. Ron has such a quiet, Godly spirit about him and he made the ceremony so special for both my husband and me and our two boys. Vanessa and her daughter Bethia's handiwork with the photography and props have made memories to truly last a lifetime. We highly recommend this family team if you're looking for a professional, personalized and all-around wonderful blessing to be added to your keepsake memories. Rachel T.
My husband and I had the great pleasure of having Pastor Ron Taylor officiate our Traditional Christian Wedding by the beach last March. We're both from out of state and was just in Hawaii for 25 days. We wanted the wedding a simple and intimate celebration with family and close friends. Pastor Ron made the wedding planning easier for us through his prompt reply via email and text message even before we flew in the Island for the wedding. He is very accommodating and professional. The ceremony was solemn and beautiful! His wife, Vanessa did an amazing job too, capturing our memorable moments during the ceremony and after. And making the ceremony even more romantic was Pastor Ron's friend, Beejay serenading us with his ukulele and beautiful voice! We highly recommend Pastor Ron! Queency U.
Ron Taylor was the minister for our North Shore wedding on Oahu in early April. His wife covered both the photography and flowers. Although I assume they do a lot of these, they seemed to be genuinely, personally invested in the outcome and making it special. Ron showed up more than 30min before the ceremony and went over every aspect of the service with the bride and myself. The service felt emotional and spiritual - plus, the leis and bridal bouquet were beautiful. But, the biggest surprise may have been the photography. We were blown away at the quality given that it was such an economical price. Mainland wedding photographers charge 4x for similar results. We would give them six stars if we could! James J.
Pastor Ron and wife Vanessa went over and above! Mahalo! Before the ceremony Pastor Ron was very helpful in the marriage license process, and also with choosing a wedding location. On the day of the ceremony they kept in communication with us, and made sure we had everything we needed. Pastor Ron and Vanessa arrived early to our location and ready to go. There was no rush at any point. We ordered 4 different lei’s handmade by wife Vanessa. They were so fresh and beautiful. The smell of the tuberose is pure bliss. The leis were so fresh we wore them to breakfast the next morning, and even without refridgeration they held up beautifully. At breakfast we got a compliment on the leis from a local. It is not a common lei, it is special made by Pastor Ron’s family. We highly reccommend ordering leis from them. They are VERY well priced, and we were given discounts along the way for everything without asking. Their spirit of Aloha shines! We also HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend the photography services. The photography was amazing. When you order pictures from Pastor Ron you get 2 professional photographers for the price of one. Vanessa and Pastor Ron work together with 2 cameras to get the best shots possible for your day. We are not photogenic people, but Vanessa and Ron made us feel so at ease, and also made us look so good! They were VERY generous with their time. We had no idea how to pose, but they use their experience to coordinate beautiful shots. They have an exceptional eye! Vanessa was tumbling and getting in the sand, she was doing anything to get a great picture. They also have a lot of professional equipment to get very high quality pictures. The photos were edited and ready the next day! Also Pastor Ron filed our marriage right away that night so we had no wait. We feel so blessed to have found Pastor Ron and Vanessa. And their love for each other and team work is a great example to have for a new couple! God bless you Pastor Ron and Vanessa. Mahalo!!!!! Erika & Noah W.
