Dressed in formal wedding attire, they were greeted by Reverend Michael, with guitar music in the air and camera crews in action. A cascade bouquet of pink  and white roses, with cascades of white orchids highlighted her attire.

Wedding Stories- 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.

Hawaii wedding with a hiccup

We, as Hawaii wedding planners, are ready for any emergencies that might happen on our planned Hawaii weddings. January 13, 2018 began as a beautiful Saturday morning, people preparing to enjoy the Martin Luther King weekend.

It was the Hawaii wedding day of Ashley and Daegan, scheduled for 2:00 in the afternoon at Waialae-Kahala Beach. Waialae golf course was beginning to swing with the Sony golf tournament to finish off the weekend. The red alert came over the phone “emergency alert, ballistic missile threat, this is not a drill”. There was out of control panic all over Hawaii, until the word was out that it was not true.  It was not even Friday, the 13th, it was Saturday the 13th.

Hawaii must regroup on their emergency threat plan.  Things got worse when the Golf channel called to strike at the Sony open. The wedding of beautiful Ashley and Daegan turned out to be a wonderful wedding ceremony by Reverend Michael Nelson.  Ashley and Daegan happly arrived at the park looking calm and did not even mention the incident that almost messed up their Hawaii wedding day, She looked lovely in a lace dress, as they happily walked holding hands strolling the sandy beach. The waves were gentle that day, they found the atmosphere so different then their home State of Kansas.

Their quiet and intimate Hawaiian wedding ceremony began with the blowing of the conch. To begin uniting their lives together, a unity sand ceremony was held. Beautiful vows of promise, followed by exchanging  rings of beauty filled with meaning. The Hawaiian lei exchange is the gift of love. Ashley and Daegen promised each other their love by their written vows. Leis were accepted as gifts of Aloha as they were pronounced the new Daegan and Ashley. Congratulations to a sweet couple. Thank you both for serving our country in the Marine Corp and Air Force. They will join each other in Hawaii in a few months.

 

Hawaii weddings, always a love story

Every love story is beautiful, but our favorites are from our Hawaii weddings gallery we have enjoyed for over 30 years. We quote our bride, Lori “Yesterday is the wind passing. Today is a gift. Tomorrow is a promised hope”.  A very special gift of Aloha from the groom to his wife to be, bought just the morning of the wedding, a Hawaiian jewelry set of pendant and ear rings. Lori and Troy, a wine loving couple from Indiana, decided they wanted a intimate Hawaii beach wedding, to have treasured memories of a romantic Hawaii wedding and honeymoon. With so many Hawaii wedding planners to choose from it is quite a task, but we recommend contacting the Hawaii Business Bureau for recommendation.

For Lori and Troy, we became Facebook friends sometime earlier and our friendship grew into trust. It was so nice to finally meet on their special day. A intimate Hawaii wedding, a wedding ceremony on the beach of Oahu, just the two of them. Their dream was to enjoy their honeymoon and first Thanks giving together in Hawaii. The important wish for them was to return home to share their experience of Hawaii weddings with their love ones. Having a professional videographer in combination with a photographer was a wise choice.

Capturing the ceremony with sound and emotions, they will treasure the memories. Time flies so fast that you miss a lot of activity of your Hawaii wedding ceremony. Choosing our package called Plumeria Plus which included limousine service, minister, lots of pictures, sand ceremony and white leis for the lei exchange. Adding the videographer, ukulele singer, a haku head lei and a bouquet completed her total package. They chose Nov.17, 2017 for their Hawaii beach wedding at Kahala Beach. Captured by our wedding camera crew, the arrival of the bride and groom greeted by Reverend Michael Nelson with ukulele music in the background. Bride looked radiant, dressed in white chiffon with silver slippers. Complementing her outfit was a haku head lei with white and dark pink roses and matching french bouquet with color or orange, light pink, and dark pink roses. Groom looked cool and comfortable in white shirt and walking shorts. Happily they strolled hand in hand in the sand, toward the grassy altar we use for our Hawaii weddings at Kahala Beach.

Their Hawaiian wedding began with the blowing of the conch, the Hawaiian wedding song with ukulele and the welcome of Aloha from Rev. Mike. To begin their journey together, a unity sand ceremony was performed.  A emotional and happy vow exchange with beautiful rings blessed were captured by our camera crew. A Hawaiian lei exchange with words of love to each other before being pronounced husband and wife.

A beautiful love song dedicated to the new Troy and Lori by our singer/ukulele player, as the happy couple began their first dance together. Beautiful Hawaiian dance dip at the end with happy laughter.  Congratulations and Aloha. A luau to celebrate tonight. The beautiful video and photographs of their wedding in Hawaii will be enjoyed and replayed many times in their lives to come. We present the love story of the new Lori and Troy.
