1. The Hawaiian Sand Ceremony is the perfect complement to a beach wedding or vow renewal, and is our most popular unity ceremony. Bride and Groom scoop sand from beneath one another’s feet to symbolize their individuality, and then pour their sand together into a heart-shaped vessel to signify the intermingling of their two separate lives into one new unit, indivisible. The sand and heart-shaped vessel are yours to keep as a memento of your special day and a reminder that your two lives are now eternally one. If either or both of you bring children into the marriage, they can also be included and will have the opportunity to scoop sand from beneath the feet of the bride and groom and add it to the center container, representing that they too are eternally linked in this newly formed family.
