Ten years ago, Ira Ono purchased a neglected historic estate nestled in the intimate rainforest setting of Volcano Village, a stone's throw from Hawai'i Volcanoes Nati​onal Park. With his passion for gardening, Ira brought the grounds and original structures back to life in a dedicated labor of love. An original 1908 farmhouse is now home to a contemporary art gallery and a natural foods restaurant, Café Ono. There is also a guest cottage, restored from the original grounds-keeper’s house.

The meticulously sculpted garden offers several elegant and enchanting choices of settings for a truly unique and memorable ceremony.
