Hawaii weddings so intimate

Love is universal, Hawaii weddings are universal. We enjoy planning weddings and vow renewals for lovely couples from all over the world. Our Hawaii weddings and Hawaii vow renewals are planned with our caring love, on the island of Oahu. We limit our locations to three Oahu beach-parks, Waimanalo Bay Beach, Waialae Beach Park (Kahala Beach), and Magic Island at Ala Moana Park. Our specialty and love are small groups with a family style (Ohana) Hawaii weddings. Although our market of Hawaii weddings wide spread and extremely competitive, we strive for simple and small. Archways on the sand are not available with us for legal reasons. The biggest recommendation for couples who have beach/park weddings, have your hair styled up, Hawaii beaches are windy. On September 20, 2017 it was a super lovely day at Ala Moana Magic Island, but a bit windy. Szu-Yun “Siky” Wang and Man Ho “Peter” Cheung has been together for twenty lovely years. Via Hong Kong to Taiwan, and presently the United States, this lovely and sweet couple has made a beautiful life together with many businesses they managed and own during the years together. Peter is now happily retired and decided it was time to tie the knot. Here they are in Hawaii having some fun for a while, renting a condo in Honolulu. They arrived dressed smartly casual with floppy hats, so cute. The floppy hats were a lifesaver because of the wind, no problem with hair flying for the photos. Reverend Michael Nelson got them married with a simple wedding ceremony, Silky looked great with a double white and purple orchid lei. The nicest couple they are. Congratulations to the new Peter and Silky. Mahalo and Aloha.

Hawaii vow renewals of Aloha

Hawaii vow renewals, what a week of enjoyment and memories enjoyed by loving couples. We had a super time also, like we always do, but helping couples renew their vows are so nice because being already married, they are not stressed out. Hawaii vow renewals for us is like a family gathering (Ohana as we say in Hawaiian). Many start by planning a vacation in Hawaii with their family, then this beautiful idea, should we renew our vows in Hawaii too? It is an exciting idea, and the children gets involved. The beauty and feeling of having your children present for the ceremony, one cannot begin to explain. The memories of this moment they take home with them are precious and remembered for generations. Some of Hawaii vow renewals couple are empty nesters that take long vacations and have a private intimate ceremony to commemorate their vows of years together.
Our Hawaii vow renewals September 14, 2017 Amy and Rob Jankovsky of Ohio celebrated their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary “just the two of them” with a intimate Hawaii vow renewal ceremony at a beach scene, so different from their original wedding. A stress free happy couple still very much in love. Amy looked as lovely and slim as she did at her wedding day (confirmed by Rob) with a off white stylish dress. Rob looked cool and sharp too. Reverend Michael Nelson delivered a ceremony they will forever cherish. Thank you to the renewed Amy and Rob.
Nicole and Craig MacDonald of Australia celebrating their sixteen years of wedded bliss, renewed their vows on September 18, 2017. Their three beautiful daughters enjoyed the moments with others giving support to their parents. A sprinkle of rain as good luck for their Hawaii vow renewal at Magic Island. Singer-ukulele played and sang the Hawaiian wedding song and the Reverend Michael Nelson sprinkled his magic to renew their wedding vows. Congratulations to Nicole and Craig.
Twenty years of married bliss fr Trish and Chris Carney from Australia. On September 19, 2017 memorable vow renewals with blessings at Magic Island. A floral haku head lei for beautiful Trish and daughter, white orchid leis for Chris and son. Arrival by limousine, what a wonderful family. A Hawaii vow renewal by Rev. Mike Nelson forever cherished. Mahalo and Aloha for such fine people.
We love and cherish these ceremonies, we had so much fun with you all. Our Aloha always.

