James Gandolfini gets married to Al Hoffman's "The Hawaiian Wedding Song"

Elvis recorded it; so did Andy Williams. Click this line for coverage of wedding

Actually, Al and his 1950's partner Dick Manning did not entirely write it; "The Hawaiian Wedding Song" was written in 1926 by Charles King for his operetta, "Prince of Hawaii."

Al and Dick gave it new lyrics, something they had also done to their hit "There's No Tomorrow", translated from "O Solo Mio", the results of which ended up a hit for Tony Martin.
