Wedding Officiant Services
At A Oahu Location
❤️ I will provide up to one hour of pre wedding consultation by phone and/or email to answer your questions, find more about you as a couple and find out your ideas for the ceremony.
❤️ I will create a personalized script for your wedding ceremony that is inspired by Love and you, the couple.
❤️ You may write your own words of Love to say during the ring exchange portion of the ceremony or I can create something for you to say.
❤️ Popular island wedding traditions like a Lei Exchange, Ha Breath of Life, or Sand Unity ceremony can be incorporated into your wedding at no additional charge. You would provide the leis for the lei exchange or for the sand unity. I have wooden bowls you may use upon request if you want to incorporate a sand unity or you may provide your own.
❤️ You may choose any location anywhere on the island of Oahu. If you are unsure of your ceremony location or want to look at beaches once you arrive on Oahu you do not have to provide a location at the time of reserving your day and time. The ceremony location just needs to be provide 24 hours prior to the ceremony start time.
❤️ On the day of your wedding I will be available for up to one hour after the agreed upon meeting time to perform the ceremony.
❤️ On the day of your wedding, after the ceremony, I certify the marriage online with the State of Hawaii making a legal record of your marriage. The State will email you a few days after the wedding with a link to your downloadable marriage certificate which is a legal document that can be used for insurance and military housing.
❤️ I am happy to incorporate special requests or other wedding traditions into your ceremony to make it personal and meaningful for you. I can also incorporate a special theme you have selected for your wedding into the ceremony.

❤ Wedding Traditions and Unity Ceremonies
I do not charge anything additional if you would like to incorporate a lei exchange, sand unity ceremony or traditions into your ceremony. The most popular in Hawaii are the lei exchange, the sand unity ceremony, and Honi Honi/Ha Breath of Life ceremony. I have wooden bowls for the sand unity ceremony available for use at no charge. The wedding couple is responsible for providing leis or any other items used in any of the unity ceremonies they wish to incorporate. I can provide orchid leis for an additional fee.
There are hundreds of unity ceremonies and wedding traditions from different cultures that can be incorporated into a wedding or vow renewal ceremony. There is no right or wrong way to have your ceremony. Choose to incorporate what will be meaningful to both of you and make your ceremony special and specific to you as a couple.

Optional Add Ons
❤ Fresh Orchid Leis: You may request fresh single strung variegated purple/white dendrobium orchid leis to wear for your ceremony or to use for a lei exchange during the ceremony. These leis are the most popular leis given out in Hawaii and their beautiful color pops in photos. About 50 fresh purple with white orchid blooms are used to create each lei. These orchids are big in size creating a nice fluffy lei, are hearty so they wont wilt fast with the heat of the body and the sun, and are unscented which is good if you have allergies or are scent sensitive. $60 plus tax for two leis. Request a quote if you would like more than 2 leis, like if you would like to give leis to your wedding guests.
❤ Circle of Flowers is a tradition in Hawaii where the wedding couple has a circle of blooms mark the spot where they will exchange vows. The circle of flowers is symbolic of their never ending love for one another and their eternal pledge they commit to one another in the circle.
This couple had a circle of fresh orchids and fancy fresh leis.
❤ MY WEDDING SERVICES CIRCLE OF FLOWER OPTIONS
If you will be hiring me to officiate your wedding on Oahu I have two options for circle of flowers if you would like me to provide it for you:
FRESH ORCHIDS: A 10 foot garland of beautiful fresh purple with white dendrobium orchid blooms is a easy way to lay down the circle of flowers and it cleans up quickly after the ceremony. $120 plus tax.
LIFELIKE SILK MAILE WITH TUBEROSE RENTAL: Have a lifelike silk Maile garland with tuberose to mark your ceremony spot. For a use fee of $25 plus tax I will bring the garland, set it up, and pick it up after the ceremony.
This couple had fresh orchid leis and rented the lifelike silk maile with tuberose.
❤ Shower of Flowers with Dendrobium Orchids: After the ceremony rather than tossing rice guests toss dendrobium orchid blooms to celebrate the happy couple’s nuptials! You don’t need a lot of guests or a lot of blooms. In the photo below each guest tossed 2 orchid blooms and it creates an amazing photo of everyone celebrating! $30 plus tax for 70 loose orchid blooms.
This couple had a fresh orchid lei exchange, circle of orchid flowers and a shower of flowers.
Budget Photography Option
🤳If you will be hiring me to officiate your wedding or vow renewal I am happy to take a couple of photos with your phone camera at no charge. If you would like to have more than a couple of photos, I was a wedding photographer before I became an officiant and I offer an inexpensive wedding photo package where during the hour I am with you on your wedding day I will take photos using your phone camera before and after the ceremony. Since I am unable to take photos while I am officiating the ceremony I have a cell phone tripod that you may use to take video of the ceremony where you can take photos from the video later. The photo below was captured from one couple’s video taken on their phone during their ceremony. You have full ownership of all photos and videos and get to take them with you on your phone to share and keep.
$125 plus tax
Deposit To Secure Your Date and Time
❤ Deposit To Secure Date and Time
Once you have chosen a date and time for your ceremony a $50 non-refundable deposit is required to secure my services, Wedding Officiant Kim Crinella, for a specific date and time for your ceremony. Payment can be made by Venmo, CashApp, PayPal, Debit Card or Credit Card. This deposit is deducted from the balance which is due on the day of the ceremony and can be paid in cash, Venmo or CashApp. The deposit is not refundable if the date of the wedding is changed or cancelled.
❤ Pre-Wedding Consultation
One hour of pre-wedding consultation service in person, phone, and/or by email is included with the full service wedding officiant services. No ceremony weddings should not require a pre-wedding consultation, only wedding license instructions. Should you require additional consultation services exceeding the included 1 hour consultation, services will be billed at $75 per hour and any portion of.
❤ Attendance At Wedding Rehearsal
If you will be having a wedding party with a best man, maid of honor, groomsmen and bridesmaids then you should have a rehearsal with the wedding party to practice how you want them to walk in, where to stand during the ceremony, if you want them to do anything during the ceremony, and how you want them to walk out after the ceremony. It is not necessary to have the Wedding Officiant at the rehearsal, you can actually use a stand in or make believe they are standing there. During the actual ceremony I will tell the wedding couple what they need to do (hold hands, look at each other, put a lei on the other, put the ring on the other) so the wedding couple doesn’t need to practice. Should you wish that I attend your rehearsal or would like me to run the rehearsal giving instructions to the wedding party my rate depends on the location of the rehearsal and starts at $180 for one hour.
❤ Officiant’s After Hour Fee
If you require me to be present at the ceremony location for longer than an hour after the agreed upon arrival time, like if there is a late start or if you would like me to attend a Rehearsal and/or Reception, there is a fee of $100 per hour billed in one hour increments. On the day of the ceremony if the wedding is delayed and the couple requires I stay longer than the included hour, $100 per hour billed in one hour increments will be due in cash, CashApp, or Venmo at the time of the wedding or payable by invoice online by credit card once I return from the wedding and must be paid before I will certify the wedding with the State of Hawaii to make the marriage legal. I am required to certify a marriage within 3 days of officiating to make it legal.
