I was so excited when I received an email from Sergio wanting to surprise his family with a 20th Anniversary vow renewal on St Croix. Sergio was so thoughtful in all of the little touches he pulled together, including shopping for dresses and shoes for his wife and daughter and shipping them to me in advance; choosing beautiful, locally made, keepsake bracelets for the family lovingly inscribed with their wedding date and “family first”; setting up a spa day for the ladies to get them secretly ready for the event and coordinating a beach side picnic dinner. I dropped off the ladies’ outfits to the spa and swore the staff to secrecy… until they slipped on the dresses, Claudia & Vanessa thought they were going out to dinner.
It was truly an honor to help him pull off this heartfelt surprise and to see the joy on each family member’s face. This is a memory that I will treasure!
