Inspired wedding ceremonies with Aloha! ❤️🌴🌺
Do you need a beautiful, heartfelt ceremony for your wedding? From big formal events to a beautiful beach with just the two of you, I will provide just the right ceremony with aloha, sincerity and heart.
All faiths, beliefs and couples welcome. Love is love.
We can customize one of my many ceremonies or I can create one especially for you. You can find an example of one of my modern ceremonies here. More information on what my services include and fee schedule is here.
Every relationship is unique so your wedding ceremony should be too!
There are many beautiful traditions of Hawaii and I can help guide you to some that we can respectfully integrate into your wedding.
Want to do something creative or daring for your special day? I’ve presided over many kinds of weddings and I’m open to ideas that will make your ceremony uniquely yours. (Planning a pirate wedding?)

Aloha! I’ve been celebrating weddings and conveying blessings for over 20 years. I started young and even while I’ve had successful careers in the arts, technology and counseling over the years, presiding over sacred ceremony has held fast as a true calling. Creating and performing wedding ceremonies is an honor and a joy for me.
A wedding can be a dignified affair but it’s also a joyous occasion. I’ve been told that I bring a lighthearted but also a grounded energy, calming a nervous couple while also encouraging them to be present and feel all the joy and beautiful truth of the moment.
It’s a great joy to work with couples on crafting just the right ceremony that reflects their values, personality and particular brand of joie de vivre!
I hold an ordination from The Church of Spiritual Humanism and some tongue-in-cheek ones like The Church of the Latter-Day Dude and The Church of the Subgenius. I am a licensed marriage & civil union performer for the State of Hawaii (lic 201611641). I’m also an avid paddler of Hawaiian outrigger canoes, a student of hula and Hawaiian culture, a volunteer for charities and a DJ for a local radio station.
It will be my pleasure to provide just the right ceremony for the two of you with aloha, sincerity and heart.
I’m happy to recommend wedding planners, flowers, photographers, hula performers, caterers, venues, musicians and more. I write about some of them on my blog but you can also drop me a line and I’ll send you my preferred vendors list.

SHE WAS AMAZING! She was fun, professional and very accommodating. She took the time to get to know us… We really felt that she cared about making our day special. She was so sweet and upon meeting her for the first time, felt like family. I’m looking forward to keeping in touch with her and renewing our vows in years to come! Thank you, Rev Julienne, for making our day so incredibly special!!

We had the pleasure of having Rev. Julienne officiate our wedding in Hana on Sept. 5th 2018. She was most gracious in accommodating my wife and I on short notice and even traveling to a remote location to perform our ceremony. We couldn’t have been happier with her services. Thanks Julienne, you truly made our experience special.

We were married in Maui and found Julienne online. We could not have been happier with her!! She is so sweet and genuine, and she helped our ceremony go smoothly. She calmed any nerves we had and brought a great feeling to the ceremony. We loved her and would absolutely recommend her to anyone and everyone!

Rev. Julienne was exactly the officiant my wife and I were looking for. She is sweet and spirited, grounded and uplifted. She made us feel so comfortable and talked with us about what we wanted on the day and shared all the details of the service along the way. The ceremony itself was fantastic. Rev. Julienne performed ancient Hawaiian chants and prayers and held the space beautifully while we recited our vows. Rev. Julienne is a beautiful person. We were so happy to have her officiating for our special day.

We are very happy to have chosen Julienne to perform our wedding ceremony. We wanted a simple but meaningful ceremony and she tailored it to us. She is very easy to work with and has a great vibe. Also advised us on good places for leis and flowers. She definitely helped and made the process very easy. Everyone has given us compliments on our beautiful ceremony. We are very happy to have had her on our special day.

Julienne surpassed our expectations! She was super easy to communicate with, was genuinely happy to be a part of our day, and was full of positive energy and good vibes. We truly appreciated her willingness to work with us rather quickly and even helped explain the somewhat complicated process of getting married in Hawaii. I highly recommend Julienne for many reasons and know you will love having her officiate your special day too!

Rev Julienne made everything PERFECT for our wedding day! We kind of planned everything last minute, and she was still able to make our wedding day everything that we could have hoped for. She was so easy to work with. She listened to what we wanted and pulled everything off without a hitch. She’s amazing.
