We had our destination wedding at Turtle Bay. Living in another city is a bit nerve wracking as you never know what to expect. I must say we are so blessed to have Kalehua as our officiant! He was very professional over the phone. It was even more of a pleasure to meet him in person and you feel like family after leaving. Very organized, thorough and comforting. He gives a sense of ease and the ceremony was perfect. The ceremony was short and incorporates traditional Hawaiian culture. Mahalo!

We had our wedding on May 18 on Waimanalo Beach and it was the most wonderful day, made incredibly special by Kalehua's chants, blessings and wonderful aloha that he brought to the ceremony. A beautiful surprise was adding our children to the ceremony with the mixing of the sand... It touched all of us so much and our guests were talking about the ceremony for days after... so many said it was their favorite moment of the trip to Hawaii.
It was everything a wedding could be and I can't recommend him enough for making it the most memorable day of our lives. Thank you Kalehua!
Thank you so much for being such a special presence on our special day.

Hi Eileen and Kalehua,
Thank you so much for making our wedding so special. The guests loved the ceremony, everyone walked away feeling and experiencing the hawaiian culture that I love.
We received the docs with our keepsake and temporary certificate.
It was a dream come true to meet you both. We feel a connection, it was meant to be. Thank u for sharing the joy of life with us.
Will send you photos once I receive them.
Also, apologies for the late start. I know kalehua had another appointment. Hope all went ok!!

We wanted to let you know that we received the wedding DVD and we are very pleased with the final product overall. Please convey our appreciation to Stuart and Co. for doing a great job! It will be nice to share this with a few family members that come to visit us after the baby is born (any time now).

Darren and I would like to extend our heartfelt thanks for the wonderful Hawaiian wedding ceremony you performed for us yesterday. Everyone loved the ceremony including the Hawaiian traditions and we appreciated your sincere delivery, Kalehua. I was doing my best to stay in the moment as it was an emotional ceremony as you could see! We can't wait to watch it back on video and see the photos too.
Eileen, thank you once again for the beautiful wreath, the pen and the way you personalised the reading cards. Every little touch means a lot! I am sorry for being caught up in the moment and not coming over to thank you personally and give you a hug too! So I am sending one to you now :-)
We look forward to continuing our association together as 'family' like Kalehua said in our ceremony. I highly recommend Weddings by Kalehua for a personal and traditional Hawaiian wedding ceremony!

Dear Kalehua and Eileen,
Thank you so very much for being a part of our wedding day! We loved having you officiate our ceremony. It was perfect and we really enjoyed it – as did our guests! We also loved the special music you added to our day at Moli’i Gardens. Thanks so much.
Carrie and Anthony
Aloha! We got our wedding video today and Brent and I just wanted to say thank you again to you, your son and Eileen for everything! We loved the video and it was so fun to relive our special day!
Aloha Kalehua and Eileen,
Thank you so much for coming over and blessing our new home. We both felt at peace and comfortable.
I hope this email finds you well! KC and I just wanted to send another quick note to Thank you for officiating our Wedding back in September. We received numerous comments, feedback, and compliments from our friends and family members that the ceremony was just perfect, and the words that you said were so simple, yet meaningful and powerful. We are so happy to have had you as a part of our big day! The ceremony was perfect, you made us both feel very comfortable and we just would not have wanted it any other way!
Rachel and KC
Hello Kalehua and Eileen,
Hope all of you are doing well. We have attached a few pictures. Enjoy!
Thanks again for being a part of our special day and making it such a memorable one. Until we meet again. Take good care.

