Hawaiian Wedding Service Of Donovan Kanani Cabebe O.C.
No place in the world, but this place, is the most commonest of greeting love. Or as we say in Hawaii ALOHA, The
Hawaiian word for love. This in part is what has brought Hawaii to be known as “the land of
love”. So what better place could their be then this place and this setting to affirm your aloha
for one another. In doing so just as you will be bound together in marriage you will so be bound
forever to this place. As we proceed Let us sound the Pu (conch shell) to the four directions and take but a
moment of silence to acknowledge the spirits of the land and the ancestors of old. In our
hearts let us announce our intention and ask for there blessings.
In Hawaii the giving of a lei is an expression of aloha. Each individual flower that is woven into
the Lei loses none of its’ individual beauty. It‘s beauty is enhanced. Likewise In your marriage,
You do not compromise or lose any of your individual identity and unique beauty, but are
enhanced. Your leis represent the eternal nature of aloha and the never ending circle of life.
may your aloha for each other also be eternal and never ending. As you exchange leis,
face each other touch forehead to forehead and nose to nose and say the
word aloha. This is the traditional greeting or exchange given between two people. It is the
exchanging or more so the mingling of our life force our breath or HA. In Hawaii to be greeted
and to greet someone in this manner Tells them that you Love and Honer them and is
considered to be a display of great Respect.
You are entering into marriage because you know you will belong entirely to each other, one
in mind and heart. You know you will grow more in happiness and more fully as life-mates. No
greater blessing of happiness can come to you than to have this devoted Aloha. As simple as it
may seem, the definition of love is elusive. You’ll find as many interpretations for love as you will
for aloha. The simplicity of the meanings are not in the definition of the word but in living it. It is a
life long commitment, to love each other in your marriage. What you two promise to each
other today are words and promises to be renewed and re-decided each day. Love And your
commitment to one another makes burdens lighter because you divide them. It makes your
joys more intense, because you share them. It makes you stronger. The love that each of you
should aspire towards is a love that expresses itself in patience and kindness.
Is it in this spirit and for this purpose that you two are here today to exchange your marriage

Please face each other and join hands for the exchanging of your vows. As you gaze lovingly into
each others eyes repeat after me:
I, take you, to be my husband/wife my constant friend, my faithful
partner and my one true love from this day forward. I offer you my solemn vow to be your faithful
partner for as long as we both shall live.
The rings you give and receive this day are the symbols of the endless love into which you
enter as husband and wife. Your rings represent the eternal nature of true love. As their
circles are never-ending, so let your commitment to this union also be never-ending.
Place this ring part way on your betrothed's ring finger.
Once again as you gaze lovingly into each others eyes repeat after me:
I give this ring as a symbol of my love that is complete and endless. Let this ring be
a symbol for me and all whom see it of my commitment to you. From this day forward you shall
not walk alone. My heart will be your shelter and my arms will be your home. And with this ring I thee wed.
