Rev. Mark Yasuhara is a licensed minister with the State of Hawai’i, registered and authorized to perform weddings by the Department of Health.
He and his wife, Diane, were born and raised in the islands, Mark in Hilo on the Big Island and Diane in Honolulu.
When they were in their early 20s, they adopted a teenage boy. They still hold the record in Hawai’i for the youngest couple to adopt such an old child. They also have two grown birth daughters.
For many years Mark and Diane were popular Christian concert and recording artists with some 14 albums to their credit. They performed in some of the great concert halls and churches of America and were featured on Dr. Billy Graham’s international television crusades. They retired from concert ministry in 1989 and have been involved in visitors’ weddings ever since.
