A Hawaiian ceremony on the beach at sunset?...wow...The Hawaiian culture entails many spiritual elements that would be meaningful for vow renewal. Any of the islands would be wonderful, and LL has several properties from which to choose. The properties could get you in touch with any and all of the wedding contributors you might wish to use...officiant, flowers,leis, reception...whatever. Mazel Tov! Cheers...Marolyn
Thanks Marolyn. I'm liking this idea more and more... I've always resisted the idea of going to Hawaii for the stupid reason that absolutely everyone else I know has been there. As a rule I don't usuallly like to go with the crowds. My style is more off the beaten path, shall we say.
But my husband has always wanted to see Hawaii and a polynesian wedding could be great.
If the beaten path is not for you, Hawaii still has some rather private spots that are paradise. For example, on Maui you could take the harrowing drive to Hana and enjoy the black sand beach for your ceremony. Other islands have unique spots that are still pristine and private. The research might pay off in a big way for you two. You might even find a new venue for LL to offer. Cheers...Marolyn
I can give you another suggestion, you can also go south of Hawaii and consider either somewhere in one of the outer islands of the French Polynesia or Fiji, there are wonderful resorts which are quite nice, specially for more romantic moments like yours. We spend part of our honeymoon in Fiji and saw a wedding ceremomy and it was quite beatiful!
Another place that you might want to consider would be Agra home of the Taj Mahal.I am sure they can arrange an Indian-style ceremony near this beautiful monument which after all is a monument to love!
In line with Jimena's suggestion, you could do a small ceremony on the terrace of the Oberoi Amarvilas, which has amazing views of the Taj. Early in the morning or at sunset are prime times for such a ceremony - the light makes the Taj look pink and glorious.
Pleae let us know what you decide to do as well as what you discover about the Hawaiian ceremonies. Maybe you will find a wonderful LL property for your event. I'm a wedding junkie, so I'd even be interested in pictures. Cheers...Marolyn
