A aloha weekend was celebrated¬†by Sophia and Tracy in Riverside California. Great Officiant Lisa Smith had the honor of performing the nuptials for this lovely couple they’re both in United States Army and have been on three tours of duty each they’ll be moving to Hawaii very soon so it was quite appropriate to have a beautiful Hawaiian style wedding. We opened the ceremony with the traditional sounding of the conch shell. This symbolizes to all that a very important ceremony is about to start. ¬†Sophia arrived in a beautiful 57 Chevy driven by her father. They parked curbside and Sophia was escorted by her father and given away to her anxiously awaiting Groom in his full dress Army uniform. We were all happy and relived to see the sun come out for the most beautiful afternoon. We had a Lei exchange along with a Sand Ceremony we had the perfect Vows, I Do’s and ring exchange and as I pronounced them husband and wife the neighborhood ice cream man decided to drive by in all his glory blasting ice cream music ! ¬†The timing was perfect. ¬†All the guest were socializing at the Tiki Social to be followed by dinner and entertainment a flame eater fire dancer and Hula girls were on the way to get the party started Best Wishes and Aloha to Tracy And Sophia ¬†

I may only do Hawaiian / beach weddings from now on. The Aloha Spirit was strong at the David Baker golf course in Fountain Valley. Guests cheered and sounded off loudly , and a conch shell was sounded to the four directions as the groom, Gene Ahlo, waited anxiously for his bride, DeEtte Lucero. She arrived, radiant in white, and they exchanged Leis with parents. I sprinkled Hawaiian words and phrases through the ceremony to honor the heritage of both families, including part of the vows.  All were thrilled at the kiss and final Alooooooo-ha!

Hawaiian and Filipino style wedding ceremony brings the spirit of aloha to this couple and their family

First off I got to tell you how much I love doing weddings at Yamashiro in Hollywood. as the preferred wedding officiant at that venue I love to get to work with the couples they send me.
Today Alfeo and Farrah had me bring aspects of the Hawaiian and Philippine cultures together.

Starting with me lighting a memorial candle to represent the brides mother; I then welcomed the guests.

The processional began and all were in place. They exchanged the beautiful shell and kakui nut necklaces. Then they passed roses to their mothers and grandmothers.
Their sponsors placed the veil and cord upon them while I explained their significance. Then exchanged the aras coins.

After their vows, I do's and ring exchange the did a unity candle ceremony filled by a prayer.

It was a beautiful light hearted wedding ceremony and they couldn't be happier.

We are pictured here "Throwing the Shaka" a hawaiian tradition showing approval and thanks.

20131020 Cara & Ryan
Ryan & Cara were married at the Hilton Oceanfront Resort in Carlsbad. They had a modified Hawaiian theme ceremony incorporating the Conch shell and lei exchange with each other as well as giving one to each of their parents.

As the guest came in they each wrote on a stone that was placed in a large vase.

During the ceremony they shared a drink of water from the same glass then filled the vase the stones were in. They then lit candles and floated on in the vase.
