FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

1. Is the same sex marriage legal in Hawaii?
YES. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie signed same-sex marriage into law November 13, 2013. Hawaii is the 15th state to legalize the same sex marriage so gay and lesbian couples have the same state rights as married partners. Apply for a marriage license online within 12 months prior to your wedding date, then pick it up within 30 days to the date at Hawaii State Department of Health 1250 Punchbowl Street in Honolulu Monday through Friday 8:00 am to 4:00 pm or Sheraton Waikiki at http://www.sheraton-waikiki.com/weddings/planyourwedding/requirements. Partners must appear in person with a picture ID. Please bring the license to your ceremony so we can sign it together. The license is valid for 30 days. After your ceremony, you will receive a temporary marriage certificate via email in 2 working days. It is valid for legal use till you receive a permanent marriage certificate from the state.

2. What kind of ceremony do you conduct?
Ceremony is more spiritual for the couple's love and blessings in nature in English and Hawaiian languages. Vows are non-religious, non-denominational. Please review spiritual vows. It takes 15 minutes for a ceremony, and up to 30 minutes for a photo session.

3. What is the best time to perform the ceremony?
late afternoon to sunset. A camera captures gentle and romantic colors. Mid day is too hot for you and too bright for a camera. Also, weekdays are highly recommended. On weekends and holidays, beaches are packed with tourists and locals.

4. If we cancel the reservation, will we get the money back?
If you cancel the reservation 30 days prior to the scheduled wedding date, we will refund your money (less $200 as cancellation and arrangement fee). Exclusive packages may require a higher cancellation fee. Please understand once we book the specific date and time for your wedding, we turn down the other reservations.

5. How much is the gratuity?
Gratuity is not included in the fees stated. Suggested $20 per staff will be appreciated.

6. Do you mail CD to home address?
Yes. Please add $10 for shipping and handling.

7. Do you arrange any other specific packages?
Yes, please inquire. We are here to serve you and help you make a commitment to the love you will cherish forever in beautiful Hawaii.
