Bret Hedican and Kristi Yamaguchi Wedding


Kona, HI

Bret Hedican married Kristi Yamaguchi on July 8, 2000 at the Mauna Lani Resort on Hawaii’s Big Island. The couple exchanged vows in a sunset ceremony in front of 300 guests, including ice skaters Peggy Fleming, Scott Hamilton and Brian Boitano. The bride wore a hand-painted silk Vera Wang gown and diamond tiara by Fred Leighton.

A reception followed the ceremony. Guests dined on peppered beef, Hawaiian snapper, and a strawberry and cream wedding cake for dessert.

San Francisco pop band Pride & Joy performed dance classics, and at one point, the groom serenaded his bride with Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love.”
