Enjoying the four islands together with the family on a cruise ship for a week was a perfect vacation. Reserving the last day of their Hawaii trip was the beautiful Hawaii vow renewal ceremony on June 26,  2017 at the gorgeous white sandy beach of Waimanalo Bay.

The extra travel charge are worth every penny using this location. The Reverend Michael Nelson personalizes his Hawaiian ceremony with information you provide him as he gets to know you.

A wedding in Hawaii

A wedding in Hawaii had the pleasure of planning the memorable wedding of Michelle and Tony Hollins of Maryland. It was June 22, 2017, a beautiful Thursday afternoon at Magic Island, Honolulu, with photo and video crew to capture the arrivals. The guys arrived earlier, Tony with Dad and uncle. Tony in all white with a vest of creamy color, very stylish. A yellow boutonniere to highlight is silky vest. Reverend Michael Nelson whisked them away to the wedding spot looking over the panoramic view of historic Diamond Head and waters toward Waikiki. Activities far out yonder into the background of surfing and canoe paddling. A wedding in Hawaii edits pictures without the activities in the background.  The arrival of the limousine with the gorgeous smiling bride, Michelle, white bridal gown, oh so stylish and chic. The beautiful ladies dressed in yellows and oranges, styles of class. Mom, daughter and love ones emerged happily from the limousine. A colorful bouquet of yellow, orange, white and touch of purple, turned out beautiful with assortment of flowers and ferns. Tony and his guys has turned their backs facing the ocean as not to see the bride until she walked down the aisle. Everyone was set in place with the beautiful broom (yellow orange brightly dominant colors of ribbon) in front of the altar.  Tony and guys face the altar, Reverend Michael blows his conch twice, the wedding ceremony begins. Michelle walking down the aisle to meet Tony.  A Hawaiian sand ceremony mixing of two lives, the marriage vows commitment to become one and love each other always. Their own words of vows were very special. Beautiful rings of love were exchanged. Presentation of a necklace to Michelle;s daughter was emotional. Exchange of the gift of Aloha, purple leis with kisses on each cheek. They enjoyed their tradition of “jump the broom”  after the introduction of the new Michelle and Tony. A wedding in Hawaii sends Mahalo for having us on your very special day.

About our Hawaii weddings

A response to reading an article on google written in 2013 about Hawaii weddings which did not cut the ice of promised Hawaii weddings in Paradise.  What is Paradise? It depends on each individual outlook. A perfect paradise without modern facilities or noise  is definitely not Waikiki or Honolulu.  The country side of Oahu, like the North Shore or the outer island of Kauai, Maui, the Big Island of Hawaii. or Lanai is probably what most people feel would be Paradise. However everywhere you go, nothing is perfect.  Our Hawaii weddings are carefully planned according to how the couple”s wants and desires. Our love and our deepest Aloha is our main ingredient for planning our Hawaii weddings. Most of our couples visits the wedding location chosen when they arrive in Oahu, which is an excellent idea. A beach wedding location usually is located at a park with beach area and public access, weekdays are best for wedding ceremonies with very few people. If traveling on a limited budget, there are no fees, we absorb the permit charge. A private secluded location are definitely not cheap to use. In order to avoid disappointment, do a lot of research, use your judgement and gut feelings on the real thing and the over embellished. “Trust” of a wedding planner chosen for planning Hawaii weddings is very important, speaking to many of them often helps you to guess their character.  Check with the Hawaii Better Business Bureau, most of us are A+ rated.  Go with a planner who will be at your wedding to meet you with ALOHA. We at A wedding in Hawaii thank you for your attention and hope these tips help you. “Just a you and me”  wedding is already Paradise to me.   Mahalo!

Hawaii vow renewals, family love

Love and fun at beautiful Waimanalo Sherwood forest for Hawaii vow renewals. One of the most spacious and gorgeous white sandy beach on the island of Oahu. For Hawaii weddings and Hawaii vow renewals, a perfect place for pictures within the woods of Sherwood Forest among the ironwood trees. The vast scenic view of famous little island and the gorgeous blue-green sparkling Pacific ocean bring a feeling of calm and peace. It is a beautiful place, it might cost a little more because of the travel time, around forty-five minutes from Waikiki to the windward side of Oahu, but well worth the minor cost. The beautiful and charming Maruchy and Chris Cantu happily married for twenty years surprised their two handsome sons with the announcement of Hawaii vow renewals experience involving the whole family. They only were informed the day before the special day. June 13, 2017, La Especial, beautiful limousine picked up the loving family at the Marriott hotel in Waikiki, they happily arrived at Waimanalo Beach greeted by our crew and Reverend Michael Nelson.

Opening the ceremony was the sound of conch shell, the Aloha welcome and congratulations from all friends of Hawaii weddings. A family unity sand ceremony with each member of the family holding their own bottles of sand, poured into one jeweled bag, to continue their blending of lives and love.  Emotions of joy, love and happiness was definitely in the air especially for Chris. The vows repeating Rev. Mike’s words, they found themselves tearful, vows not the same words at their original marriage, but the same meaning of “I will love you forever”. A heartfelt moment with each son with a offering of a lei of love brought tears to the whole family. Finally, Maruchy gave Chris a maile lei, and Chris gave her a white orchid lei as a gift of Aloha.

Hawaii wedding ceremony with a unity sand ceremony to symbolize the mixing of their lives were performed.

Our Hawaii vow renewals

The planning of Hawaii vow renewals and Hawaii weddings are identical, our ceremonies also are almost identical  except for a few tweaks here and there. A very romantic special day reminding couple of their original wedding, without the stress of the church wedding. Celebrating their tenth wedding anniversary were Maria and Rob Rainwater of Austin, Texas. They are vacationing with their seven year old son, Aiden. When they planned this vacation trip to celebrate the anniversary, they felt it would nice to renew their marriage vows. They found us searching on the internet for Hawaii vow renewals, where there are many of us, but we were lucky enough to be chosen.  Hawaii vow renewals are most popular during the summer months, the children are out of school and the whole family goes on vacation to celebrate their vow renewal celebration with the kids. Many times, they involve the children in the ceremony.  Maria and Rob arrived at Waialae Beach Park with Aiden, casually but stylishly dressed. She wore a cream colored dress and Rob and Aiden wore white Polo shirts with tan colored shorts. The arrival of minister, Reverend Michael Nelson to meet and greet them with Aloha. Strolling in the sand near the water’s edge, the family marveled over the beautiful blue green ocean and the green grassy we call the altar at Kahala Beach.  Many of our weddings and Hawaii vow renewals are performed here. At the sound of the conch shell, Aiden was quite awed. First time experiencing the occasion. The vows were said, different from their original but with the same meaning, the sand ceremony with the whole family participating was very nice. Lei exchange before being pronounced renewed, Aiden also got lei-ed. Congratulations to Maria and Rob Rainwater. Mahalo and enjoy your vacation.
