Outrigger Kiahuna Plantation on the Hawaiian island of Kauai has been offering a free vow renewal ceremony for guests and they’ve now extended the offer through December 21, 2010. The non-denominational ceremony is aailable only for Outrigger Kiahuna Plantation guests.
The ceremony takes place every other Thursday afternoon at 4:00 p.m. in a garden setting of green lawns, a reflective pond, exotic orchids and swaying palms. The special moment begins with couples exchanging complimentary fresh flower lei. The conch shell sounds and the kahu (Hawaiian minister) performs a Hawaiian chant with an English translation.
Couples learn the meaning and significance of Ha, or the breath of life, as they exchange vows with a special kiss. Throughout the ceremony, couples are serenaded with soft Hawaiian slack key guitar music, and when the ceremony is done, couples are presented with a keepsake certificate to commemorate the special day.
To maintain its uniqueness and intimacy, each vow renewal ceremony is open to six couples only and couples must be legally married to participate. Reservations are required and can be made no more than two weeks in advance of the preferred ceremony date by calling Outrigger Kiahuna Plantation’s front desk at 808-742-6411 (long-distance charges apply) or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
