A once in a lifetime travel “journey of love” which included a wedding in Hawaii, for a beautiful couple from Deutschland, Germany. Kerstin W. and David B. took time off from their jobs to enjoy a six months travel journey. Highlight of the travel was getting married in a Hawaii wedding ceremony. Beginning their life together as fiances, traveling and exploring Asia going to Hong Kong, Thailand, singapore, etc. When they left Germany it was a cold December winter, when they return in June, it will be Spring and beginning of warm summer.

A red and white rose french bouquet for Kelly. The pretty bouquet was the star between the two daughters. Reverend Mike’s personal vow renewal ceremony was so very different from their Catholic church wedding of 10 years ago. Memories of that special day were ever present in Kelly and Robert, as they lovingly looked at their two daughters. The blowing of the conch, the unity sand ceremony, the blessing, the rings and the gifting of the orchid leis, all a new experience for this couple from New Jersey.

Highlighting the ceremony was the very special moments with each daughter, expressing words of love. Tears of emotion, and a group hug. We present the newly renewed Robert and Kelly Ann. Congratulations and Mahalo for choosing Hawaii for your vow renewal.  “It was amazing. We were grateful and blessed especially having our girls there”, said Kelly Ann.

 

Hats for Hawaiian Weddings

Here come all of the bridal couple’s loved ones, wearing hats for the beautiful wedding of Jeanette and Donald, and every loved one received a white orchid lei from the couple. The date they will forever remember, March 29, 2018, place of wedding was the beautiful white sandy beach of Waimanalo Bay Beach. Wearing hats at Hawaii weddings on the beach sometimes might not work because of the wind, but this was a beautiful Hawaiian day with calm wind.  Beautiful Jeanette in a stylish white gown, the soles of her shoes were imprinted with “I do”. She carried a cascade bouquet with shades of pink and white roses and sprays of white orchids. Donald looked great in black and white casuals with a hat. The happy wedding entourage wore colors of pink and red printed dresses, black pants and pink shirts for the guys.

The limousine with the bridal party arrived greeted by a singing duet playing the guitar and ukulele. Aloha greetings by our crew of planners, minister, photographer and videographer.  For their Hawaii wedding, they chose the Hawaii Wedding Package that provided everything they had wanted. Our Hawaii package provided our expertise, location, the minister, limousine, music, video, bouquet, unity sand ceremony, leis, conch shell blowing and decorative wedding certificate.

Beautiful memories of the Hawaii wedding ceremony of Jeanette and Donald were captured by our professional photo/video crew. In many cases the video will be shown at a reception back home. Reverend Michael Nelson blows the conch, followed by singing of the Hawaiian wedding song with guitar and ukulele as Jeanette and Donald stroll out of Sherwood forest, down the white sandy beach to meet Reverend Mike.  As the song ends with “I do, I do love you with all my heart”  Reverend extends welcome and congratulations to the couple upon making this commitment called marriage.  Emotion of love to share today is like the tide of the sea. Your deep heartfelt commitment to marriage to create goodness in the world together. “Yes, I do” from Jeanette and Donald. The unity sand ceremony at Hawaii weddings on the beach is like the unity candle ceremony.

Pouring of sand into one container to combine their lives together, hereafter. Hawaii wedding vows of  “I take you to be my beloved wife/husband” then followed by the ring exchange. As they each wear these rings, it reminds them of this special day in Hawaii. Finally the heartfelt .words to each other with the Hawaii lei exchange tradition.  Donald tossed his hat aside before the lei exchange. Ukulele/guitar music and romantic song of love by the musical duo dedicated to the new Donald and Jeanette.  Signing of the marriage certificate and many photos and video followed. Carrying of the bride into the ocean, (not quite) just to the white waves washing up on the beach.  What a memorable Hawaii wedding for the new Donald and Jeanette. Congratulations and Mahalo.

The wedding of Anna and Eddie at beautiful Waimanalo Bay Beach on March 22, 2018 was a dream come true, but staying at a B &B located on the North Shore of Oahu, the drive in took two hours to reach the windward side. Regardless, they were in great spirits greeted with the Aloha spirit of Rev. Mike Nelson and the wedding in Hawaii planners and crew. This happy and adventurous couple were comfortably dressed in European fashion.  They are enjoying everything about Hawaii since they arrived. Their long exciting 40 days road trip began in UK with two feet of snow on the ground flying to San Francisco, driving down the coastal shores of California to Los Angeles. They were impressed with the warm Pacific ocean and the Big Sur. Flying to Oahu for their Hawaii wedding ceremony is the highlight of this dream journey. They will continue their journey flying to Los Angeles and continue forward to Nevada and throughout the rest of the U.S.