Our Hawaii weddings for those serving our country

Hawaii is fortunate to have so many military bases and services.  Hawaii weddings are one of the most precious and treasured times for these loving couples who are apart most of the time. Many couples decide to have Hawaii weddings so they can carry on their loving memories as they travel to different bases. Many get married before deployment, but many have their spouse to be fly over, have the wedding and honeymoon in Hawaii. In the years past we have enjoyed meeting so many of our men and women serving our country and had the joy of planning their weddings. Most of these were from the Marine corp branch of service. Johnnie Stubbs is a proud US marine stationed in Hawaii, and will be transferred after Christmas to another base with his wife.  His bride to be beautiful smiling Kristen Amato ran away from the Hurricane in Florida to be with him. Thus, Hawaii weddings on the beach. Of course when he planned this beautiful event, they did not expect Hurricane Irma. The love story of our Hawaii wedding ceremony Kirsten and Johnnie begins on September 14, 2017. They arrived early to Waialae Beach Park to change to their attire fit for Hawaii weddings. She is gorgeous with such beautiful smile, simply elegant in classy white dress, smartly wearing slippers to walk in the sand. He is very handsome in his dress Marine Corp uniform. What a beautiful bridal couple. Meeting our minister the Reverend Michael Nelson with the handshakes of Aloha.  A beautiful serene day for their wedding at Kahala Beach. We walk ahead as Kirsten and Johnnie held hands walking on the sand with photographer being taken as they romantically walk toward the gassy beach altar site. Intimate, serene aura and romantic wedding ceremony started with the announcement of Hawaii weddings. The call of the conch, the wedding of the Johnnie & Kirsten, a new beginning. The unity sand ceremony and the lei giving were a compliment to their beautiful wedding vows spoken over the gentle sounds of the wave. The newlyweds will enjoy the awesome memories helped by the many pictures of beauty of their wedding of Thursday, Sept. 14, 2017 at Kahala Beach. Congratulations! Mahalo for having us on your special day, and Johnnie thank you for serving our country. Have a fantastic life together. Aloha.

Fun loving couple enjoys Hawaii wedding ceremony on Oahu

The beautiful Hawaii wedding of Nicole Wyngaard and Jeff Calabrese.  On September 6, 2017 at Waimanalo Bay Beach, a gorgeous Wednesday Hawaiian afternoon on the Windward side of Oahu was a chosen location for their Hawaii wedding. Just the two of them but a package full of love, beauty and deep memories to enjoy. Such a nice free spirited couple, they kept changing their package features, but we are always delighted to accommodate our couples because it is the happiest day of their life. The park with miles of white sandy beach and rolling blue-aqua ocean were pretty empty. Shadows of wooded Sherwood forest stood in the back awaiting a welcome as a wedding portrait studio.  This handsome couple decided to turn down the long limousine ride and drive their rental yellow, hot mustang instead. Arriving with cameras rolling, the love story begins (still camera and video camera capturing visions at it’s best). Nicole, looked beautiful, her hair and makeup so natural, so like her. A simple but elegant lace gown perfect for her slenderness. Handsome and rascal Jeff, smartly dressed in a tan outfit with trousers and vest of the same color, white long sleeve shirt to complement. The couple meets Reverend Michael Nelson shaking hands, singer guitarist Katsu, playing Hawaiian melodies. Presenting a floral boutonniere for Jeff’s lapel, and a matching beautiful cascade bouquet of white roses and large colorful orchids with purple spray of orchids for Nicole.  This Hawaii wedding ceremony will be set in the white sandy area with the backdrop of small famous islands in the back and the beautiful sea and beaches. With the plashing waves on the beach, cameras rolling, Reverend sounds his conch. The Hawaiian wedding song by Katsu on guitar, a beautiful scene with Nicole and Jeff holding hands. So intimate, with just the two of them, they shared the experience of the unity sand ceremony and all the Hawaiian wedding moments on the beach. So into each other, so rascal, happiness is Love. The vows were beautiful, Rev. Mike spoke some blessings in Hawaiian, and following the ring vows and the traditional lei exchange (gorgeous thick double white orchid leis),  they officially became the new Jeff and Nicole Calabrese.  Congratulations,  a ceremony enjoyed and memories of forever. They are hooping it up at the Hilton Luau tonight, enjoying the island of Hawaii and Maui the next few days, then flying to South Africa for a family to meet each other wedding  reception. Thank you so much, we truly enjoyed you both and hope you return someday. Aloha from A wedding in Hawaii.

