Newlyweds Danielle and Montie Melton waited to cross the street Saturday as Hawaii Army National Guard Sgt. Phillip Cole directed traffic on Lewers Street in Waikiki. The Meltons, who were on their way to take their formal wedding portraits, had to walk down Lewers to reach their limousine, which was unable to pick them up because of security measures for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meetings. Maid of honor Michelle London has the couple's baby, Lillian, in the stroller. Despite the inconveniences, the Meltons say their time in Waikiki has been a dream come true.
