Beautiful August Hawaii Wedding

beautiful-august-hawaii-wedding

For us Hawaii is beautiful all year long, but for those who love the sun and the tradewind, August is one of the best months to have their Hawaii wedding ceremony. It is a popular month for both locals and destination Hawaii weddings, so booking early is a good idea. Upcoming date of Aug. 18, 2018  (8/18/18) is “the big date” couples have secured.

Our Hawaii wedding couple today, Stephanie and Joseph of Fresno, California chose Aug. 1, 2018 (8/1/18) which is easy to remember. Staying in Waikiki during their honeymoon they chose Waialae Beach Park as their Hawaii wedding location. A wise choice was to choose a package with a limousine service, which picked them up at the hotel and then returned them happily married. Here comes the bride and groom and being met, with Aloha from Rev. Michael Nelson and Roger. Stephanie and Joseph are a very attractive couple  dressed in a modern flair. A cascade bouquet of pinkish-ivory like roses  and hydrangea awaits her.

A black shiny kukui nut lei for Joseph. A beautiful wedding on the sands of Hawaii is about to take place. The happy couple walks up the white bridge to the sandy altar where the Reverend waits. Sounding of the conch begins the Hawaiian ceremony of Stephanie and Joseph. A memorable wedding ceremony, just the two of them, so romantic, happily participating in the Hawaiian sand ceremony. The vows were most beautiful, the rings was gorgeous sparkling in the sun. With the traditional flower lei exchange, they became the new Joseph and Stephanie, kissing each other on both cheeks. Marriage certificates were signed and sealed. Many romantic wedding portraits were created for the newly weds, Joseph and Stephanie. A champagne limo ride back to the hotel. Celebration on the catamaran coming up. Congratulations guys!

 

Hawaii Wedding Dream Came True

Hawaii Wedding

A free spirit couple from Poland traveling through out the United States stopped in Hawaii to have a Hawaii wedding ceremony. Jakub and Natalia booked their wedding plans in Hawaii as they traveled through out the U. S. choosing May 4, 2018 as their special date. Natalia loves the beautiful white sandy beaches and the blue/green ocean with little surrounding islands in between. They chose to have their most important day of their lives to get married at Waimanalo Bay Beach. The happy couple looked like a prince and his beautiful princess bride.

He looked great in walking shorts with white shirt and a fragrant green maile lei. He also added a fashionable hat. Reverend Mike’s Hawaiian ceremony and words will always be a memory cherished as they travel further into their venture as husband and wife. Beautiful photos and mementos as Natalia and Jakub said “I do take thee”. Jakub carried his bride and swirled her around. A perfect beginning to their life together. They will visit San Francisco, Las Vega, Tampa & Cleveland before Jakub heads for a conference in New Orleans. Congratulations and Mahalo.

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.

Hawaii Weddings with Aloha Gestures

Our Hawaii weddings are filled with Aloha, love and joyous Ohana (family) celebrations. But a beautiful “Aloha gesture” from a fellow wedding planner was a blessing on the last day of December 2017. We would like to share with you, our story of the beautiful Hawaii wedding of Sandra and Mikesa at Kahala Beach. Most Hawaii wedding planners do plan weddings for gay couples, but it is more difficult to find a minister to do the ceremony.

hawaii-weddings-with-aloha-gestures

For one reason or another, not all ministers offer gay wedding ceremonies.  In most cases, we can identify couples for gay weddings by their names. However in this case our communication got lost.  Our minister arrived but graciously recused himself. A real blessing for us, an angel saved this beautiful wedding day for Sandra and Mikesa.  Another Hawaii wedding planner/minister was at the park for her wedding couple and offered her Aloha gesture. Although we are in the same business, we are all friends and from time to time help each other out. Hawaii’s Aloha gesture is alive and we are always happy to do the right thing to spread the Aloha. A true angel of Aloha, thank you Reverend Leah of Hawaiian eye weddings. Our couple was happy and thankfull.

Arrival by limousine, they were very nervous but were lovingly supported by their love ones. Milesa, beautiful in a stylish-fitted white/ivory dress and Sandra, very mod in a ivory colored tuxedo posed for beautiful portraits before the wedding ceremony. Waiting for Reverend Leah to finish her couple’s wedding, there was time for relaxation, and doing the photo shoot.  Nervousness disappeared to smiles of happiness. Reverend Leah greeted our couple with sweetness and open arms of Aloha. A serene, beautiful day, gentle waves and a beautiful intimate Hawaii wedding ceremony by Reverend Leah. Thank you, Leah for saving our Hawaii wedding day, blessing our last day of 2017. Sandra and Mikesa were happily congratulated by their love ones. We are so happy for you, and thank you ever so much for supporting us.  A wedding in Hawaii presents the new Sandra and Mikesa of Hawaii.

