Jason and Bianca tied the knot on the east coast of the beautiful island of Oahu at Waimanalo Bay Beach Park this past Friday! It was a gorgeous day with light winds and just the right amount of sun. Turquoise waters surrounded the us and sunshine peaked through at the most perfect moments. Although it was our first time meeting Bianca and Jason in person, with all the planning and talk of their wedding going on for the past few months, we felt as though we had known them forever.
We arrived on site about 2hrs early to pick up all the flowers and set the ceremony up. We made sure to put signage up and balloons so that guests would know where to go. We had to clear a few people out of the way, to make some space for the ceremony, but nobody minded, everybody knows how important a wedding day is! Soon Kahu Bruce, the officiant arrived and our ukulele player Mike Izon. The four of us (Kahu, Mike, Erika & I) waited patiently for the rest of the party and bride and groom to arrive. All the planning and preparation was coming together ~ how very exciting!!
When the wedding bus finally arrived we had Kahu go over the ceremony with the guests and soon the most beautiful bride I have ever seen made her way down the isle. Bianca and Jason had a very traditional Hawaiian ceremony that was also very personalized and heartfelt. We felt honored to be a part of it & I will admit to tearing up a little bit when I saw Bianca tearing up.. It is obvious how much you two love each other and we do hope your beach wedding was everything you had imagined and more:) We wish you both an amazing rest of your Hawaiian vacation and do hope you and your family enjoyed the ceremony festivities as much as we did. Cheers to your Best Day Ever!
Thank YOU >> A special thanks to Kahu Bruce. The ceremony was perfect! Thank you for helping us make Bianca and Jason’s day so special!
