Weddings, Vow Renewals, Baptisms & Blessings…

Reiki Master, Shalandra Abbey is a Minister/Director for the Universal Brotherhood Movement, Inc., a non-profit corporation and interfaith ministry that Rejoices in the Oneness of Life. She considers Reiki Healing her ministry and contribution for a better world.

Reverend Abbey has been awarded The Degree of Masters of Divinity. Her thesis, to work towards spiritual growth and advancement of her ministry, was the publication of her book, Living a Life of Reiki, From Complete Healthcare to Ultimate Freedom in Day-to-Day Life.

We honor you for whom you are and honor your ceremony as most sacred. As an interfaith ministry it is understood that individuals come from many different spiritual and religious belief systems. It is our joy to create the perfect ceremony that will be a loving reflection of you and what you represent. Ceremonies allow important occasions in our lives to be special and memorable.

As a minister who honors all religions, plus people who have no traditional religion, it allows me to participate more. It is exciting to co-create blessings and personal vows to perform intimate ceremonies. Often after a wedding ceremony, we bless the new home and later the couple may return to renew their vows or baptize a new baby.

Shalandra Abbey,
Wedding & Ceremony Minister & Coordinator

Thank you for our house blessing Shalandra. It was so loving and perfect for the whole family including our cat Miesty. Every day something new and wonderful happens in the house. We are all in a much better place with the new energy.

Your ceremony can include the blowing of the conch shell which means to islanders an important event is about to begin. Hawaiian music, chants and hula dance accompanied by tropical flower adornments are available for your special occasion. Butterflies can even be present. It has been said, “If you whisper a wish to a butterfly, that butterfly would carry the wish on its wings to heaven.”

Distant Reiki treatments can even be used during the event planning process to assist in promoting an overall smooth energy flow. As the wedding date approaches full-table and mini-chair treatments can be provided for the bride and groom and their wedding party to assist with anxiety, allowing a deeper state of relaxation and enjoyment of the ceremonial events. Catering designed especially for you from cakes with no sugar or eggs to surprise dinners on the beach. You dream it, and we create it.

“Our wedding was a dream come true! How could anything that was so easy be so perfect? Celebration Ceremonies provides a truly unique service in Paradise. We hope to be back in five years for our vow renewal ceremony.”

And to remember the occasion Celebration Ceremonies provide experts in photography and videography. Before and after details can also be handled for you. From the special place to call home while visiting the Islands, to hair and makeup assistance, private catered meals, to the booking of our many island adventures which can include; an exciting helicopter ride, boat tour, guided hikes, luaus’ and much more. Hawaii has been called a healing destination for many years. Reiki treatments and classes are provided. After experiencing the deep relaxation of Reiki, you can have the healing ability awakened within your own hands. This provides you a way to give self-treatments and treatments to others. It’s easy to forget to allow time to do nothing while in Hawaii that will also be included in your schedule, because it is an important part of enjoying the special relaxing gift of the Islands.

Weddings are ceremonies remembered for a lifetime whether they are a few privately spoken words on the beach or one of many details, we offer services that reflect much Aloha in Paradise.

“We loved the water sharing ceremony and the exchange of the flower leis. The vows were so special. They were better than what we could have ever hoped for. Thank you for your suggestions and guidance and for taking care of all of the details. This gave us the time to enjoy more of Kauai.”

David and Joan
San Diego, California

“When we arrived on Kauai we didn’t know if we would leave as a couple or as two individuals ready to separately start a new life. After our loving, life revealing Reiki treatments, and your compassionate counseling, we stepped into Reiki training. This empowered us not only as a couple, but allowed us to see our own individual problem areas. You created the most unbelievably perfect vow renewal ceremony that ended by tossing our flower leis in the ocean to remind us to go with the flow of the tides. It has been two years since that day we left Kauai and we are eternally grateful that God sent us to you and your healing island.”
