Testimonials from our clients
Five stars is not enough and I really can't say enough about these hosts and the venue. My son is getting married in October. We are all so excited for the happy couple and also because they have chosen the most gorgeous venue for the nuptials. From the moment I saw it, I knew Jake and Daisy would love it - and they did! The beautiful view of the bay is the stuff of dreams and it is only surpassed by the professionalism, warmth, and aloha of the owners, Pete and Gina. If you've got ANY special occasion coming up (not just a wedding!) - this is the perfect venue and the perfect hosts!
The decor, the food, the attention to detail - all top notch! But that's not all - Pete and Gina's enthusiasm and warmth makes you feel more like family than a client. Do yourself a favor - Book this place QUICK!
Hands down if you are getting married on Oahu there is no better option! Pete and Gina went above and beyond to make our day absolutely incredible. He captained his pontoon to get family and the dj to the sandbar. They set up an incredible evening reception and allowed fire pits for smores and fire dancers. They found a perfect projector and screen to display some of our photos we had taken prior to the wedding. Everything we requested they made sure came true. Communication is impeccable and I would chose Aloha Oahu Weddings a million more times for our wedding. The lights in their enormous yard right on the ocean in Kaneohe Bay is like a fairy tail. Absolutely grateful to have met them and been able to use this company for our wedding. Give them a call!!
The water front location is breathtaking. Pete and Gina are top notch with their dedicated customer service. So much room for parties, weddings, and celebrations. Pictures only give you a taste of the panoramic view of Kaneohe Bay. And don't forget that Pete is also Captain Pete! Taking his boat out on the bay is a special touch to an amazing experience. Don't miss the opportunity to have your next big event with these wonderful folks. I can't recommend them enough!
Pete Aloha is extremely easy to work with and willing to go out of his way and make the experience as personal as possible. He is open to ideas and has many ideas of his own. While the company is still fairly new, he is always looking for more opportunities to make weddings memorable to individual preferences, times, dates, etc. I HIGHLY recommend reaching out to this company and at least sitting down with Pete to come up with a plan to make your wedding and/or reception experience one to remember.
Additionally, this is a Veteran owned business, small local business and you should make reservations as soon as possible, before the company grows to the point where it will be difficult to get a date/reservation.
5 STARS for easy to work with and genuinely caring about the individuals.
I had the opportunity of planning a destination wedding here back in November 2021. With all the last minute changes due to Covid, we were in a pinch to find a venue for an intimate ceremony. I am so thankful for how accommodating and hospitable Pete and Gina were to us on such a short notice! We had amazing views from their deck during cocktail hour, and enough space for our guests to mingle and host live performances on the lawn during the reception. Pete even took the bride and groom out on his pontoon boat for couple portraits and as transportation for the grand exit. It was such a memorable night and Pete and Gina are wonderful people to work with.
I was thoroughly amazed at the advanced organized planning, detailed decorations, mood lighting and welcoming atmosphere. I attended both a Christmas party and a Halloween party. The view is spectacular and the incredible large patio overlooking Kaneohe Bay is breathtaking. Their creativity and friendliness shows true Aloha!! I'm blessed to have enjoyed their hospitality. You will not be disappointed having your event here!!
Used them for the boat charter back in May 2021. One of the funnest nights we’ve had on island in over a year! We were able to get 8 members of my local cigar and whiskey club out for an afternoon/evening at the sand bar. We shared whiskey, cigars, food, and camaraderie in and around the pontoon boat. They are fun, safe, and willing to bend over backwards to make sure you have the best time possible. I will definitely do it again and my wife and I will be using them to renew our vows next year for sure!
What an amazing, dream venue. Aloha O'ahu Weddings has it all. Located at beautiful Kaneohe Bay overlooking the turquoise waters of the magical sandbar, it is the ideal location for an outdoor wedding with spectacular views. As an artist I was in heaven soaking up the views surrounding me.
I truly hope we are invited to another event here. Pete and Gina are incredible hosts and filled with the Aloha spirit. They are able to provide a wide variety of services from your wedding officiant, reception venue, sunrise or sunset boat excursions..and even drone photography. Stop looking around and call them today! I highly recommend them, nothing beats the views and a wedding in paradise.
It's pretty simple, really: They helped give us our dream wedding in Hawaii. They worked really hard with us to accommodate our budget. The entire day turned out more beautiful and memorable than we could have imagined! Pete and his wife were incredibly accommodating on the day of the ceremony, providing a gorgeous setup, including some last-second changes that arose. They saved the day. These folks are the absolute best and will go above and beyond to make you happy!

