Congrats to you both and the shawl is just right there so graceful and elegant. Although you may have seen the sign on the beach for where the sand is from right over my back yard at Port Kembla Beach.

It is so lovely that you are both happy and I am sure Em loved the fact she was part of it.

Hey nice shawl. Where did you buy it (ducking for cover)?

Posted by: Cece at January 17, 2008 03:26 AM

Congratulations! How romantic and beautiful to be married in Hawaii. You both look gorgeous and so happy! A beach wedding in Hawaii was what I wanted for my wedding too but too much family pressure to have a big wedding. Not getting married at a church was already a huge deal for my mom. So are you off to a honeymoon? Or is it all combined since you're in paradise already?

Posted by: Evelyn at January 17, 2008 04:01 AM

YAY!!!!!! I've been sitting on this news for a week waiting for you to do it, and then post about it. You look lovely! And Dave? Rowr!

Congrats to the both of you.

Posted by: jacqueline at January 22, 2008 09:23 PM

Ok today is my first day back on the computer for a month nearly because of moving house. I have very obviously missed reading something very important on your blog along the way. Because I didn't realise that you were going to Hawaii to get married. I feel really dumb right now!!! Congratulations to you all! Kim and I went to Hawaii for our honeymoon 13years ago for 4 weeks when we got married and as a surprise for me he arranged for my daughter to join us for 7 days and we all loved it and one day hope to go back there.

Congrats once again and I wish you all a wonderful and a very happy life together!

Posted by: Helen at January 24, 2008 05:38 PM

wow! did I miss that or was it something you didn't mention on your blog? Congratulations, you look really happy.
