End of Summer Hawaii weddings

Aloha, it has been a great summer ride for Hawaii weddings. Thanking everyone for choosing Hawaii for your vacation and/or Hawaii vow renewals, Hawaii weddings. We had so much enjoyment and Aloha as usual. A lot of our couples are matured (40 plus) and have been through a larger wedding ceremony experience before. They love the small simplicity of Hawaii weddings near the beaches of Oahu. The atmosphere and the aura simply cannot be beat. We have a wedding on the last day of August (31) 2017 for the lovely Karen Perman and charming Robert McCarthy from Indianapolis, Indiana. It s a beautiful summer day at Waialae Beach, the tide is up with the upcoming sign of King Tide projected. Three thirty in the afternoon Hawaii weddings in the summer at this time is quite lovely, today the tradewind cooling the air is manageable. At times Hawaii beaches are windy, and hard to predict, our suggestion is to have your hair styled up. We have had complaints about the windy factor but controlling the elements is difficult and we do the best we can. They arrived early with loving family members Dad, Mom, and siblings. Lovely Karen smartly dressed in your lacy creme colored gown, Robert with his charm looked great in blue Aloha shirt and walking shorts. Blue seemed the color prevailing with Mom looking great in blue Hawaiian outfit. She was there holding the ring and tissues for the emotional couple. This family is the nicest polite people. Evidently serving in the military is in the family trait, we are thankful. Reverend Michael Nelson is the presiding minister to present beautiful ceremony of Hawaii weddings, that Karen and Robert will forever remember.  As we gather on the grassy alter, waves bouncing against the rocks, sound of the conch shell to announce their marriage ceremony. Here begins a new life together with participation of a unity sand ceremony, the marriage vows, ring exchange, lei exchange, and blessing with family participation. A beautiful Hawaii beach wedding, presenting the new Karen and Robert McCarthy. Congratulations and Mahalo 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.

Germany with love, Love of Hawaii weddings

Loving couples from Germany bring their love of Hawaii weddings with delightful responses to the uniqueness of the traditional Hawaiian wedding ceremony. 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.

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.
