Male'ana, Heavenly Hawaiian Wedding


Ke Kali Nei Au (Waiting For Thee)

Eia au ke kali nei
Aia la i hea ku'u aloha

This is the moment 
I've waited for 
I can hear my heart singing 
Soon bells will be ringing 

This is the moment 
Of sweet Aloha 
I will love you longer than forever 
Promise me that you will leave me never 

(Words & music by Charles King)


The pure sound of the Hawaiian Conch Shell echoes across the ‘Aina (land) invoking blessings of divine Mana (spiritual energy).
Blowing the Pu (conch shell) true and clear in the four directions, Kahu (Minister) announces the beginning of the sacred wedding ceremony.
Kahu chants the ancient Hawaiian Oli:

“Eia iha no ka maluhia o na lani me kakou a pau”

"May blessings from above rest upon you and remain with you now and forever."

In tune with divine Mana (spiritual energy), Kahi humbly invites Akua (God) and the Aumakuas (ancestral guardian spirits) to join the couple in their celebration of Aloha, to grant them to be united as one, in love forever and to bestow blessings upon all who are gathered.
Often the Aumakuas offer the blessings of their divine Mana by physically manifesting as a Honu (turtle), ‘Io (Hawaiian Hawk) or anuenue (rainbow).

“I Ho’okahi kahi ke aloha ua mau.” 

Be united as one, in love forever.

Maile is the Hawaiian lei of eternal love and represents the umbilical cord to the spiritual world. As the couple drapes Maile Leis around each other, their spirits connect on a deep level. It is the traditional gesture of love, honor, and respect and conveys prosperity, health and blessings.



The sacred ritual unites the couple forever with the Mana of Aloha, the ‘Aina (land) and people of Hawaii.
Magical Hawaiian Menehunes, Aloha and Mana’o (Love and Devotion) convey Hawaii’s Aloha spirit like a gently wafting breeze of love.
Embracing under a Palm tree on a little heat shaped Koa Island, they rejoice in their union. The Koa heart is the foundation of their relationship, representing integrity and strength.


Aloha and Mana’o are wedding dolls, but, above all else, they are a symbol of Hawaii’s great Aloha spirit.

Aloha and Mana’o convey the beautiful passion and tender emotion of true love.

Hele mai ‘oe i kō māua male ‘ana!
(Come to our wedding!)

The pure sound of the Hawaiian Conch Shell echoes across the ‘Aina (land) invoking blessings of divine Mana (spiritual energy).
Blowing the Pu (conch shell) true and clear in the four directions, Kahu (Honored Guardian) announces the beginning of Aloha’s and Mana’o’s sacred Hawaiian wedding ceremony to the Menehune Ohana (family).
Embracing under a Palm tree on a little heat shaped Koa island, Aloha and Mana’o rejoice in their union. The Koa heart is the foundation of their relationship, representing integrity and strength.
Kahi chants the ancient Hawaiian Wedding Oli:


Eia iha no ka maluhia o na lani me kakou a pau.
(May blessings from above rest upon you and remain with you now and forever.)

In tune with divine Mana (spiritual energy), Kahi humbly invites Akua (God) and the Aumakuas (ancestral guardian spirits) to join the Aloha and Mana’o in their celebration of Aloha, to grant them to be united as one, in love forever and to bestow blessings upon the Menehune Ohana.
Suddenly ‘Io, the Hawaiian Hawk, soars majestically through the sky. ‘Io is considered a messenger of God. He is the physical manifestation of Aumakua and offers the blessings of his divine Mana to the couple.
Maile is the Hawaiian lei of eternal love and represents the umbilical cord to the spiritual world. As Aloha and Mana’o drape 
 Maile Leis around each other, their spirits connect on a deep level. It is the traditional gesture of love, honor, and respect. The leis convey prosperity, health and blessings.
The sacred ritual unites the couple forever with the Mana (spiritual energy) of Aloha, the ‘Aina (land) and people of Hawaii.

Aloha and Mana’o channel Hawaii’s Aloha spirit like a gently wafting breeze of love.

After the ceremony, the Menehune Ohana joyfully gathers for the wedding celebration, enjoying their favorite foods, Mai’as (bananas), Kahikis (pineapples) and Taro, wonderful Hawaiian music and enchanting Hula dances. They laugh, eat and dance late into the night, rejoicing in the wonderful wedding Lu’au (party).

Aloha’s and Mana’o’s Tutus (grandmothers) wove their Mana (spiritual energy) and Aloha (love) into the leis they made for the couple.
Aloha wears a Haku (head) lei of Maile and fern leaves, the sweet smelling white and yellow Puakenikeni flowers and the divine red Lehua blossoms from the sacred Hawaiian Ohia tree.
Tutu also made Aloha’s white grass skirt with the matching veil and draped a Maile Lei around her waist.
Mana’o’s Tutu dressed her Mo’opuna Kane (grandson) in the colors of Hawaii: a yellow cape and red Malu (loincloth). She lovingly draped Maile Leis around his head and ankles.
Aloha and Mana’o are about 4” tall fitting in the palm of your hand. Their bodies are made out of stretch cotton and wired for flexibility. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto their faces. Aloha and Mana’o have tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button.
All accessories, including the palm tree and Koa heart, were individually handcrafted.

Embracing on their Koa Island under the Palm tree, Aloha’s and Mana’o’s faces glow with the love they feel for each other.
Aloha and Mana’o are one of a kind collectible display dolls handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls.
They come with their story and a certificate of authenticity.


Aloha and Mana’o convey the beautiful passion and tender emotion of true love.
