    Paid performer vs. True Pastor
    Pastor Paul was extremely personable and very comfortable to be around. Friendly, charismatic and professional, he seems like a man open minded and sincere. To me, that made him a perfect choice for Dan and myself as the officiant. He was easy going and showed no sign of being rushed, despite our last minute change of venue (Due to weather and the fact that he also had another wedding after ours to officiate!) Would highly recommend him.

    Thumbtack app needs work
    Pastor replied quickly to ask me what kind of notary I needed. However, after I replied I did not receive a message indicating whether he can or cannot help with my request. Perhaps the Thanksgiving Holiday got in the way. In any case,Thumbtack is not a very user friendly platform as well. I do not prefer using Thumbtack...Please keep beta testing and improving yourselves. Good luck.

    Aloha Eric, I replied as fast as possible, within minutes, asking about the document. I didn't see a reply from you and guessed you found someone else since Thumbtack is very competitive and that's happened to me many times, and that's okay as long as you, the customer, is happy. I'm happy. Then I just saw your 3-star :( review as the only next communication from you? I dove into my Thumbtack email notifications, messages everywhere until I found a reply from you I was not notified about and just replied offering to come to you at a moment's notice and providing my direct personal Cell Phone number so we don't have the same error again. I feel as though my review score and I am taking one for the team for a technical problem that seems to be occurred. I'm here for your Eric, my cell is 808-721-7777 (if I'm allowed to put this here?) and standing by to assist and praying that you'll reconsider my 3 to a five star if I earn it... and I will. I'm here for your, please call or text...and we'll be at your requested address to notarize at your whim. Live Aloha, Paul

    Pastor Paul was awesome. He made everyone feel very comfortable with the entire process. He came for the rehearsal and walked everyone through the steps of the ceremony. He explained what would take place and how everything would be. Extremely thorough. He kept in contact with me and answered every question I had. We had some unforeseen circumstances with traffic and he kept me posted on exactly where he was. I highly recommend him for anyone who is looking for a very down to earth pastor that has a love for love and u Irving people. He is truly awesome!!!! Thank you Pastor Paul, you made our day one that we will truly never forget!

    Paul showed up 30 minutes late for our wedding planning luncheon and showed up for the wedding 10 minutes after the starting time. His eyes were bloodshot, he stumbled over his words and lost his place in the ceremony twice.

    Mr Phillips, Thanks for hiring us, and thanks for your honest feedback. I’m sorry I was running late that day. I’ll be sure to call ahead or text in the future when I’m running behind schedule for other services. We sincerely hope and pray you and your beautiful bride are happy in your marriage! I’m so sorry to hear that you weren’t happy with your services. After learning so much about you and your exemplary relationship; along with the personal hardships you overcame to become husband and wife...it is so beautiful and touching to me, that I did tear up and was overwhelmed more than once on the way and during your beautiful service you and your Ohana coordinated...I'm sorry for that unprofessional, yet human reaction. I'm sorry that effected my eyes...not to mention that amazing ray of sunlight that broke through at the perfect moment during the my reciting your vows...that was perfect timing. I’ll be sure to consider that on my next project. Since the traffic in Hawaii is world famous for being so unpredictable with travel time sometime lasting for longer than we’d like or plan for (or can expect due to unforeseen circumstances), but I appreciate your feedback on how we can improve. Thanks again for hiring us. May God Bless you and guide you on your path. Live Aloha, Pastor Paul and his Ohana

    Paul was outgoing, positive, and accommodating. Even with only a few days notice, he was able to help out. We were very lucky to have had someone like him do our wedding on the beach. Recommend to anyone!
  • Izumi T. May 10, 2015
    Paul gave a great performance to our wedding celemeny. He tried to make me relax and read wedding vows slowly for me who couldn't hear English well. So I could attend the ceremony with my confidence. And his happiness with his wife and baby makes us happy. Thank you.

    Paul Klink is a professional and does a great job, he did our wedding and was on time and even made time the day before to meet us to do a walk thru so everyone knew how things was going to go the very next day. Thanks again Paul for the excellent and professional service you provided!
  • Lucinda Y. May 3, 2015
    Paul Klink is one of those people who are so giving and kind. Paul is a person who my wife and I call friend. He also officiated our wedding so he's now part of our family, our ohana. If you don't know Paul, you are missing out on one of those rare friendships in life.

    We had a delightful marriage ceremony thanks, in a large part to Paul. He gave it just the right touch! Mahalo, Paul.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Not complicated at all, just a love offering. I do share that usual offerings are between 150 and 500 on Oahu and approx 1000 on neighbor islands, it always works out. It's a natural sliding scale.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Confirm details, accommodate all requests, assist in all possible steps be 100% responsible to make sure everything goes perfect.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Yes, I'm always searching new locations, taking continued education, learning new languages for services and always offer to wear what ever color that matches the theme when required. I undergo continuing education and certifications as well as recertification regularly.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
As an alter boy when I was a child, I assisted in countless weddings and love watching two souls become infinite.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Marry couples on the beach, or where ever their hearts desire.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Conducted a stunningly beautiful wedding on Waimanalo Bay Beach Park! WOW! It truly was perfect!!! You can see the photo with the Palm Arch! Another wedding I conducted while in flight in a plane that only held four.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Check the Department of Health website and be sure they're both experienced as well as licensed. I've heard the horror stories of couple who thought they were married but were not legally married. I've conducted many ceremonies and my couples know that we all strived to make that day their perfect day.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
That I am very sincere in my wish to make their special day perfect.
