Our ceremonies follow a basic traditional western and American wedding format of appropriate length for a beach wedding or vow renewal. Pretty straight forward and simple.
First, let's get this out of the way. Hawaiians did not get married and there is no traditional or authentic Hawaiian wedding ceremony so, when you see a "Kahu" or any other minister advertising a "traditional" Hawaiian wedding ceremony, it's anything else but.
With that said, you can include Hawaiian elements like we do, the same that many local Hawaiian couples add, to give it a Hawaiian feel.
- Marriage: Choose for a marriage or civil union ceremony legal in Hawaii, the United States, and other countries. This requires a marriage license issued by the State of Hawaii.
- Vow Renewal: Choose if you are already married and want to celebrate your marriage as a vow renewal.
- Marriage Ceremony Recreation: Choose if you are already married but, want to have the ceremony you didn't have the first time or just to have a ceremony in Hawaii or for your family who doesn't know you've been married for 6 months already LOL.
- Romantic: A non-religious ceremony with no reference to God.
FYI: Our ministers do multiple weddings in a day and if they slip-up, you can correct it but, if the mere mention of "God" greatly offends you, choose another website.
- Romantic Christian non-denominational: A non-denominational Christian based ceremony.
FYI: Our minister's do not preach, "lay hands", read scripture, sing hymns, etc. as part of the ceremony (unless you ask for it).
- Hawaiian accented: We include Hawaiian elements to give your ceremony a uniquely Hawaiian feel including a conch shell blowing (called a "Pu") by the minister, and Hawaiian theme minister attire or wearing of a lei.
FYI: Hawaiians did not get married. There is no traditional Hawaiian wedding. They did perform human sacrifice LOL.
