  • Joseph was a delight to work with as we planned our commitment ceremony! He was very thoughtful about incorporating details about our lives and our relationship into the ceremony, and also added some special requests that we had made. We met with him the day before our event, and we had a wonderful connection which made the ceremony that much more relaxed and personal. He honors the Hawaiian culture and traditions (such as a conch blowing, if desired) while assuring that your ceremony is just what you have in mind. We highly recommend Joseph Narrowe as an officiant - you can't go wrong! Gail Kouame and Evan Spill

  • Planning a destination wedding can be a difficult and stressful process and the person officiating your wedding is one of the most important things you chose. We were lucky enough to find Joseph early on in the process and the experience could not have been better. Joseph immediately set up a call with my husband and I because he wanted to know about our relationship and what we wanted in our ceremony. Through conversations and a comprehensive worksheet, Joseph was able to craft a beautiful ceremony that suited us perfectly. The first time I read it I cried! We met in person in Maui. Then perhaps most important, on the day of the wedding he made sure we were calm and happy. Thank you Joseph for helping to make our Maui wedding special and memorable! We recommend him to anyone, especially interfaith couples.

  • We had six weeks to plan a wedding in Maui and hired Joseph Narrowe as our officiant. With no real understanding of how to go about doing this, Joseph was extremely helpful in helping us select a beach location that was away from the crowds and quite beautiful. Furthermore, he tailored and wrote our wedding vows; personalizing them and speaking to us and our relationship. He embraced and understood the significance of the moment, and for that we are grateful. Additionally, he allowed us to bring in our own photographer (someone we hired from the island), which made for a seamless and perfect wedding.

  • Joseph performed as the officiant in our ceremony, and I couldn't have been happier to have chosen him for our special day. He responded to all emails promptly, which takes a lot of stress off you when you're planning an elopement from afar. He spent 15 minutes on the phone with me, answering my questions and getting to know me. He immediately made me feel at ease, and I knew immediately that I had chosen the right person. The day before the ceremony, he met my fiance and I for coffee. It was so nice to get to sit down with him in person before he became such a big part of our intimate moment. I had forgotten to make arrangements to meet a marriage licence agent, but Joseph had the name of a lady who was able to meet with us the next morning. They saved the day! On the day of our elopement, Joseph was on time, calm and reassuring, and very professional and personable. The ceremony went perfect! The vows were just what we wanted and really reflected us as a couple. Joseph made us fe... Read more

  • Reverend Joseph married my husband and I on May 19, 2018 (in Kapalua, Maui), and words cannot describe how pleased we were with the ceremony he wrote and delivered. He was such an important part of our big day and we’re so grateful we found him! We first heard about Joseph through a referral, and fortunately were able to meet him and spend some quality time together before our wedding (as we live in Los Angeles and were planning a wedding from afar). Within the first 10 minutes of meeting Joseph, my husband and I intuitively knew he was the one i.e. the right minister for us. He casts a warm, welcoming and friendly vibe that makes you feel like he’s an old friend. Joseph also is intelligent and wise, and we appreciated the frank and profound things he had to say about marriage, as well as what he suggested we reflect on when writing our vows. We instantly clicked with his fun-loving sense of humor, too! Regarding the experience of creating our wedding ceremony – from start to fin... Read more

  • Joseph was so helpful when it came to customizing our ceremony. He gave examples for us to get inspired by when we were writing our own vows. Joseph is calm and very down to earth, talking with him feels like you're talking to a long time friend. We are so happy with how our ceremony turned out.

  • Joseph Narrowe and I spoke for the first time through the phone. Living in Indiana while the wedding would be in Hawaii was going to be a tricky thing, however Joseph did not let that stop him from contacting and welcoming us. Not only was he kind and understanding, you could really tell this meant something special to him. He did not come to just do his job but as a friend who wanted wished two people the world's happiness. Truly he is an example of what the Aloha Spirit is! And as you can imagine the wedding ceremony was perfect. Well, at least on his part. His patience with our clumsiness however was very warm and professional. Thank you so much Joseph for everything you've done for us.

  • My husband and I tied the knot in Maui on February 20, 2018 and were married by Reverend Joseph Narrowe. We couldn't be happier with Joseph's services to us for our special day. He was so kind and genuine, and completely put us at ease before and during the ceremony. He helped us navigate the steps to getting married oversees without a wedding planner, which was a major bonus for us. The best part of having Joseph perform our wedding was how he helped us to create the perfect ceremony that suited exactly our personalities and what we envisioned. We wanted a spiritual, non-religious ceremony and he really captured that for us and was able to make it very personal and intimate. We would highly recommend Joseph to anyone looking to get married in Maui in a heart beat. Thank you Joseph for the wonderful memories we will always cherish of our perfect day! -Emma & David

  • Joseph was the officiant at our wedding in Maui and he was wonderful! As we started to evaluate different individuals to officiate our wedding, Joseph really set himself apart. He was really adamant that the ceremony was about us and helped us think through the perfect balance of what we wanted in our ceremony -- taking into account the personal, religious and family aspects that we wanted to include. In addition, neither of us had been to Maui before and Joseph was very helpful in identifying beach locales for our ceremony and providing feedback on those locations that others had recommended. We really struck-up a genuine relationship with Joseph and would recommend him to anyone!

  • Aloha, I generally don't review or comment on service providers. However, in the case of Joseph Narrowe I must make an exception because he is and was truly exceptional. Many, many months ago Barbara and I planned our annual trip to the Islands. As our departure to Maui drew near we decided to add an event--our wedding. Fortunately we found Joseph. He took the time to get to know us, asked all the right questions and composed a beautiful, highly personal and meaningful ceremony. He then braved the traffic to West Maui, obtained the beach permit and perfectly performed our lovely beach wedding. We couldn't be happier. Mahalo Joseph. Barb and Scott

  • Joseph made the entire experience peaceful, meaningful with his kindness and professionalism, and a lot of fun on a day that should be pure/fun/deep/true. He is prompt, concerned, and complete in every manner, the location was spot on and beyond epic. We wanted a quiet, secluded, on the beach relaxed ceremony.......Joseph delivered and then some.....it was a magical experience. Thank you Joseph! Chris and Kristina

  • We booked the elopement package at the Four Seasons in Maui and Joseph was recommended by our event coordinator Stephanie. We were looking for a non-religious ceremony and Joseph was happy to work with us on a script that fit our relationship and values. Joseph gave our ceremony a personal touch and really put us at ease through the entire process.
