Maui Labyrinth Wedding Forest

For those who wish to have a uniquely different wedding, while accentuating the spiritual aspect of the marriage ritual, we offer the labyrinth wedding. While the labyrinth has been around for centuries, it has only recently been introduced to wedding ceremonies. The labyrinth is located in a private garden in Haiku, which is on the east side of the island.

The labyrinth is an ancient pattern that has been used for centuries as a tool for self-discovery. The design looks much like a maze; however, it differs in that it has no dead ends or tricks. The labyrinth has a single path into the center and the same path returns back out. These patterns have been found in cathedral floors throughout Europe, where they have been used for centuries as a walking meditation. Variations of the design have been found throughout the world. Regardless of the culture, the use always traces to a connection with Spirit, invoking mystical assistance with an endeavor that is about to be embarked. The walk to the center represents a time of Releasing, the center represents Illumination, and the walk back out reflects the Union with the Divine, returning out into the world to take action from the new perspective, or birth, of the individual.

The symbolism of the labyrinth lends itself beautifully to the marriage ceremony. Metaphorical of a pilgrimage to a sacred place, the journey into the center is a time for letting go of the past in preparation for what is to come. The bride and groom walk into the labyrinth individually, affording you time to become self-observant, to release any past obstacles that may be in your way, and to become fully present and centered by the time you reach the sacred space of the labyrinth's center. Met there by the wedding officiant, the center represents the sacred ground of the heart. Here the ceremony, which is written specifically for the labyrinth wedding, takes place as the two of you join your lives through the ritual of exchanging vows. At the completion of the ceremony, you will join hands and either follow the same path back out, or together create a new path that spirals you back out of the labyrinth. This part of the experience represents the Union, where you emerge from the labyrinth, beginning a new aspect of your journey together as husband and wife. You carry with you the blessings of the Divine to guide you on your way.

Your wedding officiant for the labyrinth wedding will be Eve Eschner Hogan, M.A., D.D., educator, inspirational speaker, and author of Intellectual Foreplay: Making the Right Choice and Being the Right Choice in Relationships. She has studied extensively about the history and meaning of the labyrinth since her first workshop taken in 1996 under Rev. Lauren Artress at the Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. Eve has been facilitating labyrinth workshops since 1997.

Price is for site fee only. Please add one of our wedding packages.
