Our Wedding Picture

On December 12th of 2012, Bruce and Su were married on the Big Island surrounded by their children and grandchildren.

We chose a beautiful location overlooking the ocean in a very informal setting. In fact, the groom wore shorts and sandals! No tuxes needed! Everyone wore Tommy Bahama resort wear.

We chose a local artist, Calley O’Neill, to officiate our service. Calley is well known on the island and is currently an artist in residence at the Four Seasons Resort- Hualalai. Actually, one of Calley’s paintings, “The Three Graces” hangs in the master bedroom of our condo. Please check out Calley’s website www.calleyoneill.com  and her new project:  www.theramaexhibition.org

Music for our ceremony was provided by Widdy Loo, a native of the Big Island.  Widdy is a great guitarist and vocalist, singing a mix of Hawaiian, pop, and folk music.  Widdy often plays at the terrace bar at the Fairmont Orchid Hotel.  If you have the opportunity to hear him perform, don’t miss it!

Our ceremony was a mixture of traditional Christian, and native Hawaiian.  We had the traditional exchange of rings (brought to us by our grandson in a hollowed out coconut) and an exchange of leis with all of our family and friends in attendance. The leis were made for us by Grace Flowers in Kamuela. What a beautiful job she did!  They were the most fragrant and beautiful leis of pikake blossoms. WOW!  Alison Grace Higgins recently opened her shop in Kamuela and does local flowers for any occasion. (808-443-3999)

Our reception and dinner were catered in a beautiful outside setting by Kohala Coast Catering.  Cary Peterson and his crew did a superb job. Their menu features creative recipes prepared with Hawaiian grass fed beef, fresh line-caught fish and farm to table produce.  Check out their website at www.kohalacoastcatering.com .  Cary also owns Kohala Burger and Taco in Kawaihae. Check it out!

It was a beautiful evening provided by some very talented and creative people.  While visiting the Island, please help support these and other independent, locally owned businesses and services.
