What is a VOW RENEWAL? In Hawaii a Hawaii vow renewal ceremony is just as popular as Hawaii weddings. A wedding vow renewal is a ceremony where a married couple renew or reaffirm their original marriage vow. This all started in Italy but migrated to the United States in the 1950’s and gained popularity in the 1970’s. Today, Hawaii vow renewals are based on a wedding ceremony with all the American and Hawaiian traditions and customs adapted, It is “I DO, PART TWO”, It can be done for many reasons,wedding anniversaries, like 5, 10, 20, 50 years or whatever meaningful to the married couple. The ceremonies are heartwarming bringing back memories of your original wedding date. The words are not the same, but the feeling of love and atmosphere are the same, but even more intense then the original day. It can be a intimate, just the two of you or your children may be there to enjoy your union. Renewal of commitment to the rest of your future, celebrating all the accomplishments, the joy, the sorrow and most of all the FUTURE. Each couple will remember their new commitment this day in their evolving journey with heartfelt love of ALOHA. But this you can make it with”Your experience and feelings” We share two very happy couples who enjoyed their Hawaii vow renewals ceremony with us recently. Last month Kent and Deborah for Virginia celebrated their twentieth wedding anniversary with a vacation at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. Their original wedding was on April 5, 1999 at Leahi Park. On May 17, 2019 beautiful vows were exchanged at Magic Island with Reverend Michael Nelson officiating. Our happy couple loved the beautiful and meaningful experience. Our first June couple celebrating their twentieth year also with a Hawaii vow renewal was Penny and Mark all the way from Australia. Their wedding was on June 2, 1999 and it was important that their vow renewal be on June 2, 2019. This beautiful couple, away from their children for the first time, enjoyed their renewal with their 2 close friends, Penny’s bridesmaid in 1999. Such powerful and heart warning wedding vow renewals never to be forgotten. A Vow renewal can be enjoyed “JUST BECAUSE” for no special reason, just because I love you yesterday, today, tomorrow and forever.by
Hawaii vow renewals are universal, no matter how long you have been married. It is a beautiful and joyous experience bringing back memories of your original ceremony. Many couples renew their vows every so many years. Sometimes it is a tradition in the family. We were sitting and awaiting the wedding limousine, with minister Reverend Michael Nelson at Magic Island and as the beautiful couple exited, he guessed that it would be their twentieth anniversary. I however guessed ten years, gaging their appearance. I was correct! Hawaii vow renewals after ten years for Sandra and Alonzo was a experience they had been looking forward to. Their two little children were back home in Texas, although they missed them, a beautiful vow renewal and a Hawaii vacation was very nice. Sandra has a happy personality, easy to smile and laugh and a perfect subject for beautiful portraits. White was the basic color for both, such a cute couple in summer white attire. This was suppose to be a SURPRISE for Sandra, and Alonzo really succeeded well in keeping it a secret. When she was having a hair and makeup session this morning, she thought it was going to be for a dinner date. Well, to her surprise, here comes the limousine to pick them up at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. A short drive to Ala Moana Park, proceeding to celebrate renewal of their vows ten years ago in their church. Hawaii vow renewals location at this park is usually with the historic Diamond Head in the background. Today a ocean background toward the west was chosen. Most memorable vow renewal ceremony by Reverend Michael was deeply enjoyed by Alonzo and Sandra and will forever be in their memories. Beautiful experience, this happy and nice couple deserve the best as they round their lives in the next decade. They love to put their foreheads together in gesture of love. After the ceremony, a beautiful limousine ride around Honolulu with champagne sipping. Congratulations and bless you always. The vow renewal of Alonzo and Sandra, December 3. 2018, Honolulu, Hawaii.
From all over the world you hear stories of how wonderful a Hawaii vow renewal has left a lasting impressing on them and their marriage. It is just a nice thing to do. There are no rules to when but many choose anniversary dates to renew their vows. Popular Hawaii vow renewals happen in the summer time. Choosing the fifth, tenth, twenty fifth and fifty years are are very popular and traditional. But the concept of “JUST BECAUSE” anytime, is to us a simply delightful idea. Hawaii vow renewal ceremonies becomes a family affair, including children, grandchildren, etc. That is why the summer months are very popular. Instead of spending money for a large party on important anniversaries, spend it for a trip to Hawaii and have a vow renewal in Hawaii. A family reunion, a vow renewal, a vacation enjoying Hawaii together can be combined to become a lifetime of memories. Today, October 26, 2018 we have a family of three, life together for six years total, enjoying a renewal of vows at Waialae beach Park. There were rainbows in the morning at the beach but just before the wedding, there were several appearances of bright rainbows. A lucky omen, so magical. Limousine service brought Cammie with friends, Clayton arrived with his little son before the limousine arrived. Cammie wore a white strapless gown with a ginger lei. As she stepped out of the limousine she was serenaded by our ukulele player. Clayton greeted her wearing black suit and red tie matching his son. Pink blossoms of petals were scattered on the ground. The conch, opening their Hawaiian vow renewal ceremony, then the Hawaiian wedding song by the singer as the rainbow faded into the atmosphere. Our Hawaiian sand ceremony perfectly new to their experience. Our Hawaiian sand ceremony is created to be very simple but beautiful, includes words of it’s meaning and begin their life together. In this case, the continuous life together. Blessings with some mist from the Hawaiian skies. Floral leis to seal their renewed vows to each other as they go forward. Congratulations, enjoy your celebration at Roy’s Restaurant. Mahalo for sharing your special day with us.

