What People Say

“Dear Rev. David and Karen. i want to take a moment to thank you both so very much for helping us on our special day! I didn't get the time with everything going on to thank you at the park yesterday. The vows we recited were absolutely beautiful, something Carlos and I wanted to say but couldn't put into words. Almost as if you could read our thoughts. Again thank you for the bottom of my heart for making it a truly a memorable day for us! With lots of love”

“Dear Reverend David Tasaka, We are truly grateful to you for officiating our wedding. We know it was such a last minute request, but you pulled through for us to make this day special. Thank you again for your warmth & aloha!.”

"Me and my wife got married on August 2021. We had Mr. David Tasaka as our officiant and we had Ms. Karen n as our photographer. Our day couldn't have been more perfect. Both of them were very accommodating and understanding. Most of our guests arrived late for the ceremony but they were kind enough to wait so that they could be there for the ceremony. They even let my wife choose a spot on the beach where the ceremony was going to bel held. Also the photo session felt endless (in a good way!). Karen took a lot of our photos from different spots of the beach and even let our guests have their own photos taken each. All in all we couldn't ask for more from them. They have been wonderful in making our special day feel even more special. Out trip to Hawaii started of in a good note because of them. Thank you so much Mr. Tasaka and Ms. Renard. I wish you both more success. I would definitely reccommend you to future couple who are looking to get married in Hawaii."

“Reverend David and Karen helped to put together the perfect simple ceremony we were looking of. We loved the readings that Reverend David did and the blessing, and Karen's kind guidance to remember that it's about us. They were kind, sweet, helpful, considerate, professional, and had great energy, and we are so thankful for their assistance and presence. I would highly recommend Hawaiian Creative Weddings to anyone looking to get married on island”

“We had Mr. David Tasaka officiate our wedding this past February. We did not have any rehearsal but it was ok as he guided us. He was the highlight of our ceremony I must say. His words were so touching and our wedding vows that he wrote was beautiful. Also his voice was very calming and soothing. Thank you so much Mr. Tasaka! So glad you were our officiant.”
“Wally and I were married on January 10, 2014. Rev. David Tasaka officiated our ceremony and Karen Renard was our photographer. The help they gave us starting with information on the marriage license and where we should take our vows made our day go smoothly. We were both nervous and Karen made us feel at ease so that our photographs were just beautiful. I love looking at our wedding CD.”

"The situation: Six weeks before our big day, our friend told us they were unable to perform our wedding. OMG! Then a fellow wedding officiant recommended Reverend David Tasaka to us. He definitely saved our wedding ceremony! I hastily emailed David to ask if he was available to officiate our ceremony. Luckily, he was free. His wife Karen was so efficient at scheduling our ceremony, as well as setting up a meeting and also having David at our rehearsal (which we paid additional for). Both of them were so organized and always responded so quickly to my emails. Payment was easy, as the invoice was sent via Square.
We met with David to see if he would be a good fit to officiate our wedding. He was so considerate and sent us a picture via email so we would know who to look out for when we met. His demeanor is so calm, and his positive energy calmed down this stressed-out bride-to-be! He is so easy to talk to, and we had a great conversation sharing how my fiancée (now husband) and I met (via match.com). I shared with him that it was my late mother’s idea to look for a mate online, and David had the great idea that I share that during the ceremony! It was a perfect way to incorporate her memory into our big day. On their website hawaiiancreativeweddings.com… there are packages, details about both David and Kare, and a list of beautiful beach sites that enjoy performing ceremonies at. There honestly isn’t anything that I’d change about my wedding ceremony (even though it involved me “ugly crying” haha), and this is thanks to Rev. David! It flowed so smoothly and turned out even better than expected.”
"Dearest David. Thank you for making our day special. Also thank you for having such a calming presence which helped my nerves!! You are truly wonderful at what you do. Much respect and love,”

“We wanted to renew our wedding vows in Hawaii. With Karen and David’s help we were able to plan the perfect ceremony on our wedding anniversary. We never thought the pictures would turn out so amazing. We posted them on Facebook and our friends commented things like stunning, gorgeous, etc. Not only did we get a beautiful ceremony, including a traditional Hawaiian rite, but also the most beautiful pictures we have ever had taken together. They also made the photo shoot so much fun! We are so grateful to Hawaiian Creative Weddings for the memorable moments on Magic Island and the stunning pictures we will cherish forever. We highly recommend them to any couple who may be looking to have a gorgeous and fun wedding or other type of ceremony in Hawaii! These folks are fantastic! Thank you Karen and David. Eternally grateful,
Lu and Dave
“Working with the team at Hawaiian Creative Weddings was great. We planned out wedding in just 6 weeks and I’m so grateful they were available. There was initially a slight miscommunication about the exact location the day of and I was a bit worried on the phone, but after meeting them we were set up they were extremely kind, professional, and made our special day beyond perfect. We got the Hawaiian package with music and photos. We love the conch blowing, lei exchange. Rev. David gave us a touching ceremony, and the music was that extra beautiful cherry on top and it made our attendees cry. The photos were beautiful and I received them just a few days after. I would 100% recommend them and loved everything about our wedding day. You won’t be disappointed. Thanks again!”

“Good Morning Rev. David, Jared and I would like to take the time to thank you for being a part of our special day. We definitely believe that you helped us to create a beautiful ceremony and are so happy that we chose you to be our officiant. We both felt very comfortable with you as if we knew you before the ceremony. We also had many compliments on how touching your words were and how it was on point. We are so thankful that you were able to unite us as one. May your days be blessed with lots of joy. Thank you again for all that you do. Beautiful and the vows were perfect.”
“Rev. David was the officiant for our wedding (non-denominational) and he was great. We’re not the creative types, so we used the vows that he had and they were perfect, really focusing on the choice we were making to spend the rest of our lives toegether and the commitment we were making to each other. I highly recommend him!”
Laura K.

We had invited a priest to do a blessing and also planned to take a group photo with all the guests after the ceremony. Dave was able to transition into every thing so smoothlyl Thank you, David!”

“Mahalo to Rev David and Karen for an amazing ceremony! He was so sweet even though we started much later than planned. I’m not one to usually write reviews, mostly because I don’t know what to say but I know we would definitely recommend this company to our friends & family.”
