Reverend James Chun was ordained as a wedding officiant after being involved with weddings for over 10 years. Honolulu has been home to James for over 30 years. At the age of 5, James left his birthplace, China, for a new life in America. After coming the Hawaii, James remembers feeling a strong sense of pride to be a American even at that young age. "Hawaii has given me a home, friends and my beautiful wife and children", says James. Today, James resides in Honolulu along with his two girls, wife (of over 15 years) and doggie, Chewie.
Before becoming a wedding officiant, James owned and operated a medical clinic. After a decade of working with patients, James got bit by the creative bug during a visit from his lifelong friend, who works in Hollywood. Through that meeting, James was introduced to the world of film. After some training, James then started a video production company that still operates today.
During his free time, James enjoys movies, cooking and staying fit at the gym; but most of all, spending time with family and friends.
"I believe that God designed us all with the unique ability to create happiness in ourselves and those around us", says James. He believes there are five things that everyone should practice regularly.
1 Pray - Give thanks for where we are in life, and pray for guidance in where we want to go.
2 Be Active - Activity is good for the body and the mind. It reduces stress, lifts your mood and keeps you young.
3 Work - The pursuit of happiness is often more rewarding than the prize.
4 Love - The most important thing in life are your relationships. Cherish each of them daily.
5 Experience - Try something new. It could be as simple as trying a new route on a daily run or a new restaurant. New experiences bring joy, intrigue and freshness to life.