There are many Hawaii vow renewal ceremonies planned as a surprise for their spouse. Fortunately all turned out beautiful and everyone was happy. Giving a great deal of credit to husbands who have successfully planned these occasions without somehow finding out about the secret. Best not to tell the children about it, keep it to yourself and your Hawaii vow renewal planner. We are very good at this with a lot of experience. Andrae and Monique married for ten years, were deciding to spend vacation time with their two daughters in Hawaii. Secretly, Andrae wished to present his wife with a anniversary gift to celebrate their wedded bliss of ten years. This gift was to have a Hawaii vow renewal ceremony on the beach on Oahu. Keeping it a secret was a little difficult since he planned the day for the family for the day and Monique may have other ideas. Anyway, they got here from Fresno, California the day before the scheduled date at Waialae Beach. It was July 12, 2018, a kind of high King tide day, some sunshine but with dark clouds out at sea, indicating rain out there. Being a Saturday, parking lot was full, and Andrae had to park on the street. A beautiful family dressed in Aloha wear except for Monique who looked lovely in dress of ivory color. Their two daughters were going to participate in the sand ceremony and acceptance of a gift of Aloha. But first of all, Monique had no clue of the ceremony. Reverend Michael broked the news that he was there to renew their vows. She was surprised but game. Now the secret was out and their Hawaii vow renewal ceremony will begin. They will cherish forever the experience of getting married again with emotion and tears of happiness. The memories of their original wedding day brought tears.by
A Hawaii vow renewal combined with a family vacation in Hawaii. How exciting for Karen and Geraint as well as their two sons and daughters ages eighteen to ten. Being from far away Wales, they were careful to find a destination Hawaii wedding planner. They would be best comfortable with a local well established planner with years of experience. With so many planners on the internet, some are not operating from Hawaii. After contacting us and getting acquainted with us, Karen felt comfortable working with us. The trust and relationship felt very good. That is why she chose us to plan their very special day. After being together for their happiest twenty-six years, their eighteen years of blissful marriage reminded them of the very day they said I do. A beautiful love story which resulted in being blessed with a daughter and two sons. Wonderful children confirmed and blessed the renewal of vows with a “We will”. Karen chose July 12, 2018 at Honolulu’s park of Ala Moana and the site of Magic Island. We usually do the wedding facing the south shore with Diamond in the background, but we had to alter that since an activity was going on there. On the other side of Magic Island near where the sun sets was chosen. Everyone of them wore Hawaiian attire ready for a Hawaiian style vow renewal ceremony. A memorable and fun Hawaii vow renewal ceremony is a guarantee with our Reverend Michael Nelson. He blew the conch shell in two directions to begin the ceremony with beautiful vows as their children watched with happiness. They will cherish forever the experience, so different from their original wedding, but the feeling were the exact same. Karen and Geraint found the day most fantastic. Celebration at Hilton’s luau. Mahalo for having us.
After marriage as the years go by family and children becomes your life and having a Hawaii vow renewal ceremony with your children present becomes something so very precious. On June 21, 2018, Britni and Nathaniel stationed in Hawaii serving the United States military, enjoyed a very special day as a family. Blissfully married for twelve years, they both wanted to celebrate with a meaningful vow renewal ceremony. The Hawaii vow renewal ceremony was to be held at Waialae Beach Park. It was a beautiful day, the volcanic vog was nearly gone, a beautiful Hawaiian day except for being a bit breezy. Britni was suppose to wear a veil with pink flowers as a tiara, but decided not to because of the breeze. This beautiful couple looked so relaxed dressed stylishly. Nathaniel’s Mother was there to support her family, in fact she ran the music as the couple walked in. Their daughter was the flower girl, and their son was the ring bearer. For them the participation of their children were very important as a family on their Hawaii vow renewal celebration. They had their own musician but he was to perform after the ceremony were done with. A surprise will happen for Nathaniel’s wife. Reverend Michael was there to greet them with Aloha and a memorable ceremony began with the blowing of the conch. Mom ran the music for the march up the aisle, leading the way with flower petals for Mom Britni. Britni and Nathaniel smiling at each other recalling memories of twelve years ago in Las Vegas. The unity sand ceremony, a fond memory with our couple’s sand mixing with the children’s sand. Hawaii vow renewal of unity, a beautiful symbol. Congratulations to Nathaniel and Britni and the best of years to come for your family. Our deepest Mahalo for sharing this day with us.
