Earlier this month at the Wailea Beach Resort, we took photos for the annual Merrie Monarch benefit event for Hālau Kekuaokalā’au’ala’iliahi. The event featured Kainani Kahaunaele, Manuheali’i & other special guests. The event also included a pop-up shop, silent & live auction, and marketplace shopping.
This Fashion Love Affair featured the beautiful clothing designer, Manuheali’i.
Via Hālau Kekuaokalā’au’ala’iliahi Facebook page: “Hālau Kekuaokalā`au`ala`iliahi presents various events through out the year featuring hula and Hawaii’s top entertainers. Hālau events benefit the haumana (students) in raising funds to travel and participate in various hula competitions, including the Hula O Na Keiki, the Queen Lili`uokalani Keiki Hula Competition, and the Merrie Monarch Festival.”
It was an honor to capture these photos for these wonderful kumus and their amazing ohana and hula community.
