Jen and Frank are stylish stylish. I heard that they always knew they wanted to get married here at the Crystal Chapel in Waikiki. Jen’s matron of honor wore a long silver gown and carried a black feather posy. The reception hall was black and white and silver with long tapered candles as the centerpieces with masquerade masks lying on the table. And then they threw in their quirky fun by handing out glow stick necklaces once the dancing started.

Pastor Tom, the high school pastor, was the officiant. He just had his own wedding back in June of this year and Jen was a bridesmaid. Tom and his wife, Grace, did the decorations in the reception hall. No pictures there…I was too busy eating and trying to get Scott to dance.
(during their personal vows)
Most couples decline when asked if they want to do their own vows. Frank looked like he was fighting back tears during his vow. I didn’t even hear Jen’s. She leaned into him, looked him in the eye, and whispered her vows to him. It was obvious that they were sharing that moment and reveling in the commitment they were making, it was so endearing.

It was great to get out the camera and practice my skills again. Things are just starting to feel normal again following the Christmas craziness. I have a session for Haley’s Christmas photos tomorrow morning. I’m trying to plan out when I’ll have a lull in sessions so I can send my camera in for cleaning and upkeep.
