Palm Beach — Michael & Jeff from Toledo, Ohio, who have known each other since the Millennium, exchanged vows at sunset at the Divi Aruba Phoenix Beach Resort. Wedding guests were treated to pre-ceremony cocktails with unforgettable Tina Turner’s music videos as backdrop. Then a local reverend officiated over the blessing which was followed by an intimate dinner, toes in the sand.
After the cutting of the two-tier cake, Michael & Jeff release flying sky lanterns into the sparkling heavens over Palm Beach, for an extra measure of good luck and happiness.
The just-wed couple enjoyed a blanket of love made off friends coming in from as far as New Orleans. Ring bearers Lulu and Spike, two tiny Yorkshire Terriers, she in a custom pink gown and he in a Tommy Bahamas shirt, enjoyed the festivities as much as the two-legged crowd.
Michael & Jeff have been coming to Aruba on vacation for the past thirteen years, same time each year, Thanksgiving Week. This year, their visit is extra special, as they invited their local friends to attend their beautiful, much-anticipated wedding celebration, on Saturday.