A once in a lifetime journey as the newlyweds.  For Eddie and Anna their two hearts became one on this day March 22, 2018 with a beautiful Hawaiian ceremony officiated by Rev. Michael Nelson. The experience of a Hawaii wedding ceremony and the beauty of the Pacific ocean was overwhelming to them.  After the wedding ceremony, the afternoon will be celebrated by going snorkeling at Hanauma Bay. Looking forward to more exciting new adventures, they move forward as husband and wife. Congratulations and Mahalo for being such a delightful couple.

Chelsea and Jonathan, a wonderful fun loving couple from Canada, decided to get married in Hawaii. They chose to enjoy a beach wedding on Oahu, away from the cold weather back home. When they got here, they immediately fell in love with the warm weather, the beauty and the people. For Kamaainas like us, these past weeks have been a little on the chilly side, not to mention the passing showers. For Chelsea and Jonathan, every thing was perfect, they even found out their hotel (Luana) served free wine and cheese, to their delight.

We only have six packages but you can always customize to your own preference. Our largest asset to you is offering you over 100 professionally edited pictures on most of our packages. Our recent couple came all the way from England.

The were extremely happy for the love they felt with the memories of their Hawaii vow renewal ceremony combined with their church wedding 35 years ago. Celebrating 35 years of happiness, after getting married in the Church of England, they created a wonderful life together with  some ups an downs, as all do. Elaine and Chris chose a small but romantic vow renewal ceremony with historic Diamond Head in the background at Magic Island.  It is a gorgeous Hawaiian day on March 1, 2018.  It was Chris who romantically suggested the idea of a Hawaii vow renewal and a honeymoon on Oahu.

Elaine was radiant in a off white lace dress, and Chris was cool in white shirt and khaki walking shorts. A beautiful french bouquet for Elaine with sprays of  pink and purple orchids. As they stood holding hands, Reverend Mike Nelson blew the conch shell to begin their Hawaiian vow renewal ceremony.  Facing each other, Elaine and Chris held hands and enjoyed the beautiful ceremony renewing their vows of 35 years ago.

Chris has had many travels as a engineer for his government. Congratulations and many happy years of celebration.

 

Hawaii Weddings Eloping Trends

As the years go by, the trend of couples eloping to enjoy Hawaii weddings and honeymoon has grown tremendously. The thought of no stress and pressure, away from a big bash at home, it is like escaping and allowing a Hawaii wedding planner to help bring it all together. The combination of a intimate Hawaii wedding ceremony and the enjoyment of a Hawaiian honeymoon became a reality for Vanessa and Bradley. They were already in Hawaii when they booked us to plan this beautiful day.

Hawaii-weddings

After being together for many years and having two little children, it was a family Hawaii beach wedding at Kahala Beach. The changing meaning of the word “elope” from “running away to get married” to the new “small wedding away from home” or “destination wedding”.  When couples elope, most likely it is a secret until they return home. However, some do share their elopement with their immediate love ones; some elope with their families tagging along. For Bradley and Vanessa, the Hawaii wedding and honeymoon was a family one with their children Max and Scarlette. On February 17, 2018, a beautiful clear, serene day, at Kahala Beach. As the sound of gentle waves washing up on the sand, Reverend Michael Nelson blew his conch shell announcing the wedding of Vanessa, Bradley and children.

As the children played in the background,  the two became one with our traditional Hawaiian wedding ceremony, including the exchanging of flower leis as a gift of Aloha. They will enjoy their many precious pictures of this memorable family Hawaii wedding day. Congratulations and Mahalo for sharing your day with us.

