When it came to planning their wedding for fifty-three guests (thirty-nine adults and fourteen kids) in Hawaii, Billie and Ryen knew what they wanted more than anything: a sober, kid-friendly destination wedding on the island of Kauai. As Billie explained:

Deciding to have a sober wedding was incredibly important to both Ryen and Billie—anything else wasn’t even an option:
