Hawaiian Vow Renewal Ceremony

Ho‘i hou ke aloha. Fall in love all over again.

Complimentary vow renewal ceremonies are offered weekly to registered guests of Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort and Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort. We invite you to renew your vows in a unique Hawaiian ceremony, with the rising sun, the ocean and the beach as your witnesses. Ho‘ao Pa‘a was the ancient custom by which a couple was bound in lasting union. We utilize many of its powerful elements in our Vow Renewal Ceremony.

Ho‘i hou ke aloha
To fall in love all over again
This is the theme of the ceremony itself, with the oral traditions of chant and prayer.

Puka mai ka hikina a ka la
The rising of the eastern sun
The ceremony begins at the start of a new day, putting you in touch with the elements...
the sand at your feet, waves gently lapping on the shore, soft breezes touching your skin.

Ho‘oma‘ema‘eana
The cleansing of life
The ceremonial leader walks into the ocean and offers a powerful chant to cleanse 
the past, present and future, so that love may reign over all things.

Pikai
Sprinkling
Preserving their love everlasting as written biblically.

Ka honihoni
The kiss
The most intimate component in expressing total emotion is the sharing of inner breath.

Mele aloha
The song and dance of love
The gift of love, prosperity and wellness is presented in the poetry of music and dance.

Ka palapala oia‘i‘o
The Hawaiian certification
The certificate signifies that you were honored in this Hawaiian ceremony 
according to the words of wisdom and of the ancients.

Ho‘ailona
Signs & revelation
We ask that you take what you have experienced wholeheartedly, and share it with the world.
