weddings in hawaii

I want the entire world to know that I received a letter today from the State of Hawaii granting me authority to officiate weddings in Hawaii.

Because two Quest couples are getting married in Hawaii in November, I needed to apply for a license to officiate weddings in Hawaii. 

It’s a lifetime license so why waste it.  Anyone else want to fly me out there to officiate your wedding?  I’m here to serve you…

  1. Nice gig! But just out of curiosity, your role as a pastor doesn’t qualify you to officiate in Hawaii? I’ve only done one wedding since becoming ordained a few years ago (I’m not a senior pastor so my invites don’t come frequently), but I pretty much thought that “reverend” status was recognized across the board. Just curious.

  2. Don’t quit your day job Eugene!

    Pastor Cho,

    I hope you enjoy our beautiful state. There’s no place like it on earth – people of all ethnicities live and work in peace and harmony for the most part.

    Coming from the South, this is truly a slice of heaven on earth for me.

    Aloha!

    That is flippn’ awesome dude. Get our your ukulele and play that wedding march. The only real cool thing (outside of doing a wedding in Hawaii) is the fact that you have the God-given authority to unite two people so that they become one in Christ. That is totally rockin’. The icing on the cake definitely has to be that it is in Hawaii though. Congrats!

    Gregory: I thought my role as a pastor would be sufficent but it isn’t. They require an application and a letter of endorsement from your church or denomination.

    Wow – what a nice chance place to have a wedding, and a mini-vacation for you! Just wondering though; last Sunday you mentioned in the sermon that you are unavailable to officiate weddings…this blog entry seems to contradict that?

    christine,
    i owe you an email. i’m behind on so many stuff so i’ll respond to your email as well.

    as for your comment, it’s my pleasure to do weddings. i shared last sunday that i simpy wouldn’t be able to do ALL the weddings which was the case this past year. in addition, some folks want the other pastors to do it which is really cool as well. if i am asked, i will do my best to do it since it’s a joy for me but i also let folks know that i’m usually unable to attend the rehearsals but arrange to meet with folks one-to-one before the wedding. this is in addition to the PreMarital classes that people have to attend.

    Thanks for clarifying, Pastor Cho. No worries on replies for emails; take your time…we know you are an incredibly busy man! Pretty awesome though…it will be fun to see what other states (or countries!) you will be going to add to your repetoire! 🙂

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

My Padawan. My son. My youngest. Encouraging him to not just hit the hoop courts but also the books. Minhee and I met these college boys when we first arrived in Seattle in 1997. They were part of our bible study that we led in our apartment for college students. They were also among the group of 7 people that helped start @seattlequest.

Much has changed in the world...but not their friendship and love. Thank you Jin and George. We love and honor you. These are crazy times in our country and larger world but nevertheless, we're going to keep pursuing the things that God has placed upon our hearts. We're pressing forward...doing our part to reflect mercy, compassion, and justice - locally and globally.

Wednesdays are my @onedayswages office day and I especially love the culmination of hard work for our interns, volunteers, 2 full-time staff, and board as we collaborate with our NGO partners. This week, we signed these checks as we granted out over $75,000 to provide better health care for mothers and their families in Mali and Nepal.

THANK YOU for making this possible Your classic play it cool because you're visiting your old stomping grounds at Princeton and pretend you're not cold but in actuality, you're freezing picture. 20 years, 2 weeks, and counting. What a journey with this woman. I love her...and I want to keep growing in love, honor, and respect. Great to catch up with @jlin7 in Brooklyn at the Nets game. Grateful for his partnership with @onedayswages to support our Girls' Empowerment Fund. The season hasn't been what he hoped for with major injuries...but we can't wait to see you back on the court soon and do what you do. Stay encouraged, brother. Thanks for your faithful witness for Christ.
