The Gosselins' Vow Renewal Ceremony
After 9 years of marriage, Jon and Kate Gosselin renewed their vows in Maui, Hawaii on Aug. 12, 2008. Their first wedding was supposed to be held in Hawaii, but they changed their plans because their families couldn't travel to attend. They'd been dreaming of a Hawaii wedding ever since, and were thrilled to have their children witness it and be a part of it. Here's how it went.

The Menu: The Gosselins and their guests dined on traditional Korean dishes like kimchi and bulgogi, along with traditional Hawaiian dishes.
The Wedding Cake: Jon and Kate chose a mango cake with vanilla frosting. (Kate insisted on vanilla frosting, because she thought the kids would make a mess with a colored frosting.) There were 10 flowers piled on top to represent each Gosselin.
The top tier represented Jon & Kate, and had the bible verse Isaiah 40:31 written on it: "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk, and not faint."
The second tier of the cake represented Mady and Cara, and had the bible verse Psalm 127: 3: "Behold, children are a gift from the Lord."
The third tier represented the sextuplets, and had the bible verse Psalms 139:13a and 14a written on it: "For you created my inmost being...I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
