An enormous wave crashed over a wedding ceremony in Hawaii, but the couple claims they still had an amazing time at their wedding. The couple, Dillon and Riley Murphy, weren't too worried about the huge waves as much as they were about the rain Tropical Storm Darby might have brought on their wedding day.
 
On Saturday, the Big Island-based couple, who had planned an outdoor wedding, welcomed guests to Hulihee Palace in Kailua-Kona. The pair decided to start relocating some items away from the sea wall as the storm started to abate and while the ocean was still swaying due to the erratic weather.

"We were kind of right at the moment where we were going to start moving a couple things and, yeah, this big wall basically just showed up. And luckily there was no food in any of the containers. The cake luckily made it," Dillon said in an interview with KHON.
 
Instagram users shared videos of the moment the enormous wave slammed down and leaped over the sea wall. In the video, wedding guests are socializing around several tables and standing on the grass while a massive wave wall is seen rapidly approaching the rocky sea wall.

The visitors become more alert and start to move away from the wall. As the waves breaks up and over the wall, it causes many tables and décor to topple over. The waves showered some of the people, and there is a commotion that can be heard among the audience.
 
More waves slammed into the grass and swamped what would have been the dance floor, but everyone looked to be in high spirits as they assisted one another and retreated farther away. "We didn’t have our dance floor, but nobody seemed to mind, at the end of the night we were all like dancing in the mud, and it was amazing," said the bride.
 
The tremendous waves in the background allowed the pair to take some fantastic pictures. Dillion said, "We did end up getting some good pictures with, like, waves splashing up, and the ceremony was beautiful."
 
The pair expressed that the day went even better than expected, despite the dance floor and other decor getting washed away. Dillon claimed he still had a fun wedding, while Riley said her wedding day was perhaps much more memorable than if the waves hadn't hit.
