Double party showdown part 1...

So I had two parties to go to,

This one for my friend's former elementary student who was getting married.  The bride n groom are both former volleyball players for the University o Hawai'i at Manoa.  It was a pretty nice venue, it was held at the Bishop Museum, so ya, they dropped some bucks, lol.  The wedding ceremony was right there on the property.

After the wedding was done, the reception was there on the property too.  The tent was pretty killer, looked very UFOish.

To hold us over until the wedding party arrived after their photo taking we had some pupu's, which ws sushi, soy beans, fried salmon, smoked meat, potato salad and shumai.

 I also snapped away at the centerpiece n favors.

The wedding party arrived and there was a Chinese lion dance to bring luck to the newly married couple (and guests).  As part of the tradition money is offered to the dancing lions.

Then there was dinner, whew fully loaded.  On the menu there was raw fish, stew, squid luau, potato salad, chicken long rice, sweet potato, kalua pig, 'opihi, kulolo and rice, all local fabs...mmm.

Then there was dessert...

And finally a night view of the museum building...
