The wedding day at magic island started with Michael & his Dad arriving early, to set up chairs for the comfort of their 20 plus relatives and friends. What a guy! As the guys waited at the wedding site, everyone started to arrive by cabs, and here comes Natalie, beautiful in white, along with the couple’s extremely cute little daughter, playing shy. White floral lei’s were presented to the parents. Natalie carried a beautiful bouquet made with lilies, and lots of branches with sprays of white/purplish dandrob/orchids. The wedding began with professional (Baron Bento) singer/ukulele player with the wedding intro, Natalie walking up with her Dad to the smiling handsome Michael. Their own special vows to each other was very touching. The Rev. Michael Nelson did a very nice personalized wedding ceremony incorporating the blessing, ring exchange and the lei exchange. Nat and Michael’s daughter wore the rings around her neck (like a lei) representing the ring bearer. She is adorable! Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Michael ChmiLar!
