On Saturday, in the beautiful Southern California town of San Clemente, friends and lovers from all corners were gathered, to shower adoration upon longtime lovers, childhood sweethearts, and one of the surf world’s favorite couples, Kolohe Andino and Maddie Aldrich. 

“I thought I was going to a wedding, not a trade show,” Groomsman Jeremy Carter said of the star-studded affair as he opened his best man’s speech. 

Amongst the signatures in the guestbook, Shane and Noah Beschen, Matt Biolos, Sage Erickson, Coco Ho, Riss Moore, Tia Blanco, Morgan Maassen, every pro surfer you could imagine (Brett Simpson, Yadin Nicol, Jet Schilling, Keanu Asing, Nat Young, Ian Crane and Pat Gudauskas) and perhaps most notably of all, childhood arch-rival and current World Champion, John Florence, who flew over for the lush affair with his girl, Lauryn Cribb. 

The crowd hit the dance floor at the DJ’s first note, the ladies leaving no neck uncraned and the crowd only growing denser, looser as the evening carried forth, an open bar serving His and Her cocktails, and not a glass going dry well into the cool California night…
