My wife and I were married in 1999 and spent our honeymoon in Aruba. We loved the island so much that we bought a timeshare and now go back once or twice a year for vacation. Over the past few years we’ve been talking about renewing our wedding vows in Aruba. After seeing photos of many sunset weddings in the island newspaper, Aruba Today (http://www.arubatoday.com/), we began our search for wedding resources in Aruba. After much correspondence via email with different hotel managers, we decided to have our ceremony on Eagle Beach in front of the Amsterdam Manor (http://www.amsterdammanor.com/). The staff at the Amsterdam put us in touch with Lissy Lampe of Ceremonies & Celebrations in Aruba (candcaruba@yahoo.com). We emailed Lissy back and forth while we, slowly but surely, began deciding on our wedding details. We decided to go with a simple ceremony at sunset. Lissy said she would arrange everything we wanted. We weren’t sure what to expect once we got there but after meeting Lissy in person our minds were put at ease. We had requested a special bridal bouquet with orchards creating a “spray” effect. We weren’t sure the florist would be able to satisfy our request but when the flowers arrived we were extremely happy to see we had gotten what we asked for. The day of the ceremony was cloudy and gray. My wife was in tears that afternoon thinking it would be the only day of the week that didn’t end with a brilliant sunset. Somehow, just about the time we started walking towards the beach, the clouds began to slowly lift on the horizon. We had an incredible ceremony and as it ended we had an awesome sunset, just in time for our photo-shoot.
Just before the ceremony began we were introduced to our photographer, Angela Munzenhofer of Bella Photography (http://bellarubaphoto.blogspot.com/). Angela is a pro! She immediately started clicking away and took full advantage of the beautiful sunset. We were pleasantly surprised the next morning when we found a full page in Aruba Today (http://www.arubatoday.com/) devoted to our wedding! Everything happened just as Lissy and Angela said it would. We received all our photos on CD as well as a wedding album.
Lissy is absolutely amazing! She brought it all together and made it happen. We had the beach wedding of our dreams and Angela recorded the event. If you are thinking about an aruba wedding or even renewing your vows you can contact:
