Aloha is an action – to use the essence of love to further creation.
Book now! Maui weddings beginning in the fall of 2021!
Your wedding or renewal of vows on Maui will no doubt be one of the most significant events of your life. Having officiated hundreds of weddings, I have observed that because there is so much planning that goes into a wedding (cake, tuxedos, menu etc.), one of most important aspects – the wedding ceremony itself – is often overlooked by many couples.
Marriage is about entering into a new way of being or the creation of a new entity – you as husband and wife (or husband and husband, wife and wife etc.). Because of the importance of this commitment, it is vital that each couple acknowledges this paradigm shift ceremonially with consciousness and care.
As an ordained interfaith minister, my training honors all spiritual and faith traditions. Whether you want a Hawaiian-themed wedding, one that honors a specific spiritual or faith tradition, or a ceremony that simply celebrates the power of love, we will collaborate together in such a way, that the individual personality of each couple will shine through the words I speak, the vows that you take, and the experience that you share with your friends and family.
Every ceremony is specifically customized for each couple.
After you have chosen me as your wedding officiant, I will interview you, based on your preference individually or as a couple. I will also provide you with a detailed questionnaire that each person will fill out separately about different aspects of your relationship – your history, where you met, what you love and admire about the other person, humorous anecdotes, and what words you would like to hear in the ceremony, and those that you don’t resonate.
Then, I will take all the information that you provide, as well your preferences about the participation of other participants (i.e. specific readings or musical selections you may want to include etc), and create a customized and personalized ceremony and a set of vows that will turn your wedding into an experience that you and your your loved ones will never forget.
I am looking forward to bringing the magic of aloha to you on your special day.