 

Hawaii blessing of marriage or Hawaii weddings

hawaii-blessing-of-marriage-or-hawaii-weddings

Lately, articles about “fake Hawaii weddings” have been published. These are not fake marriages, it is more like a Hawaii wedding blessing. These happy couples either elope or get married at home but want to experience a Hawaii wedding ceremony during their honeymoon. Many of the Asian couples are definitely married in Japan or wherever, but they desire what they call “photographic memories” during their honeymoon called “photo shoots”. I would say the correct term might be Hawaii vow renewals or Hawaii wedding blessings.

No marriage applications are needed from the State of Hawaii for these so called Hawaii weddings. Amy and Jay were married at the court house, but wanted the magical touch of Hawaii weddings. They wisely decided to splurge a little more on a Hawaii wedding package called the Paradise package. Sharing their Hawaii wedding ceremony with their love ones at home, was especially important for both of them. Photographic memories with a video of their wedding ceremony, limousine service, guitar/singer, a beautiful french bouquet and for Amy a white orchid haku head lei. Orchid leis were included for the offering of leis to each other, added to blowing of the conch and a unity sand ceremony.

Stylish white wedding gown for Amy with a veil, and a cream colored suit for Jay. Reverend Michael Nelson began the ceremony by blowing the conch, the guitar/singer played and sang the Hawaiian wedding song as the couple strolled to the altar. A beautiful day on December 30, 2017 at Magic Island, Ala Moana. Their limousine awaited to take them on a champagne sipping ride around Honolulu. Congratulations and Mahalo to the new Jay and Amy.

Ever Us Hawaii weddings

Ever Us Hawaii weddings

Eloping?  Wedding and honeymoon combination in mind?  Destination weddings anyone? Hawaii is the perfect choice without  outrageous costs. Hawaii weddings and Hawaii vow renewals of all different levels are planned daily by the many Hawaii wedding planners to help make your special day a memorable one.  In our over 30 years of experience planning Hawaii weddings and Hawaii beach weddings, we have noticed the wedding trends change. Years ago, most of the wedding planning were initiated by the bride or the mother of the bride. Gradually, the groom and Dad’s got involved. We found this as a wonderful transition, the groom contacting the wedding planner, and shares the planning with his bride.  Many of our Hawaii weddings are planned by the groom. The young men stationed in Hawaii serving the military are very much involved with the planning of their weddings since their brides do not reside in Hawaii yet.  Over all, more grooms are very involved in their wedding planning. We share two beautiful Hawaii wedding stories which took place on the white sandy beach of Waimanalo Bay, Sherwood Forest. These weddings were planned by the grooms with our help and beautiful memories were created.

The wedding of Kristen and Calvin, December 12, 2017, with limousine service, the Plumeria Plus Hawaii wedding package was the choice.  Arriving together with their love ones, a happy group of ten, Kristen and Calvin radiated with happiness.  They greeted Reverend Mike with a handshake as they stepped out of their limo. Kristen was beautiful in a white stylish gown and Calvin was looked great in gray trousers with white shirt. A princess in the making, as Reverend Mike helped Calvin with the Haku head lei for the bride. Multicolored beautiful floral Haku head lei, a crown of pink, orange and green flowers.

We present to you, our Hawaiian princess bride, Kristen.  Waimanalo Bay Beach, the beautiful location of many Hawaii weddings will begin the “forever us” for Calvin and Kristen. Dad walks his daughter down the aisle as her Mom wipes tears from her eyes. Their love ones supporting them with love and smiles. A beautiful Hawaiian ceremony by Reverend Mike with conch blowing, unity sand ceremony and lei exchange. Most important of all were their beautiful vows to each other and ring exchange. As they were pronounced the new Calvin and Kristen, they walked back up the aisle and did a dance dip. Everyone laughed and cheered with joy. A memorable wedding ceremony.  Champagne bubbling in the limousine, as they enjoyed their ride back to their vacation rental. Congratulations and Mahalo for having us.

December 19, 2017 for Marlea and Ed of Ohio, a Hawaii wedding at Waimanalo Bay Beach with our Plumeria Package, arriving on two black SVUs with their family and love ones. Ed’s thoughts of Hawaii weddings and honeymoons became a reality when he contacted us to help him plan their special day.  Hawaii’s chill in the air and forecast of rain did not bother Marlea and Ed, it was heaven compared to the cold in Ohio. Beautiful Marlea held a bouquet specially made by a friend, yellow clusters of orchid with heirloom ancestral photos. Everyone received a lei of orchids and the guys kukui nut leis. Clouds showed rain was coming, we had to beat the rain. Everyone was happy and excited, Marlea’s son and daughter, Ed’s brother and family, a friend playing the guitar. Reverend Mike presented a beautiful wedding ceremony for the new Ed and Marlea. After the papers were signed and the photos were taken, the rain came. A good luck omen for the Hawaii wedding of Ed and Marlea. Congratulations and thank you for having us.
