Love is ageless, as anyone who’s been married a long time can prove!
Regardless of the years together, it’s always wonderful to give old love anew life.
And that’s exactly what seven of our resident couples recently did on February 11, as they celebrated their love by re-dedicating their marriages in a very special vow renewal ceremony.
For some, their wedding day wasn’t what they hoped it would be; a quick ceremony with the Justice of the Peace as husbands-to-be were shipped off for military duty; or in ceremonies created to appease families with different traditions and expectations. This time, was just for them. A reflection of who they’ve grown to be as a couple, and a celebration of the love that is uniquely theirs.
Our beautiful Anchor Room was transformed into a wonderful ceremony and reception space, as friends and family gathered to watch these devoted duos jointly take the plunge again.
Before the ceremony, the happy couples posed for portraits. Then they walked down the aisle and, led by an officiant, simultaneously renewed their vows aloud, followed by a simultaneous cutting of seven personalized wedding cakes, each created uniquely for each couple by our head pastry chef. A champagne toast and reception extended the festivities.
Even the local press showed up — with TV, print and web features sharing this fun event!
We’re happy to help our residents celebrate special milestones in their lives. Watch for future celebrations on our Facebook page!
