...special day was filled with love and tenderness, starting with preparation in the hotel room to seeing each other for their "first look" to exchanging their wedding vows and celebrating being husband and wife.
The couple chose beautiful Lanikuhonua (Hawaiian for "Where Heaven Meets the Earth") as their destination wedding venue - an ocean side, open air setting where fish-filled tide pools line the shore, giant palm trees cover the grounds and spectacular sunsets happen everyday. The conch shell blower announces the arrival of the wedding party and the musician plays "I'm Yours" as Alicia walks down the aisle. The bride and groom laugh as they nervously read their vows to each other and place rings on each other's fingers. After the ceremony and a quick group photo, Alicia and Andrew slip away down to the beach for a romantic sunset stroll while a hula dancer and musician entertain the guests. The photo booth provided a lot of laughs but dancing was the order of the day and a perfectly beautiful day it was...
...were married on the beach at Waimanalo on Oahu where, surrounded by family and friends, they exchanged their vows in a short ceremony. After a fun photography session by the crystal clear water, it was on to "The Pink House" on the ocean at Maunalua Bay. Jenni and Kevin surprised their reception guests with a grand entrance by canoe. As the sun set over Diamond Head, the party got started with an open mic session, with the newly joined ohana (family) expressing their love for the beautiful couple. After a Hawaiian style dinner, the dance troupe invited everyone to participate before the highlight of the show, the fire knife dancer. As Jenni and Kevin danced the night away, I thought to myself "What an amazing day...I love my job!".
...celebrated their marriage vows at the Nani Mau Gardens in Hilo on the beautiful island of Hawaii. Nani Mau is translated as “forever beautiful”, a place that’s a treasure filled with many splendored tropical flowers, plants and trees
At the Hilo Hawaiian Hotel, there was much excitement and anticipation in the air as the bride, groom and wedding party got ready before heading to Nani Mau Gardens.
Their wonderful day was filled with many moments of love, tenderness, joy, laughter and celebration as the couple shared their special day with loved ones, friends and family.
