a happily ever after for my homegirl
it's just the best thing ever when one of your friends from high school snags a great guy and makes a gorgeous bride. robin, myself and shannon were lucky enough to watch our little perfect Kehaulani do this. the Loo family has meant a lot to many people in salinas. some of us were able to travel up to oregon to be there with them for kehau's wedding. this branden guy knows he scored big time. he seems wonderful and the californians can tell they will be an extremely happy couple. after settling in the hotel, we went thru a session, grabbed dinner, hot tubbed and got ready for her big day. of course the sealing of their marriage was more than wonderful. i just remember the happy couple smiling thru the whole thing. they made their grand entrance and i was so proud of her awesome shoes. it was definelty a beautiful, fantastic occasion. the reception was at a country club, crazy golfers were playing away even with the downpour. everything looked amazing and was completley organized and well carried out in true kehau fashion. it was definetly a partaaay for us. we were greeted with candy leis and we were able to tear up the dance floor. we reverted to our youth days with our favorite young womens leader, sister loo, and we did our traditional "jump" by KrisKros routine. it was awesome, to say the least. her big brother did a geat job hosting the events and making the formalities of a wedding reception super fun and enjoyable. but the highlight had to be the surprise kehaulani planned for her mom. she wanted to perform a traditional hawaiian hula in honor of her father (papa/bishop loo) who passed away about 3 years ago. it was touching, graceful, flawless, and the most honorable act i've ever seen a daughter do for her father. we all felt overwhelmingly privelaged to witness such a moment and so blessed to know this favorite family of ours. this was for sure a fairy tale wedding, this polnesian princess deserves her happily ever after. aloha!
