Marco Marriott, Sanibel Harbour Marriott, Marco South Beach and Marco Beach Ocean Resort – 4 venues 5 weddings/vow renewals. It’s been a very busy month of officiating and each event gave me pause to consider the love, devotion, family support and blended families that ushered in a new life together. Destination wedding/vow renewals are quite popular in southwest Florida and for the most part the weather is uneventful – bright sunshine, magnificent sunsets, smiles and celebrations make a perfect day–well PERFECT.
One of my favorite moments was a Sand Ceremony blending 2 families with 6 children –a total of 8 colors to create a sand sculpture of earth-tones (Panera Colors) to take home as a memento. Lots of fun and playfulness in the “pouring” set the tone for the celebration.
