As Pastor John explains, Hawaii is an exceedingly popular wedding destination. In 2019, Hawaii’s marriage licensing statistics claimed the islands held over 21,000 weddings. With the latest announcement, the pastor brings his extensive officiating experience to Phoenix and the surrounding communities.

He has performed non-religious ceremonies, vow renewals, traditional Christian weddings, as well as Japanese, Hawaiian-themed, and Catholic styled ceremonies.
