Speaking of beauty......look at what a gorgeous couple Amanda and Brett make!
Amanda and Brett planed a great wedding with tons of stuff to do. Their fun, gorgeous wedding was held at Ke Iki Beach Bongalows on November 1st. The wedding was right on the beach in North Shore.
Wednesday: BBQ at their resort/bungalows that we were staying at and were the wedding was held. (Ryan and I unfortunately had to miss it. No vacation days left)
Thursday: The day Ryan and I arrived, we went on a charted boat around the island. So much fun!!! The weather was kind of crappy, but what a fantastic way to start the trip. Plus we got to see family and meet family for the first time. We also got to meet some of Amanda and Brett's friends and meet Brett's family. His family was very nice and hosted a great event.
Friday: Luncheon rehearsal at Turtle Bay Resort. Very nice!!!! The food was great!
The ceremony was right on the beach at almost sunset. It was just romantic and very, very sweet.
Everyone one in the wedding look very posh and just perfect for the big day!!
The reception was super fun and we all had a BLAST! It was so nice. They had lanterns and outside seating areas. They also had hula dancers, fire dancers and an incredible band. Just a good time with friends, family and lots of bottles of wine!! Ryan's dad, Dave, danced with all the pretty ladies and even got up and sang a song with the band......just a side of him I don't think people have seen in a LOOOONNNGGG time! It was too cute.
Brett's mom made these fantastic parasols and hand painted for gifts. AMAZING! June, painted this great painting of sea turtles for Amanda and she and Brett bottled their favorite wine and used the painting as wine labels. June does a really great job at painting!! Between the two moms....Amanda and Brett are going to have some pretty creative kids!
Congratulations Amanda and Brett!!!
We also visited Dole Pineapple Farm and a small Sea World type of place called Sea Life Park. We got to feed sea lions and see a Whalphin. It is a hybrid of a dolphin and a whale (False Killer Whale). It looked like a dark, large dolphin. It just kept swiming around in his tank, upside down. It is the only one in the world in captivity. She is 22 years old and had one offspring. Really cool! (These photos I found off the internet. We missed the show.)
Ryan couldn't walk because of his back....so I pushed him around in a wheel chair. Good times! Gave me an insight of what it will be when we are 90.
Next time....I really want to go snorkeling. I liked being in the ocean. Plus the water was such a great temperature. I want to see all the fisheys!!!
