The Magic Island experience of Hawaii weddings

The magic island experience of Hawaii weddings and Hawaii vow renewals are very popular with couples looking for a simple and affordable Hawaii weddings or vow renewal ceremony. Magic Island has the beauty of a green Diamond Head today with the heavy rain a few days ago. In comparison, the dry brown color of the summer has disappeared. Just a week ago we have done weddings here without this extra color of beauty along with the blue ocean. For Melissa Adington and Jason Schell of Australia this spot was perfect being very close to Waikiki where they are staying. A simple wedding with extra flower leis made the event so “just the two of us”. The Hawaii wedding package of their choice gave them a experience of a magical wedding of simplicity so called Magic Island at Ala Moana. Hawaii largest mall is just across the street called Ala Moana shopping center. Some of our Hawaii wedding couples go to celebrate their marriage at the many dining opportunities they can choose from. Our handsome couple were so tall that they towered over us shorter people like us. Melissa was gorgeous with a stylish off white cream colored dress which was so chic on her. Her handsome husband to be wore white shirt and Khaki outfit, looking so lovingly at his radiant bride. A beautiful Hawaiian day, November 1, 2017, a memory of love began with the conch shell blowing by Reverend Michael Nelson, announcing the beginning of a beautiful celebration. Commitment of marriage with love, sharing vows of forever and sealing the union with rings of brilliance. The new Jason and Melissa begin their new life together, in the State of Hawaii, this loving union begins this day. Congratulations, our best wishes and Mahalo. It was indeed a pleasure to meet you.

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.

Small intimate Hawaii weddings

They currently reside in Hawaii, she recently arrived from the Philippines about three weeks ago to join him as he works in Honolulu. Beautiful and sweet Nizza Pastelero and her handsome husband to be, Joshua Amphlett decided just recently to have us plan their simple wedding.  Just the two of them with families far away, simply the idea of Hawaii weddings at the beach danced in their dreams. So the chosen special date became August 26, 2017 Saturday at Kahala Beach. We finally met them that morning and we could feel their love and connection between them. She was stylishly dressed in a white strapless wedding gown with a train to help create the wedding portrait we like. She held a Japanese rice paper umbrella that said “just married” If the tradewind behaves, we will use it for a photo prop. They both wore gray matching snickers, so cute as well as smart, for walking in the sand. Joshua was in a gray outfit with a vest. A beautiful couple. Reverend Michael Nelson arrived to greet them with Aloha and prepared to make sure they had their marriage license and rings. With all the Hawaii weddings we do, you will be surprised how many couples forget to bring their marriage license with them to the location. As planners  we do have that information on their confirmation and verbal reminder upon arrival in Hawaii. Nizza and Joshua definitely had theirs as well the rings from Na Hoku. A romantic stroll on the beach with very few people (on a Saturday) at the beach. The beginning of the wedding of Nizza and Joshua,the sound of soft waves blended with the sound of the conch blown by Reverend Mike. The unity sand ceremony, the romantic vow exchange lovingly looking into each other’s eyes, holding hands, smiling so happily. The ring vows, the blessing, the lei exchange.  Such a memorable wedding ceremony. Rev. Mike announces the new Joshua and Nizza Amphlett. Congratulations and our Mahalo.

Our Hawaii weddings of Aloha

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.
