Chung Hoon (Uilama Kanahana) and Miss Alo Akina of Kohala, Hawaii, were bound together by him (Parker). The husbandʻs neighborhood held a reception at Kauluwela, which was followed by a feast.

The couple arrived at 8, and it was performed immediately. There was much waiting until the church was filled with the crowd. The young girl is the organist of the church, and a student of W. Tela [W. Taylor? W. Tell?]. W. Tela played the organ while the marriage ceremony took place. There was a reception held after at the girlsʻ school of Kawaiahao, and a feast the day following at Waikahalulu. The couple boarded the Kinau of this Saturday morning to spend their first days of marriage in the land of the husband, at Waimea, Hawaii.
