Thank you for reviewing your ceremony script. Will you be doing personal vows to each other? You may read them, that’s perfectly fine. I understand you’ll be doing lei presentation to family and lei exchange with each other. Along with sand ceremony for the both of you? Is that correct? I’ve revised your script, just a little, and added Paul onto this email thread for verification. We can continue to work on your script if you wish to edit, add or delete any of the elements to suit your personalities.

Hope to talk again soon, Mahalo, Rev. Kimo PS If you wish to get together before your ceremony date for a little chat, I’d be happy to meet you. Thank you
