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 weddings planned by weddings in Hawaii

Hawaii weddings planned by weddings in Hawaii a blast from Poland to Hawaii. A twelve hour flight with family in tow,  a surf board with “just married” sign, this fun family of Marta Rybicka and Dariusz Zawislak all prepared to get married in Honolulu, Hawaii. Their two beautiful little girls were dressed in casual Aloha wear and so were the bride and the groom in surf shorts.  Such a happy family arrived at the park on May 25, 2017 to be united in matrimony by Reverend Michael Nelson. With the high surf tide, the sands of Kahala beach was wet with waves crashing. Fortunately we were able to use the garden area above the banks of the sea, a altar by the sea we use for our Hawaii weddings.  As Marta and Dariusz stood at the grassy altar, holding hands, everyone watched and listened to the conch shell blown by Reverend Mike, as a welcome to the Aloha of Hawaii weddings.  Most of our Hawaii weddings are in English incorporated with Hawaiian language and Hawaiian customs. Some are in other languages as requested, we do have Japanese, Chinese speaking ministers as well as some Hawaiian/English speaking ministers. Giving their consent to the wedding commitment to enter into marriage, Marta and Dariusz looked deeply into each other’s eyes smiling and glancing at their two daughters.  Beautiful words of love as they vowed to love each other forever.   The rings shined, twinkling in the sun as they were blessed before being placed on their fingers.  Hawaii weddings  always ends with the blessing of the flower leis and blessing of their marriage. The leis were wrapped around their hands clasped together while they were blessed.  Before the presentation of leis which is a symbol of the gift of Aloha, each vowed their love for each other, take care of their children forever, and thanked each other.  The sand ceremony mixing their lives together were part of their promise.  With great joy, Rev Mike announces the new Marta and Dariusz. Congratulations and Mahalo. We enjoyed meeting you and your family. Aloha.
