An alter is made of Ti Leaves as the Ti plant is a sacred plant in Hawaii, offering spiritual protection.
The Ti Leaves are arranged on the ground along with a scatter of orchids. Set on top is a Koa bowl and coconut shells that are used in the "Water Ceremony." Along side of the Koa bowl are two orchid and ti leaf leis for the "Lei Ceremony." There is also a Conch Shell and Ukulele.
The Ceremonies open with the beckoning call of the conch shell and include Hawaiian chants, prayers and blessings in English and Hawaiian. These are combined with your individual religious or spiritual style of choice.
"The Hawaiian Wedding Song" is sung and played on ukulele at the conclusion of the ceremony.
After congratulating the married couple, "Hawaii Aloha" is sung and played on the ukulele. This is a special Hawaiian song that is sung at all the State and local gatherings in Hawaii.
