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?)
Kind words from some of my couples:

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.

We had Julienne conduct our ceremony in Maui and we could not have been happier! I had a ton of things going on with a new move/job but wanted an intimate vow exchange at our favorite place in the whole world, before our larger traditional Hindu wedding. Julienne made things super simple and easy in just a single phone call. She understood what I wanted (elements of Hawaiian culture with elements of Indian culture) and helped brainstorm some ideas which she shared with me. I made my edits and she delivered with perfection. I highly recommend her for your special day because she has a warm personality, calm demeanor and is very efficient at understanding what you could want and executing on it.

Magnificent and sacred! Rev. Julienne is truly a Maui Jewel. We chose her because she is genuine. Her ceremonies are personal and full of love. We are so glad we chose jewels for our wedding. Other than my husband she was the best part.

We had the pleasure of having Jules officiate our 20-year vow renewal in Maui. She is truly a beautiful soul going out of her way to make sure our special day was exactly what we wanted. She went out of her way to get to know our story and continually went the extra mile to make things easier for me since I was planning from afar. Her spirituality and kindness will forever leave a lasting impression on us. Thank you for the perfect day!

Reverend Julienne was absolutely incredible. My husband and I flew into Maui from Tennessee. I had been communicating with Julienne via email for some time, trying to plan out our elopement. Julienne made the process so very simple, she helped me to understand how the ceremony would play out and put me at ease with it all! She was so professional as well as KIND! My husband and her really hit it off while waiting on me before our ceremony started. My husband has talked so much about how great and sweet she was! I like to think we chose the best officiant on the island, perhaps the entire state of Hawaii! I recommend her to anyone looking to get married on the gorgeous island.
We love Reverend Julienne!❤️

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.

Working with Rev. Julienne was fantastic! From her cheerful personality to her helpfulness with our questions she was a joy to have as our officiant. Rev. Julienne took into account our specific wishes for the ceremony and helped us craft wedding vows that were perfect for us. If you are thinking about getting married in Hawaii you have to consider Rev. Julienne!

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!

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.
