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

    My wife is really nice, and really easy going- as long as I don't screw up travel plans, lol. We would love to meet you for drinks in Aruba, or Disney (when I am forced back) if I don't see you first in Aruba.

    I too would avoid the vacation weeks if possible, they kill my vacation budget...but I don't have many choices as I teach.
