"Weddings 'R Us" Hawaii (Big Island) Local Custom Tip by yooperprof

Hawaii (Big Island) Local Customs: 42 reviews and 44 photos

  I do, I do
by yooperprof

As "the destination weddings" have become increasingly popular, the Big Island of Hawaii is turning into "wedding central". That's what brought me here: my Chicago friends Jane and Gerard decided to celebrate their nuptials here. They were married at the Fairmont Orchid Resort, and had one of those "beach at sunset" weddings. With the glorious Pacific sun as a backdrop, and the palm trees of the resort in the foreground, they had the kind of oceanic splendour that you'll never find in an ordinary Illinois wedding. Here they are with other members of the wedding party at the rehearsal the day before.

(That's the bride, Jane, in the orange sarong; Gerard, a real fashionista, has the green and white long-sleeved shirt.)
