1286. “We are so glad we found you” – Damien and Debbie from Seattle, WA – 1/1/8 – St. Peter’s By The Sea (this wedding impressed me for a number of reasons. It was the first wedding in Hawaii of the year, we did it at sunrise. This couple had been married, they got divorced and then decided to get remarried. What a way to start the new year. I am sure many couples struggle and are tempted to give up. I hope Damien and Debbie’s example is an inspiration to all of us. Never give up!)
