Traditional Hawaiian Wedding

Previous wedding   Next wedding

A wedding in ancient Hawaii was always full of great fanfare. Royal Kahilis (handmade feather standards, a symbol of Hawaiian royalty) were carried in a procession. A conch shell is blown in all directions to summon the Gods and begin the ceremony. Musicians and the beautiful language of Hula tell the story of the couple in song and dance. Our Traditional Hawaiian Wedding includes all of the royal ceremony of ancient Hawaii.

The procession begins with the blowing of the conch shell. Kahili bearers, minister, hula dancer and the joyous couple proceed from a small alcove to a beautiful Maui beach at sunset as guests await the procession.

The ceremony begins with the playing of the Hawaiian Wedding Song as the hula dancer performs for you. Besides the Hawaiian Wedding Song your musician will play two songs of your choice during the ceremony - and another after the ceremony.

Our ministers are non denominational and marry all faiths. Our associate ministers are: Reverend Alalani Hill, an expert on Hawaiian wedding protocol, who will perform either religious or non religious ceremonies, and Rev. Kamuela Rodrigues, a Hawaiian minister who performs either a Christian or non religious ceremony. If you wish, we can put you in touch any of our ministers prior to your ceremony.

Your flowers are the Traditional Hawaiian wedding flowers. Maile leaf lei wrapped with fragrant tuberose flowers for the groom, and a two strand tuberose lei, or woven white ginger lei and beautiful deluxe cascading bridal bouquet for the bride. If you wish we can substitute other flower leis you prefer which match your color scheme. You may also order a variety of bridesmaids bouquets, nosegays, corsages, hair flowers, Haku head leis or boutonnieres at an additional cost. Just let us know what your needs are and we´ll be happy to arrange it for you.

Your deluxe photography includes pre-ceremony, ceremony, formal and candid shots after the ceremony. Your photography package includes 48 4x6-sized images on a CD. Your photographer will take a number of shots of which you may choose the final 48 for your CD.
