Japanese/English Bilingual Wedding
Every year thousands of couples from Japan come to Oahu for their romantic wedding.
The most common reason for getting married in Hawaii is because of the natural beauty, and also because it is very affordable when compared to the wedding prices in Japan.
I have performed thousands of weddings for clients from Japan, and also for Americans that marry Japanese citizens.
Living in Japan for fifteen years has helped me to learn the language.
It is such a blessing for me to be a Japanese speaking minister.
So what does a bilingual wedding look like? The format is pretty much the same as my English wedding, except that the Bible reading, vows, and ring exchange is in Japanese for the Japanese speaking bride/groom.
I also have weddings that is completely in the Japanese language.
The cost for the wedding is $150 + $40 Japanese language fee.

We live in Japan and wanted to get married in the US. When we saw Ron's site and sent in our inquiry, he promptly responded and was sensitive to our needs. Ron even offered to do the ceremony in English and Japanese (and Hawaiian too) upon learning that I was Japanese and my husband was American. When Ron and his photographer wife Vanessa came to the venue, their experience and professionalism were immediately on display making us comfortable with their presence. Ours was a simple wedding with a few friends, yet Ron and Vanessa were able to make it even more memorable by involving everyone there. The photographs we later received showed just how relaxed we were due to Vanessa's bubbly personality. Thank you Ron and Vanessa for a wonderful ceremony. We highly recommend Ron and Vanessa to couples planning their wedding in Hawaii. Toshiko T.
We are very happy and lucky to come across this sight and had a great time with Mr. Taylor and his family. He speaks fluent Japanese to assist us and his wife Vanessa and Bethia (daughter) were really good camerawomen. We really enjoyed the ceremony and talking with them. We received photos After getting back to Japan, and we are very happy to get such marvelous and fantastic photos we have ever had. Price was incredibly cheap and overall we felt their lovely and warm personality. Mitsuru Y.
I can't say enough good things about my experience with Pastor Ron Taylor and his services. His ceremony was superb; even though I have been legally married for four years to my husband, his words during the ceremony moved me to tear up. More importantly, he has a lovely and kind personality that makes him easy to work and communicate with. Since I live in Japan, I could only communicate by email, but his response time was prompt. Moreover, although I didn't order the photography service, his wife still took some photos. And I have to say they are beautiful. I would highly recommend ordering the photography as well along with the leis she makes. Lastly, I ordered the ukulele musician to play at our wedding since we had an outdoor ceremony, and I was very happy with his performance. He not only played but sang; it was much better than having recorded music or silence. All in all, everyone was nice and made me feel special on my wedding day. Alaina O.
Pastor Ron was very professional and his ability to perform the ceremony in both English and Japanese was above and beyond expectation. We’d definitely recommend a Pastor Ron in a heartbeat. You can’t go wrong with his wedding package to include a photographer and a musician. Desiree H.
