On Saturday, wearing a simple white halter gown and haku lei, local girl and three-time world surfing champion Carissa Moore married Banan co-founder Luke Untermann, whom she had dated since high school. Bride and groom were barefoot as they said their vows on the lawn at the North Shore family estate of one of their Punahou classmates, across the road from the surf spot known as Pounders.
“I’m so happy with how everything turned out!” Moore said in a statement after the ceremony and luau. “Luke and I are so grateful. We’re just high school sweethearts who are so excited to be starting this next chapter of our lives together.”
The bride’s younger sister, Cayla Moore, was maid of honor, and wedding guests included professional surfers Stephanie Gilmore and fellow Hawaii surfers Coco Ho, Bethany Hamilton and current world champion John John Florence, who won his second world title at Pipeline today.
