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.

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.

Although most Hawaii weddings have basically the same style from wedding planners to the next one, each provide different ministers who have their own styles. The charisma of the crew will be key to all Hawaii weddings. Photography and video styles differ but they are all professionals of creativity. Very much in love, eyes for each other only, Anika Gieseke and Soeren Gemuth from Germany experienced their wedding on August, 24, 2017 at Kahala Beach with their Mom’s, Dad’s and brother enjoying the ceremony so different then theirs in Germany. They all got a kick out of our pronounciation of their names, and our accents and customs. We had so much fun getting to know about them, about Hawaii and Germany. Parents did not know about the Hawaii weddings planned and when they found out, rushed to make arrangements to surprise them to attend. It certainly was a extremely nice surprise. Pretty Anika looked so happy in off white dress and Soeren looked handsome in dark blue outfit. Their styles of clothes are very European and very stylish. All their loved ones had special kind of lei sewn with purple and white orchid petals with green bows.  Reverend Michael Nelson who has some knowledge of German language, had some fun with his charismatic ways. The brother of Soeren filmed the Hawaiian wedding ceremony so they could share it with friends at home. The conch shell was heard as they totally enjoyed the experience. The Hawaiian unity sand ceremony, the blessing in Hawaiian language, and the orchid leis, offering the gift of Aloha. These were all traditionally products of our Hawaii weddings. The vows and ring exchange  are all regular wedding traditions. The presentation of the newly weds, Soeren and Anika!!! Congratulations and Mahalo. Another happy couple from Germany.

Hawaii weddings at Magic Island

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.
