    Unforgettable....Beautiful and Perfect!
    Angela performed a perfect wedding ceremony for us at the Hale Koa Luau Gardens, on Saturday 8 October 2016. We couldn’t have asked for anything better! When we first met Angela, she built a strong rapport with Casey and I… she wanted to get know us; our life, our work, our family, our story, how we met…. and from all that information, she expertly weaved everything into the ceremony, making it very personal for all of us. It was like having a very close friend perform this sacred and meaningful ceremony on this special day. Angela was very responsive to our requests, listening and helping us develop a beautiful wedding ceremony outline. We didn’t have the traditional grooms and bridesmaids, instead we had our children and Casey’s niece as our wedding party. Angela suggested we perform the Hawaiian Blessing that involved our children, which was so appropriate for our situation and for our family. This blessing involved taking a bowl with blessed water, which was held by Dennis (the handsome Groom) and bowl of salt which was held by Casey (the beautiful and gorgeous Bride). During the blessing ceremony, our children Kyle, David, Luke, Ha’o, Kawai, Keahi, and Mellissa each took a pinch of the salt and sprinkled the salt into the water. This is essentially a blended family becoming one! All of this wouldn’t have been possible, if not for Angela’s attention to detail, her warm interpersonal skills and her ability to tailor our wedding ceremony into something perfect and unforgettable! Mahalo nui loa Angela!

    Angela was awesome! We met her a few weeks before the wedding to go over everything and she was so informative and comforting seeing that we've never been married before and had NO IDEA what the ceremony was supposed to look like. She offered support leading up to the wedding and even suggested a licensed agent to help us with our marriage license at OUR CONVENIENCE. At the rehearsal she made a great impression on our family and friends and fit right in. During the ceremony she it was so comforting to have her as our officiant. Her person is very calming so it was great being able to feed off of that during the most anxious, exciting and happy moment in our lives. Angela is seriously GREAT and I would definitely recommend her to ANYONE (kama'aina or visitors) to have her as their officiant.

    Angela is awesome!!! We planned our wedding in Hawaii from Indiana and Angela was a blessing. She helped us find our photographer/hair and makeup person (Gigi). She talked to us over the phone answering all our questions, met with us at our hotel the night we arrived and made sure everything was in order. She was so inviting and and truly made our ceremony ours. She put personal touches and allowed us to make the ceremony as formal or informal as desired. She offered to help out with any last minute details and basically made us feel right at ease. She had a person from the licensing (Shirley) meet with us in the evening so we did not have to spend our time in Hawaii standing in line completing paperwork. She is so fantastic!!! Angela also took some personal pictures at our wedding and sent them to us. What a treat!! We can't thank her enough!!!

    Communication with Angela was phenomenal. She was extremely accommodating and answered all of my questions. She is very professional and offered her assistance continually. Her connections make the process very comfortable and easy, especially when we needed to get our license. On the day of the ceremony, Angela and her husband were exceptional! When we met, it was as if we had been friends with her and her husband for a long time. I highly recommend her! You won't be disappointed.

    We were so lucky to find Angela. Our ceremony was very short notice, and we had little idea of what to do. Angela made every step very easy, she even set us up with her friend to get our license after hours. She is the happiest sweetest person you'll ever meet.Angela's husband Norm was a great photographer for our simple little wedding. Choose Angela Keen!!! I promise you'll regret it if you don't !!!

    Angela performed our wedding near Sandys, and it went better than I had imagined. The surroundings were beautiful and the ceremony that Angela did matches every part of. The addition of the local traditions completed our special day. We will never forget it and the outstanding job that Angela did. We are so thankful for her for helping us out for our wedding. Even though we only have 6days to prepare everything.

    Angela was the perfect officiant for our wedding! She was so professional and helpful with all aspects of our ceremony. She communicated often & promptly. When obtaining our license, the clerk saw that Angela was performing our ceremony & said that she was wonderful...and she was! Angela even braved an impending hurricane to get to us and never was bothered by the weather! In fact, she brought along her husband to hold umbrellas over us. Angela is the best! Highly recommended!

    We had never used Thumbtack before and didn't know what to expect. After sending our information Angela was one of a few who responded. There was something about her profile and smile that caught our attention. When we arrived in Honolulu we arranged a meeting with her. We had an instant connection, she is wonderful, kind and glows with happiness. She is the BEST! Make no other choice!

    What a great experience. Angela had all the details perfectly planned for us. She helped our guests with travel and her connections helped us tremendously. Her ceremony brought us to tears. She puts a personal touch on the ceremony. Best wedding ceremony ever!

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I meet with the couple and speak with them on the phone. I provide unlimited phone calls at no charge. I write a different marriage ceremony for each couple. Every marriage ceremony includes a Hawaiian blessing which is optional. Other sentiments can be added such as Celtic handfasting, cord/veil/coin ceremonies, sand ceremonies. I can also assist the couple with finding reputable wedding vendors (photographers, videographers, emcees, DJ's, florists, etc.) I will be happy to recommend trusted, respected and talented vendors as well as things that will save you money!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I spent 30 years in the media. Five years in radio and 25 years in TV news. Speaking in front of audiences and keeping everyone calm under stress is what I do best.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I worked with a travel agency in Hawaii where I specialized in weddings. I was a respected TV news anchor for 25 years. With my TV background becoming a licensed marriage officiant was natural for me!
What types of customers have you worked with?
I work with people from all walks of life. I am known for being diverse and accommodating. Every couple's ceremony is special!
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
All weddings are special and unique. I work hard to personalize every ceremony according to the couples wishes, dreams and needs.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
If you are planning on doing a beach wedding, please make sure your wedding officiant or planner has the required liability insurance for right of entry permits which are required by law for state beaches.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Prices vary according to experience and the added extras the officiant offers. Don't bargain for your wedding ceremony, choose quality and a respected, proven officiant/celebrant. It is the most important part of your special day.