We 100% recommend Pete Aloha and Aloha O'ahu Weddings for your destination wedding. Incredibly flexible- you can work from the simplest private ceremony to an elaborate party. When you bring your ideas to he and Gina, they will make them a reality and will do it on your budget. Both Pete and Gina went out of their way to make our wedding perfect at a very difficult time in their lives and it was completely transparent to us. They provide a personal touch, island knowledge and an incredible list of options to make your event exactly what you want it to be on your budget. Trustworthy, professional, always available on short notice to adjust plans and flexible on the event from every imaginable angle. They made our wedding day one we will never forget. 5 stars for availability, flexibility and building the perfect wedding within budget.
Everyone dreams of the perfect Hawaii wedding but let's face it if you're still together after 20 years you won't remember much of the day, but you will have pictures. The gowns are all the same the suits are all the same even the cakes will look the same, but if your backdrop is the Koolau Mountain Range you will always have that special reminder that yes you had the Dream Hawaii wedding even if the marriage ended up a dumpster fire.
Pete and Gina are amazing!!! They didn't make us feel bad for contacting them only three weeks before our wedding date. They were just excited to give us our dream wedding. Both Pete and Gina will go above and beyond for you and your partner to ensure your day is truly what you want!
The venue is absolutely gorgeous with different options for where you can host the event. I chose to have my ceremony on the deck and the reception in the yard. It was incredible and a day I will always cherish. Pete officiated our wedding, and I'm so glad he did! He asked lots of questions to ensure we had the ceremony we wanted, and it was perfect! The beautiful views of the Kaneohe Bay and ample space make this venue an ideal location for an outdoor Hawaii wedding, but what really makes the difference is Pete and Gina and how much they care!
Gina's beautiful style, bountiful supply of decor, selflessness, open-mindedness and work-ethic will amaze you. She is truly a gem and will make your wedding gorgeous! Pete's constant communication and follow through will make you feel well taken care of. His unpretentious disposition, flexibility, kind, fun-loving self, genuine smile, photography and video skills will truly make your wedding day.
I could go on and on about all the things they did to help us, but it would be close to a short novel. They are two truly special people, who will give you the most special day of your life!
Weddings are supposed to be one of the best moments of your life, and Aloha O'ahu Weddings made that a reality for us! I cannot recommend them enough, everything was perfect. Pete and Gina did an amazing job every step of the way. Always highly responsive, very well organized, and great people to work with that all resulted in a wedding far more beautiful than we had even hoped for
We attended a wedding here last week & were pleasantly surprised not only by the beautiful location and venue but the warm hospitality of the hosts, Pete & Gina! Beautiful views in Kaneohe and the perfect setting for an intimate wedding! The venue is a private residence that lies on a huge/lush property and has everything you need for both your ceremony & reception needs. There were about 75-100 guests and could have easily fit 150+. Pete & Gina are very friendly and accommodating to make sure your special day is perfect! They may also have preferred vendors to help cater your event, along with DJ, photo booth, decor and much more! Would definitely recommend!
By far one of the Best venues to have your wedding day, anniversary or other special occasion. Highly recommend this venue and all it's services they have to offer. You won't be disappointed. Pete and his wife are good people with that aloha vibe and will do everything to see that your event there is an amazing experience you'll always remember.
Pete was exactly what we needed. We were a bit disorganized trying to plan an Oahu wedding from CA, and from the very beginning, even before we hired him, Pete was super responsive, took the time to explain to us all the factors we might consider, and spent LOTS of time and effort helping us plan without even knowing if we'd be working with him. As an officiant, he spent time getting to know us and tailored the ceremony and vows to make them personal and poignant. We even spent time with Pete and his wife Gina after the wedding and they are just the most gracious and hospitable people, we are so grateful to have found them.
Used Peter in Dec and had a great experience. He was easy to work with, very responsive and had countless options and freely shared great recommendation. Pricing was more than fair and he traveled to my location to meet my needs. Extremely professional, polite and user friendly. You will not find a better option on Oahu.

Best island experience by far! Out of all the Hawaiian excursions we’ve been on, Pete, Gina, and their lovable Labs really know how to organize a good time. My friends and I decided to celebrate a birthday with Aloha O’ahu Weddings. When we arrived, we were blown away by the GORGEOUS, panoramic views of the ocean and coastal mountains at the venue. Every detail was covered and then some. We didn’t have to worry about a thing! They not only spoiled us with delicious food (including a birthday cake), paddle boarding out at the sand bar, and every amenity imaginable, but Pete even played a few birthday songs on the piano in front of a stunning Hawaiian sunset to wrap up the evening! Thank you Pete and Gina! We will definitely be back for another unbeatable experience.
