More on that wedding celebration up in Pauoa. 1898.

WEDDING PARTY IN PAUOA.

Yesterday afternoon, May 26, that grand luau was indeed held that was mentioned earlier, to honor the wedded couples in the uplands of Pauoa. There were many important people of Honolulu that were invited; attending was Princess Kaiulani and her father, Princes Kawananakoa and Kalanianaole and his wife, Judge Waikina [Whiting], and many more.

This was one of the beautiful wedding celebrations seen; there were many people who came, along with the abundant foods prepared for the guests who gave their congratulations to the wedded couples who were being honored that day. There too was the Kawaihau Glee Club who entertained the crowd. Everyone ate their fill, and drank till satiated of the waters of Kanaulu. We pray that the days following the youths be full of blessings.

[This is the wedding celebration mentioned earlier.

Also, does anyone know what the “wai a Kanaulu” is a reference to? It seems that it is a phrase that is used widely… ]
