A Perfectly Polished Ponytail
While a ponytail may take just about 30 seconds to do, the prep work should begin months before the wedding because this style is all about long and lustrous locks. A bride should use a deep-conditioning hair mask weekly, get regular trims to chop off split ends, and ease up on the hair colouring and heat styling in advance! On the big day, she may simply add a pretty embellishment to be aisle ready.

Kathryn (Katie) O’Brien Trout met Douglas (Doug) Martin Ackerman at the wedding of some mutual friends, not knowing, one day, the celebration would be for them. “We met again a couple of years later at a charity event and went on our first date,” Katie says. “I soon [went] to Rome to witness the papal conclave, where Pope Francis was elected. Doug and I racked up a huge phone bill across the ocean.”
She knew from that initial separation Doug might be the one to change everything. “The first time I met Katie, I had to get to know her better,” Doug says. “She gave me that special feeling I have been looking for all my life.”

The next step seemed natural. With a ready excuse to take them to the Windy City, he set out to plan a proposal. “There is a charming Italian restaurant she loves; I knew that would be the place. All I had to do was book a nice place to stay, fuel the plane – and let Chicago do the rest,” Doug tells. Caught by surprise, Katie said yes through blinding tears.
The wedding represented the three pillars of their lives. “We wanted to incorporate faith, family and friends,” she says. “We knew the wedding needed to be in Rome, where our love story began. Thanks to my family’s dear friend, His Eminence Justin Cardinal Rigali, we got married inside St. Peter’s Basilica, which has always been a dream of mine.”
The bride honored Doug’s deceased mother, alongside her own, by bearing their school pins on her bouquet. She also carried a rosary, gifted by her matron of honor and grandmother. “I took a long walk, with the Swiss Guard escorting and holding tourists back, to the chapel. The ‘Wedding March,’ which is no longer allowed to be played in the states, swelled from the organ,” Katie recalls. “I saw Doug face-to-face for the first time that day, and my heart skipped. It all got very real at that moment.”
Doug experienced a similar sensation upon seeing his bride across the aisle. “I cherished the sight of the most beautiful woman in the world, standing in the middle of St. Peter’s Basilica – ready to marry me – and the overwhelming presence of God,” he says. “It was like we were in a fairy tale.”
The celebrations continued with a luncheon at their Italian hotel and, again, in St. Louis at the Racquet Club Ladue. The couple honeymooned in Tuscany and Portofino.
On September 21, the Okinawa Prefecture Culture, Tourism and Sports Division summarized the state of achievement of resort weddings in the first half of 2016.
It announced that 6,553 couples had had resort weddings, a rise of 6.4 percent for the same period last year. During the first half of this year, approximately 109,000 tourists visited Okinawa for resort weddings – the figure includes wedding attendants. The economic flow-on to Okinawa is estimated to exceed 10.4 billion yen.
The Okinawa Prefecture aims to have resort weddings for 15,000 couples this year. In 2015, 14,174 couples had weddings. If the rate of the first half of the year continues, it is expected that the goal will be achieved. A breakdown of resort weddings shows that 5,633 couples were from Japan, which is a two percent increase and 920 couples were from overseas, which is an increase of 44.9 percent.
Chapel weddings were the most popular, accounting for 73 percent of the total number of couples that had resort weddings. Photo weddings, in which a couple takes photographs, only made up 22 percent. Three percent of the total had either an Okinawan style of wedding using Ryukyuan dresses, a wedding at a beach, or an uninhabited island.
Meanwhile, “Guerilla photo shooting” in which foreign couples take wedding photos at ceremonial halls, public facilities and tourist facilities without authorization, has become a new issue. A spokesperson for the Prefectural Tourism Promotion Division said, “Collaborating with the Okinawa Resort Wedding Association, which urged people to stop guerilla photo shooting, we are trying hard to keep everyone informed about public rules.”
