A Kauai Gem
Several years ago my youngest daughter and my son-in-law wanted to be married on Kauai. My wife did a google search and came across Blue Hawaii Weddings. Carol called and talked to a person named Larry Rivera. He explained that we could arrange a wedding very similar to the one in Elvis Presley's movie, Blue Hawaii at Coco Palms. The ride on the outrigger canoe and everything. My daughter being a huge Elvis fan, do you think she would turn this wedding arrangement down. Right! NO WAY.
We made the plans and came to Kauai. Our first meeting with Larry and his wife Gloria was special. They made us feel as if we had known them all our lives. We found out he was a song writer and entertainer as well. He invited us to Kukui Grove Shopping Center (The Big Mall in Lihue) to hear him perform. We went and fell in love with his music and since then his family. I call him the Don Ho of Kauai. He celebrated his 80th birthday last year. This guy is STILL performing and has become a licensed minister in the State of Hawaii. He now conducts the vows for his weddings.
If you are coming to Kauai you can catch Larry performing at these places:
Kauai Museum on Saturdays at 1:00PM
Coconut Market Place Fridays at 5:00PM
Kukui Grove the first Friday of every month at 7:00PM
Cafe Portofino (Over looking Kalapaki Beach) every Wednesday at 7:00 PM This show is the longest running entertainment show in Hawaii history. Called "Nightcap with Larry".
Hope you get to know Larry.
