What is something UNIQUE about your company?
I perform special Hawaiian blessings approved by the Native Hawaiian community. I blow the pu (conch shell). I speak Native Hawaiian authentically (not just reading words). I am known for my diverse ceremonies which include a wide range of cultural sentiments such as cord/veil/coin ceremony, handfasting, sand ceremony, and non Hawaiian ceremonies.
How did you get started in ?weddings and can you provide a little history about your company?
I have worked in virtually every wedding vendor position except flowers and cakes. I have worked for a wedding photographer, I've worked as a DJ/emcee, makeup artist, wedding planner and now I have come full circle with what I love most as a marriage officiant/celebrant.
What is ONE thing you REALLY want brides and grooms to know about you?
