❤️ You may write your own words of Love to say during the ring exchange portion of the ceremony or I can create something for you to say.
❤️ Popular island wedding traditions like a Lei Exchange, Ha Breath of Life, or Sand Unity ceremony can be incorporated into your wedding at no additional charge. You would provide the leis for the lei exchange or for the sand unity. I have wooden bowls you may use upon request if you want to incorporate a sand unity or you may provide your own.

❤️ On the day of your wedding, after the ceremony, I certify the marriage online with the State of Hawaii making a legal record of your marriage. The State will email you a few days after the wedding with a link to your downloadable marriage certificate which is a legal document that can be used for insurance and military housing.
❤️ I am happy to incorporate special requests or other wedding traditions into your ceremony to make it personal and meaningful for you. I can also incorporate a special theme you have selected for your wedding into the ceremony.
