Weddings, Civil Unions & Vow Renewals
by Calley O’Neill

Calley invites clear communication with both of you, which allows time for her to design your wedding - the sweetest and most sacred of all ceremonies. The process begins with an email questionnaire, and develops through e-mail, phone and personal sharing. This gives you a chance to imagine the ceremony you want and remember the thoughtful touches. The process gives Calley time to design your ceremony in a way you will never forget. These unique wedding ceremonies and vow renewals are stress free, peaceful and wondrous! Relaxation, joy, lightheartedness and personal meaning are the key elements that Calley fosters.
In past weddings, Calley has included Christian customs, Jewish traditions, Hawaiian ways and always the silence and spirit of nature. Hawaiian style weddings may include Calley's chanting, Hawaiian music, an exchange of leis, a woven lauhala marriage mat, a toast of the Earth's purest water from the coconut and blessings by sea salt or seawater. The flavor and style of the wedding, including lightness and humor, stories, Bible verses and readings, music and song are derived from the couple's personal vision, history, culture and expression. You may choose to write your own vows or choose sensitively written traditional vows, which are sacred, simple and beautiful.
In vow renewals, this ceremony does inspire a rejuvenating spark – a living remembrance of the depth of love and experience that the couple has shared.
