KAHALA (KHNL-K5) - If you were wondering where 2/3rds of the weekend anchor team was this weekend, they were at the wedding of weekend sports anchor Reid Shimizu. He wed Joy Kamae on Saturday, June 23, 2007, at Kamehameha Schools' chapel. The reception was at The Kahala.
News anchor Diane Ako, who was the matchmaker, attended the reception. She was initially asked to be a bridesmaid, but couldn't because she had just had a baby less than 3 weeks prior. Sports director Russ Yamanoha, weather anchor Sharie Shima, morning anchor Marvin Buenconsejo, and reporter Beth Hillyer were among the KHNL crew who attended.
The couple's first honeymoon is at Princeville, Kauai. Next summer they plan to take a "real" honeymoon to Asia.
