Everett and Rotanda returned to the Kula Botanical Gardens of Maui for their 15 year vow renewal. (see last week’s blog entry, if you haven’t already) They loved their first wedding so much they recreated it as close as possible, by choosing the same Maui wedding planner and minister (myself), the same site and the same love song. They even repeated some of the same photo poses, which demonstrate they even look the same now as then.
One thing changed: Their love has grown even more passionate and beautiful:)

#mauivowrenewal

It makes me so happy to write about the wedding of Rotanda and Everett and their vow renewal 15 years later. They are sweethearts to each other and to all who meet them. I loved their first wedding at the Kula Botanical Gardens 15 years ago and was so touched by their love and devotion to each other, and their bright, sunny outlook on life.
So I was completely thrilled and honored when Rotanda called me to say she wanted to do a vow renewal in the same place and with me as a minister again. It was wonderful!
Below are photos from their original Maui wedding.

Alana and Casey came with their family to celebrate their wedding Maui Style on 505 Front Street Beach. The day was perfect everyone enjoyed the beauty of the blue sky, waves, and bright afternoon sun.
Alana and Casey enjoyed their heartfelt wedding ceremony and receiving the best wishes of their exuberant family members. The children were very thrilled to play in the sand, while Casey and Alana posed for their post-wedding photos, taken by Erica Tait. Everyone enjoyed the music of Rev. Kai Akin.
It was a wonderful wedding and a beautiful day.

"I now pronounce you man and wife!" #justmauid

There are few things in this world as beautiful as a wedding celebrated on a sunset beach by two people truly in love. Travis and Kimberly were a perfect example of this beauty and wonder.
Everything worked together so well to create this wedding ceremony. The beach was empty, the weather perfect, the wedding attire perfect, the couple beautiful, but most of all Kimberly and Travis’ love created a magic bubble of light and wonder that was a joy to witness. Desiree Maher captured this golden time with great skill and sensitivity.

Kimberly and Travis wanted a wedding full of love and originality. They chose our Eloper’s Simple and Sweet beach wedding.  Travis and Kimberly looked wonderful in their white cotton wedding wear, their simple elegance enhancing the pure love they radiated, and they decided to have they reception in a spring farm from mintspringsfarm.net which was a perfect location for this.
I liked Kimberly and Travis reading their own handwritten vows to one another. Each was so moved by the other’s declarations of love. They brought tears to my eyes too.
Maui shed its blessings upon this couple with a private cove at Aloha Beach and perfect weather. I will always remember this very poignant wedding.  Photography by Desiree Maher.

"We're Married" #mauibeachwedding

Natica and AJ enjoyed a very loving and beautiful beach wedding and then enjoyed romantic moments on the beach that Desiree Maher captured in her lovely photos. AJ and Natica truly appreciated the beauty of their chosen Maui beach in the golden pre-sunset glow.
Afterwards, they frolicked around different parts of the beautiful beach park, enjoying the feeling of being “just mauied”.
I predict a wonderful life, full of love and adventure for AJ and Natica and a return to Maui in the not too distant future.

AJ and Natica dreamed of their Maui wedding for a long time and finally the day arrived. It was a beautiful and perfect day for a beach wedding. Natica was a gorgeous bride and AJ a very handsome groom. Most importantly, their hearts were filled with love and joy.
Their ceremony, performed by Rev. Ayesha Sandra Lee, began with the Hawaiian invocation and lei exchange. Natica and Aj exchanged heartfelt vows and gave one another their wedding rings. Rev Ayesha then gave the special Hawaiian blessing. Photographer Desiree Maher captured the special moments with artistry and aloha.

#hawaiianleiexchange

Maile-ti leaf leis above.

 

The Hawaiian wedding lei exchange is a beautiful tradition to add to your wedding. Beginning a wedding with this lovely two thousand-year-old tradition invokes ease, joy and appreciation for the Hawaiian way. It is very romantic and causes everyone to relax and smile.
The Lei exchange between bride and groom is part of every wedding ceremony or renewal that Merry Maui weddings does (unless requested otherwise, which hardly ever happens). Many types of leis can be employed, including floral, leafy shells, nuts and feathers. Leis can be chosen to enhance any wedding theme or color.
Traditionally, the minister instructs the couple in the simple ceremony, which involves a short blessing in the Hawaiian language, the couple placing the lei over each others heads, and finishing with an aloha, meaning I love you and a kiss. Some couples prefer the ceremony at the end of the wedding, as they are waiting to exchange a kiss. Most, however, enjoy the Hawaiian custom of kissing at the beginning, end and any time between of a wedding. It produces a feeling of warmth and happiness.
Sometimes, family and guests are also included in the lei exchange which is wonderful for everyone. The Hawaiian lei exchange is a perfect way to celebrate your Maui wedding, Hawaiian style.
