WAIKIKI, HONOLULU, HAWAII – This Valentine’s Day, love is in the air at Outrigger Resorts with a complimentary Waikiki Beach vow renewal ceremony available exclusively to guests of Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort and Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort. Lovebirds staying at these two popular Oahu resorts can reaffirm their love directly on the sands of Waikiki Beach in front of the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort with world-famous Diamond Head as their witness. The ceremony is inspired by Hoao Paa, an ancient Hawaii custom where a couple is bound in lasting union.
“Our guests have fallen head-over-heels for our signature vow renewal ceremonies, and we are thrilled to enable couples to rekindle their love in this unique and beautiful way, not only on Valentine’s Day, but all yearlong,” said Bitsy Kelley, vice president of corporate communications for Outrigger Enterprises Group. “Outrigger’s iconic beachfront locations provide the perfect setting to ‘hoi hou ke aloha,’ or fall in love all over again.”
The unique Hawaiian ceremony opens with a Hawaiian chant to cleanse the past, present and future so that love may reign. Couples then exchange vows in the Hawaiian language and a gentle sprinkling of seawater preserves their love everlasting. After being sealed with a kiss, the ceremony concludes with a performance of the beautiful Hawaiian Wedding Song, accompanied by a hula. As a special memento of the Valentine’s Day celebration, after the ceremony is completed, couples may take a picture with the officiant and hula dancer and receive one complimentary photo. A commemorative certificate will also be presented to each couple to remember the day, and complimentary Champagne and sparkling cider will be served.
Registration for the Valentine’s Day program will begin at 7:30 a.m. on Feb. 14, 2015, at Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort. The Hawaiian ceremony is open to guests of Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort and Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort. Couples must sign up to participate at their respective hotel’s concierge or front desk by 3 p.m. on the day prior to the ceremony.
