Our Clients Say
"Maurisa was an essential contributor to the success and experience of our wedding! Trying to coordinate our destination wedding on our own (initially) was extremely difficult and stressful. Things changed immediately when Maurisa came on board to support us. She was able to overcome any and all challenges that arose throughout the process, and expertly put all the pieces together. Her help was definitely worth every penny, and she brought additional value that we weren’t expecting. We highly recommend Sweet Like Honey, and can honestly say there wasn’t a single negative aspect to our interactions or the whole process overall. Thank you very much!"

spirit of kokua
Kokua is an important concept on the islands. Kokua is the word used to describe the spirit of kindness, accompanied by a desire to help one another, without expecting anything in return. SLH Weddings & Events is committed to supporting local non-profits and projects that support and protect vulnerable people and animals on the major and outer islands of Hawaii.
As visitors on the sacred islands of Hawaii, it is important for us to act with the spirit of kokua. When you choose to partner with SLH Weddings & Events, you are supporting our commitment to He Makana Aloha Music Program, Hospice of Kona, and the Hawaii Island Humane Society. As we continue to grow + partner with couples, we hope to continue to expand our giving efforts. Please read a brief blurb about each of these non-profits below + consider a donation of your own.
He Makana Aloha Music Program
He Makana Aloha (A Gift of Love) Music Program's goal is to provide instruments and music education through workshops, community concerts, and music camps at no cost to children and families. Their targeted areas are South Kona, Moloka'i, Hana, and Lana'i. The program is run entirely by volunteers and depends on community sponsorships and donations.
SLH Weddings & Events is excited to share our commitment in sponsoring a student each summer to attend the program.
hospice of kona
Hospice of Kona’s family-centered approach to end-of-life care provides warmth, compassion and that needed personal touch. Based in Kailua Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii (also known as “The Healing Island”), Hospice of Kona focuses on the whole person, and believes life should be celebrated with the highest quality of compassionate care.
SLH Weddings & Events is excited to share YOURS and our commitment to Hospice of Kona. At the conclusion of every event, our staff collects the remaining florals + donates them to Hospice of Kona to brighten a patient's day.
hawaii island humane society
Hawaii Island Humane Society is a non-profit animal welfare organization that offers lifesaving programs and community outreach services. The mission of Hawaii Island Humane Society is to prevent cruelty to animals, eliminate pet overpopulation, and enhance the bond between humans and animals.
SLH Weddings & Events is excited to share our commitment to feed a shelter animal each month.
