Deanna

Licensed Minister

Owner of Kona Wedding Officiant

Meet Deanna

Kona Wedding Officiant’s licensed minister, Deanna, believes that Aloha is the most important element of a wedding in Hawaii.  Aloha has many meanings, but most of all, it means love.  Deanna specializes in Hawaiian traditions and enjoys creating intimate, romantic ceremonies for couples.  All couples and denominations are welcome in marriage and vow renewal at Kona Wedding Officiant. 

Deanna believes that every wedding is a gift.  She is passionate about bringing couples together in the sacred bond of marriage.  Ceremonies are personalized to couples and additional elements such as Blowing Of The Pu are welcomed without additional fees. To create an ideal experience, all weddings are performed on secluded beaches whenever possible.

Deanna has a degree in Philosophy and Religion.  She has a strong background in Hawaiian cultures and traditions through her past work as a teacher in the state of Hawaii.  Deanna had the privilege to teach Hawaiian studies and Hawaiian history.  There she was given the gift of working with Hawaiian Kumus where she learned protocols and traditions such as lei making, chants, and songs.  Deanna continues to learn new Hawaiian Oli, Mele, and Pule to bring to her ceremonies. Before moving to Hawaii, back in New Jersey, Deanna worked with hundreds of brides and grooms in a different way, as a professional wedding photographer.
