Our wedding and vow renewal ceremonies on Kauai and Oahu are performed by State of Hawaii certified wedding officiants. We offer traditional and contemporary ceremonies which honor all faiths.
The ceremony is the heart of your Hawaii wedding package or vow renewal celebration. If you have guests at your Hawaii Wedding, it is the time to declare your commitment to one another in the company of your family and friends. Or, if you are “just we two”, it is your declaration in the company of the Universe. And what more beautiful place to do that than the gorgeous tropical islands of Hawaii.
At In Heaven Weddings, our ceremonies seek to honor the traditions dear to each couple. Through each ceremony our wedding couples express their love and commitment in the way that best expresses their own convictions, wishes, and hearts. As soon as we have a date reserved for you we will send you a sample ceremony, sample readings from many of the world’s sacred traditions, and a vow writing support page in case you would like to write something personal to say to one another.
As a Hawaiian wedding planner, the ceremony we most often celebrate would be described as spiritual rather than strictly religious. It is lovely, gracious and reverent.
If you would prefer a Hawaii wedding ceremony which reflects your own religious tradition, we are happy to offer that. We have ceremonies which honor:
- The Christian tradition
- The Jewish tradition
- The Muslim tradition
- The Hindu tradition
- The Buddhist tradition
- The ancient Hawaiian tradition
- A combination of any of these traditions
We also offer:
- A non-religious ceremony
- A hand-fasting ceremony
- A commitment ceremony
We are happy to work with you to create the ceremony which will best say what youd like as you declare your love and the intention to live together joyfully in a sacred covenant.
From the ceremony, A Time of Thanksgiving:
I believe we are each as persons more beautiful than we know or see. May you find that beauty each within yourself and each within the other through your life together.
From the ceremony, The Words of Welcome:
You bring the fullness of your hearts as a treasure to share with one another. You bring the dreams which bind you together. You bring that spirit which is uniquely your own and out of which will grow the reality of your life together.
A Hawaiian Pule (prayer) which is part of our Circle of Blessing:
Ka malamalama o ke Akua e ho'opuni mai oukou.
The light of God surrounds you.
Ka mana o ke Akua e ho'opakele mai oukou
The love of God enfolds you,
Ke alo o ke Akua e malama mai oukou
The power of God protects you,
Mai kahi oukou e hele aku ai he Akua no
The presence of the God watches over you.
Wherever you are, God is!
