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.
