Hand-Binding Ceremony

Updated: Feb 16, 2020

Hand Binding Ceremony

This beautiful couple, Laura and Diane, wanted to perform an old tradition for their wedding ceremony instead of exchanging rings, a Hand-Binding Ceremony. Thanks to these two, I had the privilege of not only learning about, but also performing this ceremony that established the term “tying the knot.”

Laura and Diane chose to use three lovely ribbons for their ceremony which I tied into a figure eight around their clasped right hands. Once tied, I said some words of commitment for the couple, handed each of them an end of the ribbon, and they pulled the ribbons to ‘tie the knot’ on their love!

Laura and Diane will keep this ribbon as a keepsake of their wedding day and always have the memory of tying the knot at Holualoa Beach. I too will remember my first Hand-Binding Ceremony thanks to this couple. Mahalo Laura and Diane!

Owner of Kona Wedding Officiant

Meet Deanna

Kona Wedding Officiant’s licensed minister, Deanna, believes that Aloha is the most important element of a wedding in Hawaii.  Aloha has many meanings, but most of all, it means love.  Deanna specializes in Hawaiian traditions and enjoys creating intimate, romantic ceremonies for couples.  All couples and denominations are welcome in marriage and vow renewal at Kona Wedding Officiant. 

Deanna believes that every wedding is a gift.  She is passionate about bringing couples together in the sacred bond of marriage.  Ceremonies are personalized to couples and additional elements such as Blowing Of The Pu are welcomed without additional fees. To create an ideal experience, all weddings are performed on secluded beaches whenever possible.

Deanna has a degree in Philosophy and Religion.  She has a strong background in Hawaiian cultures and traditions through her past work as a teacher in the state of Hawaii.  Deanna had the privilege to teach Hawaiian studies and Hawaiian history.  There she was given the gift of working with Hawaiian Kumus where she learned protocols and traditions such as lei making, chants, and songs.  Deanna continues to learn new Hawaiian Oli, Mele, and Pule to bring to her ceremonies. Before moving to Hawaii, back in New Jersey, Deanna worked with hundreds of brides and grooms in a different way, as a professional wedding photographer.
