Kmet's Vow Renewal at North Shore

A raw footage video of John and Sue a north shore wedding presided by Rev. Elias Parker, Mihana singing and a chant doing opening "Oli Aloha", and video by Steven Young of Dream Wedding Hawaii. 

In a vow renewal, Rev. Parker believes that rings once blessed should not be removed or re-blessed for the rings represents your never ending years of eternal love together.

In this case John and Suzanne chose to present new rings not only renewing their vows but also their love to one another.

Eric and Kelly at Paliku Gardens, Kualoa Ranch, June 6, 2010

After presiding five wedding ceremonies at Ko'Olina chapel, Rev. Parker arrives at Kualoa Ranch for Eric and Kelly's wedding. A beautiful setting of both mauka and makai (mountain and ocean). This request/recommendation to preside over Eric's and Kelly's wedding came from Mike Higuchi, a videographer and friend of Rev. Parker.

A brief counseling with the couple.

Face to Face, "He alo he alo".
Breath exchange, the"Ha"

Included a sand ceremony

A beautiful day for a wedding at Kualoa Ranch, KeAkua was surely there with spiritual words  from Rev. Parker, touched every heart with joy and happiness.

As Rev. Parker announces Eric and Kelly as husband and wife, family stands up for the couples first walk into married life. Congratulations to Eric and Kelly may you both have a wonderful life together.

 As the rain came, it was Rev. Parker's time to show what God was all about. He mentioned while everyone ran under the tents and into the building, over the microphone. "This is a very special moment. Children are the very ones that understand the concept, that when it rains, they simply run outside and play in the rain. As we grow older we look for cover. Just give me 2 minutes.  Everyone, I'm going to show you how powerful God is and use him as an example. He made it rain so that everyone would run under the tents and covering,... but here's the joy in this... this is for everyone to be together and for us
to join hands and pray."

Here's a short clip of what everyone witnessed.
