Edwardson and Judith's Wedding

Congratulations, Edwardson and Judith! Edwardson is a very good friend of mine whom I have known for a long, long time! He and Judith have been through thick and thin and I am so excited that they finally tied the knot on Saturday, July 8, 2006 at the Eagle Ridge Golf Club in Lakewood, New Jersey. I had been waiting for that day to come for a long while.

In fact, they got engaged on May 28, 2005 during our wedding week in Honolulu! So we were able to celebrate their engagement as well. All of our closest friends were at their wedding and I think my hubby and I were the only ones who traveled the furthest for this joyous occasion - over 5,000 miles!

Kathy and Jonathan's Wedding

Congratulations Jonathan and Kathy! Jonathan is my hubby's cousin, and he got married just a month after we did on Sunday, July 24, 2005. Both their ceremony and reception were in Santa Clara, but we were only able to attend the ceremony because we just moved to Mau`i a month before that and my hubby just started his new job and didn't have any vacation time accrued yet.

So we took a red-eye flight on Saturday evening, arrived in the San Francisco bay area early Sunday morning, went to the ceremony at 2:00 pm and had to head back to the airport to fly back to Mau`i right afterwards. It was the shortest transpacific trip we had ever taken, but we were able to see the family for a few hours and it was a beautiful ceremony. Wish we could have stayed for dinner though!

MY Wedding!

After planning and attending so many beautiful weddings, it was finally my turn to have my own destination wedding on Thursday, June 2, 2005 at the Moana Surfrider on O`ahu!

We had such an awesome day but being the planner that I am, it was really hard for me to let go of all the details on the day of. I was setting up the wedding favors while my maid of honor was getting her hair and makeup done in our bridal suite! All of our family who was helping out literally had to kick me out of the ballroom because they just wanted me to enjoy the day.

A hundred of our closest family and friends were with us to share this very special day. They were from all over the world - Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, Canada, U.S. (New York, Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles)... We were so blessed to be surrounded by loved ones and it truly was an amazing wedding week. A huge mahalo to everyone who helped make this day possible. We love you all!
