26th Anniversary Vow Renewal Ceremony

Our congratulations and Mahalo goes to a very sweet couple from San Diego, California. Luis (Alex) and Patricia (Patty).

We found them to be a nice, gentle fun to be with couple. She looked beautiful in a dress similar to a Hawaiian print, he in walking shorts and long sleeve shirt, creating a youthful couple. Greeted by our Reverend Michael Nelson, a immediate friendship developed between Patty, Alex and our crew. A simple Hawaiian ceremony was enjoyed with some tears of happiness. Blowing of the conch by Reverend welcomed them to Magic Island and their intimate ceremony. The vows were not the same as 25 years ago, but the meaning were the same. This Hawaii vow renewal ceremony for Alex and Patty was very special to them and made them feel so very close to each other. This joyful couple will celebrate at Rocky’s at Hilton Hawaiian Village and enjoy their honeymoon around Oahu island.
