The bride got her wish to marry as close to the ocean as possible and the waves crashing was the soundtrack for the wedding. All the wedding party was barefoot but still dressed up in the colors of purple and green (hence my scarf choice). Their guests formed the "aisle" by lining up in two halves and carrying purple bows to indicate where we walked to the "altar" ( a large rock set in the sand). The bride was escorted down the sand dune by her father. The couple's little daughter was a little cutie in her lavender dress.
I used a portable mini-P.A. to slightly amplify my words so that the guests would be able to hear the ceremony over the waves, as I officiated with the ceremony choices the couple selected. As always, I spoke about the couple's history in the address to add in a personal touch - no two weddings are alike. The guy who introduced them eight years ago was a member of the groomsmen so I gave him a "shout out."
The guests and couple looked very happy on this special occasion and I wish H. & T. all my Aloha.
