Officiate Profile

Reverend Derek Schoenhoff
(pictured with his wife)

Reverend Derek Schoenhoff performs weddings for several resorts on the Big Island. He offers conch shell blowing, a Hawaiian song of blessing, a message on love, the vows and rings exchange ― plus whatever else the couple would like to incorporate into the wedding. Examples are the Hawaiian land ceremony, a unity sand ceremony, additional musical items or poetry items, honoring of the ohana and/or the parents or children, or a scripture verse. Derek says it could be something he's not done before. Another option is premarital counseling.

Reverend Derek has access to translators in more than 20 languages. He's traveled to more than 90 nations and is actively involved with international reconciliation initiatives. He's also pastor of a small local Hawaiian congregation and is able to appeal to a diverse group of clientele. Every ceremony is custom-tailored ― making it unique and special.
