Although Kahu Pomaika‘i offers Hawaiian wedding services performed from a choice of numerous exquisite and sacred locations (including, but not limited to the Kahala beach, Lanikai beach and the North Shore) she is also open to any location that has special meaning to the couple.
Kahu Pomaika`i uses the Hawaiian tradition of Ho`oponopono ( to make right; to put in order; rectify ) as a means to release things that no longer serve a purpose for the couple, so they can be exclusively bonded to one another, and the past (is allowed to) fly free. It is done with great love and forgiveness.
Lei ceremonies are a popular request among couples. This ceremony involves two open-ended leis worn around the couples’ necks, then tied together, symbolizing two lives intertwining as one. Ring ceremonies are also often requested, and in this ceremony both rings are placed in a sacred calabash bowl and then passed around to all members of the wedding party for blessing through the use of each person’s Ha or “breath of life.” This special ritual incorporates family and friends into the sacredness of the wedding ceremony.
The conch shell or "Pu" can be blown at the beginning and end of the ceremony, a fitting touch at an oceanside wedding, so popular in Hawai`i.
