  • Honestly, we couldn't have had a better officiant. Michaela is a very special woman - she has a great energy and is just amazing. The ceremony she conducted was incredibly heartfelt and touching. I love all the Hawaiian aspects in her ceremony - from the conch shell to the chanting to our lei exchange - we were in awe. It can be hard choosing an officiant, especially when planning a destination wedding. Trust me, Michaela is the best - you will not be disappointed!

    Mahalo Jennifer for such a beautiful review and recommendation. Your ohana was great! Everyone was so warm and made me feel like part of the ohana. You both looked at each other with so much love in your hearts. Your love inspired everyone. Even the roasters and goats started to sing:-) Definitely an amazing evening. Please call me anytime and let me know when you decide to do a vow renewal. I would love to perform your renewal ceremony as a gift to you both. Take care and have a great 2020!

  • Michaela with Hawaii Beach Weddings made our beach wedding perfect! The ceremony included many Hawaiian touches including the conch shell, Hawaiian chant, Honi, and more. We chose not to write our own vows or ceremony and trusted in Michaela and it was like she wrote the ceremony specifically for us. It was incredibly beautiful and we couldn't have asked for more.

  • From the start Michaela was very easy to communicate with, flexible, and very responsive. She provided us the most intimate and beautiful ceremony imaginable. We truly felt like it was a blessing to have Michaela marry us! She has a very warm heart, great sense of humor, and is a true professional!

  • Michaela is an amazing, warm and charming person and we are so lucky to have been able to work with her and have her officiate our wedding in April 2019. She was incredible right from the first email I sent to see if she was available all the way until after the ceremony. She offered so much helpful advice and tips and was very organized but also really down to earth and chill. At the ceremony, she was a comforting presence for both my husband and I..even though we were meeting for the first time! She made the ceremony so special and personal and everyone was blown away by how touching and sacred all aspects of the ceremony were. Guests are still talking about how special it was and that it was by far the most moving wedding ceremony they have ever witnessed. Thank you, Michaela for being the most wonderful person on such a special day for us.

    Mahalo Caylee for the great review. I really love the photos. The head leis and your bouquet really are beautiful. You look so stunning. I have shared the story of your husbands phone ringing through the speaker. How we thought he might run to answer it. People crack up... They usually say that if he was to answer it you probably would run. I tell people the bride was so cool about it and just smiled. He is a lucky guy... Let me know when you come back to the island. We can have coffee or a beer and catch up.

  • Michaela is such a wonderful women. The very first time we met her, we knew she was a down to earth kind of person. She is such a sweetheart who is also filled with positivity. She made our wedding day so memorable for us. The Hawaiian style tradition wedding is AMAZING! I highly recommend couples to have this kind of wedding AND to have Michaela perform it. She did such an amazing job! Our family loved it and they said it gave them chills because it was so traditional and so powerful. I’ve never been to a Hawaiian wedding ceremony and to have one for our own, I don’t regret it at all! Michaela made this day very special to us and we can’t thank her enough! I loved everything about our wedding and to me, the ceremony was the highlight of it all because it meant so much to us. My husband is Hawaiian and I surprised him with a Hawaiian traditional ceremony. He loved everything about it and it made him so proud! Thank you again Michaela for performing our wedding ceremony!

  • Denny and I were married on January 26, 2019. According to all of our guests, our wedding was absolutely beautiful. They agreed it was also the most memorable of wedding ceremonies they attended. Michaela Larson provided us with a true Hawaiian style wedding, in which she informed our guests and us about the meaning of each part of the ceremony.. We could not have found a more professional and heartwarming officiate to perform our ceremony than Michaela. She will always hold a special place in our hearts! Mahalo nui loa Michaela. With much Aloha, Natalie and Dennis "Denny" Bartlett

    Mahalo Nui Loa Natalie! You have great photos. You and your paniolo look so great together. He said that he felt that he looked like he was in a mariachi band. That was funny. Mahalo for the beautiful review and pictures.... Peace be with you and your ohana.

  • A very beautiful wedding officiant, the blowing of the conch shell was very moving the knowledge of the Hawaiian language translated to English , then the topper was the nose flute that gave everyone goose bumps just outstanding!!
