BLYTHE AND MICHAEL WEDDING

September, 2009 in Honolulu

"Example: Our wedding was great! We got married at the Hale Koa Hotel. Having half our wedding party come from San Francisco (friends) and the other half was local (family) created such a fun mix. Most of our guest stayed at the Hilton Hawaiian, which made Everyones lives a lot easier. When you are organizing big groups its better to have them all in the same place. We also turned our wedding into a week long adventure. We got people to rent cars and had over 50 people on the north shore. We also threw a bbq the day after at the Hale Koa (about $500 with food and drinks) Everyone was on the same page and talked aobut the wedding from the night before."
