Molii Gardens Wedding: Jordan and Jessica

Oahu Wedding Photo clients Jordan and Jessica tied the knot at Molii Gardens, Kualoa Ranch a couple weeks ago. The overcast skies did not dampen the spirits of this young couple and their friends and family. They exchanged vows by the water in a ceremony officiated by two of their friends. One of my favorite images of this wedding is when it started to sprinkle and Jordan looked up at the sky and said "Why does it have to rain on my wedding day?" We reminded him that rain and rainbows are considered a blessing in Hawaii. Both Jordan and Jessica of course knew this because they had both grown up in Hawaii. The rain stopped after just a few minutes. Congratulations to Jordan and Jessica! Enjoy the slideshow. We will post reception pictures later.

Koolau Golf Club Wedding: Lawrence and Naomi

Naomi and Lawrence tied the knot at Ko'olau Ballrooms in Kaneohe. They had a lot of children at their wedding, so Naomi's talented sister had a kid's favor buffet set up to keep the little ones entertained during the reception. What a good idea! It was a wonderful celebration with a Lion Dance and Taiko Drummers. Best wishes to Naomi and Lawrence.

Kailua Sunset Wedding: Steven and Kori

Kori and Steve, a fun-loving couple from Alaska, enjoyed a destination wedding on Kailua Beach last month. Kori's relatives on Oahu and Kauai helped plan a beautiful Hawaiian wedding ceremony that included ukulele music and a hula dance. Guests were given Japanese umbrellas and lauhala fans to keep them cool during the ceremony. The lively reception was held at Pah Ke's Restaurant in Kaneohe. Pah Ke's is a local favorite for Chinese food and mouth-watering desserts and cakes (the owner, Raymond Siu, used to be the pastry chef for the Halekulani Hotel). Congratulations and best wishes to Kori and Steve! Steve will never forget their anniversary: 9-9-09!

Flowers by Carole
Officiant: Rev. David Leonard Vega
