In the Polynesian ‘Way’ of ‘Story Talk’…
I begin with a big ‘group deep Breath’,
then break the ice and get the ball rolling with a wee bit of ‘story talk’ about the conch shell I’m using,
the one my wife The Maui arrying Muse uses, and the one that let go …
I then ‘weave’ this into
A Captivating Original Ceremony that Connects the
Ancient Royal Hawaiian Blessings and 'Legendary' use of
~ Mana ~
Their Divine Power
Connecting Them to the Land, Waters, Sky and
All that there is
The Ancient Royal Hawaiians - The Ali'i
Are said to be a direct blood line to the 'gods'
Nearly their every step was preceded by the blowing of a conch shell -
A call for all to show reverence.
I describe a few of the many uses and the 'meanings' behind the
Ancient Hawaiians use of the conch shell for Important Events...
Especially for the most honored event as
Blessing Two True Lovers in an Everlasting Bonding Commitment.
Here, "I talk a bit of story" about the large Trophy Trident that I am about to use and the nice big Queen Conch my wife Bobbie Jo - The Maui Marrying Muse - uses.
~ During our Sailing Adventures ~
While anchored in a remote part of Tonga, a local villager would paddle his home made boat-like craft out to "talk story" with me, mooch a cup of coffee, and
try to sell me 'a load of craft'
stuff that I already had a boat load of...
(apparently out of all the other boats, I must have had the best coffee ;-)
One day, he said,
He Now has a Cow and needs some good rope.
This time he had a big shell in his 'inventory' &
I had a boat-load of good 'ol spare rope.
My conch shell story always inspires
the Adventuresome Spirit in all my couples
have many questions about our 20,000 + miles of Sailing Adventures,
which I'm always happy to share my time after the ceremony "talking Story"
and answering the many inquisitive questions from those who say they too
have always wanted to sail away from it all...
The whole ceremony integrates
the Hawaiian Style Beach Wedding theme,
which also includes
A Hawaiian Lei Blessing and Exchange,
A Spiritually Hawaiian Ring Blessing
A Vow Exchange in Hawaiian
that I lead my couples thru... Fun stuff

It was a special time & allowed us grow as a family & individually, expanding our worldly views & touching the hearts of new found friends all throught the Polynesia Island Nations.
We've fulfilled our dreams & our hearts were touched by the kindness of nearly everyone we met.
We truly Discovered for ourselves...
the Soul of the South Pacific & the Spirit of Aloha!
I perform my accoustic guitar when ever the occasional gig pops up but mostly play contently in the garden or our new Lanai overlook...forever developing my unique style....
I play a lot of Hawaiian Slack key tunings & use the Island's
Maui Magic to inspire new music...
When we are not doing weddings & editing pix....
I'm quite busy with all the things one
dreams of doing on Maui....
I ride my mountain bike up the Haleakaka Volcano, Surk Ski Kayak all over Maui's waters, Love to commune with da fishies while snorkeling...& take my lumps on the Paintball field with my son - the 'Nearly Pro - dead eye shot :-O
