Michael Nelson was enjoyed. The high light of the ceremony was the offering of thank by the daughters. Beautiful and heartfelt thank you for who the family are today because of their love and support. It brought tears to Dad’s eyes.

Jennifer and Eric got married twenty years ago in Arizona and are spending another honeymoon in Hawaii. A beautiful memorable idea started to take shape. Let’s have a Hawaii vow renewal ceremony. It will be a romantic get away from their three children for a few days. Jennifer is a teacher and she home schools her daughter and two sons. They chose July 18, 2018 at Magic Island to repeat their vows. Today is their anniversary. She arrived as a bride with a beautiful bridal gown of silk and satin, he looked great in a blue outfit with a vest. Even after twenty years, there is a twinkle in their eyes with love and respect for each other.
Reverend Michael Nelson’s Hawaii vow renewal ceremonies are the best, he always tries to make it personal with what he knows about the couple. All of our Hawaii weddings and vow renewals are performed at these locations, Waialae-Kahala Beach, Magic Island or Waimanalo Bay beach. Jennifer and Eric chose Magic Island as their Hawaii wedding location with the historic Diamond Head in the background. Today unfortunately is a hazy day, none the less it is still a beautiful site. The Hawaiian flair of all of our ceremonies are not unique but we do have our own style with Aloha. The vows were not worded the same but the feelings of emotion were the same. We present the renewed Eric and Jennifer. Congratulations and have fun at the luau.
A milestone anniversary celebrated with a Hawaii vow renewal ceremony, together with their two young sons. Ten years ago on April 16, 2008, Natalie and Michael were married in a chapel in Tasmania. Fond memories of that day were a reminder of their loving journey together as one heart, and in those ten years, two more hearts added. This happy and refined couple are so very close to their two red headed sons that this Hawaii vow renewal ceremony was not only for the parents, but also a Hawaii vow renewal for the children as a family. On April 16, 2018 on the shores of Waialae-Kahala Beach, Natalie and Michael stood with their sons, relaxed in Hawaiian Ohana (family) style. They were dressed casually but very stylish perfect for Hawaii weddings and Hawaii vow renewals.
A beautiful sunny morning, with gentle waves washing up on the sandy beach, we hear the sound of the conch blown by Reverend Nelson. Our ceremony of love and commitment begins with a Hawaiian sand ceremony to continue their mixing of lives forward. The beauty of writing their own renewal vows to each other was heartwarming. The most beautiful part was the surprise “Our Hawaii vow renewal to our sons”. Michael and Natalie wrote special vows to their sons. Each son were given vows separately and awarded the gift of love which is a flower lei. Hugs and kisses followed as well as a Hawaiian lei exchange for Natalie and Michael. What a beautiful and memorable day it was for this wonderful family from Australia. A Hawaii vow renewal will be followed by journey together to Las Vegas, Orlando, San Francisco and Los Angeles before returning to Australia. Mahalo from wedaloha.

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.

Hawaii vow renewals are in great demand all year round. However, the most popular months are June, July, and August. All Hawaii wedding planners offer both Hawaii weddings and Hawaii vow renewals. Vow renewals are celebration of marriage, or as they say “I would do it all over again”. It is a ceremony of married couples to renew or reaffirm their wedding vows. Historically, popularity of vow renewals began in Italy and became popular in the U. S. in the 1970’s. In Hawaii, Hawaii weddings or destination weddings gained popularity in the last 25 years. Hawaii vow renewals followed and at the present time, in the height of enjoyment, many include their children and family members in the celebration.. Most couples plan a Hawaii vow renewal “just because they love each other, to celebrate love, trust, partnership, and appreciation.” Others have a vow renewal ceremony to repair a broken relationship. Then there are also a celebrations of love, a Hawaii vow renewal ceremony after a severe illness of one partner.
Life is short, love is the greatest meaning of Aloha. This is what Karl and Brittney did on October 19, 2017, they enjoyed a Hawaii vow renewal ceremony, and spread the Aloha with their parents and best friends. They were married 5 years ago this day, eloping to Las Vegas. Life was beautiful, until Brittney got seriously ill. Doctors, hospitals, and stress, but they became closer in heart and soul as partners. Karl planned this event, contacting us to plan a vow renewal at Magic Island at Ala Moana Beach Park. It was a secret we help keep. Enjoying a vacation trip to Hawaii Brittney looked beautifully tanned. Her outfit and his outfit were matched in color of tan and dark brown. The meeting of Reverend Mike Nelson, their officiant, who always spread the Aloha. Karl decided on a Hawaii vow renewal package with a twist. Double white orchid leis for his bride and Mom, boutonnieres for the guys and shell leis for others. Bridal bouquet was hand made with tropical flowers (at the last minute), flowers from Walmart. Creative thinking outside the box.
A beautiful tradewind day in Hawaii as Reverend Mike began the ceremony with the blowing of the conch. A very memorable and emotional ceremony with tears of joy. As they spoke their own words of vows, memories of the wedding 5 years ago brought smiles along with tears. Leis were presented as a gift of Aloha as the couple was pronounced as the new renewed Karl and Brittney. The beautiful memories were preserved of this special day by images created in photography. Congratulations and Mahalo for sharing your happiness with us.
