More on that wedding celebration up in Pauoa. 1898.


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… ]

Marriage information found outside of the Vital Statistics column, 1898.


Up in the valley of Pauoa, on this past Thursday, May 26, at 2 in the afternoon, a great party was given at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. J. K. Mano, to celebrate the binding tightly with the gold cord of holy matrimony, some youths. There were two secure unions that happened at the same time, but there were perhaps just a few minutes separating one from the other.

The youths to whom belonged the honor of the day were Mr. Kamaka Kaoheloahi and Miss Annie Aarona, both of Honolulu; they were the couple married first. The second following them were Mr. Henry Rogers of Honolulu and Hattie Kealoha of Kauai. It was 2 p. m. exactly when those invited began to dine. Marriage is a good thing for all people.
