Matt Loves Lindsay
Lindsay: Matt and I met working at a sushi restaurant in Boulder, Hapa. I was a hostess working part time, while I was still in college, and Matt a sushi chef. I remember the moment I asked my coworker who was the guy behind the sushi bar with red beard and the rest was history. One of our first dates he surprised me with taking me to L&L BBQ in Denver.
The Ring: The ring came from Matt's Great-Grandmother who immigrated
from Ireland. Her family had to pawn the ring during the great
depression but was eventually able to get it back. The ring has
always been very special to Matt's family and when Matt's father
proposed to his mother, he took the ring to a jeweler and had the
jeweler make a copy. Matt's Aunt inherited the original ring. Once
she heard Matt was looking for an engagement ring for me, she called him
up. She told him if he could get a flight out to NY then he could
have the ring. "I knew of the ring and it's significance, because this
same Aunt lent it to Matt's sister, Katie, for her something blue for her
wedding a couple of years ago." Matt proposed on the top of Haleakala
as the sun rose while they were home over the summer.

Lindsay danced to 'No Kipukai' By Bill Kaiwa. It was a very special song because her family presently owns Kipukai, located on Kauai. Her Ancestor, Jack Waterhouse, bought the property back in 1948, which the song acknowledges him. It is a very sacred place to Lindsay's family. Lindsay took 8 years of hula and was taught the song under Kumu, Gordean Bailey. She was lucky enough to practice the song with her before the wedding a couple of times. AND was able to keep it a secret from Matt!
