REVEREND KUYA (ROBERT) ALAMODIN
More About Kuya
The former altar boy may never have found his calling as a wedding officiant had it not been for the tragic misfortune of a friend. Through one of those bittersweet twists in life, Reverend Kuya's “living Aloha” today follows in the footsteps of a dear brother, the late Marc Grodan of Kihei, Maui. Upon receiving a terminal cancer diagnosis, Marc, the founder of “Affordable Maui Wedding Company," was grateful to pass the baton to Kuya. The rest, as they say, is history. Kuya's loving, easygoing, self-effacing and gentle manner have made him an instant friend to all the couples he has been blessed to wed.
The oldest of seven children, Kuya's youth and adolescence were defined by household chores, caring for his younger siblings, multiple paper routes, and the trials and tribulations of a young boy whose father was largely absent. Today, he is a Certified Nursing Assistant. He has worked for the ARC of Maui as a personal caregiver of special needs adults, and served on the staff at Special Olympics events. As a hospice volunteer and member of Doorway Into Light, he ministers to those facing life's greatest transition.
As a Universal Life Church ordained minister, Kuya believes in making the blessing of a Maui wedding as heartfelt, affordable, and memorable as possible. He has officiated hundreds of ceremonies across Maui Island since 2010. It has been his greatest pleasure to serve couples in this capacity.
