Melanie Treanor and Derek Coburn said “I do” at sunset on the beach, at the Radisson Aruba Resort Casino & Spa, surrounded by family members and friends.

Melanie, the Coordinator of Marketing & Events for the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders, visited the island for the first time at the end of May when the cheerleaders, a group of 41 beautiful and athletic women between the ages of 18 to 34 came here to shoot a glamorous calendar against the pretty backdrops of Aruba’s beaches.

The scenery and ambiance worked magic for Melanie and Derek who fell in love with the island, the Radisson, and the idea of getting married here. They decided to celebrate their nuptials at the end of the Summer inviting 35 wedding guests, including parents and former cheerleader friends, also colleagues Donald Wells, Director of Entertainment and Cheerleaders, and Stephanie Jojokian, Director of Choreography, for the famed cheerleaders.

The Radisson’s culinary team served an under-the-stars banquet in honor of the lovebird featuring chicken in puff pastry, spinach salad, lobster bisque, filet mignon and stuffed Caribbean lobster, and seabass with seasonal vegetables, paired with a premium brands open bar, served on the resort’s tropical pool deck, entertained by a professional DJ.
