(A fun ceremony for the beach or backyard) 

Aloha,

 

Blowing of the Conch shell to announce the beginning of a new voyage and to scare away evil spirits (or crazy wedding guests)

We are gathered here today to celebrate one of life's greatest moments, The Joining of 2 hearts. In this ceremony today we will witness the joining GROOM/BRIDE and GROOM/BRIDE in marriage.

If there is anyone present who has just cause why this couple should not be united let them speak now or forever hold their peace.

 

Who gives this man/woman to be married today (Optional)

PLEASE BE SEATED

 

The Hawaiian word for love is Aloha. Today we’ve come together to celebrate the special Aloha that exists between Groom’s/Bride's Name and Groom's/Bride’s Name and their desire to make their Aloha eternal through the commitment marriage. Groom’s/Bride's Name and Groom's/Bride’s Name you are entering into marriage because you want to be together. You are marrying because you know you will grow more in happiness and Aloha more fully as life-mates. You will belong entirely to each other, one in mind, one in heart, and in all things. No greater blessing of happiness can come to you than to have this devoted Aloha, which you now publicly affirm. Keep this understanding of your marriage alive in the days ahead. May your Aloha continuously grow truer and more wonderful with each day you enjoy together.

 

Lei Exchange

At this time I would like to have you present to each other these leis. In Hawaii we exchange leis as a symbol of our love. The beautifully crafted lei with its hand-picked flowers and twine, carefully bonded together with love, is a reflection of your love and Aloha for one another. As you exchange these leis you will begin to weave your lei in life together with love. And now, with loving aloha (island style) please present your leis to one another with a smile and a kiss upon each other's cheek and an Aloha

 

A good marriage must be created.

In marriage the "little" things are the big things.

It is never being too old to hold hands.

It is remembering to say, ”I love you" at least once a day.

It is never going to sleep angry.

It is standing together and facing the world.

It is speaking words of appreciation, and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.

It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.

It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow.

It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.

It is not only marrying the right person -- it is being the right partner

 

VOWS (face each other and hold hands)(repeat after me)

I, GROOM’S/BRIDE'S NAME take you GROOM'S/BRIDE’S NAME to be my husband/wife, my partner in life and my one true love. I will cherish our friendship and love you today, tomorrow, and forever.

I will trust you and honor you

I will laugh with you and cry with you.

I will love you faithfully

Through the best and the worst,

Through the difficult and the easy.

Whatever may come I will always be there.

As I have given you my hand to hold

So I give you my life to keep

GROOM’S/BRIDE'S NAME AND GROOM'S/BRIDE’S NAME I would ask that you always treat yourself and each other with respect, and remind yourselves often of what brought you together today.

Give the highest priority to the tenderness, gentleness and kindness that your marriage deserves. When frustration and difficulty assail your marriage - as they do to every relationship at one time or another - focus on what still seems right between you, not only the part that seems wrong.

This way, when clouds of trouble hide the sun in your lives and you lose sight of it for a moment, you can remember that the sun is still there. And if each of you will take responsibility for the quality of your life together, it will be marked by abundance and happiness.

 

I Do’s

GROOM’s/BRIDE'S NAME , do you take GROOM'S/BRIDE’S NAME to be your Husband/Wife? ("I do")

Do you promise to love, honor, cherish and protect her, forsaking all others and holding only unto her forevermore? ("I do")

 

GROOM'S/BRIDE’S NAME , do you take GROOM’S/BRIDE'S NAME to be your Husband/Wife? ("I do")

Do you promise to love, honor, cherish and protect him/her, forsaking all others and holding only unto him/her forevermore? ("I do")

 

Hand Lei Ceremony

GROOM'S/BRIDE’S NAME , please face GROOM’S/BRIDE'S NAME , and hold his/her hands,

(Officiant places the leis over their hands)

These are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and vibrant with love, that are holding yours on your wedding day, as he/she promises to love you all the days of his life.

These are the hands that will work alongside yours, as together you build your future, as you laugh and cry, as you share your innermost secrets and dreams.

These are the hands that will work long hours for you and your new family

These are that hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, for a lifetime of happiness.

These are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears from your eyes: tears of sorrow and tears of joy

These are the hands that will hold each child in tender love, soothing them through illness and hurt, supporting and encouraging them along the way, and knowing when it is time to let go

These are the hands that will massage tension from you neck and back in the evenings after you?ve both had a long hard day.

These are the hands that will hold you tight as you struggle through difficult times

These are the hands that will comfort you when you are sick, or console you when you are grieving.

 

May they always be held by one another. Give them the strength to hold on during the storms of stress and the dark of disillusionment. Keep them tender and gentle as they nurture each other in their wondrous love.

Help these hands to continue building a relationship rich in caring, and devoted in reaching for your perfection. May Groom/Bride and Groom/Bride see their four hands as healer, protector, shelter and guide.

 

Ring Exchange (who has the rings) (repeat after me)

The ring is a symbol of the unbroken circle of love. Love freely given has no beginning and no end, no giver and no receiver for each is the giver and each is the receiver. May these rings always remind you of the vows you have taken.

I Groom’s/Bride's Name , take thee, GROOM'S/BRIDE’S NAME to be my Husband/Wife- To have and to hold, in sickness and in health, for richer or for poorer, in joy and sorrow, and I promise My love to you. And with this ring, I take you as my Husband/Wife, for as long as we both shall live.

I GROOM'S/BRIDE’S NAME , take thee Groom’s/Bride's Name , to be my Husband/Wife. To have and to hold, in sickness and in health, for richer or for poorer, in joy and sorrow, and I promise My love to you. And with this ring, I take you as my husband/wife, for as long as we both shall live.

 

Sand Ceremony

GROOM’S/BRIDE'S NAME and GROOM'S/BRIDE’S NAME you have just sealed your relationship by the giving and receiving of rings and this is a pledge between two people who agree that they will commit themselves to one another throughout their lives.

Today, this relationship is also symbolized through the pouring of these two individual containers of sand. One, representing you, GROOM’S/BRIDE'S NAME and One Representing you GROOM'S/BRIDE’S NAME and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be.

Please Blend the Sand

As these two containers of sand are poured into the third container, the individual containers of sand will no longer exist, but will be joined together as one.

Just as these grains of sand can never be separated, our prayer for you today is that your lives together would be blended like the seven seas and may your love swirl around each other like the changing tides.

 

Closing

To make your relationship work will take love. This is the core of your marriage and why you are here today.

It will take trust, to know, that in your hearts, you truly want what is best for each other.

It will take dedication, to stay open to one another - and to learn and grow together.

It will take faith, to go forward together, without knowing exactly what the future brings. And it will take commitment, to hold true to the journey you both have pledged to today.

 

Pronouncement of couple as married.

Today you have exchanged vows, leis, I dos, rings, blended the sand and have Pledged your Aloha to each other. So, By the power vested in me I now pronounce you . . . . . . .

You may kiss your Groom/Bride.

I would like to introduce the happy couple
