The Hawaiian Wedding Lei

The Hawaiian Lei is a symbol of celebration given from one person to another. A lei is draped over one's shoulders and is presented to an individual during special times of celebration or milestone in a person's life, such as a wedding or graduation. The Hawaiian lei is made of flowers, shells, nuts, yarn, beads, and other materials.  Traditional leis are made of leaves and flowers.  

During the wedding lei exchange, a partner gives and receives a lei as a symbol of aloha or love for their partner during their wedding ceremony.  The lei is received with a kiss of love and embrace for their partner.  When the lei is received, the partner is also welcoming their spouse into their heart for eternity.

In Hawaii, when a lei is given, by custom, it is to be worn all day.

What Our Couples Say

"Deanna at Kona Wedding Officiant is amazing. My parents were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary and my siblings and I wanted to have a vow renewal ceremony for them on the beach with traditional Hawaiian chants. Everything was absolutely perfect from the beautiful beach location to her soothing voice. Thank You, Deanna for helping my siblings and I, give my parents a day they will remember."
