Haiku Mill, the premiere off beach venue on Maui, sponsored a special Easter Dinner at their elegant property in Haiku.
Dellables was requested to present something creative and non-contrived, something elegant and unique. Della, of course, when given those options, excels!
The guests were definitely feeling the magic as it all came together beautifully.
