Janey and Tri’s beautiful Hawaiian wedding took place at the incredible Outrigger Reef on the Beach resort in Waikiki, Honolulu on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. It was the perfect location for the touching wedding ceremony officiated by Dr. Stan Ponz. The spirit and feeling of the ceremony were truly wonderful and very much Hawaiian. Many traditional Hawaiian sayings and words were discussed to give a sense of how the Hawaiian culture interprets ‘ohana (which means family). The couple’s family and friends enjoyed the ceremony on the outdoor terrace overlooking palm trees and the gorgeous Pacific Ocean across Waikiki’s legendary beach. The bride wore a beautiful dress and carried a bouquet of local tropical Hawaiian flowers. The groom wore a suit and a wedding lei made of Ti leaves, which ancient Hawaiians believed held healing powers and is often given for good luck. For wedding photos after the ceremony, we strolled along Waikiki Beach and into Fort Derussy Beach Park.
The wedding reception was a wonderful celebration of Janey and Tri’s marriage, with a tasty grand Hawaiian meal, and a handmade wedding cake made by Janey & Tri themselves which they baked the night before the wedding! This cake, featured a pineapple layer and a decadently tasty chocolate Nutella layer. The wedding favors were also handmade by Tri and Janey, which were individually handcrafted soaps for each guest. This made such a fabulous and personal gift for all of the friends and family.
We want to thank Tri and Janey for having us capture their incredible wedding, it was so beautiful and we wish them all the very best for their future. I hope we can share more of their gourmet food creations again sometime! Thanks again, JP and Erica
