LOST WEDDING RING NORTH SHORE HAWAII FOUND

  • from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)

This ring find started from a phone call from my wife. On Saturday afternoon I decided to take our two kids to the beach as she was going to a gender reveal which I decide not go to. While she was at the gender reveal it turned into a surprise wedding. During the transition some family and friends set up the runway where the bride and groom would walk down to say their vows and within minutes the altar was set. My wife along with everyone else was in shock to say the least. Emotions ran high as there was excitement  in the air. At 2:45pm the bride walked down the aisle as her soon to be husband waited for her at the edge of the sand. As the Kahu (Pastor/Officiant) passed the rings to the groom during the ceremony the wedding band fell into the sand but they continued in with the ceremony which ended with the gender reveal, IT’S A BOY!! . But immediately after celebration everyone frantically began looking for the lost wedding band in the sand. That’s when I got a phone call from my wife. I was on the other side of the island with our two children swimming. She explain to me what happened and I comforted my wife and let her know that I am packing up the kids and heading to the house to get the equipment and would be there shortly. My wife in return let the bride know that help was on the way. And that brought her much comfort. The logistics of getting the kids in the car, driving home, getting the equipment and driving through traffic to get to the lost wedding band before the sun goes down and find parking on a weekend is nothing short of a miracle. I arrive at the beach where the kids and I are greeted by my wife and the bride. They escort us down to the place where they believe the ring is at the edge of the runway. I turn on my equinox and started the search. After three sweeps I get a solid tone and ask what am I looking for? Silver ? Gold? Because on my display screen I’m getting a solid silver tone. The bride’s friend runs over to her and gets the other ring and secures it in both hands as she runs back to me. I take hold of the other ring and carefully look inside and in bedded in the ring is 14 K. I give back the ring and let her know I will continue to search and as she turns to walk away I get a loud gold tone and tell her “I have it” The mother of the bride who was also there stopped herself in her tracks and looks at me. I get on one knee and as I remove the sand from the surface low and behold a white gold ring with diamonds. What was lost is now found. I hold up the ring and everyone gave a loud cheer! Another successful recovery and another happy couple. keep spreading the Aloha …

    My words couldn’t fully express my utmost gratitude for Lanaki’s skills and service!! During the ceremony, my husband and I noticed that although the engagement ring was found in the sand, the wedding band was still missing. He tells me not to worry, we will find it after the ceremony. The ceremony was beautiful and I was fully present in the moment, but afterwards my mind went back to the band. When we couldn’t find it with an initial search in the sand, Lanaki’s wife advised us to stop looking with our hands because we were probably making it worse. She told me that she called her husband, Lanaki, and he was on the way. When he arrived on site to look for the ring, I just couldn’t believe how quickly he was able to find it, within minutes!! I was in shock, a happy shock, but shocked none the less. I know that the ability to find the ring that quickly takes skill! If you’re in need of someone to find your ring, I would highly recommend Lanaki! I was definitely relieved and super ecstatic that he found the wedding band. It was the perfect end to our beautiful wedding surprise/gender reveal. Mahalo plenty from the bottom of my heart, Lanaki! We will never forget the role you played on our special day.
