ABOUT ME
Firstly, congratulations to the happy couple!
I'm sure you're looking for the "right fit" in your choice of officiant. 
So here's a little bit about me
Maui Wedding
E Komo Mai
"Welcome"

It is my hope that this site, "Always Aloha Maui Weddings", will be of great assistance in the planning of your  Wedding, Commitment Ceremony, Civil Union or Vow Renewal.
Just follow the links at the top of the page to find info on planning your day to remember! 


 I have been performing ceremonies as an ordained minister for over 20 yrs and Maui is definitely the place where your ceremony will come together under the auspiciousness of the Valley Isle. You will easily see the truth behind the phrase
Maui No Ka Oi
(Maui Is The Best)

After all, even the word Hawai'i holds great meaning:
"Ha" is Breath of Life
"Wai" is Water
"I" is Spirit
"Spirit Breathed Life Upon The Waters"

So come, the island awaits you.


About Me
I was ordained in 1995 into the Sanctuary of the Beloved, in the Order of Melchizedek. This is a nondenominational institution that honors the belief's of those held by others. This allows me to assist you in your wedding here on Maui, by tailoring the ceremony to your particular needs. Whether you're wanting a simple ceremony on the beach for two or choosing a service with one hundred of your closest friends and family.


I work with couples in two distinct ways.
I offer a simple ceremony on the beach which takes about 20 min to a half hour. This includes your beach permit and assistance in registering for your wedding, composing a personalized ceremony and vows and filing your paperwork with the State of Hawaii.


If you are looking for something more elaborate or need assistance planning out the details, I also work with some amazing wedding coordinators on the island. I can refer you if your needs are for a coordinator. Just let your coordinator know that you'd like them to contract with me as your officiant.

I can also connect you with photographers, hairsylists and makeup artists


Professionally, I hold a Master's Degree in Counseling and am  the Clinical Director at
Maui AIDS Foundation
as well as a Therapeutic Coach with InAwakening.
Part of the profit I make from every ceremony is given back to the community which serves me, whether it is the Aina (the land)
or the Kama'aina (the people)

It always brings me great joy to be a part of a couple's ceremonial announcement to the world that,
"We Love Each Other"
I look forward to being a part of that special day with you.

Mahalo
