When we were first contacted by Karen, one very excited mother of the bride we couldn't get over her energy and excitement for her beautiful daughter who was traveling to a secluded island in Fiji on the other side of the world to get married. Flying all the way from Austin Texas these heavy lifters were a ton of fun to work with and Royal Davui put on an impressive show despite Cyclone Winston gathering strength in the east on the day. Amazingly, the weather held out and made for a perfect Valentine's day wedding on the sand quay near Royal Davui Island! Kady & Cody were pronounced husband and wife after an emotional and beautiful exchange of vows on their very own piece of paradise in the middle of the ocean.

We wish the Skinners' all the best and thank them for inspiring me to head back to the gym and maybe give that crossfit stuff a go! :)
