Aerosmith's Steven Tyler serenades the couple

Mekela Lumbard and Jason Swing April 24, 2011 Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown Los Angeles   After only a few dates, Mekela Lumbard and Jason Swing were inseparable. Jason proposed two years later during a Caribbean cruise, and it turned out an engagement wasn’t the only surprise: Mekela also found out she was pregnant. She gave birth to a baby boy on Easter Sunday, and the couple decided to wed the following Easter so two of their most important memories would be entwined. Hawaiian native Mekela blended elements from her culture with western traditions, exchanging leis as well as rings. The Easter-inspired wedding was decorated with spring colors mixed with a soft gray, chosen to coordinate with the architecture of the concert hall. And the surprises continued with Bollywood dancers and Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler singing Mekela’s favorite song, “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” for their first dance.
