|At the tender age of 4, Jake Shimabukuro received his first ukulele from his mother and now has become one of the best ukulele virtuoso in Hawaii as well as in the world. He first met Kelly Yamasato, a physician in Obstetrics and Gynecology, during a blind date set up by his stepsister. They were supposed to go on a real date afterward, but both got caught up with their busy schedules and it's not until 3-1/2 years later that they were able to rekindle the spark that they first had.
When Jake decided to propose to Kelly, his uncle, Honolulu jeweler Wayne Kam, helped him select the perfect ring for his future bride. Of course Kelly said yes and the wedding planning for close to 300 guests was under way.
Both the ceremony and reception were held at the lovely JW Marriott Ihilani Resort & Spa. Kelly looked radiant in her Morilee by Madeline Gardner silk wedding gown, and Jake couldn't be more handsome in his Dior suit. They were surrounded by their loved ones. It truly was a beautiful day.
Congratulations, Jake and Kelly! Thank you for having Visionari capture all the wonderful memories of your special day!
