My name is Michaela Lehuanani Larson,
I am Hawaiian, a Kama'aina, child of this land.
I come from a traditional Hawaiian Ohana which provides knowledge and insight needed when performing the Hawaiian elements in your ceremony.
A former Hawaiian studies teacher, and school in the art of hula, your ceremony comes with years of experience.
All ceremonies include authentic Hawaiian elements designed for everyone.
The spirit of aloha is intended to be experience and shared by everyone.
All ceremonies are filled with aloha and always authentic.
"When you give out love, love comes back in return".
With local island knowledge and insight, I can help you design your ceremony with all you need to find the right people and location to make your event filled with aloha!
