Last year I photographed the wedding of former Miss Hawaii Aureana to the love of her life Gary. Being from Hawaii but now living in Japan, Aureana and Gary chose Ireland as a middle ground to bring all the people they love together from all over the globe. They mixed Irish and Hawaiian tradition with all the flair of a good ole Irish wedding party and the meaningful celebrations of Hawaii through song and dance. Opting for a Romeo and Juliette-esque style wedding it was set in a beautiful Irish manor with the ceremony on the balcony in the garden. After a quick wardrobe change, Hawaiian dancer Aureana performed a piece that she choreographed just for her new husband. It was a day of heartfelt celebration.
