Having a Hawaiian wedding prayer read at your Hawaii wedding seems like a natural thing to do. The language is so beautiful and Hawaiian prayers are just so lovely.
There are many different kinds of prayers out there to choose from. One of the most popular is using the Our Father or Lord's Prayer in Hawaiian.
Here is the Hawaiian translation of the Our Father.
E ko makou makua iloko o ka lani, e hoanoia kou inoa. E hiki mai kou aupuni; e malamaia kou makemake ma ka honua nei, e like me ia i malamaia ma ka lani la; E haawi mai ia makou i keia la, i ai na makou no keia la. E kala mai hoi ia makou i ka makou lawehala ana, me makou e kala nei i ka poe i lawehala i ka makou. Mai hookuu oe ia makou i ka hoowalewale ia mai; E hoopakele no na e ia makou i ka ina; No ka mea, nou ke aupuni, a me ka mana, a me ka hoonaniia, a mau loa aku. Amene
And in English:
Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. Amen.
