tantalus drive, oahu wedding- leanne & sasha

Jon dreams of owning a 21 window Volkswagen bus just like this one. Someday Santa is going to surprise him. I have faith in that. This post is for my Mom who requested “eye candy” for Christmas. And for Sal the lucky owner of this 21 window beauty,  who has been dying to see photos of his baby up on Tantalus Drive. And it’s for sweet Leanne & Sasha who are away from their families this Christmas. They are wrapping up their mega honeymoon abroad, apparently it’s totally normal for Australians to take 6 weeks for their honeymoon. I think that makes them the smartest people on the planet. We ended our Christmas Eve with Jon’s family playing their ukuleles and singing completely off key to “Mele Kalikimaka” and “Jingle Bells”. That’s all I needed for Christmas. Well, that and another week on Kauai (I’ve been really good). Peace & Love & Be Merry!

evacuation route, oahu wedding

Chenoa and Valerie’s twinkle light wedding reception was rudely interrupted by a tsunami evacuation horn.

But the horn didn’t win. We packed up their wedding pies and board games and had a tsunami slumber party on Jon’s grandparent’s lanai and the party continued the next day. We love two day weddings anyway. Plus now we finally have a good wedding story to tell the next time someone looks at us with huge eyes and asks “Do you have any wedding horror stories?!?” or “What’s the weirdest thing you have seen at a wedding?!?” You wouldn’t believe how often we get this.


This one had three dresses.
