I don't do a lot of Sunday weddings for visitors, but sometimes a couple doesn't arrive on island until Saturday and then if they're only staying for the weekend, they want to be married on Sunday. Of course the government office which issues the Special Marriage License is closed on the weekend so we have to make special arrangements.
This Texas couple were staying at the Grand Cayman Beach Suites and wanted to be married at My Secret Cove. I went with some trepidation, since MSC is not so secret anymore, especially on the weekends, but it worked out fine.

"Let’s grow old together, beginning with today. Let’s work slowly with each other and build a relationship that we can both enjoy being a part of. Let’s share love and understanding that neither of us is perfect; we both subject to human frailties. Let’s hold each other close and whisper through the night, pledging our love, honouring our commitment. Let’s encourage each other to pursue our dreams, even when we’re weary from trying. Let’s expect the best that we both have to give and still love when we fall short of our expectations. Let’s be friends and respect each other’s individual personality and give one another room to grow. Let’s be candid with each other and point out strengths and weaknesses. Let’s understand each other’s personal philosophy, even if we don’t agree. Let’s lie awake long into the night sharing our innermost secrets. Let’s be friends as well as lovers. Let’s laugh at time and plan with each other and wonder how we ever got along without this love we’ve found. Let’s never take for granted these moments that we’ve shared, but always be reminded of how intensely we have learned to live, how completely we have learned to love. Let’s grow old together and look back on life and smile."
