What: Wedding of Tiffany and Bill
Where: North shore of Oahu’s coast
When: March 20th, 2009, 4:00 pm
Scott and I recently had another wedding through one of the island’s best wedding planners, Moana Bjur. She met us on the north shore of Oahu on the sandy shores of Kawela Bay. It was the first time that either of us had been there before and we even missed the access path driving by the first. Kawela Bay is a white sandy beach hidden away near blue waters without another soul in sight. The afternoon was quite warm with the sun beating down on the water’s edge, but I really fell in love with a banyan grove that you walk through to get to the beach. I’d love to go there more often, if only it wasn’t an hour from my house (we island people aren’t used to things being farther than 10 minutes away).
Tiffany and Bill chose our Hawaiian paradise to wed after three years of dating. They brought close family members with them in a romantic destination wedding. Tiffany walked down the aisle to soft strains of a Brother Iz remake of the classic “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” being played on the ukulele. I couldn’t help but sing along softly under my breath. I would have sung louder but I doubt everyone else would have enjoyed it as much as I do. The only uninvited guests were some horses and their riders riding far in the distance on the sand.
What a small world. I found that the ukulele player was actually my high school classmate, Kanekoa. No wonder I was having a Song Contest flashback when I was singing to myself during his song list. Our high school was heavy on it’s musical influence.
