Day 4: Hiking to the top of Diamondhead crater, and Josh & Sarah’s wedding!!!!
It’s been staring me in the face for three days now! The morning of the wedding, we got up at 6 AM to hike Diamondhead.
It wasn’t a particularly challenging walk, but we were still grateful that Betsy and my parents watched the twins back at the house.
I’m happy we discovered that our phones could do panoramic pictures. This is a view of the crater from the top.
We were home by 9 AM and then Betsy and I went into town to get our hair done and pick up poke for lunch. I put a plumeria blossom from the tree at our house in my hairdo.
We arrived at the wedding site 2 hours early for pre-wedding pictures. Timmy did not want to wear his ring bearer clothes and insisted on keeping his former shirt around his neck. They both melted down and only Curious George could calm them down, so instead of participating in pictures with the groomsmen and bridal party, they were either screaming or watching George. It’s really sad for me, but I guess they are only two years old.
We were able to take these few family photos without George also being in the picture! Guests started to show up, and the twins decided to literally turn on the charm. I didn’t have my camera in my hand, but luckily, Eunice did and she turned it on my boys just in time!
20 minutes before the ceremony, the twins held hands and walked the pillows down the aisle like they were supposed to (and the photographer got pictures of it!) But then guests filled the seats and they got nervous, so we had to walk them down the aisle in the end!
Fan side of the family. My cousin was active enough to shadow the photographer and get many of the same shots, so I feel like I have a great preview of the photos to come!
I don’t know when this picture was taken! I don’t even know who is throwing my other baby (Gabriel, is that you?)!!!
It’s true… when you have kids, you forget to be in pictures yourself. Or you don’t get enough sleep and sub-consciously feel self conscious at your busted, swollen left eyelid (yup, when I say you, I mean me, womp womp) But the bride and bridegroom look youthful and radiant!! I can’t choose between the three of these pictures.
On this day, I had decided to be one of those “live in the moment” non-camera people, but that’s totally not me! I am a “live in the moment and remember it always by scrapbooking/blogging the pictures I took” person! I’ve managed to get enough pictures from other people to be satisfied, but I don’t think I’ll make the mistake of not using my camera again. And I’m relieved to remember that I asked a family friend to take a family picture for us at sunset with his huge camera, so I hope to see those shots soon!
I’ll continue to beg for pictures from other people and if I get enough good ones, I’ll do another post with wedding pictures in a month or so 😉