Affordable Hawaii Wedding Packages

All planners of Hawaii weddings offer very similar Hawaii wedding packages ranging in prices that may be affordable to your budget. Our choices of Hawaii wedding packages are very affordable, especially if you take advantage of the monthly special.  For my Hawaii wedding, I prefer to preserve the special day of memories with a complete video and photographic coverage. The many tangible goodies are nice to have, but not a priority. Flowers will wilt, the arch and seats are temporary, but the pictures and video of the wedding capture the memories of this special moment and relived many times over the years.

hawaii-wedding-packages

My favorite among the five Hawaii wedding packages we offer, is  the Big Fat Hawaiian package, which includes just the right amount of the fineries to complete a beautiful wedding in Hawaii.  Here is a hint, other then the importance of having a photographic and video crew document your day, having the right minister for your ceremony is very important. He needs the have a sincere Aloha personality to create the aura of a Hawaiian wedding ceremony. He or she needs to have the ability to relax the bridal couple and their love ones to create a Ohana like feeling before starting the ceremony.

My favorite Hawaii wedding location is Waimanalo Bay Beach because of it’s miles of white sandy beach and the scenic ocean beauty. The weekdays are perfect, which is serene with the exception of the sound of the waves on the beach. A wooded area for beautiful photo and video opportunity exists.  Our couple Danielle and Nathan of Keene, New Hampshire chose my favorite wedding package to enjoy at Waimanalo Bay Beach for their wedding on January 17, 2018.  Just the two of them, sharing of their wedding day will follow upon returning home after the honeymoon. This day started with our professional hair and makeup artist arriving to make Danielle feel and look like a princess.

Beautiful in a stylish white/ivory colored gown, and Nathan handsome in a tan outfit with a matching vest, our wedding couple stepped into their limousine at their hotel doorstep. A beautiful ride to the windward side of Oahu, arriving with happy smiles greeted by our minister of Aloha, Reverend Mike Nelson. Ukulele singing in the background by Dereck, capturing the moments were our professional photo/video crew.  A classy floral cascade bouquet and boutonniere were presented to complete their wedding attire. A double white orchid lei were set aside for the traditional Hawaiian lei exchange at the end of the ceremony.

The wedding ceremony of Danielle and Nathan began with the blowing of the conch by Rev. Michael, the ukulele and the Hawaiian wedding song by Dereck. Here comes the bride and groom to meet the minister at the alter.  Continuous photo/video coverage goes on to capture all the moments of this occasion, creating  “Memories of a life time”. The commitment, the unity sand ceremony and their vows of I will love you forever, the exchange of brilliant rings, blessings and offering of the gift of Aloha.  Our Hawaii wedding ceremonies always give the bridal couple the opportunity to say their own vows or say their private words before being pronounced husband and wife, ending with the lei exchange ceremony. A special love song by Dereck  to honor their union as the new Nathan and Danielle. Video coverage continued through out the  photo shoot.  The limousine awaits to whisk the newlyweds on a champagne scenic ride along the coast to their hotel in Waikiki. Celebration and honeymoon has begun. Congratulations and Mahalo for having us.

 

Wedding Stories- Wedding of Hawaii

wedding-of-hawaii

Hawaii vow renewals are about celebrating your love and the continuation of your happy life together, with a ceremony similar to your original wedding day. The wedding vows you made that day may not be the same, but they bear the same or a deeper meaning. Many couples decide to do this after some years of marriage, for instance 5 years, 10 years and so on. Fun and stress free, many couples enjoy this ceremony more then their actual wedding. Some are planned as surprises, some have their traditionally enjoyment of celebrating vow renewals every 5 years. As Hawaii wedding planners, we offer our Hawaii wedding packages to those who are interested in having Hawaii vow renewals.

On February 8, 2018 Janelle and her husband, Drew, along with their two children, arrived at Magic Island at Ala Moana Park. She told him about the vow renewal ceremony as they got out of their Lyft ride. It was a well kept secret, a delightful surprise for him. Happily married for 10 years, a Hawaiian vacation and the icing on the cake, a delightful Hawaii vow renewal with their children as witnesses. They all wore Hawaiian attire, with son and daughter sporting fragrant yellow plumeria leis. One of the leis were taken apart and flowers lay on the grass as altar decoration. Reverend Michael Nelson, reminded them of their commitment from their original vows in a church. Today they stood in Hawaii, with Diamond in the background, their children watching, taking the same vows they did 10 years ago. Words were different, but everything a Hawaii vow renewal ceremony can offer with deep Aloha. Married again in beautiful Hawaii, Janelle an Drew from Bismarck, N. Dakota. Celebration at McDonald, to the joy of their children. Congratulations and Mahalo.
