Eve offers Simple, Spiritual, Private, meaningful ceremonies. Whether you are getting married, renewing vows, or simply having a sacred ceremony to honor next steps, we can help you. Our goal is to help you to customize this sacred event to reflect exactly the message you wish to convey.
Two ceremonies—one traditional and one non-traditional are offered for you as a starting point. We offer LGBT ceremonies, full moon weddings, labyrinth weddings, underwater Scuba weddings and weddings in the shark tank at the Maui Ocean Center.
If you can dream it, we will work with you to create it. Whether on the labyrinth, beach or sea, Eve will work with you to design a ceremony to honor this special moment in your life.
Simple, Sacred Ceremonies
Feel free to mix and match, cut and paste or personalize to your heart’s content. We can change the readings or the prayers, include a lei exchange, or not. Eve will be happy to work with you if you prefer a specific denomination for your wedding (i.e.Buddhist wedding, Christian Wedding, Spiritual but not religious, etc.)
Eve has performed weddings on top of Haleakala, helicoptered in to the top of the west Maui Mountains, underwater at Molokini Crater, on a boat off the coast of Maui, in the shark tank at the Maui Ocean Center, on a labyrinth at The Sacred Garden, on an island in San Francisco Bay, in Laguna Beach, San Juan Capistrano, a red rock ranch in the hills of Utah and at a mansion in Nashville, Tennessee. While Maui and the other Hawaiian islands are the most common place for Eve to perform ceremonies, if you would like Eve to officiate elsewhere, call and explore the possibilities.
“When I first started offering weddings, I was most surprised by the honor I felt to be included in the tangible circle of love, almost like a vortex, that I could feel during the ceremony. The most important wedding advice I offer my couples is to be present. This is not a photo shoot or a performance. This is a sacred ceremony between them. The more focused on each other they can be, (as opposed to an audience, the photographer, or even me) the more powerfully that “vortex” is felt.” —Rev. Eve Hogan
All ceremonies can be personalized, here are some sample options:
“Love is simply not enough to make a marriage work. Statistics show that couples wait six years too long to get help. Taking the time to gain important relationship skills BEFORE there is a problem can save you immense heartache, pain and expense. The skills and tools offered in this book will help you with all your relationships—with yourself, your sweetheart, children, etc. i don’t just want to help you make the commitment to each other, I want to help you make that commitment lasting and loving.”—Eve Hogan, wedding officiant, author of How to Love Your Marriage

Whether on the labyrinth, beach or sea, Eve will work with you to design a ceremony to honor this sacred stage of your life.
Beach weddings require a state permit ($30 additional)
You must have a valid Hawaii marriage license to be legally married. There is no waiting period, no blood tests are required, and the license is valid statewide for 30 days. You do not need witnesses in Hawaii. Both partners must be at least 18 years of age (unless they have written consent from parents or legal guardians), and must appear together before a licensing agent on any island. Proof of age may be requested in the form of a driver’s license or I.D. If either partner has been married before, he or she will have to state the date, county and state (or country) in which the marriage was ended. The license also requires the full names of each partner’s parents and their place of birth. The fee for the license is $60, and is payable in cash to the licensing agent. For a complete packet of information, contact the Department of Health at (808) 586-4544. Each community has a licensing agent as well.
Maui Wedding Photography and Videography:
Photography and videography are additional. Eve works with a number of excellent photographers and videographers. Greg Hoxsie and Benja Iglesis are recommended photographers. Kevin Herrington is recommended as an above water videographer and Steve Hogan for underwater videography. The pricing is hugely variable, generally $395-$495 starting and up.
