Kelly Clark Leonard of Event of the Season was their planner, and she made sure everything was perfect - and it was. Their ceremony was presided upon by their close friend Sean Nicholas, and musicians Kaleo Na’ea and Bill Flores sang and played steel guitar and ukelele. Ross' dad, Bruce, sang and played the Beatles' "I Will" on his guitar during the ceremony. We did the sound and mics for the ceremony :)
Our photographer was Kacie Jean, who took amazing pictures of everything - please visit her blog for more beautiful pictures of Christine and Ross' day. The florist was Grass Roots, and lighting and rentals were done by Tent Merchant.
After dinner, Ross Best Man Adam made what we believe to be the best Best Man Speech ever. Christine's maid of honor did justice in a fabulous follow up toast. Then the first dance. It was a surprise to all when Israel Kamakawiwo’ole's "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" record skipped and was replaced by Missy Elliot's "We Run This" - the bridal party came up and did a choreographed dance that made the crowd go wild! Hopefully someone got this on video - we'd love to see it again :) There was also a surprise performance form one of the guests who sang the entire 10 minute version of Rapper's Delight to the instrumental beat - a feat that we haven't ever seen accomplished until now.
The dance floor was packed and requests for new and old favorites came in and everyone had a fun and fabulous time. Christine and Ross toasted their friends and family (who all signed their surfboard "guestbook"), cut their Wedding Pie, and then they danced with their parents: Father/Daughter dance to “Isn’t She Lovely” by Stevie Wonder, Step-Father/Daughter dance to “High Tide or Low Tide” by Bob Marley, and Mother/Son dance to “So Happy Together” by The Turtles. We ended the night with Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" which had everyone singing into the night.
We sent Christine and Ross off with a sparkler exit. What a great day - Congratulations to Christine and Ross!!
