Why get married near water when you can get married ON water? Karen and Joe met at an outrigger canoe race, and planned to celebrate their nuptials in the most appropriate way: ON CANOES! They first rowed out in separate canoes and lined up for the vows. Then it was a big dunk and a smooch to seal the deal! Snow cones, candy centerpieces, and waterfront shenanigans were had for the rest of the day. Thanks to Erin Leigh for photographing and sharing the fun with us.
