    I will be sure to post some pictures tomorrow and report how everything goes today, I expect it to be very nice. My son and I need to vacate our room in 10 minutes so I don't see my wife prior to when she walks down the stairs at the Ritz as we head to the beach to renew our vows there.


    We are up to 11 people coming tonight, we invited a few more of our wonderful island friends to join and celebrate with us.

    Can't wait to see the photos and hear about your wives reaction to your beautiful gift.
    You have romance in your heart. Your family is lucky.
    If you are visiting the island in February we would love to have you guys over to the Surf Club. This will give you a chance to see the room categories and all facilities. I will have extra wrist bands for you guys.
    We do have an amazing kids club and nice arcade.

    My write up is not going to do yesterday any justice at all. It started with my beautiful wife walking down the long staircase at the Ritz in her gown, just perfect! She had her hair and makeup done and looked stunning. Our son was waiting for mom at the bottom of the stairs, and then escorted her to me and we walked out to the beach for the ceremony. It was a simple service with our close friends. Reverend Jeffrey did an outstanding job. The service was really special and his words made me cry like a baby, it was really touching!

    After the service we had a wonderful couple of bottles of bubbly to celebrate, did a ton of pictures as well. Speaking of pictures, Marc and Cassandra from Crooze Photography were great to work with. The did a great job of getting a ton of shots in a reasonable amount of time.

    So after the wedding a guy walks over to me and asks if I am Jayd.... that posts on the "other website" and of course I say yes, he introduces himself....small world. He knew we were having our service so he walked down from Moomba, watched and then introduced himself...really nice to meet you EDS.

    Back to the wedding, lol. We had a round of drinks at lobby bar and then headed to BLT for dinner. WOWOWOW was dinner amazing. We were assisted by Eddie and Sabrina and they were outstanding serving our large group. Every single one of us raved about our food, from the salads, to the various apps, oysters etc, filet, lobster, braised ribbs ....everything was perfect.

    After dinner they offered us a nice desert for free for and that was very good as well. We then went out for some drinks and gambled with our friends....a great way to renew our vows...just perfect!!!!

    I would also like the thank all of the ladies at the Ritz Club level for making sure everything was going to go smoothly for us reconfirming everything prior to it happening yesterday.

    Sounds like a perfect day. I am happy it met your expectations. Hey you could have got an after party recommendation from EDS, that guy seems to know where all the good stuff happens , very cool that he was able to watch your ceremony.
    7 trips in and still finding things to love. #8 will be great in November!
