Kelly and Chris were married at Sugarman Estate in Wailea-Makena, Hawaii on October 11. The bride wore a sweetheart a-line wedding gown with a lace bodice and ruffled tulle skirt, accessorized with shoulder-length veil in her half-up/half-down ‘do, while the groom wore a gray suit, accessorized with a skull-themed bow tie. The maid of honor wore a short navy blue chiffon dress and carried a bouquet of roses, berries, dusty millers, and ferns. The ceremony took place at sunset with the Pacific Ocean as the backdrop stretching from the shores of Honua Kai Lani to the islands of Kahoolawe, Molokini, and beyond. The couple decided to write their own vows. “There are no words I could ever relay about how I feel about you . . . I could only think of a movie — Jerry McGuire — you literally complete me, you make me want to be a better man, you make me a better man, and even though it’s taken 17 long years, it was worth the wait,” Chris said. Fun fact: They dated in high school and went to Arizona State University together! That’s why “I always knew you were the one,” Kelly said. After wiping away the tears and sealing their commitment with a kiss, it was official! The reception followed underneath a framed tent decorated with hanging lanterns, overflowing centerpieces atop moss-covered wooden boxes, and “mahalo” (thank you) notes at each place setting.
