Renewed November 19, 2002
“Our family started with our wedding on February 2 , 2000 at Hawksnest Beach in St. John, U.S.Virgin Islands. From the moment we set foot on the ferry dock on Cruz Bay, I knew we had picked the perfect place to get married. Our wedding coordinator canceled on us at the last minute and we were referred to an officiant who would marry us on Hawksnest Beach. We agreed, sight unseen. We made all the arrangements via telephone and Internet. The day could not have been more perfect. We wanted a spiritual and intimate ceremony, and we only included elements that were special to us. After our ceremony, our coordinator, Anne Marie, mentioned how great it would be if we returned to Hawksnest Beach sometime in the future to christen our first child. We left our hearts there and dreamed about the day we would bring our child to our own personal paradise. standing in the azure blue St John waters with Anne Marie leading us once again.”
“On Nov 19th, 2002 we took Anne Marie up on her suggestion and brought our daughter, Lauryn, to Hawksnest beach, where we christened her in the exact same place where we started our life together. It felt so beautiful to have her join us as we renewed our wedding vows standing in the azure blue St. John’s waters with Anne Marie leading us once again. Even better, Lauryn wore the same baptism dress that I wore as a baby…which, incidentally, happened on February 2, 1972, our wedding anniversary!
Our son, Brandon Tyler, was born on October 17, 2001, and he also christened on Hawksnest Beach. We’ve just celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary, and we’ll return to the paradise of St. John to renew our vows as a family of four.”