Just the two of them Hawaii weddings

Getting married away from home can be a romantic and intimate one. Hawaii weddings, some like it elaborate but most of our couples love the “just the two of us” wedding ceremony. These Hawaiian wedding ceremonies or Hawaii vow renewals are small without anyone, but themselves, they are able to relax, no nervousness and enjoy their quiet intimate private moments. The beauty of it all is a cozy, romantic, intimate ceremony on the beach with the gentle waves washing up on the beach. During the weekdays is the best time to choose a quiet ceremony at the beach when there are few people on the beach. This is exactly what our sweet couple from Sheboygan, Wisconsin chose. On September 5th, 2017 Tuesday, the day after the busy labor day weekend, a perfect day. Tammy Yenger and Richard Platfoot arrived early excited for their special day. She was gorgeous in a off white satin gown, with the french bouquet highlighted with beautiful tropical flowers with white and lots of purple. Richard had a matching purple orchid bout on his shirt, he was smartly dressed in casuals,  Hawaii weddings for us we usually have a photo session after the ceremony, however in this case we did it before the wedding ceremony since they arrived early.  Hawaii weddings “just the two of them” began with our minister, Reverend Michael Nelson’s arrival. After having fun joking and getting acquainted we viewed the beauty of this Hawaiian day, it was so clear we could see the next two island on the horizon (Maui, Lanai), a perfect day for a romantic, intimate wedding. They set up a cell phone to transmit live,  so their love ones could watch the ceremony. It was a very romantic and intimate wedding ceremony with the conch shell blown by Rev. Mike, the unity sand ceremony followed by the vows and ring ceremony. Finally the blessing and exchange of leis with words for each other ” just between you and me”. Congratulations to the new Richard and Tammy Platfoot. This  beautiful couple will be celebrating their reception back home this weekend. Mahalo so much for having us. Aloha.

End of Summer Hawaii weddings

Aloha, it has been a great summer ride for Hawaii weddings. Thanking everyone for choosing Hawaii for your vacation and/or Hawaii vow renewals, Hawaii weddings. We had so much enjoyment and Aloha as usual. A lot of our couples are matured (40 plus) and have been through a larger wedding ceremony experience before. They love the small simplicity of Hawaii weddings near the beaches of Oahu. The atmosphere and the aura simply cannot be beat. We have a wedding on the last day of August (31) 2017 for the lovely Karen Perman and charming Robert McCarthy from Indianapolis, Indiana. It s a beautiful summer day at Waialae Beach, the tide is up with the upcoming sign of King Tide projected. Three thirty in the afternoon Hawaii weddings in the summer at this time is quite lovely, today the tradewind cooling the air is manageable. At times Hawaii beaches are windy, and hard to predict, our suggestion is to have your hair styled up. We have had complaints about the windy factor but controlling the elements is difficult and we do the best we can. They arrived early with loving family members Dad, Mom, and siblings. Lovely Karen smartly dressed in your lacy creme colored gown, Robert with his charm looked great in blue Aloha shirt and walking shorts. Blue seemed the color prevailing with Mom looking great in blue Hawaiian outfit. She was there holding the ring and tissues for the emotional couple. This family is the nicest polite people. Evidently serving in the military is in the family trait, we are thankful. Reverend Michael Nelson is the presiding minister to present beautiful ceremony of Hawaii weddings, that Karen and Robert will forever remember.  As we gather on the grassy alter, waves bouncing against the rocks, sound of the conch shell to announce their marriage ceremony. Here begins a new life together with participation of a unity sand ceremony, the marriage vows, ring exchange, lei exchange, and blessing with family participation. A beautiful Hawaii beach wedding, presenting the new Karen and Robert McCarthy. Congratulations and Mahalo from A wedding in Hawaii.
