REAL LIFE HAWAII WEDDING: TASHA + ALEX.Tasha and Alex decided to honor their family by having both a traditional Laotian and American wedding. Their Laotian ceremony was held in their hotel suite and was attended by nearly 100 family members who crowded around the couple to partake in the traditions that unfolded. The elders prepared the ceremony and food and gifts was a central part of it. Emotions ran high, and both the bride and groom wept as their family bestowed their love and prayers upon them. The next day their American wedding took place at Hilton Hawaiin Village's beautiful white chapel adorned with tall glass windows.
