Anthony and Kara's Wedding

After falling in love many years ago at nearby Hawaii Preparatory Academy in Kamuela, Anthony and Kara sealed their relationship with vows to each other on September 1, 2012 at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel. 

So much thought went into preparing such a loving celebration.  Among many other things, Kara, of Japanese descent, made 1000 gold origami cranes for the traditional family crest that was displayed at the reception.  And finding their parents' wedding photos, the florist recreated their mothers' wedding bouquets, which were presented to them at the reception.

Their gentleness and obvious love and passion for each other was soul-filling.  Such an honor to be part of the day that launches a new history-in-the-making.  Richest of Blessings and Aloha to you both!
