The monarchs are hatched
and raised in a "butterfly garden collective" on the windward
side of Oahu at Island Rhythms' butterfly farm. Through
their business venture, Island Rhythms has been successful
at helping to replenishing the once nearly extinct monarch
butterfly on the island of Oahu. By ordering the butterfly
release for your ceremony, you are actually helping to ensure
the efforts of increasing the population of these beautiful
Island Rhythms' butterflies are much more tame than wild
butterflies as they are raised in captivity instead of
in the wild, it is common that they will land on the bouquet
for a moment enhancing the photography and delighting
the guests at your ceremony.
"Butterflies are a joyous symbol of life, transformation,
and the essence of freedom. In many cultures, it is believed
that butterflies serve as messengers of the soul. Since
they make no sound, a whispered wish to a butterfly means
that it will be carried to the heavens and instantly granted."
-- Island Rhythms
