When these two first met, Carlos recalls finding Doug very handsome and loving his smile; Doug fell in love with Carlos almost immediately, that guy just seemed to be an honest and trustworthy person, in addition to being hilarious! So when Carlos had no hesitation, no fear, no second thoughts he then knew Doug was the person he wanted to marry, like everything told him he was the one…
Doug & Carlos married a year ago in Hawaii, and this year they took an anniversary trip to Bora Bora and Moorea.
Moorea is so gorgeous that the two of them decided that they would want to mark their 1-year wedding anniversary day with a ceremony… this was less than 48 hours to the day!
They reached out to me on the Wednesday night and by the following morning they had answered my questionnaires (well done, guys!) so that I could write a personalized and heartfelt ceremony for them that was to take place on the Friday afternoon on a private beach.
They love to travel and want each time they’ll celebrate their wedding anniversary to be unique with the culture and customs of the location infused so I incorporated a wrists tying with a Ti leaf ritual in their ceremony. They were both wearing a red pareu (Carlos’ favorite color) that was gifted to them during their stay in Bora Bora, as well as flower head crowns and leis typical of Tahiti.
I am so happy that I was given the opportunity to write and officiate your Moorea vow renewal ceremony, and wish you many many happy years of marriage, and fun travels across the world.