I was so happy with Kalehua's services. We met with him the day before the wedding. He went over the whole ceremony and answered a lot of our questions. We were looking for a more traditional Hawaiian ceremony and he delivered. It was not only our wedding but my in-laws anniversary and he renewed their vows after our ceremony impromptu. I would definitely recommend Kalehua.
Our wedding ceremony performed by Kalehua was amazing. We had no idea that his ceremony was so traditional, cultural, spiritual and most of all beautiful. When I first contacted Kalehua I had mentioned that I was originally from Oahu and had been living in Seattle for the past 15 years and wanted to have a wedding ceremony on the beach, barefooted with Hawaiian traditions. Kalehua’s ceremony was so beautiful that my family was in “ah” and had mentioned that this was the most beautiful wedding they have ever witnessed.
The best moments were when each of us took a pinch of sand and mixed it together with his family which created ONE family. We also loved the part where we went down to the ocean and presented the gift of Hawaiian ti leaf to our passing relatives.
We also had purchased our wedding ceremony DVD. We had a wedding reception and enjoyed showing it to our mainland friends. They also were in “AH”. They loved everything about our wedding ceremony. I truly encourage everyone to invest in Kalehua’s DVD.
We so much appreciate Kalehua and his assistant with helping us have a beautiful wedding, Mahalo Nui!
Joeangel and Sharon Martinez
Thanks again for the beautiful ceremony. Thanks again also for accommodating us and working within our budget for the video, otherwise we would not have been able to afford it. You are a wonderful person and spiritualist. Take care.
Melissa and Gustavo
Marcos and I cannot talk about our time in Hawaii without talking about God's hands when HE put you two in our way. What an incredible story we can tell everyone! Thank you very much for everything that you did for us while we were there. We don't have words to thank you enough. Mahalo for the amazing time that we had together...and for the WONDERFUL ceremony just the way that we were dreaming...God is so great...we can't thank Him enough for the best time in our lives that we had over there in Hawaii...you are for sure part of these wonderful memories! You are in our hearts forever! Please, keep in touch!
MAHALO MAHALO MAHALO!!!
Marcos Silva and Maira Negri-Silva
We just wanted to formally thank you again for everything you did to make the ceremony so special and heartfelt! Our guests really enjoyed learning about the Hawaiian culture and customs, as did we. We couldn’t have asked for a better Kahu, and we are proud and honored to call ourselves a part of the Hawaiian family. Thank you again and warm aloha!

Aloha Kahu Kalehua,
We wanted to thank you for the beautiful ceremony you performed for us on Sunset Beach. We are honored by your blessings. The ceremony was more than we had expected. Your kind and wise words touched us deeply and will stay with us forever.
Mahalo nui loan a ho’olaule’a me la kaua. Me ka ‘oia’i’o,
Karin and Sandy
We have received many comments on the wedding, food and venue, but none have compared to the glowing comments made on your wise and gentle words. What a wonderful gift you gave to us one and all. Somehow, we all left feeling a little more blessed because of your grace and mindfulness. Thank you for guiding us through the passageway and for sharing your great spirit of aloha with us on my daughter's wedding day.
Aloha Kalehua and Eileen,
Mahalo!!!!! We just received the DVD. It was wonderful. Now I know who to call when I want the job done right!!!! Once again you and the people you work with have a gift of making a special moment magical. God bless you and your crew for helping Brian and I to be able to share that special gift that Kahu Kalehua brought to our ceremony making this a day to remember for as long as we live. After watching the DVD and really being able to re-live the words that were said I know that our family and friends here in the mainland will be moved just as much as those that were actually there. Hearing Kalehua's voice was impressive!!! I know our wedding was blessed from the heavens. WOW!!! Words can not say everything I am feeling. We will be back in 2012 and I am hoping we can see you and Kalehua. Once again, mahalo for a memory of a lifetime that will be shared with a lot of people up here.
Mahalo and A Hui Hou,
Thank you as well for meeting with us. Any way you would like to tailor the ceremony is just fine with us. Your presentation was very impressive!
Thank you very much Kalehua and Eileen for all the attention and care! All the Minerbis are very happy and grateful.
mahalo nui - molte grazie,
Thank you for being our Kahu at our wedding. We are so blessed!
Dearest Eileen and Kalehua,
Our ceremony was absolutely wonderful. We really appreciate all you have done for us and making us feel like family. Both of you will be in our prayers and always a part of us. We can't thank you enough for making everything seem so perfect. The whole ceremony was beautiful.
Thank you for being a part of our special day. We love you.
