Since almost everyone's wedding day is a day of dreams come true, Damaris mentioned she wanted to get married on the beach in her bikini. That was ok with me, so we made a plan and asked our Hawaiian friends to meet us at Kaloko fishponds at 11am on Thursday February 27th, 1997. The fishponds are part of an ancient Hawaiian fishing village that is now a state or federal park on the island of Hawaii near the town of Kailua Kona.
Would you know it, of all the 40+ days we spent on the Big Island of Hawaii the winter of 1997, the only time it rained during the day was the morning we were to get married. So, we came up with plan B. I had seen this lovely petite church years before and remember comment to my self that if I ever did, this would be the place to do it......
Before long that morning, I had called all my frineds and told them of the new plans, I had been off to St. Pet's main church in Kailua Kona to make a donation in order that we use St. Peters Church in Kahaluu, than back to pick up my bride to be and the both of us off to WalMart for a large pario (giant Polynesian scarf) so Damaris could where her bikini under her red pario in the church. All this between 9 and 11 am.
Any way St. Peters church is a lovely 33 seat church less than 1o feet away from the warm blue Pacific ocean. I am happy it rained that morning, St. Pet's was a lovely place to start our married life.
After the wedding and the normal foto session, Damaris wanted her bikini
at the beach wedding fotos, so here are two of them. I told you there was
a good reason, good enough for us.
Yup, Can You Believe It?
