This is Brandi Beasley. Pre-wedding. Thusly she's still Beasley. Doesn't she look nervous? Yeah, she was a wreck. And this was shortly before the tent outside collapsed on the wedding cake.
This is Brandi and Heath with his parents - post wedding.
This is Brandi and Heath with Bob, the officiant. Bob is a Minister of Something. Yep, that's what I said.
I think Heath wants to eat Bob. Scary.
Brandi and Heath exchanged leis as a symbol of their wedding vows. Nice, but not very permanant (which is why we all insisted on the rings). Heath got a nice big 'un.
They made me sign somethin' about witnessing somethin'. I dunno. I protested; sayin' I didn't see nothin'. But they all got mad, so I signed. See how relieved Brandi looks?
Heath's looking a little contemplative here. Hmm.
And now I gotta sign somethin' else! Damn these people. Where's my pineapple champagne? All this interferin' with my drinkin'.
Aw! Aren't they cute? And they're going to have beautiful babies; everybody says so.
Now Bob, the officiant, who is Minister of Something, signs off on the marraige. This is just before he sticks the certificate in the cake.
OK. Insert your best caption here.
The happy couple.
The crowd became unruly, so they plied us with booze.
The happy couple prepare to toast each other.
I had my doubts about this. Brandi's not real good with complicated hand movements. Of course, you can't count the secret handshake because she practices that daily.
The reception was moved into the pavilion after the brief sprinkle of rain. But the cake was saved yet again!
The happy couple toasting one another.
Our first team effort as a married couple - the cutting of the cake.
The wedding took place on the grounds of Tedeschi Winery in what's called the "Upcountry" of Maui.
Those grins say it all, don't they?
Brandi Beasley Willis with her Matron of Honor. And look, I got lei'd too!
The happily married couple at the reception later that day. Don't they look cute in their matching outfits? Thankfully, at the last minute Brandi was able to convince Heath that she should wear the dress.
... and two mai tais later ... aren't we happy?
This is the biggest banyan tree on the island (to my knowledge). It's in downtown Lahaina and takes up an entire block.
