Velia and Giovanni, 50th Wedding Anniversary, Gorizia, Italy

101_9393This post is a special one. My parents recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary and I was fortunate enough to be there with them at La Locanda Goriziana, in Gorizia, Italy to celebrate!

We decorated the venue with simple flower arrangements and had old photos to pass around while we told stories. My parents still have the original outfits they wore on their wedding day and we were able to put them on display as a special touch!

It was a beautiful day and a wonderful reminder that true love is forever!

weddings-in-playa-del-carmenBefore it was the always in demand Grand Coral Beach Club, this stunning venue on the beach was called Blucacao. It was just as beautiful and secluded, and it was the perfect spot for Denee and Jamie’s amazing Mayan Ceremony and wedding celebration!

A Little Bit of Wedding Humor!

IMG_0362Wedding season is about to go into full swing here in the Riviera Maya. November is the start of high season and we are about to get very busy! We wanted to take a little time to share this cute article we read a while back about kids and their views on marriage. A tiny pause to laugh before the fun begins!

HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHO TO MARRY?

“You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming.” – Alan, age 10

“No person really decides before they grow up who they’re going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you’re stuck with.” – Kristen, age 10

HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED?

WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE?

“Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough.”- Lynnette, age 8

“On the first date, they just tell each other lies and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date.” – Martin, age 10

WHAT WOULD YOU DO ON A FIRST DATE THAT WAS TURNING SOUR?

“I’d run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns.” – Craig, age 9

WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE?

“When they’re rich.” – Pam, age 7

“The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn’t want to mess with that.” – Curt, age 7

“The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It’s the right thing to do.” – Howard, age 8

IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED?

“It’s better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them.”  - Anita, age 9

HOW WOULD THE WORLD BE DIFFERENT IF PEOPLE DIDN’T GET MARRIED?

“There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn’t there?” -Kelvin, age 8
