It rained, it poured, and despite it all Kathryne and Nick got married. And it was a beautiful thing.
I don’t think I have ever seen it rain that hard. Albeit I am a good ol’ Cali boy, but I have traveled around a bit and seen my share of weather and this was almost comedic. On my first night there I remember walking from my rental car to my hotel room (20 feet) in the rain thinking I must have fallen in a pool! I know the weather was not what Kathryne and Nick must have had in mind when they were planning their tropical wedding, but I have to admit I think it may have turned out better than anyone could have imagined. They had a quaint ceremony underneath the cover a wood hut in the middle of the lush Smith Family Garden Luau. There was something about being there all together, finding shelter from the rain, huddled closely listening to Kathryne and Nick exchange their vows to the backdrop of the rainwater cascading down around us. It was really quite magical. I must say the love and excitement for Kathryne and Nick underneath that hut was enough to make any day the best day one could ask for. It was a gorgeous day and Kathryne looked absolutely stunning in her beautiful Maggie Sottero gown. Luckily I had arranged to stay for a few days after the wedding so once the weather cleared we were able to revisit the gardens and get some romantic photos in the tropical sun that Hawaii is known for. I truly loved being a part of this day and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to really know Kathryne and Nick and their amazing families. I can’t wait until our paths cross again. Congratulations to Kathryne and Nick!
