Hawaii weddings at Kahala Beach. It was “King tide” starting to come up further inland, beautiful waves crashing onto the sand, taking sand away from the shore. Tide will get higher rising to the grass area of Kahala Beach in the next day. The Hawaii weddings held at Kahala Beach usually have a calmness with normal ocean levels, high or low. August 17, 2017 was the wedding day of beautiful Jennifer Hafer and Michael Zak Bankhead at this location. From Ocala, Florida, their hear is more humid then it is here so they are enjoying the hot sun in Hawaii. They are staying at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki and our limousine driver picked them up to ride in air condition with style. What a nice and handsome couple, we enjoyed working with. As the limousine arrived, they were met by our minister Michael Nelson and photos were taken of their introduction. Jennifer looked beautiful in a cream colored floor length lacy dress, her hair was partially in a updo and a purple orchid pinned for decor. Zak looked super in matching color. Photos were taken as they strolled on the sand to get to the location of the wedding. Because of higher tide condition it was not as romantic as it normally is. Upon arriving at the grassy knoll, it was beautiful overlooking the ocean and a little mini island. Reverend Mike sounded the conch over the sound of occasional waves slamming on the sand. They each were asked if they were ready to commit into marriage, answering with a “I do”. To begin the blending of their lives together, the past, the present and the future, the unity sand ceremony was performed. Hawaii weddings traditionally have this custom, with every ceremony slightly different then the other. The marriage vows to each other almost always brings tears to their eyes. Happily they admired the beautiful rings as they were being blessed. The exchange of rings were done with ring vows, ” accept this ring as a symbol of my love”. Leis were blessed and exchanged with words of love to each other. Presenting the new Michael “Zak” and Jennifer Bankhead. The very best to you both, we enjoyed meeting such a super couple. Mahalo for having us and your generosity. Aloha.by

We married them twenty years ago, today a Hawaii vow renewal ceremony will be celebrated with the presence of their beautiful three teenage children. Debbie and John Campsmith from Austin, Texas has chosen beautiful Waimanalo Bay Beach Park, Sherwood Forest as their Hawaii vow renewal ceremony location. August 14, 2017 they all arrived all the way from the North shore on Oahu looking with anticipation to once again meet up the Reverend Frank Mak, who originally married them. Their ceremony twenty years ago was held in a location totally different, being the lush gardens of Kualoa Ranch. Arriving casually dressed but very stylish. They all were color coordinated in cream. Debbie and their two daughters looked gorgeous in haku head leis. John and son looked handsome with white leis. The beautiful ocean of Waimanalo Bay was a little balmy, but still beautiful with mile long sandy beach and little islands like Rabbit island in the background. Rain was a threatening factor, pineapple juice is what Reverend Frank call it, a omen of good luck. Situating the ceremony under the Sherwood Forest trees, but still have the scenic view of the beach, was great in case of rain. The wish for Debbie and John to use their exact same Vows of their marriage twenty years ago was a beautiful thought, At that time, there were no children, they were in the thoughts only of the then new Debbie and John. But today, son and daughters are present to hear them repeat their marriage vows, which started the lives they enjoy together today. Reverend Mak delivered his Aloha welcome in the Hawaiian language (oh, so familiar to the couple). Beautiful emotional vows, prayers and blessing were the gift of the Hawaii vow renewal from Reverend Frank Mak. Congratulations and may your love keep your family loving with Aloha. Mahalo from A wedding in Hawaii

Most of our Hawaii weddings are held during the weekdays. We offer several locations for our Hawaii weddings which are all public parks. We recommend having your weddings on weekdays instead of the weekend to avoid the weekend crowd. To have a serene and gentle atmosphere is difficult when there are many people. We try to find a quiet ideal spot, and during the weekend the choices are slim. We have beautiful Hawaii weddings with tradewinds, but it can be windy at times, so we recommend your hair with an updo. Of course we do weekend weddings, but try to limit it. The wedding of Rico Rodriguez and Soomin Im was at Ala Moana Magic Island on August 8, 2017. Magic Island (man made) with the historic Diamond Head as a background presents a scenic ocean background looking toward Waikiki. It is less windy then most beaches. Rico met Soomin in Korea when he was there. He is serving our country in the Marine Corp. Soomin is the sweetest person. The were both dressed business casual, she held a blue bouquet. Their mothers were there to support and bless their marriage. Our very simplest package of Hawaii weddings was chosen, nothing elaborate, just the minister who added his conch blowing as a symbol of a Hawaiian wedding. There were vows of commitment to love and care for each other always. The beautiful rings were blessed . Rico and Soomin each accepted the rings as a token of their love, Shell leis were exchanged. Now we present the new Rico and Soomin, kissing for the first time as husband and wife. Best wishes and thank you for choosing us.
We have had many Hawaii vow renewals enjoyed by couples all over the world, but most are from the United States. We enjoy planning these joyous rite just as much as the loving couples themselves. Families join in and have a cry or two and have a wonderful time. Many have written back and thanked us for the nice memories of a stress free Ohana style (family) gathering. Hawaii with the many different ethnic background and traditions have popularized the enjoyment of Hawaii vow renewal ceremony. Locally they celebrate the fiftieth anniversary with a vow renewal ceremony and invite hundreds of people to their luau or reception. Good luck is involved. Loyd and Chau of Texas will celebrate their twentieth anniversary soon and chose August 9, 2017 to have the memories of Hawaii vow renewals to enjoy as they honeymoon. They have known each other as high school sweethearts and have twenty nine years of love together with two children to be proud of. On August 9, 2017 they arrived at Waialae Beach Park looking so very youthful stylishly dressed for the beach vow renewal. She looked lovely and petite in a summer dress of cream color, he tall and handsome dressed accordingly in tan and cream color outfit. Reverend Michael Nelson got to know a little about them to personalize his vow renewal ceremony. A beautiful day, low tide with blue waters, Loyd and Chau strolled hand in hand on the sandy beach. Kahala Beach if where the grassy knolls are for staging the ceremony with the backdrop of the beach and little islands. Hawaii vow renewals as well as Hawaii weddings usually begin with the conch blowing by the minister, to announce that something important was about to happen. This is according to ancient Hawaiian history. Reverend asked for their commitment to reavow their marriage with vows different from their original but having the same meaning of promise. Holding hands, eyes locked, they took their vows with tears in their eyes. Memories filled them with emotion. A beautiful, beautiful moment full of love. Exchanging the gift of Aloha concluded the renewal of Loyd and Chau. Congratulations and return to us someday with your children. Mahalo with Aloha.
