Hawaiian Wedding Ceremony

The Hawaiian ceremony  is the most popular. You have the option of ending it with a Christian prayer or keeping it non-religious, it’s up to you. It will start with Oli Aloha, a chant preparing the space or the people for a blessing.  You may also opt to include a traditional Hawaiian ring blessing. In it, the rings are placed in a Hawaiian wood bowl that the bride holds. The minister then blesses the rings with a ti leaf dipped in the saltwater.  Please advise us well in advance if you want this option.

Jewish Maui Wedding Ceremony

We at Hawaii Wedding cater to anyone who wants to wed on Maui. Aside from a traditional Christian wedding and a non-religious ceremony, we also offer a Jewish Maui Wedding Ceremony. Please note that a licensed officiant performs the ceremony and not a Rabbi.

The officiant starts with welcoming the guests and the couple. Prayers would then follow. In a Jewish wedding ceremony, the couple does not exchange vows. Instead, the officiant asks for consent from the bride and groom. Afterward, they exchange rings. Then comes the drinking of the wine, in which the officiate recites the Sheva Berachot first before the couple drink from the Kiddush cup. Finally, the ceremony concludes with the customary breaking of the glass. Mazal tov! See text of the ceremony here.

Vow Renewal Ceremonies

We also offer vow renewal ceremonies for couples who want to commemorate their long-lasting love.

A vow renewal ceremony is similar to a wedding ceremony, with some additions. So if you’re looking to renew your vows, you’ll first need to select a ceremony from the list below:

To these ceremonies listed above, the officiant utters an additional message to the couple before the vow and ring exchange. This message recognizes and reflects upon the couple’s first time they made their vows and their marriage journey. The officiant also asks the couple to reaffirm their marriage vows to one another. For vow renewals, you may also choose to follow our options of traditional and contemporary. Or you may also choose to write your own vows. You may also ask whether or not to add religious prayers to your vow renewal ceremony.

Additional Readings

Traditional weddings usually have a wedding reading. A family member or a friend typically performs the reading after the officiant has done the introductions. It’s a touching way to convey what love or marriage means to you! So if you want to make your wedding extra heartwarming, we can provide additional readings about commitment and marriage. You may also choose your own that we can incorporate into the ceremony.

Our Wedding Ceremonies

We at Hawaii Wedding wrote our ceremonies way back in the early 1990s. Later on, we realized that not everyone wants a Christian ceremony. And we respect that choice. After all, not everyone who wants to experience a Maui wedding is religious nor practice the Christian faith.

That’s why we added the spiritual non-religious wedding ceremony. It’s for couples that still want a beautiful ceremony without a religious aspect involved. Even so though, our ceremony still does bring spirituality to the wedding.

On the other hand, many couples who are Christian also like our Hawaiian wedding ceremony. So if you wish, we can add a Christian prayer at the end of the Hawaiian ceremony. This way, you’ll get a combination of both ceremonies. This is particularly good for couples in which one person is religious, and the other is not as much. This makes it an excellent compromise.

There is also a sweet and straightforward civil ceremony for those who prefer it that way. Not too much pomp, only a humble yet beautiful ceremony.

And because your Maui wedding or vow renewal is your special day, we have absolutely no problem if you want to alter any wording from the ceremony. In fact, we encourage you to add or replace anything in the ceremonies to make it truly your day. It’s your wedding or vow renewal, and you can have it however you want.
