Hammocking at Brenneke’s. We saw multiple whales breaching that day! Amazing!

My husband and I are just back from Kaua’i and our daughter Danielle’s wedding, and I thought I’d share some of the photos. My daughter and her new husband live on island, so for them this is home. For their family and friends from the mainland (to put things in perspective, the bride has five siblings), it’s called “a destination wedding.” As you can see from the photos, we made the most of it!

Ziplining with Outfitters Kaua’i (the bride’s employer).

Whale-watching with Blue Dolphin. We saw lots of tail.
The top of Waimea Canyon.
and the view of the Napali Coast
Hammocking at Waimea Plantations (best “hotel” ever).

Snorkling at Poipu Beach
Turtle heading for the snorklers. Some were lucky enough to swim with them.

Chickens on the beach–only in Kaua’i

Hiking the Kalalau Trail to the Napali Coast.

The bride and groom in their natural habitat–Salt Pond Beach.

The favorite brother (the only son) on Polihale Beach–the farthest south you can go.

The bridesmaids(a sister-in-law and four sisters) dancing barefoot to the wedding.

The sunset reception, followed by dinner under the tent.

Mr. and Mrs. Davis
Now, with the trip behind us it’s time to get back to work.
Please check back on Sunday for my regular post.

Mahalo and Aloha!

Don’t Miss a Thing!

    What a delightful event (and what great memories you all have created). Thanks for sharing those lovely photos, Chris, (especially the waterfall!)….it makes me want to visit Hawaii again. Gorgeous!

    I loved this, Chris. Such a beautiful setting, such beautiful people, such a beautiful feeling to it all. What a wonderful way for them to start their new life. And yes, loved the chickens on the beach! Aloha!

    Chris, these are beautiful! Is your daughter's employer in need of a writer, by any chance? 😉
