An Affair to Remember

| March 7, 2013 | Parties National

THE PARTY The island’s socialites came out en masse for the magnificent fete that was the showstopping wedding of Fasi, son of the late Honolulu mayor, and Dar, former KITV presenter. THE PLAYERS Marivic and Ather Dar, Joyce Fasi, Crystal Pancipanci, Donne Dawson, Jojo Watumull, Lan Chung, Lindsey Higa, Chris Dawson THE SCENE Glamour was the word du jour at this luxury event that took over Waikīkī’s legendary Pink Palace. As Dar’s father is originally from Pakistan, South Asian flourishes wove their way throughout the celebration, from the traditional ceremony (oceanside, of course) to the bridal party’s meticulously sewed dresses to the festive dancing. Mahealani Richardson, KITV presenter and Dar’s former colleague, graciously served as the evening’s mistress of ceremonies. BEST IN SHOW Guests oohed and aahed over the beautiful mehndi (henna tattoos) that were exquisitely painted onto Dar’s hands and feet. -Travis Okimoto
