Butterfly Releases in Hawaii

Butterfly releases are perfect for weddings, memorial services, birthdays, or any special occasion that you'd like to create a magical moment. The butterflies can be released individually in a butterfly boxes or in mass quantities from a basket or lantern (see photos below). The process of a Butterfly Release is very simple. A poem, prayer, or well wishes are said and then the butterflies are released as a symbol of the perpetuation of life. 

Individual butterfly releases provide a personal experience. Each person that releases a butterfly can make their own wish before releasing their butterfly.  A mass release give an awe to any occasion as the butterflies flutter away in numbers.

All of the butterflies are hand raised from caterpillars and never caught from the wild. Releasing butterflies at your celebration will support efforts to replenish butterflies in the area that they are released in.

Like a butterfly emerges
and unfolds its graceful wings
A marriage grows and it develops
With the love each partner brings.
Your flight through life together
is what you make it, so reach high
Spread your wings and learn to soar
as if with wings of a butterfly.
Share together life’s great adventure.
Now the two of your are one.
Shower your lover with butterfly kisses.
Your infinite journey has just begun.
— Larry James
As you release this butterfly
in honor of me,
know that I’m with you
and will always be.
Hold and hand, say a prayer,
close your eyes, and see me there.
Although you may feel
a bit torn apart,
please know that I’ll be forever in your heart.
Now fly away butterfly
as high as you can go,
I’m right there with you
more than you know.
— Jill Haley
