THE Grand Pacific Hotel had its first wedding reception on Saturday, hosting the union of businessman Bradley Hall and former Fiji Airways Boeing 737 and 767 pilot Adrianna Tiko.
The wedding reception was attended by 150 guests who enjoyed the food and wine prepared by the staff members of the newly renovated Grand Pacific Hotel.
"They have great services and we are happy with how things went today," Mrs Hall said.
"The food was great and everything about today's reception was just amazing.
"They really did it with style and I guess they wanted to show people what they can do for events like this and it's perfect."
Mrs Hall, 37, and Mr Hall, 47, dated for two years before Mr Hall proposed to the Lomaloma, Vanuabalavu beauty in California one and half years ago.
An excited Mrs Hall, who has maternal links in Savaii, Samoa, said it was her desire to get married in Fiji and this was in her favour as the new couple managed to secure GPH as the venue for their wedding reception.
"The wedding was postponed about three times because of the renovations works being done here at the hotel," she said.
The couple first met at the Hilton Hotel in Nadi but before that had met on five different occasions where they would say a brief hello and moved on.
"It was funny because on one occasion Brad was just checking out of Holiday Inn and I was checking in. We met at the front desk. Little did I know that as soon as I checked in, he also checked in," she said.
