To have and to hold

Last June, I received an email from a blog reader asking about things to do on Maui.  She and her fiance were planning on a destination wedding here.  Well, over the course of a few months, this lovely lady (her name is Hana, btw) and I became friends.  And although we didn't meet in person until just last week, I felt like this was a girl I could totally get along and hang out with, if we didn't live so far (she lives in Wyoming).  Hana and her fiance, Nate were super kind and generous to have extended to us an invitation to their wedding.  I was honored. :)  Last night, we got to see the lovely couple get married!!!  It was held at Gannon's in Wailea and the ceremony was beautiful.  It was definitely a great night, and I got to meet a lot of fun people.  I also witnessed Hana's badass dance moves.  That girl definitely knows how to shake her groove thang. :)  Thank you again Hana & Nate for letting us be a part of your special day.  Here's to a fabulous marriage, filled with love, laughs, and joy!  Congrats and best wishes!

Love, S

And who says Asians can't dance? So far, I've yet to see evidence of this statement being true, cause our peeps can SHAKE IT!

You look super darling, S!:) Love how your dress blends beautifully with the backdrop. And your hairrrrr, so pretty with the soft waves. You should do it more often ;)

And I agree with what you said about bloggers turn friends. I can't believe how many friends I've made just through blogging, including YOU! :D

That is so sweet! I live on Oahu and love that I can go to a nearby beach on any given Saturday and see brides getting their pictures taken in their beautiful gowns. I got married in the Ocean Crystal Chapel at the Hilton Hawaiian......it was absolutely wonderful!
