BY LUANA MAITLAND — Guests at the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort and Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort were treated to a Hawaiian Vow Renewal Ceremony on the beach in celebration of Valentine’s Day on Sunday, Feb. 14, at 8 a.m.
The couples shared an intimate moment as they exchanged a special vow in Hawaiian to each other:
Aloha au ia oe, no keia la, no keia po, a mau loa.
I love you, from this day, from this night, forever more.
E pili mai aloha kaua.
We two will cling to love together.
Aloha aku no, aloha mai no.
I give my love to you, you give your love to me.
Mahalo o ke Akua no keia la.
Thanks be to God for this day.
The ceremony concluded with a hula, a complimentary photo and a glass of Champagne.
Yet another one of Outrigger’s authentic experiences, true to our heritage and the spirit and culture of Hawaii and offered from the heart.
