Memories of our Hawaii vow renewals

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.

Far away in Wisconsin, they are thinking, should we have a Hawaii vow renewal? It would be fun high lighting a celebration for their fifth wedding anniversary. A vacation and a Hawaii vow renewal ceremony, what a great idea. Nicole and William Flesses found us and had us help plan their special day. Our Hawaii vow renewal ceremony are similarly structured like a Hawaii wedding ceremony the beach. We enjoy our job helping couples plan a day of beautiful happenings to remember forever.  A Hawaii vow renewal ceremony is planned to be full of love, everyone feeling relaxed, without stress, and happy. Ours is in a style we call “Ohana” meaning family style. We all gather  happily at the ceremony site and get acquainted a bit, a real Hawaiian Aloha style. By the time we gather at our site in this case, Kahala Beach, we are all happy and like friends.  Nicole and William just celebrated five years of happy love and marriage and it is celebration time with their beautiful (two) daughters standing by. William’s parents joined them on this journey and gifted them with a limousine ride to and from the Hawaii vow renewal site. How sweet. A morning in Hawaii, so beautiful and serene, ocean waters at low tide and turquoise waters. After the ceremony they stayed a while to frolic on the sandy beach and warm waters. Reverend Michael Nelson was the officiant. As we gathered under the coconut trees, he blew the conch in perfect harmony. (He charged his battery). A unity sand ceremony was enjoyed, and surprisingly they did have a sand ceremony five years ago for their original wedding at home. A loving Vow to each other, to continue loving and caring for each other and their children. New beautiful rings were exchanged, how lucky, Nicole. Two wonderful people with two beautiful girls. Nicole and William are the new renewed Mom and Dad Flesses. You guys are awesome. Mahalo so much for joining our wedding family, our Ohana. Aloha!

On May 2, 2016, after 20 years of blissful marriage, resulting in producing three beautiful girls, Dinita and Ben Willman participated in a Hawaii vow renewal ceremony.  What a gorgeous day at Waimanalo Beach, Sherwood Forest. The ocean was as blue-aqua color, amazingly the girls and Dinita wore teal colored sun dresses which was a perfect match. Ben wore white shirt and trousers, no match to the ocean, just the waves. They arrived early, meeting Rev. Michael Nelson to go over the details of the ceremony.  Our weddings and Hawaii vow renewals are very laid back and family (Ohana) style. Relaxing and nothing to stress over. Dinita was worried that she had to say some Hawaiian words, which seem to always start with a K. We had a great time with this loving couple and daughters.  Rev. Mike announced the ceremony by sounding his conch shell.  Aloha and congratulations from Rev. Mike  with the start of the  unity sand ceremony, he asked the girls to grab a hand full of sand. He explained the beauty and the meaning of the symbolism of mixing sand in unity. As Dinita and Ben poured their vials of sand into a decorative bag, the three girls added their sand into the bag.  The Hawaii vow renewal, words in the vows although not the same as their original vows, it was totally memorable. Smiles from their daughters were priceless. Rings were exchanged as they reflected on the beauty and the meaning it represents.  With the Hawaiian lei exchange, after giving each other leis and extended their love and thank yous, they showered additional leis, the gift of love  to their girls.  Ladies and gentlemen, Presenting the renewed  Dinita and  Ben Willman  of Plano, Texas!  Many family photos, portraits will be enjoyed by all, of this beautiful Hawaii vow renewal ceremony.  They will enjoy days in Maui before flying home.
