When this cruise vacationer from Arlington, Texas contacted me to do a wedding vow renewal he emphasised that it was a surprise for his wife of 5 years. We did all the planning secretly, and even when my husband and I met them we kept up the charade of friends meeting friends.
We took them to the Governor's Beach, which right after Gustav was pristine, and also deserted.
I thought it was very thoughtful that J and his mother-in-law bought the dress his wife is wearing below, and he smuggled it on board the cruise ship and then asked her to wear it when they came ashore in Cayman. It was the perfect choice for the day and the occasion!
Joy (yes, we have the same name!) said she knew something was up, but she didn't know what even after I handed her the 'tropical' bouquet. J took her for a little walk on the beach while we set up for the ceremony and signing of the Renewal Certificate.
