    vow renewal help

    Hello All, I am starting to plan for our summer vow renewal in August. We are looking for a simple renewal with a religious figure- It will just be my wife, son and myself plus a possible handful of people at most. We want to do it on the beach at the Ritz Carlton and celebrate at BLT after. I received a quote for the Ritz and I would say there is zero chance of them doing it.
    We don't need flowers, music or anything like that. A few photos would be great and a nice short service.
    Does anyone have any experience/names references for me? I probably should get moving on this soon, lol. Thanks.

    Vow Renewal



    i think too you should allow your son to participate....after all he is a product of the marriage!
    he could have something important that he'd like to say.

    i think it'll be trrific.

    A few years ago we had a vow renewal planned with flowers, pedestals, an officiant, chairs, etc. My husband was informed while on vacation that he & 800 of his employees & co-workers had been laid off. We (well, I) flipped out and cancelled the whole renewal thing - I was felt it was a waste of money at that time. The family that we were with talked me into going thru with it on a completely scaled down level. We had our friend Bryan Morris (a photographer on the island) still do pictures and he picked up simple flowers for my hair and a single rose for my husband. My SIL created and performed an adorable ceremony & my nephew took video & played music from his cell phone & bluetooth speaker. We brought a frame to do a sand ceremony and a different color sand for each kid - mine & Rich's came right from the beach. It was more than I ever could have hoped for. Just us, my family & good friend, on the beach in Aruba. We pulled a few chairs over from the beach for my parents to sit, everyone else stood & danced together. It was just great. We went back to the Pata Pata bar at LaCabana for a few drinks & more dancing and then to Gianni's for dinner with the family.

    My Avatar is from that day. Here are a few other pics
