Weddings

Welcome to our Weddings!  Here is just a sampling of some of our most recent wedding groups. 

Kelly & Reese were married on May 4, 2011 at Iberostar Laguna Azul in Varadero, Cuba.  We exchanged our vows on the Spa Terrace in front of 63 of our closest friends and family members.  This was a second marriage for both of us and all of our children were included in the wedding.  Kelly's son, George, walked her down the aisle and gave her away.  Reese's brother, Paul, performed the Sand Ceremony which had each of the children pour their own sand into the vase along with us to represent the union of the two families.  We added our own special touch to our wedding dance that surprised and delighted the entire group.  In the days following our wedding we treated our guests to a wonderful Catamaran excursion to Cayo Blanco - a truly perfect day, as well as a group trip in to Varadero.  Reese and Kelly stayed on for an additional week for their honeymoon.
